About this ebook

A deliciously dirty fake marriage romance with a twist!

Being the playboy prince doesn't just have its perks—it's all perk.

So, when my grandfather says it's time to settle down, I waste no time plotting a way to remain single.

The plan? Make my fiancée hate me. 

Should be easy to do as we attend stuffy engagement dinners, where I go out of my way to prove to Elizabeth how ill-suited we are. We're total opposites—I'm all about adventure and bold new plans for my country, and Lizzy’s the quintessential good girl. Sweet. Polished. Distractingly cute and clever.

Which I admit, makes Miss Wrong harder to resist. Nothing turns me on like a big sexy brain. 

But when a family emergency brings us closer than ever before, I uncover the secret my bride-to-be has been hiding. 

And damn…looks like I’ve finally met my match.

Yep, I’ve gone and fallen in love with the one woman I’ve tried like hell to push away. My new plan? Fight for her like I’ve never fought before.

Previously titled Royal Package. Same fun story, just with a fresh title and cover makeover.

Royal Package by Lili Valente stars Prince Andrew and Princess Sabrina. Sabrina has taken the place of her twin sister Elizabeth who has been bestowed to marry Prince Andrew in an arranged marriage. Elizabeth sent Sabrina in her place to help buy her some time to complete her lingerie line. Sabrina has no intent in making Prince Andrew's life easy, remembering how he tortured her poor sister when they were young; but she also had to play the part of the quiet, shy twin with a stutter. How hard can that be? Prince Andrew has no intent on marrying a woman he barely knows; who he has spoken to once a month on the phone and especially a woman he doesn't love. Operation Prince Charmless is in effect with no intent for any prisoners. From the moment Andrew saw Elizabeth (aka: Sabrina) he noticed something was different about her. She spoke, acted and even stuttered like the Elizabeth he knew BUT the way she held her head high with this air of confidence was different. He knew little details about Elizabeth from speaking to her over the phone for years and what his spy told him. He had no intention of building a relationship with her, his mind set in making her back out of the arrangement. Sabrina knew that she had a job to do. Last for a month until the engagement party, buying time for Elizabeth to finish her line and the they could switch places for the wedding. What Sabrina didn't plan for was liking Andrew. The more time they spend together, the more each one found they enjoyed the others company. Andrew and Sabrina had a lot more in common than Andrew and Elizabeth. Soon they both found themselves falling for the other and thinking maybe this could work. BUT could it when Prince Andrew is falling for the wrong twin? Will Operation Prince Charmless back fire and become Operation Prince Charming? Sabrina and Andrew challenged each other and their relationship was sweet, adorable, sexy and real. Once again Lili Valente didn't disappoint with her spectacular writing which uses wittiness and charm to win over her readers.

Royal Package is Lili Valente’s newest novel. I have read all of Lili’s books and this is the first with a royal and I loved it. As usual, I didn’t read the synopsis so all I knew was that it was about a hot prince. I don’t want to spoil anything so... One arranged marriage. Two royals. Two complete opposites. One month until the big day. Thirty days to get to know the one they are to marry to bring two families together. A promise was made twenty years ago and it was time to fulfill that vow. Only neither of them want to. She didn’t want to marry a man who traveled the world to party then post his ass on his PicWithFriends page. He didn’t want to marry a woman who never leaves her tower. He was an adventurer while she stayed in her room sewing lingerie. The next thirty days was going to be torture. He has a plan and what he doesn’t know is that she does too. And that might just be the only thing Elizabeth and Andrew have in common. Yeah. Like I said, I can’t really say much. I can say that it was a very royal treat! It felt like a hallmark movie with a twist and with more sex appeal. I also enjoyed the crazy families. I can not wait for the next book!! Lili, you are a little tease and I love it. was a fun ride full of laughter, angst, sweetness, twists, and sexiness. Quotes: He looks expensive. Beautiful. And royal as hell. “Seriously. Not another word,” I say, shooting daggers at him with my eyes. He rolls his. “Yes, my liege and future king, your wish is my command, yadda yadda.” “You just need to start thinking of yourself as the kingdom’s daddy instead of its boyfriend.” My lips quirk, and I can’t help but ask, “Does this mean you secretly want to call me daddy?”

Royal Package by Lili Valente is a brand new story with a royal them (I LOVE THESE!!!). Welcome to the fictional royal world of Baden Bergen & Gallantia! Prince Andrew is on a mission to effectively "dissuade" his betrothed from wanting to marry him. They have nothing in common after all and an arranged marriage is NOT how he wants to spend his future life. He loves the outdoors, she is asthmatic, he will be King and be around many people, speaking publicly as will his wife, the future queen, and she has a stutter made worse the larger the crowd. Do you see his point here? Meanwhile, back in Gallantia, Princess Elizabeth (the betrothed) is convincing her identical twin sister to take her place for the good of their kingdom. Just temporarily, until before the wedding, so she can work on her project and bail the family out of debt. Feeling like her hand has been forced, Princess Sabrina agrees. She isn't dissuaded by Andrew's terrible table manners and is enjoying her time outdoors with him, even while trying to pretend to be Lizzy. But, alas, secrets this big can't stay secret for long and between Lizzy, Jeff, Sabrina, Zan and Andrew - there are a horde of secrets. Sweet, funny, romantic with a slow build to the sexy stuff. I LOVED this book and want, desperately, MORE ROYALS from the wonderful Ms. Lili!!! Enjoy The audio version was spectacularly narrated by Lili Valente and Shane East. I mean - Swoon! Their voices embody the comedy of some of the situations they find themselves in as well as they do the more serious parts of the story. Loved the Audio!
