All they want is everything they can’t have.

Penny…

Yes, yes, I've heard the rumors.
The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that.
The problem is, he's also my job.

When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away.

Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.

Sebastian…

I never wanted the throne.

When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don't have to rule the kingdom like my father expects.

Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed.

Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

 

Are you ready to be royally blown away?!

Max Monroe, New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author

 

 

Contemporary Romance, with dual-POV.

Book #1 of a series. This should be read in order and there is a cliffhanger at the end.

 

 

  • Addictiveness: It was an easy read that it could have been done in one sitting. The story kept me going and I’ve ended wanting more.
  • Character: hero 4/5, heroine 4/5, secondary characters 4/5, growth 4/5, real 4/5  They were all easy to love, connect and understand. Sebastian and Penny have similar backgrounds, even though they don’t know it. They both want to break the mold, but don’t really know how. They were not looking for love, and their relationship is forbidden. They make it easy to like them and to root for their impossible love story. There are a lot of interesting secondary characters like Ariel, Lucas and the guys from the Blake security firm.
  • Cover: art 4/5, title 5/5, subtitle 4/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I would buy this book without reading the blurb. The art is sexy, the title is catchy and the overall effect is hot.
  • Freshness: This is a different. The plot has a fresh feel. Two or three twists in there that elevates the story and makes it UNIQUE!
  • Plot: believable 4/5, conflict 5/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 4/5, pace 4/5, setting 4/5, subplots 4/5, twists 5/5  Good opening and wonderful ending. Perfect conflict and  very well written dialogues. Steady pace with enough subplots to enhance the story. A few unexpected twists that had me in shock! Really, those twists made the story. It kept me going and I can’t wait to read more.
  • Romance: believable 4/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 53/5 Yes. I could feel their attraction from the beginning. Their chemistry was amazing and the romance was slowly built, but very believable. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen now.
  • Writing Style: I loved it. It was a fun, sexy read, with a great love story and very interesting plot. The author knows how to shake the readers and change the pace.

  • If I had the second book now to read it. I can’t wait to know what is going to happen.

 

Yes! This was my first book from the author and now I can’t wait to read more. Really looking forward to Cheeky King!

From USA Today Bestselling Author Nana Malone, comes a sexy, royal novella.

What Good is a Throne if the King Isn't Worthy...

Before I was a King…
Before I was known for my naked hot tub antics…
Before my neighbor turned my world upside down…
I was a Cheeky Prince.

 

 

This is a prequel to Royals Undercover series.

I don’t consider this a novella.

Is really short, with four small chapters that give a bit of background to both Sebastian and Penny’s past.

To enjoy Cheeky Royal, you don’t really need to read this, but it enhances the experience.

This is not to be read as a story on its own. There is no plot here, only a few snippets of the lives of Cheeky Royal’s main characters.

What good is a King without his Queen?

Sebastian…

I never wanted the crown, but now it's mine.
Instead of my freedom–instead of her.
But even though she’s not mine to keep, I can’t seem to stay away.

Penny…

The moment he became king, I knew we were over.

Now I’ve returned home some kind of conquering hero.
If only they all knew that we'd both lost our hearts.
If only I could stay out of the royal bed.

What good is being cocky if you can’t get what you want?

About Nana Malone

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.
