In His Court By Max Rowan

Rosavia Royals, Book 4

RR-4-InHisCourt-Rowan-Medium
A spy prince needs a man who sees through his disguise.

Prince Benedict is not what he seems. His image as a lazy playboy is carefully constructed to hide the truth. Trained since childhood to become Rosavia’s top spy, he spends his life in disguise—and danger—to protect his country. Nobody sees the loneliness in his heart.

Felix Wright is a genius with four degrees, no real-world experience, and a top-secret job… and he’s never even been kissed. A lifetime of being alienated for his most valuable assets has left him reluctant to trust the charming prince who thrusts him into fieldwork for the very first time.

When the Crown Jewels are stolen two weeks before the royal ball, it’s their job to save the country’s reputation. Benedict helps Felix believe in himself, while Felix slowly coaxes the real prince out of hiding. But can they find the jewels and rescue the most priceless treasures of all: each other?

Exclusive from Max & the Inspirations behind her Prince

How did you become a part of this project/world?
I was part of the creation of Men of Hidden Creek, so when I was approached about starting a new shared universe about a small European country, the offer coincided with my availability, and so I leaped at the chance.

Where did your story’s inspiration come from?
I took a lot of my inspiration from the cover. He looks very serious, doesn’t he? I wanted to build on why such a young prince looks like he’s carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders, and since I like to write what I know – intelligence agencies – the fact that this prince was actually one of Rosavia’s top spies just clicked into place.

Of course, as we all know, an agent is nothing without his tools, and so creating his equal and yet very opposite seemed so obvious to me. And so grew the story of a highly trained secret agent and the prodigal genius who designs and makes those tools for him, and the way they butt heads when they’re forced to work together.

I think this is the best book I’ve written so far. Benedict and Felix are special to me. I hope they will be to you, too.

How did you create your Prince?
Benedict very much came to life for me when I sat down to write the prologue. By then I had worked out his past, how he came to be a spy while also being a high-profile member of the royal family. I’d researched European royal families and their ties to their countries’ militaries, so making Benedict secretly a spy while the whole country believed he was actually part of Rosavia’s army made sense to me. But his personality – what that enormous responsibility and the intensive training had done to make him the young man he is today – really settled in when I began to write. All the little details came together to build this intensely competent agent whose life is kept secret even from his own brothers, and the sense of duty and yet aching loneliness that created in him shone right from the start.

Book 1: Up for Heir By Stella Starling

1

A playboy heir needs a man to marry, right now.

After spending half his life dodging his duty to the crown, the rebel heir to the Rosavian throne has been told in no uncertain terms that it’s time to settle down. Crown Prince Leopold has one month and a vetted list of suitable princesses, and he will announce his engagement during Rosavia’s Royal Ball. But Leo’s got his own ideas about what really suits him…

Royal Librarian Edvin Blom is good at not attracting attention. Shy and self-conscious of his stutter, he’s used to being overlooked and more than happy to stay in the background. At least, until the crown prince with a wild reputation shows up at the library’s new opening and decides to flirt with Edvin’s sister…

Edvin isn’t at all what Leo thought he wanted, but turns out to be everything he can’t stay away from. Edvin’s been burned by falling for someone out of his league before, though. And believing that Leo has really fallen for him? While Edvin’s drowning in his own doubts and insecurities, that might prove impossible… unless love gives them both a reason to come up for air.

Book 2: Reign or Shine By HJ Welch

2

A secret prince needs a lost tourist to save.

Prince Cassander is on vacation from his overdeveloped sense of duty. While hiding out as simply ‘Cas’ in the Rosavian capital, he rescues a gorgeous, distressed American tourist. Matty has no idea that Cas is second in line to the throne. And with only two weeks together to explore the sparks between them, he doesn’t need to ever find out.

New Yorker Matty Doyle is a fish out of water, taking care of his niece and mending his broken heart. When Cas rescues him, the handsome stranger coaxes Matty out of his shell and he throws caution to the wind. Nobody knows him here. Would it hurt to live a little for once?

