What’s a crown prince to do with time on his hands? Or better yet, who? It’s Prince Garrett’s turn to find love in this mouthwatering standalone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Royal Pain.
Once upon a time I was being groomed to sit on the throne of Wildemar. Now I’m lucky they let me into the palace through the front door. After I was kidnapped and tortured by extremists, my reward upon my release is that nobody trusts me enough to let me be king. And since my twin brother, Kian, has assumed all my responsibilities, I figure why not take over as the black sheep?
But after breaking things off with my betrothed—we never had much chemistry, anyway—and giving the jetsetting playboy lifestyle a try, I’m starting to wonder if I’m cut out for this s***. Then I meet Lola Barnes, a drop-dead gorgeous entrepreneur from the States who’s as refreshing as she is feisty.
It’s supposed to be a one-night-stand—until the press catches wind of my “new American sweetheart.” Trouble is, Lola’s no sweetheart. But the more I see our names together in the headlines, the more I find myself craving another taste. . . .

Having read Royal Pain, which I liked a lot, I knew I would want to read ROYAL TREATMENT, which by the way stands perfectly on its own. And ROYAL TREATMENT gave me so much more than I ever expected; it is not a good book, it is a great book! What a joy to have a hero who is not a manwhore, who is actually a very nice man, even if a tad rigid with rules and regulations, but it goes with the territory of being a prince, but he is far from boring. Lola is your opposite kind of girl: bright red hair, with tattoos and piercings; not exactly inconspicuous, but I loved that Ms. Wolf did not go overboard. Lola has a real job, she is successful; she is not your needy damsel in distress, but not at all.
The dialogues are simply outstanding, the writing eloquent and crisp, the characters superbly defined, and both Lola and Garrett are lovely people I would like to have as friends, even though Garrett’s environment is stressful; those paparazzi gave me the willies! There were such lovely little details, such as the caramel macarons, a chat about omelets, and some lovely minor characters as well. Lola’s business was a fun one that I had never seen before in a romance novel, and it was a treat. The romance is not rushed, and as everything in ROYAL TREATMENT, entirely convincing, which is seldom the case in contemporary fictional royal romances. I loved every moment, every scene; everything was done to perfection, and the ending was explosive and very emotional. As an added bonus, I thought the cover model looked exactly how Garrett should look. I certainly felt I got the ROYAL TREATMENT with this irresistible book!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
