I thought Victoria and I could be together – until she told me her secret.

But coming to terms with her deception isn’t my only concern – my own secret has leaked to the press, and now the people of Montovia will see once and for all that I’m not the crown prince they thought I was.

And after everything Victoria and I have survived, am I about to lose everything I hold dear?

My Thoughts

So… we know why VIctoria can’t have babies and of course that means that there’s an issue of whether she can even be Andrews wife since she can’t produce an heir.  If that were their only problem right?

So we’re back in Montovia, likely not the best place for them to be together, but they are there.  And we see that it’s definitely getting harder and harder for them.  They want to be together and have admitted as much to each other but everyone around them really wants that not to happen.  Lady Clarissa walks in at the wrong moment and all hell breaks loose.  Leaving Victoria on the floor, Andrew storming off, the King pissed off yet again, and a betrothal announced.  or so we think.

Fast forward to running off to a train because Victoria needs out of the country fast, and we see that these two really can’t keep their hands off each other.  Chaos ensues and in addition to their own craziness, we learn that the secret that Andrews’ been hiding has come out – not just what we learned in book 4, but what the truth is and that means that they have to get back to Montovia ASAP to try to fix things

The question that we’re constantly asking ourselves is whether this is all worth it and if they can ever manage to find some time to just ‘be’.  Andrew throughout this story has started to evolve from what we saw at first to being a man only living for his country and duty as crown prince to a man that perhaps wants something for himself.  is he willing to do what it takes to have that though?  we don’t know yet and i’m assuming that we’ll find out in book 6 out in the next week.  Enjoy!

I’m faced with an impossible choice: Montovia deserves an heir who will do anything to serve his country, and Victoria deserves a man who will put her above all else. I can’t be both. It’s impossible.

But I also can’t give her up. I’ve never wanted anyone or anything like I want Victoria. And even though circumstances try to tear us apart, I can’t stay away—and impossible or not, I can’t put off my choice any longer.

My Thoughts

We knew that things were going to get tough for poor Andrew, and that Victoria was coming into her own realizations of what was for her and what wasn’t – but you also know that in a twisted romance like this – everyone’s going to get hurt.

So the Pageantry continues – and the farce of Andrew’s quest to find a bride becomes all lopsided since his secret is out with his father, and he’s being forced to marry Princes Justine to keep his country from becoming a laughing stock, however Lady Clarissa, his cousin seems to have this arrangement with Andrew’s father and her claws are deeply into everything.

Add the growing feelings that Victoria and Andrew have for each other, and the point that they’ve now acknowledged that they ‘care’ for one another, and you know that it’s going to be explosive.

In this 4th installment, we see things really heat up in the romance and naughtiness departments between these two.  There’s still electricity between them and i’m starting to see that our author(s) has a bit of a sexy side since the scenes that we do get are spicy.

The main point though of this fourth book though i think is that we see that these two have so much heat that they push each other away, and we see Victoria leave the palace not just once but twice because this life isn’t for her.  Because of all that too – we finally get to hear about her story – her past and what made her life into what it is.

There are things being asked of both of our main characters that’s really too much for either to cope with and i think that we’re going to see that not only will the King continue to be up in arms, but it’ll be a true test of whether their emotions and feelings are enough to make things work.  I don’t know what the story will bring since there are so many people against it all, but i think that it’ll be entertaining.  On that note – i’m off to book 5.  have a great night!

Series:  Royal Mistake #3


Falling for a prince is no fairy tale – especially when the prince in question is holding a pageant to find a wife.

I know it’s Prince Andrew’s job to marry someone from the nobility—and my job to turn his search into a juicy tabloid story—but the longer I do this, the harder it is to deny my feelings. And he has the audacity to continue this ridiculous spectacle of a marriage pageant while doing things to me in private that make my toes curl…

The more time I spend in the Montovian Palace, though, the more I start to see the other side of Prince Andrew – the side he hides beneath his brooding exterior and his unwavering devotion to his country. Finally, after everything we’ve been through, I’m starting to learn his secrets…

My Thoughts

The saga continues – and it’s getting complicated for everyone involved.  The Pageant of finding Andrew a wife is now in full force, even after the king has walked in to discover Andrew and Victoria in bed.  The woman that he’s brought in to be Andrew’s wife though, that’s another issue completely.

