I never DNF books, and I'm not really considering this a DNF 'ed book, but it was very clear within the first chapter or so that I was missing information and that these characters have shown up in the authors world somewhere before this. I was just confused with information that was being thrown onto the pages about events or other characters I knew nothing about. I tried to read on for as long as I could to see if we would find anything out, especially about how the hero

When I first started this royal series and found out Nana Malone was writing Roone’s story I got super excited.

After loving Sebastian and Lucas I KNEW i was gonna love Roone and damn, I was right. This guy is something else.

He’s charming, cocky and damn sexy. Being close to the King Sebastian and Prince Lucas they trust him with protection on the lost princess but the last thing he ever expects is to fall for her

I absolutely loved this book. I couldn't even begin to tell you if I loved Roone or Jessa more, but I know I loved them both.

This book was honestly full of lots of great characters. Ariel was just as fun to read about as Jessa and Roone. She felt just as important to the story line and my overall enjoyment.

Another element, besides the romance of course, that I loved about this was the mystery and suspense of it all. There were a lot of twists and turns and plot lines, but not in a confusing way

Each royal duet Nana Malone writes just gets better and better!

Royal Tease was intriguing, seductive, and a completely alluring forbidden romance! If you’ve read the previous duets, Royals Undercover & Royals Undone, then you’ll know this is Jessa’s story. And just like the previous books, this story is full of unknown threats, secrets, and undeniable passion.

Jessa and Roone have a unique relationship. From the get-go, I was completely smitten with Roone. I mean, COME ON….a man who dedicates
Nana Malone has captivated me with this series of royals and all of their scandals, illicit affairs, and crazy suspense. Royal Tease is the story of the lost princess and the ohhh so broody royal guard Roone, i thought Lucas story was my favorite but Roone and Jessa have basically taken this series to a whole other level.

I enjoy that Nana writes strong female leads and that she doesn't follow your basic romance protocol when boy meets girl. Roone is supposed to get close to the lost princess on

Roone's mission: protect the long lost princess, Jessa. Now, how best to ingratiate himself with the feisty, independent woman without giving away his true identity? Or even more pressing, without losing his heart to her, to the princess who happens to be his best mate's sister. Yep.

I love Nana Malones' royals! First Sebastian, then Lucas and now best friend Roone. Don't tell the king and the long lost prince but I think Roone has them beat in the swoony, cocky & adorable department. Paired

Oh what a delicious tale of intrigue and scorching chemistry. A royal bodyguard, guarding the long lost princess, unbeknownst to her, struggles with his feelings from day one. His bestfriend, the King would most certainly not approve so he desperately tries to ignore it. All that accomplishes is to annoy the ever loving heck out said princess.
The brooding, contrary man that is trying to steal her clients and manhandle her and tell her what to do. Arghhhh. A life on the run, from imaginary dange

4.5 Royal Stars!
I absolutely adored this forbidden romance! It was funny, sweet, breathtaking and very sexy! We first met Roone as Sebastian's best friend and Royal Guard in the Royals Undercover series. He always intrigued me, and I was very excited to finally read more about him. Roone is direct, honest, chivalrous, and very sexy. When he accepts Sebastian's request to protect the royal Princess, Jessa, he never imagined she would challenge him like she did. She was feisty, smart, and connivin

To write a credible royal romance is not as easy as it seems. And this new author for me, did a good job. Beside the classic trope when it comes to royals: protective them, there is a very entertaining push and pull game of mutual attraction and deep frustration between Roone ( the bodyguard ) and the princess, Jessa.
Seeing them interact from the very beginning is sexy, funny and so challenging.
The both characters are really dynamic, so expect good stuff from those two;)
Jessa is a very ambitio

How STEAMY HOT are these Royals?!?!? Nana Malone has once again proven they are FIRE HOTTTTTT!!!

Royal Tease was as complex, intriguing, and sexy as sin! I LOVED every moment of this
forbidden romance! This time we get Jessa and Roone's story.

Jessa and Roone have quit the unique relationship. She's a princess who doesn't know she's one, he's undercover to keep her safe. I LOVED Roone!!! He's a complete and total alpha male, he's sexy, intriguing, and charismatic. How can a woman resis

Nana Malone's Royal Tease is the beginning of the end for Roone; Sebastian's loyal bodyguard and best friend. Roone is sent undercover to protect the Lost Princess. With Ariel leading the mission, Roone is already a wreck. But, when he meets Jessa for the first time, he knows that he is going to have to fight to not end up like Penny, or worse yet like Lucas, in love and acting like a fool!
Jessa has been raised knowing how to defend herself and knowing how to run. Always thinking that her father

Un-freaking-believable. I cannot believe the author left me hanging like that. How could she? I mean, is he or isn't he? I feel like I'm swinging from a trapeze with no net below and praying I don't fall. This story is incredible with suspense, mayhem, love, adventure, lies and half truths, and secrets.

