The Royal Bodyguard
The Royal Bodyguard was not what I expected. I did not realize this is a second book in a series. I recommend reading the first book because some background information would have been useful. I like the premise, but the story did not connect with me. The heroine exiled princess tells the story, and that is problematic. I would have ...more
Just not for me for me

I'm becoming quite the fan of Lindsay's writing, she pulls you in from the very beginning. And even though I wasn't loving it as much as I hoped, I was engaged the whole time.

When her husband died in a crash, she further separated herself from everything by hiding from the world. Caroline has a very complicated history with her family - and a lot of secrets. Including her job as a reporter and her previous role as a gossip ...more

Lindsay Emory’s immensely readable The Royal Bodyguard is a dishy mix of entertainment and danger, with a scandalous formerly royal heroine and an honor-bound bodyguard determined to do all he can to resist her.
Part of Emory’s Royal Runaway world, this book focuses on Drieden Princess Thea’s sister, the former Princess Caroline. After eloping with a race car driver, Caroline was disinherited ...more
Caroline seems to have a lot of secrets hiding in her closet and as the story progresses it looks as though if they were to be exposed not only might they be damaging to her personally (royal image and all that jazz) but they also might hurt those she cares about.
Curious it seems by nature and ...more
There are substantial similarities to the British Royal Family (BRF), in fact, it's dedicated to Harry and Meghan which nearly put me off as I am not a fan of that relationship. Still, it is not a reimaging of the British Family.Yes, there are paparazzi issues, and ...more
Caroline was a very interesting main character; one that I liked. She was the black sheep of the family. The real truth is that she was unique and marched to the beat of her own drummer. Oh, she had tried to be the proper, make no waves Princess Caroline. She followed the "rules" for years until she just ...more
I haven't read the first book in this series ' The Royal Runaway' so I had no idea what I was getting into but suprisingly I liked this one plenty. This book starts with princess Carolina of Drieden who was exiled from her own country when she broke rules and disgraced her family by running away with a race car driver Stavros. On the begining note we get to know that her stort marriage was not a ...more

This book technically follows The Royal Runaway but each of these novels are stand alone books. You won't be lost reading The Royal Bodyguard if you've not read Runaway. I do encourage you to read The Royal Runaway though.
In this edition of the royal family of Drieden the focus is on the second oldest female princess. Caroline has been excommunicated from the royal family by her grandmother, the Queen, but that will never stop her from ...more
The action moves between many different locations around Europe and I was intrigued as Caroline and Hugh attempt to capture and discover what Christian, her sister's ex-fiance, is up to.
This is a single POV story from Caroline's perspective. While I wish we had been able to ...more

I was delighted to get a copy of this novel. I loved this story. Caroline was immediately a likable character that you wanted to know the tale of; a disowned princess. Early on in the novel, she is faced with a tragic loss of Stavros, the race car driver that she ran off with. She has to find her way...and eventually to Hugh. Her once bodyguard, and now possible current flame, have an unique experience in finding themselves, love, and possibly ...more