Suffice it to say, there’s no shortage of excitement in this third installment.  Aside from the secret that Andrew’s trying to keep from coming out, (which we only start to get to the bottom of), we have the growing attraction and inability for Victoria and Andrew to keep their hands off each other, and then add on the ‘wife candidates’ and then William (Andrew’s brother) – well you know that things will get to be good.

The change in this installment from what we saw in the previous ones are that there’s depth that’s  beginning to show.  We know that Victoria’s not clueless to what her role in all this is, but we see that it’s becoming more difficult for her to both do her job and continue down the path of whatever it is between her and Andrew.  They are both going to get hurt through all this, and Victoria seems to be trying to distance herself from it all.

Then there’s the fact that Andrew is so ‘by the rules’ that things are not just complicated but thoroughly entertaining.  He’s as stickler for all the rules of being a royal and having manners, yet clearly he’s not a man of complete manners when it comes to Victoria because he’s quite the ‘naughty prince’ when they are alone.

Now there’s adding in William – someone who’s likely a better match for Victoria on paper, and one that the Queen supports as well – but jealousy is something that we see come out in huge strength when he’s in the room.

So all in all, there’s a lot of excitement that comes out and i feel like there’s something big around the corner.  The secret that Andrew has been trying to keep under wraps has come out but in a different form, and another princess has come along in the search for a wife.  Personalities clash, emotions come to the surface and i don’t know that everyone will be happy in the end.  Can’t wait to see what’s next.

Series:  Royal Mistake #2


As the crown prince, I’ve devoted my life to Montovia. My one mistake has already cost me dearly, and I find I must now take more drastic measures to regain the trust of the people.

Victoria can help me to do just that. And though she finds my plan ridiculous, it is the only way to regain what I’ve lost.

But she continues to surprise me. And after our ordeal, I find I’m unable to find comfort anywhere but in her arms.

I can’t stay away from her, but I know that because of my position, she and I can never be together.

My Thoughts

Well, we now know that they have survived the plane crash and have found civilization and as you’ll recall, the very last scene in book 1 was that they saw the news that reported that Prince Andrew had commit suicide by crashing his plane.  So now they are dealing with that and the need to get back to Montovia in order to both squash this story as well as preemptively deal with the nonsense that caused the need for Victoria to come into play in the first place.

We find ourselves in the hospital because Victoria needed treatment for the cut on her foot.  Along with this, we see that there’s a bond growing between these 2 – we know that they have romantic feelings towards one another but refuse to act upon it since it’s just never going to work out.  Then there’s the bit of the crazy plan that Andrew has on staging a reality bit of sorts to find a wife and to get married – all to put himself back in the good graces of people, to stave off the fallout from the secret that he’s keeping and to make sure that his brother Leopold doesn’t take over his spot as the loved one.

So the novella that we have here is a bit of a jumpy one.  We end up back in Montovia, and we see how the beginnings of this crazy plan are falling into place. There’s definitely a few fishy things going on since his father the king was all to quick to agree to the idea of the farce, and then he has his own idea of who Andrew should marry.  Between you and me (and likely all of the readers) – yo uhave to know that it’s the girl that caused all the problems to begin with….right?

Aside from that, there’s the fact that there’s a clear attraction between Victoria and Andrew, everyone sees it but they aren’t really willing to admit it to themselves nor can they truly act on it.  So they continue under the guise that they can’t sleep without one another to make themselves feel better about their need to spend time together.

Being that it’s a short 2nd installment, we don’t get too much out of it.  We learn a bit more about Victoria, although the more we learn, the more we see that there are secrets in her past that we don’t yet know.  i’m kind of hoping that we will since she keeps dropping hints about reasons that she wasn’t able to do things in her past.  i’m intrigued.

