Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed. Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news. While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

The moment I saw this book, I took it as a challenge. Why? It' like this, "Royals? i think I've never read any royal-romance book..... Well, why not?" So here I am. Reading this, without reading the summary. 

Our heroine, Samantha wasn't exactly a royal at the first few chapters, and I had prepared my major eye roll if it turns out that Suddenly Royal meant royalty that is earned because the prince, Alex, fell insta-love to Samantha (I didn't read the summary, remember?) and I am glad I was wrong. Sam's ancestor was actually a royal! And the Queen of Lilaria wanted Sam to reinstate her tittle and lands as the heir of Rousseau (her family), so yeah, instead of being slammed with an eye-roll-worth-insta-love Sam was enjoying her insta-wealth.

 It was fun reading this book, but somehow I felt that the conflict.... Were not that important..... Not exactly unimportant but some of them are just not nescessary. There are conflicts, but I didn't see (or feel) any main conflict in this book. But I don't know, maybe it's just me... But it was fun though. I like the style of writing and of course, Alex. He's a prince for God's sake!

 Despite those irritating minor conflicts, Suddenly Royal was a pleasure to read.
