Goodreads Synopsis

Is America ready for its first queen?

Power is intoxicating. Like first love, it can leave you breathless. Princess Beatrice was born with it. Princess Samantha was born with less. Some, like Nina Gonzalez, are pulled into it. And a few will claw their way in. Ahem, we’re looking at you Daphne Deighton.

As America adjusts to the idea of a queen on the throne, Beatrice grapples with everything she lost when she gained the ultimate crown. Samantha is busy living up to her “party princess” persona…and maybe adding a party prince by her side. Nina is trying to avoid the palace–and Prince Jefferson–at all costs. And a dangerous secret threatens to undo all of Daphne’s carefully laid “marry Prince Jefferson” plans.

A new reign has begun….


“Connor wanted to charge in like a knight in shining amour, offering to rescue her. Whereas Teddy gave her the confidence to rescue herself.”

Katharine McGee, Majesty

I put off this book because I loved American Royals so much and I didn’t want it to end. But then I read this book and I demand more??? That can’t be the end, right???

Majesty picks up after the events of American Royals and I thought I had an idea of where the story line would go and what ships would sail and boy WAS I WRONG. And I’ve never loved being wrong before? The character development from the beginning of book one to the end of Majesty was just *chef’s kiss*.

Can I pick a favorite character? Probably not… but maybe a three way tie between Beatrice, Samantha, and Teddy… with a dash of Marshall & Ethan & Nina… yeah definitely can’t pick. But I do know that I don’t care about Jeff or Daphne so if they’re not in the next book that I’m manifesting into existence that I won’t care at all.

Bottom line, I need more from my favorite Royals, because these kids are so much more interesting than that family in England IRL. Queen Beatrice forever.

Happy reading, folks!
