A simple notification turns my world upside down…

The tabloids are reporting,
I’ve taken the crown and run.
Not entirely true.

As you might have guessed,
I’m not an ordinary girl and I don’t lead an ordinary life,
But that doesn’t mean I always follow the rules.

This time, though,
I feel compelled to obey.

Which means I have to find a king,
To sit alongside my throne,
Or lose it all.

With only the clothes on my back,
I head to the land of majestic playboys,
Where a royal rebel strides right into my life.
With his sultry eyes and sinful lips,
He turns my world right-side up.

The press is calling him washed up.
I think he’s anything but.

Gorgeous, sexy, irresistible,
And utterly charming,
He’s exactly what I’m looking for.

Everything is almost too perfect,
Too easy.

Until I discover,
This hot-blooded royal has a reason for being here.
And it’s more than just me.

That thing I said about easy,
Turns out…

Nothing ever is.

My royal rebel has a name,
It’s Prince Adrien Laurent.
This is our story.

MY REVIEW

“I know arousal. I know desire. I know lost. This is something more, all three, and something different, more carnal. It’s like I’m standing on a cliff and preparing to dive without knowing how deep the water is. I’m flying in a plane and ready to jump without a parachute.  I’m at the top of a mountain and skiing down with my eyes closed. This is everything reckless I’ve ever done–all at once. “

“I have no idea if I  can ask you to take this leap with me because all I want is for us to unfold in a normal, natural way. Not to be forced together to beat some ancient clause.”

“You undo me, Tori. You completely and utterly undo me.”

OMG! I can not even begin to tell you how excited I was to get my hands on this new book from author Kim Karr!! I love, love, love getting swept up in royal romances and was super excited to read this author’s take on one of my favorite troupes.

Washed Up Royal is a fun and sexy royal romance. From the moment I dove into this story, I couldn’t help but be captivated by Tori and Adrien. Tori’s entire life has been spent being the good girl and doing what is expected of a princess. She always follows the rules, except when it comes to love. Following her break up with her fiance`, Tori must find a suitable husband if she has any hope to take the crown that is rightfully hers….The one thing Tori never saw coming was Adrien. Adrien is everything that she could ever want. He’s sexy, totally irresistible, with a naughty side to boot. Tori and Adrien couldn’t be a more perfect match. The road to happily ever after for these two won’t be easy, so you’re just going to have to sit back and enjoy this royal ride to see just how their story is going to play out…

Washed Up Royal was such a fun read for me. I easily devoured this book in just a single sitting. I was hooked and enchanted from the very first page and did not want to put this story down. Tori and Adrien had instant and intense chemistry. You could tell immediately that there were going to be an excellent match. I just loved the ease of their connection and the pull that was between the two of them. Adrien was the whole package: sexy, sweet and totally naughty. But, it was the sweet side that won me over. I loved seeing that there was more to him than meets the eye and I loved his devotion to Tori. Ugh! I just couldn’t get enough. Their story was exactly what I wanted from a royal romance.

Washed Up Royal was a terrific read for me, from beginning to end. It’s impossible to not fall in love with the characters and their story. I loved the passion and the romance. I loved the royal politics and drama. I loved seeing the desire for change and the intrigue along the way. Overall, this was a really fun book to spend my day getting lost in and I look forward to reading more from this series in the future.

Royally Screwed – By order of the Queen, Crown Prince Nicholas Pembrook has five months to choose a suitable bride.

Royally Matched – Responsibility has never been Prince Henry Pembrook’s strong suit. So when an unexpected heap of it is dropped in his regal lap, he reacts accordingly–by secretly signing up for a reality TV dating show. Henry plans on partying his worries away. What he doesn’t plan on…is Lady Sarah Von Titebottum…the quiet, stunning, shy, librarian hiding behind a book. As Henry and Sarah grow closer, old words take on new meanings for the irresponsible royal. Words like Duty, Honor and most of all–Love. Royally Endowed – For years, broody royal bodyguard Logan St. James has watched over–and wanted–perfect, perky, beautiful Ellie Hammond, the younger sister of Princess Olivia. But he’s bound by loyalty to the crown and, of course, the golden bodyguard rule: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

Release Blitz: Secret Heir by MJ Prince

Secret Heir

by M.J. Prince
Publication Date: February 27, 2018
Genres: A Forbidden Love, Enemies to Lovers, Royal Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Paperback | Barnes & Noble

Since the beginning of time, tales have been told about Eden. But all the stories are wrong.

Running parallel alongside Earth, but never touching, there exists not just a garden, but an entire world of vivid colours and breathtaking beauty where the Seraph reside.

Jazmine has lived in ten different foster homes, in ten different towns and all her life she has felt like she doesn’t belong – not in the trailer park which happens to be foster home number ten, not anywhere on Earth. After a universe shattering revelation, she discovers why. Far from being the nothing and no one, with no past and no future, that Jazmine had always believed herself to be, she discovers that she is in fact an heir to one of the seven remaining Seraph Dynasties.

