Release Blitz: Royally Yours by Emma Chae

Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.

It’s a big deal.

When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.

What she isn’t…is married.

It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.

Even Queens. Especially them.


Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there.

To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.


Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever.

Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.

This is theirs.

Review by Lisa Kane

"You don't wear the crown to do what you want-you wear it to do what must be done. Because you are the only one who can."

What a throughly engaging story!

Lenora has been raised to be the Queen of Wessco. No softness in her childhood. Nothing but royal duties and expectations. When she finally comes to power, it is demanded that she marry. It is expected. Who better to marry than her best friend Thomas, Duke of Anthorp? No matter that he has a special friend, Michael. They are all aware of their duty to country and heritage.

But Thomas is sick, very sick and his rogue brother, Edward has been summoned. He once was expected to bear the title for the family, but he left years ago for his own reasons.

I stayed away because I wanted more out of life than a title and vaults full of money I didn't earn. I wanted a purpose. A reason for being. I was searching for it.
I still am. 

Lenora and Edward meet in a most unconventional way. Neither is aware who the other is-both have their guard down. But when they find out the other's identity -well sparks fly.

"The Queen does not tell people she's the Queen."
"Why not?"
"Because they're just supposed to know."

Neither wants to believe the truth about Thomas and his illness. But both will promise him anything if it will bring him peace.

"I think you should marry Edward."
"Your brother? How biblical."
Her grey eyes slice my way. 
"You've agreed to this?"
"He's my brother. He asked, I won't deny him, not now."

And so it begins....

Royally Yours has so much humor and protocol and steam. Lenora, Lenny to Edward, has been brought up to believe her life is about service. Edward has great fun teaching her that their life together is going to be more than duty. There will be sex, lots of sex.

Edward is not making quite the sacrifice it would seem he is-he is utterly fascinated by Lenny. Captivated by her innocence, she soothes his jaundiced soul. She appears to be ice cold as a royal, but behind their closed doors she is anything but. She cares deeply about her people and never forgets it is her duty to protect and serve.

"This life Edward-it's so easy to be broken by it."

Edward will do all he can to protect her, no matter what it takes.

"You will never have her. She belongs to me-she is mine. When I am dead and buried she will still be fucking mine."

From an arranged marriage comes a gorgeous love story full of heartbreak and joy and contentment!

"For the good and glory of Wessco."
