As I was searching through my Goodreads I realized I evidently love Royal Romances, they rank high on my reading radar—and for a good reason too. I love royal romances because they are so far removed from reality that I can easily loose my self in the story without focusing on how realistic the details are unlike when I read historical romance. So with out further ado here are 10 of my recent clean Royal Romance recommendations! Listed in no particular order.

Read my book Review
Dreams of magic and romance have no place in the heart of a poor farm girl. Or so Liena thought…
Magical visions have a way of turning the world upside-down. One minute Song Liena is a simple farm girl hoping for good luck at the matchmaker, and the next she is a student at the empire’s most rigorous and dangerous magic Academy.
It doesn’t take long for her to realize she’s ten years behind, her magic is weak, and she is in way over her head. But Liena is determined to work hard if it means a chance at a better life for her family.
She just wasn’t counting on being noticed by the handsome Crown Prince—a warrior-in-training said to have fire magic powerful enough to decimate entire armies.
But princes are not for peasants, and everything is not as it seems at the Academy. Monsters lurk around every corner, and someone is dabbling in dark, illegal magic.
Someone who has set their sinister sights on her.

Synopsis: It seems like a dream come true . . . until it forces her to question everything.
Brielle Adebayo is fully content teaching at a New York City public school and taking annual summer vacations with her mother to Martha’s Vineyard. But everything changes when her mom drops a bombshell–Brielle is really a princess in the island kingdom of Ọlọrọ Ilé, off the coast of Africa, and she must immediately assume her royal position, since the health of her grandfather, the king, is failing.
Distraught by all the secrets her mother kept, Brielle is further left spinning when the Ọlọrọ Ilé Royal Council brings up an old edict that states she must marry before her coronation, or the crown will pass to another.

After all of that I still have so many more clean Royal romances to recommend so I think there will definitely be a part two!
