Author: Nana Malone
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.
This is the second part to the Heiress duet (book 1 reviewed here). While many of Ms Malone’s characters mix between books, the two books in this duet do work without reading the rest (although the to books in this duet do not stand alone from each other).
We ended book 1 with Neela finding out that Jax was not a nanny, and Ariel did not run a nanny company but they are a security team. This book picks up exactly where that one ended, with the aftermath of that discovery. After arguing about the situation, Neela soon realized that Mayzie does need the protection of Jax and Royal Elite. Neela and her team are trying to decipher the ledger that Willa left to her, and the threat to her and to Mayzie intensifies. But at the same time, more develops with Jax.
This was a fun, action packed read with several twists. It’s part suspense, part romance, but is also a story of family. Neela must learn hard truths about the family that raised her after her parents died. Jax must learn what family really means to him. Ariel must learn that family is determined by more than blood ties.
There is a secondary plot line revolving around King Sebastian that threads through several books, and continues in this one. I am interested in seeing how it plays out. The ending of this book sets up the next duet nicely, too, raising interest but not a cliffhanger.
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.
