Publisher's Summary

Making it up the aisle was the easy part: Rebecca "Bex" Porter must survive her own scandals and adjust to royal British life in this "timely and positively delicious" follow-up to The Royal We that's "just as fun, charming, and delightful as the first" (Taylor Jenkins Reid).

After a scandalous secret turns their fairy-tale wedding into a nightmare, Rebecca "Bex" Porter and her husband, Prince Nicholas, are in self-imposed exile. The public is angry. The queen is even angrier. And the press is salivating. Cutting themselves off from friends and family and escaping the world's judgmental eyes feels like the best way to protect their fragile, all-consuming romance.

But when a crisis forces the new duke and duchess back to London, the Band-Aid they'd placed over their problems starts to peel at the edges. Now, as old family secrets and new ones threaten to derail her new royal life, Bex has to face the emotional wreckage she and Nick left behind: with the queen, with the world, and with Nick's brother, Freddie, whose sins may not be so easily forgotten - nor forgiven.

What the critics say

"Royal watchers and tabloid devotees will devour this juicy look behind the gilded curtain of palace life." (Kirkus)

"The Fug Girls have done it again! The Heir Affair is the perfect sequel to The Royal We. It is just as fun, charming, and delightful as the first - now with even more complexity and wisdom as we grow to know and love these characters even more. A timely and positively delicious story. I loved it." (Taylor Jenkins Reid, best-selling author of Daisy Jones & the Six)

ok

Like the first book I enjoyed it until around the 2/3 mark where it starts to go unneccesarily weird. Still worth the finish and read.

Guilty Pleasure

The perfect listen when you need a fun and easy summer escape. Many favorite characters from the first book make a reappearance and the narrator is fantastic.

Amazing sequel!!

Sometimes sequels don’t stand up to the first in a series, but this one is FANTASTIC!! The authors may have even outdone themselves this time with the plot twists and countless emotional moments. I listened on Audible and was on the edge of my seat countless times! Christine’s performance truly brought the book to life. I can not recommend Heather & Jessica’s series enough!!

Very entertaining and equally good the the first in the series. I smiled the entire time. Plus the narrator was superb.

Outstanding

Characters well developed and the kind you will miss when the book ends. You need to read this book now and engage in a great story that is similar to a regular family even though they are royal. Christina Lankin you are brilliant. Well crafted story that kept me questioning and agonizing - what would I do? Thank you!

Pretty good, tho a bit bloated story-wise

I enjoyed the book, but thought it could have benefitted from a stronger editorial hand. Knowing the authors history as I do, one would expect no small amount of snark and still this came layered on a bit too heavy for my tastes. A mostly fun peek into an imagining of how royal families snipe and sneak around behind the curtains.

Such a fun book!

I just finished this book and thoroughly enjoyed it - almost as much as the first one. It’s a fun, light story with heart. The characters are so much fun and the narrator is fabulous!
