Rourke: As a celebrity personal assistant, I pride myself on professionalism. When a mysterious stranger offers to show me the wonders of a clandestine club at the masked ball, I jump at the chance. Because no one will know me, right? One night. No names. No faces. It should have ended there. I had

Quick, nice and interesting romance read.

3.5 stars, rounding up to 4 because I can!!! I totally enjoyed the premise of this story. A little mysterious, and a lot of sexy. Our heroine, Rourke, who leads a pretty laid back life, finds herself as a guest at a secret masquerade ball, where she meets not one, but two, very sexy and mysterious men. One sets her senses on fire, (the other sets her sense on edge) and she has quite a little dalliance with him, only to leave the evening in a very Cinderella fashion. Months later they cross paths ...more

Here we have the heroine who’s very much a pathetic woman with barely any sexual experience.
Next to her is the very much experience hero.
And I can’t also forget hero’s brother who’s also chasing the heroine because he and hero has some sort rivalry and he goes after every women hero has ever wanted. Hence why he slept with hero’s fiancé. This man likes to sleep with other men fiancés.
So basically hero is after the heroine because his brother saw her first

The Exiled Prince is a steamy electric read from the author of The Rebel Queen. Roman and Rourke meet a masquerade where everything and everyone are anonymous. Have a great time with a stranger, right? Imagine Rourke's surprise when, a couple of months later, said stranger is her new boss! The question is does Roman remember Rourke, or will the anonymous encounter remain a secret? This is an entertaining, sexy and mysterious story with witty engaging characters. It is entertaining from beginning ...more
3 1/2 Stars! Royal/ boss romance. I liked this one, it almost read like a harlequin romance or mills and boon, I loved those books. I liked the chemistry with Roman and Rourke. Great start to a series. ...more

Damn what a whirlwind of events. Typical Jeana E. Mann she always throws these curveballs that gets you more involved in the story.

Roman and Rourke met a masquerade ball where anonymity was mandatory. The chemistry was thru the roof electrical and steamy and as soon as it began it was over. Fast forward couple months when they run into each other again in the most unexpected way. Roman attitude wasn’t the best. He was a complete a-hole and I give Rourke credit for putting up with his bad

Rourke is about to live a magical night. Everly, her best friend as well as her boss, is taking her to an exclusive party that brings together the cream of society, the famous and the ultra rich all in one place. An exclusive and secret event, which for over a decade has been synonymous with success. An event whose host is none other than Prince Roman, a rich and mysterious man.

After the hearing all the buzz and praises about this book I was so excited for the ride I was told to expect. Unfortunately, another book/series that ended in the 'not-for-me' pile this year.

The whole Cinderella vibe pulled me in very quickly but after a certain point, I had lost my interest in the book. It's funny because books like The Exiled Prince are usually right up my alley. This one had hints of BDSM + voyeurism at the very beginning. Then it took a turn and entered into the

This book is so good! I loved it so much I’ve already preordered the next one. Roman is such an arrogant ass but he meets Rourke and she has the perfect attitude and sass to deal with him! I love their interactions. Roman steals your heart after you get to know him. This is such a fresh and different take on a romance novel and has everything you need. I can’t wait for the next book.

Well finally after a short spell of a book hangover I finally found a good book. I won't go as far as saying it is one of the best but I liked it nonetheless. The only negative thing I had to say is how the hell Roman make such a 180 with his attitude. I am just gonna pass it off as the influence of Rourke.

Excellent romance sometimes unpredictable
(First part of a trilogy but it can read separately)
I hesitated to choose this book initially, because I do not really like the variations on Cinderella, but finally, I was not disappointed by the style and the beginning of the plot that I think must continue in the others books of the series.
One of the disconcerting points is the way the author makes her characters interact; The first chapters directed me towards a BDSM narrative, but then evolves

What you need to know:

*This is a standalone contemporary erotic romance with a happily-ever-after ending.

*This is book #1 of a 4 book series.

*It was previously released under the title Sex, Lies & Lipstick as part of the Bad Boy Billionaire Bachelors Boxset on Amazon KU.

This book...I loved writing it as much or more than PRETTY BROKEN GIRL. I wrote this book on a whim and it still haunts me. That's why I started the ROYAL SECRETS SERIES. There will be four standalone books, but you'll enjoy

This was little missing leading the beginning. I thought it would get a little bit dirtier after they meet at the masquerade ball. It had potentially too.

I did like the story and will sometime get to the next book.

All I can say is yummy! As I was reading Everly’s story, The Royal Arrangement, I was intrigued by Everly’s bestie Rourke and her mysterious husband. Now I got to read their story and see how the whole story started. I also got to meet Nicky and read about his shenanigans up early on the story line. This story was riveting!

