The world could always use a little more love, and what better time for a little romance and optimism than during uncertain times? If you agree, Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston might be balm for your soul, and a smart, sexy balm at that. If you want to know what happens when America's First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales, be sure to pick up a copy. What begins as a fake friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, and their secret romance could upend two nations. You’ll find this book proves true love isn’t always diplomatic.
