Since when did being a royal knight in shining armor come with diaper duty?

- The Royal Mistake of a Lifetime: walking away from the royal guard.
 - The way back: Keep the unsuspecting, mulishly stubborn, astoundingly sexy, code-cracker, Neela Wellbrook and  
    her new inheritance (her best friend’s baby) safe from kidnappers.
 - The Catch:  Little miss codebreaker doesn’t think she needs a bodyguard.  So I’ll have to go undercover as a…

I do my job, and I get the chance to go back to guarding the royal family. I’m not at all worried that Neela is my new housemate. Or that I want her more than I’ve ever wanted anyone. Or, that I’m getting stupidly attached to the baby. 

Attachments get people killed. All I have to do is keep it professional.

Review: The Heiress Duet 1: Protecting the Heiress

Protecting the Heiress by Nana Malone is the first book in the brand new Heiress Duet. Since leaving the Royal Guard, Ariel has been putting together her own security firm. First employee - Jax. Previously of the Royal Guard, like herself, she knows that after what he has been through he'd do almost anything to get back into the elite Royal Guard. Including taking on his first job for her company as a manny!

Jax knows he is in trouble when he meets the client, or rather the woman (and baby) the client wants him to protect. It only takes one glance at Neela to understand on a visceral level that she could very well be his Kryptonite.

Neela wants one thing in life - peace and quiet in which to successfully run her business but with the death of her childhood best friend and the sudden guardianship of said best friends 13 month old daughter thrust upon her she is spinning out of control. Add in the almost kidnapping and the strange threatening letters and she is ever so glad she has such a capable and protective "manny" in the house. That is until she finds out who the manny really is. But let's face it - Jax couldn't keep the secret forever - he only had to keep his hands off the client. #MissionFail.

Steamy, hot, well-written and well-paced I am rapidly falling head over heels with this author and am excited for book two, Tempting the Heiress. Enjoy!

Definitely worth reading

All I kept thinking while reading this book was just do it already. That was the most long drawn out sexcapade ever.

And that ending ... why do you leave me hanging like that? Goodness, I can't wait to see how Jax gets out of this mess.

I love little Mayzie. She is the star of the show. I can't wait to see what other escapades they have. With her. And Bex is a hoot. God bless the crazy woman. Neela needs her to keep her balanced.

Definitely worth reading but if you're not a fan of cliffhangers wait and binge read after the next book comes out.

Funny and intriguing

Nana Malone is brilliant. I have never read a book of hers that I didn’t like. Protecting the Heiress, book one in the Heiress Duet was sexy, suspenseful, and intriguing. Holy Batman, what’s not to love about Jax? He’s hot, can cook, and can change a diaper. He is almost perfection except for those secrets that he’s keeping from Neela. The plot was great through in an adorable baby and you have a winner. I can’t wait for book two.
