Smitten With the Royals







Cheeky Royal; Royals Undercover Duet (Series)
by Nana Malone (Author)

This review is from: March 23, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Cheeky Royal begins with Cheeky Prince, a short prequel to Cheeky Royal. A look into the royal life of Sebastian Winston, the crown prince to the Winston Isles. As a young boy Sebastian is allowed time to play, like any ordinary child, but even he knows he lives the life of no ordinary boy. Soon he is to be sent off to boarding school where he will be schooled in everything he needs to know so he can one day take over the kingdom.

In Cheeky Royal we meet a cocky prince who is more fond of sating his own needs vs. caring about those of the kingdom. We also get to meet Penny, the young girl who used to play with the crown prince as a child who is now a young woman trying to find her own way among the pressure of joining the family business; serving in the royal guard.

Penny refers to herself as Calamity Penny; she is klutzy, a screw up, and constantly making the wrong choices when it comes to protecting diplomats who visit the Island.
After a final screw up, she is basically reprimanded to desk duty, which is no better than a prison sentence to a free spirit like Penny. When the King himself asks Penny to perform a special task; bring the crown prince back home, she has little choice but to say yes (although she does have a moment of insanity where she does something very Penny-like, but I’ll let you enjoy that.)

Sebastian has been MIA for months, on his own personal mission to find his half brother and sister so they can step into his place and he can step down from duty. He longs for nothing but to be free from the obligation that the crown brings, but he can’t do that unless he can convince his long-lost, half siblings to come back and step into his place. He’s running out of time since his birthday is approaching and he is next in line to receive a place in the Regents Council. A powerful seat that is his birthright unless he can recind it.
When a sexy new neighbor moves in across the hall from him, Sebastian finds it hard to keep his sights on the prize. It’s the first time in months he’s lost his concentration. Something so familiar about the mystery neighbor calls to him, reminds him of things he cannot have, but he also can’t seem to stay away.

Penny finds the prince, that part was easier than she expected. What she didn’t count on was how hard and fast she’d fall for him. She knew he was charming, good looking, and a womanizer, but she didn’t know he was smart, kind, and a man she could actually care for. Her assignment from the king was to keep him close, but exactly how close he was meaning. The longer she spends time with Sebastian the harder she is finding it define closeness.

Cheeky Royal is charming and Calamity Penny is adorable in all her awkwardness. Penny clicks with everyone, her best friend Ariel is funny, her chemistry with Sebastian is hot, and even her conversations with her mother are adorable. Cheeky Royal does end with a cliffhanger and picks up in Cheeky King. I’m dying to know what happens with this couple as their chemistry is off the charts, so stay tuned.

Brit rockers hit the US for the Get Rocked! In Vegas Festival

Sam MacAvoy’s a British rocker who has charted consistently at number one all over Europe since following in his brother, Julian’s footsteps. Now Sam’s been invited to Vegas to debut at the Get Rocked! In Vegas Festival and he’s brought his red hot band, Style Strike with him.

Ashley Jacobs can’t stand musicians, or over-the-top egotistical men. Somehow she finds herself in amongst dozens of them when she agrees—against her better judgment—to take a three day summer job at the Festival.

Paul Gray, Style Strike’s bass player and the star of his own social media channel, has women falling at his feet. What he can’t quite understand is why his charm isn’t working on the attractive and curvaceous, Ashley. She’s not interested in his social media stardom, nor does she care that he could have any woman he wants at the rock festival.

Or does she?

Amazon US:


What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas—unless it follows you home.

All Ashley Jacobs wants to do is forget about the Get Rocked! In Vegas Festival and get on with her life. Unfortunately, the one night she spent in the arms of

British band, Style Strike’s bad boy bass player, Paul Gray makes that simple wish impossible. She’s brought home more than memories. What should have been a fun fling before she settled into her orderly life has gone awry. To her horror, Ashley’s entire life is turned upside down when she discovers that she’s pregnant. She’s literally about to be left holding the baby.

Paul Gray’s never forgotten that night in Vegas with the woman who wanted nothing to do with a rock star. Style Strike’s US tour has gone from strength to strength and his social media star is on the rise. Paul finds himself surrounded by everything he’s worked so hard to achieve. His life is awash with women, fame and fortune—but all he can think about is the sensual woman who walked away from him that night in Vegas.

Knowing the tour’s about to hit her hometown, Ashley makes the sensible decision to contact Paul. He needs to be told about the baby, doesn’t he?

What other’s are saying about The Good Doctor:

“This story is sure to pull at your heart strings. Domestic violence is an ugly thing, but Andi Jaxon took something horrific and told a beautiful story. You can’t help but fall for Adam and everything he does for Isabel and Sophie.” –Courtney Hagel-Swinson

“I read the blurb and it intrigued me. What I didn’t expect was to be in tears right from the beginning and I knew that I was going to need comfort food because it was going to be one of those stories.” – 1-Click Addict Support Group

“A beautiful story about finding yourself and finding help, love and happily ever after in a place you weren’t even looking. This story deals with a very difficult subject. Abuse is one thing that should never be tolerated but its so hard to walk away from. I can attest to this. Waling away and starting again is the hardest thing you will ever do but it will also be the best start to the rest of your life. Watch out for triggers but so worth the read. An emotional rollercoaster that ends in an HEA.” – Teresa

“I love this book! It runs you through every emotion. And makes you realize that there are good people everywhere.” –Jennifer Miller Molstead

Author Bio:

Raised all over the country, I’m an interesting mix of East Coast meets West Coast with a little bit of Southern thrown in, just for good measure. I married a sexy man in uniform who let me spawn and am now raising a mutinous army of hell raisers that I created myself, all while he defends our country. I drink too much coffee until it’s late enough to drink too much wine and is sexually frustrated for your freedom. I never thought I would be a writer, it was never an interest of mine. But when the voices start in and won’t let you sleep, you write so they STFU and leave you alone for a while. If you see me online, I’m probably sitting in a closet, hiding from my kids. I’m sarcastic, love a dirty alpha male, and love to laugh.
