Publisher's Summary

Some fairy tales start after midnight.

The crown prince and I have nothing in common. He's a rugged, battle-hardened soldier who spent four years in the Royal Guard, an elite military unit. I met the king and queen for the first time wearing leggings and a sweatshirt. But there's the way he looks at me. Like he knows every dirty thought I've had about him - and he likes them. There's the way my pulse skyrockets every time his hand brushes mine. I'm the ambassador's daughter. I know better than to mess around with a foreign head of state. But I don't know how long I can resist.

Not all princes are charming.

I spent years in the Royal Guard, our most elite military unit, fighting like hell so I could rule one day - not so I could give my father an heir with some well-bred rich girl. I have a f--king country to run. My love life can take a back seat. It's not like I've ever met a girl I had to have - until her. I can't stop thinking about the way she laughs, about how she might taste. My father's threatening to strip me of my title if I touch her, but she makes me want to break every one of my own rules.

Contains mature themes.

    "3.5* GOOD.. BUT OH THOSE 'SAYS' WERE JUST TOO MUCH"

    Hazel has been invited to spend a month in Sveloria by her Mother who is the American Ambassador there and she happily agrees as she dropped out of Med. School a few months earlier and hasn't made plans for her life yet. However, when she steps off the train after hours of travel, the last thing she was expecting or wanted was to be formally introduced to the King, Queen and handsome Prince of Sveloria. From their first meeting, it was clear that sparks flew between Hazel and Prince Kostya.. and that it was just going to be a question of where and when.. but a few things stood in the way.

    Prince Kostya was getting pressured by his cold heartless father to wed and produce an heir so a likeable candidate with all the right lineage was ever present.. but Kostya wouldn't be coerced into marrying without love. Since meeting Hazel, and finding an ease when talking to her, Kostya's mind has been consumed with sexy improper thoughts of her - what she would smell sound and taste like.. and it wouldn't be long before he would know the answers. And, for a week, things are wonderful.. but then the unthinkable happens and lives change, danger looms and their relationship suffers.

    A modern day fairytale.. with young lovers, an ogre of a father and a dark force to be won over or crushed. Fairly insta passion and sex with romantic words and sweet sentiments errr 'coming' a week later. I think I could have happily listened to the smooth witty dialogue and storyline in one sitting - it was light, had humorous banter, a dashing Prince, a down-to-earth feisty heroine and sexy scenes too but the CONTINUAL over use of the words say and says was just too much. No 'saids' here - in ONE chapter lasting 8 minutes I went back and counted 50.. yes 50 I say or he says and 26 alternative SAYings for the word... arrrgh enough! enough torture I'll tell you everything just please stop SAYing say!! This could have been a 5 star listen if it wasn't for the says - and also that it suddenly went from one sexy scene to the final chapter which was a year later at the wedding rehearsal then it just abruptly ended.. and sadly an Epilogue never came. Dual POV storyline and both narrators did a great job making, IMO, the thousands of SAYs after someone spoke totally unnecessary.

    Worth a credit? It was entertaining, well narrated, totally unrealistic, insta everything and I enjoyed most of it and certainly won't be asking for my credit back so YES, IMO, it's creditworthy.. but don't say I didn't say anything about all those frustrating says!!

    "Fiery hot royal romance"

    This audiobook was definitely entertaining and had a great story! The daughter of the American ambassador to a tiny Eastern European country arrives there for a month long vacation. Once there she meets the heir to the throne, who is almost immediately enthralled by her. They start a hot and heavy secret affair because the king doesn't want his son to marry an outsider. The longer they are together, the harder it is to go separate ways after the month is over.

    "Finally! A f*cking heroine I can relate to!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hazel rocks and Kostya is adorable.


    What about Lidia Dornet and Will Thorne ’s performance did you like?

    Will has defiantly ruined me for any other narrator. I immediately looked to see what else he had done so I could buy it but there is nothing yet. Get on that Audible! Lidia did a great job too. Never once did I want to rip her vocal cords out. Perfect balance of confidence and NO WHINING! THANK YOU Lidia!!!!

    "Read Read Read...."

    Such well thought out, rounded characters, and omg the country, I want to know more of it's history now! Hazel was down to earth and helped Kostya was a man who had always wanted more out of his life, but never realized it till Hazel came along. You don't understand how good this book was! I need more like it! Roxie Noir has one Me over with her writing and just how she blended the history of this country into the story and made it come alive, and oh god, I need more on the history of this country now, she made it so fascinating that I want to pack my bags and just head out into the world to see if maybe Hazel and Kostya are actually real and their world real. lol Seriously give this book a try!

    Story
    "Russian accent - YES !!!"

    If you're looking for a good Russian accent in the romance genre, they're few. So I was beyond excited when I heard Roxie's book was being made into audio.

    The story, yes, it has some little flaws like the whole "I say" thing, however, it's a great story. I won't re write the blurb here because well - it's up there. I have read everything Roxie has written so it's possibly I may be a little biased because I love her stuff. Although it's romance and some of it is KU, it's not fluff or quick and easy, the characters are very well developed.

    The narrators did a great job. Holy cow, Will Thorne, so much yes. I loved his voice, especially when he was trying to joke with her. Lidia Dornet is fantastic too, I love her work and they just made this work so well. Her Russian accent was totally on point as well. I think it's an enjoyable listen. Well done.

    "WOW!"

    This could be a definite re-listen. Author and both narrators are new to me, but man did it all work together nicely. A great story with a fantastic narration. I'm not Russian, so I can't say if the accents were perfect. But, both male and female narrator American and Russian accents sounded totally fine to me. The story was engaging. Loved the characters, like all of them. Had a nice mix of romance, suspense, drama, and humor. I could have listened in one sitting, and had to force myself to put it down to get work done. Sure hope there is more coming from this team.

    Story
    "Royal love affair"

    I loved this story. I was so exciting and different. An exotic country, beautiful castle, a handsome prince and forbidden love all wrapped up in a bow. The characters are lovable and interesting. I really admired Hazel because she was unapologetically herself and she stepped up to the plate when duty called. I really enjoyed the taboo factor of her relationship as well as the cultural differences between the two. Prince Kostya was very charming as well. I admired his loyalty to his country and his willingness to sacrifice for the greater good of everyone else.

    Will Thorne's voice and accent is beautiful. His narration kind of reminded me Prince Naveen from The Prince and the Frog. I loved hearing him speak. Lidia Dornet is one of my favorite narrators. I love the passion she brings to her performances.

    The only thing I didn't that distracted from the story was the repetitive "I Say"s. It became laughable in one of the chapters.

    "More please"
    If you could sum up Reign in three words, what would they be?

    What is next???? I loved this book, maybe it was just he sexy Russian accent by Will


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed this book, but I loved Will the best , his Russian accent just made me love this story.


    What does Lidia Dornet and Will Thorne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lidia also did a great job, but Will was just phenomenal


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to see more books on audio by Roxie.
