Momma Says: 4 out of 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
Royal Dick is written in first person, dual POV with chapters alternating between our two main characters, Rikard and Jane. (There are also a couple of chapters from one other POV later in the book, but to give details on that would be spoilers.) The book fits well into the Romance category, but also could easily fall into the Action/Adventure genre as well. It is Melinda Minx, so there is certainly plenty of steamy goodness, making this an adult audience recommendation. Now, check out that cover. I kept thinking the hottie on the front reminded me of someone and it finally clicked! Doesn't he make you think of Ryan Reynolds? Yay or Nay, there's no denying his hotness!😜
I’m prince Rikard Nordgaard, but you can call me Dick.
No one can know that I’m the Nordian prince, at least not until I’m married.
Good thing I just found my bride...she’s an American tourist named Jane.
My father’s on his deathbed, and my country’s at war.
So if plain Jane wants this Royal Dick, she better say “I do,” and fast.
I just wanted to tour the castle, but as soon as I cross the drawbridge, I’m taken hostage.
Just when it looks like I’m as good as dead, prince Rikard Nordgaard himself sneaks in and comes to my rescue. He takes out the terrorists, and then he takes me out—to dinner.
He’s tall, dark, and a freaking prince. His smile melts my insides, and even when he’s being a total dick, his charm and wit is razor sharp.
Every little girl knows growing up that the Nordian princes must marry commoners, but I’d thrown those dreams out with my Barbie dolls. And now the prince himself is asking me to marry him—to make me his princess.
All I have to do is say ‘yes,’ and my life will change forever. The terrorists are starting a civil war, and the king is dying, so it won’t exactly be all sunshine and roses. But how can I say no to a prince? Even if he is a royal dick.
