Product Description

In this eagerly anticipated companion novel to Royal Target and Royal Secrets, readers are invited back to the shimmering Mediterranean paradise of Meridia, where two royal weddings in a year are more than stressful—they're deadly...

Lovely Meridian native Noelle Saldera years for adventure, but as the daughter of palace servants, working at Prince Stefano's royal wedding may be as exciting as her life will get. But her options change drastically when she finds herself in the unlikely position of diffusing a bomb at the ceremony and being enlisted as the newest member of Meridian Intelligence—another wedding is in the works, and there can be no more close calls when Prince Stefano's brother, Garrett, walks down the aisle.

The bombing attempt at the first royal wedding leaves few clues as to the assailant's identity. Desperate for answers, Meridian officials enlist CIA agent Jeremy Rogers to prevent a repeat occurrence at the upcoming nuptials. The beauty of the plan: the bride is Jeremy's sister, so his cover is foolproof. What no one could anticipate is the instant connection between Jeremy and Noelle. Now, with their hearts on the line, the pair must work together to stop a seemingly unstoppable enemy before time runs out.

The acti12728296on and excitement picks up from Abramson's two earlier "Royal" novels. Although there is enough information within the book's cover to be read as a "stand alone", the reader will feel slightly confused, at times, if he/she has not read the prior novels. I
4581983missed the 2nd "Royal" Novel and felt confused at time...I was thankful I had read the first one.
The wedding of the first Prince is about to tale place. With extensive security, it still had major complications. Not wanting the younger Prince's Wedding to suffer any more problems, the King and U.S. CIA Director decided to increase security even further without public knowledge.
Jeremy Rogers had completed his training with the CIA and was fulfilling a temporary job in Washington D.C. That worked out well because his sister, Mary, lived there. A girl from the King's Court was temporarily staying with her until further orders. Those orders arrived by courier..Jeremy. She was to return to the castle to help with the wedding.
It was decided, since Janessa...soon to be the new Princess...had a brother in the CIA he could live within the castle as her guest and work undercover without any suspicion aroused.
The intertwining situations lead to a number of unexpected twists which captures the reader's interest throughout the book.
Inside these pages, there is clean fun, humor, frustration, intrigue, suspense, action, espionage, romance, and mystery. Written with the LDS audience in mind, others will be certain to enjoy it as well.
I feel the confusion on my part was due to not reading the second book so I feel I must offer a Five Stars rating on this book.

Great Easy Read

This book has romance, action and a little bit of mystery in trying to figure out who is behind the bombing attempts. It was good to be able to read a good clean adventurous romance. Those are not always easy to find. Great book to read if you get a chance to kick back and relax.

Clean, contemporary, romantic suspense!

Meridia is going to have two royal weddings within a few months of each other. Noelle is brought in to help with wedding plans and is able to help prevent a bombing during the middle of the first ceremony. She is asked to stay on to help with the next wedding. Janessa is the bride in the second wedding. Her brother Jeremy is CIA so is asked to go over early to help as well. He has a cover job since only a few people can know what his true purpose is. He hits it off with Noelle but they are both keeping secrets from each other that can end up coming between them.

I enjoyed getting to know Jeremy and Noelle, as well as Janessa. Noelle is the daughter of palace servants. She's refined and intelligent and very easy to like. Jeremy is a gentleman and falls for Noelle right away. He's not shy in letting her know how he feels and they have some sweet scenes together. Janessa is down to earth and likable. Planning her wedding is stressful but she conducts herself well and doesn't take her frustrations out on other people. There are side characters that add to the story as well. Some of them were easier to like than others. I especially loved the plan they concocted to get rid of their unwelcome guests.

I read the first book in this series many years ago and loved it so was excited to read more! I did enjoy it and thought the author did a great job hiding the villains so it was hard to figure out. I think it works well as a stand alone so if you haven't read the other books, you'll still understand what's going on. This is an author that I expect to not be able to put her books down once I start. I was able to do that a few times with this one. However, it's still a great book and you will especially want to read it if you've read the other two books in the series. This is a book I would recommend to those who enjoy clean, contemporary, romantic suspense, with talk of religion (nothing preachy) and royalty!

Enjoyable!

Abramson has written an enjoyable, romantic suspense novel that continues the adventures from Royal Target and Royal Secrets. While I have not read the previous two books, this third novel gives enough background that I didn't feel at all lost. I found Jeremy and Noelle to both be likeable, sympathetic characters. I have no desire to be a spy, I couldn't live with all the secrets, it was interesting to see how Jeremy and Noelle dealt with the difficulty of each having to hide what their real jobs entail. And then something rather surprising happens that made me wonder what real CIA policies are on relationships. Any the intrigue surrounding the marriages of the two princes was interesting to read as well as all the security precautions taken. It made me glad not to be royalty. With plenty of action as well as romance, Royal Brides makes for a clean and entertaining read.

Great romantic suspense!

There are several different character stories that are followed in Royal Brides. Janessa, whom we met in Book 1, is finally ready to marry her prince, but a security scare at her brother-in-law's wedding puts everyone on edge and security is tighter than ever. Her brother, Jeremy, is called in to help, and love might be in the cards for him, too. Noelle is an employee of the castle and has a unique position between both worlds, but there's a lot at stake.

I have an obsession with royalty and would love to be a princess myself...I think. There are definitely aspects that would be hard to deal with, especially for someone who is a commoner, such as Janessa. I love how down-to-earth this royal family is. I loved the connections between the different characters, but the relationships lacked a little emotion--I wanted more.

I've followed this series from the beginning and have enjoyed it so much. This author does a great job in creating a suspense with villains who are very hard to discover. I love guessing throughout the book and being fed bits of clues along the way. The pacing is a little slower in this story, but the way things all come together is very fulfilling.

Content: some violence (nothing too graphic); moments of peril; mild romance (kissing); references to religion, specific to the LDS church (not preachy). Clean!

Mild Romantic Suspense
By , Submitted on 2016-04-20

3.5 stars
This is the third book in this series although each book can stand alone. Because it is part of a series, we see familiar characters from previous books and the story means more, I think, when you have read what comes first.

Royal Brides is a romantic suspense in the mildest of forms. I was interested in the story and the characters the whole time. I didn't have the "bad guys" completely figured out so that was awesome. It meant I was guessing the whole time.

For me, this book lacked a bit of passion and intensity. I didn't feel as much emotion or connection to the characters as I would have liked but this was still a good story and I enjoyed reading it.

Content: Clean, some mild violence. This is an LDS fiction book and there is some mention of things specific to the LDS religion although nothing preachy.

Loved this book full of adventure, love, suspense, kissing and mystery!

Traci Hunter Abramson is one of my very favorite clean suspense authors! I love the way she's able to suck me into the story so well that I find myself a little disoriented when I finish reading.

I loved this book! I loved Noelle, I almost felt as though I knew her and she just lives down the street or something. I loved the way she's a strong young woman trying to do her best and help her country in any way she's asked.

I liked Jeremy too. I thought that it was fun that Jeremy and Noelle met each other before they moved (or moved back in Noelle's case) to Meridia and I really loved watching them fall in love with each other.

The plot of this book sucked me in from the very beginning. I loved the way that I thought the bad guy was one person and it ended up being so far from the truth that it was almost comical.

This book is a companion book to Royal Target and Royal Secrets, but don't worry if you haven't read those, you won't have any problem getting into the story.

This great book has it all, adventure, love, suspense, kissing, mystery and did I mention that it's completely clean?! Make sure to pick up this great book!
