I was born to a crown that I don’t want.
My name is His Royal Highness Prince Stellan Augustus Løve. I’m big, brawny, and brainy. More importantly, I know that duty and honor come before what I want... but it’s so hard to be perfect.

When I meet pretty, pink haired, punk-rock Margot, I make myself a deal. I can have her… but only for one earth shattering night.

Proud, rebell

Disclaimer: I received an Advance Reader Copy at no cost from the publisher/author. All opinions in my review are my own.

This book was kind of a rush. Royal stories are usually hit or miss with me because I can find them unrealistic at times. I didn't ever really feel that with this book. At least, not as a whole. Sure, there were times that I questioned certain things in the story but I felt that the world-building adequately portrayed real-life situations. Even if those situations are out of

The Wicked Prince by Vivian Wood is 1st book in Dirty Royals series. This is Margot Keane and Stellan Augustus Love ( future King of Denmark) story. What a wonderful, wild, exciting read it was.
Margot meets Stellan (HRH) in America. She didn't know that he was royalty. They had this immediate connection, instant chemistry. They hooked up together and had a night of passion but things didn't end well. She ends up coming to Denmark for a work opportunity and is thrown back together with the sexy h

Stellen & Margot are magical, steamy, sexy fire!!

This is long overdue. I read this when it released but I couldn't find the words.

Listening to the audio book, as well as skimming the book again, my love for these two, and the upcoming stories, is reinforced.

From their instant chemistry when they met in New York, their hot hot night, the mess when reality intrudes, the unexpected reconnection, their antagonism to their fiery passion to their steamy bumpy journey to their HEA, I still love every w

Stellan is the heir to the throne and although he knows what that means for his future in the present he is well aware of his appeal to the opposite sex. Margot is a breath of fresh air from her hair to her attitude and she has learnt the only person she can count on is herself. Under regular circumstances these two would never have met but when they do the chemistry ignites until their evening comes to a premature end in spectacular fashion.

They never expected to see each other again but when s

The Wicked Prince is only wicked in the best ways possible! Stellan and Margot are HOT, HOT, HOT and their story will entrance you from the very start with steam and emotions. There are so many awesome elements that are thrown into this book and the author does a great job of breaking down the characters so you can put yourself in their shoes.

These two are complete opposites and from two VERY different worlds, but that is what makes the journey even more fun. All in all, I really liked the book

The Wicked Prince included the prequel, The Prince & His Rebel. If you have already read it, you can skip ahead to the beginning of The Wicked Prince. It was a comical and sexy continuation of the prequel! They certainly did not loose that magical spark!

Stellan was born to a crown he did not want. He spent years rebelling before he was forced to start taking things seriously. The one thing he never saw coming was a pink haired, feisty, bombshell. Margot came crashing into his life but unlike th

3.5 STARS

The Wicked Prince was a fun, sexy royal romance. The heroine meets the prince while in America. She has no idea who he is. They have a night of passion. She ends up moving to his country for a job. They end up forced together.

I kind of like how different the main characters were. They balance each other. There are interesting secondary characters. I feel like more and more I enjoy books that take me to a different place in the world.

I voluntarily read an early copy.

I was addicted to Margot and Stellan’s story from the get go! Their chemistry is felt immediately! It’s a constant struggle for both and the one thing that plagues them as reality sets in because the poor girl from America isn’t supposed to be the girl who holds the heart of the future king of Denmark!

Margot is an independent female who makes her own way! With her wild hair, out of the norm clothing she isn’t someone of extreme importance or so she thinks! But one wild night she caught the eye

From the eye-catching cover to the intriguing synopsis, The Wicked Prince had me hooked from beginning to the end. This steamy royal romance will leave you wanting for more.

In the story we get to meet Margot Keane, a New York journalist whose pink hair gives her a rebellious side to her. She is independent, outspoken and highly stubborn. It’s those qualities that manage to catch the attention of a handsome stranger at a venue, they drink a

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I have to say it was really good I really enjoyed the progression of the enemies to lovers romance. I came by this book because the prequel was in my recommendations and it sounded interesting. When it comes to books about royalty I am a little hesitant because they are not usually ones that I like and I don't usually find them interesting but this one was really good and I could not wait to see what was going to happen w

I absolutely loved this modern day fairytale romance! Everyone loves a royal love story with a prince falling in love with a commoner, and I am certainly no exception.

The Wicked Prince was not your typical royal romance.

