Named one of Amazon's Best Romances of May!

The Reluctant Royals series returns with a good girl searching for the life that's not too big, and not too small, and the bad boy prince who might be just right for her...

Nya Jerami fled Thesolo for the glitz and glamour of NYC but discovered that her Prince Charming only exists in her virtual dating games. When Nya returns home for a royal wedding, she accidentally finds herself up close and personal--in bed--with the real-life celebrity prince who she loves to hate.

For Johan von Braustein, the red-headed step-prince of Liechtienbourg, acting as paparazzi bait is a ruse that protects his brother--the heir to the throne--and his own heart. When a royal referendum threatens his brother's future, a fake engagement is the perfect way to keep the cameras on him.

Nya and Johan both have good reasons to avoid love, but as desires are laid bare behind palace doors, they must decide if their fake romance will lead to a happily-ever-after.

Booklist Review: "In this final installment in Cole's brilliant Reluctant Royals series, we meet Prince Johan Maximillian von Braustein, who acts like a playboy to keep the paparazzi's attention on himself and away from his stepbrother, the heir to the kingdom of Liechtienbourg. That is, if the upcoming referendum to abolish the monarchy does not pass. For now, Jo-jo needs to distract the media, and what better way than with a fake engagement? Always a good girl, Nya Jerami did whatever her father told her to do, until it was discovered (in A Princess in Theory, 2018) that her father was a traitor to his nation. When Nya signals that she's looking for an escape from her sheltered life in Thesolo, Johan eagerly sweeps the shy beauty away and lets the press, and their families, believe that the engagement is real. With zero experience in relationships, Nya leans heavily on a dating-simulation game, but the more time she spends with Johan in real life, the more she discovers her own voice and style. Meanwhile, Johan must let the party-god persona go if he's ever going to win Nya's heart for himself. An impressive ending to a series featuring an international cast of complex, multicultural characters balancing their royal responsibilities with their modern lives and loves.--Kristina Giovanni Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Fan favorite Prince Johan von Braustein takes center stage in Cole's delicious third and final Reluctant Royals contemporary. A vote that could end the Liechtienbourg monarchy is looming, but Johan escapes the political pressure and travels to Thesolo for a royal wedding. Nya Jerami has retreated into virtual dating games after bad romantic experiences deepened her insecurities and feelings of worthlessness. When wedding activities keep putting Nya and Johan together, people-including Nya's grandparents-take note. To protect Nya's reputation and avoid negative press, Johan proposes. The fake engagement swiftly becomes intensely real as Johan and Nya share their secrets and lives. But Johan's overprotective tendencies destroy his relationship with his younger brother, Lukas, and his abandonment issues may drive Nya away for good. Cole explores sexual and gender identities, grief, self-respect, acceptance, and love in this faultless romance. She weaves family drama and emotional growth into a passion-filled story worthy of its irresistibly complicated (and diverse) characters. This affair of the heart is deeply satisfying.
