Royle Sisters Trilogy

I found Kathryn Caskie through the Romance Novel TV forum and when I went to her website I read about her Royle Sisters Trilogy. I instantly knew that I had to find those books and read them. Well I went to the Barnes & Noble website and found that the first book in the series was not in the bookstore close to me but the second and third were. So I decided to buy them online instead so I would get them all together. I’m glad that I bought them because they are great books that I enjoyed reading. I like reading historical romances especially when they involve a big mystery having to do with historical figures but twisted around to make it believable even though its not. This series is about triplet sisters who maybe the actual “secret” daughters of the prince regent of England and there is also so much scandal and mystery intangled with this story that the sisters feel that they have to find out. Mary Royle is the oldest of the triplets and fell in love and in the end married the Rogan the Duke of Blackthrone in the first book of the series, How to Seduce a Duke. Then Anne Royle who is the middle triplet sister and the most shy of them to got her love story told in the second book of the series, How to Engage an Earl. Now it’s the youngest of the triplet sisters to get her love story told in Kathryn Caskie’s Royle Sisters Trilogy.
When Elizabeth, youngest of the notorious Royle sisters, comes face-to-face with her future husband, a man she’s seen only in her dreams, she nearly swoons—especially when she discovers he is a prince. We have only read about Elizabeth in the previous novels as the youngest and the one with the dreams of what the future may hold but now she’s dreaming about her future since her two other sisters already found their true loves. But her ecstasy of finding her prince charming is short-lived as she quickly learns that the man she longs for is betrothed to someone—a princess no less. Not everything is as it seems though most women would give up, but Elizabeth is a Royle, after all. Refusing to surrender her dreams of a royal wedding, Elizabeth takes the position of lady-in-waiting to the fiancée, determined to get close to her perfect match. But the lover she desires is not who he seems…and only once she discovers the true man behind the crown will she find the perfect love she’s been longing for all her life.
After enjoying the first two books in this series I was so excited to finally get to find out if the Royle sisters are really the royal daughters of the Prince Regent. I also wanted to find out who Elizabeth would end up falling in love with and marrying because her sisters both found love in such wonderful men who gave them a higher station in life then what they expected. It was such fun reading about how Elizabeth tries to land her dream prince charming even though there are issues that may very well keep them apart if they don’t figure out a way to be together. Now the supposed prince that Elizabeth falls for is Prince Leopold of Sax-Coburg-Saalfield but when she first meets him at a jewlery shop he introduces himself as Sumner Lansdowne, Marquess of Whitevale. There is a lot of intrigue and mayham going on in this novel that I was flipping the pages so fast I almost got a paper-cut. It was such a relief to finally get to find out the secret to the entire series because it really had me anxious to finally get the answer. I also liked the ending because it really left me feeling that if Kathye Caskie really wanted to she could really pick up from there and write more books into this series. I give this book 3.5 Open Books:

Here is the descriptions of the books from the back covers and pictures:
HOW TO PROPOSE TO A PRINCE $ 6.99 (Book 3)(357 Pages)
Nothing will keep her from the man she’s destined to marry.
If the tiara fits, wear it! And that is exactly what Elizabeth Royle intends to do. After all, if you can’t be acknowledged as the daughter of a prince, the least you can do is marry one.