But a prince can’t stay secret in his own country for long. Cas would give anything to protect Matty from reality, but how can this fantasy together continue when they belong in different worlds?

Book 3: Throne Together By Zoe Dawn

3

A pining prince needs: a second chance at love.

Prince Julius has only ever wanted one man. Raised alongside Prince Dante of Thedes, the two were inseparable until their unspoken mutual attraction ignited into a single passionate encounter. Convinced that it ruined their friendship, Julius retreated to his duties in Rosavia, where he daydreams of another chance to win Dante’s heart.

After four years apart, fate brings Prince Julius back to Thedes. He offers Dante a coveted invitation: return to the Rosavian palace for ten days, and be his plus-one to the Royal Ball of the century. Before long, they realize one night of passion wasn’t enough, and they can’t imagine losing each other again.

As the clock ticks down to the ball, Julius catches wind of Dante’s family meddling, and he must decide if their feelings are real or if they’ve both been played. Were they always meant for each other, or is it all an illusion that will melt away at midnight?

Book 5: Barely Regal By E. Davies

5
A bratty boy prince needs a firm but fair Daddy.

Prince Renford is a royal brat. Nineteen and last in line for the throne, Wren hates his made-up job: Commander of Roses. Good thing his long-time valet has a firm hand—if only Wren could tempt him to break all palace protocol and use it.

Thom Pierce is sixteen years older. Old enough to know he should ignore his prince’s less-than-subtle flirtation. He’s been burned by a higher-ranked boy before. His job and reputation are at stake if the palace catches a scandal unfolding under their noses.

Wren needs the part of Thom that he’s kept locked away for years. If the young prince wants to be taken as seriously as his older brothers, he has to grow up fast. Thom’s rules could help Wren become the man Thom knows he can be in time for the Royal Ball… or they could attract the very attention that forces them apart forever.

Myrtle’s aunt is dead—murdered—and she has inherited the Witch’s Retreat, a Bed and Breakfast in the idyllic village of Avebury. Filled with outrageous characters, the old house hides a mystery under its eaves. Everybody is a suspect: Alan, the blue-eyed police constable; Chris, the proverbial dark and handsome stranger; Myrtle’s curvy cousin Daisy; and even Tiddles, the flatulent cat. As Myrtle takes on the mantle of amateur sleuth, she bumbles along in search of answers, digging deeper and deeper among the tangled roots of her family’s history. The secrets she uncovers are more shocking than death: a hidden magical relic, a coven of amateur witches eager to gather her into the fold, and modern witch hunters on the prowl.

Kate ran, planning to leave behind a shell of a life, giving herself strict rules to live by in order to keep the past hidden. But these rules have her trading one prison for another.

Then Kai sneaks into her life, shoving through her shields, getting her to break every one of her rules. An unexpected surprise threatens to unravel her secrets and strip away the control she fought so hard for. But she embraces it, diving into the unknown with Kai.

When her past catches up with her, she battles to keep those she has come to love protected, refusing to relent the strength she found within. But when stuck in a place she never wants to return to and with no chance of escape, she fears losing everything she’s allowed herself to cherish.



