A Nordic King by Karina Halle
Publication Date: September 21, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
SYNOPSIS: When 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.
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. We saw glimmers of King Aksel in The Swedish Prince and The Wild Heir. We all wanted to know what his story was and Karina delivered in A Nordic King. Aksel always seem like a bit of an arsehole. You know there is more there and boy, is there. Aksel’s past haunts him every day. There isn’t a break from it and it is slowly destroying him. He tries to be a king, father, brother and man but he is struggling in all of his roles.
Aurora James is hired to be the nanny to Aksel’s two daughters and their first meeting doesn’t go well. He is terrible to her and the stage is set for an epic standoff/throw down between these two. Aurora is exactly what Aksel, his family, the castle and his country needs. She makes them live again and to find the good in each and every day.
What makes Karina Halle’s books the best, are not only her beautifully written romantic stories but her characters. You can’t help but fall in love with Aksel and Aurora but the true golden nuggets of this story are his daughters, his aunt, the villain, and most importantly Snarf Snarf. The only thing missing from this book where our faves princes from the other two books!
