I love Emma Chase’s brand of romance—funny, swoony and full of heart. Coming February 21st is the second installment in the Royally series of standalone love stories. Royally Matched is the story of Prince Henry and his struggles again the responsibilities forced upon him. I can’t wait, and I’m so thrilled to feature Emma on the blog today!
In my sweet and sexy upcoming release, Royally Matched, the irrepressible former spare-heir, Prince Henry, reacts to his stifling new royal responsibilities by signing up for Matched—a Bachelor-esque reality tv dating show. What could go wrong…?
Here’s my list (in no particular order) of today’s real-life hottest bachelors who I would love to see star in a season of Matched!
Chris Evans— Whether he’s suiting up to play Captain America, rooting for his favorite football team, or tweeting Valentine’s Day pics of him and his dog, Chris Evans is the perfect combination of carefree adorableness and sexy charm.
Prince Harry—Although things are looking pretty serious between Harry and Megan Markle (yay!), his great sense of humor, commitment to wildlife conservation and support for soldiers in the Invictus Games would make him a riveting royal contestant.
Michael Fassbender—Charming, handsome, and mesmerizingly talented, watching an experienced and slightly older guy (he’s the same age as I, so I’m allowed to say that) play the dating game would be amazing and oh-so drool-worthy.
Alex Pettyfer—He’s young, hot, British, a model, an actor and now a publisher—it would be wonderful to see what other talents and interests Alex has up his sleeve (or in other places 😉 ). Plus, is it just me or does he remind you of Henry Pembrook too?
Justin Beiber—The paparazzi and social media frenzy would be every bit as entertaining as the reality show itself. Pass the popcorn.
Sam Heughan—When he’s not starring as the swoon-ariffic Scot, Jamie Fraser on Outlander, Sam seems to enjoy the great outdoors—a lot. Biking, hiking, climbing—I don’t climb mountains myself, but I wouldn’t mind watching Sam do it.
Henry Cavill—Who wouldn’t enjoy watching the gorgeous and sweet Man of Steel get wild and crazy in some antics only a reality tv show could think of??
Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark—A single, handsome, intelligent, real-life aristocrat who has an actual career in finance and investments, and lives in New York City. Why isn’t this a tv show already?
Kit Harrignton—Good-looking, smart and funny—watching Kit woo the bevy of beauties vying for his attention would be some fascinating television. And maybe, if we were very lucky—he’d let slip some awesome spoilers for next season’s Game of Thrones!
Charlie Hunnam—Because I miss Jax Teller so much! And though Charlie has a few films slated for release soon, I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to see this amazing actor every week on tv again.
Now that I’ve shown you mine—show me yours! Who would you want to star in a reality tv show like Matched in Royally Matched? Comment below and share this post for a chance to win a signed paperback!
About Royally Matched
Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.
He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday―and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:
Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.
A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.
While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner―with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint―who catches his eye.
The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.
But Rome wasn’t built in a day―and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.
As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all―Love.
