I never asked for my tiara.
My dreams were always bigger than a palace. They're as big as the world.
Being fourth in line for the throne should have guaranteed me freedom.
I thought I was one step from walking away forever, but a long-forgotten rule forces me to run instead.
I refuse to marry a Duke and bear an heir to save our titles.
I trust my brothers to find a way to save my future, but first I need to save myself.
Only I never expected to meet danger...and Kannon Adams along the way.
I never asked for her.
My security business has secured all the clueless princess types I can handle.
Princess London Waterford of Alden is a whole other level of trouble.
Not to mention gorgeous and tempting as royal sin. Too bad she's also in danger.
When the bullets fly, I trust no one else to protect her, even if she pushes me away.
Together, we must find who's behind the threat to her life and try not to get caught in the crossfire.
One night together might never be enough, but if those who want her dead have a say, it'll be our last.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Nana Malone and Carrie Ann Ryan...writing together....YES! A little royal romantic suspense...double yes!
I liked London a whole lot. She was more than the princess persona everyone made her out to be. She was kind and compassionate. Adventurous and bold. And even though it wasn't what she wanted to do, she listened when her brothers put a plan into motion to keep her from being the fall guy for something out of their control. Which is exactly how she meets Kannon.
I'm not going to lie, my feelings on Kannon went back and forth the whole book. He took broody to a whole new level and was so hot and cold towards London. Unnecessarily so. Yes, he had loved and lost in a big way and was still stuck in the guilt of it, but his fear was no excuse for the way he treated London.
But when the danger hits level ten, all bets are off. Kannon pulled out all the stops to find London and ensure her safety. And when the mask was lifted and all was revealed as to who was behind the attempt on her life, it was shocker city (though I had a feeling it was this person early on).
Royal line was dangerous and witty, steamy and twisty. I especially enjoyed London's brothers giving Kannon the third degree. This quasi enemies-to-lovers romance was a good setup for what I'm sure is going to be a fun series.
Meet the Authors
USA Today Bestseller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was 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.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion, and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
