About HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS

I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.

But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.

It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.

Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.

I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.

I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.

He’s just biding his time.

Making me sweat.

His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.

And he wants me.

Excerpt
Eleanor had only
been in Charleston a short time when someone from Boston recognized her and
began to make her life difficult. She was no witch, but as things began to heat
up for her, she felt the only thing she could do was to pack up and head to
another town. Before leaving Charleston, she had been warned to keep her wits
about her by a fellow healer she had met on her travels throughout the
colonies. It was a dangerous world, especially in the middle of a war.
She had a few
shillings to her name that might get her a room at a boarding house for a night
or two. Hopefully by then she could find some work and begin to rebuild her
life once again. Walking along the muddied road of Ellis Square, she finally
came upon a house with a sign that read, “Accepting
boarders. Inquire inside.”
She placed her bags on the ground for a moment
to peer at the sign.
Grasping her bags,
she headed toward the door of the house. As she approached, it swung open,
knocking her to the ground. Almost cursing, she held her tongue and looked
up…and her heart fell into her throat. A young man, one she guessed was close
to her age, stood before her, his hand extended to hers.
“I’m so sorry, my
lady. It never occurred to me that someone might be coming in. Are you okay? I
didn’t hurt you, did I?”
Eleanor grasped his
hand and as the light from the oil lamp hit his face she gasped, her heart
stopping. For a moment the entire world disappeared. He was most handsome and
quite appealing to her, and thoughts of a most pleasant nature crept into her
mind. Sweeping them aside, she got to her feet and attempted to brush the mud
from her dress, now soaked clear through to her undergarments.
“I can manage. Thank
you,” she said as she grabbed for her bags.
“Let me help you
with those, Mrs…”
“Mrs. Eleanor
MacAllister of County Donegal, late of Boston and Charleston. I am a healer.”
“A healer, say you?
I myself hale from County Donegal. Colm O’Donnell at your service, mistress.
And where be your husband?”
“Well, Mr.
O’Donnell, I have not yet wed. Perhaps someday.” Eleanor smiled and gathered
herself as Mr. O’Donnell led her into the inn.
“Aye
now, Mrs. O’Flannery, where be you? I have a young mistress that needs a room.”
Colm’s voice rang throughout the inn and the patrons turned their gaze toward
Eleanor and Colm.
Eleanor attempted to
hide her face, but she could feel their stares on the back of her neck and it
made the hairs stand on end. How she hated being the center of attention. All
she wanted was a room and a place to bed down. She was so very tired and so
very hungry. She had not eaten in days and it was beginning to weigh on her. As
she looked around the room, an older woman appeared at the stairwell and made
her way down the steps. Eleanor observed the weathered lines in the woman’s
face and the frailty of her gait.
“Why, Mr. O’Donnell.
Did you not just leave?” the old woman said as she passed by, patting Colm on
the shoulder.
“Aye, yes, Mrs. O’Flannery,
that I did. But I ran into Mistress MacAllister. She will be in need of a room
and will need the privy.”
Mrs. O’Flannery
walked toward Eleanor, who stood with her head still covered in her cape. “Let
me help you, my child. I will get you upstairs and Mr. O’Donnell will fetch
young Maggie to assist.
“Thank you, Mrs.
O’Flannery.” Eleanor looked around the quaint inn and found an empty chair
along the wall near the door. Colm had already returned from summoning the
young maid and pulled the chair out for her.
“Maggie won’t be
long. So, Mistress Eleanor, what brings you to Savannah?”
Eleanor paused for a
moment; this was the one question she was hoping to avoid although she had
already concocted a story. “Well now, Mr. O’Donnell, that is a most interesting
story and one I fear should be made once I have a clearer head about me.”
“Ah, yes. I am quite
sure you are exhausted from your travels. Perhaps tomorrow we may sit and
talk,” Colm replied.
“Aye, yes, perhaps.”
“MacAllister, you
say? Seems to me my father knew some MacAllisters. What part of County Donegal
did you say you hailed from?”
“I didn’t,” Eleanor
replied with a flirtatious grin. “Perhaps we will discuss that tomorrow.” It
was then that a young woman scampered down the stairs, almost shaking the very
foundation of the inn. Eleanor surmised she was not more than her own age of
eighteen.
“Must you make a
ruckus every time you come downstairs, Maggie?” Mrs. O’Flannery protested.
“No, Mistress. I
will try to remember to be more courteous.” 
“You would do well
to remember that, my dear. Now hurry and help Mistress Eleanor, and Mr.
O’Donnell will be up with her bags. Get her a warm bath and help her prepare
for bed. Take her to the room next to mine.”

