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
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.

disillusionment. Those girls looking to find their Prince Charming
might consider scouting out hockey rinks.
Leah and Kate Rooper are sisters from
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Growing up beside the Pacific
Ocean and inside a temperate rainforest fed their sense of adventure
as children, and nourished a curiosity for strange and distant lands.
They fed this curiosity with books - lots and lots of books. After
experiencing the magic of Middle-earth, they began creating their own
worlds. When they're not writing, Leah and Kate spend their time
blogging and vlogging about their travel adventures and their writing

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.