Then there’s the fact of the bigger secret that we still don’t know but can guess about.  i’m curious how that’s all going to play out.

And then there’s the last scene in this book where the king barges in and sees something that he doesn’t want to.  so…where will we go from here?  it’s onto book 3 to find out.  Enjoy!

Series:  Royal Mistake #1


Some princes are charming. Others are assholes.

I’ve spent most of my career writing tabloid articles about the royals of Montovia, and Prince Andrew, the heir to the throne, was always the one that intrigued me most. He’s so guarded, so mysterious…so ridiculously attractive.

And then I met him. And I found out he’s the most arrogant, smug, infuriating man to ever live.

He also desperately needs my help.

There are three things I know for sure. First, Prince Andrew has a secret. Second, he’ll do anything to keep it a secret. And third, in spite of how infuriating I find him, I can’t help being incredibly attracted to him.

My Thoughts

I desperately needed something light to read for a minute while i was both traveling and getting through Throne of Glass since that’s a really ‘deep’ series.  So…i stumbled across this series – the first novella in the Royal Mistake Series. To be honest, it was exactly what i needed in the sense of being light and airy – but ….it’s a story that likely needs to be developed more as it probable will be in the coming installments.

So in this first book, as the summary tells you, we come across our leading lady who is a tabloid reporter who’s assigned to the royal family of Montrovia – a country that i’m guessing us supposed to be a version of Great Britain.  Anyhow…we start the story where she is the guest of one of her close friends Elle who is engaged to a Royal, however since Prince Andrew, the heir knows that she’s a reporter and doesn’t allow them at state dinners, he has her deported.  That’s where things turn for her i suppose.

So she finds herself back in the US at work, hoping to pitch another type of story where she doesn’t have to follow the royals around (a task she’s found herself in given that the Queen trusts her because of a story she helped spin a while back), and her boss isn’t having it.  She tries to resign, only to find the Prince in his office, looking for her help.

Then there’s Prince Andrew, the heir to the throne and the one that’s got a huge reputation to live up to.  Apparently there was a night in Prague a while back that he did something that he isn’t proud of and that can ruin his reputation along with that of his country – so he’s in a bind to try to spin the story before it comes out.

That’s where our character’s paths cross once again.  He needs her, she wants nothing to do with him.  Add in a plane crash and a quest for survival, along with an attraction that they don’t want to act on and we have the beginnings of a story.

The challenge that i have here, which i should get over since it’s a novella is that it’s light.  There’s not a ton of depth to it, but again, that’s kind of what i wanted to i don’t think that it makes ALL that much of a difference.  Then there’s the little twist of what they find out as news coming out of Montrovia of the plane crash – and that’s where our first installment ends.

So, all in all, exactly what i needed and while it was light, i’ll give the rest of the series a try since i think that i need something that doesn’t require a lot of my brain power to process.  Have a great day all!

Series:  A Stark International Novella


When sexy Stark Security Chief Ryan Hunter whisks his girlfriend Jamie Archer away for a passionate, romance-filled weekend so he can finally pop the question, he’s certain that the answer will be an enthusiastic yes. So when Jamie tries to avoid the conversation, hiding her fears of commitment and change under a blanket of wild sensuality and decadent playtime in bed, Ryan is more determined than ever to convince Jamie that they belong together.

Knowing there’s no halfway with this woman, Ryan gives her an ultimatum – marry him or walk away. Now Jamie is forced to face her deepest insecurities or risk destroying the best thing in her life. And it will take all of her strength, and all of Ryan’s love, to keep her right where she belongs…

My Thoughts

I love all bits of this series – all the spinoffs and all that’s going on.  Jamie and Ryan deserve happiness and it seems like they’ve found it but of course that’s never enough.  Jamie’s had a tough life from what we all know – she was first trying to break into hollywood and that was tough for her – and she was ok with the role that she played with men – being the pretty arm candy.  Then comes along Ryan – the man who turned her world upside down.

