I've always had a fascination with royals and used to dream about being a princess. Stories like this make me realize that it would be a lot harder than I think because often times, a princess doesn't get to choose things for herself. It would be hard to have a marriage arranged for you from birth, especially when your heart belongs to another, and this is the exact situation that Elizabeth finds herself in. I don't know if I could go through with that and Elizabeth's struggles really show.

When I saw that Anna had written a royal romance, I was anxious to read it. I've enjoyed her elf-inspired books, and I wanted to see what she would do with a different kind of story. I wasn't disappointed. This is a delightful, clean romance that I feel comfortable handing to my daughters. When I first started reading, I thought it was a re-telling of the Sleeping Beauty story where two royal heirs are forced into an arranged marriage, fall in love with each other without knowing who they are, ...more

Once Upon Two Kingdoms: A Royal Romance is a young adult romantic fantasy written by Anna del C. Dye.

This would unite the two kingdoms and was considered customary practice. Royal children were expected to serve their country rather than marrying for love. Prince Patrick of Trebolett

Once Upon Two Kingdoms is the first book in my Royal Romance series. It is clean and a YA Medieval Romance. All the books in this series are stand-alone.

Once Upon Two Kingdoms is the story of a prince and a princess who are promised to each other by their fathers and how they take it when they find out. They spend a year trying to undo that pact, which will make them unhappy forever. This develop in the midst of some very intriguing happenings between the two kingdoms which always points a

Doomed arrangements

This is a sweet, clean, romance about a betrothed royal couple, who while fighting the inevitable, fall in love with strangers. Add into the mix a sinister plot to cause a war between these kingdoms and who's only hope may be to follow through with the marriage and you have a nice story. Just a bit on the sappy side but fun.

I think was an adorable book for older girls. It's traditional Sleeping Beauty in flavor and very clean. I'll enjoy sharing it with my granddaughters.

When I was approached to read Upon Two Kingdoms by Anna Del C. Dye I was delighted. I was ready for a break from reality. I found just that as this light medieval romance is a fun read for all ages. In the first few chapters I thought I knew where the story was going, but the plot twists surprised me. Lovely, innocent Princess Elizabeth faces Del brought the kingdoms and the citizens to life in such a way that a reader keeps turning the pages, wanting everything to work out, but not knowing it ...more

I liked the interchange between the two main characters best. They seemed most real when teasing each other and repeating their own little routine that came to mean more and more as they got to know each other. It is a very innocent story even though it includes political intrigue, sword fights, and death. If you want thought-provoking, deep fiction on these subjects, this isn't the book for you. If you want to spend some time in a sweet story where prejudices keep the heroes from their goals ...more

I almost quit reading this book at the beginning due to the lack of detail/organization/editing in the book- but I am glad I did not! I actually really enjoyed the story, and found the plot to be very interesting ;) The romance in it was sweet- especially the more I read!
