Rhodie and Arron James travel to the unveiled for her research. They fall in love, they fight. They have to figure themselves first, to be able to function well together. Both have some deep unresolved issues that are not easy to face.

This is a lovely book like all of the books in the borderline chronicles. At first, I wasn't sure if I would like this book as much as I've liked the previous books, but when Arron and Rhodie get into the unveiled things turn more interesting. I also really like t

Dr. Broward is elegant, poised, controlled, professional. She can seem intimidating and cold, but her family and the few friends who have gotten past the exterior know there is far more to her. As this book is about her, it can take a little to get into, but stick with it - this story has all the adventure, humor, swoony interaction, complicated relationships and more!

West again does an exceptional job dealing with serious topics in a sensitive and realistic manner. Somehow she manages to neatl

The Semi-Royal is the fourth book in the Borderline Chronicles series. I have read 2 others and this one didn’t disappoint.
We follow Princess Rhododendron (Rhodie), or Dr. Broward as she’s know around most people and Arron James as they set out on a science expedition. She is in charge and he is the extra protection she doesn’t want tagging along. Or does she secretly really need him? Rhodie and Arron have slowly been building their relationship after he was hurt in a previous book. She’s a prin

The Semi-Royal tells the story of the prim and proper Rho learning to let go and let herself love her secret best friend, Arron. As they go on a magical research expedition, they find themselves romancing each other out of sight of everyone else until the one person who they never expected shows up. With explosions and the prodigal brother, Arron and Rho must determine if their friendship and love is worth fighting for.

Fiona West has written a beautiful romance with the perfect amount of tension

I really enjoyed this book!

I received a copy of this book from StoryOrigin, and I’m glad to leave a review. This is the 4th book in a series, and I am sure I missed some nuances from previous books, but this one read well as a stand-alone.
This is a love story between Princess Rhododendron (Rhodie) and one of her guards, Lt. James, who is also her brother’s best friend. Rhodie (also Dr Broward) is a dedicated scientist, and part of the book involves a research expedition. Everyone knows this cou

This book had a bit of everything. Love, fighting, mystery, magic, and heartbreak all throughout the book. James and Rhodie had loved each other for ever without being able to tell each other because she was a princess. When they finally get their act together will it be to late or will they be became a Happily Ever After?

I was given an advance copy of this book for an honest review. This is my first book by Fiona West. Fantasy, magic, adventure, humor & romance...this book has it all. I couldn’t put the book down. The storyline was fantastic. I highly recommend this book, series & author. I look forward to reading many more books by Fiona West.

More! More! More!

I loved Rhodie's story! It hit on many points that women are dealing with and the pressures of society. Great job!

Thank you to the author for the ARC. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is the 4th book in the series so some things are lost just jumping in like this. I know they could be standalones, but I think they could be much better when they are read in order.

Rhodie is traveling to learn more about the magic going on outside of the place she lives, and she is accompanied by Arron James. He was shot, and she had visited him. She is a doctor and princess. He is an army lieutenant. They are going
