Book Review: The Wild Heir


The Wild Heir by Karina Halle– 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?

Series: #2 in Royal Romance Series

My Rating: 5 Stars

My Thoughts: I’m a sucker for a marriage of convenience story. I can’t help myself. But it’s hard to find ones that aren’t cheesy or over the top. Karina Halle did not disappoint me. The two main characters being from modern day royalty created a fabulous back story from the first page. A Crown Prince with a dirty mouth and a Princess with some serious sass made for a highly entertaining and fun story. The secondary characters perfectly enhanced the story without detracting from it. The romance was definitely a slow burn with a lot of build up but anything else would not have worked with the story. I loved that Ella didn’t immediately swoon over Magnus. She made him work for it and was not intimidated by his position at all. Once of my favorite characters was Ella’s lady in waiting, Jane. She was hysterical and added the perfect amount of humor and inappropriate comments to the story. I will definitely be reading the rest of this series!
