Once upon a time, a nobody met a prince.
Then she met his best friend, a second prince.
Then she learned they like to share, and that’s when things got interesting.
That’s when things got downright scandalous.
 
My life has never been a fairytale. Absent parents, a grandmother gone too soon, and a job working the kitchens for the most heinous bitch in the Kingdom of Bandiff.
 
But that’s before I sneak into the hottest royal ball on the planet. That’s before I waltz right into them.
 
The McDermott Princes. Princes, plural. There’s two of them – both gorgeous beyond belief, alpha as hell, and more tempting than sin. Both with their eyes on me and both with that look that says that I’m theirs.
 
Two princes, one baker. This might sound like too many cooks in the kitchen, but they say they like to share. They say they’ll tear their whole kingdom down to make me theirs. They say they want to make me their Queen.
 
Pretty soon, breaking into a royal ball is the least of my problems.
 
This is a disaster waiting to happen. It’s filthy, and oh-so-wrong. It’s a royal scandal of epic proportions, and I’m right in the middle of it.
 
…I’m right in the middle of them.
 
Maybe this is a fairytale after all. Ever heard of the cook who found a crown? How about two crowns? Two big, dominant, mouthwatering, pulse-quickening crowns.
 
I’ve never found a happy ever after. Now, I think I’m about to find two of them.

Tired of keeping them hidden inside or only having them come out in the bedroom, they’re all here in the form of some wickedly hot stories. Single-minded alpha hero, sinfully taboo relationships, and wildly over-the-top scenarios. If you love it extra dirty, extra hot, and extra naughty, this is the place for you!

My Review
4 Stars
Once Upon a Scandal by Madison Faye is book 6 in the Royally Screwed series. This is the story of Vi, Adam and Shane. I have read the previous book, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Vi, Adam and Shane were all immediately attracted to one another. Adam and Shane are royalty but they know that they want Vi and she to them.
This was true to Ms. Faye’s writing of hot encounters where instant love happens with some hot alpha males….my favorite fantasy romance. Her writing is my quick escape from life when I need a quick break

BLURB

The summer before my senior year of high school I had only one goal: to make Alden Warner see me as more than his best friend’s annoying little sister.

Finally, my wish came true and he noticed me. In a big way. Too bad that the next morning he had no memory of our night together, leaving me heartbroken, and as I later discovered…pregnant.

For the last four years, I’ve been rocking the single mom thing, making sure my daughter comes first. In fact, everything is going fine—until Alden storms back into my life, as my new boss.

His reappearance wasn’t something I planned for. Add my nosy, meddlesome three-year-old and an overprotective brother, and I’m obviously in way over my head.

My only hope now is that I can sway Alden to see things my way…but you know what they say about the best laid plans…

DREAM_EXCERPT REVEAL1.jpg

Dream an all-new emotional and romantic standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips is coming October 16th!

dream_amazon_new.jpg

As a little girl, Andrea Harmon wanted to marry a prince, and Kyle Davenport hoped it would be him. But he never told her how he felt, and lost her as a result. Because sometimes the bad guy gets the girl. And Kyle left town to get over her.
 
Andi made the wrong choice years ago, choosing the bad boy over the best friend she trusted and she paid for it every day since.
Coming face to face with his former best friend was bound to happen once he moved back to Rosewood Bay, but for Kyle, becoming her son’s new teacher is a painful reminder of what they never had. But this time around, Kyle is determined to change their ending. Prince Charming is determined to break down her walls.
 
Except that no happily-ever-after is won without a fight—and her ex-husband doesn’t like to lose.

Excerpt:

“I didn’t mean to drag you away from Kimberly. You two seemed to be hitting it off.” He didn’t pull his hand away from her face, struck by the tinge of something in her voice. Jealousy? And if so, why did it please him that she cared? “Kimberly was like a leech who wouldn’t let go. She even used her sick brother’s story to hang on to me. I wasn’t doing anything more than offering sympathy,” he said, opting for the truth. Andi blinked, unmistakable relief in her pretty brown eyes. “Really?” “Did it bother you when you thought I was into her?” he heard himself asking, knowing he hadn’t planned to go down this road, but the attraction between them was a real, tangible thing. His fingers itched to run through her thick, wavy hair, and he couldn’t tear his gaze from her glossed lips as she ran her tongue nervously over them. Not to mention the energy it took not to look down at her full breasts beneath the jersey. “Would it upset you if I said it did? That watching you with her stirred up feelings that took me by surprise?” “I shouldn’t want you, Andi. You hurt me. Took a fucking knife to my heart. But that was in the past. And what’s going on now between us is the present.” Her eyes shimmered with unshed tears, the past alive despite them both wanting to put it behind them. But everything inside him was pulled toward her now, drawn to her fragile strength and beauty. He dipped his head and pressed his mouth to hers. Warm and giving, her soft lips moved beneath his. His hand slid around her jaw, tilting her head, giving him better access as his tongue delved into her mouth and tangled with hers. Finally, finally, finally, finally. His heart beat out the word in rapid rhythm, a long-held desire coming true as her kiss turned him inside out. He explored the deep recesses of her mouth, tasting her essence, aware of his body’s reaction, the swell of his cock behind his jeans, the spike in adrenaline, the racing of his pulse. Despite the pain, the anger, the hurt, this was the girl of his dreams and she was in his arms, eagerly accepting his kiss. He slid his hand into her hair, grasping the thick strands between his fingers and tugging as the kiss turned hotter and he backed her against the vanity, his waist flush against hers, his hard erection cradled between her thighs. His cock throbbed with unappeased need, desire flowing between them. Until a hard knock sounded on the door, startling them into breaking apart. She looked at him, wide-eyed, the surprise etched in her face as strong as the shock rippling through him. “Be right out,” he called to the person on the other side of the door. He glanced at Andi, her face now flushed a bright red. “There’s no way to avoid walking out together, is there?” she asked. “Whether you go first or last, whoever it is heard my voice.” Her blush deepened. “Well, then here’s to giving them something more to talk about.”

Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn

LRH-SBPRBANNER-CR.jpg Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn Publication Date: November 5th, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance Cover Design: Shanoff Designs
LongRoadHome-FINAL.jpg
 
I left home ten years ago, promising myself I’d never return to the place where I had never been accepted. I was despised and ridiculed for circumstances completely beyond my control.
But when my grandmother passes away, I’m forced to return to Kansas. I will have to face everyone who hated me. But they’re not who I’m most afraid of.
My biggest fear? Facing him. Jordan Marx. The boy I once loved more than life itself. The boy who defended me from them. The boy I’d disappeared on, leaving him nothing more than a horrible nasty lie and hastily scribbled note.
When Jordan finds out the secret I have carried for so long, I’m in for the battle of my life.
Or so I thought.
I might have wandered for years on a path riddled with thorns but with Jordan by my side, taking the long road home means more than reuniting with the only man I’ve ever loved. It might just mean finding myself, and the family I never thought I could ever have along the way.

It was supposed to be one night. But then it became so much more. She’s pregnant. 
 
Sierra:
I never anticipated the two pink lines, the shock of pregnancy, from one night with Denver Kane. Sure, I’ve been hot for him since before he realized I existed. But that doesn’t mean he’s about to become a family man. Even if I’m having his baby. 
 
Denver:
She was off-limits, my little sister’s best friend. Until I crossed the line, not knowing it would change everything. Now she’s pregnant and my future looks different. I want to share in her sunny optimism and believe in new beginnings. Except I’m not cut out for it. Not anymore. 
 
But I can’t walk away from her, from them, and the crazy thing is, I don’t want to.