Rourke and Everly are best friends. Everly is the daughter of the former US Vice-President and Rourke is her personal assistant. All this is about to end because Everly is

For seventeen of her twenty-six years, Everly had been Rourke's best friend. She was also the daughter of the former Vice President of the United States, her boss. They'd attended the same private schools, their lives weaving parallel lines until her parents died and her life changed forever. As Everly's personal assistant, Rourke organized the chaos in her life, attended social functions, and kept her company during her travels. This particular night, her duties included crashing London's most ...more

Having read The Arrangement and The Rebel Queen first, it took me a minute to adjust to the fact that the events of The Exiled Prince come prior to the other books. The Exiled Prince is the coming together of Rouke and Roman. Rouke is the former assistant to Everly (Rebel Queen) who goes to Roman's infamous masquerade party in London in place of another woman. When her Prince Charming shows her things that ignite her, she flees but can't stop thinking about him. Roman becomes obsessed with the ...more

I found this book in an Amazon recommendation email, and I decided to 1-click it. What I found was an enjoyable read with a feisty heroine who knows what she wants and a hero who is a worried parent trying to find his daughter. First though, we are treated to a masquerade ball with a hidden side of debauchery at an exclusive event where Rourke's best friend Everly convinces her to take advantage of the anonymity- and does she ever! Roman, the host and the titled exiled Russian prince, is ...more

One crazy and supposedly incognito night turns into so much more for a personal assistant and an exiled prince.

Rourke snuck into the event of the season, knowing the mask would help to protect her identity. When she’s swept up into a night of debauchery and intrigue, she knows she should say no, but chooses to live in the moment for one night only before getting her life in order.

Typically bored by the event he hosts, Roman never attends, but there is something about the masked beauty who he

What happen when the secret masquerade ball hookup will lead to complications with your new boss? If you want to find out you'll definitely need to read "The Exiled Prince".

Jeana E. Mann has that ability to throwany curveballs at reader who is reading story written by her. And same thing happened this time which made me even more involved with this amazing story.

This is a new author for me and I really enjoyed this story, although I found it a bit slow to start.

Rourke works for her rich best friend and ends up going to a masquerade ball with her unexpectedly, where anonymity is a prerequisite. Roman is the billionaire exiled Russian Prince who arranges these balls, but as a rule never attends. Rourke is caught up with another mysterious male lavishing his affection on her when Roman spots Rourke and knows she's not the woman she is pretending to be but

Cinderella goes to the ball and has some fun with Prince Charming:) A story of two people hooking up anonymously at a gala and discovering how well they really fit-even while not knowing each other's identity.

What young girl, in fact what woman, hasn’t dreamt or fantasized being in Cinderella’s shoes after reading her story.

But this Cinderella-like story is as far from that fairy tale as you can get, for it’s one loaded with adult themes and interactions. Unemployed Rourke, besides having a huge amount of unpaid bills hanging over head, she’s got no place to live, when she sneaks into a masquerade party with her best friend, where secrecy as to who one is was the rule.

Even the most hard girl cannot help but fall in love with a story that takes on the Cinderella factor, which means, I wasn't immune to The Exiled Prince's charms. It all starts with Rourke sneaks into a masquerade ball that she wasn't invited to, but her best friend got her in despite that. She's affected by a masked man, the organizer, who has her feeling feelings that she never expected to, but when the night's over, she believes that situation is over as well. However, fate takes a backseat ...more

The Exiled Prince (Royal Secrets #1) by Jeana Mann is the story of Rourke and Roman. I first met them in The Rebel Queen duet. If you haven't read the books do so. The story is really good. Rourke is the best friend to Everly. When the two of them go to an exclusive masquerade party, Rourke comes in contact with the man of her dreams. She has one magical night with the mystery man before she returns to her life. Rourke now needs to find a job, a place to live and figure out how to keep her ...more

What an amazing, dramatic, energizing romance between Rourke Donahue and Prince Roman Menshikov. Rourke is a polished professional who can stand on her own. She knows when to give in and when to stand her ground. She is a little insecure about her looks but with encouragement accepts herself as she is. Roman is a powerful billionaire. He is a dominate alpha type and does not take no for an answer. He is demanding and gives no quarter to others feelings until Rourke enters his life. At first, she ...more

I'm still sorta new to Jeana E. Mann, having read the The Rebel Queen duet first, but that's where I first met Roman and as I read through that duet, I wanted to know more about him and was excited when I realized that's who this particular book is about. I love the mystery and intrigue that went hand in hand with what happened between Rourke and Roman at the masquerade party, as well as all the hot sexiness! And when true identities were revealed, somehow the chemistry between them ramped up ...more
