Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase

Suddenly Royal
by Nichole Chase [PB Chase]

Samantha Rousseau is minding her own business, working on her Master’s Degree in Wildlife Biology. When The Duchess of Lilaria and her nephew visit campus, the only care that Sam gives about it is that the flock of people around the Duchess is blocking the doors to the library. However later that day, one of the Duchess’s assistants visits Sam at work and sets up a meeting for Sam and the Duchess. Thinking that the Duchess is going to make a donation to the school’s Ornithology (study of birds, and Sam’s passion) program, Sam meets the Duchess but receives some different news.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book and was not expecting to like it as much as I did. I really enjoyed Samantha as the main character. She was spunky, quick-witted, and down to earth. There were several times that her sarcastic comments made me laugh out loud. After reading several books in a row where the main character annoyed me, Sam was a very refreshing character to read.
