(Nordic Royals #2)

**A standalone royal romance**

At first glance I probably seem like any good-looking guy in their late twenties. 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

If you've read The Swedish Prince, then you've met the Crowned Prince of Norway, Magnus. The title of this book fits him perfectly, as he's always been a bit... wild. I was so excited when I heard Magnus was getting his own book. I devoured this one! I read it the same weekend as the royal wedding and let me tell you, it was perfect timing!

Magnus is at a point in his life where he has to start making some big decisions. He can clean up his image and make some changes and carry

OMG we get Prince Magnus’s story 🤗🤗

We met him in the Prince of Sweden and holy shit, and of course I fell in love with another prince. One of these days I will be lucky enough to snag one of them 😝

I should know by now anything Karina Halle creates, I will love. Especially a prince. It’s always quite effortless, it always amazing, and this one quite stunning. Prince of Norway is a bad bad playboy and his parents, the King & Queen of Norway are quite tired of it. They’ve been embarrassed on

I think I have a weak spot for fake dating/marriage of convenience trope. That book did combine them both together and it made a very Happy Em!

Magnus, the Norwegian prince, adrenaline junkie, and a huge playboy screwed up pretty bad this time by appearing on a sex tape. Now in order to improve his image, he has to marry someone sweet and royal. Here comes our sweet heroine who at first hated Magnus with passion.

This might have been the most enjoyable funniest Royal romance ever. It’s

Aaaahhhhh! SO. FREAKING. GOOD. Believe it or not, The Wild Heir was a down-to-earth, straight-forward, sexy love story. No gimmicks, no clichés; just pure romantic goodness!

So here's the plot in a nutshell, explained in the hero's own words:

I don’t even know where to begin! I feel fucked up with feels, giddy, intoxicated. I just can’t... a book hangover is happening right now! My gosh, I dreaded the end of this. I just didn’t want it to end. I was so IN THIS BOOK! I was just so INTO this couple. I was overpowered by them. It’s another level of yumminess. Another friggin level.

I almost DNF'ed this book, as I couldn't care for the wild prince and his childish antics and I really disliked Emma's righteousness, but I persevered and managed to get to the end hoping for a turnaround... that didn't come. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

P.S.: I read this book upon the recommendation of Bec McMaster, one of my favorite authors. I love her books and she loved this book, so I thought I couldn't go wrong reading it, but alas, there's no logic to one's taste. I still love Ms

I read so many good review for this book. So i dive right into it. It is as expected. It was a very good story. Actually the story is plain. A prince must marry in order to save his image after scandal. Enter a naive, headstrong, loner princess and their world exploded. The side characters also give a kick into the story. Miss Halle done it again. She transform us into Norway. With fictional story of course.

I can relate to Ella character. How she feels alone but yet she is still a fighter. She

I have nothing to say, except that it was just okay, nothing to fan over, or even fuss...

Arranged royal marriage.
Opposite personalities.
And time on their hands.
To either fall in or out of love.

I guess you know what happened...😉

Like, I ve said, it was a okay.

A marriage of convenience trope... royal style...
Don't mind if I do.


Great read! I really enjoyed this one.
Loved the Prince.
He's wild... an adrenaline junkie... is he a manwhore? yes... is he hot? hell yes.


The Princess was so-so.
She was young... pushed away as a child... Daddy issues.
I think her immaturity was what I got snagged on. It definitely showed up.

Only storyline issue I had was that there just seemed to be a lot of elements going on at once.
Like, a lot.

“When I see you, you’re all I see.”

After meeting Magnus in The Swedish Prince, I just knew that I had to read his book and see what this defiant Prince was up to.

And he's been up to no good as usual! The King and Queen are not too happy when a sex tape gets released and they've decided he needs to settle down and lucky him, they've come up with a list!

Magnus is torn. At first, there was no way he was going to even consider it but his Dad has been sick and things are not looking too good. H
I kind of feel the same about this one as I did about The Swedish Prince, the companion novel to this one. Out of the two, I do prefer this one but I just have the same sort of mildly pleased but not massively impressed feelings about it.

