Description

A gruff prince in need of a wife
A commoner impersonating a princess
And a bridal competition gone terribly awry…

Gabriel
I am the crown prince of Villroy, heir to a kingdom, bound by duty to marry and produce an heir.
I expected a quiet arrangement through royal channels, instead I got a palace full of women vying for my hand. And how do they “win” this barbaric game set up by my crafty mother? By figuring out how to save the kingdom’s faltering economy through a series of challenges. This undignified circus is beneath a man of my stature! Proof being that a saucy, ill-mannered woman wearing body-hugging clothes is in the lead. I could never love someone like that, let alone marry her.

Anna
The plan sounded simple.
I pose as my friend, pick up her inheritance, and return with the cash to keep her out of jail. (Apparently, being a princess in hiding is no excuse for identity theft.) So, yeah, I’m not exactly royal. I’m an orphan, a self-made woman, and proud of it. Suddenly I’m in a battle royale with a bunch of crazy competitive women for “riches beyond our dreams.” I’m in a time crunch, which means I need to win this competition fast. Only, that means winning over the judge; the smoldering hot grim-faced Gabriel. And now I find myself wanting to compete for more than just the money. But could a royal prince ever fall for a commoner like me?

    Royal Catch was a very fun and entertaining story by the ever so talented Kylie Gilmore. I Love this authors style of writing she just has a great way with her words that keeps you hooked and turning the pages quickly. This is the first in her new series The Rourkes about Royals and who doesn’t love a great story with kings and queens, or prince and princesses. This is Gabriel and Anna’s story, he is the crown prince of Villroy and is expected to marry and have an heir, his mother decides to take matters into her own hands to help Gabriel find that suitable match by inviting some eligible princesses to Villory. Anna is filling in as her long lost relative who just so happens to be a princess. Let me just say this is where the real fun and excitement starts. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t put this book down. The characters are so much fun and I couldn’t help but loving Gabriel and Anna. I was pleasantly surprised by how good this story was and I cannot wait for more. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book and I absolutely loved and highly recommend this great book.

    WOW! Love Kylie Gilmore new series of the Rourkes. The Royal Catch is an humorous entertaining story of the King and Queen of Villroy inviting princesses to castle to have them participate in a contest similar to Survivors and the Bachelor. They invite them to the castle under the guise of the princesses receiving a small inheritance but they are looking to find a royal wife for their son the heir to the throne, Prince Gabriel. Anna, a beautician from Tampa is pretending to be her cousin Princess Polly to claim Polly’s “inheritance”. Unbeknown to the Princess, Prince Gabriel will be their inheritance for the winner. The princess games were creative and funny. I throughly enjoyed reading the romantic interactions between Anna and Prince Gabriel throughout the Royal Catch and look forward to reading the next book in the series. I received this book as an arc for an honest review of it.

    THIS BOOK!!! This book is SO GOOD. Don't let the RomCom genre fool you; this book, though light and containing several laugh-out-loud moments, is SMOKING HOT. But I've come to expect this from Kylie, along with the "I can't put this down"-esque quality all of her books have...especially this one! Anna is my FAVORITE. Extremely likeable and honest (well, except for that one thing...), she is who she is and doesn't apologize for it. What I liked the most was that she said and did what she wanted to when it came to Gabriel. She gave him what he needed in some key moments, be it comfort, laughter, hope. Because of that, she and Gabriel established and grew a relationship that was built on way more than just lust. They had an actual friendship as well, which I LOVED reading. Like, I read this book in one day. It consumed me. This was a truly exceptional way to start a series...I seriously can't put into words how much I enjoyed this story!!!

    By Great super duper book!!!
    The summary wasn’t clear enough. The females part of the summary was confusing and misleading. The confusing summary didn’t make me want to read the book. The author didn’t express themselves in the summary at all! The book was half-assed, very boring, confusing and basic.
