<b><b><i>New York Times</i></b><b> Bestseller</b><br /><br />What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. <i>Crazy Rich Asians</i> meets <i>The Crown</i>. Perfect for fans of <i>Red, White, and Royal Blue</i> and <i>The Royal We</i>!</b><br /><br />Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown. <br />Two girls vying for the prince's heart. <br />This is the story of the American royals.<br /><br />When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American.<br /><br />As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture <i>his</i> heart.<br /><br />The duty. The intrigue. The Crown. <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Katharine McGee imagines an alternate version of the modern world, one where the glittering age of monarchies has not yet faded--and where love is still powerful enough to change the course of history.<br /><br />"The lives of the American royal family will hook you in the very first pages and never let go. Relatable, believable, fantastical, aspirational, and completely addictive." --Sara Shepard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars and Perfectionists series

<b>In this regency romance by <i>USA TODAY</i> bestselling and HOLT Medallion winning author Bree Wolf, a cold-hearted lord and self-sufficient woman find themselves tied to one another against their will鈥ut not their hearts.</b><br /><br />England 1808: As far as society is concerned, RICHARD DAVENPORT, VISCOUNT ASHWOOD, doesn鈥檛 have a caring bone in his body. His heart is made of ice, and a single look out of his piercing gray eyes sends people fleeing his presence.<br /><br />Richard couldn鈥檛 care less about the way others look at him. He鈥檚 never been able to read between the lines, understand subtle facial expressions or interpret the many meanings of a smile. But does that mean he doesn鈥檛 care?<br /><br />However, his own issues retreat into the background when his unmarried sister reveals to him that she is with child. Determined to maintain her secret, Richard keeps her locked away from prying eyes. Still, in order to ensure her well-being, he is forced to call upon the one woman who has always been able to melt the ice from his heart.<br /><br />Wishing to follow in her father鈥檚 footsteps, EVELYN PROCTEN has always tended to those in need. Despite social convention, the only future she can see for herself is that of a doctor.<br /><br />However, when Evelyn is called to Farnworth Manor to tend to Miss Davenport and her unborn child, she once again crosses paths with the young woman鈥檚 elder brother. A man who disapproves of her professional ambition. A man who has never looked at her twice. A man she鈥檚 loved from afar for many years.<br /><br />And then a kiss changes everything, sending sparks flying despite the snow surrounding Farnworth Manor. Heat lingers whenever they lie eyes upon one another, and slowly Evelyn comes to see that a tender heart beats in Richard鈥檚 chest, well-hidden behind his ice-cold facade.<br /><br /><hr><br /><br /><i>"To say I loved Oppressed & Empowered is an understatement.

I truly loved everything about this story. "</i>- Zena, Amazon Review<br /><br /><i>"Bree doesn鈥檛 disappoint! She addresses issues without hesitation! Lady physicals, unmarried pregnancy, and more.
