Her Royal Bodyguard by Margaux Fox


Romances involving royalty, particularly princess and bodyguard, are a common trope in lesfic and general romances. Something about the fantasy of a princess (or any famous personality) getting romantically involved with their bodyguard (or personal trainer) seems to appeal to all romantics of the world.

Princess Alexandra is the only progeny of the current King of England and therefore heir to the throne. The Princess is thirty-four, completely scandal-free, beloved of the masses, beautiful, kind and perfect in all ways. For a few years there was a shortlisted ‘beau’ or husband for her but she is not interested in him so she’s given a list of suitors and expected to select one of them in a year. The Princesses’ bodyguard has a riding accident and Sergeant Erin Kennedy is selected as the new bodyguard because she fulfils Alexandra’s two most important criteria: a woman who can ride exceptionally well. As Erin spends time around the Princess she gets a glimpse of the person beneath the polished persona – a person who may be lonely, a vulnerable young lady.

The problem with this book is its superficiality. Princess Alexandra is written fairly well and has at least some layers to make her an interesting but there is absolutely nothing to Erin. In fact, given a day more, we’d even forget the character. There are some good steamy scenes between the two but really, to making the-princess-and-the-commoner-trope work requires a lot more. We would strongly recommend The Princess Affair if this is the gig you’re looking for.

This one is one of those vapid reads which you cannot hate but cannot like either.
