The Royal Treatment

A Crown Jewels Romantic Comedy

kindle   kindle-paperback

For fans of Bridget Jones and The Princess Diaries comes a laugh-out-loud, feel-good comedy with a sizzling side of romance…

Ultra-private, ridiculously handsome Crown Prince Arthur has always gotten by on his charm. But that won’t be enough now that the Royal Family is about to be ousted from power once and for all. When Prince Arthur has to rely on the one woman in the kingdom who hates him most, he must learn that earning the love of a nation means first risking his heart.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tessa Sharpe, a.k.a. The Royal Watchdog, hates everything about Prince Arthur. As far as she’s concerned, he’s an arrogant, lazy leech on the kingdom of Avonia. When he shocks the nation by giving her the keys to the castle, Tessa has no choice but to accept and move in for two months. It’s lust at first sight, but there’s no way she can give in to her feelings—not if she wants to have a career or a shred of pride left when her time at the palace ends…

Can two natural enemies find their forever in each other’s arms, or will they ruin each other to save themselves?



Narrated by the incredibly talented Shiromi Arserio (A.K.A. the Girl in the Blue Box) as Tessa, and the hilarious Tom Bromhead as Arthur. (You may know Tom as the Geico Gecko or from one of the over forty movies and video games to which he’s lent his voice.)  Check it out at Tantor Media & on Audible!

I just finished this book and let me say… ahhh-mazing… Miss Summers took a fairy tale and made it real. I love that it starts by telling you about the hipocracy of tv and movies, yet confirms love and fairy tales exist. I laughed and cried, got angry and hurt right alongside the characters. The storyline in itself is brilliant…it pulls you in and holds you. I literally felt like I was her best friend and experiencing it with her. Arthur and Tessa’s story is by far one of my fave Rom-com to date and cannot wait to read the next book!!! ~ Monica Colleen ~

A fairy tale twist that Pride and Prejudice fans will love…I found this story to resemble Pride and Prejudice, while still maintaining it’s own uniqueness. I love when Tessa finds herself in situations that are hilarious and often, unflattering, it makes me relate to her even more. The chemistry and bantering between the main characters is constantly entertaining, and the family/friends are great for additional comedic moments. I laughed so hard while reading this story, and even cried a little. I can’t wait for the next installment! ~ Yeah or Neigh Reviews ~

Love it! I dont think I ever laughed so hard in a book. I absolutely loved it and I can’t wait for the second book. Absolutely brilliant. ~Carrie Stark ~

This was a laugh-out-loud, unputdownable book that left me feeling good when it ended. This book left me feeling like I’d just watched a great chick flick with a happily ever after. Loved it!! ~Carissa James ~

Filled with witty and sarcastic humour, along with massive sexual chemistry, The Royal Treatment is a great read!  Tessa’s comedic outlook on life, mixed with Arthur’s seductive personality, gives the readers an instant hit!  All of the characters add something so real to this book, it was so easy to get caught up in it! This is my first book by MJ and I love her writing style. Her words flowed so well.  Add in the quirky text/phone messages from the characters, The Royal Treatment is the ultimate rom-com!  ~Tara, Bare Naked Words Review

I’ve enjoyed MJ Summers writing since the first book that I read by her, and with each new story, I’ve only gotten more addicted. Her talented writing style not only captivates me full from the very beginning, but holds me hostage happily until the very last page. Now, I must talk about the humor of this story, as my stomach and sides hurt from laughing so much! The witty banter, and inner monologues are absolutely brilliant in their hilarious forms. Not to mention, it’s so original, that no one will ever be able to duplicate this perfectly placed humor EVER! And don’t be surprised if I repeat myself more than once, as it was that hilarious, like I’ll NEVER EVER get over the Shock Jogger, as I nearly wet my pants while reading it! Tessa and Arthur are great characters that have flaws, which makes them realistic, and yet, they were just awesome when together. I’m not giving anymore away, especially since I’m laughing all over again, I’m very excited to see what the masterpiece this author comes out with next, which means that I have to HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Royal Treatment to EVERYONE! ~ Jennifer, The Power of Three Readers

Genuinely funny and sweet, with huge laugh out loud moments and seriously cringe worthy situations. With great characters…This book moves super fast and is a lovely read that you won’t want to put down. I didn’t. You’ll love this book. It’s a feel good romantic comedy that will make you laugh until you cry. ~ Dawn, Goodreads Reviewer ~

Delightfully witty and charming! There were moments my eyes watered with laughter and other moments my heart cried for the characters. This book would make a fantastic movie and I enjoyed every word of it! ~ Jennifer, Goodreads Reviewer ~

