It was supposed to be a simple job. Go to the Winston Isles, stand in for my billionaire double for a few weeks.

But between the kidnapping attempt and accidentally falling in love with my bodyguard, things have been far from simple.

The good news, at least now the woman I love knows who I really am. The bad news is, no one else knows and someone is still trying to kill me.

I really enjoy reading books from this author! Her characters are complex and flawed. There is always something intense and engaging going on in her stories. I am never bored. And while I am usually very good at inferencing, I admit that this author tends to surprise me. Often predictability is commonplace in romance novels. So when I can be surprised; it's a good thing.

So, first let me tell you that this book is not a standalone. You'll need to read Bodyguard To The Billionaire, which is book o

Ok so now we have the conclusion to BodyGuard to the Billionaire and oh what a conclusion it is. I never saw it coming. Oh I’m not a complete incompetent I did have some of my suspicions confirmed but figuring it all out...not by a long shot! It is good! One of my favorite aspects of this author’s work is that she frequently brings back many of the characters from the other books and it always works. I don’t know how she keeps track of all the players and their parts and how they seamlessly fit ...more

This book was everything I wanted it to be and more. Theo continued being amazing. Zia continued being a bad***. And of course in true Nana Malone fashion, there were lots of new characters to peak my interest. One of them even turned out to be surprisingly likeable.

I absolutely love Team Winston Isles and I don’t ever want the adventures with them to end. I love the suspense and action and surprises I always get in these books. I never know what to expect going in and once it’s over I’m just in

ARC was generously provided for an honest review.

The Billionaire's secret is the second book in the series. It cannot be read stand alone as the book is in continuation of Bodyguard to the billionaire. You will have to read the first book to understand this book. I have to say this again that Nana Malone is a Great Author.

What I read was just Beyond Amazingness.

The story starts when Zia Barnes, the bodyguard, found Theo and Derrick on the beach together where Theo is trying to make Derrick alive

Main characters: Zia Barnes, Royal Guard and bodyguard to the rich and powerful. Theo Coleman, philanthropic businessman who’s been inveigled into playing stand-in to a member of the Royal household.

Why you should read it: Bodyguard to the Billionaire ended on one heck of a cliff-hanger and so if you've read it, you'll be desperate to find out what happens next. Zia and Theo have grown closer and closer despite the secrets between them, but now the situation has come to a head, with the appearan

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

The Billionaire’s Secret starts where book one (Bodyguard to the Billionaire) left us and wow, what a treat.

Theo is still as amazing as he was in the first but in this one, he goes through so much more and has to wrap his head around everything. Once they uncover what is actually going on it’s mind blowing and heartbreaking and I feel so much for him.

Zia is still as badass as always. The only thing that got to

Yes Yes and Yes this was a great conclusion to the story. Theo was the sweetest man so kind and always putting others first. There was nothing not to love about him. It also didn’t hurt that he was as hot as a habanero pepper. Zia annoyed me at times with her inability to learn from her mistakes but I get it. When love is involved you don’t always think straight. Derrick was like mold after awhile he grows on you😄. Actually Derrick was the classic example of what an adult looks like who as a chi ...more

Nana has fast become a one click author for me. This sequel has left me squealing with delight and needing a manicure after i have bitten off all my nails from anxiety.
No this is not a bad thing , especially when books transport you into their world and leave you feeling satisfied as all your questions are answered.

Theo and Zia's story pick ups where book one left off and you are automatically thrown into the web of angst and mystery needing to know who is after Theo and Derrick. You must read

In my opinion this was a great read. There were Royals, strong women, humor and a lot of love. In my opinion Nana Malone did a really good job of hiding the villain. I had my suspicions but wasn't sure till the end. I give Nana Malone a well done on that, usually I do a good job of figuring out the villain. Not this time. I have to say I was surprised and I wasn't surprised. I really liked Theo he was an all around good guy, I appreciated him putting everything before himself. I loved Zia's toug ...more

This is such a fantastic book. I loved staying on edge. Who wants to harm Theo and or Derrick? They look so alike, they could be twins. Why does Derrick’s Dad seem to hate him? Loved how hard Theo and Zia fell for each other. They are so good together, Derrick wants someone like her now. Didn’t expect to cry but I did towards the end. We do get a very happy ever after but it does look like there could be more to this series, I can’t wait. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly ...more

I hope your ready for the second part of this rollercoaster. If you read part 1 of this duet then keep reading if you haven't you need to read it

Now saying that you are going to need to hold onto your kindle or e reader tight there's twist and turns that you won't even see coming even if you think you know who's done it.... Now I want to say more but the book will tell you way more than.I can!!!

Gotta say, this is probably in my top 3 fav duets of this series!

I simply loved Theo. Seemed organic and real.
I ended up loving Derrick too!!!

And Zia + Theo is magic!

I love the set up for the future of the series!

Great read! Highly recommend!

Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had been waiting for the second book from Nana Malone’s Royal Elite Billionaire Duet, The Billionaire’s Secret. Malone left us on quite the cliffhanger with the first book, and I was anxious to find out how it was resolved.

And resolve it she did.

