There was a plot development and unexpected twists and turns.
However, as the story reached the end, there were so many issues left unresolved!
What happened to Nicky, Lance, Milada, Julie, with Roman’s country and crown?
It looked like the author was in such a hurry to finish it and didn’t care for following through the plot!!

*REVIEW* 💋💋💋💋

All is fair in love and war, or so, I have always been told. The War King is the final installment in The Royal Secrets trilogy. Roman and Rourke continue to contend with issues within their marriage and the world at large. Roman has been injured, and he and Rourke are separated. Rourke is having all kinds of problems with her fri

What in the world???? This whole time (three books) is about the war going on and the threat of killing them and then you skim to two months later and then four years later and nothing gets told to the reader about any of it. Wow.

Also, um..... when did the aunt die? I’m so confused as to why this wasn’t a bigger story. She was so important to Rourke and then we don’t even get information on her.

This series had so much potential. I won’t be reading the other ones. Such a waste.

I was so looking forward to this last book in the series. Disappointing is an understatement.
What happened ? Did the same author even write this book ? A lot of things just didn’t make sense.

“I’m not sure.” Seeing the operation in action brought the situation home. If I hadn’t believed it before, I believed it now. This was real. Roman had an entire secret life, one I’d never dreamed possible.”

And we come to the final part. The War King ends the story of Roman and Rourke. And if their lives were already in turmoil, it will get worse. The road to the happy ending will not be easy. For neither.

I really liked the plot twists and turns of this story and the character development. The writing was great too! I only wished there was more at the ending. There was some missing pieces I would have liked answered but I loved the HEA even without those pieces. I’ll read this author again in the future.

Great continuation of Rourke and Roman's love story..........will they become King and Queen?

I loved the final book, The War King, in this series. It is filled with all sorts of goodness - love, romance, intrigue, suspense, betrayal, espionage, murder and new life. I will say right off the bat that I loved the first book, The Exiled Prince, was disappointed in the second book, The Dirty Princess, and had my faith restored in the series in this book.

This book started with Roman being arrested and interrogated but then left in an alley after a beat down. I kept thinking, just tell her everything, stop with the secrets. He keeps putting it off and it is causing Rourke to not trust him. I do however get tired of waiting for her to move past this and let him back in so they can figure this out, share secrets and build on their relationship. The sex is as hot as ever. I hated how Spitz kept trying to convince Roman that Rourke was betraying him ...more

In this final book of The Exiled King trilogy, I expected more action, car chases, maybe a kidnapping and ransom, some drama and mayhem. What I got was mostly warfare between Roarke and Roman as they clear up their separation. They spend most of The Dirty Princess separated due to Rourke’s anger about Roman’s secrets. In this one, Roman’s secrets continue to come out but Rourke has already realized she can’t live without this man.

Okay.... I loved book one, book two I was annoyed with Rourke and book three Rourke redeemed herself. This is the last book of the series with Rourke and Roman. This is full of spies, espionage, betrayal, murder, war and the complications of a high-profile powerful marriage. For about two thirds of the book Rourke still annoyed me with her feelings of shame, guilt and sorrow over the things she did or the way she felt and thought about things. But then the story took a little turn and she became ...more

I read The Exiled Prince prior to getting the box set of all three books.  You can read my review of it HERE.

Dirty Princess picks up where Exiled Prince left off with Roman and Rourke hastily married and starting their life together.  Unfortunately for them, Roman has deep, dark secrets that he isn't trusting his wife with and they keep coming to the surface. 

Jeana E. Mann can weave a romance story around a bit of a political thriller really well.  There is a nice balance between the action with

Wow talk about action packed story

This is the final installment of Roman’s and Rourke’s story and boy was it a good story. It wrapped up everything from the last book and it revealed who the murderer was and who the betrayer was and boy did the plot thicken! I couldn’t put it down I just had to hurry and finish to get to the end of this mystery and I’m so happy that it had an epilogue. My only gripe about the book was in the editing of the book it had typos in some parts and words that didn’t qu

The final book in this Royal Secrets Series, its full of twists and turns, lies and deceit, betrayal and love, it will keep you in suspense right to the end.

Rourke and Roman and now separated, she can't handle any more of his secrets and lies from her husband, the exiled prince and warlord. She is also fighting with her best friend Everly when it turns out that Everly's father is not the man she thought he was, and turns out to be quite a nasty piece of work.

The War King was the stunning conclusion to Jeana E. Mann’s The Exiled Prince trilogy. It picks up where The Dirty Princess ends and cannot be read as a standalone.

Now that Rourke is fully aware of the life that Roman leads, it’s up to her to either walk away or fully embrace what it means to reign by his side. Once her decision is made, Rourke is reborn as an absolute queen, and I loved every minute of her transformation! Roman’s trust in Rourke is everything, and she is determined to prove th

I appreciated the way the author started this book where the last one ended and put our minds to rest almost immediately. I am not a fan of cliffys and cheating. Even though there were cliffys, the writing and storyline was so darkly romantic that I was hooked from the beginning.
As Roman and Rourke try to navigate through his messy past and current issues, their intense love for each other was always an underlying strength in this finale story.

Roman and Rourke are a mess, secrets are out, friends aren’t speaking to one another, and other are dead. Roman is recovering from an injury and Rourke is sorting through being separated from her husband. What an emotional roller-coaster, one moment you want to get off, the next you have your hangs up and enjoying the ride and then another you’re ugly crying to get off.

What can I say Jeana writes the best brooding, damage and ultra-alpha males there are out there. I enjoyed the twists and turns

This is the third and final book for The Exiled Prince trilogy. This is not a standalone read. This book continues to throw so much at you as you are madly turning its pages to see what happens next. Without spoilers, I will say this, Roman and Rourke's relationship takes a shift and it has Roman telling Rourke everything. Now with Rourke feeling like she has all the pieces to the puzzle she is truly able to become more of the strong, supportive woman that Roman needs by his side. I was looking ...more

The War King is the conclusion to the Royal Secrets #3 series.

I loved the conclusion to Roman and Rourke’s story. At the end of The Dirty Princess Roman and Rourke had separated. Rourke now knows how Roman made his fortune. It is fortunate that Rourke and Roman can’t seem to stay away from each other even though Rourke is still mad.

Rourke becomes a woman to not be messed with.

I really enjoyed reading this series and I give this book 4.5 stars.
