Title: Royally Deep
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Sports Romance
Take one sexy quarterback,
Mix in one adventurous princess,
Add some serious sexual tension,
And you get the royal romance of a lifetime.
Kyle Young—all-star quarterback and lady-killer—thought he knew what he wanted out of life: freedom, football and fun. Then he meets Bella. She seems like the perfect woman: gorgeous, funny, and a huge football fan. But what he doesn’t know? Bella also happens to be Princess Arabella of Salasia.
Yearning for adventure and romance before she devotes herself to her country and marries a man she doesn’t love, Arabella can’t believe her luck when she meets Kyle. Sparks fly between the football player and the princess, and they begin an affair neither of them could’ve imagined.
Soon, however, duty and self-doubt cause Kyle and Arabella to separate. Can he become the prince she needs? And can Arabella overcome her family’s disapproval? Or will their love transform back into a pumpkin at midnight, leaving them both without a happily ever after?
REVIEW: ROYALLY DEEP (GOING DEEP) BY VIRNA DEPAUL
Royally Deep by Virna DePaul
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Virna DePaul never falls short of capturing an audience. Whether rocking out with the band, lusting after the bad boy, learning family secrets or searching out a new life and experiencing some long needed freedom, it's a forgone conclusion that each journey will be captivating. Royally Deep turns the aristocracy on it's head with a fearless princess and her unconventional Prince Charming. Bella is her own woman. A world of structure has bred a woman willing to break down those walls and create her own path. Kyle, is living the dream. A spectacular career full of money, opportunity and stardom. The bright lights should be enough, but an energetic firecracker is about to shake up his life and heart in a short amount of time. Royally Deep dares to be different. Ms. DePaul takes a dab of fairytale and blends it with an abundance of modern day romance. Sports, royalty and romance deliver a touchdown.

“Hey, isn’t that…?" Heath asked, briefly stopping eating.
Looking at the board, Kyle’s heart stopped. He knew that face, that hair, that smile. He’d know it anywhere. It was Bella—or more correctly, Princess Arabella of Salasia.
“Is that Bella from the bar?” Alec asked, head tilted.
Kyle didn’t say anything. He didn’t even know what to say. His duchess was a real-life, honest-to-God, castle-living princess? He’d slept with a princess? Jesus, if anyone found out, they’d probably send him to the guillotine. Kyle assumed the guillotine was no longer in use, but they’d probably make a special exception for an American football player who grew up in a trailer park, touching actual royalty.
Alec leaned over and said quietly, “Did you know?”
Kyle just shook his head.
