3.5 stars, rounding up to 4 because I can!!! I totally enjoyed the premise of this story. A little mysterious, and a lot of sexy. Our heroine, Rourke, who leads a pretty laid back life, finds herself as a guest at a secret masquerade ball, where she meets not one, but two, very sexy and mysterious men. One sets her senses on fire, (the other sets her sense on edge) and she has quite a little dalliance with him, only to leave the evening in a very Cinderella fashion. Months later they cross paths ...more

Damn what a whirlwind of events. Typical Jeana E. Mann she always throws these curveballs that gets you more involved in the story.

Roman and Rourke met a masquerade ball where anonymity was mandatory. The chemistry was thru the roof electrical and steamy and as soon as it began it was over. Fast forward couple months when they run into each other again in the most unexpected way. Roman attitude wasn’t the best. He was a complete a-hole and I give Rourke credit for putting up with his bad attitud

This is a great book if you think this is just about sexy times well is not it goes deeper than that, I started reading and in my head I was me too girl, me, anyways without spoiling anything for anyone yes is a sexy times book but it also touches the subject of Alzheimer’s and how it affects the person suffering from it and their families and as I’ve being on the receiving end of that nasty disease it touched me on a personal level and not just that it also touches on fatherhood not g ...more

A secret masquerade hookup leads to complications with Rourke’s new boss.

Rourke: As a celebrity personal assistant, I pride myself on professionalism. When a mysterious stranger offers to show me the wonders of a clandestine sex club at the masked ball, I jump at the chance. Because no one will know me, right? One night. No names. No faces. It should have ended there. I had no idea that the handsome, enigmatic man would turn out to be my new employer.

This book is so good! I loved it so much I’ve already preordered the next one. Roman is such an arrogant ass but he meets Rourke and she has the perfect attitude and sass to deal with him! I love their interactions. Roman steals your heart after you get to know him. This is such a fresh and different take on a romance novel and has everything you need. I can’t wait for the next book.

I found this book on Kobo, It was a good read. It held my attention from beginning to end.
The only thing I didn't like was the cliff hanger ending.
I assumed the 2nd book was different characters.

Excellent romance sometimes unpredictable
(First part of a trilogy but it can read separately)
I hesitated to choose this book initially, because I do not really like the variations on Cinderella, but finally, I was not disappointed by the style and the beginning of the plot that I think must continue in the others books of the series.
One of the disconcerting points is the way the author makes her characters interact; The first chapters directed me towards a BDSM narrative, but then evolves toward

What you need to know:

*This is a standalone contemporary erotic romance with a happily-ever-after ending.

*This is book #1 of a 4 book series.

*It was previously released under the title Sex, Lies & Lipstick as part of the Bad Boy Billionaire Bachelors Boxset on Amazon KU.

This book...I loved writing it as much or more than PRETTY BROKEN GIRL. I wrote this book on a whim and it still haunts me. That's why I started the ROYAL SECRETS SERIES. There will be four standalone books, but you'll enjoy

For seventeen of her twenty-six years, Everly had been Rourke's best friend. She was also the daughter of the former Vice President of the United States, her boss. They'd attended the same private schools, their lives weaving parallel lines until her parents died and her life changed forever. As Everly's personal assistant, Rourke organized the chaos in her life, attended social functions, and kept her company during her travels. This particular night, her duties included crashing London's most ...more

What young girl, in fact what woman, hasn’t dreamt or fantasized being in Cinderella’s shoes after reading her story.

But this Cinderella-like story is as far from that fairy tale as you can get, for it’s one loaded with adult themes and interactions. Unemployed Rourke, besides having a huge amount of unpaid bills hanging over head, she’s got no place to live, when she sneaks into a masquerade party with her best friend, where secrecy as to who one is was the rule.

What an amazing, dramatic, energizing romance between Rourke Donahue and Prince Roman Menshikov. Rourke is a polished professional who can stand on her own. She knows when to give in and when to stand her ground. She is a little insecure about her looks but with encouragement accepts herself as she is. Roman is a powerful billionaire. He is a dominate alpha type and does not take no for an answer. He is demanding and gives no quarter to others feelings until Rourke enters his life. At first, she ...more
The first of this book didn't really hook me in at first - it was good, but felt like I had read a variation of the strangers meet, hook-up in a sex club too many times before. I became much more interested after they went their separate ways and were brought back together in a new way. I'm a sucker for the rude boss hero, and though he isn't really all that terrible compared to most books with that dynamic, I enjoyed it when he was rude and abrupt, brief as it was. Rourke, the heroine, stood up ...more