If you thoght Karina Halle's royals could not get any better, I am very happy to tell you they absolutely do! After finishing The Swedish Prince I had high hopes that Karina would write Magnus story. He sounded like such a wild royal and, as the title of his book says, he surely is a wild heir. And what better way to see all sides of this man than when he meets his match in the woman

I guess I wanted to be proven wrong...

I started The Wild Heir with very low expectations. See, I wasn't very impressed by my first meeting...or second with Prince Magnus. Such a self-absorbed, egotistical, risk taker who had no respect for his title or position. To be honest, I spent most of this story wishing for him to step up to the plate and be a better man. I couldn't give up though as there was this little spark of hope that kept me going on. The more I got to know Magnus, the more I saw h

I'm at 50% and I've been at 50% for a good few days now so for the time being, this is going to be a DNF for me. I normally love this authors work but this one just isn't grabbing me (and I have tried). Although I like the main characters as individuals, I just don't feel a spark between them. Maybe I'll revisit at a later date but for now i'm going to shelve it.

"One day he'll rule this country. Right now I want to rule him. See what it's like to bring Magnus the Mad to his knees."

The Wild Heir is now one of my favorites by Karina Halle. I am not that big into romances about Royal figures, however Karina did such an incredible job with this book. Everything just fit together perfectly, from the super interesting characters to the way the main characters Ella and Magnus met and how their relations

There is no hiding the fact I’m a Karina Halle fan. She publishes a book, I’m reading it. No matter the genre, no matter the blurb, no matter what.

I love a good marriage of convenience love story and more when royals are involved. And The Wild Heir by Karina Halle did not disappoint. It doesn't matter if it is a love at first sight or a slow burn romance, she's always great at creating blinding chemistry between her characters and she more than nailed it with this new story.

I loved Ella and her
boring, super boring, ohhhh exciting.. then boring.

The Wild Heir was a wild bore. I didn't think that such a hot man cover would have been so boring to my eyes. For more than half of this book, yes you read that right, was so completely boring that I would rather watch paint dry for 3 months than re-read it. Then after getting past all of that nonsense - well, it got a lot better. Just not enough to raise my rating of it.

In it, you will meet Ella and Magnus. They are both royalty and boring. The

After having read this from beginning to end, I’m surprised how much I liked it. I love the opposites attract trope so the blurb hooked me right away. I was a bit hesitant about the whole sex tape thing because lets be honest, IRL this would never fly. The idea that something so intimate is out there for anyone to see? Yeah definitely grosses me out and wouldn’t it just be too awkward to have that constantly looming in the background? Forever?

I thought the whole sex tape thing would have ruined

“I used to be so fearless.
Then I met Ella.
Then I realized how much I really stand to lose.”

Mmm.... A royal marriage of convenience!!! Hell yes!!!
Add to that a wild reckless prince who is also an adrenalide junkie and a manwhore!!! Yummy!!!
And the equation is closing with a lovely princess who never wanted to get involve with this prince!!!

3 stars. And another one I thought I would love but didn’t. *deep sigh*

I haven’t read a Karina Halle book since I read the first book in her The Artist Trilogy back in 2013. I love her writing style a lot. It’s so addictive and easy to get through.

This one was very slow paced for me and felt a lot longer than it was. Honestly, the first 40 something percent of this was a slug to get through. I wasn’t interested in the least.

I loved Magnus though. Love, love, love him. He was great and funny and

DNF at 25%. I'm done with this author. One out of 3 is her record with me, and even that one had a major flaw as far as I'm concerned. Why do I never learn about HOT COVERS???

This is what I said shortly before I decided to get this book (in italics below), and now I know why I said it. But really, it's not about my abhorrence to manwhores so much as it's just not keeping my interest.


Am sooooo DONE with any book about man whores! NO WAY JOSE!

”When I see you, you’re all I see.”
One word: Beautiful. This was a beautiful, heart-warming romance. I loved it!

The story in a nutshell: Magnus, the crown prince of Norway, messed up royally and has to save his and the royal family’s image. Therefore, his mother wants to arrange a marriage. This is where Ella, our heroine, princess of Liechtenstein, comes into the picture. What follows is the story of Magnus and Ella getting to know each other and falling in love.
