What happens when America's First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?

When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic.

"I took this with me wherever I went and stole every second I had to read! Absorbing, hilarious, tender, sexy—this book had everything I crave. I’m jealous of all the readers out there who still get to experience Red, White & Royal Blue for the first time!" - Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners

"Red, White & Royal Blue is outrageously fun. It is romantic, sexy, witty, and thrilling. I loved every second." - Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six

    Wow, Found this book on accident and couldn’t be happier!! I will admit I was slightly skeptical about it. But from the opening chapter I was hooked into the story staying up all night into the early morning to finish it. Wish I could give it more stars!

    Fantastic book. I picked it up kinda thinking it would be a fun easy guilty pleasure read like the Crazy Rich Asians fluff type stuff and/or CW shows. But my mind was blown as it surpassed all my expectations, as it hit all these different notes - sexy, literature, history, pop culture. As I read it, I laughed, cried, and didn’t want it to end. This author is the love child of Jane Austen and Page Six, with a contemporary way of capturing the world in a can’t stop Instagram feed vivid detail. She reflects the diverse America of today, giving the lgbtq community their own fairy tale and happy ending. Can’t wait for the movie.

  • The Good Timeline

    By Mataya J.
    An absolute utopia of an alternate timeline, in which the president is a democratic woman who’s kids are both absolute bicons. I adore every single character. Reading this felt like watching a perfectly accurate Hollywood version of your favorite fanfiction.

    I don’t want this story to end. For me, this is one of the best LGBTQ novels I have read, and there have been several hundred over the past 2 decades. Thank you , Casey for authoring an exciting, fun and thoughtful read.

    A great escape into a world that is fun, complicated, and fast-moving. The LGBT+ story that we need in 2019, and an amazing representation of coming-of-age for those 20 somethings trying to figure out where they stand in the world. Highly recommended.
