Overview
I met Clara Bishop when I least expected. Loving her was nothing I could ever have imagined. We’ve weathered dangerous storms together, but our love has always been a tempest. I’m not a perfect man, but I will fight to protect her and I’ll do everything in my power to keep her. But first I have to prove that she completes me.

Return to the world of the Royals and their intersecting lives, loves, and secrets. When Alexander discovers a shocking mystery in his father’s past, it threatens to divide him and Clara forever. As Belle builds her company, she ignores the pain of last year’s events. Can Smith help her move forward once and for all? Edward shocked everyone when he embraced his love for David, but a wedding seems further away than ever before. Will the couple finally make the leap? It’s going to be a scandalous, steamy holiday season for each of them.

My Thoughts

where this 7th installment takes us is a place full of closure across almost all of our favorite characters.  We see chapters intertwining the stories of Clara/Alexander, Belle/Smith, Edward/David – with each taking us to a complicated point in their lives.

We’re a year in the future and we are seeing how life has settled in for them, yet how it’s still so unsettled.

For Alexander/Clara, they have their daughter, they have their country to run, and they have their relationship, but we see that there are still so many secrets that are being kept that it threatens the happiness of their marriage.  Alexander keeps too many things close to the chest at the detriment of Clara’s feelings.  This means that we spend much of the story seeing a rift in their relationship. Top that off with the fact that we learn there’s a brother that Alexander didn’t know about, and there’s a question as to who he is and why he was kept a secret.

Then there’s Smith and Belle.  they are unsettled in the sense that their relationship is good but there’s still so much that threatens them from the past.  No one has confirmation on who killed Hammond and while they know it wasn’t Smith, the reprive that they have in feeling safe can’t last forever.  Add to that the fact that they both want to expand their family yet are afraid, we see that cause a bit of a ruffle in things.

Then there’s Edward and David, the couple that’s finally been allowed to enjoy each other how they want, yet they have challenges of their own.  Marriage is tough, especially when it’s only recently become accepted.  then there’s the fact that David wants a baby, and he often feels like he comes in second to Belle and Clara – so you know that what’s next for them won’t be something that’s come by easily.

All in all, i think this is the exact finale that we needed for this entire series.  We see so much come full circle and we see so many questions answered but there’s still so much that we don’t know for the future and wish that we could have the crystal ball to see.  Will Alexander and Clara finally be able to liver their happy life sans secrets and will the secrets kept thus far cause too much pain?  will belle and Smith ever get their baby and feel safe from the powers that be?  and will edward and david finally get their happily ever after?

the one thing that i can say i’m hoping for next though is a spinoff with Brex and Georgia and then a story line for Lola since i feel like these are all characters that we spent quite a bit of time with but never got to see their stories play out.  That’s my ask – hopefully it’ll happen.  On that note – enjoy!
