Publisher's Summary

Georgina, Princess of Wales, has always known her destiny, but she never expected duty to call so soon. When her father dies suddenly, she is called back from her Royal Navy post to assume the crown. While the people acclaim their new Queen, Great Britain's first openly gay monarch, all George feels is the isolation of her station.
Beatrice Elliot's staunch anti-monarchist views have always been a point of gentle contention with her working class, royalty-loving parents. When Bea, director of a hospice charity, must spend six months working with Queen Georgina, her charity's new patron, sparks fly and passion blooms. But is love enough to bridge the gap between Bethnal Green and Buckingham Palace?

Awesome.... first half

This one has potential--huge potential--to be a classic in the genre. The premise is old, but wonderfully done. The characters are immediately lovable, even the minor ones (although the voice of Georgie is all wrong--the rest of the narration is brilliant). All are fleshed out superbly. The details of royal life are charming and enlightening. I was completely wrapped in this story--right up until THAT point. You will know it when you get there. It just seemed out of character and thrown in for no reason at a point in the story that called for a different tack. I plodded past that, disappointed, but invested enough to see how it would all turn out. I thoroughly enjoyed the overall book, despite some clunky bits here and there, and I would recommend.
