PROLOGUEThe moon hit that perfect point in the sky where its light trickled down and flooded the balcony, shining a beam of light into the bedroom. I peeled myself out from under Derrick’s arms, feeling the same drop in my stomach I felt every time he wasn’t touching me. I was a woman obsessed. I was also terrified of being separated from him again.

When he held me, I didn’t have nightmares. When his hands caressed me, the panic attacks ceased. With Derrick, I was able to forget what happened. I ached with the guilt of not telling him any parts of the ordeal. I knew it was killing him.

But I loved the way he looked at me now, like I was the key to his entire world. If I told him what Jason did to me, the things I’d done during the course of being held prisoner, that look would go away.

I couldn’t risk that.

I stepped onto the balcony, bathing in the moonlight. It was warm and there was a gentle breeze moving the clouds around. We moved to a new wing of the house and it was quieter here. The pool and pool house were right underneath us and I’d been dying to get back into it. Now that my ankle was fully healed, it seemed like a good idea.

There was no point in getting changed. No one ever swam in the pool anymore. I tiptoed down the stairs and padded across the grass to the stone slabs surrounding the sapphire tinted water. I let my nightgown fall off my shoulders and stepped gently down the stairs, wading out to waist level.

Spreading my arms out, I tilted my chin up, gazing at the stars as I fell back into the warm water.The temperature was perfect. I floated on my back, loving the weightless feeling it offered me.

God, how I needed to feel weightless. I didn’t allow myself to feel that way since coming home. There was too much blood on my hands, too many unanswered questions, too much left unsaid for me to spread that around for others to carry.

No, I would shoulder the weight of everything. It had to be this way.

I dove beneath the water, swimming a few laps before floating on my back. It helped soothe my grieving soul. My eyes burned from opening them underneath the water, so I stood in the shallow end rubbing them. Footsteps sounded on the stone behind.

Glancing over my naked shoulder, black boots stood at the edge of the pool near the deeper end. A smile tugged on my lips, assuming it was Derrick coming to join me. But I realized the body was different.

I began to tremble, my smile fading from my face.I recognized the all black outfit, complete with black gloves.

I opened my mouth to scream, but the man held a finger up to his lips, silencing me. Tears blurred my vision. I blinked at them, sending them splashing into the water surrounding me.

He found me.

He came back for me.

I wasn’t going to survive this time.

“Alina?” a voice called out.

Derrick walked out onto the balcony. He hadn’t come to the edge yet, so he couldn’t see me down in the pool. I swallowed, unable to form words from the sheer terror of what would happen next.

When I glanced back down, he was gone.

That was my warning.

He was never going to let me escape anyway.

He was coming back for what he owned.

Author: Nana Malone
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 Blurb

 

 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.

 

~My Review for Cheeky Royal~
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this story. Nana Malone is becoming one of my go-to authors!

This story is a refreshing story of the royal meets commoner and finds love. Sebastian is a prince with reasons of not wanting to be the prince anymore. SO when he is told that his father has two other children out there he takes it upon himself to go find them. He is hoping that maybe one of them will want to take the spot of King or Queen when the time is right.

Len is a Royal Guard. It isn’t her dream job, but something that comes with being in her family. So when the King asks for her to follow his son and befriend him to stay close, she is pretty sure she is not the right person for the job. But after having her heart broken she decides to take the job.

These two (Sebastian and Len) do have a history, but Sebastian doesn’t seem to recognize her. But it has been years. Len and Sebastian do have some wonderful chemistry in this story and it is a great story. There is some mystery surrounding Sebastian and the ending is just WOW. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Some brats like to break the rules,
Boys, fast cars, and skipping school.
But for dirty girls who flirt and tease,
Sometimes big daddies come in threes
 
She’s the forbidden fruit. The apple of temptation. The girl I never saw coming.
Too innocent. Too so-much-younger. Too much my student. Too much our student, actually.
Fate threw her in front of me. The feel of her lips on mine had me taking what In ever should have touched.
…My inability to walk away from trouble had me saving her when I should have let it be.
But now she’s here in my house – me, her college professor. And it’s not just meeither, there are three of us living here. Three big, rough, hardened older men – men twice her age.
…Men who can’t f*cking look away from the tempting little tease sleeping right down the hall.
But saving her or not, there are rules that she’ll follow under this roof. And when Cora Hartley decides she doesn’t need to follow them, she’s going to learn just how wrong she is.
 
Three men like us can only be teased and tested for so long, before she gets a firm hand of discipline.
 …Or three.
 Hang onto your tushies, we’re about to wild.
Don’t show your friends this book, they’ll probably judge you. Luckily, I won’t, and my lips are sealed ;).
 
Alpha af, wildly over-the-top, silly, steamy, and sweetenough to make your teeth hurt. This mfmm romance is all about her –no m/m. Safe, no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.
 Please note: this is a VERY loose sequel to Double Daddies, involving side characters from that book. You absolutely DO NO have to have read that book to fully enjoy this one though!

Four years of celibacy have turned Hunter Miles into a predator—a dangerous man. He’s horny. Hard. And coming home from college, he never expected to find Bailey Jones so tempting.

It’s an instant infatuation.

She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want—his little sister’s best friend. The last time he saw her she was a knobby-kneed little girl, but what welcomed him home was all woman—her decadent curves and a flirtatious smile tossed at him each time they are within arm’s reach.

She’s tempting.

Pushing.

Offering up her body to a man hanging by a very thin thread.

Fuck the consequences. He wanted her, and she was going to be in his bed by the end of the week.

Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world.
