We’re celebrating the release of Royally Deep by Virna DePaul!
Title: Royally Deep
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: January 10, 2017
4 ROYAL CROWNS
I love a sports romance. There is just something I love about a sexy athlete taking all his or her dedication, stamina, and drive into a relationship and the bedroom. I also love a royal romance. Entering the world of decadence, rules, and expectations gets me every time. So when I saw that Virna DePaul’s newest book would merge the two worlds, I couldn’t resist reading it, and I wasn’t disappointed!
The characters of this book are what make it so delightful to read. Kyle Young, with his southern drawl and good looks, will enchant readers. It is easy to understand why Bella would fall for him and his adventurous spirit. What I enjoy most about his character, though, is that he isn’t confident 100% of the time. So many times, the athlete in a sports trope is over-confident or borderline arrogant, but this isn’t Kyle at all. He has insecurities that stem from issues from his past that are still affecting him today, but these insecurities only made me love him more. This author is able to write him in a way that makes him vulnerable, yet still maintain the qualities readers love in hero. Virna DePaul’s rendition of the athletic hero is also incredibly refreshing. Additionally, Bella has similar issues and longings of that of any princess in a royal book; however, there is something special about her. Her spirit, zealous nature, and her sense of adventure are endearing. I also love that as the novel progresses she takes charge and goes after what she wants. I absolutely fell in love with these two characters!
The plot of Royally Deep follows the standard royal/sports trope. However, this did not in any way detract from my enjoyment of the book. It is quick. It is fun. It is romantic. It is entertaining. What more could a readers really want from a book? Plus, the unique twist on the characters and their development more than make-up for it, and at the end of the day, I really enjoyed this one.
Royally Deep is such an enchanting read. I laughed, I swooned, and I found myself smiling at my Kindle while I ate up Virna DePaul’s words. It was truly a lovely experience to enter this world she has created, and I am excited for the next book in the series!

He brushed his fingers across her cheek. “You sure about this?”
That she had an answer to. “I’ve never been more sure of anything in my life.”
At that, Kyle led her from the door to stand in the muted light. Their room held a queen-sized bed with a charming quilt, and wooden furniture scattered throughout. She thought she could hear the sound of a record player somewhere downstairs, but otherwise it was quiet. Quiet except for her breathing, and the roaring in her ears from her pounding heart.
Kyle’s fingers glided down her face, down her throat, brushing against her beating pulse before brushing against her collarbone. She swallowed. His index finger made a figure eight around her heart, right above her cleavage.
“Tell me one more time,” he said in a low voice. “Tell me you want this.”
“I want this. I want you.” She knew she sounded desperate, but she didn’t even care at this point. “Kiss me, Kyle.”
He’s here to score and he always wins.
Heath Dawson: football star, gorgeous man candy, and panty-dropper extraordinaire. He was also Camille Pollert’s first crush. But then he humiliated her at a high school football game, and while she got her revenge, she also closed off her heart.
Ten years later, Camille is a football photographer and single mother, and her old crush returns with a vengeance when she sees Heath again. He’s just as handsome, but now he’s a man. A man she can no longer resist.
Heath hardly recognizes the skinny girl he knew in high school, but he can’t deny the attraction he feels for the curvaceous and beautiful woman Camille has become. He wants her, and he always gets what he wants.
Just as the two of them start to realize they might be perfect for one another, reality rears its ugly head. Can Heath and Camille score a touchdown for their love? Or will they fumble the play and be parted once again?
