Publisher's Summary

The breathtaking conclusion of the Smoke & Mirrors Duology.

A beautiful, defiant princess. A renowned, sinfully gorgeous Hollywood actor. A love affair that is sure to rock the British Monarchy...and the world.

Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible - her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both. 

Josh's absolute disregard for Adeline's status quickly drew her into his hedonistic world. And her perfectly worn mask and false facade captivated Josh to the point of obsession. The boundaries became blurred. The physical became emotional. Their hearts became entwined. But a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart, and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands. 

The army of royal advisors who guard the secrets and scandals of the Monarchy will go to unthinkable lengths to keep the smoke and mirrors in place...and Josh away from Adeline. She knows the power she possesses comes with agonizing sacrifices. Walking away from Josh devastates her...but it keeps him safe from the corrupt institution that has ruled her life. 

Yet Josh refuses to lose the woman who has consumed him so completely, distorted his boundaries, and stripped him of all sensibility. Will the power of the British Monarchy triumph? Or will their fierce love for each other change the course of history?

Holy Crap! Absolutely amazing story.

Wow, this one surpassed the first by leaps & bounds. It has so many exciting twists, turns, deceits & crimes uncovered. The lies just kept unfolding, I didn’t see the ending as it turned out at all, except for the ultimate romance which I knew would persevere. So hot and entertaining, Ms Malpas has never disappointed. I really enjoyed the narration by Ms Llewelyn

Superb! Brilliant!! All the stars!

I've been a fan of Jodi Ellen Malpas for a fee years now and one would think that as a reader you would get a feel for a writer's style and surprises... Well let me just say nothing can prepare anyone for the twists & turns this series has. I enjoyed this audio so much and the story was gripping, emotional, angsty, sexy and filled with intrigue. Huge thumbs up!!!

Loved every minute!

I loved every moment of Adeline and Josh’s love story. There were so many twists and turns, lies and sabotage, and ultimately revelations that cut deep. But those discoveries led to the happiest thing of all. Acceptance, freedom, happiness, and most important, love. His True Queen is the conclusion to a stunning story spanning generations of the Royal family and those closest to the Sovereign dynasty and the smoke and mirrors of secrets buried deep. It was the story of one woman who wanted none of what she was born into, never anticipated the tragedy she would endure that led to her taking the throne as Queen of England, and dared not hope of finding that soul deep love that her American Boy found in His True Queen. This was an audio re-read and I loved it.

yet another fantastic story from this author

fantastic story from a fantastic author. never has Jodi put out a book that has been been less than 5 stars. naration was fantastic and you really felt that all the many different characters had their own voice. if I had to say one negative point it would have to be the TV interview towards the end of the story, I'm not going to give anything away but it felt more like a Jeremy Kyle interview than a a long awaited decloration

Oppps she did it again

Wonderful captivating story, again I was unable to stop listening. The narrator was fabulous and just right for this book. A strong lead female character this was a wonderful forbidden love story, with some interesting twists right to the end. Highly recommend the two books in this series.

Really enjoyed it!

I’m a huge JEM fan and had waited patiently for this book to come in audio form. I wasn’t disappointed! Not her best work, but still a great storyline and loveable characters with lots of depth.

Fabulous!

I have absolutely loved this series. I'm a royalist so the storyline is perfect for me, it had me gripped and I fell in the love with the main characters. These are by no means short audiobooks but they could have gone on for another 20 hours and it wouldn't have been long enough!

Amazing

I loved this series Adeline was believable real and Josh is my new favourite book man. He had a hard arrogant side in the first book until Adeline stole his heart, then, a big soft man with a heart of gold flourished. His strength and support made him a hero and as in all great fairytales he got his girl. Jodie Ellen Malpas you are a star and I'm addicted. Roll on 2019.

super!!

I absolutely loved this and I'm quite sad it's over. It is so easy to listen to, the narrator is perfect for this book. I think I could listen to this and The Controversial Princess again and again.

Fantastic

You know you’ve read a great book when 24 hours later you’re still thinking about the characters. A great conclusion to the smoke and mirrors duet. You’ll fall in love with Josh and Adeline, and wonder how much of this happens in real royal life.