I enjoyed this story. I was a little worried as I've never read anything by Jeana Mann. The beginning starts out pretty spicy, but then the plot, relationship and character development got going in "real life". I really liked the banter between the two. There were two areas that I didn't care for that lowered this read by a star. The first thing is the whole Russian "Prince" which is a title that equaled about an Earl, and was pretty prevalent through Russia in the 1800's in the nobility. As wel ...more

Take me to a place where I can hide behind a mask and let my inhibitions run free. This is where The Exiled Prince will take you. Attending a masquerade bachelorette party, Rourke puts her trust in a masked dominating stranger. Rumor has it, Roman Menshikov, business mogul may be in the mix. It's only meant to be a one-time thing. After that, her boring life in New York will go on.

Will the secrecy of their meeting keep the allure of their fantasy going?
This is my 1st book by the author and will definitely look for another as I love an author who writes in dual point of view. This is a Cinderella-like story but instead of a glass slipper, it is a tube of lipstick. Rourke crashes the masquerade with her girlfriend and unknowingly meets Roman, the host. They have a quick tryst in his castle playground until Rourke has to leave, never knowing each other’s identities. With her

I received this book as part of an ARC review. I really liked the characters of Rourke and Roman. The story drew me in and kept my interest all the way through. A chance meeting in the middle of an exclusive masquerade party leads to a hot encounter between Rourke and Roman without either saying who they are. They go their separate ways but never forget the other. Roman despite agreeing not to try to find her, tries. Rourke is offered a chance at a new job and accepts. She is surprised when she ...more

Rourke is about to head back home after working for boss/ Friend for the past 6 years. So for her last hoorah she attends a masquerade ball I hopes of meeting someone and having a one night to remember.

To kink or not to kink?

I really enjoyed this book. It was great writing style and the author is truly able to grab your attention and not let go. Overall, I would highly recommend this book.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is due to the kink, or lack there of.
I don't understand how this story started with that one kink scene then went to vanilla. To the point of even glossing over and simply insinuating the steamy aspects.

Cinderella Meets The Prince

A story that combines a prince and a billionaire in one book and is a fairly quick read. Interesting concept of an exiled Prince but it was never revealed what he was Prince of or why he was exiled.

Roman, the Prince, meets Cinderella, Rourke, at a masquerade ball. The relationship developed and continues in an unusual manner. You'll have to read the book to find out. Neither character or other characters in the book were fully developed. You find out more about Rourke

Their eyes meet across the room, something is pulling them together.

Beautiful written book that I just could not put down.

Sexy in a way only this author could pull off.
Roman was kind of hard to like, maybe because we the readers did not get a lot of feed back from him, only about three chapters with his insight about what he was really thinking for feeling. Need more of Roman personality with his POV.

Rourke, yes she is the female character of this book, was kind of out there. We read so many bo

Oh my, talk about hot and heavy. This is one exciting, intriguing, heart pounding, pulse racing, smooth flowing, page turning wonder that's as riveting as it is captivating. All the drama, heartache, fear, uncertainty and intrigue increases while tension spirals. Twists and turns, ups and downs, along with a few glitches and bumps make for one thrilling experience.

How can one night of letting go of your inhibitions cause you to relive it over and over again? At a masquerade party for an exiled prince, I crashed the party with a friend's invitation. That lead to one of the wildest, sexy nights of my life! Like Cinderella, I flew into the night. With no clue of who I hooked up with. Several months later, I'm practically homeless, and unemployed.

Rouke and Roman story was one twist of days after another that kept me guessing what could possibly happen next. I loved how Everly dragged Rouke to sneak into the mascarade. Their friendship throughout this story was heartwarming and entertaining. Rourke is a hard-working, determined and living character and I so wanted for things to go her way. Roman was an alluring asshat with a soft spot and some of his antics had me wanting to smack some sense into him. Nicky was a crafty fox, I feel like y ...more

I am reviewing this book after receiving a free copy from Hidden Gems Books.

It didn't take me long to read this book because I was hooked straight away. Roman and Rourke's relationship is sexy from the very beginning and as you read through all you want to know is what will happen next! There first encounter was pure sexual attraction but it was just a hook up between strangers. The way they reconnect and become each others weakness is pure love and romance.

I really enjoy how much strength Rour

Rourke crashed a party with her best friend and engaged in a tryst with a man that rocked her world! Little did she know that he would soon become her employer. Roman often thought of the woman he had a tryst with and searched everywhere for her. Imagine his surprise to find out that she is his new assistant. Rourke is the epitome of professionalism, ...more