She is Jazmine Evenstar, the last heir to the sovereign Evenstar Dynasty.

Thrust into the world of wealth and privilege in which the impossibly beautiful and equally cruel Dynasty heirs reside, Jazmine is forced to manoeuvre the tangled web that holds the Dynasties together. Against the backdrop of breathtaking star filled nights, sweeping coastlines, grand marble halls and decadent palaces, Jazmine tries to find her place in this beautiful new world whilst fighting not to lose herself in the process.

But the fairy tale quickly unravels.

Half human and the illegitimate daughter of the late suicide King of Eden, the other Dynasty heirs make it clear that Jazmine does not belong in their world.

Raphael St. Tristan, heir to the rival sovereign St. Tristan Dynasty and next in line to the throne of Eden, the guy with the face of an angel but who is as wicked as the devil himself, promises to break her.

Jazmine quickly learns that the beauty of Eden is nothing but a deception as she uncovers the secrets festering at the heart of it. But can she disentangle herself from the web of deception and intrigue that the Dynasty heirs have spun? Can she stop herself from falling into Raphael St. Tristan’s trap before he can fulfil his promise to shatter her completely? Or are those stories about Eden true after all and will she be foolish enough to taste the forbidden fruit that is Eden itself?

SECRET HEIR is the first book in the all new DYNASTY trilogy. A loose adaption of Romeo and Juliet but with a fantastical twist, this saga of feuding Dynasties, forbidden love, betrayal, royal scandals and power struggles for the crown promises to ensnare, captivate and shatter then leave readers clawing for more.

Review Blitz: Royally Endowed (Royally #3) by Emma Chase

Posted on

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

My Review

“My gut is my best friend, my conscience, my most lethal asset.”

“He makes me feel wanted. Valued and important, like I’m someone worth protecting. Knowing this man would give his life to shield me, guard me from pain or danger–it’s a heady thing.”

“The Queen was right. Love isn’t a cure; it doesn’t magically solve every problem. But it makes solving those problems worth it. Love is our inspiration, our motivation….and our reward.”

Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Did I ever love this book! Royally Endowed enchanted and captivated me. From swoon worthy moments to moments that just gave you all the feels, this book consumed my heart and was more than I could have ever imagined….

Told from dual points of view, Royally Endowed is the third book in the Royally Series and it follows the story of Ellie and Logan. For as long as Ellie can remember, she had her sights set on Logan. He was her fighter, her protector, he closest of friends. He is fierce and intense and everything that Ellie could ever want. But, Logan and Ellie could never be. Her attraction to Logan is forbidden as he is her bodyguard. Even knowing that they could never be more than friends, that doesn’t stop the pull Ellie feels for Logan. Ellie is young and doesn’t know where she sees herself in 5 years, but she does know one thing: she wants her own HEA….Logan has spent his life working hard and building the career and life he’s always dreamed. He is respected and hard working. You will never find a more loyal man. He has everything that he could possibly want…that is except for one thing; the woman that makes his heart sing. For years Logan has done his duty and watched over Ellie. But, as the years have gone by, his feelings have progressed. The pull is becoming too hard to fight. Logan knows that he and Ellie come from two different classes, but sometimes want and need are more important than logic. When it comes to love, there is a thin line between right and wrong, life and duty. Will Logan and Ellie get the happiness and life that they’ve always wanted?? There is only one way to find out…

Royally Endowed is by far and away my favorite story in this series to date. It’s no secret that over the course of this series, author Emma Chase has enraptured me with her smart writing and brilliant story-lines. The characters just call to you and before you know it, they consume every piece of your soul, making you fall desperately for them. And that most certainly is the case with Royally Endowed. I fell for this story straight away. I mean how can you go wrong with royalty and the hot bodyguard. Knowing just that little tidbit, you just know this story is going to be amazing and I promise you, it does not disappoint. Logan and Ellie’s story draws you in from the very first page and just utterly consumes you. Before you know it, you are blowing through the pages at a rapid pace. Ellie and Logan’s story pulled at my heart, while giving me all the feels. My emotions are all over the place in the best way possible and I seriously can’t get enough.

Royally Endowed was everything that I wanted and needed in Logan and Ellie’s story. It was full of angst and romance and swoon worthy moments. There was action and a bit of suspense. And just when I thought I couldn’t get enough, this story gave me a little bit more. I truly enjoyed everything about this story and couldn’t think of a better way to spend my day than getting lost in Ellie and Logan.

Ellie

But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.

Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.

My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.

There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.

“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”

And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.

I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.

Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”

There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.

And Logan’s watching me again.

Watching my mouth.

His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.

I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.

And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.

Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.
