Each royal duet Nana Malone writes just gets better and better!

Royal Tease was intriguing, seductive, and a completely alluring forbidden romance! If you’ve read the previous duets, Royals Undercover & Royals Undone, then you’ll know this is Jessa’s story. And just like the previous books, this story is full of unknown threats, secrets, and undeniable passion.

Jessa and Roone have a unique relationship. From the get-go, I was completely smitten with Roone. I mean, COME ON….a man who dedicates his life to protecting others, with a sexy, charismatic disposition, and anyone would have trouble not falling for him. Setting aside his charm and ruggedly handsome good looks, Roone was funny, a bit arrogant, and possessed a heart of gold. He can be my bodyguard ANY day! And Jessa was undoubtedly his equal. A strong, independent, and feisty character, she sure gave as good as she got when it came to Roone. I absolutely LOVE how the author writes her female characters as take-charge, intelligent, and tenacious women. A woman doesn’t need a man to always save the day. Sometimes, she can handle problems herself. Sometimes, she can face situations head on and get the job done. Sometimes, SHE can be the hero. And the author clearly writes her female characters that way, with heart, compassion, and grace.

The storyline embodies somewhat similar qualities as the previous duets. Danger lurks in the shadows and there are more questions than answers as to what, or who, the real threat is. The underlying suspense kept me wondering what was going to happen next. And as more and more was revealed, the more and more I was swept up in the story.

Emotional, thrilling, and passionate, Royal Tease was exactly the start I was hoping for from Jessa and Roone’s story. And after that EPIC cliffhanger I was left with, I’m dying for all the answers and for Teasing the Princess to mend my heart after this book shattered it to pieces.

5 Stars!

The plan was simple, go undercover, protect my best friend’s little sister. It should have been the easiest assignment of my life.

But Jessa isn’t your usual princess. She’s feisty, and sexy, and stubborn, and gorgeous. Did I mention she hates me? From the moment I carried her over my shoulder out of a bar fight, I’ve been persona non grata.

But the stakes are too high to mess this up. The monarchy is at risk.


I can’t stand Roone Ashcroft.

There I said it. Shoot me.

We go together like lightening and water. His annoying, steady obstinance is going to cost me my job. A job I have worked very hard to keep. No one is messing this up for me. I’ve had enough crazy in my life.

But even if I wanted him – which I don’t, but if I did – I can’t ever have him. My life is not my own. I’ve known that since birth.
