Even though I’ve never fantasized marrying a prince, I couldn’t help but get caught into the Royal Wedding frenzy. The fascinators, the dresses, and best of all, the moment Prince Harry saw Meghan Markle in her wedding dress. I’m not crying. You’re crying.
My life is finally back to normal a few weeks later, but I can’t stop thinking about the royal couple’s love story. It resembles a plot from a larger than life romance novel: a reformed playboy prince falls in love with a divorced feminist actress. Can you imagine the sexual chemistry between those two? I would read the heck out of that book!
There may not be a royal wedding anytime in the near future, but you can feed your fairytale fantasies with a romance novel. Not just any romances. The make-your-panties melt type of romances. We’re adults now. Time to turn our G-rated princess stories into the R-rated ones.
Get ready to bask in your own royal afterglow with these steamy royal retellings.
If your favorite fairy involves shedding your rags to dance with Prince Charming a la Cinderella:
Like most dukes in historical novels, Griffin does not want to get married. His determined mother drags him to Spindle Cove — dubbed “Spinster Cove” — and forces him to choose a bride. To spite his mother, he chooses a Pauline, a serving girl. The sexy duke offers her a job she cannot resist: subject herself to his mother’s duchess in training lessons.
During the course of these hilarious lessons, the two can’t keep their hands off each other. While the two may be compatible in the bedroom, will the uppercrust be able to accept her into their circles?
If you prefer warming the cold heart of a wounded beast, like Belle in Beauty and the Beast:
Meet beautiful Erin, who cleans the home of reclusive ex-soldier Blake. She’s secretly in love with him, but Blake knows his emotional scars will scare her away. Until she walks in on him moaning her name as he pleasures himself. What would you do if you were in Erin’s shoes?
When Blake accepts an associate professor position at Erin’s school, their relationship becomes even more complicated. Will Erin be able to warm more than his manhood?
If you wished to be part of a different world, like Ariel in The Little Mermaid:
Fisherman’s daughter Laire is swept up into a whirlwind romance with Erick, the governor’s son. Laire has wanted more than her small fishing village has to offer and dives into Erick’s wealthy, glamorous life. They spend the summer falling into bed and in love.
Like any fairy tale, a villain rips them apart. When the two meet again years later, their chemistry is undeniable. Can they overcome the secrets and lies that broke them apart and find true love once again?
