I never wanted the throne...

I have a plan: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don't have to rule.
The last thing I have time for is my sexy new neighbor. She's everything I don't want, sassy, funny and...not available.

That's okay—I'm amazing best-guy-friend material.. Friends? Sure. Anything more? Definitely not. 
All I have to do is not touch her, kiss her or fantasize about...never mind...

It's not like I have a choice. I can't let her find out who I really am. And she's got secrets of her own.

About the Author

USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

In my humble opinion, when an author chooses to cheat their readers by concocting a cliffhanger, thereby forcing the reader to purchase a second book, tells me the author 1) has little to no respect for the readers, 2) has no faith in their own ability to keep readers interested in their story. I liked the story, the characters, the plot.

Ends on a cliffhanger
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Quick setting... Off on a quest to find a brother he just found out about crown Prince Sebastian has evaded every royal protector seeking to secure his safety. Once the King wises up and sends two female Royal Guards to go undercover , it is brains over muscle and creative problem solving by the two well trained young warrior women for the win. This was a rollercoaster ride of emotion and had me laughing and smoldering between the comedy and oh so steamy scenes. I loved all the characters especially seeing Sebastian and Len/Penny pursue their artistic interests. While there is a cliffhanger here, it is novel length and does complete this phase of their adventure which continues to an HEA in Cheeky King.

Dang, Nana Malone knows how to leave a reader hanging. This book has so much love and lies and secrets and mystery. I can't even begin to tell you all about it. You just have to read this. Just know that this is a cliffhanger and you will be gaping like a fish out of water at the end and wanting the next book NOW.

Cheeky Royal by Nana Malone is a fun contemporary romance. Ms. Malone has provided readers with a well-written book furnished with outstanding characters. This book is written in first person, alternating point of view most unfavorite, but it works in this story. Sebastian is Prince of the Winston Isles but has gone on a search hoping to find his illegitimate brother to go home with him and take his place so he can work on his photography. Penny is a little bit of a clutz but is still part of the Royal Guard for the royal family. When Penny finds her boyfriend kissing her brother she accepts the King's mission to find the Prince and bring him home. Penny and Sebastian's story is loaded with drama, laugh out loud humor, smokin' hot sex, action and suspense. I loved this story right up to the cliff-hanger ending. That I didn't love. I hate cliff-hangers. I will still read Nana Malone books, but I'll be more careful and try to pick ones that aren't cliff-hangers. I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This book was incredibly fun, impossibly steamy and totally adorable! I loved Sebastian & Penny! Their chemistry was off the charts! Drama, intrigue, secrets & twists are all blended into this very engaging read. This royal romantic escapade is one delightful romp that should not be missed. Can't wait for the next book for more of Sebastian & Penny's tale.

Cheeky Royal by Nana Malone is the first book in her Royals Undercover duet. As I am eagerly awaiting the release of Return of the Prince, I thought I would go back to the beginning (from what I can tell) of these ROYAL stories and read Sebastian And Lucas' tales. I was not disappointed at all! Sebastian and Penny's story is off to a fabulous start. Hot and steamy, filled with subterfuge and a little bit of angst, even knowing the events from reading books further into this world I was enthralled with every page. Enjoy!

Loved It This was a beautifully written story about a man finding that his father was not everything he thought he was. He made mistakes. Sebastian found out he has 2 half siblings and is looking for them. Penny was a a childhood friend he hadn't seen in a long time. But she is part of the Royal Guard, the family business. He needs to come home she is undercover as security, he doesn't know.

Cheeky Royal is part one in a two-part duet book. Nana Malone is a new-to-me author. Cheeky Royal is a fun, entertaining, and cheesy read that you can relax to. I had to invest my time on Cheeky Royal. Honestly, after chapter one, I was done with it. However, I decided to stick it out and I am happy I DID. Once the relationship was establish by our main protagonists, Penny and Sebastian, things began to move forward. The plot was predictable; there were no real surprises to the story line. I would have loved to see more of character development. However, as I stated if you are looking for an easy, fun, and mindless read that you can relax would be this book.

I'm going to start at the end. I was screaming Noooooo... reading the last paragraph. That right there, tells you this was a good book! Cheeky Royal introduces us to Penelope (Penny/Len) and Prince Sebastian. Both with major family obligations trying to figure out who they are. Penny is a lovable but clumsy Royal Guard who used to play with the Prince when he was younger. Sebastian is the cocky, playboy Prince who has learned some family secrets that send him into a spiral of sort. Although she seems familiar to him, Sebastian doesn't remember Penny, which helps in her quest from the King to bring his wayward son home. Nana Malone is becoming an automatic 1-click for me, because she has such a good balance of sexy, humor, and a side of mystery/suspense in her books. I could go on and on about some of the laugh out loud scenes, a few of the *gasp* moments, and of course... THAT ENDING, but I wouldn't want to spoil it. Let's just say, I love this book, these characters, and CANNOT WAIT for Cheeky King! ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Uggghhh....I need book 2 stat!! Aside from the prequel, this author is new to me. I don't know what it is about "Royal" books, but I freaking love them! I thought this author did a great job and I pretty much fell in love with Sebastian and Penny right away. There were parts of the book that had me literally cracking up at Calamity Jane. For the most part, I had a perma-grin on my face, and then those sexy moments, were HOTT!! The chemistry between the two is undeniable, but I sat through the whole book on edge, waiting for the other shoe to drop. Waiting for the lies and the secrets to spill out. We get to the end of the book and I was definitely not expecting that ending. I think I read the last few sentences over and over like, say what?!! Oh no you didn't just leave me hanging like that!! So now I sit here, half devastated because I need to know what happens!!!! Like yesterday!! I'm sorta waiting for my heart to get stomped on...I have a feeling things won't be pretty for the first half of the book. Please don't make me cry!! LOL! Anywho, can't wait for the second half to come out!! Great start to this series! Glad I found another author to love as well! #B2BKristina

