Fairly Royal by Grace Grahme 💕 Fun Facts, FREE eBook, Freebie Offer and $15 Gift Card Giveaway 💕(Contemporary Romance)



Can a ruse of a royal relationship result in a real romance?

Can a ruse of a royal relationship result in a real romance?

Philip has a problem.

Namely, his relationship to the throne.

Well, that and paparazzi hounding him, plus family obligations on steroids.

Years ago, the notoriously private Earl of Arburne and Glasgow’s #1 most eligible bachelor decided relationships were impossible with his unique pressures.

So he avoids anything serious. Hell, he avoids dating at all.

When he lands in yet another tabloid headline, he has the brilliant (or brilliantly stupid) idea to give the tabloids what they want.

A romance.

No one needs to know it’s fake.

But when he enlists beautiful, bold, and outspoken Anna McDonnell, his best friend’s little sister, he finds himself with a whole new set of troubles.

Anna’s rules for their ruse make their arrangement feel far from pretend. Counterfeit feels more and more like something authentic.

And in the realm of royalty and public scrutiny, anything real and pure can’t survive.

Philip has a problem.

Will this liason be a love-match or will their fling fall flat?

Fairly Royal is the page-turning third book in The Fair Series of contemporary billionaire romances. If you like bold heroines, billionaire heroes, and plenty of steam, then you’ll adore Grace Grahme’s royal romance.

It's set in 1999, so you won't be seeing selfies or lots of cell phones. The phones they use are the beloved Nokias that were impossible to kill and the texting they do is rudimentary at best. (remember using the phone's keypad to text? To text "cat" you'd press the 111-1-8) When my characters are texting, there are no capital letters, no punctuation, and messages are short.

 

You'll learn a fair amount of Scottish slang. And just in case you can't decipher the meaning from the surrounding dialogue, never fear, there's a glossary. You'll learn what a tadger, a numptie, and being blootered is- my editor is English and we went round and round on the slang. She says Scots don't talk like that, but the Scot friends I've made over the last 18 months, truly do. (don't worry, there's not THAT much slang)

 

The places in my book are real! Except for the estate itself- but the opera, the shopping street, the hotels, all real. Google Maps with street view is an author's dream for helping with descriptions!

 

The dresses in my book are real too- they're all based on dresses and gowns from Vivian Westwood, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen. I send out the pictures of them sometimes in my newsletter and have added them to a pinterest board.

 

My male lead is the character with the largest growth arc- and I loved that as my first two books had the women growing more.

 

It's a slow-burn, but there are definitely some steamy scenes leading up to my couple finally ending up 'tangled in the sheets'.



“You’re freaking me out, Phillip. Do you need a kidney or something?”


He chuckled but didn’t look amused. “Nothing quite so grave.” He took a sip of the whisky and cleared his throat. “Have you seen the paper today?”


“The paper?” she asked as he pulled a newspaper from his jacket. “You read The Daily Gazette?”


“Not by choice. I’d rather eat rats.” He tapped a picture in the corner.


“A new lady for the lord? Who writes this crap?” She flipped to the story and skimmed it. The pictures were good. She looked great. “Okay, so we were in the paper. Is this a big deal? They write about you all the time.”


“I apologize for you being a subject of speculation. Nobody should have unwanted attention thrust on them. I’m a very private man, Anna, mostly out of necessity to avoid this kind of thing. But my reluctance to give them coverage makes them prone to making up stories about me.”


“Aye. Like when you took Janet to the Charity Awards. The papers had a field day when she went to the event with you, but left with my brother.”


“Right. Classic example. There’s a lot of pressure on me to settle down, especially from my family. But I don’t want to get married and expose a wife to the structured life I lead and the restrictions due to my title.”


Anna nodded. Janet said last night how Phillip resented his place in the peerage. That still didn’t explain why he was here.


“Too much bowing and scraping?” she joked.


 “Something like that.”


“Ya ken that the Estate is always open if you need to get away, right? We don’t care about your title.”


“You don’t care much about the peerage. You’re bolder than anyone I know because of your disregard for the politics that come with Society.”


“Och, dinnae remind me. Robbie’s harping at me to watch my tongue, given all the marketing he expects me to do.”


“It’s why I’m here, though.” He smiled, and her heart twisted at how it transformed his face. “If I had a girlfriend, the papers would stop caring who I went to what event with and, even better, my family would leave me in peace. You’re strong enough to withstand the scrutiny of the gossip columnists and my mother. You’d be the perfect girlfriend.”


“Are you asking me to be your girlfriend?” 


“In name only. Let’s keep up the charade the paper started. Pretend to be my girlfriend, and it’ll give me some peace.”


A pretend girlfriend. Her heart shriveled. He didn’t want to date her. He just wanted her help. She took a sip of whisky, buying time before answering. He couldn’t know how his words dashed her hope of a romance with him. It wasn’t like he knew she had a crush on him.

She’s bent on keeping things light. He’s ready to go all-in. When she clocks in at his office, will their unspoken tension create havoc… or happiness?

1999. Janet Maxwell is as flirtatious as she is smart. So when a consulting gig takes her across the pond to Scotland, she’s more than willing to complete a merger with the company’s drool-worthy CEO. But when he starts refusing to mix business and pleasure, the free-spirited party girl decides to show him what he’s missing.

While she's on her best behavior at work, Janet dives into the Scottish dating pool after hours. When the boss finally succumbs to their mutual desire, the firmly single woman is shocked when her no-strings-attached philosophy starts crumbling in the face of true love.

Can this clever commitment-phobe overcome her fear and take a chance on happily ever after?


Fair Play is the lighthearted second book in The Fair Series of contemporary romances. If you like bold heroines, rich settings, and playful passion, then you’ll adore Grace Grahme’s Highland fling.

💕 Through July 1 💕
  


What can go wrong during a Samhain party?

As an event coordinator, Anna knows to expect the unexpected and she's certain she's prepared for the first event at the estate, but the weather and a faulty generator threatens the party before it's even started. Luckily she's got friends including the Earl of Arburne who turns out to be more useful than she imagined, even if her imagination is usually working overtime when it comes to him.

James and Margaret are happy to pitch in and work together to save the day. While they usually spend their time at each other's throats, maybe they're more compatible than Margaret has thought- and James certainly can fill out a pair of Wranglers, not that she was paying attention.

Meanwhile Janet is feeling guilty that this Halloween party was her idea in the first place. There's still hope that it will go on as planned and she'll get a chance to show off her fancy dress and even better, see Robert in a traditional kilt.

Kathryn and Ian are back in Scotland on a much needed vacation and Kathryn is happy to play dress up as long as it means Ian joins in on the fun. Never one to turn down a good time, Ian goes all in and ups the stakes by promising Kathryn a surprise- if she can stand the suspense!

Enjoy this companion short story to Fair Play and see how if Samhain is full of tricks or treats for the firsts guests at The Estate at Loch Lomond.

I love reading and I love writing even more- I balance (not always successfully) writing, a career, a family, and a menagerie of rescued dogs, cats, and backyard chickens.

Writing allows me to live vicariously through my characters, escape to worlds and experiences I might never have, and my characters always have a witty response or a perfect retort. (no more 5 hours later having the thought of 'that's what I should have said!')

I'm an avid coffee consumer and adult beverage fan. I love catching up with my friends on Marco Polo and working out at they gym. I avoid cleaning, cardio, and carbs- unless it's an emergency.

I carve out writing time by starting my day at 515am. Which unfortunately means I'm in bed earlier than I'd like. And I still don’t get my to-do list done!