I thumped to the ground on the other side of the fence, steadying myself just before I toppled over. The familiar damp, mucky scent of the creek hit me right before I got to it. My pace didn’t slow even after I ran over the worn log that was my bridge to get across the creek, which was still part of our property, only outside the fence. Then I was off for the highway, leaving the luxurious plantation behind me. No more would I follow their rules. No more would I dress up for Mother’s popularity contests. No more would I allow them to decide my fate. 
My fate would be my own. 
Delia was parked at the edge of our property in her station wagon Volvo, just as she had promised. The Rankin’s Movin’ On assaulted my eardrums when I opened the door. My heart squeezed in my chest, tears pricking at my eyes. But I shoved all fear away when I climbed in that front seat. Delia had a lit cigarette held out toward me the second I had the door shut. 
“Ready, sha?” she asked as I took a long drag of that Joe, nerves and excitement thrumming through my veins. 
“Damn right, I’m ready!” 
We screamed in excitement when she squealed away from my life trap. “I got an entire album made up for this getaway.” She wagged her dark brows at me, her springy brown hair bouncing as she wiggled to the beat of the song. 
We danced and sang, even while tension grew in my chest as the border of the state came closer and closer. 
Her gaze jumped between my eyes and lips, eyes and lips. My blood boiled. I was going to devour her. But I gritted my teeth to keep from doing so. I’d already gone to her over and over, made every move. It was about time she did the moving.
And she did.
Leaning over the armrest, she brushed her soft lips over mine. The sharp breath I sucked in couldn’t be stopped. Blood rushed through my veins, my pulse pounding in my ears. I wanted to gobble her up but again stayed my hand. She pulled back slightly, and I bit my cheek to keep from grabbing that braid and crushing my mouth back to hers.
“Oh, and I forgot to add, no more being a jackass,” she murmured against my lips, and my heart sang.
I fucking adored her.
I chuckled darkly, muttering, “Now that’s one thing I cannot abide,” before snaking that braid around my hand and brushing my lips against hers.

Excerpt

“What happened to your flowers?” Jonah suddenly asked, opening the can of worms he’d vowed to leave alone. Avery only gaped at him unblinkingly. Who could blame him? The question had come out of nowhere. “My flowers?” “The ones Romeo brought you. I caught you making heart eyes at them every time I stepped out of my office yesterday.” “Don’t be ridiculous,” Avery scoffed. “I took them to my grandmother.” Of all the possible things Avery could’ve said, Jonah hadn’t been expecting this one. “Why?” Avery released a deep sigh. “I told you he wasn’t the guy for me.” It was Jonah’s turn to just stare. “Here was this handsome, successful guy who seemed to be interested in me, but I felt…nothing. No spark.” Jonah snorted, and Avery scowled. “What the hell is that supposed to mean?” Avery asked. “No spark?” Jonah asked. “I’d hate to see how you return from a lunch date when you do feel chemistry with a man.” Avery stiffened in his chair. “What are you talking about?” “Come on, Avery. Flushed cheeks and swollen lips. I recognize the signs of someone who has been thoroughly kissed…or more.” “You th-th-thought I… that we…” Avery stammered. He swallowed hard and briefly closed his eyes. “You’re an idiot, Jonah. My pink cheeks and puffy lips were a result of a medical condition.” Jonah raised a brow. “Is that what they’re calling it these days?” “I had an allergic reaction to my lunch, asshole,” Avery practically shouted. “I didn’t see the little bites of heaven in my salad until it was too late.” “Little bites of heaven?” “Avocado,” Avery said. “I was stuffing my face while my date talked about his job. Suddenly, I noticed my face felt numb, and my lips were tingling. I shifted the lettuce around in my bowl and found the cause.” Jonah buried his face in his hands. “I’m the biggest dick on the planet.” “This isn’t the time to brag about your dick size, Jonah,” Avery chastised.

Royally Screwed by Lynn Van Dorn

lvd-rs-eBook

Take one betrothal gone awry…

Prince Angelo is destined to marry Prince Yuri. Never mind that Angelo isn’t gay and didn’t choose to be saddled with a moony-eyed princeling who is determined to ruin Angelo’s life. Then one day Yuri goes too far and Angelo has to take matters into his own hands.

Add one doomed arranged marriage…

Prince Yuri is destined forever to pine after Prince Angelo. Arranged marriages are archaic and awful enough without being stuck for life with someone you want who will never, ever in a million years want you back. Still, for someone who claims to want nothing to do with Yuri, Angelo is surprisingly possessive.

And you just might get one unexpected romance.

Two men, thrown together by fate and scheming parents, shouldn’t have a prayer of finding a happy ever after. But fate can be fickle, and love can exist where you never thought it could.

