One seriously sexy son-of-a-duke . . .

Behind the posh British accent, Dylan Hale possesses a down-and-dirty sexiness. Off-the-charts gorgeous, a ruthless architect . . . and did I mention he's a future duke? Every time we touch, it's wildfire. All need and lust and heat. But Dylan has rules: just sex, no one can know, and in the bedroom he gets complete control. All I have to do is follow the rules, because falling in love with Dylan Hale is all it would take to screw everything up . . . royally.

NA ReviewMy Thoughts

Royal Affair is the first book in the new adult contemporary romance, Royal Scandal series by author Parker Swift. I really enjoyed Royal Affair. It is the perfect valentines day read, or really a read for any day of the year. It has lots of romance, sexy times, witty banter and great characters. I can’t wait for the next book in the Royal Scandal series, because this one sure did brighten my day.

At first, I has no idea what to make of Lydia and Dylan. I loved both of them, but they also each annoyed me in different ways. Lydia is a pretty independent person, and I really admired that about her. It takes guts to pack up and move to another country for an internship, especially one in the highly critical fashion world. But at the same time, she was the type of independent that views accepting help or nice things from other people as a weakness. Which I don’t agree with, and it got to the point of annoying when she was constantly shutting down Dylan’s courteous gestures. But Dylan on the other hand was more than a little overbearing. Each one of them took their personalities to the extreme. But oddly enough, they worked well together. I enjoyed reading about the two them…a lot.

While I have never read Fifty Shades of Grey, I have seen some people comparing the two books, and I can totally see that. Dylan is a dominating force in the story. If that is your kind of thing, you will absolutely love this book. It was just a bit too much in terms of their heightened personalities that prevented me from giving this book 5 stars and falling madly in love with it. But don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed this story and I will definitely be continuing on in the series. Fans of dominant guys will really love Dylan. He is certainly swoonworthy and the romance did have it’s sweet moments, which I loved. I also really liked the whole “royal” aspect to the story. It added another layer both to the plot and to the complexity of Dylan’s character.

Bottom line: Royal Affair is a really great start to what looks to be a great romance series. if you are a fan of books featuring a hot romance, hot royals, and a dominant alpha male, the Royal Scandal series will be one you love. I can’t wait for the next book.
