Prince Kian of Wildemar is such a playboy, he is known as His Royal Hotness. Being the spare to the heir, Kian is used to having fun and not having all the responsibilities of his twin brother Garret, who is the Crown Prince of Wildemar. When Garrett is kidnapped, Kian is devastated. He is now the Crown Prince and the women take notice.

Savvy Breslin saves Kian from vultures out to get their claws into the Prince. It isn’t long before Savvy realizes the

Hot and steamy with a Cinderella ending.
This book is another one that falls in the love-hate category. I'm all for strong women, however in this book the female kind of annoyed the crap out of me. She withheld things. She pushed her independence. She came off as one that truly wasn't interested in him at all in many spots. I don't see what Kian even saw in her personally.

Another thing that bugs the crap out of me was his name. You have one guy with a normal type

2.5 - "You’re a writer... Why don’t you change the story." Stars.

The first book in Tracy Wolff’s His Royal Hotness series gives us Prince Kian of Wildemar’s story. It’s a bit of a Cinderella tale in that the woman he falls for is a lowly bartender/writer.

I really like him. I shouldn’t I do.

This is one of those books that very much falls into the 'didn’t love it/didn’t hate it' category. The author knows how to craft a story well, and as expected delivered on the sexy-times, but there were seve

What is it about royal stories that is so addicting? You can start your royal wedding watch with this sexy, witty and very twisty story.

In this series kickoff book we meet Prince Kian of Wildemar, the heir’s spare who leaves all royal burdens to his older brother by minutes while indulging in all its benefits until his twin is kidnapped un quickly all future kingly responsibilities and attention turn to him, including that of the crown chasers.

Living his title to the fullest, Prince Kian enjoyed the women, parties and the doors that swung wide every where he turned.

Well, that was his life, until it became what he least expected. Kian wasn’t expecting to fall for a waitress. But when he falls, he falls hard. Kian, also, didn’t expect his brother, heir to the throne, to go missing. And finally, Kian didn’t expect that the woman he can't pull away from was the one woman his brother gave up for his drive for the throne.

Unfortunately, this was a DNF at 48% for me. There was just too much going on that I kind of hated to let me get through the whole book. Kian is the 'spare' to the heir of Wildemar. When his brother disappears, he is forced to drop his party boy ways and start acting in his brother's place. Kian is flirty, hot, and hates politics. He meets Savvy during an event at the castle where she was working as a waitress.

They apparently have this insta-love connection that I just didn't see. Kian doesn't k

This is one of those books where the ending made all the difference for me. This book started out a little rough and I get why. We have twins who are in line for the throne. Garrett, the older twin is first in line and the typical play-by-the-rules man. Then we have Kian. The Spare. That's what he's called because if something happens to Garrett, then Kian gets the throne.

Kian is the ultimate playboy. He gets all the luxury of being a prince without the duties. I think it's over the top when we

4.5 stars (wanted an epilogue)

Kian aka His Royal Hotness is just perfect. He was a playboy until tragedy occurs. Then he mets Savvy. Savvy has a secret which could change everything. Loved this story. There was great drama and romance, some emotional angst for both of them, lots of laughs (loved his body guards) and plenty of hot and sexy times.

Keeping this relatively brief, I'll say I enjoyed the premise of this story and each character related to the plot. It was an interesting set up and the love story was romantic. It hooked from the start definitely. However, the actual execution of the story felt rushed to me. Everything from the plot to the romance happened at warp speed therefore not allowi

Prince Kian of Wildemar, a.k.a His Royal Hotness, is the spare to the heir & lives his life like he doesn't have a care in the world. He does what he likes & sleeps with a lot of willing beautiful women. But when his older brother, who is his fraternal twin, is kidnapped suddenly he is the heir to the throne. Kian likes his life as a rich royal & especially liked the fact that he had no royal responsibilities being the younger brother. When his brother disappears, everything changes. ...more
What a great read!

Kian is the spare to his brother the heir. When his brother is kidnapped he is forced to step into the Crown Prince’s shoes. A position he does not, nor has he ever, wanted. Trying to not break protocol while fighting off the unwanted attentions of the aristocratic women that are swarming him, he is rescued by a waitress that snags his undivided attention. He hasn’t truly smiled in three months but suddenly he’s laughing and the weight on his shoulders has lifted.

