Overview

Captain Quincy is a steady and reliable Royal Marines officer, decorated for gallantry after a mission that nearly killed her and the men under her command. At a crossroads in her career, Quincy reluctantly accepts when her old comrade, Queen Georgina, asks her to join the Royal Protection Command as the Queen Consort’s new protection officer.

Holly Weaver, Royal Dresser and self-confessed man-eater, starts to question her sexuality when she has a girl-crush on famous actor, Story St. John and, then, polo player and friend of George’s, Captain Quincy.

The good-looking captain’s emotionless personality is the opposite of Holly’s exuberant lust for life. When a threat to the Queen Consort emerges, Quincy and Holly clash over the best way to protect her. As the fiery passion they can’t deny begins to melt Quincy’s heart, Holly must decide how much of her own she is willing to risk.

I did not realize this was the 3rd book in a series. And I am happy to report that I was able to read this and enjoy it standalone. Also, I kind of expected this to be set in the past. But enjoyed that this was a modern day story. Captain Quincy is assigned to protect the queen consort after her anger results in almost being court marshaled. She has to work in close proximity to Holly, an enigmatic woman who cannot be ordered around. The two cannot seem to get a long because Quincy is broken and closed off. Holly is annoyed, beyond measure, that she cannot get any emotion out of the gorgeous butch Captain. The more time spent on the royal tour means the two will be forced to get closer. Holly decides that she is going to do what it takes to become Quincy's friend to help her open up. I really liked this story and the characters.Holly especially. She was so fun and headstrong. Never backed down from what she wanted. The conflict between the two main characters kept this interesting and exciting. I recommend. I received an ARC through Netgalley from Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.

I was excited to read the 3rd installment of Jenny Frame's popular "A Royal Romance" series, "Royal Court." The story was especially intriguing to me because Holly Weaver, one of Bea's (Queen Consort) besties and her Royal Dresser, finally had her story told! I always wondered what her story was going to be about (obviously hoping, at that time, that Frame would write it! Little did I know....) since her introduction in Book #1, "A Royal Romance." I was intrigued by her fiery character and always wondered if she was truly what she professed to be - a hetero man-eater. You know, a person who feels the need to clarify their sexuality or self-profess their sexual lifestyle for everyone to hear, always gives me this "a lady doth protest too much" feeling, if you catch me drift! So, I put Holly in that "slippery slope" category since Book 1 especially when Captain Quincy was briefly mentioned in Book 2, "Royal Rebel," and Holly's "Adonis" remark about her in that scene! I had me wishful thinking about their pairing, then, mind! And VOILA, what d'ya know!!! I got me wish!! Holly has her own story to tell! And goodness, did Frame give her a brilliantly crafted story, indeed, matching her with, yes, the "Adonis" she referred to in Book 2, a highly decorated Royal Marine-turned-Queen Consort's Protection Officer, Captain Quincy, no less! YAY!! Wish came true! Imagine me joy! Needless to say, "Royal Court" is now me favourite installment in the series, yet! Yes, because of Frame's brilliant creation and portrayal of the ever-tantalising characters, Quincy and Holly, and their utterly mesmerising journey. The fact that Holly and Quincy were polar opposites in every way possible instantly hooked me in from the start because, hey, it's always the "opposites attract" trope (if written brilliantly) that creates this undeniably intoxicating chemistry that just sizzles with scorching heat, feelings and emotions screaming to get out until they finally explode, innit? And Frame weaved the story superbly, one step, one layer, at the time, to say the least! I was holding me breath the entire time! Which brings me to another trope, a favourite of mine - Quincy and Holly's love story was a delicious slow-burn romance, fanning its flames ever so slowly and deliberately at each juncture of their encounter, turning their initially contentious relationship into a trepidatious friendship, adagio style, before deepening their indisputable attraction toward each other into a level that neither one could deny their desire for each other any longer. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this installment, from start to finish. I absolutely love the "opposites attract" trope because I get to discover the opposing characteristics of either protagonist, and when the author spends equal amount of time delving into both characters' psychology with heart and fervour, the reader then is able to get a fuller picture and understanding of where these characters come from mentally and emotionally as they find their way toward each other. This always makes for self-discovery in the protagonists' part, me reckons, and it makes for a thrilling drama to read and experience! Frame effectively crafted that in Quincy and Holly's characters with aplomb! In other words, "Royal Court" was a thrill to read and I highly recommend it. I also recommend that you read Book 1 & 2 if you haven't already! Absolutely satisfying! I was given an ARC from Netgalley & BSB in return for an honest review.
