The Royal Treatment by MJ Summers

SUBTITLE: A Crown Jewels Romance, Book 1
AUTHOR: MJ Summers
Releases 23rd May

GENRE: Romance Contemporary Fiction

The Crown Jewels Series is a light romantic comedy, very heavy on
the laughs with a low steam level (but lots of delicious sexual tension
and some swearing). This is a HFN ending with the second and third
books in the series featuring the same couple.

Book 2: The Royal Wedding (Summer 2017)
Book 3: The Royal Delivery (Late Fall 2017)

Enough laughs to satisfy fans of Bridget Jones. Enough sparkly shoes and breathtaking ball gowns for fans of Cinderella…

Twenty-eight- year-old Tessa Sharpe, a.k.a. The Royal Watchdog, hates everything about Prince Arthur. As far as she’s concerned, he’s an arrogant, lazy leech on the kingdom of Avonia. When he shocks the nation by giving her the keys to the castle in an attempt to boost his family’s dismal public approval ratings, Tessa has no choice but to accept and move in for two months. It’s lust at first site, but there’sno way she can give in to her feelings—not if she wants to have acareer or a shred of pride left when her time at the palace ends.

Ultra-private, ultra-hot Crown Prince Arthur has always gotten by on his charm. But that won’t be enough now that the royal family is about to be ousted from power once and for all. When Prince Arthur has to rely on the one woman in the kingdom who hates him most, he must learn that earning the love of a nation means first risking his heart…

Can two natural enemies find their forever in each other’s arms, or will they ruin each other to save themselves?

Prince Arthur:

When we reach the vault room, there are two guards standing at the
door. Normally there is just one, sitting on the inside; but for nights like
tonight, there are a total of six. I nod, and one of them opens the door.

“Good evening, fellows,” I say.

“Good evening, Your Highness.”

Once inside the room, we go through the same routine with the other
four men. I go to the keypad and press the code, then hold my face in front of
the camera for a retina scan. When I look down at Tessa, she actually looks

“A little Bond-esque, no?” I ask.


“Come on, Moneypenny, let’s get you something for that beautiful neck
of yours.” I tug her hand and pull her in with me before she can say no.

She’s already shaking her head, but I hold up one finger. “I can see
those Sharpe family brains of yours going to work on ten different reasons
why you won’t borrow a necklace, but I have already prepared
counterarguments, and since we are now twelve minutes behind schedule,
please allow me. One, they’re already paid for, some of them hundreds of
years ago, so it’s not coming out of anyone’s taxes. Two, like the books in the
library, they’re going to waste in here. Three, for the first time in my life, I
want to share something with someone else—someone who deserves to feel
like a queen, even if she’ll only allow herself that for one measly little evening.
Four, I have this fantasy of seeing you in only the jewels. Maybe the heels
could stay.”

Tessa laughs and her cheeks go pink. “All right. One necklace, but make
it a cheap one.”

I raise one eyebrow. “Define cheap.”

“Less than a kitchen stool.”

“How about less than a car?”


“I said ‘queen.’ Would a queen really wear a sofa around her neck?” I
reach up and run my fingertips along the base of her neck.

“Would she wear a car?”

“Good point.” I lean down and kiss the crook of her neck. “How about
this? You choose whichever one you like the best, and I won’t tell you how
much it’s worth.”

I continue to brush my lips along her skin, then move up to her earlobe. The
other night, I discovered a little spot at the base of her ear that turns her to
putty. After a moment of some careful work, I get what I want. A breathy, little
‘okay’ escapes her lips.

This is the first book in the Crown Jewels series and my first MJ Summers book. I was hooked by the synopsis. I love a good romantic comedy that includes a prince. The Royal Treatment is the story of Tessa Sharpe and Prince Arthur of Avonia. It has everything you want from a book; humor, romance, and some twists and turns that help keep you engaged.

I really liked Tessa. She was down to earth, quirky and hilarious. Oh my gosh I laughed so much. The Shock Jogger scene was the best thing ever. Seriously, hilarious. I could picture everything as if it was happening right in front of me. Tessa is a full time blogger who blogs about how much she dislikes the royal family. She believes the Monarch should be abolished. She doesn't hold back either. Let's take a minute to talk about Tessa's family. Ugh. I really didn't like them. At. All. They are rude and have zero appreciation for her. They are all high profile professionals and to them Tessa is just a lowly blogger.

Prince Arthur is trying to save the Monarch and repair his image. He comes up with the perfect solution. Bring in his biggest critic to live at the castle for two months. Allow Tessa to see all the in's and out's of everything he does on a daily basis. What could go wrong? I liked Prince Arthur. I enjoyed getting to really know him as he opened up.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and flowed beautifully. There were a lot of laughs, sweet moments, and a little bit of steam. I can't wait for the next book in the series to see where Tessa and Arthur go next.

MJ Summers currently resides in Edmonton, Canada, with her husband, three young children, and their goofy dog. When she's not writing romance novels, she loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. MJ also spends a lot more time thinking about doing yoga than actually doing yoga, which is why most of her photos are taken ‘from above’. She also loves shutting down
restaurants with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down,
like calling the health inspector or something. More like just staying
until they turn the lights off.

MJ is a member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as the International Women's Writing Guild.

MJ would love to hear from you! She does her best to respond to all
inquiries and emails personally. If you would like her to attend a book
club meeting via Skype please contact her to book a date.
