The good news is, I’m out of exile and I have the woman I love by my side. And I still have my crown, tarnished though it may be.
The bad news is…all of that is temporary.
There are those that want me as far away from the crown as possible. I still have a killer on my tail who has a more permanent solution in mind. Oh and there’s the small matter of all the secrets I’m keeping from Ariel.
For her I risked it all, but will she wind up paying the price?
Once she knows my secrets. What will she do to protect me and the crown?
What will I be willing to do to protect her?
The answer is: everything.

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.

I think Miss Malone is really getting into this series, and the characters and story are coming alive with a detail and reality that are making each one a stronger book than the previous. While I wasn’t a huge fan of the earlier books, I feel like they are definitely a part of a larger book-world and being able to see the growth of the characters is making the series stronger.
Book One in this duet gave us the hint of a happily ever for Tristan and Ariel, but we knew there would be more hiccups to the plan, including a crazy road trip planned by Penny and Ariel. So we’re not only working a happily ever after for one couple in the book, but the crazy conspiracy theories abound and keep us on our toes!
We know and love Tristan and Ariel already. But this book gave us way a much more intricate backstory to both characters that had the readers really connecting with these two. They were forced to divulge a lot of information to friends and family, and make tough choices. Through it all, we got to read chapters by not only the main characters of this book, but by beloved past characters like the King and Queen. All of which led to a better understanding of not only Ariel and Tristan, but many in their close circle.
These two have had waves of pheromones and chemistry coming off them in waves for multiple books. So it was no surprise to see some salacious sexy times. But the depth of the relationship was explored and we got to see a romantic and thought out side of both of them; along with a lot of jealousy and love!
I opened this book a bit leery, not sure if I’d get sucked in or not; but I was quickly taken back to the Winston Isles and immersed into the conspiracies and romance of the island. Cringing when the reader could connect some dots the characters couldn’t, and gasping when I was as surprised as they at a new turn of events. I loved seeing the past main characters, with chapters in their voice. It brings the back into itself, making the overall story arc much stronger.
I am so into these books now! Starting out I kept plodding through as I was caught up, but struggling with the first few feeling mechanical and eerily similar. These last few have been great at keeping the reader involved, entranced, and intrigued! I’m sure Ashton has more crazy in store for us as we get to know more of the Royal Elite and see the rest of the Royal family fall in love.
“The woman I loved was not the woman I remembered. So I either needed to embrace this new woman and let the other woman go, or maybe lose her forever.”
“In order to be able to hold her again, she’d have to know the truth. And that meant risking her walking away from me forever.”
“Penny was beautiful. Always had been. But there was something about the steel in her eyes that terrified me down to the soul. She wasn’t messing around. With her on my side, Ashton would know real fear.”
