How much would you give up for true love?
Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister is the romantic who fantasizes about glamour, fame and fortune – Bex has always been a tomboy. So when she spends a year at Oxford, and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, she is the only girl not interested in dating the future king.
But eventually Bex can't resist falling for Nick, and as their friendship turns to romance, Bex becomes immersed in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace – a world away from her humble upbringing.
The relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick's sparkling ex-girlfriends, and a family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he's fated to become.
A hilarious romantic comedy from the authors of gofugyourself.com.
'In the grand tradition of Curtis Sittenfeld's American Wife.... A breezy, juicy novel that's like The Princess Diaries with fewer made-up countries and more sex-the kind of book you can imagine Pippa sneaking into Kensington Palace' Entertainment Weekly.
'Every bit as engrossing as the real Kate and Will... The pages turn as easily as a tabloid feature on the royal couple – and you'll end up just as obsessed with Bex and Nick as you already are with Wills and Kate' Glamour.
'Royal watchers and chick-lit fans alike will delight in this sparkling tale. Pure fun' Publishers Weekly.
'A joy from start to finish. THE ROYAL WE is that rare novel that makes you think, makes you cry, and is such fun to read that you'll want to clear your schedule until you've turned the final page. But be warned – Cocks and Morgan have created a world so rich, a romance so compelling, and characters so funny and alive, that you'll be terribly sad to see them go' J. COURTNEY SULLIVAN, New York Times-bestselling author of The Engagements and Maine.
'Pages of biting humor and breathtaking glamour rewrite a fairy tale into something more satisfying than a stack of tabloids' Kirkus.
'Nick and Bex's story is engaging and heartwarming and sometimes gasp-out-loud juicy, but... underneath the frothy exterior is sharp look at the clash between modern women and the ways they are portrayed' The Millions.
