American Royalty

First she discovers she's the secret daughter of the American president, then she falls for a British prince. Ariella Winthrop's life can't get much more complicated. Or can it?

For me this book lacked depth, the relationship didn't really feel so real since the hero and heroine hardly spent that much time together and I felt the romance was rushed. The book seemed sickly sweet sometimes, the heroine is the recently discovered illegitimate daughter of the President, revelation that came out in the first book of the series, while the hero is a royal. I really wasn't that invested in the romance.
Good book and nice conclusion to the series. As of the last book (A Very Exclusive Engagement - Andrea Laurence) the mystery of how the secret of Ariella's birth was discovered has been solved and the perpetrators have been caught. Now it is time for Ariella to meet her father and come to terms with her new life. She has been trying to keep things as normal as possible, continuing her work as an event planner and being with her friends. At one of her events she meets Simon Worth, British prince ...more

Let's get some things straight here.

This book is a little bit of fan fiction. Simon Worth and his brother (whatever his name is) are moulds from Princes William and Harry. The additional younger brother? Just to fill in and make it a little more different. I mean, Prince Charles and Camilla even exist, Simon's mother is also dead, so can it be any more obvious?

The representation of the Office of the President of the United States and the President himself is plainly ridiculous too. Why would the
Affairs Of State by Jennifer Lewis was a good book. Simon is a British Prince. His family goes by the old ways. They don't think he should get involved with an American. He travels back to forth to D.C. to be with an American. Ariella has her own business. She was adopted and they died. Ariella just learns she is the daughter of the President. She meets her real mother and father. Parents were never married and apart 28 years. Their love for each other never died. In the end they get back togeth ...more
Mmmm tenia más expectativas en esta historia... no sé, no me convenció del todo
Ok story, little disconcerting to have England's royal sprout a fictional branch.
Jennifer Lewis' writing in Affairs of State shows no chemistry between Ariella and Simon, and the love scenes are appallingly boring. The story feels rushed and sluggish at the same time. Ariella and Simon spend so much time apart throughout the book that (view spoiler) seems to come out of nowhere. (view spoiler) feels tacked on, and the way the story ends, with all of the couple's obstacles overcome virtually overnight, is too unre ...more
Review Posted on

Affairs of State by Jennifer Lewis was more of a storybook romance, with the hero being English Royalty. Grandson to the Queen no less. And Ariella recently discovered that her birth father is the US President. Her story has been unfolding in the previous novels, and she appears on Television with her famous dad in this book.

I like how toward the last few chapter when by fast and had it funny parts that made me laugh. I am glade that Ariella finally have her biological parent together, also after 28 years they have not lost their love for each other. So they rekindle their love and getting married. I don't know why, but I like the toward the end of the book I guess it didn't drag like the beginning have drag on.
I personally didn't care for the story. The only reason I'm giving it two stars was because I've read so much worse. While it may be an interesting 'royalty' novel, it really didn't deal with what I would call, 'real life situations, problems, etc.' I found it lacking.

Good story but was just missing something.

I’ve been making up stories since the day I was born. I always loved to draw as well as write and as a child I drew graphic novellas featuring penniless but plucky Cinderella heroines. My love of daydreaming earned me the nickname “Dozy Duck” in Kindergarten, and I still consider staring into space to be a constructive activity.

I was born in Manhattan but my family moved to London when I was six m
