It's not easy being royal. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline wears her crown proudly, but between her duties and her overprotective big brother, the idea of romance is just a dream. But a chance encounter in Chicago changes all that….
Sure, seventeen-year-old Tyler Evans loves playing hockey, but he's more concerned about providing for his dad and little sister. Then he meets Eva--and falls head-over-heels in love—and he has two more problems. One, she's his best friend's little sister. Two, she wears a crown.
But then Eva accidentally mistakes Tyler for a visiting prince, and for the first time, Tyler doesn't feel like a nobody. He knows he has to tell her the truth…but not yet.
His plan? To keep up the royal charade as long as it takes to convince Eva he’s the guy for her. Even if he’s lying to everyone…including himself.
Disclaimer: May cause disillusionment. Those girls looking to find their Prince Charming might consider scouting out hockey rinks.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
We hope readers feel inspired by Tyler and Eva’s story; all the books in the Chicago Falcons series are about being true to yourself and learning from your mistakes. Tyler and Eva both struggle to believe in themselves and both don’t like accepting help. We hope that by the end of the book, the reader will see the importance of finding your inner confidence and trusting your friends and family!
What books have most influenced your life most?
We grew up on The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. We learned to love fantasy early on, and still love a grand adventure tale!
What book are you reading now?
Leah just finished The Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller and loved it!
Kate is reading The Hating Game, a romantic comedy by Sally Thorne, and doesn’t remember the last time she laughed so hard!
What are your current projects?
We are currently working on a young adult adventure novel about two sisters who must travel back in time to the prehistoric world of the dinosaurs in order to save their father.
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Our favourite author is Leigh Bardugo. We love how she can write multiple point-of-views that all sound so distinct and unique from one another. We also really admire how she can create such a sympathetic anti-hero, like Kaz Brekker.
While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?
When we write, we really try to get into character and feel the emotions as naturally as possible. We picture what it would be like to wake up as that character, to go through their average day, and how they react to different scenarios. While writing, we always have to try to type through the character’s eyes in order to produce the most authentic words!