Will Jessa and Roone survive all of the lies and secrets? Was her father as paranoid as everyone thought or was he more sane than believed?

Stay tuned for the conclusion to this story. If you don

I've heard love described as a losing game. Although there may be some truth to that, I have always thought we give out what we take in. It's easier to fall in love, but not so easy to walk away. We enter romance seeing what we want to see, but when we walk away we leave strong feelings behind. Royal Tease is the story of two strangers trying to make sense. Jessa and Roone are thrown together with the best of intentions and torn apart by deceit. Malone is masterful when it comes to seducing her ...more

Nana Malone I could kiss you right now.
Thank you for bringing Roone into our lives. And let’s not forget Sebastian and Lucas.
When we first meet Roone in Cheeky Royal I was secretly hoping Roone would get his story. He’s ex SAS soldier, charged with protecting the King. He’s a bit moody at times but 100% alpha male. What’s not to love?
I loved everything about this story. Roone and Jess’s are perfect together. Why can’t they both see it. I think I need to bang their heads together.

This series just keeps getting better and better! I have loved all of the books that follow this group of characters. It all started with Cheeky Royal in the Royals Undercover Series and has expanded into one amazing story after another. I highly recommend reading the other books that go along with this one first. You will love the story that much more when you know what all is going on from the beginning.

Just when you thought this series could not get any better. Malone Squared hits you right between the eyes with this one. This book will have you laughing, crying, horny and breathlessly awaiting the next book in this series. They definitely do good cliffhangers. This series takes a deep look at Roone who is sent to protect Jessa, the lost princess of Winston Isles. We all know how it is supposed to go, but does it ever go that way. Roone is straight-laced and by the book type of guy. Jessa is n ...more

Page turner. Fun. Royal. Beauty. Excitement. Nana Malone has done it all over again. This time we get a royal she. . .

Jessa was all that was strong, independent, smart, sassy, sexy, feisty, self-assured . . . and a challenge for one Roone. These two together find that this was not just a simple little game of life. There was so much more. Dive in and see what Jessa and Roone have to show you and do be ready to be on the edge. There will be more to come.

Every once in a while you come across a book that gives you a character that you can connect to, that you feel that connection with and thats what I get when I read this story about Jessa. It was a great read and getting to the end to see what happens between the two was very good.

Holy cow!! I adore this series and the first part of Jessa and Roones' story did not disappoint. It was sassy and funny, sweet and romantic with just enough suspense to suck you in. Roones' inner dialogue was epic. I was excited the Ariel is back. That ending, OMG. I need more...

Roone Ainsley is protecting again. Only this time the mark doesn't know any of the truth. Throw into the mix that she's cagey and unpredictable and what you have is more explosive moments than ACME TNT.

Jessa is at the top of her game. The gold standard for the firm, she takes no prisoners and has a no-nonsense attitude. She's suspicious of everyone, apart from a select few. Making getting close to her harder than anyone could i

Royal Tease is book one in a new series by Ms. Malone. And despite knowing that, I wasn't prepared for the cliffhanger at the end. So there's your warning. Otherwise we find our characters trying to overcome childhood issues to find love and how to balance work and love.

Oh, the intrigue. Roone is undercover to guard Jessa. Jessa has no idea she needs protection. And despite Roone's misgivings and requests, he has to do his job without letting Jessa know. That creates a bodyguard/royalty/work ma

This was an exceptional and mesmerising story and one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. The plot has a lot to offer and is very intriguing. More importantly and totally unexpected is the conclusion, which definitely leaves behind an air of mystery. There are so many facets to the book that when combined bring together a very captivating and enthralling story, which held my interest throughout. This is certainly a book I would have no hesitation in recommending.

Roone, the protector. He is best friends with and security for King Sebastian and Prince Lucas.

They have a sister, Jessa - she doesn't know who she really is, and Roone (along with Ariel) have been sent to London to protect her from a danger that they aren't sure of. Roone goes in undercover to work along-side Jessa and they have this wild chemistry between them. He is very overprotective and she feels she doesn't need protecting, that she is a strong woman and can take care of herself.

If you love all things royal, then I’m sure you have been reading this royal series by Nana Malone.  The latest, Royal Tease continues with the King and Prince finding their sister.  Of course, being a Winston, she is not going to come back to the island very easily.  Malone writes this story with lots of action and several great female characters with spunk that just aren’t going to wait around being the damsels in distress.  With fiery banter and lots of sexual tension between Roone and Jessa ...more

Oooh, that’s a tricky one. Especially when the sister is not only as sexy and as hot as hades, but someone of royal interest, and the hero is meant to be covertly protecting her.

I haven’t read the first two duets in this royal series, but apart from some intriguing references to the past, I didn’t find it hard to come in with this book. That being said, I’m sorely tempted to back track, but I digress. While our hero is in protection mode, our leadi

Goodreads Librari...: Create A New Series - Royals United 2 14 Sep 02, 2018 05:53AM  
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.
