A Nordic King by Karina Halle

A STANDALONE ROYAL ROMANCE

When I first applied for the job I thought it would be like all the others: working as a nanny for an aristocratic family.
Then I got the job and found out how wrong I was.

Now I’m the new nanny for two adorable little girls who happen to be princesses.

Their father is the widowed King of Denmark.
And my new home? The royal palace in Copenhagen.
Adjusting to my new life isn’t easy but the hardest part hasn’t been the girls who still grieve over the loss of their mother.

It’s their father.
Cold, mysterious and moody, with an icy stare that seems to penetrate your soul, King Aksel may have hired me to take care of his daughters but he wants as little to do with me as possible.

Yet the longer I share these palace walls with this man, the more that I’m drawn to him. His chiseled face and sexual swagger are only part of the package. It’s in the long, intense glances at the dinner table, the way we’ll brush up against each other in the halls, the rare glimpses of the man deep inside, like the sun passing through clouds.
But no matter how I feel about him, we can never be together.

You think it’s bad enough being in love with your boss?
Try falling in love with a king.

A Standalone Royal Romance Spin-Off

Fairy Loot
Mirage by Somaiya Daud

In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection…because one wrong move could lead to her death.

Ebook
Alice Anonymous by Sophie Davis

Alice lives under the radar, in her small Maryland town where nothing ever happens. And that’s how she likes it. But three months ago, her quiet life was upended when Trey Hensley moved to Mankton to attend the elite Mansfield Prep boarding school, bringing with him the paparazzi. And chaos. A whole lot of chaos.

Grace and Fury de Tracy Banghart

« Il était interdit aux femmes de lire. Il était interdit aux femmes de faire quoi que ce soit, vraiment. »

Toute sa vie, Serina a été formée pour devenir Grâce : une femme choisie pour son élégance, sa beauté, et pour se tenir aux côtés du roi. Cette année, c’est le prince héritier, Malachi, qui va choisir sa compagne. Serina se rend donc dans la capitale de Viridia accompagnée par sa sœur, Nomi, qui deviendra sa servante. La première y voit l’opportunité de sauver sa famille de la pauvreté ; la seconde n’y reconnaît qu’un exemple de plus de l’oppression des femmes.

Contre toute attente, c’est Nomi qui est choisie pour devenir Grâce. Mais elle cache aussi un lourd secret : elle sait lire, une activité interdite aux femmes de ce pays. Lorsque les deux sœurs sont surprises en possession d’un ouvrage que Nomi a volé dans la bibliothèque royale, Serina se dénonce aussitôt comme coupable. Elle est alors envoyée sur le mont aux Ruines : une île devenue prison pour femmes.

Si elle veut survivre, Serina devra s’endurcir. De son côté, Nomi la rebelle devra faire semblant de se soumettre aux règles du palais afin de gagner l’influence nécessaire pour délivrer sa sœur.

C’est un livre, caché dans les affaires de Nomi, qui lui fait entrevoir la vérité. Et si Viridia avait autrefois été dirigée par des femmes ? Si la personne qui lui avait laissé le livre était un allié ?
