5* Review: THE WILD HEIR by Karina Halle


Author: Karina Halle

**A standalone royal romance**

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 façade 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**

My take…

I usually don’t read the “bad boy” romances. Sometimes they can be a little too angsty for me. But just coming off the British royal wedding and seeing this one floating around fb, I thought I’d give it a shot. Super glad I did too. And I think it was my first Hale book to read as well. .

I really like this authors writing and flow. And she had me caring about the characters straight from the start. Especially Elle. I hated that she was treated the way she was at college. And even with Magnus being the way he was I still liked him. He wasn’t afraid to give back what Elle dished out towards him. Match made in royal heaven.

The romance was fun, sassy and so intense. The story was the same. And even though I saw the twist coming at the end, I was pleased how the author played it out and wrapped it up. I look forward to checking out more from her. 5 Stars!
