A playboy heir needs: a man to marry, right now.

After spending half his life dodging his duty to the crown, the rebel heir to the Rosavian throne has been told in no uncertain terms that it’s time to settle down. Crown Prince Leopold has one month and a vetted list of suitable princesses, and he will announce his engagement during Rosavia’s Royal Ball. But Leo’s got his own ideas about what really suits him…

Royal Librarian Edvin Blom is good at not attracting attention. Shy and self-conscious of his stutter, he’s used to being overlooked and more than happy to stay in the background. At least, until the crown prince with a wild reputation shows up at the library’s new opening and decides to flirt with Edvin’s sister…

Edvin isn’t at all what Leo thought he wanted, but turns out to be everything he can’t stay away from. Edvin’s been burned by falling for someone out of his league before, though. And believing that Leo has really fallen for him? While Edvin’s drowning in his own doubts and insecurities, that might prove impossible… unless love gives them both a reason to come up for air.


Up for Heir is the first book in the shared world series, Rosavia Royals. Each book is written by a different author but happen at the same time and in the same place. They don’t have to be read in order but there are some characters in each that you might recognize.

As the crown prince, Leo needs to find a suitable match ASAP. Of course, that plan doesn’t exactly pan out the way he thought when he meets shy Edvin.

I really enjoyed Edvin. He was so, so sweet, and even though he had some self-esteem issues from a horrible ex, he was fierce in his love for his family. Which is a total weakness for me—characters who are normally quiet getting to stand up for those they love? Perfection.

I liked that there wasn’t an issue within this “world” when Leo fell for a man instead of a woman, but I sort of wanted to see him at least react to his attraction since he’d only ever been attracted to women before. Without any sort of reflection or realization, the story doesn’t really fulfill the “awakening” of bisexuality.

The pacing was a little slow in places with a lot of navel gazing during conversations. I’m all for internal realizations but there was a little too much rambling between lines of dialogue sometimes.

Overall, it was a sweet read and I’m interested to see how the rest of the series turns out. Having a whole series of royals finding true love? Definitely sounds like fun!
