Catherine has spent her life being the perfect princess. She’s kept her hands clean, her head down, and most importantly—men at arm’s length. After all, most men are after only one thing, and for Cathy there’s a lot more at stake than her bed; she has to worry about the fate of an entire nation. But at the rate she’s going, Cathy is afraid she’ll give the Virgin Queen a run for her money. She is tired of waiting for someone good enough to come along. She has a plan, and it all hinges on seducing the one man who seems utterly unimpressed by all things royal. The one man she is tempted by more than any other . . .

When David arrives at the royal wedding of his friend, the newly ordained Duchess Samantha Rousseau, he expected to feel uncomfortable and out of his element, but he wasn’t prepared to be targeted by Prince Alex’s gorgeous younger sister. With Cathy’s giant blue eyes, killer figure, and sense of humor, it won’t take long before he gives in. But when he finds out just how innocent the crown princess really is, will he play the part of knight in shining armor or the dashing rogue?

Recklessly Royal is a sequel to Suddenly Royal and I highly recommend reading the first installment before reading the second one.

Cathy wants to be loved because she is a woman, but that is not easy when this woman comes with a title: Princess.

Princess Catharine was born as a princess and her whole life she dated men who either wanted to marry her to become closer to the throne or to sleep with her in order to brag with that fact, until David. David is an American who does not care about titles and royalties, but cares deeply about Catharine.

The attraction between Cathy and David is instant and it starts on the first few pages of the story, only to be pushed back a little in order to focus more on the life of Cathy as a princess and than just to get back in a full swing in the last third of the story. I really like the way the author develops the plot line, not just focusing on the romance of Cathy and David, but also giving me an insight into a life of princess. I found the author’s description very genuine, and I think that she did a marvelous job with Cathy’s character. Cathy is a great princess; she is not spoiled or vain. On the contrary, she is compassionate, with a big heart and she is well aware of all the things that her title is carries with it. She is very mature for her age. But because of all that she is having a hard time relaxing and being herself, fortunately, in the end, with the help of David she manages to experience some other things beside royal duties.

I enjoyed this story tremendously, it is funny, the romance does not have any up and downs (but the plot has an interesting one), and it has few hot sex scenes. As a fan of Suddenly Royal I was very happy to see some of the secondary characters back in this story. All in all, a great read and wonderful sequel. I am eagerly waiting for the next installment in the series.
