Richard
When I was a prince, I was used to getting whatever I wanted. As the new King, I can simply demand it.

With Melody at my side I was on top of the world. There was little more a man could desire. Nothing could bring me down, especially not when I was on top of her.

Then reality struck. The king has great power, but with it a great responsibility. Every choice I made was scrutinized by my subjects and even more so by the countries we bordered with. Longtime alliances that my father worked so hard to maintain were threatening to slip through my fingers.

All eyes were on me... would I be able to fill my father’s shoes and maintain prosperity in Illium? Would Melody stay by my side through the good times and the bad?

Melody
I pictured a fairytale life when I married the man of my dreams and the King of our people. We would sail the oceans; we’d see the world. People would adore us as we brought wealth and prosperity to Illium.

Apparently, all that was nothing more than a fantasy.

Rick and I had barely seen each other since the wedding. We didn’t even get a honeymoon. The stress was weighing on him and I felt powerless to help.

Worse yet, we were under pressure to produce an heir. Rick’s mother was breathing threats down my neck that there was no place for me in Rick’s life if I couldn’t get pregnant. The entire country was counting on us... on me to have his baby.

But, the tests kept coming back negative. I love him and I can’t lose him, what am I going to do if I can’t bear his child?

"We kissed until we ran out of breath."

by Indie Editor Nancy

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I enjoyed spending some more quality time with Richard and Melody; this book is the third in the series as they are settling into married life. The demands are great for the new couple to procreate and keep the throne on their side of the family. The writing was good, the author is very descriptive and paints a colourful picture of the palace and the love the king and queen share.
"My exquisite flower was sitting in her favorite space at the corner of the Ladies Garden, looking as gorgeous as ever. I didn't think I could love her more, but every day proved me wrong."
"His sparkling eyes betrayed his amusement but he complied."
"We were both completely naked and fueled by lust. It took exactly two seconds for us to launch ourselves at each other and embrace."

Royal Duty: The Prince's Choice Series, Book Three

by TiffanyS.

This book picks up where book two left off. Melody and Rick are entering a new phase of their life. They are trying to figure out how to balance a new marriage and perform their royal duties. Rick's royal duty is to take over being king and convincing other countries to have trust in him. Melody's royal duty is to produce an heir, and to do so (like yesterday). I liked seeing how they overcame their struggles, communicated with and supported each other. Their marriage is very strong.

The only thing that I got annoyed with was the pressure on Melody to get pregnant. Many times I was left wondering if any of them had ever taken sex ed. Did they not understand that a test is not going to show pregnant the day after one has sex? I know the Queen Mother was grieving but I didn't like that she was so cold towards Melody. She had obviously gotten pregnant before. Did she forget how long it can take to get pregnant and/or a test to show positive? That was just a small annoyance for me and probably stems more from me being a health educator than anything. Overall, I love this series and hope we get at least one more book!

I really enjoyed reading Royal Duty. I can't wait to read Royal Playboy & Royal Scandal, so I can Melody & Richard from the beginning. I couldn't put the book down I finished it in 2 days. Loved it.

Sweet Ending to the Series

by Anonymous

Married life isn't what Richard or Melody expected. Richard is grappling with the stress and responsibilities of being a king. Melody is feeling pressure to produce a heir. They deal with their ups and downs, but the readers get the HEA they were waiting for. A good conclusion to the series.

This installment is rather slice of life. Our newlyweds are getting used to being the king and queen while trying to have a heir.I liked this one.they actually communicated,well when they can see each other, presented an united front. It was sweet and sexy as usual.

Royal Duty

by Barbara Jacobs

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. What a great story. Prince Richard became King after his father's death. Melody became Queen and on the fast track to produce an heir. With all the changes and the frustration that comes with those changes all was not well with the happy couple. But that's all I'm going to say you need to get the book and enjoy it like I did, better yet get the series you'll be glad you did

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. Rick and Melody are now King and Queen. This is a big adjustment. These two are terrific characters. They are still as hot as ever. Lots of fun and full of hot sex. I received this as an ARC and voluntarily reviewed it.

Sweet slice of royal marriage

by Valeen

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I really like Royal Duty. Richard and Melody are newlyweds but see each other so little because he's now the King and taking over all the royal duties. It's the story all us married people experience, but with the fairytale touches that you'd expect of a royal story. Richard and Rachel are surprisingly realistic and their connection is strong, regardless of whether they see each other often or not.

I really felt for Melody, yes, all eyes were on Richard as he was the King, but she was under even more pressure to produce a royal heir. She was scrutinized constantly, especially by her new mother-in-law. Thank God she had Richard for some kind of support, and thank God their love was strong enough to withstand all the outside pressures they were facing.

Royal Duty - a true love story

by DiTrinc

I loved this story from the moment that I started reading it, I couldn't stop, the writer drew me in and the coonection that Richard and Melody had throughout the story was unbreakable, against all all they made time for each other and the duties that Richard had taken upon as king after the death of his father, against all all they always knew they had each other and their love and romance blossomed throughout.

I have to say book number three was just as good as the first two in this series. Richard and Melody are struggling through their duties as a couple and as leaders. Watching them grow together has been great. I love when I feel like I know the characters in a book.
