Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a queen - the first queen of Wessco. It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just 19, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident, and cunning. What she isn’t...is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man - particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.

I don’t usually read historical romances but this one was awesome and so touching as well. I fell in love with the characters and felt their joy and their heartbreak. This is a must read (listen).

The narration was spot on!

This book is a sincerely thoughtful romance. There is friends 👬 and family. Love 💕 and tragedy. It is a well written, excellently narrated book.
I love the Q&A at the end of the book with two amazing narrators Andi Arndt and Sebastian York.
(I have written about Sebastian York🥰 so much my iPad easily predicts I’m going to type his name)

There’s nothing I won’t do to protect Skyler, the team, and my family. After the recent attempt on our lives, escaping to Rio to enjoy the hot sands of Copacabana Beach sounds like a little piece of heaven and a much-needed break from the nightmare back in Boston. When my brother’s Brazilian mate solicits my help to weed out a shadowy embezzler slowly bleeding his business dry, I can’t say no. However, the more we dig into the issue, the more secrets come to the surface.

Thank You 🙏 for not ending this book in a cliffhanger. Starting from the very beginning of the International Guy series, every book has been a gem.
I am excited and a bit sad looking forward to the next and 😩 last book of the series.
Sky and Parker are such a perfect pair and with Ava Erickson and Sebastian York narrating it couldn’t get much better!

Being bad never felt so good. I fell for Ally the moment I saw her. Who doesn't like a confident, intelligent woman with curves I could spend days exploring? Who am I kidding? I have. Many times. Our story ended abruptly when she packed her bags and left like we weren't meant to be. We are. So I'm calling her bluff. That's how I ended up thousands of miles from home, standing next to a man who claims to be her fiancé. Being good has never felt so bad.

The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed. It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite. We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance. Violent relief in a warm body. Beneath her touch, I’m alive. Against her skin, I’m redeemed. Buried inside her, I forget the past. Until the past takes her from me. Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving. I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again.

This is a short relatively stress free romance. Yes, it is a bit predictable but Jeremy York as the voice of Rook’s drummer makes it worth a listen 👂🏼.
Franco is a tattooed “bad boy” who is the sweetest, most caring and loving character. He has it all; the looks of a tall, dark, and gorgeous The tats of a hot as hell drummer. And the heart ♥️ filled with the purest love.

I love Joe Arden but even his narration couldn’t get me to finish when I realized Sunny was going to be the heroine. I thought for sure the quiet girl that helped clean his face at the beginning might be the love interest.
I just don’t like Sunny as a main character. The author just doesn’t write Sunny in a favorable light.

This is to Audrey: Are you a sadist? Making us wait a month between books is torture! And a cliffhanger to boot.

I can’t wait to read the next books in the series and see how it all turns out. I have my own theories and want to see if I’m right.
