American Royals
American Royals #1
By: Katharine McGee
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: September 3, 2019

Book Synopsis:

What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. 

Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown. 

Two girls vying for the prince's heart. 
This is the story of the American royals. 

When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American. And their country was born of rebellion. 

As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart. 

The duty. The intrigue. The Crown. New York Times bestselling author Katharine McGee imagines an alternate version of the modern world, one where the glittering age of monarchies has not yet faded--and where love is still powerful enough to change the course of history.

Why I'm Eagerly Waiting:

I think that the synopsis sounds intriguing!  I'm fascinated by fairytales, princes, princesses, and the royal family.  Plus, I really enjoyed reading The Selection Series, and this book summary reminds me a little bit of that series, as far as the ladies vying for the prince's heart.  I really like the book cover too!  It makes it look like a fun story!