What they have together is an amazing romance, one that’s lasted years and they are really in love and happy.  the challenge though is that Ryan wants the fantasy – the marriage, kids, life and all that.  and Jamie’s terrified of that.  So in this installment of their story – Ryan thinks that they are finally on the same page, proposes and Jamie has a moment of fear again.  All because her parents are getting separated.

So, where we go in this short story is seeing what that means for the happiest couple of all.  Will Ryan be able to make Jamie stop being afraid or will Jamie push him too far and they will see the end of it all.  I think that while it’s so short, we get a lot packed into the story – and i think that it’s exactly what we needed to hold us until the next full length is ready.  Enjoy!

ARC Review: The Billionaire’s Virgin (Billionaire Fairytales #1) by Jackie Ashenden


Title: The Billionaire’s Virgin
Author: Jackie Ashenden
Publisher/Year: St Martin’s Press 1/10/17
Length:   150 Pages
Series:  Billionaire Fairytales #1


Book #1 in the intensely sexy Billionaire Fairytales by Jackie Ashenden where sometimes dark and tortured, sometimes bad boy and charming, but always dominant and sexy billionaires steal their heroines’ breath away.

Xavier De Santis: Charming. Disgraced. Playboy.

The headlines are always shouting about the excesses of the so-called Prince Charming of the De Santis family. Problem is, Xavier is everything they say he is.

But now he’s gone too far, and he has has been ordered to clean up his image. Volunteering at a homeless shelter, Xavier sees a bright light amidst all the bleakness. An angel whose luminous face and tragic beauty call to him in ways he can’t explain.

Mia: Homeless. Vulnerable. Virgin.

When the shelter Mia calls home closes, she is left with nowhere to go. Nowhere except the luxurious, glorious palace of a home where Xavier De Santis has invited her to stay. This too-handsome billionaire is dark, dangerous…and also too good to be true.

Surely Mia can indulge in her fantasies and escape the hardness of her daily life for just one night?

As one night turns into two, Mia knows that eventually, the magic will end. She can’t keep the beautiful clothes. She can’t keep the soft bed. And most of all, she can’t keep the hard, handsome man who makes her crave his touch with every breath she takes.

Mia doesn’t belong in his world. But as Xavier tempts his rags-to-riches heroine with exquisite pleasure and heady desire, Mia may have no choice but to surrender to him completely.

My Thoughts

I should first start by thanking Netgalley for getting me an ARC of this book since i do love discovering new authors that i’m not familiar with.  In this first installment to the series, we first meet Xavier, the youngest son of a business magnate, who has to pay his dues a bit because of a scuffle with the papparazzi.  As a result, he’s working at a homeless shelter as a means to get people back in their good graces.

At said homeless shelter, he comes across Mia, who’s there each night (or most) to get a meal and then be back out on her way.  There’s a connection that he feels towards her, but he doesn’t know what it is – he feels protective towards her in a way that he’s never felt before, and he doesn’t know what the draw is past that, but he’s intrigued.  When she doesn’t show up each night, he begins to worry and when he feels like she’s not cared for enough, he tries to do small things like giving her a new hat.

Being homeless has hardened Mia.  Aside from the fact that her mother bailed on her when she was just a few years old and her grandmother beat her and made her feel like she was worthless, being homeless and on her own at least is something she’s done for herself.  All she wants is a home of her own and to feel safe but she doesn’t even have the basics in terms of her SSN or her birth certificate to make that happen and that’s the biggest struggle.

One night changes all of that for her though.  The shelter is closed, and she doesn’t know where to go since the other shelter alternative has proven to be unsafe for her.  That same night, Xavier sees her trying to sort things out and takes it upon himself to bring Mia home with him and into his world.

Where the story goes from there is a bit of a stretch, but i suppose a necessary one.  We quickly see a bond grow between them, what started off as no touching quickly changes to be touch as much as you can – giving Mia experiences that she’s never had at all.

