Bellamy Sullivan’s life is hardly regal. She’s a waitress from Ohio who’s been on her own since she was sixteen, working several jobs while her dreams of being a fashion designer stay just that. But everything changes when PR maven and soon-to-be-royal Lemon Beauchamp drops in to announce that Bellamy is a princess. Unfortunately, Bellamy’s newly assigned bodyguard is the

Adorable!

I am such a big fan of the Royals of Monterra, it's one of my very favorite contemporary romance series. I was really excited when I found out Ms. Wilson had written a novella to go along with her series (I still need to read some of the other novellas in the Kindle Monterra World). Anyway, this was a fun addition and fits right in, but also stands very well on its own. You don't have to read the other books to enjoy this one.

Bellamy is such a sweet likable character. Very down to eart

4.5

I love this series! And this author. I was so happy to get another book (even if it is a shorter one) to keep my love of this series going. The chemistry between these characters is off the charts and man, they don't even kiss for most of the book! I love the sparky fireworks that progressed right along with their friendship. It was really good. (That Enzo is so swoony!)

I wish my kindle fire was able to do the kindle in motion thing though. I have no idea what that is about and I thought my k

I would like to thank netgalley and Montlake Romance for the opportunity to read this book.
The romance was sweet, but the circumstances ridicules and the ending far to convenient.

I was really intrigued by the title of this book, having always been a “Princess Diaries” fan, and was pleased to discover Sariah Wilson as an author whose works I’ll want to follow in the future. This is a great, light beach-type read that’s perfect for teens and anyone looking for something fun to sit down and relax with. It never gets too heavy or tries to feel too serious, but rather seeks to entertain and tell a lighthearted tale of a second chance at falling in love.

4.5--A fun return to Monterra!

While not a direct sequel to the Royals of Monterra, this was a fun expansion off the series. Ms. Wilson writes such great main characters. Bellamy was sweet...Enzo was swoony. :) There were some great, romantic, toe-curling moments. The only thing I wish is that it was longer...I would have loved more moments with just them in the middle of the book. But that's the problem with a good novella...you just want more!! :)

So basically, read this one! And if you haven't

It has taken me awhile to review this because I haven't been sure how I felt about the new technology. This was a Kindle in Motion book. That means that it included graphics, like video snippets. For someone like me, with no vivid imagination, it was helpful to picture the characters. The acting was well done, but the clips were distracting. I know there is supposed to be a way to turn them off. What I would have loved is if each clip ran once, and you could tap to replay them. As it was, they r ...more

I wanted more from this one. It's a cute story and I enjoyed it but it was just too light and fluffy and all wrapped up way too quickly.
As for Kindle in Motion part of it... Not sure I'm a fan, seemed super cheesy.

Content: Clean - just passionate kissing

This was my first book by Sariah Wilson and I found it a really enjoyable light read. It's also my first read in the Royals of Monterra series, but I wasn't lost or confused so this one seems to be a stand alone.
What would you do if you suddenly found out you're a princess and your life goes from being a waitress in a 50's themed restaurant to being followed around by cameras and dating famous actors, athletes and wealthy business men for a reality TV show?
This is what Bellamy Sullivan is deali

ARC Review: Royal Design (The Royals of Monterra) by Sariah Wilson

Bellamy is a realist. From an early age, her world has been full of disappointments and heartbreaking losses. Her resilience has allowed her to roll with the punches and turn those negatives into positives through hard work and positive thinking she has turned her tragedies into her motivations. With three words, her life will never be the same. "You're a Princess", is the last thing she expects to hear about herself. Her life has

Waitress Bellamy Sullivan receives the shocking revelation that she is a real life Princess and more importantly (at least to Bellamy) this could give her the chance to live her dream of working with the designer of her choice. But only if she is willing to sign on the dotted line & agree to move to New York to star in her own reality TV dating show.

Before the ink has dried Bellamy's world is rocked off its axis yet again, when she discovers she has just committed herself to another non-neg

Such a cute novella!

I really enjoyed this story, especially after having already read the other books Sariah Wilson in this series. The characters were so likeable, had great chemistry, and fun dialogue. Definitely some toe-curling romance, but clean as well. This was my first time reading an animated book, where there are actual videos every few pages with people acting out parts you're reading. As great of an idea as it is, I really disliked it. I found it distracted me from the story and I co

FTC DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED AN E-ARC FROM THE PUBLISHER THROUGH NET GALLEY. I VOLUNTARILY OFFER MY HONEST REVIEW OF THE BOOK, THOUGH IT IS NOT EXPECTED OF ME! RECEIPT OF THIS BOOK IN THIS MANNER DOES NOT AFFECT MY OPINION OF THE BOOK OR THE CONTENT OF MY REVIEW!

I've had my shares of ups and downs with this series, but on the whole I've enjoyed them. So when I found out that there was going to be a fourth book added to the series when the publisher had opted for no further books, I was overjoyed!

Another fun entry to the Monterra world, even if it was only a novella. It felt rather rushed and a bit rehashed when compared to the other full length books, but that doesn't mean it wasn't fun. Bellamy is a great addition to the princess line.

However, be sure to turn off the enhanced content. It was completely pointless, made the more ridiculous by the overly modelesque male "actors." Combine that with the worst ham acting since the silent movie era, and it cheapens the book to the level of a

Reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf

Take your average American young woman with dreams and plans… and far too little money to make them a reality. Add a little family history, unknown, into the mix. Sneak in a man who broke her heart once upon a time. And stir in a modern day fairy godmother with an astounding announcement. Mix well with humor, romance and a reality show… and the result is a fun, charming, modern day fairy tale complete with princess.

I had fun with Royal Design. Bellamy is a sweet, fun

Royal Design is a wonderful novella written by author Sariah Wilson about the Royals of Monterra. This is my first time readingwith Kindle in Motion. I liked it a lot.

Maybe because this was shorter than the others, but I didn't think there was nearly as much to it as the others in the series. It was an OK book, but especially after the previous one, it seemed like it was mostly fluff.

Pleasant quick read

This is a good and quick read. It brings back some favorite characters and introduces new. It has the humor, romance, and imagery I've appreciated in the other books. The book has a steamy but clean romantic feel, and there is plenty of humor to be found in the parade of dates. I enjoy the concept of gifs interspersed, but eventually turned it off because it was a bit distracting.

Loved ed it the pictures were a great idea, at first I thought I didn't like them but after chapter two I was looking forward to them.

A very good romance book, with a little extra twist. Enjoy, the pictures really bring it to life. Happy reading a Cinderella story.

Impressed

I don't normally choose novellas because I read too fast and they don't last long enough. This one was an advertisement on my kindle and I was intrigued by the video clip idea, so I downloaded without realizing it was so short. I decided to read it anyway. I am so glad I did! Such a cute story. I really like this book format as well! It was so cool to see it. I will be looking at the authors other titles now. Well done!
