My Review: This was an adorable story. Falling in love with royalty has started to come back around, and I am all for that - it's also on the top of my list of favorite romance tropes. I blame it on my teenaged love of The Princess Diaries, which I'll admit to never having got over... But enough about that, back to this book! Sage and Everly are just so sweet together. 

Author Lauren Runow definitely has a good writing style. This is the first I've heard of this author, but I would for sure check out more. There were quite a few cliches in this book, which made it a little predictable at first. But by the end, it took on a unique, original tone, and I was really getting into it. If you want a classic contemporary romance, this would be a great choice.

Cover Lovin': Two thumbs up.

Recommendation: Stand-alone, no prior knowledge necessary.

Final Rating:  THREE out of FIVE stars (3/5)! A little cliched, but definitely fun.

Happy Reading!

Everly wasn’t excited over her impending meeting with the enigmatic Prince Sage. Being one of only four women from whom the Prince gets to choose in marriage was never something she valued. Her goal was to politely and elegantly remove herself from a forced wedding due to long standing traditions. Handsome Prince or not, she won’t marry for anything but love. 

Once Sage proceeds to the next candidate, Everly finally feels she can move forward with her life. On her own terms. That is, until she receives a mysterious request, asking her to solve a riddle, taking her on a night she’ll never forget.

A fervent adventure ensues, and attraction builds as the excitement of the night unfolds. Sparks fly in more ways than one just as she finds out who’s stealing her heart.


Lauren Runow is the author of multiple Adult Contemporary Romance novels, some more dirty than others. When Lauren isn't writing, you'll find her listening to music, at her local CrossFit, reading, or at the baseball field with her boys. Her only vice is coffee, and she swears it makes her a better mom!

Lauren is a graduate from the Academy of Art in San Francisco and is the founder and co-owner of the community magazine she and her husband publish. She lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons.
