Princess Ivy has one goal—end the war against the Forces of Darkness.

Ivy’s magic is more powerful than any other Royal’s, but she needs a battle partner who can help her harness it. Prince Zach’s unparalleled skill with a sword should make them an unstoppable pair—if only they could agree on...well, just about anything.

But Ivy’s magic can only fully unlock with Zach’s help, and he’s not exactly cooperating.

Zach believes Ivy’s magic is dangerous. Ivy believes they’ll never win the war without it. Two warriors, one goal, and the fate of their world on the line. But the more they argue, the more they fall for each other. And only one of them can be right…

Woohoo! Chalk up another of my cover obsession books panning out and actually being a creative and fun fantasy tale.

No me esperaba para nada con lo que me he encontrado en este libro. Me ha sorprendido mucho! Para empezar los personajes, maravillosos, y después... tiene cada escena, cada diálogo, que me ha generado vuelcos en el corazón. También hay giros y no para de suceder cosas, por lo que es una t ...more

We are going on a dragon hunt, I wonder if we will catch one!

Evil cures, witches and a beautiful princess. Zach is a prince of myth. He is said to have outstanding swordsman skills, and an undesirable legacy, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

This cover is awesome! The story reads like a fairy tale and if you go into it thinking of it that way you won't be disappointed bc it's cute. The beginning was slow but once that was over I loved the story because there is an evil queen, a princess, magical properties with any kiss and the knight i ...more

Princess Ivy is the purest of Royal blood and the magic in her kisses is very strong. Still, she has now lost her fifth partner due to the Forces of Darkness. Losing a partner is hard enough as it is, but to know that her magic did not work was too much to handle. Ivy did not want to be cast aside a ...more

this review + others can be found over on my blog!
Well, colour me surprised, I didn't expect to enjoy this so much! I found the idea of Kiss very interesting, if a bit odd—the whole Royals having powers because of a kiss is very unique to me. In hindsight, it seems very unfortunate because royals ...more

I want to thank Entangled Teen for sending me this e-copy, this hadn’t influenced my review, nor my rating in any way.

This was the first book I read after coming back from my hiatus and let me tell you what a great choice it was! When I first read the premise, I was a bit skeptical about whether I ...more

By Alaina January 08, 2020

So happy I randomly picked this up one day.

Kiss of the Royal was pretty cute. Not going to lie, it does start off rather slowly (at least for me) but luckily things pick up rather quickly. In it, you will meet Princess Ivy. She has a pretty tough decision - who to kiss. It's kind of like the bachelo ...more

En general me ha encantado, no le encuentro ninguna pega, estoy hasta arriba y apenas puedo leer y cualquier hueco buscaba para poder seguir con la historia.

A short story, if you will. Once upon a time, I grabbed Kiss of the Royal from NetGalley because the description sounded interesting. Then I started reading and I laughed and scoffed. People making out on battlefields in order to be powerful? What dafuq? Confusion settled ...more

-- I received this book through NetGalley against an honest review. --

Imagine a world where the kiss from the Disney's movies, the one that saves the world, wakes the princess or other exists for real and where it is the ultimate weapon against the forces of evil. Well this world is the book, but be ...more

By Mrs. Bookworm July 11, 2018

I'd give this book 10 stars if I could.

I don't know where to begin but this book had me grinning, laughing, swooning, and even crying all at the same time.

If you look from a far the premise of this book seemed silly, childish..innocent even. However, once you get to read this book like really read i ...more

This is a great take on the fairytale genre without being a giant trope. I loved the world building and the relationships (not just the romance) were sweet and realistic. Ivy is one of my favorite heroines to come along in a while. Definitely recommend!

By Fanna December 29, 2018

Kiss of the Royal is a perfectly executed romantic-fantasy that highlights kissing as a romantic gesture by completely bashing it as a romantic gesture for the majority of the book. Yup, that takes talent!

The main idea of the story is this: a girl belongs to the royal family who has to protect her k ...more

About the author

Lindsey Duga

Lindsey Duga developed a deep love for courageous heroes, dastardly villains, and enchanting worlds from the cartoon shows, books, and graphic novels she read as a kid. Drawing inspiration from these fantastical works of fiction, she wrote her first novel in college while she was getting her bachelor’s in Mass Communication from Louisiana State University. By day, Lindsey is an account manager at a digital marketing agency based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. By night, and the wee hours of the morning, she writes both middle grade and young adult. She has a weakness for magic, anything classical, all kinds of mythology, and falls in love with tragic heroes. Other than writing and cuddling with her morkie puppy, Delphi, Lindsey loves catching up on the latest superhero TV show, practicing yoga, and listening (and belting) to her favorite music artists and show tunes. KISS OF THE ROYAL is her YA debut novel.
