One of PopSugar''s Top Summer Reads of 2021! An ordinary summer goes royally awry when a prince and princess move next door, bringing their handsome bodyguard with them, from New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle.

And she''s happy with how things are--really--until British royals rent the property next to hers and their brooding bodyguard decides she''s a security threat. Piper quickly realizes that one person''s fairy tale is an ordinary woman''s nightmare as a media frenzy takes over the island and each run-in with Harrison Cole is hotter and more confusing than the last. But beneath Harrison''s no-nonsense exterior lies a soft heart, one that could tempt a woman who''s sworn off attachments into believing in white knights. But when Piper finds herself smack in the middle of a royal scandal that rocks the island she''ll need more than Harrison''s strong arms to shield her--she''ll have to do a little rescuing herself. With careers, hearts, and friendships on the line, Piper and Harrison will have to decide what they''re willing to give up for a chance at their own happily ever after.

I have an obscene amount of confidence, a tattooed body sculpted by the Nordic gods, and I love the ladies as much as they love me. If I''m not BASE jumping or car racing, I''m chasing other devious thrills with the woman of the week. And that''s fine if you''re the average single guy. But I''m not the average single guy. u200b u200bI''m Crown Prince Magnus of Norway and my latest scandal just landed my entire royal family in hot water. Now the only way the monarchy can save face is for me to smarten up - publicly. If I don''t, I''ll no longer be heir apparent to the throne. So it''s either I abdicate my future role as King or... I get married. To a blue-blooded stranger. Enter Princess Isabella of the tiny country of Liechtenstein. Quiet, intelligent, and uniquely beautiful, Ella doesn''t like this arrangement any more than I do and she''s not afraid to show it. She says I''m a womanizer, that I don''t take anything seriously, that my ego should be taken down a few pegs, and I think she aims to make me miserable for the rest of my life. But even as our arranged marriage becomes a war of wit and words, I''m determined to break through Ella''s prim and proper façade to find the wildu200b, sexualu200b and risk-taking woman underneath. I want to uncover the Queen inside her. The only question is - will she let me? **The Wild Heir is a standalone royal romance and a spinoff of The Swedish Prince but it is not necessary to read that book beforehand as The Wild Heir is about different characters**

Veiled
She just wanted a normal life. He had other plans for her. Would you go through Hell for the one you love? VEILED is a STANDALONE paranormal romance and urban fantasy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Lie and The Pact. Death. It''s something that Ada Palomino has always known so well, having grown up in a house of horrors, surrounded by a family plagued by ghosts and demons and things that go bump in the night. But after the sudden and tragic death of her mother two years ago, death has never felt so personal. Or so close. Now eighteen, Ada is trying to move on with her life and the last month of summer holds nothing but sunshine and promises with her first year at a Portland design school just around the bend. That is until her increasingly violent and realistic dreams, dreams of other worlds, of portals and veils where her mother is tortured and souls bleed for mercy, start to blend into reality. Ada has to lean on her older sister, Perry, to try and make sense of it all but even then, she''s never felt more alone. Then there''s Jay. Tall, handsome and deeply mysterious, Jay would be just another stranger, a familiar face on the bus, if it wasn''t for the fact that Ada has met him before. Every night. In every single dream. And the more that Ada is drawn to him in both worlds, the more she''s in danger of losing everything. Including her heart. And her very soul.
