Publisher's Summary

A brilliant man with a profound secret....

Rocco Cornaro dedicates his life to creating innovative, life-saving medical devices...and in the process has become a wealthy man. However, he harbors a deep secret: his mother was once the lover of Sarcaccia's King Carlo Barrali, and Rocco is the product of their illicit affair.

Leaves a marriage on the edge and a royal family in jeopardy.

Trained from birth to keep his royal parentage quiet, Rocco cannot even trust his beloved wife with his secret, and his silence drives her away. When Russian thugs kidnap Justine and hold her for ransom, he must risk everything - his siblings' security, his life's work, and the reputation of a royal family - to save the woman he loves. But when he reveals his secret - and confronts a new, horrible truth - will Rocco break Justine's trust forever?

    "Great addition to the Series"
    If you could sum up The Royal Bastard in three words, what would they be?

    scandal, thugs, surprise

    Rocco Cornaro - enjoyed listening to her voices for these characters


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    many surprises


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed this latest entry into the Royal Scandals series. This one is about the illegitimate son of the king of a small Mediterranean island country. If his existence becomes known, it could destabilize the country. He is also a medical doctor and device manufacturer which plays into the first part of the story. He needs to protect his estranged wife from potential kidnappers and ends up needing the King's assistance. You learn more about the other siblings. I look forward to finding out more about the rest of the family.

    "Love this series!"

    I've enjoyed this series in print, but this is the first audio I've tried. So glad I did! Nicole Burnham writes characters you care about and the world she's built is a fabulous escape. Love this royal family and I'm anxious for the next book. Great narration, too!
