**A standalone royal romance** 

At first glance I probably seem like any good-looking guy in their late twenties. I have an obscene amount of confidence, a tattooed body sculpted by the Nordic gods, and I love the ladies as much as they love me. 

If I’m not BASE jumping or car racing, I’m chasing other devious thrills with the woman of the week. And that’s fine if you’re the average single guy.
But I'm not the average single guy.
​I’m Crown Prince Magnus of Norway and my latest scandal just landed my entire royal family in hot water.

Now the only way the monarchy can save face is for me to smarten up – publicly. If I don’t, I’ll no longer be heir apparent to the throne. So it’s either I abdicate my future role as King or…
I get married.
To a blue-blooded stranger.

Enter Princess Isabella of the tiny country of Liechtenstein.

Quiet, intelligent, and uniquely beautiful, Ella doesn’t like this arrangement any more than I do and she’s not afraid to show it. She says I’m a womanizer, that I don’t take anything seriously, that my ego should be taken down a few pegs, and I think she aims to make me miserable for the rest of my life.

But even as our arranged marriage becomes a war of wit and words, I’m determined to break through Ella’s prim and proper façade to find the wild​, sexual​ and risk-taking woman underneath. I want to uncover the Queen inside her.

The only question is – will she let me?

**The Wild Heir is a standalone royal romance releasing exclusively into Amazon and KU on May 17th. It is a spinoff of The Swedish Prince but it is not necessary to read that book beforehand as The Wild Heir is about different characters**

Magnus the Crown Prince of Norway is kind of a hot mess. He is a party boy and manwhore who is fodder for the tabloids. He is impulsive, out of control, and is an adrenaline junkie. But now he has created a really big royal scandal and due to other circumstances, he is being dealt a surprising ultimatum...pick a bride.

Princess Isabella of  Liechtenstein is a quirky, loner student. She is smart, opinionated, spirited, and believes in environmental causes. She has spent her life wanting approval from the men in her family. She is one of the appropriate short list for a possible bride, and unfortunately Magnus' reputation proceeds him.

These two clash and repel. But it is also a bit exciting. And the more time they spend together, the more interesting it gets. She's resistant and even tries hard to avoid him. He's a bit fascinated by her. The more she fights and challenges him, the more he gets excited. He loves to rile her up. She revs him up without trying. And no matter how much she tries not to look, he is one sexy, wild man. And he tends to push her out of her comfort zone as well.

These two seem like opposites, but are also both misunderstood often. They were both unique and quirky, but seemed to be able to actually see each other. And they have plenty of sexual tension. I loved the flirty and fun banter, their question games, and almost reluctant attraction between these two. 

This is a slow burn, arranged marriage, opposites-attract, royal romance with humor, hot chemistry, and just enough angst and drama. I loved seeing the different sides of Magnus. There is really much more to him and he totally grabbed my heart. And Ella was just the girl to spark his interest and also keep him in line. They both have so many opportunities for growth and self realization. I loved how they could balance each other out in a lot of ways and provide new focus. But they also had plenty of challenges to face and many things were out of their control.

This is a standalone story but I enjoyed getting more with The Swedish Prince, Viktor, and The Dane King Aksel. I am hoping Aksel will get his own book. 

I was gifted a copy.

These books are standalone spin-offs since the main characters are friends

Kim' s 4.5 star review

**A standalone romance inspired by the classic film, Roman Holiday.**

I never believed in fairy-tales.

Never held out for Prince Charming.

Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep.

At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.

But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.

Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.

Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.

I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.

When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?

Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?
