I liked this one but I think that it was the weakest book in the series for me. I don't usually look for royal romances and I am not really sure if I am a fan of the trope or not. I like the idea of a royal romance but I can't really think of any that I was excited to read either. I wanted to read this book because I really enjoyed the first two books from the series and wanted to see what would happen to the other members of the Wes

Magnus needs to work on those wooing skills, the man zometimes has no tact, “would it help if I told you that I normally avoid complicated, but you’re one hot mess I can’t get out of my head?” Magnus's girl sure knows how to rein him in when he needs it, "he pulled her hand to his lips and nipped it gently. “But you’ve found a quick cure for a b***r.” Magnus is always busting his woman's chops, "he lightly slapped her rump beneath the bedsheets. “Perhaps I would do better with some instruction. ...more

The dynamic between Rachelle and Prince Magnus was so much fun to read. The way they met at Eric's premiere was hilarious. I loved her sweet demeanor, yet she was feisty and held her own. Magnus held that arrogance that comes with royalty. I really loved it when she would knock him down a notch or two, and he seemed to enjoy it as well. They had great chemistry, and I liked how the tension built between these two. There was a lot going on around them, with her family's issues and Delinda showing ...more

Rachelle Westerly needs a break. After years of acting as the family peacekeeper, she decides to go and visit her movie star brother. Rachelle is an amazing character. She is smart and funny , quite amd reserved and a heart so full of love. Rachelle loves with everything she has. Soon-to-be leader of Vandorra, Prince Magnus de Bartelebon always gets what he wants.

“Not yet. Go back to the guests, Father. I’ll handle this.” King Tadeas put a hand on his son’s shoulder. “I am a father first and a king second. My place is with you. This is one fight you won’t face alone.”

You just don't understand how much fun I had with this book. Rachelle and Magnus as a couple was funny and inspiring. I think Reggie and Finn took the cake but that Epilogue... I cried. To have a heart that big, fictional or not is unheard of. I was invested and loved the love and commitment

In Royal Heir we revisit the Westerly family and all that is their crazy, messed up relationships. Rachelle goes to London to check on her brother, Eric because he seemed “off” at their brother’s wedding. Once there she is met with a very cool welcome and begins to feel like she is definitely not wanted in Eric’s home. While at the premiere of Eric’s new movie, Rachelle meets Crown Prince Magnus Gustavus Valentine de Bartelebon and he is a pretentious as his name sounds. Magnus is definitely the ...more

Excellent story! I LOVE the Westerly's! This is Rachellel's story and it was fun and snarky, sexy and exciting! Two great characters and their individual situations was so enjoyable to read.

Rachelle is strong and independent and loyal but she is unsure of herself. Magnus is a Prince with the weight of his country's success on his shoulders and DEFINITELY doesn't believe in love. When these two get together it's fireworks!!

I read a ARC review copy from NG for review purposes.

This is book book 3 in the series and I really enjoyed it. It was definitely one that I could not put down. It stars Rachelle Westerly who is in Europe with her actor brother Eric. Eric has major issues and I mean MAJOR and Rachelle knows this but he also is estranged and he gives her a hard time in letting her in.

Magnus is a prince who is not a people person. One day he meets a sick child and the child wants to meet his hero, a comic book mov

A Prince, a super hero, a real and down to earth heroine, and so much more in Ruth Cardellos new Westerly novel. A warm, funny, unconventional romance.

Along the way he bumps into a gorgeous woman, mistakes her identity. Rachelle is stunned when she sees Prince Marcus on the Red carpet at her brothers premier.

I absolutely loved this book!!! Everything I hope to happen in a book happened. There was tons of laughter along with some suspense and a few tears were also shed. It's just amazing how each book seems to get netter than the one before. Ruth is definitely a go to author and I will never fail to read any book she writes!!!

What woman in their right mind would tell Prince Magnus no? Rachelle, that's who. All she wants to do is spend some time with her brother and get to know him better. Magnus is just looking to make the lives of his subjects better. They have a few rough spots along the way, but it makes the ending so much better because of these.

