Her Royal Highness
Her Royal Highness | Rachel Hawkins
Regal romance abounds in this flirty, laugh-out-loud companion novel to Royals, by New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins. Millie Quint is devastated when she discovers that her sort-of-best friend/sort-of-girlfriend has been kissing someone else. Heartbroken and ready for a change of pace, Millie decides to apply for scholarships to boarding schools . . . the farther from Houston the better. Soon, Millie is accepted into one of the world's most exclusive schools, located in the rolling highlands of Scotland. Here, the country is dreamy and green; the school is covered in ivy, and the students think her American-ness is adorable. The only problem: Mille's roommate Flora is a total princess. She's also an actual princess. Of Scotland. At first, the girls can't stand each other, but before Millie knows it, she has another sort-of-best-friend/sort-of-girlfriend. Princess Flora could be a new chapter in her love life, but Millie knows the chances of happily-ever-afters are slim . . . after all, real life isn't a fairy tale . . . or is it? New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings the feels and the laughs to her latest romance.

If you want a super quick read that is as cheesy and adorable as possible, I definitely recommend Her Royal Highness. I mean, who doesn‘t want to find love at a Scottish boarding school?

This is the second book in the royal series. Millie is an American who is very excited to go to school in Scotland. What she doesn't expect is getting paired to be roommates with Flora who is a princess. They don't get along at first but the more they get to know each other the more they start to like each other. They are both surprised when they find out they both have feeling for each other. I really hope there will be a book about Sebastian!

Mehso-so

This was recommended to me as "something a bit like Red, White & Royal Blue" but all they had in common were royals and queer folks. At 50% the two mains had had maybe four interactions and they hated each other, and then suddenly they were all over one another. Chemistry? What chemistry? It was cute, I enjoyed it, but it had it's shortcomings.

ShyBookOwl Bummer! I can't stand the hate-each-other love-each-other trope. It's why I cringe at rom coms and why I'm literally afraid to pick up romance novels. 4mo
okthislooksbad @ShyBookOwl I kinda like them if they're done right, but there's a difference between a slow burn and "gee whiz you're the worst oh no wait hi ily" within 25 pages. ?? 4mo

So many tropes I love in this sapphic royal romance: enemies to lovers, mean girl is secretly a softie, nerdy kid falls for popular kid, royal falls for a regular person. Not to mention seeing some of the places I just visited in Edinburgh (Holyrood, the Royal Mile, etc) mentioned was pretty cool. If you're looking for a YA f/f romance this is definitely a cute one and satisfied my royal romance itch since reading Red, White & Royal Blue.

So, so excited for this royal romance (I maybe have a hankering for more since reading Red, White, and Royal Blue)

Weird machinations to get a young Texan to Scotland and then to have her rooming with the princess ... of Scotland (there‘s no separate royal fam there, to bee clear). Enemies to girlfriends with a queen who obstructs but then drops weirdly out of sight just when you think there will be a confrontation. Very movie-able. Netflix? U got this? 3.5⭐️ plus a half star for being F/F and also having a stag. #romantsy #queer

A bunch of my Kobo preorders came in! This was, I think, a Maya Rodale rec on NPR in May? #romantsy #PrideMonth

What the... ? My reaction when I discover these very specific categories. #WTAmazon

dgingo I just looked at this book in B&N today! I was drawn to the cover. And yes about those ridiculously narrow categories—it‘s so they can be “first.” 6mo

I've been on a royal romance kick and loving it! This is the follow-up to the author's Prince Charming (formerly Royals), which I liked. This book, loved! Flora is the wild child rebel princess and in the closet (not by choice). Millie is her American bi roommate who is less than impressed with her royal snobbiness. This was super cute and adorable. There was much more character development than Book 1 and Flora's redemption arc was well done. ⬇️

silentrequiem The only reason I wouldn't give this 5 stars is because the ending was abrupt. Yeah, it was happy, but it didn't feel complete without seeing how Flora's and Millie's families (particularly Flora's) dealt with this. Given the little bit we know about Queen Clara, I really needed to see that. 6mo
silentrequiem While this is a follow-up, it can be read as a standalone. 6mo

My current eArc. I am a fan of Hawkins and liked the first book. And this is set in a Scottish boarding school/castle. So far, so good!
