Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world — just one — and his name is Zachariah Prince.

In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.

She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams.

It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible.

But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach.

Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

TEMPTING THE HEIRESS by Nana Malone is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing the release of Nana Malone’s second book in The Heiress Duet,  TEMPTING THE HEIRESS

 

#2 Tempting the Heiress 

One error in judgment. That is all it took.

They say don’t mix business with pleasure, but I fell in love with the client and now I’ve lost her.

But I would do it all over again if it meant keeping her safe.

Now I’ll have to fight like hell to earn her trust again. If I don’t, it could cost both of us everything.

And the author does it again. Protecting the Heiress set us up like pins in an alley, and then along came this one; the bowling ball that expertly knocked us all down for 10 points.

Poor Neela didn’t know whether she was coming or going in the first book, amp that up to a factor of ten and Neela is continuously scrambling for information behind the curve. Almost everything she believed in or knew was questioned or turned upside down. What should have been gone returns. Rash decisions and knee jerk reactions propel Neela down paths she may otherwise have never used. Taking chances and risking it all for the truth, or is the truth as clear cut as it seems?

Mysteries surround the ledger. Everyone wants the ledger but nobody knows what’s in it. Code cracking at its finest. Deception and lies go back and forth. Who would have thought a Winston Isles book without a Royal as the main character would be as intense as this was!

Bex and Adam were firm favourites of mine. They really were there to watch her back and support however or whenever they could. The interplay was so funny at times I couldn’t not chuckle to myself or roll my eyes.

Jax Reynolds; former Royal Guard turned Bodyguard is in so much hot water I expected his skin to redden like a lobster. How someone as smart as him couldn’t see how much of a huge hole he was digging himself, is beyond me. Someone should have taken the shovel off him a while ago. Miss Mayzie May had him wrapped around her pinkie before he could even unpack his bags. Truly priceless.

“You and Mayzie have become my whole world. You are my family. You are the ones who brought me back to life. I should never have discounted that. The only excuse I have is that love broadsided me, and I wasn’t ready. It wasn’t in the plan. All that was supposed to happen was I was supposed to protect the heiress, instead, I fell in love with the both of you.” 

Royal Elite is Ariel’s baby and as such she gets a whole lot of page time. Moving her story on in leaps and bounds, it most certainly is leading down an interesting path.

Along comes King Sebastian throwing all manner of wrenches into the machinery. He’s been up against The Council since jumping onto the big chair. Even though his happily ever after has been, these books still leave space for interplay and development of one of the fondest loved characters of Winston Isles.

The balance in any book of this author is sublimely done. Heavy and light. Romantic and intriguing. I am never disappointed and I just can’t stay away.

 

 

#1 Protecting the Heiress 

All I ever wanted was family. But one mistake cost me everything I’ve ever worked for.

To get it all back, I’ll have to return home and protect the most stubborn woman on the face of the planet. To do that effectively, I’ll need to go undercover as…a Manny.

I didn’t mean to fall for her or the kid. I really should have known better. When you get this close, it’s easy to get burned.

But I’ll do anything to protect them, even if it costs me everything…again.

KFF’S REVIEW

 

Meet Nana

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.

My first book by this author, this romantic thriller standalone is just up my alley, and a definite page-turner from the first chapter to the last.

Alta Johnson aka Birdie is a forest park ranger in Colorado, an introvert who ran away from a traumatic past. She is not much into people and would prefer the company of her best friend, Benny, a German Shepherd who is always by her side. When a woman goes missing in the park, she meets Cas and Chandler who take over the case. Her quiet existence soon turns into a whirlwind of surprises; emotions that are dormant for ten years start to resurface. Her life might be in danger or is it her heart that she needs to protect this time?

Cas Matthews is an ex-Marine and was recruited by his friend Chandler to work a special case with the FBI. His self-imposed solitude has served him well ever since his last deployment. Memories still haunt him every night and he doesn’t trust anyone but when he meets Birdie, unfamiliar feelings bubble up and start to crack the thick armour guarding his heart.

I love the fast-paced and seamless plot of this romantic thriller. Cas who is dark, brooding and volatile is the perfect match for the broken but tenacious Birdie.

“Like a siren’s call, her deeply buried darkness sang to my own. But was it a call to protect her from experiencing pain and fear again, or a luring of her dark passion that’s been waiting for the right spark to ignite the building want inside?” 

Written in dual points of view, the story of Cas and Birdie is a perfect combination of suspense, mystery and steamy romance. The author’s narrative style will keep you guessing who the bad guy is right until the last chapter and I thought I had it all figured out but I was proved wrong. The main characters are so engaging and I love that Benny, Alta’s protector plays quite a significant part in her life. This was a quick read for me and not because it is lightweight, but because I couldn’t put it down. I would also love to hear Chandler’s story; in fact, John deserves his own book too. Dang, the men in this tale are all so delish. Can I have all three, please? I highly recommend this book!

“Stay away from me, Lady.”

Her eyes met mine, daring her to push back. “What? I didn’t mean—”

“I’m not the man you think I am. I’m an asshole with more control issues than they can diagnose. I’m not a nice guy.”

“But I’m safe,” she whispered in a voice so fragile, it chipped at my resolve to stay away for her sake.

Fuck, that weak voice cracked every restraint I had. All she wanted to be was safe, and that was the one thing I could offer. “No one—I repeat, no one will touch you while I’m here. That is a fact you shouldn’t question.”