This is a story of unspoken words and how loud they can be.

Unspoken Words, “a wonderful story of first love, first heartbreak” from K.M. Golland is available now!

Unspoken Words - E-Cover

Connor Bourke and I met when we were twelve years old. He was a quiet boy with so much to say and only one way to say it—through song. He’d lost his best friend to cancer, so I showed him there was love and life in loss, and to hold on to his memories, always.

Eloise Mitchell was a blazing fire when my world turned dark. She’d shined so bright and burned so fierce that the wall I’d built around myself simply melted to the ground at her feet.

We shared everything together:

Our first kiss,

first love,

first mistake,

and first regret.

She taught me to speak,

to forgive,

and to never forget.

Through his music, he could say all he needed to say except for, ‘I love you’.

I could never tell her those three words.

Yet, I knew he meant them, that he loved me beyond all measure, beyond time

… beyond a broken heart.

I loved her more than anything.

Our bond was unbreakable.

Our love was ever after.

But, then, we tend to destroy the ones we love most.

And all bonds break, especially when the heart is what holds them together.

Excerpt

“Eloise.” Connor’s hand shot out and clasped mine. “Don’t leave.”

“Please let go. I can’t stay here right now. I need air.”

He didn’t quite chuckle but waved his hand at the space around us instead. “There’s plenty of air.”

“Yeah, but you’re stealing it,” I choked out, unable to hold back my tears. “You’re always stealing my air.”

“What are you talking about?”

“You!” I shrugged out of his clasp so that I could point my trembling finger at him. “You breathe air into me and then you steal it, and I’m left gasping. Why do you do that? Why can’t you just let me breathe with you?”

Connor’s wide eyes searched mine, darting from side to side like a ball in a pinball machine. He looked so lost and helpless, and stupid, so I elaborated. “Every second we are together, I feel alive. Every kiss, every touch, every unspoken word breathes life into me and I tether myself to it, afraid to let go. But then you refuse to tell me how you truly feel with the words you were given, words I know you can damn well say and choose not to, and it sucks that air right back out of me, and I … I can’t breathe.”

He closed his eyes, his shoulders sagging.

“Why’s it so hard for you to say?”

Connor didn’t respond. He just kept his eyes pressed shut, as if I weren’t even there, and it ripped me in two.

“JUST SAY IT,” I shouted. “Just tell me you love me. I know you do.”

“If you know I do then why do you need to hear it?”

“Because some words mean so much. Some words need to be heard and spoken.”

“Not those.”

“Of course those. They’re the most important three words anyone can say.”

“No, baby, you’re wrong.” Connor opened his eyes, grasped my arms, and pulled me to sit on his lap, securing me tightly, his finger tracing a heart over my own. “My love for you goes beyond what words can say and do, so yeah, I choose not to say them. Those three words are empty where we’re concerned.”

I sobbed. “But I need to hear them.”

“You don’t,” he whispered, pressing his palm over my heart and placing my palm over his, the pressure firm, both of our hands unmoving. “Do you feel that?”

A reverberating beat travelled through my body into his and from his into mine, our pressed hands a bridge, one beginning where one ended. We begin where we end.

What I’d written in my notebook before we made love hit me like a truck, and I jolted and gasped.

“What, Eloise? What’s wrong?”

“I get it.”

“Get what?”

“I get that you don’t want to say what you feel or that some words to you are empty. I get that, deep down, we don’t need words to prove our love, that what’s in here,” I said, massaging my fingers into his chest, “and here,” I added, twitching my other hand over my breast, “speak for us.”

A small smile crept across his face.

“But,” I continued, “words mean a lot to me. You know that. They’re not empty where I’m concerned. They could never be empty.”

He sucked in a deep breath and let it out slowly. “If you want words so desperately, I’ll give you words. But they’ll be my words. No one else’s.”

“All I’ve ever wanted was your words, Connor Burke.”

“Okay,” he said, cupping my face. “You’re. My. Ever. After.”