We also see Xavier trying to battle himself on this.  He blames himself for his mom’s death and we see that her voice constantly pops up in his head as a voice of reason, yet it seems to the reader that the logic there is flawed.  And just when we think that things are going to be perfect for them, family gets in the way and crashes things down, and then we see that Xavier leaves – without full explanation, and Mia is on her own again.  Will Xavier come back to find her and will he be successful?  that’s where this story takes us and you’ll have to read to find out.  Enjoy!

Review: The Bad Boy of Bluebonnet (Bluebonnet #4.5) by Jessica Clare

Author: Jessica Clare

Series:  BlueBonnet #4.5


Emily Allard-Smith enjoys running her tiny bed and breakfast in quiet Bluebonnet, Texas. The only problem? It�s haunted, and she�s got no one to call when things go bump in the night.

Enter Jericho Lozada. He�s tall, sexy, mohawked, and good with his hands. He�s also not scared of Em�s ghost. And just when Em decides that she needs a man in her life with lots and lots of tattoos�her ex shows up again.

Now Emily has to figure out if she wants to keep a hold on the ghosts of her past�or look into a future with Jericho. But does Jericho even want a future with her?

My Thoughts

we met Emily when we had Elise and Rome’s story and it’s nice to get this little novella to see how things played out for her since there was a tease in that installment with Jericho (Rome’s brother) staying at the B&B o being there more often than expected.

So in this post 4th installment, we have Emily who’s a divorcee and owner of The Peppermint House trying to get on with her life while business is slow and she’s trying to make repairs to the house.  The nuance of course is that this is an old house and has a lot of repairs, and supposedly is haunted.  Living alone and not having any guests at the moment makes things even worse since she’s terrified at night.

Then there’s Jericho – the brother we met in the last installment, who’s also tatted up and looks amazing yet a bit too rough and edgy for this little town.  When Emily hires him to do some of the work around the house, we see how things quickly take an overly friendly turn for them and it’s sweet to see that happen.

Given that this is a novella, there’s no real build here and not a ton of suspense – just a story of these two finding out if there is something to pursue and how to take that.  It’s when Emily’s ex shows up and tries to sweet talk her that we see any real action, but all in all, still a good sweet story.  Supposedly there’s a novella out there for Luanne – Emily’s sister – so we’ll see if i can track it down.  Otherwise, i think that i may have read everyone’s story so it’s on to something else now.  Have a great night all!

Playing innocent is easy.

After being the quiet, shy girl her whole life, Elise Markham is ready for a mental makeover. She’s done keeping to herself and staying out of trouble—it’s time to break out of her shell and maybe meet someone intriguing in the process. So, on a photography trip to Bluebonnet, she has a whole lot more on her mind than snapping photos, especially when Rome walks into the picture.

Playing dirty is fun.

The newest instructor at Wilderness Survival Expeditions has a colorful past, to say the least. Having come from a family of notorious con artists that destroyed his credit and reputation, all before his eighteenth birthday, Rome just wants a decent job and a quiet life in a town where no one knows his name. He’s exactly the kind of bad boy that an innocent girl like Elise should stay far away from.

But Elise is tired of doing what’s right. She’s ready to throw caution to the wind—and let Rome show her just how exciting being bad can be…

My Thoughts

There are so many folks for us to get into their stories for in this series, so it’s nice that we get to see what happens when Grant’s sister Elise crosses paths truly with Rome -their new employee.

From what you’ll remember from Grant’s story, Elise is in town with the family for a visit, and she’s quite the complex young lady.  We know that she’s really shy and reserved and that she has this past that we don’t know much about – she never went to school in town and that’s something that makes you take pause right?

She met Rome when he came to the ranch in search of a job, and he’s exactly the kind of bad boy that ideally would have been perfect for Brenna, but the sort of guy that makes Elise think and feel things that she’s never experienced before.

Her time back in Bluebonnet is an opportunity for her to stand on her own two feet, to be an adult since she’s been protected and sheltered by her parents her whole life.  Rome wakes something up inside her and if he’s strong enough to take on that challenge, what we’ll likely see is something intense and passionate.

