Waiting on Wednesday: Romancing the Throne

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Romancing the Throne by Nadine Jolie Courtney
Pub. Date: May 17, 2017



Goodreads says, "For the first time ever, the Weston sisters are at the same boarding school. After an administration scandal at Libby’s all-girls school threatens her chances at a top university, she decides to join Charlotte at posh and picturesque Sussex Park. Social-climbing Charlotte considers it her sisterly duty to bring Libby into her circle: Britain’s young elites, glamorous teens who vacation in Hong Kong and the South of France and are just as comfortable at a polo match as they are at a party.  It’s a social circle that just so happens to include handsome 17-year-old Prince Edward, heir to Britain’s throne.  Charlotte’s had her eye on Edward, and soon they’re snogging all over the campus lawn and common rooms—while Libby busies herself with settling into her studies and navigating the complicated social code of Sussex Park. Eager to put her sister at ease, Charlotte encourages Libby to hang out with her new boyfriend. And much to everyone’s surprise, Libby and Edward hit it off.  Actually, they really hit it off.  In this juicy, contemporary girl-meets-prince story, two sisters find themselves at odds over the same boy amid high-society expectations and paparazzi scandals. In the end, there may be a price to pay for romancing the throne . . . and more than one path to happily ever after."

Ever since I read The Royal We (which I adored by the way!), I am all about these types of stories; although, I am not so sure about two sisters competing....seems very Boleyn like. Nonetheless, I think this one would look great in my beach bag. What do you guys think?

  1. I kind of wish it was two best friends competing for the same guy instead of two sisters but I think this could be a fun beach read. I have a feeling that nothing is going to live up to The Royal We though :) Good pick!

  4. I feel like this is one that I'm going to need to wait until you've read it first before I make any kind of decision. I'm going to need you to tell me how everything ends ;-) Sisters competing is going to cause me stress, but if I know how it works out beforehand, I'll be good to go!

    1. Haha. I know! I am not a big fan of that part of the synopsis, but I still have high hopes. Thanks for visiting, Jenny!

  5. This looks super cute, and reminds me a lot of The Heir and The Spare, minus the sister aspect. But speaking of that--that would definitely be the one thing that keeps me from loving this. The only type of love triangle that really bothers me is if it involves siblings (or best friends that are as close as siblings). But I do love a little royal romance! :D
