🎃A Nordic King by Karina Halle

41957608When I first applied for the job I thought it would be like all the others: working as a nanny for an aristocratic family.
Then I got the job and found out how wrong I was.

Now I’m the new nanny for two adorable little girls who happen to be princesses.

Their father is the widowed King of Denmark.
And my new home? The royal palace in Copenhagen.
Adjusting to my new life isn’t easy but the hardest part hasn’t been the girls who still grieve over the loss of their mother.

It’s their father.

Cold, mysterious and moody, with an icy stare that seems to penetrate your soul, King Aksel may have hired me to take care of his daughters but he wants as little to do with me as possible.

Yet the longer I share these palace walls with this man, the more that I’m drawn to him. His chiseled face and sexual swagger are only part of the package. It’s in the long, intense glances at the dinner table, the way we’ll brush up against each other in the halls, the rare glimpses of the man deep inside, like the sun passing through clouds.

But no matter how I feel about him, we can never be together.

You think it’s bad enough being in love with your boss?

Try falling in love with a king.

Conclusion:

So most people are scaring the crap out of themselves watching horror movies and reading horror novels and I’m over here reading about falling in love with a King, two adorable little kids and a pig named Snarf Snarf.

I have no regrets.

I’ve been in such the mood lately for romances. Even more than usual. A Nordic King is definitely what I was looking for. I remember the last novel I read by Karina fell a little flat, but this one was absolutely fantastic. Okay, so it was uber cheesy at some points, but it was perfect for the story told.

The thing I love about novels like this is they’re not overly dramatic and full of angst. Of course the characters still go through their trials but it’s more… realistic. It’s ‘let sit down and talk about this’ instead of ‘I’m going to ignore you for a month because you said this one thing that I’ve blown out of proportion.’ Ie: Every YA romance novel in existence ever.

I loved the forbidden romance aspect of this as well. It was a nice touch to spice up a cutesy romance. And Aksel’s daughters… Ugh, loved them. What a cute couple of kids, even though they were kind of spoiled. “Well, they ARE princesses.” is not an excuse to act like little terrors. But what do I know, I’m not around royal kids!

Anyways, definitely in the mood for more romances, so I’ll see what else she has published. Totally loving her writing. It’s kind of laid back like JLA’s.