Her tight shoulders dropped, her lips parted in a relieved sigh. There was trust there, trust I hadn’t earned yet, but still she gave it—to me, a nobody.

Fuck it.

Narrowing my eyes, I crouched directly in front of her, inching closer until her back pressed against the brick hearth. Inches from her nose, I inhaled each of her shaky breaths, savoring the heated fear that pulsed off her as her eyes darkened with lust. She needed to be scared of me, to run in the opposite direction.

Still I dared another inch closer, hoping she’d push me off, praying she wouldn’t.

I slid a hand around the hot skin of her delicate neck.

“I don’t know how to be gentle, Lady,” I growled.

Her breath hitched at the minuscule squeeze of my fingers around her throat.

“What if I don’t want gentle?” she breathed.

“What do you want?”

Light brown brows pulled together in thought, but her hazel eyes stayed locked with mine. “You.”

AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT, the thrilling conclusion of the twisting, page-turning Perfect Gentlemen series by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake is live!

When a dangerous conspiracy threatens to tear them apart, he’ll have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the White House. He’s worked his whole life to become the leader of the free world—attending the right schools, marrying the perfect bride—all to aid his campaign. He didn’t realize someone behind the scenes has been pulling the strings to manipulate Zack and the country he loves into a dangerous position—one he will risk his life to wrench free from. The one thing he can’t risk is Elizabeth Matthews.

From the moment she met Zack Hayes, Liz felt the connection. Serving as his campaign manager and then his press secretary, she accepted that her love for him would remain unrequited. Still, she’d thought they were friends, so when he pushed her aside, she felt the stab in her heart. And when she realizes he’s done it to protect her, nothing will stop Liz from standing by his side—not even the men who would use her as a weapon against him.

As shocking secrets are revealed, Zack and Liz find succor and passion in each other’s arms. When the ultimate villain shows his face, Zack may have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Where on earth do I begin! I pre-ordered Overture since the synopsis not only sparked my interest, but the very thought of reading a forbidden romance revolving around a nobel instrument such as is the violin…well, I was sold. And I have to say as a frustrated musician, Warren’s research into and knowledge of the finer points of music is outstanding. So, when it hit my Kindle in the early hours of the morning; I picked it up and that was that! Everyone started to move except me! Those curious looks thrown my way went ignored. I’d begun the book and had no wish whatsoever to put it down, but was it worth supporting long faces and grumbles. No doubt about it!

The plot works up to a crescendo of incredible intensity. And if it were ever possible, between the staves and the sacrifice for pitches of perfection, secrets one could never have imagined lie. Answers to questions are masterfully convoluted evoking a sense of unrest and not just for the reader. Samantha’s wants to know more. Setting out on a quest to conquer the man she’s loved for what seemed like forever, I must say her resourcefulness to draw attention to herself worked wonders.

Young, talented and determined, Samantha has yet to take the world by storm. She’s been schooled to study, has dexterity and stamina in abundance despite lacking in a few life skills. I have no wish to divulge the reasons why she’d been overly protected by her guardian; however, I couldn’t help but fall hard for this lass whose innocent demeanour I found such a becoming trait. In contrast, I think there’s much more to be said about her sad childhood.

‘Growing up isn’t about learning something new. It’s about unlearning the fairy tales you believed as a child.’ 

For me, Liam is the perfect gentleman. Ex-military, gorgeous, commanding and quite a bit older than Samantha, he’d cease to be her ward when she reaches legal age. Liam’s is torn between love, guilt and duty. His oh-so troubled soul stirred my emotions and I thought if anyone deserved happiness, it was him. Unfortunately, what I wanted and what the author had in mind were completely different things altogether. You won’t hear me complaining though.

“I’m not fighting demons, sweetheart. I am one.” 

Regardless of the age difference or the complex situation they were in, I never felt uncomfortable with Liam and Samantha’s inner thoughts which believe you me, they are titillating and heart-wrenching all in one.

“Then how do you think of me?”
‘My greatest pride and my deepest regret.’
 

Now, whether you like cliffhangers or not in my honest opinion, Liam and Samantha’s story just has to go on because firstly, I didn’t want the book to finish and secondly, goodness me…the intrigue. Being left up in the air often gets the better of me but for once, my only desire was to get my hands on the follow-up, Concerto. Coming in the middle of May, it couldn’t come sooner. Newbie to Warren’s writing, while chatting to book buddies about this book, many of her novels have been recommended to me, so it’s highly likely I’ll be pushing them to the top of my TBR list. Beautifully written, Overture is a without a doubt, a must-one-click. Bravo!

Excerpt

“I’m going to tour the country. The world. I’m leaving, Liam.”

He looks away. “Christ.”

Unease moves through me. “Did you really think I wouldn’t come back?”

“I don’t know why you would want to.”

“Because I care about you.” Liam is six feet of pure muscle and hard will. There’s no way someone like me could go up against him and win. Except that when I take a step closer, he tenses. Another step and he goes still as stone. It gives me a sense of power, enough that I take the final step. “I care about you even though you’re controlling.”

There’s only an inch between the ruffle of my blouse and the flat of his abs.

“You think I’m going to apologize for keeping you safe?” he mutters. “You think I give a damn that you’re mad at me as long as you’re in one piece? That’s the only thing that matters.”

“Because you think of me like a daughter?”

He shakes his head slowly, not breaking eye contact. “No.”

“No?” I whisper.