This weeks book of contradictions is Royal Pain (His Royal Hotness #1) by Tracy Wolff. I am a reader always looking for flawed and deep characters and this plot seemed to be a source that would fill my needs.

Imagine my surprise at the first chapter where I actually rechecked if I had the right book in mind. The plot started so superficial that I was wondering if there was any depth to the male lead. And given the fact that the female lead was kind of thrown into the story with an instant lets c

This was a cute. It did it's job which was to entertain me, keep in engaged in the story and pull me in enough to want to pick up the next one. So in that regard, it was pretty successful. But there was something about it that kept me from truly "loving" it. Please don't ask me what that something is, because I'm still trying to figure it out. I'm sure that by the time I'm done writing this review I'll know.

Technically, Kian is a prince. But to his joy, he is just the spare to the heir. He doesn't have the responsibility of the crown but have all the advantage of being Royal. The tabloids call him the  His Royal Hotness  as he is known for his naughty activities.

Not your typical royalty romance novel that I was expecting. This had much more involved in it including a little suspense with the Prince being kidnapped.
I didn't like Prince Kian at the beginning of this book because I felt like he was gonna be too much of a sarcastic asshole. But as I kept reading I changed my mind. But he also changed his personality after falling in love so it made me like him more.
I really enjoyed this book and look forward
I liked this book but I didn't love it. Not to sure why, something I'd have to think over. I just felt quite in the middle of this book. There are parts I thought were eh, then parts I really loved. So, I'm feeling kinda torn right now. I would definitely read a sequel and I think I sequel clearing somethings between both main characters would make me like it even more. Please, give me a book on those bodyguards though! I love them!!!!!

The royal lover in me demanded I pick this up. It started off well, but then I found myself feeling like I was being pushed along in the story.

Kian and Savvy started off hot, but they went from sizzling chemistry to deep feelings being shared under some pretty heavy emotional turmoil. I get that sometimes feelings present themselves at the worst time, but it felt like with everything else that was going on in Kian's life blurting it out when he did felt like a cop out.

Thank you, Netgalley, for an advanced e-book copy of this story! All opinions are still my own and are not influenced in any way.

Kian is three things: a twin, a prince, and a womanizer. His twin brother, Garrett was born just a bit before, so Garrett gets to deal with being the future king while Kian gets to show off, sleep around, and enjoy the perks of being royal with none of the responsibilities. Then, Garrett gets kidnapped, and Kian has to step it up and learn to cope with being the next i

It's my bad, why did I request this book? Prince Kian of Wildemar is the younger twin, the playboy, the dilettante, until his twin, the heir apparent is kidnapped. Of course when your twin is kidnapped, presumed dead, you immediately try to start up something with one of the waitresses at a royal party - doesn't everyone?

Although I'm a huge Tracy Wolff fan, I must admit I was a little skeptical about this one. Shame on me. I should have know Ms. Wolff would craft a story that would pull me in and have me hooked in no time. I couldn't put this one down!

Kian is suppose to be the spare prince. He's always known his twin brother was the prince that would take over the throne. He's lived his life fun and fast. Until now! When his brother is kidnapped and presumed dead he is called back to the palace to take his place

I liked this one, some parts more than others. The story felt a little flat, not really that much development and insta!love wasn't so instat but it almost felt like it, so I guess I wasn't that into it.

It's a good read to take your mind out of things, I think.

We've all heard the term "an Heir and the Spare" (just in case you haven't it means, Two children - typically in reference to members of the monarchy or nobility, said to need two children, one to succeed to a title and the other to guarantee the family line should anything happen to the first) well this book is about Prince Kian, the spare, aka His Royal Hotness, and what happens to the spare if anything should happen to the Heir.

His Royal Hotness is the best naughty fairytale ever!

I never know what to expect from Tracy Wolff next, but whatever it is, I want it. I don't care what she writes about, I know it's gonna be good. I really really love her writing style. She has a way of writing dialogue that makes me feel like I'm in the room, and the same goes for her sexy scenes. This particular story that I expected to be funny, surprised me by touching my emotions. I felt the struggle, the pain, and the passion. And, it a
