"After a scandalous secret turns their fairy-tale wedding into a nightmare, Rebecca 'Bex' Porter and her husband Prince Nicholas are in self-imposed exile. The public is angry. The Queen is even angrier. And the press is salivating. Cutting themselves off from friends and family, and escaping the world's judgmental eyes, feels like the best way to protect their fragile, all-consuming romance. But when a crisis forces the new Duke and Duchess back to London, the Band-Aid they'd placed over their problems starts to peel at the edges. Now, as old family secrets and new ones threaten to derail her new royal life, Bex has to face the emotional wreckage she and Nick left behind: with the Queen, with the world, and with Nick's brother Freddie, whose sins may not be so easily forgotten--nor forgiven."--Provided by publisher.

From Library Staff

A sequel to “The Royal We,” this is an excellent book. It's a lot of fun to read. The writing’s light, with almost a summer feel to it. I believe you’ll thoroughly enjoy this. And even if you’re not a royal watcher, I think it’s engaging enough to hold your attention. Recommended by Cecilia.

For romcoms, these "Royal We" books are simply too long. That said, they are super soapy and entertaining.

Note: This is a sequel and you absolutely must read book one first. Complete nonsense and therefore a good beach read - and despite the disclaimer of "no resemblance to any person living or dead" this is obviously inspired by the current royal family.

Review excerpt: "TW: Miscarriage, infertility

The Heir Affair is the follow up to 2015’s debut 'The Royal We', a book I enjoyed immensely. Unfortunately, while the humor and the narrator’s voice still worked for me, there was no character growth at all in 'The Heir Affair'. A lot of things happen in the book, but the three main characters, Bex, Nick and Freddie all end up at pretty much the same place they started at.

First of all, you really do need to read 'The Royal We' to understand 'The Heir Affair'. This book takes place almost immediately after the first one, and there isn’t a ton of exposition to understand the character relationships that were developed in 'The Royal We'."
