Move over Mia Thermopolis, there's a new secret princess emerging in Dirty Halo, book one of the Forbidden Royals Trilogy by Evie East. A promising start to what I foresee to be a thrilling series, you get nothing short of the royal treatment with all the drama, manipulation, and a mysterious threat to the crown. What more could you ask for when everything is at your fingertips ready for the taking.

Everyone wants to become royalty, right? Wrong

Dirty Halo was a phenomenal debut novel. I dont read a lot of royal romance but this surprised me to say the least. I cant wait to read more from Evie East. I highly recommend picking this up.

OMG!! Holy crap!! I am in total shock right now!! I am so blown away with Dirty Halo by Evie East that I have a total book hangover!!

Let me be clear you will get NO spoilers from me on this. Also this is a CLIFFHANGER! If you cannot read cliffhangers, turn away now!

Emilia knew who her father was but was under the impression he did not want her. She has lived her life in the shadows away from the royal family. Just th

Evie East is making her debut with a bang! This book is amazing!!! You may need the family tree that's in the first pages; I certainly did, the relations between the royals were a little confusing at first :-P 

Emilia lives like an ordinary girl but she isn't. She's actually the bastard child of the King's younger brother. After a tragedy that lives Germania without a King and Queen and the Prince in a coma, Emilia's father becomes the King. That's the time when her entire life has chang

If you are a fan of royalty reads then this is the binge you have been waiting for. Tragedy forces illegitimate child Emilia into the spotlight as a royal. Emilia is not prepared for the storm that is the aristocracy and the many players involved. Adding additional stress on Emilia is her feelings/attraction for her step-brother Carter Her only lifeline is her step-sister Chloe who is helping her adapt to this new life she is thrust into.

My Readultery Life Review

Royalty seems to be my favourite genre to read that this moment in time, and reading Dirty Halo was so good!! I’m in total shock at how much I enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2.

This book has so much going on in terms off drama, character manipulation and the dangerous threat to the crown. There was never a dull moment in this book and from the first page the action starts and doesn’t let up till the cliff-hanger ending, and what a cliff-hanger

If you're a fan of royal romance look no further... Dirty Halo was a wild ride from page one! An addictive page-turning romance about an ordinary girl who happens to be an illegitimate heir to the throne. Emilia's life gets flipped upside down when tragedy strikes at the castle, and the kingdom suddenly needs a new princess...

Throw in a scheming stepmother, a dangerous chess-game of politics, enemies around every corner, and a scorching hot forbidden love with her new stepbrother...

Wow! Dirty Halo captivated me from the first page! The ending blew me away!

Every girl dreams about being a princess, living in a castle with her prince charming. Living happily ever after. But sometimes things are not always as they seem.

Emilia is of royal blood but was thrown aside like trash by her royal father at birth.

When death strikes out at the royal family, the country is in chaos. They need a new leader. A new Princess.

Emilia is thrown into the life of royality. Her life started spirali

I went into this book with no expectations…Evie is a brand new author and I was going in with an open mind and ready to be a part of a great journey….thank you Evie East!!! What a good one out of the gate. I am not a fan of books based around royalty, just seems so unrealistic to me. When the hell am I can become some princess? Can never relate to that kind of heroine. But then she writes about about Emilia and this uber tyrannical royal famil

Dirty Halo is So Damn Good!!!

Wow...I’m blown away by how good this book is! All of the characters are so well written you feel like you known them and you experience their emotions from being immersed in their story to the point of not being able to put it down. I highly recommend Dirty Halo and can’t wait for the sequel! Thank you Evie East for this gem! I love it!!!

A crazy romance novel with royals! They are all over each other and full of passion throughout the novel, I recommend if you enjoy steamier stories.

I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

Emilia has a dirty secret. Oh no, wait. She is the dirty secret. Her father may be part of the royal family, but seeing as how she's technically a bastard (a label I hate) she isn't acknowledged and instead has spent her twenty years as a commoner. Until they need her that is. When the entire line, aside from her ailing dad who is now appointed king, is killed, all of a sudden Emilia exists. An heir is needed after all and it seems, in their eyes, she's better than nothing since there aren't any ...more
