Possessive pain in my ass.
I know exactly what I don’t want.

I escaped to London under the cover of night, never thinking I'd run smack into a man who would turn me inside out.

I had a plan. Simple, really.

Step one: Follow my dream, away from from the demons of my past.
Step two: Land on my own two feet, preferably far, far, away from the man who hurt me and br

Nana Malone is new to me, and I enjoyed reading this story. London Royal is a story of something bad actually leading to something much better. Abbie has been in a traumatic relationship and is now chasing her dreams in London. Lex has baggage of his own and secrets in his past. The chemistry between these two is instantaneously smo

HOLY SHHHHHHHHHH!!! Nana blew it out the park with this one! Ladies prepare yourself for the London Royals and OMG will they be having you break out in a sweat! This book is so sexually charged...there is so much tension that I almost choked on it's thickness...*cough cough* no pun intended.

Honestly Nana really delivered on a great story, London Royal is a fresh new look on the royal family, an extension to the ones we alread

Gah! Nana Malone has done it again. She has brought readers back to the world of the Winston Isles crew, but with a twist. There's always a twist. The very telling of this story with Lex and Abbie was a twist, but that's just one of the things I love about Nana Malone's writing. Even when she's writing about the same group of characters just focusing on different couple, I still can feel like it's a fresh and unique story.

Once again I fell in love with the main characters and also got a little insight to

This is book one of a new duet and I loved it. Things get off to a entertaining and emotional start as the well written story starts to unfold. I thought Abby and Lex were likable, complex characters. My heart bled for Abby and I am rooting super hard for this couple to get their HEA. As both these characters have emotional baggage, you know they have a bumpy road to travel. Drama, secrets, tension, suspense, danger, emotional turmoil and an intense attraction keep things interesting and hold yo ...more

This is Nana Malone at her best. I am fascinated by Alexi and Abby. Both have their own individual complicated stories. Abby (Abena) is going through some really serious issues and is trying to get her life together. Alexi (Lex) has his own different set of problems and is just trying to keep his head above water. Of course they met and how they thought they were going to handle things is history. I don’t do spoilers because it’s not fair to the author. Besides where’s the fun in that? You need ...more

OMG, London Royal is very much the first book of a duet.

Blossoming romance that is still very much in the beginning stages at the book's end? Check.

Major secrets that are still secret at the end of the book? Check.

Vague, threatening feelings throughout the book? Check.


Trust me, book two ( London Soul ) cannot possibly come out fast enough! We get just enough o(

Wow, what a great start to the London Royal Duet. Lex and Abby both have their tragic pasts they are trying to move on from.

London Royal has everything we have come to expect from Nana Malone and these royals, suspense and intrigue that will keep the pages turning and characters with off the chart chemistry!
I love Abbie and Lex. Initially fate keeps throwing them in each other’s paths but the pull they have towards each other overpowers everything else.
They each have their own secrets to keep and it is just a matter of time before everything unravels. Abbie has the crazy, dangerous ex she is trying to get away from

CLASSIC Nana Malone! This one had all the things I've come to expect from this author and she does NOT disappoint! Intrigue, suspense, chemistry for days between these two, it may be slow burn for some but these two steam up the Kindle for sure before the first touch. So many secrets and layers of deceptions and omissions to unravel. Abbie touched me on a deeper level, her personal journey very similar to my own path so it struck some cords in me. Lex has the potential to hold her heart or break ...more

Nana Malone has done it again! I can not get enough of her amazing characters and every time I think everyone's story has been told we get to meet some new characters to fall in love with! London Royal is book 1 in this 2 part story. This book has it all! Amazing characters, fabulous writing, edge of your seat drama and some serious off the charts chemistry!

Whoooooo! You know I'll never NOT read a Nana Malone book, especially if it has any ties whatsoever to the Winston Isles royal family. I adore this world, these characters, and while this is a new formula for this Alpha royal to get his feisty girl, it's just as enjoyable to read and just as steamy!

Lex and Abbie are dealing with similar life issues, trying to avoid one another and the intense chemistry between them. As you can guess, this only makes the universe work a bit harder to

This is Part 1 in the story of Alexi (Lex) & Abena (Abbie).  It's a great start to their story.  Alexi holds a number of secrets which he has yet to reveal to Abbie.  Abbie has told him her secrets of an abusive relationship.  She is an emotional mess, and so is Alexi.  They each have to endure things just to get to a halfway decent place in their relationship.  There is a cliffhanger at the end.  I can't wait for the second part of this duet to come out so I can find out what happens.  It i ...more

Wonderful well-written storyline with great characters both main and secondary.  The main characters are developed, flawed,  working on their issues and had instant attraction to one another.   Trying to fight their feelings is not working, but truths are being withheld and danger lurks.  This book ends on a cliffhanger and I truly hope the next in the series comes soon.   I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.

London Royal (London Royal #1) by: Nana Malone  
Caught in a world that's spinning out of control, two strangers risk everything and fall in love. London Royal is the best of Nana Malone. Abbie and Lex write their own fairytale. In the dark moments, they find strength. In the lighter moments, they find hope. In every moment in between they capture your heart.

We are back to where all the royal Winston Isle adventures began. Even if you are familiar with Abbie & Lex’s original story then you are still in for a treat. I won’t spoil anything, but I will say there is more than information that just further adds to the story. I will admit I was a little anxious& in my feelings at first, but as I continued to read it is still the great story that I remembered. If anything, it put more things into perspective. I am looking forward to seeing how the ...more

I absolutely love these Royal Duets. Lex and Abbie are full of story, drama, and heat. This is Nana Malone at her best. Now we attempt to patiently wait for the next half of their story with another cliffy. Killing me Smalls. Keep them coming.

This is pure Nana Malone magic. The Winston Isles are missing, but the London theme more than makes up for it. Lex and Abbie are great characters, endearing and compelling. Beautifully wriiten and constructed, I loved this one so much. I can't wait for the next installment!

Nana Malone's stories always have this sensual, breathtaking and exhilarating feeling. And London Royal took it to a whole new another level. I gasped. I sighed. I cursed. I had this dreamy look in my face one moment and my heart was pumping from the dangerous turns in the very next moment. Nana Malone kept me on the edge with this explosive, dramatic, thrilling and passionate tale.

The story follows the lives of Abbie and Lexi. Abbie has finally left her abusive asshole boyfriend in USA and

"Instead, I'd kissed her - again. And not in that sweet way that said, 'I think I could care about you.' But in that desperate way that said, 'I won't be able to think about anything else until I'm with you.' Trouble had just landed on my doorstep."

London Royal is the first book in the London Royal duet series, written by Nana Malone. Believe it or not this was my first Nana Malone book I have read, and I surely was not disappointed! We start the book in the present day where we meet

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.
