A Note from Jenna Sutton:
Did you know nearly 120,000 people are on the organ transplant waiting list here in the United States? And every day, 20 people die while waiting for a transplant.
I became an advocate for organ and tissue donation in high school when one of my best friends ended up on the transplant list. The day I got my driver’s license, I checked the box to be an organ donor and made sure my family was aware of my wishes.
I knew I could donate blood, bone marrow, and kidneys. But I didn’t realize liver transplants could come from living donors until I met an incredible woman named Tammy. She donated 67 percent of her liver to a complete stranger after hearing about his need for a transplant on Facebook.
Tammy’s story really resonated with me because most living donors know the people they’re helping. It’s not often that someone extends such generosity to a stranger.
After talking with Tammy, I decided to spread the word about living donation. After brainstorming ideas, I came up with the story of Tessa Lulach, a flower shop owner who desperately needs a new liver, and Prince Leo of Alsania, the handsome royal who saves her life.
Like the fictional country of Alsania in Royal Mess, the U.S. has an opt-in organ donation law. In other words, you must go out of your way to register as a donor. A whopping 95 percent of people support donation, but only 54 percent are registered as organ donors.
You can register to be an organ donor in two ways: 1) online at organdonor.gov or 2) in-person at your local motor vehicle department.
By signing up to be an organ donor, you have the power to be someone’s miracle.

About ROYAL MESS:
Available May 8th
From award-winning author Jenna Sutton comes the story of two princes who discover that falling in love is messy…
Prince Leo’s icy demeanor has earned him an amusing nickname—the Polar Prince. Unfortunately, the king doesn’t see the humor. If Leo wants to secure the throne of Alsania, he must improve his image. Participating in an organ donation campaign seems like a good start. He expects to donate his organs on his deathbed, so he’s surprised to be matched with a complete stranger who needs his help now.
Tessa Lulach hates to admit it, but she’s a damsel in distress. When a handsome prince offers to save her with a hunk of his liver, she joyfully accepts. She can’t wait to feel like herself again and return to her beloved flower shop. Instead, her identity is revealed, and the quiet life she loves is turned upside down.
As Leo and Tessa deal with the nosy public and ruthless paparazzi, she realizes the Polar Prince is much warmer than he seems—scorching hot, in fact. He willingly gave her a part of his liver, but can he give her his whole heart?
Everyone loves Prince Marco of Alsania, despite his reckless antics … or maybe because of them. So why does sexy schoolteacher Cassie Lulach prefer a boring investment banker over him? Wounded by her indifference, he has an erotic encounter with a masked woman at a royal ball who reminds him of the one he really wants.
After another failed relationship, Cassie is frustrated with immature, inconsiderate guys. Wanting to escape reality, she attends a masquerade ball and finds herself alone with a masked stranger. For the first time in her life, she acts on impulse, only to end up pregnant and absolutely clueless about the identity of her baby’s father.
When Marco learns of Cassie’s pregnancy and her plans to raise the baby alone, he promises to be there for her, hoping she’ll finally see him as more than just a playboy prince. But then he discovers she’s the woman from the masquerade ball and panics. Will the truth destroy his chance to win over Cassie, or will he convince her that they can have their own happily ever after?