Royally Screwed is a 75,000-word M/M novel featuring royalty, a poorly-thought-out betrothal, one prince in need of a firm hand, a second prince who isn’t as straight as he always thought, drunken texting, bickering, practice kissing, odious British nobility, and falling in love despite all the reasons why you shouldn’t.

Teaser 1

Excerpt:

“I’m going to be your husband,” Angelo said, “sooner or later, like it or not. What’s the point in putting it all off?”

Yuri raised one finely shaped brown eyebrow. “So you’re cool with not having sex again for like… ever? Or kissing or holding hands, even? Because I’m not. I’ll go mad. I’m not ready yet. It’s way too soon.” He looked at Angelo like he was an animal caught in a trap, terrified and half-crazed to escape in any way it could, even if that meant chewing through a limb.

Angelo rubbed Yuri’s shoulder tentatively. “I know,” he said soberly. “I’ve been thinking about it for days.”

The idea of Yuri putting himself again into the hands of Francis, or someone like him, terrified Angelo. It didn’t matter that Yuri was gay and Angelo wasn’t. Someone needed to protect Yuri and that someone was Angelo. Would always be Angelo. Yuri was his curse and his cross to bear and his inevitable destiny. And despite years of resentment and irritation and anger, that still made Yuri his.

Yuri relaxed his stiffened posture enough to slump against Angelo. “Angel, it’s a really stupid idea. We’ll keep going on as we are. We’ve got years to date and ‘fall in love.’ No point rushing it. You’ll have to pretend your whole life. Be discreet when you need to fuck someone. You won’t be allowed to fall in love, and if you do, you’ll never be able to act on it. I get you’re feeling overprotective and cave mannish, but you don’t need to be. I’ll be way more careful next time. I’ll find someone who can hurt me, but not hurt me. Those men exist. I know they do. Let me find one and live before my freedom is completely gone.”

Nervous fear dumped adrenaline into Angelo’s bloodstream. It made him want to do something—anything—to make things better. “I can do that,” Angelo burst out, licking his dry lips. “I can be that man. For you. For this.”

“Do what, be what?” Yuri put his mobile aside and gave Angelo his full attention, spearing him with crystalline blue eyes. “You’re. Not. Gay.”

“Um. I can hold your hand. In public.”

Yuri rolled his eyes. “Seriously? I can see you sweat from just the thought of it. What about the rest? Can you really kiss me in front of others? Pretend for the rest of your life to be in love with me? Do you have any clue what this’ll mean? I don’t think you do. You don’t have to protect me. I’m fine. Francis was a huge mistake, but I’m fine. Go home to your college and your girlfriend and forget about me for a few years. I don’t want this, you big idiot!”

Yuri was angry and impatient, that was clear enough, but under that, Angelo thought he sensed fear as well. And he caught the use of Angel. Yuri called him that so seldom he felt he could count the times on one hand, but tonight he’d used it twice.

“It doesn’t matter what we want, does it, though? What if I say, ‘Fine, go find some perfect guy to spank and fuck you. I’ll see you in five years,’ and then you fall in love? What’re you going to do then? Break your heart and his? There’s no way waiting will make things better, or easier. I can’t… be everything you need and you’re not what I want, either, but I can do my best to try. If it means I have to learn to kiss you, then I’ll learn to kiss you, but damn it, princess, I’m not going to let anyone hurt you like this anymore.”

Yuri crossed his arms over his chest. “I don’t believe you. I don’t think you have the stomach for it.”

Part of Angelo knew he was being goaded but he didn’t care. He cupped Yuri’s face and looked into eyes that were panicky, but something else as well. Yuri’s gaze felt like it could bore holes into his soul. “Relax, princess. I can’t do this if you won’t relax.”

“Fuck me,” Yuri said. “This isn’t real. And I didn’t mean that literally. Don’t get your straight-boy hopes up.”

