You can read this one as a standalone novel, but as the previous two books in this trilogy are highly enjoyable, why would you want to miss out on such satisfying romance?

Being royalty always seems to put the characters one step away from death and a sinister plot.

There’s conspiracy, intrigue, spies, weddings, romance, and all the elements and trappings of a thoroughly delicious read. The division of loyalties between Noelle and Jeremy keep the romantic tension zipping, while the kisses are hea
Happy Reading Watching

Lovely clean series about royalty, relationship and some spy work :)

Best one of the series! Is this book perfect ? No. Is it corny? Sometimes, but I enjoyed it and I really liked the romantic relationship in this one not so Insta love. The best part of all is this Traci Hunter Abramson is a clean writer. So you never have to worry about swearing, steamy scenes or anything like that.
Looking forward to reading more by this athour. ;)

Meridia is going to have two royal weddings within a few months of each other.

Janessa is the bride in the second wedding. Her brother Jeremy is CIA so is asked to go over early to help as well. He has a cover job since only a few people can know what his true purpose is.

There are several different character stories that are followed in Royal Brides. Janessa, whom we met in Book 1, is finally ready to marry her prince, but a security scare at her brother-in-law's wedding puts everyone on edge and security is tighter than ever. Her brother, Jeremy, is called in to help, and love might be in the cards for him, too. Noelle is an employee of the castle and has a unique position between both worlds, but there's a lot at stake.

Noelle was raised in the palace in Meridia. For the past year, she has lived in the United States where she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When King Eduard calls, asking her to act as a courier on the royal family jet, she cannot refuse the assignment. Once she gets home to Meridia, she is asked to assist in planning a royal wedding for Prince Stefano. At the wedding, she sees suspicious activity and helps diffuse a bomb, saving hundreds of people!
Jeremy Rogers, a CIA op
Finally in this third book in the series, the royal wedding happens! Actually two royal weddings happen, and again a CIA agent is brought in to foil any evil doers trying to bomb the event and kill the royal family of Meridia. No royals falling in love this time. It's a girl with a longtime family legacy of serving the royal household who helps find the bomb and defuse it before the first wedding and is then hired on by the CIA to help as an insider for the second wedding. She falls in love with ...more

Loved this fluffy read: suspense, romance and some mystery are always a good distraction from the seriousness of life.
Third in the series (I enjoyed the first two slightly more). It is time for the royal weddings of the Princes of Meridian (see first two books in series). But someone wants the all the royal family dead. Jeremy Rogers from the CIA gets assigned to help with secuirty after an attempted bombing. His sister is marrying Prince Garret so it is perfect cover. Noelle Saldera is a daughter of servant but her keen eye helped advert the first disaster so she too is asked to help in planning the wedding an ...more

I've loved this series. The plots were interesting and well written and there was always a good twist at the end that I didn't see coming, which is getting more rare. I enjoyed seeing Janessa and Garrett again, but missed Stefano and Alora.

Also, we never were told what was in the package that Jeremy dropped off for Noelle to deliver in the beginning. It's not a big deal, it just bugged me a little.

Noelle assists in the security for two weddings - even though she's seen as a fill-in wedding assistant. Jeremy is an FBI operative and brother to one of the brides. They work side by side, even though they don't realize it. Each reports to the head of security. I like the way Jeremy learns another language with the help of Noelle's family. And I enjoyed watching how her family reacts to her new faith.

Didn't read the other two but enjoyed this book without being lost. Adventure, mystery & good, clean romance. I thought it was a little premature (spoiler alert) that he's buying a wedding ring before CIA permission for a relationship and before the couple establishing more to their relationship besides a few lingering kisses - a little rushing it.

And you thought your wedding was stressful! As this is #3, I shall have the pleasure to hunt down #1 and #2. And it's always a pleasure to bask in the Mediterranean sun vicariously, especially in December. Kudos to reader Luone Ingram for inventing a Meridian accent!

I have all the books in the “Royal” series a 5 star but this one was probably more than a 5. It tied up the other two stories very nicely. This book was mor suspenseful than the other two and keeps the reader anticipating what will happen next. It also has some clean romance.

I generally can guess who is behind something, but this one got me. It was a good ending to the series. I wish there had been more of Stefano and Alora in this book, but I loved the addition of Janessa's brother.

A fun ending to the series. I wish it would have had more of Stefano and wife, especially when their "romance" was most recent in memory (book 2).

Ok a bit too much on the unrealistic but I made it through and don't regret the read. I was still in need of a distraction and it fit the bill.

Royal Brides by Traci Hunter Abramson was a very cute and exciting read. Noelle Saldera is a native Meridian, a made up city on the European coast, and she yearns for adventure, being the daughter of a servant she doesn’t really get to go places very often, so helping plan Prince Stefano’s wedding is about as exciting as her life gets. But after finding something unexpected at Prince Stefano’s wedding, she enlisted to help the CIA to stop the same thing from happening when Stefano’s younger brot ...more

The action and excitement picks up from Abramson's two earlier "Royal" novels. Although there is enough information within the book's cover to be read as a "stand alone", the reader will feel slightly confused, at times, if he/she has not read the prior novels. I missed the 2nd "Royal" Novel and felt confused at time...I was thankful I had read the first one.

The wedding of the first Prince is about to tale place. With extensive security, it still had major complications. Not wanting the younger

***3.5 stars***

This is the third book featuring the Royals of Meridian. This is also the first book I have read in the series. I have purchased the kindle edition of Royal Target, but have not had the opportunity to read it yet. While I understood what was happening in this story, it would have been better for me to read the other books.

Having gotten that out of the way. This book was full of suspense. Jeremy Rogers has been called to work on the attempted bombing of Prince Stefano's wedding. Th