Margot and Stellan started off as a flashbang that neither saw coming. Unfortunately their night ends with Stellan having to answer to his grandmother and Margot hiding out from the paparazzi. But, when an opportunity brings Margot to Denmark, she and Stellan are thrown together once more, and not at eithers request. Now they’ll have to spend the next month together acting like their one night stand never happened so they can both live up to

Vivian really nailed the promo for this- the color scheme, the teasers, and edits- she built a whole vibe that really got me excited to read this book!. New adult? Royal? Enemies to lovers? Sounds DECADENT!

The prequel is included (and is also available for free) so you get the full story with the Prince and His Rebel.

Our prince is Stellan of Denmark- weighed down by a crown he doesn’t want, but duty comes before all else. His orderly, royal world is rocked by gorgeous, feisty pink-haired Margot

I loved this Wicked Royal.

And what a great start Author Vivian Wood has made on her Royal series. This first book made a cracker of a pairing, and is an absolute battle of opposites. Rich vs poor. Anti-monarchic vs. The Monarch himself. An American punk inspired journalist vs. The Danish Royalty. What can go wrong?

Margot Keane grew up at the very bottom of society, working hard to obtain her degree in Journalism. She also holds a very independent anti-capitalist view on the social equality of we

I picked up Vivian Wood's "The Wicked Prince" because I am a big fan of royal romances in general. Basically, if the word "prince" or "princess" is included anywhere in the book's title or synopsis, I will read it. I'm drawn primarily to the fairy tale element of these stories as well as the chance to explore a lifestyle that is so completely different from my own.

What I most liked about "The Wicked Prince" is that while there is still a certain fairy tale element to the story, it explores the d

After reading the prequel for The Wicked Prince, I was excited to see how Stellan and Margot’s story would continue, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. When Margot and Stellan had met previously, Margot had no clue that he was a prince and was in line to be king. Their encounter did not end well and she doesn’t expect to ever see him again. When she lands a new job in another country, her first assignment is to write a story about the Crown Prince. Neither Stellan nor Margot is too ...more

"My fingers itch with the need to touch him, to tell him that things will be okay. Even though I know that saying that might just be a pretty, comforting lie."

4 Royal Stars! After reading this, I definitely need a prince in my life!

Stellan is the future king of Denmark, a job he's been molded for since he was born. And while he knows this is what he's been groomed to do, it's not something he's totally ready to do at the age of 26. Margot is a photojournalist and has several run i

Yes! Royals story... this enemies to lovers, is wit, have some fun and steamy scenes, good banter and a lot of romance. The story between the handsome Crown Prince of Denmark and the American commoner will leave swooning, in love and wanting more.

Margot Keane is a New York journalist with pink hair, which gives her a rebel vibe. She is also very outspoken, stubborn, beautiful and sassy. Prince Stellan Augustus Love has the full package, the looks, wealth, charms and the title. He was groom to be

Margot has always been aware of the difference between the haves and the have-nots. Considering she grew up a victim of the system designed to protect her, she's always conscious of the less fortunate. Falling for someone like Stellan -someone who has always been accustomed to wealth - forces her to reassess her beliefs in many ways.

Crown Prince Stellan has always been immersed in duty - his upbringing, actions, lifestyle have all been tailored in a way to usher him in as the next king. Most of

Webster defines a fairy tale as a a story in which improbable events lead to a happy ending. I usually love royal romances, but this started off on the wrong foot with me. Our heroine, Margot, and her college friend, Pippa, who is visiting NYC from Copenhagen happen to run into her friends who include our Hero, Stellan, aka the crown prince of Denmark, while they're out clubbing. They meet up again with the guys the next day, and I find it odd that Pippa never tells her good friend who Stellan r ...more

Loved Margot and Stellan's story.

The Wicked Prince which includes a prequel novella is Margot Keane - a photojournalist from New York and Stellan Love - the Crown Prince of Denmark's standalone story, which is part of the Dirty Royals series. 

Meet a stranger in bar, post a photo online, go back to their hotel, spend a steamy night together and it all blows up.

This turned out to be a really good book- it included the prequel "The Prince and His rebel", so if you missed it or want to refresh your memory you get to. The story starts out a little slow but picks up and moves along at a nice pace. Stellan and Margot are amazing characters with great chemistry. The journey they take you on has you laughing and wondering what will happen next. These two are total opposites but together balance each other. The secondary characters are interesting and add a lo ...more