“I wouldn’t dream of it,” Angelo said, leaning closer to whisper in Yuri’s ear. He dropped a light, experimental kiss on the side of Yuri’s jaw. Under his fingers, the prince shuddered.

There. That hadn’t been so bad. This would be easier than Angelo had thought. With his cupped hands, he positioned Yuri’s face exactly where he wanted it, then kissed him. It was… unexpected. It wasn’t at all the disgusting thing he’d thought it might be. This he could definitely do. Everything would be fine. And just to prove it, he kissed Yuri again. And again. And again. Because practice made perfect.

Excerpt

Standing right there in bare feet, white tattoo-exposing tank, white basketball shorts with an orange stripe down the side, with his blond hair so precisely bed-headed it had to be on purpose, and a gold chain that was the icing on the cake of a look every fashion and celebrity magazine called “douchecore” was Justin Beckett. From the band Sunset Boys. That Justin. From the cover of GQ. Twice before age twenty-two. I considered myself too much of an adult to listen to his music, but I wasn’t dead. The Sunset Boys breakup that spring had drowned Twitter in sobs and DMZ in clicks. Justin Beckett, with his ghostly pale-blue eyes, had been the front man who’d thrown it all away for a crazy night at the Roosevelt Hotel. There had been a party at the pool. He’d beaten a bandmate bloody, gotten caught with another bandmate’s wife and a bunch of drugs in a hotel bathroom. It was impossibly salacious. Like watching a car wreck where everyone was fine except the one guy who deserved to get hurt. The clean-cut, silky-smooth boy in the band wasn’t so silky smooth anymore. Maybe it was the rough night at the Roosevelt. Maybe it was just adulthood, but he’d transformed into a fully muscled, square-jawed man. His size and presence dazed me. “Weeze,” he said to his grandmother. “Who is this person?” Louise gathered the smooth stems into a bouquet and put on her glasses. “You’re such a big deal you don’t even know your own assistant?” He shot his gaze to me. “All right.” He snapped his fingers and pointed to the door. “Get the hell out.” “Wait,” I snapped. I didn’t want to stay, but I wanted my money. “I mean it. You got this far. Now get out.” “You don’t have to be so rude,” Louise said, inspecting a stem. He grabbed my upper arm and pulled me out. “Don’t touch me!” Ignoring me, he opened the door and pushed me outside, joining me in his bare feet and closing the door behind us. “How did you find me?” he demanded, letting me go. “I wasn’t looking for you!” “You one of the ones who parked on Laurel Crest?” He pointed to some street over thataway that I was supposed to know. “Because you’re violating an order of protection.” “No! You stupid jackass!” With my finger pointed and an insult hurled in a decisively unfannish tone, his face softened for a moment. I almost lost my resolve and smiled. But he was still the guy who’d gripped my arm so hard it hurt, and that guy could suck it. “You’re from what paper?” he asked. “I just got a new phone, and your grandmother dialed the wrong number. She insisted it was you. And I was like, here’s a nice lady who’s not going to have a present for her boyfriend, so I went to get the flowers, which cost seventy-five dollars after I already got a hundred-and-sixty-two-dollar ticket for talking to her in the first place.” “I like your accent,” he said. “New York?” “Round it up to eighty.” I held out my hand. “The receipt’s on the kitchen counter.” His mouth twisted, and he looked at me from shoes to hair. I wished I’d showered after the drive from Vegas.

Sacred Bond eBook

From the outside, Stone Ridge appeared to be a small, welcoming town in Montana with sweet shops and friendly faces. Yet no one knew the true powers it held, the ancient secrets that were hidden, or the pain that had unfolded when the ancestors were met with a force so great it left them all in shambles.

The key to resurfacing the powers of the land fell into the hands of Merick. But in order to do so, he would need to build an army. One big enough to withstand those that threatened him and all that he stood for.

Taryn left the big city life looking for a change, a chance to discover herself. Little did she know, her life would unravel in more ways than she could’ve ever imagined. And all because of one man.

