The Backup Princess Blitz

Author: Kate O’Keeffe
Series: Royally Kissed, #1
Publication date: April 4th 2024
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

When a Texas gal punches a prince instead of curtsying, you know this isn’t your grandmother’s fairy tale.

Taking the bull by the horns is child’s play compared to ruling Malveaux. Yet here I am, a Texas girl turned princess, swapping tacos for a tiara.

Then I meet Europe’s most eligible bachelor, the irritatingly handsome Prince Alexander, and accidentally deck him instead of curtsying.

Oops.

I’d feel bad if he wasn’t such a self-satisfied jerk.

Now, I’m racing against a royal clock that ticks with the urgency of a preening peacock, trying not to let down my newfound country or my own wild heart. Alexander? He’s a walking contradiction, with a smirk that heats my blood and eyes that tell tales of a depth I didn’t expect.

Decisions aren’t exactly my rodeo, but this time, my choice could cost me my new crown—or lead to a love story that rewrites my happily ever after.

Will this Texas girl rise to the royal challenge, or is this one fairytale destined to end with the slipper never found?

The Princess Diaries meets The Hating Game in this in this dizzyingly romantic modern royal romcom for grown-ups, where an American girl’s unexpected ascent to royalty collides with a fiery romance with a hot neighboring prince. The Backup Princess is a closed-door romance with all the sizzle but without the spice, and a guaranteed happily ever after. It’s Book 1 in the brand new series, Royally Kissed.



an excerpt

A smile tugs at the edges of my mouth, the way it always does when I think of Maddie. There’s something about her that draws me to her, like a magnetic pull. It’s not just that she’s a beautiful woman, but there’s no denying she is. She’s got long dark hair that frames her fine features perfectly, highlighting her iridescent blue eyes—and the most kissable of mouths with full, inviting lips.

Yes, those lips.

I admit, I’ve thought about kissing her. More than once. That day we rode the bike to the top of the hill, I could think of nothing else. I mean, really, what’s a guy to do when the woman he can’t stop thinking about licks her ice cream in the sexiest way imaginable?

It took all my self-control not to take her in my arms and insist she replace her ice cream with me before I gave her the most long-awaited and anticipated kiss of my whole life.

There have been other moments, moments that would have done for a woman I didn’t care for the way I do Maddie. There’s no denying I wanted it to happen.

But when it does happen—and I so hope it will happen—I want it to be perfect. This isn’t just some girl with which I’m having a flirtation. This is Madeline. She’s special. I want our first kiss to be nothing short of perfect.
