“American Royals has all the drama, love triangles, and expensive vacations one would expect from a book about royalty. But it is also so much more. In an America where George Washington was crowned king instead of elected president, his descendants still sit on the American throne. Beatrice, first female heir to the throne, has always been the perfect princess. Samantha, her younger, wilder sister, has not. As Beatrice gets closer to the role she has been training for her entire life, she begins to feel stifled by her duties and is then forced to consider an arranged marriage when her father gets ill. As the two princesses’ once-secure lives spin out of control, secrets are revealed and relationships are broken and repaired. It’s a spectacularly engrossing first in a series.”

La princesa Beatrice siempre ha aceptado su deber, pero empieza a acusar la presión a medida que se acerca el día de convertirse en la primera soberana de Estados Unidos. A nadie le importa Samantha, la princesa sustituta, salvo cuando incumple las normas; así que ella tampoco se interesa por nada... De haber nacido una generación antes, Jefferson, el gemelo de Samantha, hubiera sido el primero en la línea sucesoria, pero las nuevas leyes lo relegan al tercer lugar. Casi todo el país adora al príncipe, pero son dos chicas, muy distintas entre sí, quienes compiten por ganarse su corazón. EL PODER. EL DEBER. EL DRAMA. LA CORONA.
A New York Times Bestseller
What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. Crazy Rich Asians meets The Crown. Perfect for fans of Red, White, and Royal Blue and The Royal We!
Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown. Two girls vying for the prince's heart. This is the story of the American royals.
When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American.
As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.
The duty. The intrigue. The Crown. New York Times bestselling author Katharine McGee imagines an alternate version of the modern world, one where the glittering age of monarchies has not yet faded--and where love is still powerful enough to change the course of history.
