Release Blitz ~ #Review ~ Royally Relinquished by Hayley Faiman

Title: Royally Relinquished: A Modern Day Fairy Tale
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: March 23, 2017

The only thing royal about Caitriona Geneva Grace is the blue of her beat-up sedan. While luxury and vanity are terms she could use to describe her everyday life, they're not words she lives by. Rather, they're words that keep her fed—barely. As a receptionist at a medical spa, her life is far from glamorous, but she gets by. For Cait, anything beats the life she left behind when she said goodbye to her small town after high school. 

His highness, Prince Henrik Stuart, is a slave to his royal status. Bound by duty and controlled by the crown, he fears a future chained to a woman of good breeding--a match not made in love. While known as the foolhardy prince, the thought of settling down isn't what troubles him. Rather, if he could find a woman who cared nothing of his title, he would give her the world.
When a weekend trip leads to a chance meeting, both Caitriona and Henrik feel a spark between them unlike any they've experienced before. To each, the other is too good to be true, but one night of fun cannot be denied.
When she said 'yes' to the handsome, green-eyed stranger, Caitriona didn't know that she was stepping into her very own fairytale.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...except when it's legally binding.

Hayley Faiman is one of my top ten authors. I can't get enough of her mafia or MC series. But I had reservations when I started reading Royally Relinquished. After I started devouring this book which hooked me from the very beginning I knew I was getting another brilliant read from this amazing author.

From the very first meeting between Henrick and Caitriona you felt the attraction, heat and passion. But I started having reservations regarding Henrick. Deep down was he the man for her? His behavior at times was selfish, self centered and indecisive. He seemed to care more of what others thought than the woman that was stealing his heart. But just when you are ready to write Henrick off, he opens up a side that shows a depth to his character. 

Caitriona was such a sweet, kind, gentle woman but she had to have a spine of steel to take on Henrick. It was empowering to see how much she grew as a strong confident woman throughout the story. Even as she dealt with the obstacles of their relationship, she kept her poise and grace. 

Sometimes fairytales have more thorns than roses, but when you get to the heart of the story it can be an emotional beautiful tale. That is what reading this book was for me. I hope Hayley Faiman has more fairytales to write in the future!
