SYNOPSIS

Millie Quint is devastated when she discovers that her sort-of-best friend/sort-of-girlfriend has been kissing someone else. And because Millie cannot stand the thought of confronting her ex every day, she decides to apply for scholarships to boarding schools . . . the farther from Houston the better.

Millie can’t believe her luck when she’s accepted into one of the world’s most exclusive schools, located in the rolling highlands of Scotland. Everything about Scotland is different: the country is misty and green; the school is gorgeous, and the students think Americans are cute.

The only problem: Mille’s roommate Flora is a total princess.

She’s also an actual princess. Of Scotland.

At first, the girls can barely stand each other–Flora is both high-class and high-key–but before Millie knows it, she has another sort-of-best-friend/sort-of-girlfriend. Even though Princess Flora could be a new chapter in her love life, Millie knows the chances of happily ever afters are slim . . . after all, real life isn’t a fairy tale . . . or is it?

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

Going into this book I remembered I had read Royals! And then I remember how much I liked it. And so my hopes were high. I’m not sure if it was the main characters or the storyline (seemed more farfetched than Royals did and that just didn’t work for me) or maybe it was my mood but sadly I didn’t connect with it much so it was just an okay read for me. But here’s why it’ll be a great read for you…

I will say this book was so cute! I And it’s set in a boarding school so some of us already have the “oooo” aura floating around us when we about the fantasy of going to a boarding school. We also have my favourite trope in a rom com “enemies to lovers” or is the term “hate to love”. You get the gist. It’s also set in Scotland! In my top 3 places to visit. And her aunt loves a similar-esque show to Outlander and their commentary about the show made me so happy. It was such a cute addition to add to their relationship.

Grab yourself a copy of Her Royal Highness if you’re a fan of lgbtq stories, boarding schools and Scotland! It’s a wonderful mix I tell you.