The dark-haired stranger. The one that felt so familiar, yet she had no idea why. They’d never met before…or had they?

Whenever he was near she felt a strong connection, one that could not be denied. That feeling of déjà vu. Like she’s lived that moment before, seen those eyes, heard that voice. Even his touch felt electric.

A Sacred Bond had formed.

Turns out, Taryn was the key to it all. She was written in Merick’s destiny, long before their time.

Throne Together By Zoe Dawn

Rosavia Royals, Book 3


RR-3-ThroneTogether-Dawn-Medium
A pining prince needs a second chance at love.

Prince Julius has only ever wanted one man. Raised alongside Prince Dante of Thedes, the two were inseparable until their unspoken mutual attraction ignited into a single passionate encounter. Convinced that it ruined their friendship, Julius retreated to his duties in Rosavia, where he daydreams of another chance to win Dante’s heart.

After four years apart, fate brings Prince Julius back to Thedes. He offers Dante a coveted invitation: return to the Rosavian palace for ten days, and be his plus-one to the Royal Ball of the century. Before long, they realize one night of passion wasn’t enough, and they can’t imagine losing each other again.

As the clock ticks down to the ball, Julius catches wind of Dante’s family meddling, and he must decide if their feelings are real or if they’ve both been played. Were they always meant for each other, or is it all an illusion that will melt away at midnight?

Exclusive from Zoe & the Inspirations behind her Prince:

Throne Together


How did you become a part of this project/world?

It was pure luck! My first trilogy (Best Men, Inc.) which was going to be my debut is structured like their Men of Hidden Creek books because they all take place at the same time and overlap heavily. They wanted to help a new author get started and I made myself available to drop everything and write a book with them! Now I’m debuting with Rosavia instead (and I’m incorporating the lessons I’ve learned into Best Men, Inc.). A dream come true!

Where did your story’s inspiration come from?
The title was already decided when I entered the Rosavian world. Throne Together was obviously going to be about two princes. It made sense for them to know each other their whole life and even be raised together for diplomacy reasons. I lurrrrve a slow burn, yearning, childhood-friends-to-lovers story! The Royal Ball gave me the perfect excuse to throw these two star-crossed lovers together to uncross their stars, untangle their feelings and fall madly in love with a time limit ticking down!

How did you create your Prince?
I have the only two-princes story! I wanted these two princes to be raised together so they would speak both Rosavian and Thedian, know each other inside-out-and-upside-down from birth, be totally comfortable around each other… until the big world-changing event, of course… 😉

Julius, the Rosavian prince, had to be a LITTLE bit of a himbo—big and sweet but emotionally clueless about what his best friend has always felt for him. He’s even kind of clueless about whether he’s attracted to men or women since he hasn’t realized that it’s only ever been Dante for him. Meanwhile Dante, the Thedian prince, is totally aware he’s been pining for Julius ever since he left for his own country and adult responsibilities.

The most fun part was all the research involved in creating my own little country. I wanted Thedes to be its own place, yet feel familiar to anyone who’s been to the Mediterranean. Lazy hot days, white stones, airy halls, shimmering harbors… Dante finding out his love for painting made sense! Meanwhile, Julius is from a world of alpine lakes and lush green fields, steep red roofs and narrow cobbled streets. His family also played a big role in shaping him, of course.

Book 1: Up for Heir By Stella Starling

1

A playboy heir needs a man to marry, right now.

After spending half his life dodging his duty to the crown, the rebel heir to the Rosavian throne has been told in no uncertain terms that it’s time to settle down. Crown Prince Leopold has one month and a vetted list of suitable princesses, and he will announce his engagement during Rosavia’s Royal Ball. But Leo’s got his own ideas about what really suits him…

Royal Librarian Edvin Blom is good at not attracting attention. Shy and self-conscious of his stutter, he’s used to being overlooked and more than happy to stay in the background. At least, until the crown prince with a wild reputation shows up at the library’s new opening and decides to flirt with Edvin’s sister…

Edvin isn’t at all what Leo thought he wanted, but turns out to be everything he can’t stay away from. Edvin’s been burned by falling for someone out of his league before, though. And believing that Leo has really fallen for him? While Edvin’s drowning in his own doubts and insecurities, that might prove impossible… unless love gives them both a reason to come up for air.

