Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase-Interview with Crown Prince Alex of Lilaria

We are beyond excited to be able to share with you all the release of Nichole Chase's SUDDENLY ROYAL in paperback! This book is gorgeous and will definitely be one you'll want to add to your shelf!  

Suddenly RoyalSamantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working on a master's degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it's to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed . . . 

 As crown prince of Lilaria, Alex D'Lynsal has had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures in the press have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She's stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone's front-page news. 

While Sam tries to navigate her new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

Today we are thrilled to welcome the crown Prince of Lilaria, Alex D'Lynsal to our blog. But before we being the interview, we need to take a moment of silence to swoon......

Ok, now that we've gotten that out of our system (Sorry Sam), let's get on to the interview.

Meredith:  What is the best perk to being the crown prince of Lilaria?
Alex:  Well, the toys and travel are definitely perks!

Jennifer:   What is on a prince's breakfast menu?
Alex:  Eggs. Any way I can get them. And bacon. You can’t have enough bacon.

Meredith:  Share a little known fact about Lilaria.
Alex:  Lilaria was able to fend off the Romans for almost twenty years.

Jennifer:   First word that comes to mind when you think of the first time you saw Sam.
ALex:  Intrigued.

Meredith:  If you could declare a new Lilarian holiday, what would it be and how would it be celebrated?
Alex:  Oooh. Now that is an interesting question. Hm. Maybe a holiday to celebrate nature. Everyone can celebrate by picking up litter. Okay. That doesn’t sound like fun. What about cleaning up and then partying? That would work for me. Plant trees have a good time. Or is that Arbor day?

Jennifer:  Favorite musician.
Alex:  Right now I’m really enjoying Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Meredith:  If for one day you could be a regular guy that no one knows, what would you do?
Alex:  Something—anything with animals. I’d clean stables if it meant I could work with animals and spend time outside.

Jennifer:  What was it about Sam that drew you to her?
Alex:  She was so direct. It was refreshing. Not to mention, she’s gorgeous and funny.

Meredith:   What does a prince do in his free time?
Alex:   If I told you that, Samantha would be upset. *winks*
Meredith:  Shoot. Well, I had to try. 
Jennifer:  So much for the stalking idea. I mean, so much for casually bumping into you out somewhere.
Meredith:  Yup, kind of puts a damper on the weekend plans. *sigh*

Meredith:   If a movie was made about your life, who would you want to play you?
Alex:   I’ve heard people say that I resemble Chris Hemsworth and he seems like a decent fellow, so, I guess he would work.

Thanks so much for being here with us today Alex. Please give Sam our best! 
Meredith:  Is he gone?
Jennifer:  Yes.
Meredith:  Holy hotness. I think I left my jaw on the floor.
Jennifer:  Is that what that was? 
Meredith:  Please, the line of drool from your lip could lead us to a house made of candy.
Jennifer:  Whatever.
Meredith:  A PRINCE was just here. A HOT PRINCE.
Jennifer:  *collapses on floor*

Author PhotoNichole Chase is a daydreamer. No, really, just ask any of the math teachers that had the misfortune of seeing her name appear on their class schedule. For years she has had story lines and characters begging for attention, but she resolutely pushed them aside to focus on more normal (read, boring) jobs. Well, no longer! She is currently heeding the voices in her head and frantically writing their stories. Ms. Chase is the author of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy, Flukes, and Suddenly Royal (including several short stories). Nichole resides in South Georgia with her husband, energetic daughter, dog, tortoise, and two cats. When not devouring novels by the dozens, you may find her writing, painting, crafting, or chasing her daughter around the house while making monster noises.

A true duchess (or duke!) would never be caught without a tiara on! With news of a secret duchess in town, the paparazzi are everywhere, waiting to catch unsuspecting readers sans royal accessories. So grab your sparkly head gear, head to your nearest bookstore to pick up a copy of SUDDENLY ROYAL by Nichole Chase, and get snapped in style!