The nice thing about this story is that where we had opposites in Grant and Brenna, there’s an even deeper level of opposites here with these two, and Rome is definitely not what he seems on the outside.  He’s got a past that’s shaped him into the kind of guy he is now, and all he wants to do is get by.  He’s not even searching for happiness anymore  just freedom.

In true form of our author, we get a sweet story more of romance than sex, which takes us in a different direction than the last installment.  there are true and real feelings that develop in this story and it’s really a question of when Grant’s going to find out and what that will mean since we know that he won’t approve.

Secrets are revealed, Rome’s past comes to haunt him in both the form of his brother and his parents, and you really don’t know what that’s going to mean for his sanity, his career and his hopes for ever being with Elise.

Elise on the other hand has a load of experiences that she wants to get under her belt – she really hasn’t done much in the form of living through her life and being with Rome and around the girls makes her take leaps that are so new to her.  I love the progression that we see her take and i love that the girl that we met in book 3 is not the same that we see towards the end of book 4.  It’s a sweet romance, but one that’s really destined not to work out.  Can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.

Being out of control…

The product of a rigid upbringing, Brenna has grown into a sexy free spirit who does things her way. No possessions, no debt, no man, and no rules to tie her down. And if she has to work, what better way than as assistant in a wilderness expedition team? So many opportunities to go wild.

…can be risky when you’re falling in love.

One person who doesn’t “get” Brenna is her boss, Grant. He prefers order and emotions kept in check, which means Brenna loves to push his boundaries. He’d be impossible to work for if he wasn’t so infuriatingly hot. But when his overbearing, matchmaking mother arrives in town, Brenna volunteers to be Grant’s pretend girlfriend. After all, it’s the perfect opportunity to drive Grant crazy at every turn.

Brenna’s just a little surprised when Grant agrees to her wild, impulsive schemes. And she’s more than a little surprised when their games take them to the bedroom…

My Thoughts

There’s been a lot building up to hearing Brenna’s story and Grant’s story so it’s nice that we got to finally have it all come to a head in this third full installment.  We’ve seen their pranks and teasing and it’s definitely a bit of foreplay (as his sister notes) but it takes Grant’s parents coming into town and meddling once again about how he needs to get over his wife who passed away five years prior that makes things actually change between then.

We know that Brenna is a free spirit and down for almost anything, so it’s her impulsiveness that changes the dynamic while letting them open up to all things that you can participate in when you’re ‘together’ but not together.

It’s so cliche to me when you start to read about characters who go into things with ‘no strings attached’ and no emotions in play since we’ve seen it time and time again that it just doesn’t work.  We saw it as recently as the first book with Miranda and Dane so it’s really no surprise when it blows up in their face.  In any event, the journey that we go on with them in the meantime is really fun to read.

We see that there are secrets in Brenna’s past that she’s not ready to share with anyone and yet is forced to open up about once things get complicated and deep.  Grant also has his own control issues that we learn about after a bit of time which makes it all make sense.

The nice thing though is that we’re quite easily distracted from all that when we get all of the amazingly sexy scenes that Ms Clare is known for.  I don’t know how she does it, but each couple has an interesting and unique dynamic that we get something totally different in each installment.  Here we have the sexiest dirty talk yet from Brenna, a girl who knows what she wants and asks for it.  And we have Grant who’s held himself back from everything for five years, and once he’s able to get back into the swing of things, he’s so sexy and steamy that it makes the story come alive.

The question of course becomes, we know that they started their relationship out of a lie, and i spent much of the book wondering if anyone would realize that it was a lie before the couple made an honest situation out of it.  You;ll have to read to find out, but know that there are questions of motives throughout and a lot of splitting up and running away.  I can’t wait to see what’s next.  We saw that Elise (Grant’s sister) has her own dark past, yet she’s got this amazing attraction to Rome (the new employee for their company) and his past is something of a mystery as well.  There’s going to be something great coming from their story and i can’t wait to see what that is.  Have a great night all!
