he touching and ground-breaking account of the Queen and Princess Margaret's childhood by their nanny, with a foreword by former BBC Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond. In little more than fifty years the regard with which the Royal Family are held has changed out of all recognition. Their private lives are now the stuff of soap opera and it seems any one who comes into contact with them sells their story to the magazines or to the newspapers. Marion Crawford, 'Crawfie', as she was known to the Queen and Princess Margaret, became governess to the children of the Duke and Duchess of York in the early 1930s, little suspecting she was nurturing her future Queen. Beginning at the quiet family home in Piccadilly in the early 1930s and ending with the birth of Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace in 1948, Crawfie tells how she brought the princesses up to be 'Royal' whilst also exposing them to the ordinary world of underground trains, buses and swimming lessons. THE LITTLE PRINCESSES was published in 1950 to a furore we cannot imagine today. Crawfie was demonised by the press, and the Queen Mother, who had been a great friend and who had, Crawfie maintained, given her permission to write the account, never spoke to her again.
Based on a seldom-told true story, this novel is perfect for everyone who is fascinated by Britain’s royal family—a behind the scenes look into the nurseries of little princes and the foibles of big princes. April, 1897: A young nanny arrives at Sandringham, ancestral estate of the Duke and Duchess of York. She is excited, exhausted—and about to meet royalty. . . . So begins the unforgettable story of Charlotte Bill, who would care for a generation of royals as their parents never could. Neither Charlotte—LaLa, as her charges dub her—nor anyone else can predict that eldest sons David and Bertie will each one day be king. LaLa knows only that these children, and the four who swiftly follow, need her steadfast loyalty and unconditional affection. But the greatest impact on Charlotte’s life is made by a mere bud on the family tree: a misunderstood soul who will one day be known as the Lost Prince. Young Prince John needs all of Lala’s love—the kind of love his parents won’t…or can’t…show him. From Britain’s old wealth to the glittering excesses of Tsarist Russia; from country cottages to royal yachts, and from nursery to ballroom, Charlotte Bill witnesses history. The Royal Nanny is a seamless blend of fact and fiction—an intensely intimate, yet epic tale spanning decades, continents, and divides that only love can cross.

The luscious Lara Brennan is as loving to the children as she is exasperating—and unforgettable—to the prince.

It's going to be a tough choice for Rowan: leading the country he loves, or loving the woman who captured his heart….

Prince Alastair Smythe has known his entire life that he was meant to serve at his father, the King's side as his assistant and advisor. To that end, he maintains a very respectable public image, all the while having a very naughty and bad boy reputation to those bold enough to speak of his illicit liasons. When his eldest brother, Algerone finally introduces the family to the wife and children he'd kept hidden for fourteen years, Alastair knew it was his job to make sure that his new sister-in-law and nieces and nephews all acclimated to the Kingdom of Malvidence easily and smoothly. No hiccups. No problems. No drama. But that was not to be. In the midst of danger and problems from all sides, Alastair has been tasked with hiring the royal nanny, a responsibility he dreads with every fibre of his being. Until he saw her walking up the palace drive. Now, the bad boy prince, and self-declared lifelong bachelor, finds himself lusting, obsessing, and yearning for the new nanny, Leyah, determined to make her his in every way possible, and to watch her belly swell with his child. However, Leyah has a secret. Generations ago, her ancestors ruled the land upon which Malvidence now stands. With each new birth, the king and queen has tasked their children with reclaiming the former country of Waldakan. By any means necessary. And after losing her parents as a child, Leyah has finally found a way into the country of her sworn enemies. She has planned everything down to the tiniest detail, prepared for every contingency, and marked every escape route. She is prepared for everything. Everything except Prince Alastair and his determination to take her virginity, make her his consort, and get her with child. Now Leyah and Alastair must decide what is more important: the honour of their respective kingdoms, or their love that refuses to be denied.
