unavoidable

Unavoidable is Part 1 of the Royal Affair trilogy.

Unavoidable is that book. Everything about it is fantastic; I found myself rooting for Princess Lucy from the very first page, from her obvious unhappiness at the role she is trapped in by her birthright, to her desire to be more than just the figurehead role for her people.