Book 2: Reign or Shine By HJ Welch

2

A secret prince needs a lost tourist to save.

Prince Cassander is on vacation from his overdeveloped sense of duty. While hiding out as simply ‘Cas’ in the Rosavian capital, he rescues a gorgeous, distressed American tourist. Matty has no idea that Cas is second in line to the throne. And with only two weeks together to explore the sparks between them, he doesn’t need to ever find out.

New Yorker Matty Doyle is a fish out of water, taking care of his niece and mending his broken heart. When Cas rescues him, the handsome stranger coaxes Matty out of his shell and he throws caution to the wind. Nobody knows him here. Would it hurt to live a little for once?

But a prince can’t stay secret in his own country for long. Cas would give anything to protect Matty from reality, but how can this fantasy together continue when they belong in different worlds?

Book 4: In His Court By Max Rowan

4

A spy prince needs a man who sees through his disguise.

Prince Benedict is not what he seems. His image as a lazy playboy is carefully constructed to hide the truth. Trained since childhood to become Rosavia’s top spy, he spends his life in disguise—and danger—to protect his country. Nobody sees the loneliness in his heart.

Felix Wright is a genius with four degrees, no real-world experience, and a top-secret job… and he’s never even been kissed. A lifetime of being alienated for his most valuable assets has left him reluctant to trust the charming prince who thrusts him into fieldwork for the very first time.

When the Crown Jewels are stolen two weeks before the royal ball, it’s their job to save the country’s reputation. Benedict helps Felix believe in himself, while Felix slowly coaxes the real prince out of hiding. But can they find the jewels and rescue the most priceless treasures of all: each other?

Book 5: Barely Regal By E. Davies

5
A bratty boy prince needs a firm but fair Daddy.

Prince Renford is a royal brat. Nineteen and last in line for the throne, Wren hates his made-up job: Commander of Roses. Good thing his long-time valet has a firm hand—if only Wren could tempt him to break all palace protocol and use it.

Thom Pierce is sixteen years older. Old enough to know he should ignore his prince’s less-than-subtle flirtation. He’s been burned by a higher-ranked boy before. His job and reputation are at stake if the palace catches a scandal unfolding under their noses.

Wren needs the part of Thom that he’s kept locked away for years. If the young prince wants to be taken as seriously as his older brothers, he has to grow up fast. Thom’s rules could help Wren become the man Thom knows he can be in time for the Royal Ball… or they could attract the very attention that forces them apart forever.

Essence of Fear by Bethany-Kris

ESSENCE OF FEAR

by Bethany-Kris A Boykov Bratva Novel Publication Date: June 22, 2020 Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

The allure of fear is learning to love it.

Viktoria Boykov has heard it all—cold they call her. The spoiled bratva princess. She knows very well what people say when her back is turned. She doesn’t mind; let them talk. It’s better for people to assume what they want about her than for them to know the truth … until him.

Pavel Kotov knows what people say—death they call him. The Boykov dog. He’s heard all the whispers locked away in the cells of the Compound. As the reaper for the bratva, his life owned by someone else, he knows what they say doesn’t matter. His life has never mattered … until her.

He’s terrifying.

She’s terrified.

Viktoria only wants to keep running from her past. Pavel doesn’t have a life to run from. Freedom is the one thing they both crave—for entirely different reasons. But this life is vicious, and scars like the ones they wear will never fade.

Together, they could have everything.

Or are they just pawns to a bigger game?

*

Note: Essence of Fear is a Boykov Bratva standalone.
