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.

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.