This is a truly wonderful story. I was laughing out loud so much, I think the family though I had gone loopy… I love a good romantic comedy, and this is definitely a good romantic comedy. It has all my favorite things, an “I love Lucy” type heroine and “Prince Charming” type hero. Great combination! ~Lori, Goodreads Reviewer ~

I really liked Tessa. She was down to earth, quirky and hilarious. Oh my gosh I laughed so much. The Shock Jogger scene was the best thing ever. Seriously, hilarious. I could picture everything as if it was happening right in front of me. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and flowed beautifully. There were a lot of laughs, sweet moments, and a little bit of steam. I can’t wait for the next book in the series to see where Tessa and Arthur go next. ~Stephanie, Goodreads Reviewer ~

(MJ) just bats it right out of the park. The book has it all. Throw in huge amounts of humor and I’m running to the bathroom… you get the picture. I loved the book, I just loved it. It’s a page turner and it’s a happy book. Something we all need to read once in a while. Happy love, nothing better than that.
I can’t wait for the next book! ~ Ayekah – Goodreads Reviewer ~

Brilliant UK humor delivers a sweet royal romance. ~ Tami – Netgalley Reviewer ~

…this book was insanely great! This book was the best!  I almost wet my pants a couple times …really crazy good.  I can’t wait for the next one.  Not many people can pull off the romantic comedy thing well and you did it in the very best way! ~ Lori Z – Goodreads Reviewer ~

OMG! I was up almost all night I couldn’t Put it Down!! ~ Anna C ~

Shockingly Funny! Funny, Funny Funny. I love MJ, and you did not disappoint on this book. Tessa is a hoot, the fact that she is the only girl of 4 brother, she learned early on how to take a licking and keeps on ticking, This book is a GREAT READ. ~ Kim – Effing book club

All the feels, a few squeals, ‘shocking’ moments and now I’m a lunatic! I cannot even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this book. I can’t remember the last time I laughed this hard reading a book. Chapter 4 should have a warning label… DO NOT READ IN PUBLIC! You will receive strange looks and be given a wide berth! I had tears from laughing! Also, according to my family I had a goofy smile on my face the whole time I read it…hence the lunatic branding! The story will engulf you making it darn near impossible to put down…just ask my family. They were feeling a bit ignored…my bad, although I blame it on MJ! And when it ends you are desperate for more! This book will forever reside in my ‘read over and over again’ list! YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK! ~ Marie LaFrance, Author ~

A gorgeously funny, romantic and seductive modern fairytale… I have never laughed out loud so much in my life. I don’t think that I’ve ever said that about a book before, and yet that doesn’t even seem accurate as to just how incredibly funny, witty, romantic, swoony… and other wonderfully charming and deliriously dreamy The Royal Treatment was. I was so gutted when this book finished, I still haven’t even processed my sadness at having to temporarily say goodbye to my latest favourite Royal couple. It really is obvious that I down right loved this story, not only because of its humour and charm, but also because of how brilliantly it was orchestrated. It had the most blissful balance of laughter, tears and passion. In fact, this plot was so freaking flawlessly developed that that in itself gave me no choice but to take great pleasure from it. There were no wishy-washy consequences and moments, everything had its beautiful prideful place in the story and every word had you hooked and tagging along. You want to know the funny thing? After I read Summers’ dedication/ note to the reader, I was expecting this to be a somewhat melodramatic. I completely expected it to be a bit of downer, BUT it was the furthest thing and that attests to her PHENOMENAL writing talent. Yes, there were turns of events that were sad, and made me cry like a baby – and when I say cry, I really do mean the floodgates opened – however, for every tear that was shed a hundred more laughs and swoons were had. At one point Summers had me snorting to the point where I may have just inhaled and choked on my coffee. I know, classy right? I can also confirm that drinking coffee through the nose is not a pleasant experience for said nose, your clothes or your immediate surrounding area. It’s was so refreshing to read a story that made you blush, but was also so pure and in some aspects innocent and wholesome. It was just… I don’t know… it made me really get into the story and put myself in their shoes. I’m struggling to come to terms with reaching the end of The Royal Treatment. I don’t want to say goodbye, even if it is temporarily. In fact I’m going to follow Peter Pan’s moto: Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away, and away means forgetting. This book, it quite simply is unforgettable and impossible to leave behind. It just keeps replaying itself over and over again in my mind and making me lust for it— and more. ~ MammieBabbie Book Club
