A Nordic King by Karina Halle 



synopsis_thumb2_thumb_thumb

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.

5 out of 5 stars


I loved every single thing about this story! It had such an amazing build, keeping me turning the page, wanting my HEA… it was amazing! I am so in love with Aksel in Aurora, I never wanted it to end!


I thought Aksel and Aurora were amazing characters. I loved their animosity and chemistry and the building heat it created. I loved learning about Aksel and the pain and guilt he was struggling with. I loved Aurora and what a strong woman she was. She could be challenging and I really liked how that played out between the two of them. Watching them fight and bicker and fall in love was amazing. I adored Aksel’s girls and how fun and sweet they were and how they were really a part of the story, making it feel that much richer. And Aksel interacting with his girls? Stick a fork in me! I was done, so freaking sweet!


I thought this story had an absolutely phenomenal build. I felt like I was on the edge of my seat the entire time as I learned about Aksel and Aurora’s history and pain. It was gripping and emotional, fun and sexy, and all-consuming. I loved seeing this gruff and guarded man open up and become vulnerable, it absolutely made me melt. Aurora, opening up and facing her issues was amazing as well. It was all captivating.


Every detail, every character, and every scene was just so well thought out and well written. I love a story that really makes me feel and this one definitely did. Of course, it was super fun as well, it was interlaced with so many entertaining moments making me smile. I loved it all! There was a nice amount of drama to thanks to Aksel and Aurora’s pasts and the push and pull between them.


This was an amazing must-read story about healing and second chances, falling in love and opening your heart and I absolutely loved it. It’s officially a favorite read of 2018!

The Swedish Prince[4]The Wild Heir

The Swedish Prince Amazon | My Review

The Wild Heir Amazon | My Review


Note: Technically these books are not listed together in a series but The Swedish Prince, The Wild Heir, and A Nordic King do have interconnecting character's in the same world. For me personally, I feel like that’s a series so I read them in the order they were written, which is the order listed above. They’re completely standalone stories and you can be read in any order, I’m just rather fanatical about reading “in order” so I wanted to share my thoughts in case you dear reader, felt the same way.



I love a story that really makes me feel all the things. Like somehow it’s touched my soul. What’s a story that’s really made you feel? Let me know!
