Review: Falling Hard for the Royal Guard

This book was so much fun! I loved learning about the Tower Guard nearly as much as I loved the romance. There is some misunderstanding trope in this book, and that isn’t my favorite, but the premise in the story is unique enough that it kept me engaged and worked for these characters. Maggie is a bit of a mess, which I can definitely relate to and I loved seeing her growth. And Freddie is a mess in his own way, although that doesn’t become apparent until much further into the story. Altogether, this is a strong debut that I thoroughly enjoyed. I’ll definitely be looking for more from Clawson.



Despite living in an actual castle, happily ever after is evading Margaret ‘Maggie’ Moore.

From her bedroom in the Tower of London, twenty-six-year-old Maggie has always dreamed of her own fairy-tale ending.

Yet this is twenty-first century London, so instead of knights, she has Tinder, and instead of white horses, she has catfish. And with her last relationship ending in spectacular fashion, she swears off men for good.

And then a chance encounter with Royal Guard Freddie forces Maggie to admit that she isn’t ready to give up on love just yet… But how do you catch the attention of someone who is trained to ignore all distractions?

Can she snare that true love’s first kiss… or is she royally screwed?

A right royal rom com, perfect for fans of Red, White and Royal Blue and The Royal We.
