Yes, Your Highness: Royally Roma by Teri Wilson

Hi guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're diving between the epages of a newish release via Pocket Star eBooks.  It stars the first title in a new Contemporary Romance series that is sure to capture hearts and light more than a few fires (*wink wink*).  I'll say it first so it comes as no surprise later on, this is for ADULT READERS only.  It doesn't fall into the erotic category, but it's definitely more New Adult, which means more than a bit of steam.  Now, let's get to the good stuff.  ^-^  Today's ebook of choice is...

Royally Roma (The Royals, #1)

The Royals, Book 1

About the book...
In this enchanting retelling of the classic Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday, a royal prince tries to escape his hectic and rigid life and ends up leading a young graduate student on a chase through the Eternal City.

Julia Costa is too busy trying to complete her PhD while also holding down a full-time job as a private tour guide in Rome to keep up with celebrity gossip. So when she crosses paths with a real, actual prince, she mistakes him for a client and takes him on a daylong tour of the city.

Intrigued by the idea of spending time with someone who obviously has no idea who he is, and delighted at the prospect of a day free of royal obligations, Niccolo La Torre, Crown Prince of Lazaretto, acts on impulse and assumes the role of Julia’s client. He swears to himself that he’ll return to his royal duties after only half a day…but he’s having the time of his life.

Until Julia presents him with the bill. Since he snuck out of the hotel without so much as a dime, he tries to escape, only to discover that she won’t let him out of her sight until he can pay her back. She’s determined to get her money…and perhaps more from the handsome stranger she’s fallen for.

I left a Greek Adonis (last book...Wooing the Wedding Planner, you should look it up!) and swapped him for an English Prince.  Why I do believe I'm in good hands either way though... *giggle*

Ever come off of reading a new book and just sum the moment up and the sentiments just stick?  Yeah, that was me with this book.  Seriously!  My immediate thoughts after turning the final page couldn't do it any more justice than if I started from scratch, so here are those "immortal" words, and then I'll embellish a little more for you...

"...My tour de Italy is over and my oh my what a ride! Nico and Julia are quite the pair, and more alike than they even realize. Behind the crown, behind the impish bravado, beat the hearts of two people, falling very hard and very fast. Their eventual coming together was explosive, as was the immediate fallout, but people can sometimes surprise you, especially those that have captured your heart..."

It really was an AWESOME read with all the feels, innuendos, sarcasm, and snark that make it fun, but also the touch of REAL, what's behind the mask of carefully crafted balance each character wears.  Julia may be from humbler means, but she's experienced A LOT of equally bombastic scandal, none of which were at her own hand.  Nico may have impeccable breeding, manners to die for, and a killer smile, but being the faceplate of a monarchy...isn't always what it's cracked up to be.  When these two found each other, it seemed like oil and water...or rather when water is added to burning hot oil and the volcanic like reaction it creates.  Once the layers come off, and their truths are laid bare, you get to see...well, when you read it, you'll see.  (What?  I can't spoil it for you!)

Recommended for adult readers for the high sparkage within the pages...but I'll tell you now, the next two installments are on MY wish list.
