Title: RELUCTANTLY ROYAL (Suddenly #3)
Author: Nichole Chase
Released: Aug. 26th, 2014
Maxwell Jameson Trevor, prince of Lilaria, hates his royal role. Despising the limelight, he takes solace in his art studio and steers clear of any drama. But when one of the newly discovered royals passes away, Maxwell’s brother Alex asks him to break the news to the old man’s granddaughter. Though he hates to be the bearer of doom and gloom, he doesn’t want the poor girl to find out from the tabloids. For Maxwell knows all too well how devastating that could be.
Coming from a broken home and modest background, newly ordained Lady Meredith Thysmer has seized her chance to make a better life for herself and her son. She’s not afraid to use her best assets to get what she wants. But when the unpretentious yet devastatingly handsome Max delivers his news, her plans for the future come crashing to a halt. In the challenging days ahead, Max’s compassion, humor, and steadfast loyalty to Meredith and her son win her over. She quickly finds herself doing something she swore would never happen again: falling in love. And yet Maxwell still refuses to completely drop his guard. Somehow Meredith’s got to find a way to seduce this reluctant royal.

Nichole: Hi Marty. Thanks for coming out to chat with us.
Nichole: And we appreciate it. How has school been?
Nichole: Do you have a favorite subject?
Marty: I like art class.
Nichole: I like art too. I also like to go hiking. What else do you like to do?
Marty: Video games, football. Oh! And fishing.
Nichole: I like to fish, too. It’s nice to be outside.
Marty: Oh yeah! Way better than being in a class room. Yesterday Max took me fishing and I caught a huge one. *holds up his hands*
Nichole: That’s a real big one! Did you let it go or did you decide to eat your conquest?
Marty: Max said we should let it go so it could get even bigger for next time.
Nichole: Do you go fishing with Max often?
Marty: We try to go at least once a week, even if it’s only for a little while. It’s good for us guys to get some fresh air.
Nichole: I suppose fresh air is good for everyone. So what do you think about Max dating your mom?
Marty: At first I thought it was pretty gross, but I’m used to it now.
Nichole: Do you like Max?
Marty: Oh yeah! The other day we were playing one of my video games and I creamed him, but I think he let me win. I didn’t need him to let me win. I was taking it easy on him. That’s what friends do.
Nichole: Friends are important. What do you think about all the people taking your picture now?
Marty: It’s weird.
Nichole: Maybe they think you’re cute.
Marty: That’s just gross.
Nichole: Nah. You know how moms are. They like to look at pictures of everyone’s kids. Thank you for coming and answering my questions.
Marty: I mean, thank you for having me.
Nichole: The pleasure was mine.
Marty: Uh, mom? I don’t know what to say to that?
Nichole: I’m just messing with you. Get outta here and do something fun.
