When Princess Caroline of Drieden of the Royal House Laurent eloped with a race car driver, she forfeited her royal title and her family.

Now a widow and exiled from Drieden, Caroline is working as a journalist, writing exposes under a pen name. When, one day, she catches sight of her sister Thea's ex-fiancé, she's stunned - Christian is supposed to be dead. Here could be the scoop of the century.

But Caroline's plans to uncover Christian's deception are foiled by the arrival of Hugh Konnor - her former bodyguard and Caroline's first - unrequited - love. When Hugh stubbornly refuses to leave her side, Caroline can't deny they make a good team.

As they unravel a web of deception that could bring down the House of Laurent, Caroline must decide how far she's willing to go to protect a family she feels deserted her - and whether the man who swore to guard her body can safely hold her heart.

I absolutely loved The Royal Runaway so I was thrilled to receive this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This book was told from Caroline's (the disowned princess's) point of view. I immediately loved Caroline and was drawn into the story. Stavros, the race car driver Caroline ran off, with was ...more

As a massive fan of The Royal Runaway, I was incredibly excited to read this new Royal book, and it did not disappoint one bit.

I just wish I'd read them closer together as some of it may have been easier to catch up with, but other than that this could easily be read as a standalone.

This time its C ...more

I just love Lindsay Emory's voice and that bit of action-adventure that you get in her royal books! Caroline's story really worked for me, with twists and turns and a grumpy/dreamy bodyguard to boot. Loved this one! ...more

By Trishia April 26, 2020

First, I did not expect it to be a Book 2 of Royal Runaway.
I love how different the story continues just because it has its own vibe...The adventure.continued on a pov of Caroline, different princess, different attitude.

The author manages to make the other Laurent shown to us.....

I was hoping to s ...more

By Jessica April 03, 2020

Not what I expected- in a good way! Caroline is smart, independent, fierce, and loves her family despite her circumstances. She teams up, often reluctantly, with Hugh who she knew from years past. Between them there is a great spark, but the story isn’t solely focused on that. There is plenty of mys ...more

This book is part of a series, which isn't indicated on Goodreads or on the information listed on NetGalley, this isn't an issue when reading the book, but it would be information I would like to see listed so I can find related books. 

There are substantial similarities to the British Royal Family ( ...more

Loving the mix of suspense and romance!

But when her sister’s fiancé, who was presumed dead, shows up asking for her help ...more

A (former) princess trying to escape the public eye. Her (former) bodyguard still devoted to keeping her safe. And the outside forces manipulating them both as well as the royal family. The Royal Bodyguard is a wonderful follow up to the Royal Runaway. Princess Caroline has been separated from her f ...more

By Jennifer November 13, 2019

Caroline was a disgraced Princess, who was basically exiled from her family and/or country when she married someone that her family didn't approve of. She's not one who break the rules all the time, as she tried to follow the rules set before her, but she finally got very tired of it, and from then ...more

By Sarah November 01, 2019

The Royal Bodyguard is a mystery/romance follow up to The Royal Runaway. This continues the story of the royal family of Dreiden. While the first book focused on Princess Thea, The Royal Bodyguard follows the recently widowed (and disowned) Princess Caroline. Caroline has gone into hiding, but soon ...more

By Melena November 17, 2019

It took me a little bit to get into this story and like Caroline, but once I did it felt like watching a spy movie. I have not read the first book about Thea, but I did not feel like I was missing any important information.

The action moves between many different locations around Europe and I was int ...more

By Allison November 19, 2019

This book was really not what I was expected, I didn't know that this was a second book in the series and I didn't find that it really took away from the story though more background would have been nice. Although now I'd like to read Thea's story. This story is told from the perspective of the exil ...more

By Kristie December 10, 2019

I received an ARC in return for an honest review.

I was delighted to get a copy of this novel. I loved this story. Caroline was immediately a likable character that you wanted to know the tale of; a disowned princess. Early on in the novel, she is faced with a tragic loss of Stavros, the race car dr ...more

By Denise February 29, 2020

Heads up - this story will sound familiar in the beginning and it took me way too long to realize that this was the same story as The Royal Runaway just told from a different perspective. Instead of being from Thea's point of view, it was from Caroline. I really liked Caroline and Hugh a lot and was ...more

By Kerry December 22, 2019

I am a sucker for a good bodyguard romance, and this one had all of the elements I like. There was lots of intrigue and action to keep things interesting, and the story moved quickly. I liked the romance between Caroline and Hugh, and there was a good amount of tension. Hugh is sort of the strong si ...more

By Jennifer February 06, 2020

Loved Royal Runaway as much as The Royal Runaway!

The push and pull of life, love, abandonment, fear and of course royal obligation takes charge the moment you read the first page.

Emory opened another door to the Driedish Royal Family and I enjoyed every moment of Caroline's journey. Her chemistry ...more

By Suzette November 11, 2019

A sweet fairytale story. Caroline is the black sheep of the royal family and is recovering from the death of her family. Hugh is the man who had broken her heart and is once again her bodyguard. The story is filled with multiple layers of intrigue between the different characters. The plot is filled ...more

By Fizza November 13, 2019

I absolutely loved this book. It's the kind of story that draws you in right from the start until the end. Caroline and Hugh are both amazing characters and their story is quite intriguing. They both have the same goal of finding answers regarding the ex of Caroline's sister. This book has mystery a ...more

By Susan October 26, 2019

A big thank you to NetGalley and Entangled/Amara Publishing for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Is this part of a series? I sort of felt like I was missing information. I loved Caroline, her spunk. Didn't really understand the whole thing with Christian?? The grandmother's were hilari ...more

By Book November 08, 2019

Okay so it was a bit slow to start like it took me a few chapters to get into the story enough that I cared to read more. However the middle and end of the book are amazing! The story really picks up and gets going. You start getting anxious to find out what is next. ...more