Ugh! I absolutely hate it when an author whose books I love has one come out that just leaves me flat. I'm not a huge fan of "Royal" stories so it's likely that it just isn't for me.

To be fair though the book is very well done. The writing is excellent, the pace is nice, and the characters whether you love them or hate them are memorable. So if you enjoy a little royalty in your romances this book could be for you.

Poor follow up to the previous books. Disappointed in the total asshole the Prince turned out to be. I am so sick and tired of romance authors thinking that women just want to be controlled and treated like trash and call it love. I don’t care if he fit her in all the other things that mattered. The arrogant and egotistical jackass ways that he treated a good woman were despicable. That behavior is not acceptable.

Not Ever Girl wants a Prince, and Not Every Prince is Charming !! This is so true!! Ruth takes an idea and expands it into a very entertaining and heart warming story that is very believable. Rachelle Westerly is looking for peace and rest..where as Prince Magnus de Bartelebon is looking to what he does best. Anything he wants! As the teaser from Ruth tells you sparks will fly, but she doesn't tell you the out come, and neither will I. This book is to be savored and enjoyed to the most. The char ...more

Ruth Cardello has done it again. While thinking her writing and stories couldn't get any better, Boom there it is. Rochelle the family peacekeeper meets the playboy prince. Ruth's writing just grabs you from the beginning and keeps you right through the ending. She humanizes her characters so well that it's hard not to think of them as friends. Royal Heir is totally worth the read. A warm cuddly read you won't want to put down. Good for this never-ending winter.

When ever I get a hold of one of Ruth's books I am never let down. She always seems to surprise me with every turn I take while reading one of her books. Royal Heir is no different. I need to find out how Ruth comes up with these characters and the story for them that fits so perfectly. I think Rachelle and Magnus have become my favorite couple. This story is just so captivating. I can't wait to see what else Ruth has up her sleeve.

Rachelle Westerly is my new favorite heroine. I identify with her because she tries to be family's peacekeeper. However all peacekeepers need a break sometimes. Rachelle finds a way to let some steam off by finding something very unexpected. Love. I highly recommend this book!!! Ruth Cardello has once again written a fantastic book!!!!!

His Greatest Treasure!!!

Rachelle Westerly needed a break from her family's drama. After acting like the family's peacemaker for years, her movie star brother Eric gave her the perfect opportunity to escape.

Her first day of vacation wasn't as relaxing as she thought it would be, she found herself living in a house with staff members and didn't see the brother to visit at all. She decided to go to Eric's movie premiere, while on the red carpet she landed in the arms of a real life Prince.

The stories of the Westerly children get better and better and have been able to pull me in faster and faster. For Rachelle Westerly and Prince Magnus their story even has a moment of suspense and action that added a quick and thrilling element to the story.

I have been anxiously awaiting the release of Royal Heir the third installment of Ruth Cardello's Westerly Billionaires Series.

I was not disappointed, I didn't think the author could top the other two books in this series but she did and left me wanting more.

Rachelle Westerly is the nurturer of the family and always puts her siblings first. She feels that she needs to get away for awhile and takes her brother Eric up on his offer to visit him in Europe.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the third book in the series, and I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, as the family dynamics are key to these stories. Each one is unique, and I enjoyed that this one went into the royal prince romance route.

Rachelle is in London trying to get away from her family and all their problems. Staying at Eric's place might give her the chance to bond with him without all the disturbances her family usually creates. But Eric is not around enough for her to do that.

Meeting Crown Prince Magnus at Eric's movie premiere does not go well. He is the most arrogant and rude man she has ever met. Thanks to Eric's intervention, Magnus is warned Rachelle is not to be disrespected. But something goes terribly wrong an

I love Rachel!

Rachel is caring and compassion. I adore her, and her drive to help her family. It really is lovely when a character is also a role model. I loved seeing how she would react throughout all the different situations she found herself in. Also, I love how she takes the time to understand Magnus even when he is coming off as a total dick. Haha.
