Since when did being a royal knight in shining armor come with diaper duty?

- The Royal Mistake of a Lifetime: walking away from the royal guard.  - The way back: Keep the unsuspecting, mulishly stubborn, astoundingly sexy, code-cracker, Neela Wellbrook and       her new inheritance (her best friend’s baby) safe from kidnappers.  - The Catch:  Little miss codebreaker doesn’t think she needs a bodyguard.  So I’ll have to go undercover as a…     manny.
I do my job, and I get the chance to go back to guarding the royal family. I’m not at all worried that Neela is my new housemate. Or that I want her more than I’ve ever wanted anyone. Or, that I’m getting stupidly attached to the baby. 

Attachments get people killed. All I have to do is keep it professional.

  • Definitely worth reading

    By charlligirl
    All I kept thinking while reading this book was just do it already. That was the most long drawn out sexcapade ever. And that ending ... why do you leave me hanging like that? Goodness, I can't wait to see how Jax gets out of this mess. I love little Mayzie. She is the star of the show. I can't wait to see what other escapades they have. With her. And Bex is a hoot. God bless the crazy woman. Neela needs her to keep her balanced. Definitely worth reading but if you're not a fan of cliffhangers wait and binge read after the next book comes out.
  • Funny and intriguing

    By Fine pumpkin 511
    Nana Malone is brilliant. I have never read a book of hers that I didn’t like. Protecting the Heiress, book one in the Heiress Duet was sexy, suspenseful, and intriguing. Holy Batman, what’s not to love about Jax? He’s hot, can cook, and can change a diaper. He is almost perfection except for those secrets that he’s keeping from Neela. The plot was great through in an adorable baby and you have a winner. I can’t wait for book two.
  • Royal Elite Gets The Job Done

    By Izzibear
    Need protecting and someone who’ll cook, clean and take care of the baby, call Royal Elite. Haha. When Jax Reynolds gave into Ariel’s pestering and joined her new agency the last thing he expected was to become a manny. Neela Westbrook got the shock of her life when she was suddenly given custody her friends daughter, Maysie. When Neela steps into her new role as guardian she quickly finds out that she’s in over her head and could use a little help. In walks Jax, manny and answer to all her needs. Compassionate, strong, spirited and all round kick-butt Jax and Neela are. They’re a great addition to an already amazing cast of characters. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the second half of their story.
  • Passionate and suspenseful must-read!

    By Kelly_BTC Blog
    When the announcement was made pertaining to these upcoming duets, I just knew I had to read them! I didn’t even know what they were about, I had to have them regardless! And you’d think by now, knowing the author’s love at keeping her readers in suspense, I’d be used to her cliffhangers. But I’m not. And I don’t think I ever will be. They just keep getting worse, and worse…which makes me LOVE them even more, and more! To piggy-back off what I said before, I went into this duet completely blind. I knew the story was going to be about a new, fresh set of characters, with dashes of cameo appearances from the previously beloved ones, while still keeping the story line unique and entirely separate from the other duets. I was instantly transported back to the Winston Isles, my new favorite place to be, and was introduced to Jax and Neela. Another threat looms in the air, which brings more secrets, lies, and hidden agendas. Not wanting to give too much away, Jax is “hired” by Neela to take care of baby Mayzie. How Neela comes upon this baby, I’ll let you find that out on your own. Just know that with a new baby comes the threats as to how Neela became the child’s new guardian. Something wicked, disturbing and tragic is brewing, and it’s up to Jax, with the help of our favorite former royal guard, Ariel, to find out where this risk is coming from, who is orchestrating it, and the ever mysterious why it’s happening. Immediately upon Jax and Neela meeting, you can feel the instant attraction between them. And as their time together passes, that attraction flares into uncontrollable chemistry that sparks and soars off the pages. The sexual tension, and entirely swoony emotional facets to their connection sets their character dynamic apart from the other couples we’ve read before. Lust may have clouded their vision initially, but it’s their compassionate bond and selfless actions toward not only baby Mayzie but each other that showcases the passionate and intense desire for one another. But when one secret comes to light, truth and trust is the only thing that can possible save them….or break them apart. I’ve probably said this a million times, but I seriously cannot wait to find out what happens next! The author’s cliffhangers are epic, and leaves you on the edge of your seat, desperate for resolution and answers between Jax and Neela. I’m dying for more…a thoroughly addicting series! 5 Stars!
  • Royal Mystery Unsolved

    By JustNicole19
    I was not prepared for Jax Reynolds at all. You cannot be good with children and hot….my hormones will not stand for this! LOL! I love the intertwining stories in Protecting the Heiress and I cannot wait to see how the mystery unfolds. I can’t wait for part 2 of the duet.
