She’s a survivor. He has a royal secret. Will the truth help them find their fairy tale?
When art history student Clementine receives a social media message complimenting her latest project, her response leads to the mysterious CP Chadwick, a British man studying history at Cambridge. An online friendship quickly blooms.
When she confides her medical past to CP, he doesn’t treat her as fragile like her parents do, and their friendship turns to something more in Clementine’s heart.
Clementine has no idea that CP is actually Prince Christian of Wales, who has never had a “normal” life. Christian is at a crossroad. His destiny is to be a working royal, but he is desperate to fill that role in his own way. Wary of others, he’s kept himself closed off from the world—until he lets Clementine in.
A royal romance is never a fairy tale, but Clementine and Christian are determined to write their own version. Can they overcome their own fears—as well as the constraints of a royal life—to reach their own happily ever after?
It’s very rare to read a story about a cancer survivor. Or maybe that’s just me? Anyway, Clementine went through hell when she was younger, so as a college student, she wants to enjoy her life post-cancer. Without the judgments that come with it. She keeps her medical history a secret and tries to be normal. It’s very refreshing to see the life-after such an illness. Normally, we don’t get to see the protagonists life after she is cured. Therefore, I salute Aven, she chose a very good time in Clementine’s life to start from.
The romance between CP aka Prince Christian and Clementine is modern and unique. They met through instagram and clicked right away. They declared their love a little too soon for my taste, but I understand that the author wanted to showcase their struggle to maintain a relationship under the public eye, and the Queen. Who, by the by, disapproved of this non-royal American girl.
| Royal Review |
Anyway, A Royal Shade of Blue is a fast paced novel about romance between a prince and a commoner. Perfect for people interested in that trope. It’s filled with heartfelt moments, humor, modern elements and a few saucy scenes that are worth the read or in my case, listen.
