We chose this book as our own modern tribute to Downton Abbey and a shout out to Kate and Prince William. An American gal falls in love with a British man. She is surprised to find out that he is a Duke. They meet in a bookstore - what a way to meet a guy!
A Royal Pain is a snarky, cheeky, chick lit/ romance that is highly entertaining!
Bronte Talbott has just gotten out of a bad relationship when she meets Max Heyworth. She is definitely not in the market for a boyfriend and she thinks of Max as her transition man. Max on the other hand wants more than a fling with Bronte. Bronte has always been fascinated by British royalty, and unbeknownst to her Max is hiding the fact that
he is the 19th Duke of Northrop.
Max would like to make Bronte his duchess but he fears what her reaction will be when she finds out that he is a duke. He doesn't know if Bronte will be able to handle his families disapproval , and all that comes with being a royal duchess. If Max is to stand a chance with Bronte he must convince her that love can conquer all, including a meddling mother in law, the paparazzi, and the notoriety that comes with being a member of the royal family.
