Book Description:

Book 1: Command Me
When he kissed me, I was shocked. He was a stranger and still so familiar. It wasn't until I woke up to my picture splashed on the cover of tabloids that I realized I knew who he was. 

Prince Alexander of Cambridge. 

Royal bad boy. 

Exiled heir to the throne. 

He isn't Prince Charming. He's controlling. He's demanding. He's dangerous. And I can't say no to him.

We both have secrets—secrets that could tear us apart or drive us closer together—and as the paparazzi exposes each one, I have to decide just how far I'm willing to go for King and Country. 
Book 2: Conquer Me
Alexander had the world at his feet and me on my knees until secrets tore us apart. 
I should stay away from him. I should run. But I'm addicted to the pleasure and the pain. 
He warned me about his dark side...about his past. But I have a dark side, too. Together we'll conquer our demons...if we don't destroy each other first. 
Love doesn't always conquer all, but it can Conquer Me.
Book 3: Crown Me
As the world tried to tear us apart, Alexander fought for me, claiming me as his own. I belong to him—body, heart, and soul. I found strength in his dominance. In his control. In his love. 

Still I could always feel it: the darkness creeping toward our joy, threatening to overcome us. But I never imagined it would end like this. I thought I knew what marrying Alexander meant to my life. To my independence. To us. 

I was wrong. 

Ripped apart by tragedy, fighting for love, Clara and Alexander face their darkest hour in the 
stunning conclusion to their saga…

Vikki’s Musings

Wow, just wow! I thoroughly enjoyed the Royals Saga, all three books. I read and purchased each separately, so I could buy the Audible version for $1.99. Plus when I discovered this series, I only downloaded Command Me, since it was free. Geneva Lee was an unknown author for me as well. This is a series that builds steam as the story unfolds in each book. I’m going to dispense with my synopsis and focus on why I LOVED this series!

At one point, during Command Me, I didn’t think I would be interested in reading the rest of the books. However by the end of the first one, I was hooked. For me, each book gets better. By Crown Me, I could not read fast enough!

Since this series involves a fictitious Prince of Wales, I wasn’t completely sold, since while I love fiction, I prefer the story line to be factual, not fantasy. Of course, by the end of the first book that no longer mattered to me. These books are compelling to say the least. The characters are complex and the pacing is fantastic, keeping me captivated, especially Conquer Me and Crown Me.

I fell in love with Clara right away. I could really identify with her character immediately and as her story line unfolds, that connection only became stronger. I had a harder time with Alexander, even though his character fascinated me it took me a while to warm up to him. I’m glad I stuck with him because, by the end, I was madly in love with him.

I did listen to the audio versions as well as reading. Fran Jewel gives a sparkling performance in this series from the first book to the last. She does an outstanding job with the male voices in particular. That is not always the case. Roger Frisk reads Alexander’s point of view in the second and third book, and I also enjoyed his performance. He reads with a lot of emotion, but I did not care for his voice when reading Clara’s dialogue.

I now plan to read the rest of the books in this series, since I love Belle’s character and feel she got a raw deal from her love interest, never liked him from the first. If you enjoy erotic romance with a riveting story, then you will love these books. Happy reading!
