***RELEASE BLITZ*** Royal Bastard by Nana Malone

Reactions: 
Royal Bastard by Nana Malone is AVAILABLE NOW!
“I’m so ridiculously charmed and addicted I don’t know what to do with myself! Next book please! -#1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken
Lucas… Don’t get in trouble, they said. Don’t cause an incident. Oops. I might be a newfound prince, but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to say goodbye to my days of freedom. So when my brother, the king, asks me to babysit a diplomat’s daughter, my first thought is to say no… that is until I see her climbing out of a window with her dress tucked into her thong. She might just be my kind of girl. I just thought I'd mix business with pleasure...I didn’t plan to lose control of my heart. Bryna… I’ve been groomed by my parents to climb the social ladder all my life and I’m done with it. I want nothing from their royal world. Now that I’m finally on my own, I can live where I want, date who I want, do who I want. The one person I won’t be doing? My new accidental roommate. Oh, he’s gorgeous and mysterious, and cheeky. He’s also friends with the king and a total jackass. So basically, he’s never gonna get it...famous last words. (Book 1, Royals Undone)

Review

OK so i'm an idiot!! I didn't know there were two books before this!!! ahhhhhhhhh!!  My annoyed with myself'o'meter is off the charts!  Anyhoo despite this i can honestly say that you can read this as a standalone phewwww although i will now be going back to before the second part of this comes out!

Lucas has recently found out he's a Prince.  The brother he never knew has become king and got the Princess.  He knows his life will never follow the same path even if he now has all the luxuries that come with being a Prince.  He no longer has to con to get money but his past is still there lingering under the surface of a charming playboy. 

Bryna is trying to escape her privileged life.  Controlled by her parents for most of her life she needs to break free.  She want's to be independent and have her own life but that's easier said than done.  Fate seems to keep throwing things in her path to push her back to her parents. 

Her savior comes in the form of Lucas.  The one she knows she should stay away from.  The one that will break her if she get's too close. 

He's not capable of love.  She's afraid of it.  Can their crazy attraction be enough for either of them?  Their pasts may just put a stop to their future.

So my Nana virginity has been popped!! An i have to say i'm very impressed!

As i said i stupidly missed the first duet and had a little panic at the start that i had missed too much of the storyline, but after this i settled into the story and picked up the bits i needed to know along the way. 

Lucas is totally a new book boyfriend and i'd definitely recommend you try this badboy on for size!! Yum Meeeee!!! You could see through his persona right down to his very delectable soul!  He's really kinda sweet.  And i loved his hero side where he swoops in and save Bryna from whatever she needed protecting from, an although he's a bit alpha he's not full on a hole about it.  My fave scene has to be where he's giving her a mani/pedi... Painting her nails...i mean... darn if a man does that for you be prepared to hand over your heart!

Bryna often had me giggling at her.  She was kind of naive i guess having had a privileged life made her this way, well that and her parents, but i found myself feeling sorry for her despite this.  She just wanted out and her parents refused to accept this.  Now i have my theories on this but i'm gonna wait till the next book before saying. 

I loved how well the storyline flowed.  It was an incredible slow burn.  At times it felt as though the static was going to set my kindle on fire! When it finally happens you too may find yourself sighing in relief!

The writing was amazing and i immediately slipped straight into it.  Sometimes with new authors you have to get used to their style but this was so easy it was like i'd read every book Nana has wrote!

All the characters were engaging and i find myself hoping for a few more books after this duet in the form of Lucas' bodyguards Roone and Marcus!

Very pleasantly surprised.  Highly recommend.  You can read as is but if like me you like to know the back story then read Cheeky Royal and Cheeky King.  Just like i'm about to!

Bastard Prince will release on September 4th!
I'll never stop fighting for her...no matter the stakes. Lucas… A year ago I found out I was a long lost prince. But with one lie, that’s all been undone. But prince or pauper, I’m not going to stop fighting for Bryna. She may be the only thing I can count on right now. Bryna… I never meant to get in so deep with my royal roommate—but in my defense I didn't know. If anyone else finds out his royal status my mother will meddle faster than you can say gold digger. More importantly, Lucas’s life could be in danger. Because I’m not the only one with secrets. And there’s a lot more at stake than heartbreak. NOTE: This is a sequel - you must have read Royal Bastard to understand Bastard Prince! About the Author: 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. Want to hit me up?
