Fairytale - Clean romances

Okay so you know flicking through YA today, specially ones that are historically angled, you'll find there are some rather steamy very intimate scenes there that well don't fit the category 'it happens, but it's a secret because you have a reputation to uphold in society!' So...this list purely for novels that are happy romances or sad, but don't have any steamy scenes in them. Just the building of a romance, sweet or dramatic or tense but clean. SO fairytale retellings, dystopic/utopic novels, contemp anything so long as its clean.

Lynette ~ Escaping Reality – One Book at a Time ~ I have a question for y'all:
I once read a REALLY good princess book, but I can't remember the title, can anyone help me?


So, it was about this girl who lived in an out-of-the-way town, but she knew she was the REAL princess, she knew that the Queen had given her to a Knight to keep safe until she could return to the throne. The current princess, was a fake. One day, this girl realizes she is in danger, so she convinces her guy friend to travel to the castle with her, to claim her rightful spot as Princess.
I can't say anymore because it might give away the story, but, does anyone know what book it is????
Thanks

Oh is it maybe 'the false princess' by Eilis O'Neal?

Lynette ~ Escaping Reality – One Book at a Time ~ Someone else just told me it's The Palace of Mirrors by: Margaret Peterson Haddix.

Thanks for trying to help!

Ally (The Scribbling Sprite) I've already read the first 14 books on this list! I guess I should start with #15 then...


message 5: by Melody (new)

Melody #13 and #60 are the same Book. Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale.


message 6: by Diana (new)

Diana Beware: Sarah J. Maas books,
A Court of Thorns and Roses,
A Court of Mist and fury,
A Court of Frost and Starlight,
A Court of Wings and Ruin
Empire of Storms
feature adult-aged characters and Explicit NC-17 content: Nudity, Drugs consumption, Rape, Physical Abuse, Abusive relationships.

They're also shelved as New adult, Adult and Erotica, but as they're marketed as YA, many people make the wrong assumption that they're Young adult.
