#Review “His Inherited Princess (Royal House of Saene Bk 2)” by Empi Baryeh

RHOSAENE tour banner

~~~

5/5 Stars!

India Saene feels she’s fallen down a patriarchal rabbit hole when she wakes from a coma to find herself married to her husband’s brother, Omar, the new would-be king. A tragic car accident only hours after her wedding has left the independent, educated woman a widow… and an inherited wife.

She’d agreed to the first arranged marriage out of service to her country, but she’d had no say in the second. To complicate matters, she can’t leave the marriage without devastating her country and insulting her husband’s country, and Omar finds evidence his brother’s death may have been murder… and India could be involved.

Explaining to Omar why she looks guilty would put others in danger and India isn’t prepared to do that. But danger is closer to her than she realizes.

India is also intensely drawn to and developing feelings for Omar… two things she hadn’t had for his brother. Finding he has feelings for her doesn’t lessen India’s misery.

As Omar works to clear India’s name, he’s blindsided when he’s challenged for the throne by his uncle.

India and Omar are great characters who maybe both have a bit too much pride. They can’t move forward without dropping their guard and it seems near impossible for them. This sensual romance is a bumpy ride with a couple of plot twists you won’t see coming, and a good case of crazy for the books.

Book two in the Royal House of Saene series delivers mystery, suspense, and romance and I highly recommend it!

Enjoy!

#Review “His Defiant Princess (Royal House of Saene Bk 1)” by Nana Prah

RHOSAENE tour banner

~~~

5/5 Stars!

After traveling five-thousand miles from Vermont to West Africa to meet the woman he’s spent the last year getting to know online, Jake Pettersen is more than a little shocked to find out she’s a royal princess.

Enjoying being a regular person with Jake, Amira Saene hid her true identity, never being able to confess her lie of omission even as Jake’s arrival to the kingdom of Bagumi grows closer.

Not getting the meeting or greeting he’d hope for from the woman who’d stolen his heart, the young dentist soon learns his lack of wealth or status… or royal blood makes him unworthy of Amira in every way.

End of story, right?

Not even close.

Accompanied by his best friend and business partner, Calvin (whom I absolutely adored!), Jake stays and continues his vacation and chaperoned time with Amira.

It’s obvious the feelings Jake and Amira have for each other are real, and just when it looks like they’ll figure it all out, drama and conflict arrive together, and we’ll call them Duak—a prince and future king of a neighboring country.

Every story has that character you want to punch in the face, and in this story it’s Duak.

But even with the dark shadow Duak casts over the story… and Jake and Amira’s chance at happiness, help shows up from the unlikeliest of places and takes this read in another direction.

Will these two walk away from each other or is what they have worth fighting for? Amira will learn a lot about herself and the people she loves the most, but it may be too little too late.

His Defiant Princess has just the right amount of sweetness and spice, but it’s the romance that makes this read shine. This couple spent their online time really getting to know each other, sharing things they shared with no one else. Their hearts connected long before they met.

Amira and Jake are strong, well-developed characters. Jake isn’t diminished by the reversal of power, instead, he rises to the occasion. They have a great supporting cast, with Amira’s brother, Zareb, and mother, Queen Zulekha, as standouts. And, of course, Jake’s BFF, Calvin. (Did I mention I adore him?)

Pay a visit to the kingdom of Bagumi where the women are fierce, the men are protective, and the last thing you want to do is cross a member of the Royal House of Saene.

Enjoy!

The Royal House of Saene: Princess Amira

His Defiant Princess

his defiant princess by nana prah (book one)

Princess Amira Saene has always done the right thing when it came to her beloved Kingdom of Bagumi. Yet her unorthodox online relationship with a man across the sea has derailed her from cultural norms. After a year of communicating, the man she’s developed feelings for comes to visit.
Jake Pettersen never thought he’d meet the woman of his dreams, much less online. Flying thousands of miles to West Africa to meet her verifies that the feelings he’s developed are real. Too bad her family doesn’t think he’s worthy of her.
When Jake learns that Amira has been betrothed, he must decide whether to fight for her or accept the loss for the sake of her homeland. Is their happiness worth the devastation of her country?

#CoverReveal “The Beautiful Years III: A Mafia Romance Saga” by Annie Rose Welch

Title: The Beautiful Years Part III
Author: Annie Rose Welch
Genre:Contemporary/ Mafia Romance

Release Date: February 7, 2019
Cover Designer: Buoni Amici Press
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

There was one secret that I kept from my wife.

The Fausti famiglia was one of the most infamous and powerful crime families in the world. Their rule spanned the thickness of history books.

And I was one of them.

I was the estranged son of the most ruthless man in the monarchy, Lucious Leone Fausti. Only a murderous technicality kept me out of his reach, but there was never any doubt that I belonged to him. I saw his reflection in every mirror. The darkness that lived in his eyes lived in mine.

My dangerous lineage had been hidden until my wife, Scarlett, the curious farfalle that she was, started fluttering around the sleeping giant. She awakened the monsters of my past, and they would stop at nothing to claim what they felt belonged to them.

Using my wife as a pawn in their game to lure me in? Wasn’t going to happen. They underestimated this monster they had created. I’d sacrifice it all to keep the woman I called mine safe—even if it meant my life.

La mia parola è buona quanto il mio sangue. My word is as good as my blood.

Book III in a seven-part Mafia Romance saga.

 

 

 

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her passion for writing began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightning bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.

When she’s not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently resides in Texas (where everything really is bigger) with her husband, daughter, and their three peculiar dogs, Boudreaux, Tabasco, and Vanna Loo (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).

When cowardly and shy village boy, Andrew Godfrey, loses the girl of his dreams to an unexpected death, he finds her soul captured in a household mirror. In an act of desperation, he flees the town with the mirror, escaping a long lasting fear of his cold mother and a grim looking future. He eventually stumbles upon the Larouche Hotel, which bears the whispered description of being the most sinfully wonderful place around.

At first, his newfound sanctuary offers him not only a roof over his head, but pleasures far beyond those he could imagine. Soon, he begins to spiral into a world where he no longer recognizes his own reflection and, in an attempt to rescue the imprisoned soul of the woman he loves, he realizes the person he really needs to save is himself. Through the eyes of the young man, we witness the hotel patrons fall into a world where good versus evil is so entwined, one begins to look like the other.

With the aid of a mysterious man in black who keeps his cursed daughter hidden from the guests, Andrew searches for the narrow path to goodness directly in the eyes of evil. It’s up to him to secure not only his own life, but the lives of his friends that have fallen into the darkness as well.
