Royally Roma by Teri Wilson
Royally Roma by Teri Wilson is a 2017 Pocket Star publication.
Royally Roma is a cute tribute to, and retelling of the classic Audrey Hepburn movie, ‘Roman Holiday’.

Niccolo is weary of covering up for his brother’s wild and uncensored behavior and carrying the entire burden of being the Crown Prince on his own. So, needing a break from his responsibilities, he takes advantage of Julia’s mistake and allows himself to be taken around Rome on a private one day tour, deliberately shirking his obligations.

This is a delightful story, although it moves along at breakneck speed and there is little time for a slow romantic build up. So, there is an immediate attraction, but it works in this instance. The frenetic pacing did hurt the character depth and development, but I’m thinking this story works okay despite that. It’s the type of book you pick up when you need a change from too much drama and angst, and just want a light, easy, romantic escapist read.
This one is not intended to be overly serious and if taken in that context is charming and entertaining.