A tear spilled down my cheek. They weren’t the words I’d expected him to say and, yet, to him, they meant more. They meant always and forever.

They were perfect.

Sinking into his arms, I let Connor cradle me for what felt like an eternity, and I realised in that moment that an eternity with him would never be long enough, that always and forever was too short.

📚BLOG REVIEW📚
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I’m not sure I can find the words to express how much I loved this book as I’m not as talented in expressing myself in the written word as KM Golland is. This is the first book I read by Ms. Golland and wow!! I don’t believe I have ever highlighted so many passages in a book before to go back and read again and reflect on. Her words were like poetry, constructing an amazing story about Connor and Ellie that I will go back and read again. Although the story broke my heart many times, it also healed it again. This isn’t your typical love story. Connor and Ellie’s relationship was at times so easy yet they struggled so much. They were young and trying to figure out life, love, and how they fit into each other’s lives. But when they were at their best they were #relationshipgoals! Don’t miss this one!! It may be my favorite of 2019!

Braxton Michaels never thought of Paisley Reed as the other half of his heart. He loved her like family—the kind of love that meant someone would always be in your life, but not the kind that had him wanting to run down the aisle. At least, that was what he told himself.

When tragedy struck, leaving him and his daughter all alone, Paisley stepped in to help. It didn’t take him long to start seeing Paisley for the precious gem she was, but did he realize this a little too late?

***

Paisley Reed had always loved Braxton, but she knew there was no way he’d ever see her as more than his best friend. Her love went unrequited for far too many years. Finally, she’d given up, sealed a piece of her heart under lock and key, and learned to live with the knowledge that Braxton would never be hers.

Then fate opened the door for her in an unimaginable way. Does she take a leap, unlock her heart, and hope for the best? Or should she continue being his best friend, knowing he’ll never love her as much as she loves him?

📚BLOG REVIEW📚
This was an interesting book. The story goes into the past and gives the background of Paisley and Braxton and then brings you to present day. Paisley and Braxton has been friends since childhood. Paisley has had a major crush on Braxton. One drunken night she decided to push the limits and it did not go as planned so she kept a silent crush on him. Braxton outside of the drunken night never paid attention or notice Paisley’s crush on him. Braxton experienced a lot of heart break throughout this story. Although Paisley’s love for Braxton was one sided she stayed by his side and helped him through his tragedy. This friends to lovers romance is filled with a lot of angst but it also shows a beautiful friendship that turns into a beautiful romance. My biggest grief with the book is the third person POV, I found it to be a bit confusing.

Title: Crazy for Loving You
A Bluewater Billionaires Novel
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: November 8, 2019
Blurb

Is there anything hotter than a growly, overprotective
Marine cradling a baby? My melted ovaries don’t think so. 
When you work hard and have the bank account to prove it,
you’re entitled to play hard. I’ve seen some crazy things. I’ve caused some
crazy scenes. And there’s no shame in my game.
But I’m still knocked off my stilettos when an insane chain
of events leads to me inheriting a baby. The craziest part? The baby comes with
a by-the-books, no-nonsense retired Marine who’s so regimented that I wouldn’t
be surprised if he irons his boxer shorts. 
Parenting? Bring it on. I don’t need sleep—I once started my
day with business meetings in Cairo and ended it three days later at a club in
Melbourne. Changing diapers? Please. It can’t be any more challenging than
changing out of Spanx on the back of a moving motorcycle. Training the little guy
to run the family’s real estate empire? He’ll be all our bosses by the time
he’s four.
But living with my new co-guardian? The gruff, muscled,
tattooed former military man who manages to check all my boxes while trying to
sneak under my skin?
He needs to go.
Because the longer he stays, the more layers he’s peeling
off my heart.
But love isn’t something that’s ever diluted my gene pool,
and I like my life just fine without it. I have awesome friends, this adorable
baby and an obscene amount of money. Who needs love? 
Turns out…maybe me.
Crazy for Loving You is a larger-than life ride
through accidental parenthood featuring a fun-loving billionaire playgirl, a
crusty Marine with a gooey center, a horny dolphin, the world’s most obscene
pool, and all the fun you’d expect from a world built by Lucy Score, Claire
Kingsley, Kathryn Nolan, and Pippa Grant.
