Trying to find your true love is hard enough under normal circumstances, but what happens when you have the weight of a crown on your head? When royals get romantic, lovers must navigate drama, intrigue, and trust to find their happy endings. For those who enjoy stories full of princes, lords, and earls, here, in no particular order, are ten glamorous novels about regal romance.

In the #1 spot, we have "Royally Roma" by Teri Wilson. Graduate student Julia Costa doesn't have time for romance or gossip. She needs to finish her PhD and hold down her job as a tour guide.

Coming in at #2, we have "A Royal Pain" by Megan Mulry. High-powered marketing expert Bronte Talbott is addicted to the British royal family. She can't get enough of their melodrama and scandals, especially when her seemingly-perfect boyfriend breaks up with her. All of this makes Max Heyworth seem like the perfect rebound. He's British, getting his PhD at a local university, and utterly charming. But it's a complete surprise when it turns out that he's also a duke. At first, it seems like nothing could dampen their connection, but Bronte isn't sure if she can transition from reading about royals to becoming one.