Sexy Royals. Sweet & Fun. Nana Malone has done it again. She has brought out 2 characters that you fall in love with and let them win over your heart! *Note: This is part 1 of the series, so you will be SCREAMING for more at the end! I went through so many emotions... Anger... Laughs... Protectiveness... Confusion... Sadness... And that was just within the first 2 chapters! Penny is not the ideal protector! Being part of the Royal Guard, everyone expected her to act a certain way... Be a certain way! But she truly was her own person and that led her to the task of guarding the "Runaway Prince!" Sebastian had plans for his life and didn't want to do what everyone expected of him. But the person he had become was not what those in his world would expect of him. These two build on the little that they know and make it a great read. You enjoy the chemistry and the connection between the characters. And did I mention that the men of Blake Security make an appearance! If you haven't read the Shameless series, you definitely are missing out (but it is not necessary to read them before Royals Undercover Series) This is another winner in my book & I cannot wait until the conclusion!

Cheeky Royal Royals Undercover Book 1 by Nana Malone ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is a SPECTACULAR entertaining fun filled book! The story is so exciting plus it's such a page turner that you can't help but to keep reading until you finish the book. I absolutely truly enjoyed these characters, they are exciting, captivating, engaging and written very well. Nana Malone ’s book Cheeky Royal is one of my favorite book to read. It's a fabulous story of a Royal society, even the secondary characters in this book is enjoyable. The story is told from Penny and Sebastian point of view. Nana Malone is truly a expert when it comes to writing smart and sexy romances plus her writing will make you laugh out loud as you read her stories. I greatly appreciate having a up front admission because it's a good place to be. Of course I'm a died hard fan of Nana Malone’s writing, regardless of what she is writes. I must confess since I started reading Nana Malone books I tend to read them 4-5 times, because anytime I need a pick me up I'm likely to read her book again and it's better than the 5 hour stimulus drink. Okay, so now you know my dirty secret – I am more than a huge fan of Nana Malone. Why? What is so special about the way she writes? I think her books are unique, intriguing interesting and entertaining in this romance genre. I enjoy the fact that her focus is not just on getting to that perfect happily ever after ending, Instead it's more about seeing how the characters interact together and how they react to certain situations that keep me on the edge of my seat. Her stories are about the characters. So there's no sign of happily ever after without romance Well, kinda of any way, plus her steamy sexy times is mind blowing that's why I enjoy Nana Malone books, plus this book has a awesome surprise YAY! There is competition between Sebastian and Robert for Penny affections. Sebastian is giving her a lot of first. Again I enjoyed reading Cheeky Royal Royals Undercover Book 1 by Nana Malone, she is such a talented writer, Plus her world building skills is well detailed and captivating. The pacing and word Flow is well done. I can’t wait to read the Cheeky King. Thanks so much Nana Malone, I am now excited and interested in reading Cheeky Prince. Despite the comedy mood of the novel, I absolutely can't stop reading this book. Penny is so caring, loving, loyal, and generous. I loved how she felt the need to help the Prince. Sebastian is one of my favorites. He is a rebel prince , but Sebastian is tired of the Royal life he doesn't want to be king and he would rather be a artist and for his brother to be king . He is clearly in love with Penny and he wants to tell her that he is the Prince. What is interesting is that the characters are not all what they appear to be, so the plot twists are quite fun. This series is charming, with lots of sweetness, sexiness, drama, great characters that's well development and a near happy ending anyway! I would rate this book as follows Hero and Heroine Rating 10, Sexual Tension Rating off the chart Sex and Intimacy Scenes Frequency Rating 10 Plot and Character Development Rating 10 Dialogue and Ending Rating off the chart

Let me start off by saying I'm in love with this new series Royal Undercover. This is the story of Prince Sebastian and Penny. As children they played together even though she was not a Royal. After the incident where his cousin locked Penny up and scared her as a child. Sebastian vowed to protect her from his cousin. Now it has been years and they haven't seen each in a long time. The Prince is angry with the King and has disappeared after finding out a family secret. Penny is a Royal Guard now and the King has asked her to protect the Prince because he fears for his life. Sebastian should be called the sneaky Prince because he has been missing for six months. But he turns up in New York where he enlist the help of Blake Security. Love how Nana Malone incorporated my favorite guys in the story. Sebastian is looking for his brother he never knew he had and also a long lost sister. After meeting up with Noah, he notifies the King of the Prince's whereabouts and the King sends Penny and her best friend Ariel in undercover to bring the Prince home. Even though Penny doesn't feel that she is a good Royal Guard, she is smart and very determined. Her instincts are awesome. She will do whatever it takes the protect Sebastian even if it means getting very close to him and her attraction for him. Once Sebastian meets Penny again, he feels a connection, she feels like home. The more he's with her the stronger the pull. I love watching them fall in love and when they could no longer deny what they felt it was just wow. (Boom). There is some surprises in store and a very emotional ending that left me wanting more. Cliffhanger, I wish the next book was out now. Love this new series looking forward to seeing what Nana Malone comes up with next. This series needs to extend to the cousins too.
