One error in judgment. That is all it took.

They say don't mix business with pleasure, but I fell in love with the client and now I’ve lost her.

But I would do it all over again if it meant keeping her safe.

Now I’ll have to fight like hell to earn her trust again. If I don’t, it could cost both of us everything.

Gah this woman can seriously write amazing books!

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

After finishing the first book in this series I just couldn’t wait for the second book to come along, I absolutely love this series, I love the royals and the bodyguards and everything that comes along with this amazing series of royals.

Book two starts off where book one finished and boy, I have to say this woman is so damn stubborn. Neela has grown up with guards being around her dad and doesn’t trust

Tempting the Heiress is book 2 in the Heiress Duet, and you absolutely need to read book 1 before diving into this electrifying and exciting must-read!

Wow….that’s really all I can say after reading this book. WOW! There’s drama, mystery, danger, and shocking twists and turns that have you sitting on the edge of your seat with anticipation! The character dynamic between Jax and Neela was brilliantly written, as well as the tension and conflicting emotions that accompanies the enticing plot line.

Tempting the Heiress picks up right where Protecting the Heiress left off, with Neela upset and Jax trying to figure out what to do. Will these two ever be on the same page? And what of Jax' ultimate goal of re-joining the Royal Guard? Can he do that AND have his family of Neela and Mayzie?



I SOOO LOVE Nana Malone's royal stories, and I think this duet is probably her best royal story yet. Jax and Neela are such a dynamic, passionate couple. Plus there's suspense and some intrigue mixed in with

Tempting the Heiress is the second book in the Heiress Duet and boy oh boy was it out of this world. Once I started reading this book I was absolutely hooked and could not put it down. Book 2 picks up exactly where book 1 left off, so you definitely need to read these in order.

Jax: Yeah yeah yeah--don't fall for the client. Who are any of the protectors, bodyguards, etc. I know to talk. Half of them are married to their "protectee". Things were going okay, I mean great in the bedroom, the baby is irresistible. Then--she found out I'm more than a manny. Truth is on top of her list of must-haves. I knew not telling her was going to backfire. Didn't know it would hurt so much.

Neela: I should have known--inside I did. What big gorgeous guy like him is going to be the baby

You know you've just finished a good book when the first words out of your mouth after reading the last words of the book are an expletive. And that word is said with smiles and happiness and that satisfaction only a good book can provide. That is exactly what happened when I finished Tempting the Heiress.

Tempting the Heiress begins where Protecting the Heiress left us hanging. Neela feels betrayed and is kicking herself for being so naïve as to believe that someone like Jax would be a Manny. There is nothing she would like more than to kick her out of her life, but she knows she must put the safety of Mayzie first.

Jax feels remorse for getting involved with Neela without her knowing the truth. He is determined to show her that although their relationship may have started with a lie that the feel

The man who thought he had nothing to lose, discovers what it means to have a family. Jax is all about the risk, but he's gained a love he refuses to lose. Tempting the Heiress thrills, chills and reveals. Ariel and Jax are on the cusp of gaining forever or losing it all. Malone continues to roar her way into emotions with her larger than life characters. Even at their most flawed, the pull is hard to resist.

Neela gives Jax a run for his money in this second book of the duet. Jax had one directive, to not sleep with Neela, but really how can you stop two polarized people from not crashing together. Now that the deed is done, they have to navigate their attraction, protect Mayzie and solve the ledger, really, how hard could it be?

In typical Ariel fashion, chaos ensues and there is a race to decode the ledger and keep everyone in one piece. Oh, and fall in love. Jax is so hunky swoon worthy. Neela is

This duet was my first read by Nana Malone and I love her writing!!!

I couldn't wait to see how Neela and Jax's story ended. I was on edge and couldn't wait to see the mystery unfold. I love the characters and it seems like there is so much more to this crew!

A great read, would definitely recommend this series.

This book picks up right where book one left of, as is typical of a Nana Malone Duet book. Lots of plot twists and so many interesting characters. If you’re a fan of Ms. Malone, you’ll be rewarded by all the mention of related characters to the Winston Isles sagas. While this duet can be read as a stand alone, you might as well succumb to the allure, and be prepared to indulge in dive into the many books related to these two books.

And the author does it again. Protecting the Heiress set us up like pins in an alley, and then along came this one; the bowling ball that expertly knocked us all down for 10 points.

Poor Neela didn’t know whether she was coming or going in the first book, amp that up to a factor of ten and Neela is continuously scrambling for information behind the curve. Almost everything she believed in or knew was questioned or turned upside d

Tempting The Heiress by Nana Malone was one adrenaline filled exhilarating ride. I was literally biting my nails and swooning over Jax and Neela all the time. I haven't read any other author who can mix contemporary romance and thrillers so effortlessly with perfect balance.

The second book of a duet, Tempting the Heiress is about tying up the loose ends. Both in the secret mission and the lead couple's life. Neela knows now that Jax is not a Manny. The cat is out of the bags and she hurting from

Jax Reynolds continues us on the journey that was started in book one. He feels remorseful about what happened. Neela Wellbrook is not happy about what has been revealed. Ariel Scott still seems to have a supporting role here but she seems more of a conductor to those around her.

This story had me thinking of a movie mashup. With the last book I thought of Vin Diesel in The Pacifier. This time I thought to mix that with Kingsman: The Secret Service. All the action and suspense k

Tempting the Heiress by Nana Malone is the second book in the brand new Heiress Duet. Picking up where Protecting the Heiress left off we are smack dab in the middle of all kinds of drama.

Neela knows the truth about Jax and the rest of her "nannies", the threat against her and/or the baby is still real and looming, and now she has to leave the one place she felt safe and leave her business to be run by her two best friends/employees. She knew raising a child wouldn't be easy but she didn't ex

Really enjoyed this book. As usual the author didn't fail to deliver. It had intrigue, mystery, romance, villains, twists and turns, beautiful scenery and heat, really good heat.
I was really happy to see characters from previous books intertwined into the story. I love when we get to read about people from past books that I’ve come to love.
One of my favorite aspects of this authors stories is that she writes kickbutt, smart, women in her stories. Each character has their own flaws, but seriously

Things take a turn for the worse and both Neela and Jax have to go into hiding/on the run together, Neela isn’t particularly happy with this as she’s still trying to deal with the betrayal and lies, however, she knows she must do what’s best for Mayzie.

Tempting the Heiress is the conclusion to the Heiress Duet but the continuation to the Winston Isle Royal family and friends. I enjoy reading these books due to the hot steamy sexual tension that Nana provides between her main characters Jax and Neela, but also because of all of the espionage activity and comedy that occurs throughout the story. Though there are similarities among the story lines there is an abundance of action pack spy/criminal adventures that will have you glued to the books.

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.
