A ROYAL STANDALONE ROMANCE from the NYT Bestselling Author of The Pact, Bad at Love & The Swedish Prince

At first glance I probably seem like any good-looking guy in their late twenties. I have an obscene amount of confidence, a tattooed body sculpted by the Nordic gods, and I love the ladies as much as they love me.

If I’m not BASE jumping or car racing, I’m chasing other devious thrills with the woman of the week. And that’s fine if you’re the average single guy.
But I'm not the average single guy.

​I’m Crown Prince Magnus of Norway and my latest scandal just landed my entire royal family in hot water.

Now the only way the monarchy can save face is for me to smarten up – publicly. If I don’t, I’ll no longer be heir apparent to the throne. So it’s either I abdicate my future role as King or…
I get married.
To a blue-blooded stranger.

Enter Princess Isabella of the tiny country of Liechtenstein.

Quiet, intelligent, and uniquely beautiful, Ella doesn’t like this arrangement any more than I do and she’s not afraid to show it. She says I’m a womanizer, that I don’t take anything seriously, that my ego should be taken down a few pegs, and I think she aims to make me miserable for the rest of my life.

But even as our arranged marriage becomes a war of wit and words, I’m determined to break through Ella’s prim and proper fa├žade to find the wild​, sexual​ and risk-taking woman underneath. I want to uncover the Queen inside her.

The only question is – will she let me?

**The Wild Heir is a standalone royal romance and a spinoff of The Swedish Prince but it is not necessary to read that book beforehand as The Wild Heir is about different characters**

Ever since meeting Magnus in The Swedish Prince I have wanted to know what made him tick! He was the confident, cocky Prince that was always ready to party. However in The Wild Heir, that partying prince soon realises that he needs to rein it in and find himself a bride.

I loved seeing the change in Magnus; he knew that he got himself into trouble, and was willing to step up to repair the damage that he'd done. Although the plan scared the crap out of him, more so than jumping off a cliff, he was willing to do it, not only for himself, but his family too.

The perfect choice for him was Ella! I loved how she came in to their initial meeting and was determined not to fall for his charm. She knew he was a playboy and an adrenalin junky Prince, but she was willing to stand her ground. She was a sweet girl, that I adored because she wasn't one to back down and really challenged Magnus.

The more time that Magnus and Ella spent together, you could see this unconventional pairing was turning into something real. They supported one another through a few tough times, and the chemistry was smoking!

Again I love the way Karina Halle is mastering these lighter reads. I've fallen for each of the couples so far and I am dying for more! I damn well hope we get King Aksel's story next! I need to know more about him! 
*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

Two swoons today, the first one made my heart melt, the second on is fun and flirty!

“... when I see you, you’re all I see.” I stare down at her lips. “I know that doesn’t sound like much, but to me, it means everything. You’re starting to mean everything to me.”

“What happened to the old Magnus?”
I stiffen. “The fun one?”
“You’re still the fun one. I mean the man-child. I only now see the man.”
I lean down and rub my lips along hers. “Oh, I’ll show you the man, all right.”
