American Royals by Katherine McGee centres around the premise of what it would be like if the USA had a royal family?
When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne.
As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except for the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her.
And then there’s Samantha’s twin, Prince Jefferson. If he’d been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.
This book has everything, royalty. romance, betrayal, drama, it’s deliciously face-paced in tempo, much like Melanie Blakes The Thunder Girls, it’s a rollercoaster ride, with characters you root for, characters you hate. You are compelled to keep turning until the gut-wrenching end, that leaves the reader having to wait impatiently for book 2 in the series to be released.
This is a book that would make an amazing Netflix series. It also reminds us of an old ITV show called The Palace which featured similar story arcs. ( You can watch bing the entire series below, it originally aired over 10 years ago in 2008, and is an absolute guilty pleasure.)
