ROYALLY LOST by Angie Stanton (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please give a warm welcome to author Angie Stanton, joining us with her recent release of ROYALLY LOST!

Writing Royally Lost, my fascination with royalty.

I have a mild fascination with royalty. I’ve watched the elaborate Windsor Royal weddings, read plenty of romance novels with a handsome prince, and loved all the royal-themed chick flicks like Princess Diaries and The Prince and Me. 

So when I found out I was taking a river cruise on the Danube in Europe, my mind started clicking with ideas of what it would be like for a teenage girl to take that trip and her odds of meeting a royal prince. But what intrigued me most is what if the prince wasn’t happy? What if he’d had enough of the palace and his parents’ expectations that he took off? Was on the Run? And that is where my ideas sparked for Royally Lost. 

One fun aspect of writing the story, was figuring out how this unsuspecting American girl would keep running into this incognito prince. Once on the trip, my mind was an explosion of ideas and scenarios. Becca and Nikolai meet on the streets of Venice, sneak kisses in an ancient abbey, take off on his motorbike for adventures, and run into a life changing scuffle on the streets of Prague.

Royally Lost is packed with romance, humor and heartache as these two very different teenagers find each other, fall in love, and navigate their uncertain futures.

Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog today. I hope everyone enjoys reading Royally Lost as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Dragged on a family trip to Europe’s ancient cities, Becca wants nothing more than to go home. Trapped with her emotionally distant father, over-eager stepmother, and a brother who only wants to hook up with European hotties, Becca is miserable. That is until she meets Nikolai, a guy as mysterious as he is handsome. And she unknowingly finds herself with a runaway prince.
Nikolai has everything a guy could ask for-he's crown prince, heir to the throne, and girls adore him. But the one thing he doesn't freedom. Staging a coup, he flees his kingdom and goes undercover on his own European tour.
When Nikolai and Becca meet, it’s their differences that draw them together. Sparks fly as they share a whirlwind of adventures, all the while dodging his royal guard. But Becca's family vacation ends in a matter of days. Will Nikolai and Becca be forced to say goodbye forever, will his destiny catch up to him, or will they change history forever?