HOW TO PROPOSE TO A PRINCE

Mary Royle is the oldest of the triplets and fell in love and in the end married the Rogan the Duke of Blackthrone in the first book of the series, How to Seduce a Duke. Now it is the middle triplet sister and they most shy of them to get her love story told in this series.
Anne Royle is the middle sister of the triplets and the one that seems to be invisible of the three when they are with company in balls or parties. Anne liked to show her sister, Elizabeth, that she is practically invisible to all the other guests at the party so she plays a game of stealing certain guests glasses of wine to prove that they don’t even notice that she took them. But that didn’t work with Laird who noticed Anne playing her game and decided to catch her in the act to get to her close to him. Now the last thing Laird the Earl of MacLaren wants is a wife, so when he awakens to discover the fair-haired enchantress from the party at the foot of his bed, he behaves as any man might, by taking full advantage of the delicious situation. Then his family bursts in, and the chit brazenly announces that she is his betrothed, so he finds himself well on his way to being leg-shackled for life. Beautiful, reserved Anne Royle had never done anything so mad in her life because she entered the earl’s bedchamber with no intention of seduction at all. Rather, she hoped to discover a document that could contain the truth about her heritage. But now her world is turned upside down, and while she trembles at the thought of her wedding night, she finds she longs for it in ways she never thought possible.
Anne is the more reserved and quite of the triplet sisters though that doesn’t mean that she isn’t as special as her other sisters. I really like her because she uses her talent of being invisible to the ton to her advantage without taking it too personal like other women of the ton would have. After having read just a bit about Anne from the first book I was very intrigued to find out more about her as well as read how she would end up with her true love. In comes Laird the Earl of MacLaren who is a very infamous rogue who is trying to change his way in order to make his mother and his family name. I also like him because he maybe a rogue but he is trying to change his ways because he wants his family to be proud and needs a change in his life. I think they are a pretty good match for one another because though they have their differences they have some common qualities that bring them together. It was great to read more about the mystery of the Royle Triplet sisters because it’s a wonder if they are really princesses who were supposed to have been born still without the Prince Regent knowing about them. I’m looking forward to reading the last book in this series so I can finally find out how everything ends for them. I give this book 3.5 Open Books:

Here is the descriptions of the books from the back covers and pictures:

HOW TO ENGAGE AN EARL $ 6.99 (Book 2)(343 Pages)
She thought she was alone in his bedchamber…

All of London is abuzz with stories of the beautiful Royle sisters. Could these slightly scandalous triplets truly be the “secret” daughters of the highest prince in the land? One of them has already done very well for herself by marrying a duke. Now Anne Royle is about to take center stage as she discovers…

I found Kathryn Caskie through the Romance Novel TV forum, which is no longer available now because they decided to use blogging instead, and when I went to her website I read about her Royle Sisters Trilogy. I instantly knew that I had to find those books and read them. Well I went to the Barnes & Noble website and found that the first book in the series was not in the bookstore close to me but the second and third were.

I like reading historical romances especially when they involve a big mystery having to do with historical figures but twisted around to make it believable even though its not. This series is about triplet sisters who maybe the actual “secret” daughters of the prince regent of England and there is also so much scandal and mystery intangled with this story that the sisters feel that they have to find out. Mary Royle is the oldest of the triplets and the one that has chosen the man she is going to marry now that they are in England searching for titled gentlemen to marry.
Why is the notorious Duke of Blackstone ruining Mary’s well-laid plans to marry his brother, the handsome Viscount Wetherly? Well that is a understandable question because Mary has really set her mind to marry Rogan’s, Duke of Blackstone, brother after seeing him at the park various times. Every time she turns a corner, he is there—tantalizing her, teasing her…and the more she tries to ignore him, the more insistent he becomes. Rogan has a plan that he has set in motion to save his brother from marrying a title hungry Mary even though he hasn’t gotten to know her well enough to pass any judgments. Mary knows she must make an advantageous marriage, but survey Blackstone is the wrong man for her…isn’t he? Well while Mary is wondering why Rogan doesn’t want her marrying his brother Rogan is puttin his plan to work because he is not about to let his brother become bewitched by some wily blueblood pretender…even one as deliciously tempting as Mary. But until she came along, no woman has ever resisted his smooth well-practiced seductions so could it be that he’s actually fallen in love with this infuriating chit.

Well Mary and Rogan’s journey to falling in love is a very entertaining story because they are such strong, independent and stubborn people who want something and will do what they must to achieve it. The Royle secret about the triplets possibly being princesses and the supposed daughters of the Prince Regent gives this series a very exciting twist that I really enjoyed find more about. I really enjoyed getting to know Mary Royle because as the oldest triplet she feels responsible for her younger sisters and wants to make a titled marriage so they could have doors to the ton opened to them. I think Rogan is just the man for Mary because even though he is thought of as a blackhearted rogue deep down he is a decent gentleman in search of the woman who is out there waiting for him. I really got into this novel and I had fun getting to know Mary’s younger sisters Anne and Elizabeth that when I finished reading this novel I was looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I give this book 3.5 Open Books:

Who are the Royle sisters? All of London is gossiping about the beautiful triplets who’ve taken the ton by storm.

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