Interestingly enough, Malone began the resolution fairly quickly in the story, although the big reveal, offering up the person responsible for trying to kill Theo and harm Derrick, doesn’t come until almost the end of the book

This is the surprising conclusion to the Billionaire’s Duet! Read book one, Bodyguard to the Billionaire first. Full of intricate details, but also love-and not just romantic love, but things that keep your faith in humanity. Family, friends, and crazy antics of a royal family and their bodyguards!

The secret is out! When we left book one, a big discovery had been made that was going to change a lot of things for our main characters. And while the “big” secret is out, there are still so many secr

At the end of the first book, all of Theo’s secrets were discovered and poor Zia was struck by a metaphysical train.

“Oh, trust me. I hear you. And you’re right. You are absolutely right. I need to be more careful. I really can’t trust myself. Theo might have all kinds of things to tell me, but it would be better if I stay away from him. Even if I wanted to listen. Even if I wanted to believe him. It would be better for ever

I know I have said it before. I hate cliffhangers. Try to avoid them at all costs. With this series and this duet, once again, Nana Malone has me HOOKED!

This is NOT a standalone. At minimum, you have to read book one, "Bodyguard to the Billionaire". This writer brings in a number of characters from previous books, which is great because you get to revisit the couples. After reading this duet, I think you may want to next read Sebastian and Penny's story, "Cheeky Royal".

I could not wait for the second part of this story to unfold. In the first book, Theo was paid by Derrick Arlington to pretend to be him for 30 days as he looked just like him (hmmm, wonder why?). He goes to the Winston Isles and all of a sudden he hears nothing from Derrick so he is flying blind with the business to run as well as relationships. He is attacked and Zia helps him and ultimately becomes his bodyguard. He didn't mean to fall for her. She didn't mean to fall for him. And then at the ...more

I received a new Advanced Reader Copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing it. This book wraps up Theo and Zia’s story beautifully. That’s what I love about this author. She knows how to tell a story. As you know, this is the second book in this series. The first book ended with us finally meeting Derrick. Thankfully, this book gives readers several points of view which made for a very well-rounded story. There is some serious hotness as sparks continue to fly between Zia and Theo but with ...more

The first book, Bodyguard to the Billionaire, presented the growing relationship between our bodyguard heroine, Zia, and her "protectee" Hero, Theo, although she thought it was, who we now know, his twin brother, Derrick. This book, continues where the last one left off, with Zia reeling from the realization that Theo has been lying to her this entire time. Their romance takes a side seat in this book because they're trying to uncover who and why someone is trying to kidnap and hurt both of them ...more

A captivating cast of characters and a perfect ending to a well written duet.
I'm not a huge fan of billionaires and the elite since I can't relate to their life styles but Nana Malone makes it work so fluently.
In this second part Theo has taken Derrick's place and things are getting interesting.
Abduction, lies, love and family makes this a fun and touching read.
I was surprised that I liked Derrick so much. After learning more about him I understand why I found drawn to him.

The Billionaire's Secret is the on going series of the Team Winston Isle, you just have to love all the craziness and debauchery that whole crew of the Royal family and King's Knights get into when someone is trying to kill them.

There were so many secrets uncovered that it was like one bomb right after the other. Zia and Theo's story was good but my favorite in this book was Derrick, Derrick really stole the show in this installment and I

FINALLY getting the finale to this duet! Picking up right where the previous book left off, the secret of Theo and Derrick are finally revealed to everyone involved and there is a range of emotions as a response, especially from Zia. With her past and finally letting Theo break down her walls, she feels betrayed and no longer trusts him even though she loves him. The bulk of this storyline is figuring out not only who knows about Theo and Derrick’s relation to each other, but also who has been t ...more

I am not sure which of the Winston Isles residences I love more or which of the characters from the several books. I do find that I am very much in love with the sexy twins. They are all that and some plus maybe a little bit more.

Getting down to what was really going on with Theo was a story all to itself. His connection or lack of to the royal family. His connection or lack of to the billionaire. The whole cliffhanger from book one flowed in to book two. I cheated because I went back and re-rea

Part two finds the real billionaire on the beach badly beaten. Saving him doesn't answer Zia's questions. Why is Theo he pretending to be someone else? Who is he really? and most important--why is someone trying to kill him? Then her own question to herself--how could she be so stupid to trust another man and fall for him? How could she risk her job for another lier?

The answers are complicated and surprising. Who wants him dead is the primary question. She still has a job to do. Protect him eve

Wow, what a fun, twisty, steamy conclusion to the Billionaire Duet series! This second book in Theo and Zia's story was an exciting journey that had several twists and turns that were so unexpected. This story picks up where Bodyguard to the Billionaire left off.

The Billionaire’s Secret is the perfect conclusion to the Billionaire’s Duet. I loved Theo and Zia in book one and this is a continuation of their story. Derrick, however, is the character in book two that we have the chance to find more about. I feel bad for all he has had to go through and all he has missed out on in his life and I hope he finally gets his own story and finds his happily ever after.

When book 1 ended, the bodyguards watching Derrick Arlington find that there are 2 of them. Derrick has been in hiding (he was actaully kidnapped) and his twin brother Theo has been impersonating him.
Now both twins seem to be in danger and no one can decide who is behind the dangerous plot.
