Read How to Find a Princess (Runaway Royals, #2) by Alyssa Cole

Makeda Hicks has lost her job and her girlfriend in one fell swoop. The last thing she’s in the mood for is to rehash the story of her grandmother’s infamous summer fling with a runaway prince from Ibarania, or the investigator from the World Federation of Monarchies tasked with searching for Ibarania’s missing heir.

Yet when Beznaria Chetchevaliere crashes into her life, the sleek and sexy investigator exudes exactly the kind of chaos that organized and efficient Makeda finds irresistible, even if Bez is determined to drag her into a world of royal duty Makeda wants nothing to do with.

I had been really looking forward to this after loving Bez in the previous book in the series, but unfortunately was disappointed. It felt insubstantial, rushed, especially the ending. They spent most of the book on a boat, which I have not great associations with so was a little offputting. Apparently it’s an Anastasia re-imagining which I didn’t pick up on while reading.

The story behind the cover photo is fun, since it was taken during the pandemic – they found two besties who were in a bubble together who were willing to pose.
