A Right Royal Affair
by Helen Juliet (Author) and Kieran Flitton (Narrator)
Theo Glass used to believe that love was just a fairy tale. Orphaned and disowned by his homophobic step-family, he and his grandma make ends meet as best they can. But when his grandma’s tireless charity work is honoured, Theo makes sure he spends his last pennies to get her to the palace, hosted by none other than the gorgeous Prince James himself.
James is sixth in line to the throne of England and a disappointment to just about everyone. He never felt at home at school, on the rugby pitch, or even in the army. Being royalty means he’s been forced to keep a lid on his bisexuality. But when he meets Theo at the honours ceremony, he knows he’s in serious trouble.
Needing to find purpose, James convinces Theo to use his charity event savvy to throw a fundraiser ball in a secluded castle. All James has to do is behave himself around the sassy twink. But soon the chemistry between them is too strong to resist.
Their lives are too different and there’s no chance James can come out as the first prince of England with a boyfriend. But James knows if he doesn’t show Theo how much he means to him, he’ll lose him forever. Can love conquer all? Or is that something just for fairy tales?
A Right Royal Affair is a steamy, standalone MM romance novel featuring a pack of unruly royal terriers, romantic balls, feisty swans, a wicked step-father and a guaranteed HEA with absolutely no cliffhanger.

MMy Thoughts and Review:
The Unlucky Duckling
Theo lives with his Nan and has since he was very young. Theo’s Nan is a pillar in their community always lending a helping hand. The pair haven’t much money of their own, but what they do have they share with those who lack, even more than they do. Because of the bright light, Nan is being recognized for her efforts by the Queen of England. Theo, of course, escorts his favorite girl to the ceremony and it is there his life will change forever.
Prince James is sixth in line to the throne of England, and believe it or not, he loves the gatherings where he gets to meet one on one with those who are making a difference in their country. He is excellent at remembering names and faces, and that has always been a benefit to him at functions like the one he is attending. He has no idea he is about to stare future in the eyes as he finds a gorgeous stranger holding one of his family’s corgies in one hand and a priceless vase in the other.
This was sweet and had a lovely Cinderfella vibe without it being too in your Fairytale face about it. It’s a story where the number six is very unlucky for a man who wants to be a regular Joe…er James. Where a castle is a place a young man from Essex never thought Kylie Monogue worshippers would stay, and a pair of male swans are the best-dressed couple for any occasion. It’s a story of compassion, kindness, and love but also about bigotry, small-mindedness, and fear of change and repercussion.
It’s a gentle back and forth, some miscommunication, and angst, with a very well done HEA.
A New to me Narrator, I quite enjoyed.
Now I just need a pair of those converse and all will be well. 👬🌈👬
