I don't know about you, but I’ve long been a sucker for all things royal (with apologies to my friends in the UK who might not feel so warm and fuzzy about them). They had me at "royal wedding" way back when Diana and Charles had their fairytale marriage. (Let's ignore the fact that it was not at all a fairytale and instead seemed to have morphed into revenge fantasy/horror story territory by the time it all unfolded...)
I actually got to meet Prince Charles years ago (see picture below) when I was a photographer in Washington, DC, back when we all still believed he and Diana had their Happily Ever After. No, he didn't kidnap me and enlist me to help him dodge a forced marriage, as happens with Emma and Adrian in Something in the Heir. Nevertheless, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales was rather charming, and even a bit better-looking in person than he came across in pictures. And he had that accent…
I had a such a great time dabbling in the rarified world of royalty and getting the briefest of glimpses into it.
Maybe because of that, I have long loved a good escapist royal romance, and thought it would be fun to create a modern-day royal series in the vein of Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries, only for grown-ups.
It's been an enjoyable challenge concocting an actual country and an extensive royal family, friends, cities, towns, restaurants etc. It's been something different for me from a writing perspective to world-build as I have with this, and I hope you have a fun time visiting the royals and their friends in Monaforte. I’ve grown quite attached to my extended Monafortian friends! (Don’t tell anyone I’m hanging out with imaginary friends, please). And now we’ve got three books you can binge-read and a fourth that you can pre-order so that it automatically downloads for you on September 18. Please check out Something in the Heir, Heir Today Gone Tomorrow, Bad to the Throne and Love is in the Heir.
I hope you get a chance to read them! Don’t forget to find me on Facebook and on Twitter. I love to hear from readers, and emails are always welcome!
If you love my books, please do spread the word with friends, on Amazon with reviews and other book sites, and Goodreads as well. It really helps a lot.
Thanks so much for your ongoing support! I love my readers!

Slim to None is the ultimate calorie–free comfort food for the soul. Abbie Jennings' brave and often wickedly funny culinary journey from chaos to contentment had me cheering for her all the way. Jenny Gardiner knows the way to a reader's heart. —LAURA BENEDICT, author of Isabella Moon
"SOMETHING IN THE HEIR by Jenny Gardiner is a wonderful tale of love and self discovery, as two people who should have nothing in common, somehow are perfect for each other. The story flows at an enjoyable and natural pace, with plenty of funny moments, alongside the romantic scenes. I love the secondary storyline of Caro and Darcy, and I look forward to the next instalment, to see their relationship develop. SOMETHING IN THE THE HEIR by Jenny Gardiner is a fabulous short, modern day fairy tale, with interesting characters, and I highly recommend it." —Linda Green for FRESH FICTION
"Jenny Gardiner tells a wonderful, feel good story about an American commoner and a European prince. If you're looking for a quick read that's sure to make you smile, Something in the Heir will do the trick!" —Bethany Petty for CHICK LIT CENTRAL
