Recklessly Royal (Suddenly #2) by Nichole Chase

Catherine has spent her life being the perfect princess. She’s kept her hands clean, her head down, and most importantly—men at arm’s length. After all, most men are after only one thing, and for Cathy there’s a lot more at stake than her bed; she has to worry about the fate of an entire nation. But at the rate she’s going, Cathy is afraid she’ll give the Virgin Queen a run for her money. She is tired of waiting for someone good enough to come along. She has a plan, and it all hinges on seducing the one man who seems utterly unimpressed by all things royal. The one man she is tempted by more than any other . . .

When David arrives at the royal wedding of his friend, the newly ordained Duchess Samantha Rousseau, he expected to feel uncomfortable and out of his element, but he wasn’t prepared to be targeted by Prince Alex’s gorgeous younger sister. With Cathy’s giant blue eyes, killer figure, and sense of humor, it won’t take long before he gives in. But when he finds out just how innocent the crown princess really is, will he play the part of knight in shining armor or the dashing rogue?

First line:
There wouldn't be more press outside Rousseau Manor if Queen Elizabeth herself was planning to parade around in her panties while singing the British national anthem.

There are two kinds of series: one that follows the same main character(s) all the way through and one that is set in the same world but follows different main characters each book (often secondary characters in previous and future books). Suddenly series is one of the latter. I love series like this because each character gets to tell their own story, but at the same time you get an update on an MC from a previous book that you've been dying to know what happened.

Cathy works hard to keep up her perfect public persona. She does everything by the book and attends several openings/ceremonies/events a day. She just wants a way to let loose and a guy she can be herself around. She's cute and smart and funny and she loves her job, she just needs to learn not to overwork herself or her staff, who are extremely dedicated to her. David feels like a protective big brother when it comes to Samantha, the new princess (and former MC). He sees right away that Princess Catherine and Cathy are two different people. One is her public persona and the other is who she really is. David wants to teach her how to compromise and be both without disgracing herself. His goal is to teach her that she needs to let loose every once in awhile.

Recklessly Royal is a modern day fairytale that is perfect for people who love reading about princesses or unlikely love.
