*New York Timesbestselling author Emma Chase returns with a sweet and sexy standalone in the Royally Series.* 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. "If you've enjoyed watching The Crown then you are going to go wild for this times about a thousand. All of the mid-twentieth century royal flavoured atmosphere, along with as much sweet and sensuous emotion and drama, you could ask for. The whole series has been nothing short of delightful. And hot. Royally hot." -Kylie Scott, New York Times bestselling author of It Seemed Like A Good Idea at the Time "This was a lovely read. Lenora’s loneliness radiated off the pages. Edward’s arrival saved both Lenora and me. It was a touching, sexy, beautiful romance. I feel fortunate to have read it." –Jen Frederick, New York Times bestselling author of Be Mine "With all the timeless enchantment of a modern fairy tale, Emma Chase weaves a delightfully romantic royal affair that took my breath away. Long Live Queen Lenora!” –Natasha is a Book Junkie blog “Something about Emma Chase’s writing creates a hungry hole inside me and sucks all of me in. Lenny and Edward are two people with extraordinary lives who find the gift of normalcy in the way they are able to love each other, and it's a beautiful thing. I teared up, smiled widely and did not want to return to real life.” –Sonali Dev, author of A Distant Heart

Head of the class... Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out. The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy — he's platinum.

But circumstances — that she'd prefer to never speak of again — have brought her back home, helping out her parents and substitute teaching at her old high school. Now she's facing bickering, raging hormones, constant gossip, awkward weirdness, and drama galore...and that's just the teachers. Just like old times... When Garrett offers to show his former high school sweetheart the secrets of his winning teacher ways, Callie jumps at the chance - and then has to stop herself from jumping him. Good friends are all they can ever be. Or...these teachers just might end up getting schooled — by love.
