    [Rezi] Katharine McGee – Majesty [American Royals]

    Klappentext Power is intoxicating. Like first love, it can leave you breathless. Princess Beatrice was born with it. Princess Samantha was born with less.

    [Rezi] Katharine McGee – American Royals [American Royals]

    Klappentext Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown. Two girls vying for the prince’s heart. This is the story of the American royals. When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren’t just any royals. They’re American. As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling.…

    [Rezi] Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan – The Heir Affair [The Royal We]

    Klappentext After a scandalous secret turns their fairy-tale wedding into a nightmare, Rebecca „Bex“ Porter and her husband Prince Nicholas are in self-imposed exile. The public is angry. The Queen is even angrier. And the press is salivating.

But when a crisis forces the new Duke and Duchess back to London, the Band-Aid they’d placed over their problems starts to peel at the edges. Now, as old family secrets and new ones threaten to derail her new royal life, Bex has to face the emotional wreckage…

    [Rezi] Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan – The Royal We [The Royal We]

    Klappentext American Bex Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess. But it’s adventure-seeking Bex who goes to Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall – and Bex who finds herself accidentally in love with the heir to the British throne. Nick is wonderful, but he comes with unimaginable baggage: a complicated family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a Brit. On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex looks back on how much she’s had to give up for…

Was ist passiert? Du hast vermutlich zu einer Wiederveröffentlichung im neuen Design gegriffen. Heute möchte ich euch ein paar Bücher vorstellen, die ein neues Cover und einen neuen Titel bekommen haben, aber schon einmal veröffentlicht wurden.

    [Rezi] Casey McQuiston – Red, White & Royal Blue

    Klappentext When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse. Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined.…

    Klappentext Wenn sie es will, bleibt der Telepathin Shay kein einziger Gedanke ihrer Mitmenschen verborgen. Doch in ihrem eigenen Kopf gibt es einen dunklen Bereich, den sie einfach nicht ergründen kann. Fast so, als hätte jemand ihr Gedächtnis gelöscht, aber eine geheimnisvolle Sehnsucht dagelassen.
