Natalie Baldwin; the beautiful daughter of Richard Baldwin a Royal Guard is the result of a vacation romance. At age five Natalie, by her own curiosity discovered her unknown father’s contact information and phoned him in England. Discovering that he has a daughter, an only child, Richard flew to the Caribbean Island and brought his daughter back to England where she lived like royalty. They were like two peas in a pod and nothing else mattered to Richard than to be the best Father he could be; ensuring that nothing comes between him and his beloved daughter.
As Richard’s daughter, Natalie has won the heart of friends and strangers alike; bringing joy, humor and charm to everyone who knew her. At age eighteen, upset with her Father for denying her the only thing she thought mattered and finally fed up of living under the spotlight, Natalie returned to Grenada to be near her mother. Still unable to find the freedom she sought; at twenty-one, she flew to California to be with a Cousin. While in California, she met handsome, driven, Phillip Lane and fell madly in love. After Phillip proposed marriage, bound by her British tradition, they flew to England to obtain her stubborn father’s approval to marry; just in time to fulfill a long awaited promise she’d made to the Prince of Edinburgh.
NATLIE PITT has possibly seen some of the world’s most beautiful horizons. From dawn till dusk, the views from her bedroom window at her childhood home in Grenada has always been the soft yellow ray of the sun as it casts its golden reflection on the bay at sunrise. Then just as faithfully at dusk displays its multicolored memory of the day’s joy-cascading remembrance on the twilight sky at sundown. It’s no wonder she’s written “Heavenly Pillars” and now “A Royal Encounter” as she sparks the night sky with her ground breaking works of passion.
From the tender age of seven, Natlie was already obsessed with books. She was always peeking through the pages of her mother’s romance novels and hurrying home after school, neglecting any chores to read books borrowed from friends or the library. As her love of reading, so is her passion for writing. Though the unexpected joys of adulthood have led her down many different paths, her writings have always spoken louder than any other passion. Natlie lives in Southern California with her husband, daughter and two sons.

Done, Gabriel says. How hard can it be to find homes for a few kittens?
And a two-legged dog.
And a foul-mouthed parrot.
And a goat, an otter, a hedgehog . . .
Easier said than done, for a cold-blooded bastard who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse. Soon he’s covered in cat hair, knee-deep in adorable, and bewitched by a shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. Now she’s set her mind and heart on saving him.
Not if he ruins her first.
When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.
Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic.
