My Review – 4 Stars

First, let me say that I was incredibly excited to continue the Royals storyline that Nana Malone had created. I loved Lucas and his entry into the Winston family and was thrilled to see how this bad boy would turn his life around for the love of his brother and Bryna. Second, I was happy to see the continuation of Sebastian and Penny’s story in the first chapter. It was nice to witness such a special time in their lives and to hear it in their voices.

What a great start to Lucas and Bryna’s story! The author delivers an intriguing tale full of self discovery, sexual tension, deceit, and danger. And yes, I said start earlier. This is a duet and ends in a bit of a cliffhanger. In the first part of their story, we witness Lucas and Bryna finding their footing in their new lives as well as with each other. Lucas has been tasked with watching over Bryna, but it’s a struggle for them both as they fight their feelings in order to do what’s best for themselves. However, they quickly learn that it is easier said than done. But it was a valiant effort on their part. LOL! Beyond their relationship, they each have an opportunity to show the world, their families, and each other who they really are. It was wonderful to see Bryna stand her ground against her controlling parents and Lucas prove more to himself that he was worthy of someone like Bryna.

Bryna is a fabulous character. She is tough, smart, and independent. Yes, she has some insecurities and uncertainty when it comes to her love life, but Bryna has wonderful friends to help her realize she’s more than her past mistakes. She also has Lucas. He may be charming and cocky, but he’s also sincere in his support and love for her. Likewise, Bryna gives Lucas the strength to fight against his former nature and believe that he could be loved despite his sins.

With all the drama and unfinished plotlines, I’m excited to see where Nana takes us in the next half of Lucas and Bryna’s story.

Don’t get in trouble, they said. Don’t cause an incident. Oops.

I might be a newfound prince, but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to say goodbye to my days of freedom. So when my brother, the king, asks me to babysit a diplomat’s daughter, my first thought is to say no… that is until I see her climbing out of a window with her dress tucked into her thong.

She might just be my kind of girl.

I just thought I’d mix business with pleasure…I didn’t plan to lose control of my heart.


I’ve been groomed by my parents to climb the social ladder all my life and I’m done with it. I want nothing from their royal world.

Now that I’m finally on my own, I can live where I want, date who I want, do who I want.
The one person I won’t be doing? My new accidental roommate.

Oh, he’s gorgeous and mysterious, and cheeky. He’s also friends with the king and a total jackass.

So basically, he’s never gonna get it…famous last words.

I’ll never stop fighting for her…no matter the stakes.

A year ago I found out I was a long lost prince. But with one lie, that’s all been undone.
But prince or pauper, I’m not going to stop fighting for Bryna. She may be the only thing I can count on right now.

I never meant to get in so deep with my royal roommate—but in my defense I didn’t know.

If anyone else finds out his royal status my mother will meddle faster than you can say gold digger. More importantly, Lucas’s life could be in danger.

Because I’m not the only one with secrets.
And there’s a lot more at stake than heartbreak.

NOTE: This is a sequel – you must have read Royal Bastard to understand Bastard Prince!

About the Author:
USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

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.
