It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.

This is the story of an American Queen.

Ohmygosh. Oh my gosh. Oh! My! Gosh! What did I just read?!?! Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. I have no idea where to begin.

Okay. Five things you should know about American Queen:

  • It takes place against a political backdrop. A DC romance? Yes, please.
  • The story spans over two decades, beginning with the heroine as a young girl.
  • If you hate love triangles, don’t bother with this book. It involves the relationships between the granddaughter of an influential politician and the two most powerful men in the country.
  • It’s HAWT! This book is hotter than Hades with some of the dirtiest, raunchiest, most thigh-clenching sex scenes I’ve probably ever read, including a ménage à trois to end all ménages. For all you Penny Pervies out there, I think I’ve found your Disney World of erotica. If you can’t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.
  • It’s the first book in a trilogy.


You’d better strap in because reading American Queen is one intoxicating thrill ride that will steal your breath. The story is deftly woven and entirely engrossing thanks in no small part to the complexity of the characters. This epic tale calls into question everyone’s motivations and incites conflicting emotions, all the while pushing boundaries and hurling the reader through multiple twists and turns towards Scandal Town at 200 miles per hour.

I did have some concerns about Greer’s gullibility, as well as actions taken in the last couple chapters that seem contrary to decisions and character traits displayed earlier. Then again, these are flawed characters and perhaps not everything is meant to be fully understood at this point. Who knows? It’s certainly not boring.

This is the first solo book I’ve read by Sierra Simone, and color me impressed! American Queen wouldn’t be a good trilogy without one heck of a cliffhanger, and this one certainly delivers. I have no idea what to expect from American Prince and American King, and that’s just the way I like it.

Political drama
Love triangles
