    New York Times Best Seller

    What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. Crazy Rich Asians meets The Crown. 

    Perfect for fans of Red, White, and Royal Blue and The Royal We!

    Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown. Two girls vying for the prince's heart. This is the story of the American royals.

    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. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American.

    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 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.

    The duty. The intrigue. The Crown. 

    New York Times best-selling author Katharine McGee imagines an alternate version of the modern world, one where the glittering age of monarchies has not yet faded - and where love is still powerful enough to change the course of history.

    "The lives of the American royal family will hook you in the very first pages and never let go. Relatable, believable, fantastical, aspirational, and completely addictive." (Sara Shepard, number one New York Times best-selling author of the Pretty Little Liars and Perfectionists series)

    Kritikerstimmen

    "For all the glamour and intrigue, there's also a reality check. All four central characters struggle to reconcile the expectations the world imposes on them with the internal selves they discover through heartbreak and struggle." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "Critical questions tantalize readers through the foibles and flaws of characters who are frustratingly human…readers will eagerly await the next installment to find out whether true love will win or stodgy tradition will triumph.” (Kirkus Reviews)

    “A deliciously soapy American royal family...McGee’s characters are well-crafted and flawed, giving the narrative emotional texture that elevates it above the dramatic formula.” (Publishers Weekly)

    Well.

    I didn’t like Daphne at all, she is petty and bitchy for no other reason than she wants the prince she can’t have him so she does everything to get him. So why is no one telling her that she’s a bitch? Because if she had at least a believable vendetta against someone or some other reason to be a little sympathetic to her but she is simply to shallow, for me to find anything in her favor.
    And the problems from all the others aren’t written any better, feels forced like complications just for complications sake. Maybe the author couldn’t think of anything better to make the reasons solid for her characters.
    Particularly the Relationships of Beatrice, why can’t she marry a commoner? She is the first woman on that fictional throne so why cant she be the first Queen to also marry a commoner.

    Although I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped I will listen to the second book, to see if it gets better.
