I was really looking forward to getting into this one, and although it's around the 2.5 rating - I enjoyed myself in some occasions.
A Nordic King I'm going to keep this review really short.
This is my first Karina Halle book.
I've heard so much about how lovely her writing and her b ...more
This was a really cute read and I enjoyed it. It was a lot more saccharine at certain times than I was expecting (I always think of grittier romance when I think of Karina Halle, for some reason), but I had fun with it.
I am a sucker for the nanny/single dad trope...and you add royalty and an 10+ year age gap and I'm like a pig in shit. Speaking of pig. The pet pig Snarf Snarf was super cute.
Perfect for a day when you feel like something light and steamy. I will probably snag the other ...more

➽ KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS
A NORDIC KING: Is a full length, standalone royal romance novel by Karina Halle.
Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet ‘arsehole’ King Aksel from Denmark and Australian nanny Aurora.
Aksel King of Denmark runs a prosperous country at the age of forty and one of the youngest kings in recent history and has tragically become widowed, leaving two precious Princesses aged five and six, without their mo ...more
This book was so good. Aksel, the 40 year old, widowed King of Denmark is looking for a nanny for his 2 daughters. In comes Aurora a 26 year old nanny from Australia, who has lived for the past 7 years in Europe. Since the first moment they meet sparks fly between them. He's broody and rude by Aurora is no doormat and gives as much as she gets. I loved that about her! She truly couldn't care less that he is King and I think that's what draws Aksel to her at first. Even though th ...more
Love requires bravery.A sweet, low angst fairy tale with likable main characters, adorable kids, and a pet pig!
The plot is simple: Stoic, widowed king...
It was a tense, cold kind of attractiveness, like his face and body and spirit were forged in steel and you might turn to stone if you looked at him too long....hires nice young woman...
"You're full of light and energy and this house has been ensconced in darkness."...as his daughters' nanny. You can ...more
“I’m a king. And I belong to you in ways I never thought possible. More than I belong to my country, more than I belong to the people, I belong to you.”
This series is so fun and enjoyable to read. Or maybe it’s just a good fun way to avoid my responsibilities, but who cares, I’m enjoying it.
This one was just as good as the second book. It was fun, sexy, sweet, and so freakin enjoyable. It’s the kind of book you read when you wanna have a quick good time...or when you want to avoid your r ...more
5 "Once Upon a Dream" Stars!
OH MY GAWD! I think my heart just exploded inside my chest because of this book, THIS BOOK! King Aksel & Aurora are EVERYTHING!
Wearing his guilt like a crown, King Aksel never thought he would ever find his path to redemption until the woman he hired to be the nanny of his two daughters made her mission to light up his dark palace—and his heart.
As everything Karina Halle, the writing was extraordinary—addictive, and the characters unforgettable, Snarf Snarf ♥. Halle ...more

Hail to the King and his Goddess! Karina simply outdid herself with this one because, my God, what an amazing read I just experienced! The angst, the slow burn, the feels and the intensity of the chemistry between Aurora and Aksel made A Nordic King an absolute must-read, especially if you are a fan of royal romances and Karina Halle's contemporary stories. I do feel like Karina keeps gett ...more
What I loved:
* The H Aksel really tears your heart out. He's a great father. He's a man of deep, intense emotions. When he begins w ...more
For anyone who cares:
Hero is a bit older then the heroine (I think 14 yrs older?), a widower for two years and celibate. His wife whom he married because he was in love with her, cheated on him with another man and he has guilt feelings over her death - as well as anger issues.
He treats h ...more
It is a bit too dragging though. I wish the story can be more focus on Aksel past without Aurora past mix into the last minute.
But again somehow Miss Halle make it work.
“There is no one way to fall in love. It may scar you, make its mark, but that fall, that impact, is different for everyone.”
This book was on my tbr for such a long time that I just had to pick it up.
Aurora is a young nanny who moves to Copenhagen to take care of the two daughters of the King of Denmark, King Aksel, whose wife has recently been killed in an accident. We follow the progression of their relationship, as their aversion turns into a toe-curling romance.
There was a fourteen year span...more
It has been on my to-read list for some time, I've been very excited to read this. I've seen alot of good reviews on this book and I finally got to read it.
I've read a few books by Karina Halle and I just love her books. This book is by far my most favourite now though.
I was hooked straight from the beginning of this story and sometimes when I read a book I find certain parts either slow or boring but with this book I enjoyed it all.
A few parts in this book made ...more
This book checked so many of my boxes to make it a swoonworthy, heartwarming love story. Aksel is a handsome tortured king consumed by guilt because of the mistakes of his past. As a result he comes off as an angry jerk and is barely tolerable to those around him. Despite this, he always softens when it comes to his two little girls. There is just so ...more
Wow, a book with 4.2 rating and all my friends loved it! Must be awesome! And ah, awesome it was.
I have to give it that, the writing style was decent (first time reading this author too). And it wasn't bad for about, oh, say 55%. Then it became boring and annoying and, of course, the characters became a bit too idiotic.
Dunno why so many people loved it. Yes, he's a kind and she's the nanny. So what? Is that all it takes to make a book good?
If you do decide to try it, good luck and hope you en ...more
Karina Halle's royals are like none I've read before. A Nordic King is a complete standalone with no appearances from previous story characters. You can start here, or with The Swedish Price, or The Wild Heir and you're good to go!
Aurora James is an Australian in Europe living life as a nanny to wealthy families. She's between jobs when she gets a call to apply for a secretive charge. Two adorable girls without a mother in the Danish royal palace. What could happen?
"She gave me life again ...more
The truth is, Aurora, this living goddess in my home, is making me weak and for the first time ever, I have something to lose. Her. I can’t lose her. And I can’t keep her. I don’t know what to do.
A fiery nanny.
A widowed King.
Two adorable princesses.
The TENSION. The STEAM. The ANGST!
An unforgettable read!

“I am a king. And I belong to you in ways I never thought possible. More than I belong to my country, more than I belong to the people, I belong to you.”
Oh my god, THIS BOOK!!! You’re absolutely going to want to read this. It’s breathtakingly sweet and emotional, refreshing and riveting, funny and forbidden—basically every single spine-tingling goodness you’ll ever want in a juicy and epic royal romance! And not only that, it was also bursting with so much cuteness!

"She's Aurora. She's my reckoning and savior all at once. She's her namesake, those northern lights that brighten the darkest winter skies."
A Nordic King is the 31st book I read by Karina Halle. After so many books, she still manages to intrigue me with her writing. I can depend on Karina to come up with fun, sexy, and original story-lines/characters. That was also the case with this book. Normally, I don't really care for Royal Romances, however ...more
This book was a combination of so many things I love!
- A royal romance
- Cute kids and pets
- Forbidden romance
-Sassy h and Powerful H
