All they want is everything they can’t have.


Yes, yes, I've heard the rumors.
The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that.
The problem is, he's also my job.

When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away.

Then I caught my boyfriend cheating — and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.

So I really enjoyed cheeky royal it was a fun easy read that I had no issue losing myself in.
This had no high brow storyline to draw the reader in and relied totally on its charming storyline which had me smiling and chuckling to myself throughout.
I'm not gonna rehash the blurb here but will just say that this is one of those stories that creeps up on you by surprise.
I really wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did but it had such a feel-good f

I’m not sure what it is about romances with royals that I find so tempting, but Sebastian was a treat. His whoremongering notwithstanding, he was such a sweetheart. He was just trying to be his own person, fulfilling his own desires, one of which focused on his photography. He’s sworn off women in his determination to get done what he needs done. What he couldn’t prepare himself for was his hotter than hot, artsy and irresistible new neighbor, ‘Len’.

This story was teeming with secrets, stealthy

I’m all about the royals these days and when I read this blurb, what stood out to me is the heroine is in charge of guarding the royals (aka the hero). This is a really cute, super sexy story and I definitely recommend it. But let me also tell you that it’s part one of a two-book series and it ends in a cliffhanger. The second book, Cheeky King, comes out April 30 – so you don’t have long to wait.

I actually appreciate the fact that this romance is not rushed. How many books have I read recently

DNF Chapter 5.

This was not very good I am afraid. It read like a bad B Grade film. Cringe worthy, disjointed dialogue and lame plot.

I tried again at Chapter 7, but had to put it down again. Not my cup of tea.

Oh! I must add that I also hated the cover. I think the abs of the model have been photoshopped to an inch of its life. Just come on already!

I’m stating this right from the get-go…..this story DOES end in a cliffy. So enter at your own risk! *smirk*

Good golly miss molly….this was a great read! Engaging, entertaining, with a little bit of suspense and a whole lot of secrets and lies, you will not be able to put down this book!

To be completely truthful, I was expecting just another typical royal romance…swoony prince, delightful commoner, and a sweet and lovable storyline. But those descriptions are just a small taste of what Cheeky Ro

A couple of months ago I read Cheeky Prince, the prequel to Nana Malone’s Royals Undercover duet. Although I wasn’t crazy about the prequel, it left me more than willing to dive into the duet. In fact, I was more than a little bit curious. Thus, when I finally got the chance to dive in, I was happy to devour the story.

Cheeky Prince was an insanely addictive read, one that had me turning the pages at a rapid pace. It gave us so much, ensuring there will be plenty more of this world to come, promi

I really enjoyed this story. Nana Malone is becoming one of my go-to authors!

This story is a refreshing story of the royal meets commoner and finds love. Sebastian is a prince with reasons of not wanting to be the prince anymore. SO when he is told that his father has two other children out there he takes it upon himself to go find them. He is hoping that maybe one of them will want to take the spot of King or Queen when the time is right.

I absolutely adored this forbidden romance! It was funny, sweet, heartwarming and very sexy!
Penny is part of the royal guard who protects the royal family. She is good at her job but tends to be a bit of a klutz. She has been sent to the US to get close to the Prince and convince him to return home. Sebastian's heart isn't in becoming King. He loves his country and wants to help them but not as King. Penny/Len becomes friends with Sebastian and they find they are kindred spirits

When I was young, I was the type of girl who was into anything to do with royalty. From Disney princess books to princess movies, I was a fanatic. I always had that fascination of bring whisked into a fairy tale filed with castles, hunky princess and royal jewels. Now let's be realistic here-it might not happen at all but I always dreamed about wearing a tiara and gorgeous gown with my prince charming. Hahaha. I can dream, right.

OMG!! I truly loved Cheeky Royal!! It was a total 4 1/2 star read for me!! I'm serious...we need 1/2 star ratings!! Cheeky Royal was a fantastic read! There was not anything that I did not love about this book. Cheeky Royal is a fun and enjoyable read, not to mention absolutely hilarious. Penelope and Sebastian are the cutest duo ever. The thoughts that run through their minds, not only about each other, but about life in general will have you holding your stomach from laughing so hard.

Nana Malone has spun a beautiful tale of royal hotness! This is a story of two people trying to find theirselves both in two different ways but one may have a hidden agenda. Until she falls for him. And there is no stopping her heart.

Prince Sebastian has had enough of the royal agenda. He gets burned and goes on a hiatus until he learns something that gives him a new agenda. But he doesn't let anyone know where he's gone. Confused and heartbroken Sebastian sets off to find what he needs to make

WOW! Five stars worthy and more! I loved this story! The main characters, Prince Sebastian and Royal Guard Member, Penelope are strong, witty, smart characters that drive this story. It is so well done that I will read it again and again!

OMG, I absolutely LOVED this book! I could not stand to put this book down once I started reading it; despite my husband's threat of violence against my Kindle!
Cheeky Royal is the tale of Penny, the Royal Guard who is sent undercover to protect Prince Sebastian, who is also incognito searching for the next heir to the throne. Penny, in her endearing, clutzy ways, soon becomes a critical confidant to Sebastian, the photographer/bartender. Until, the bottom falls out of their world....

In my opinion this was a great read. There was suspense, intrigue, humor and fun characters. Nana Malone did her usual with the humor and secondary characters, they are fun and a pain in the butt. The main characters were interesting and flawed. Sebastian is a liar, doesn't want to be king, hurt by his Dad and Mom, and wants to be free. He travels to find that and his half brother. Penny is a liar, clumsy, smart and wants to do a good job. Bring these two together there was lots of chemistry bet ...more

If this review doesn't make sense, it's because in writing it as I'm reading this book, and adding my thoughts and opinions along the way.

I don't typically comment on covers of books, because I don't see then on my Kindle Paperwhite, but the cover model, Forest, is totally drool-worthy!!! I may have had to wipe my kindle down when I saw him in full color at the cover reveal. I'm also glad the title was changed to Cheeky, as it's a better fit, I think.

This is, without a doubt, the most engaging book I have read from this author.

I mean, ultimately, you know where this is going, but there are elements to the story which elevate this from run of the mill.  The play of these two characters against each other, set against Penny's back story is deftly handled.  

These characters are written so well together that it is exceptionally easy to get caught up in the romance.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Fantastically written, with witty, fun characters and a complex, intriguing plot.

Penny and Sebastian are both complex, smart, funny and hot as hell. Their journey throughout the story made it a book that I couldn't put down. Each with their secrets and the struggle to come clean with each other, made it all the more enjoyable.

The secondary cast of characters are always entertaining and I can't wait to see what future novels bring of their adventures.

Another breathtaking read from Nana Malone.

Penny's and Sebastian's stories are now the main focus.

Penny has to be the worst Royal Guard in history. Her heart belongs to her painting. She is responsible and dedicated to making her parents proud, but no matter how much she tries, her failures are off the charts.

As the King sends her on an undercover and secret mission to bring Sebastian home, she promises to herself she will succeed or bust. Her assignment is to befriend Sebastian using a fake identity. Now that she is a grown young woman,

This is the story of Penny and Sebastian. Sebastian doesn't want to be king so his only option is to find his long lost brother and make him the prince so I don't have to be the next king. He's been hiding out as a commoner and the King has commissioned Penny to find him and bring him home. Their attraction is strong and she wonders if he recognizes her.

Nana's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin. It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
