Review: "Heart of a Royal" by Hannah Currie

If you like YA romance, Heart of a Royal is a book you need to get your hands on!

Brought to the palace as a newborn, the royal life bestowed upon Mackenna Sparrow was never meant to last forever. With Princess Alina engaged to be married, Mackenna’s presence as companion is no longer required and, like it or not, she must return to the birthright which should have been hers – that of a commoner. But not everyone at the palace wants her gone. When the truths she’s based her life on start crumbling as fast as her future, will she find the courage to trust, both herself and the prince she’s fallen in love with?

Oh my goodness, this book is too cute! Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I loved Kenna and Ben and their developing romance, but even more than that, I enjoyed watching Kenna discover the truth about herself and her world.

I did feel that the world building was a little light; I wasn't quite sure where or when the kingdom of Peverell existed. The kingdom felt a little modern and a little medieval all at the same time, and I couldn't tell if it was supposed to fit in with our world or if it was a fantasy world.

Overall, though, I loved this book! The characters were great (whether I loved them or hated them), the plot was interesting, and the romance was sweet. I would love to make a return trip to Peverell sooner rather than later. 4 stars.

Aussie author Hannah Currie loves God, family, people (in small numbers, let’s not go crazy here!) and writing. She and her husband live with their three adorable kids in sunny Queensland, where it really is beautiful one day and perfect the next. Except, maybe, during heatwaves. They’re not so fun. She loves to connect with readers at
