Trust the Stars by Tricia Goyer is another title in White Crown Publishing’s Royal/Princess line. 

While in many ways this is your typical royal romance: there is a prince (Louis) who doesn’t want to be recognized, who wants to escape even briefly from the demand of being royal.

But in this case the heroine (Olivia) is also not wanting to be recognized.  She is the person behind the voice of a YouTube documentary.  She is chronicling in her documentary her attempt at trying to find out more about her past, especially her mother’s past.  She also spends her time instilling hope for the future in inner city young women as the director of a youth center.

Of course, there are moments when the cover ups are exposed. Both as Olivia discovers Louis is a prince and when he tells her he recognizes her from her YouTube presence. We see both attempt to learn about the other’s lifestyles as their feelings grow for one another.

There is a fascinating historical subplot woven through as another story comes into play. 

I’m not often a royal romance reader but I did enjoy this one.  The main characters are well drawn and the secondary characters all add to the story.

 I was given a copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
