"Addictive, sexy and beautifully written. I can't get enough. 5 erotic stars" -Vi Keeland, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author on Royal Disaster
All this duke needs is his duchess...
For five blissful months I've been engaged to Dylan Hale, the most handsome, commanding, and wickedly sexy duke in England. For five months I've woken up next to the man I love, indulged in secret trysts, and submitted to every delicious desire. Even better? We've managed to keep it hidden from everyone. That means no paparazzi scandals, no snide comments from Dylan's mother, and no harsh public scrutiny. It's been heaven, but with Dylan's royal responsibilities looming, our time alone is running out. And while I can't wait to be Dylan's wife, I'm terrified that becoming Dylan's duchess might mean losing myself.

I mean after all Dylan and Lydia have been through a lot in this series and deserve a feel good ending. Though all is not smooth sailing for them through the whole book, but I was very satisfied with the drama and emotion that were stumbling blocks for them in this book. It is a emotional book while most of the book mad me happy there were some good crying scenes for me. I loved the intimate scenes with Dylan and Lydia, they are still hot even after three books. I have to say I still kept waiting for Lydia's long-lost mother to show up...lol I loved this series! I would definitely read them in order, just because it is more enjoyable that way. I am curious as to what this Author will be putting out next and will be looking for it. 4Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader coy of this book provided by the publisher.*
Royal Treatment, Parker Swift Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Romance, I loved the first two parts of this trilogy, a story with a domineering - but not in a bullying OTT way - British Duke and an American girl. She's focused on her career, bright, intelligent and it's so refreshing to read a heroine that's not afraid to stand up for herself. Not that she needs to with Dylan, as he's very proud of her work ethic, very supportive of her ambitions. They've both got demons in their backgrounds though and this book lets the effects of them on them both run free. I enjoyed the story, but felt after the dramas in the last two novels this was a little low key. It does a very good wrapping up of past events, finishing off odd little loose ends. I hate when a book finishes and I'm thinking - but hey, what about ....? I wasn't convinced by the MI6 story-line, I just cant be persuaded that a top intelligence agency would let a civilian get involved to that degree. Then for all that's it brought up through the book when it does happen it kind of is underwhelming...but that's my only minor gripe about this book. I love seeing things from alternating POV, lets me really get an insight into how the characters are feeling, what they really think. I loved Dylan's sister, and That was a surprise at the end ;-) Next book maybe? His mum, I liked her opposition to Lydia, it felt very real, and given how some of these Lineages continue for hundreds of years back that importance parents stress of having the "right" person to marry is genuine, and I'm sure still goes in in many circles. That said I didn't like that way things ended up between her and Lydia, just didn't feel to me as if that would have happened. This book takes the couple out of England to the US for part of the time and that worked really well, let Dylan see Lydia in her home setting. I loved meeting her dad's old freinds, they felt like Lydia's family. A huge, massive thank you too, for Parker for releasing these books close enough together that the story remains fresh in the readers mind. So often there's a year or more between parts and I've simply forgotten exactly what happened. we readers who love books consume huge amounts of them and when trilogies have a similar story-line - and many romance ones do - then its easy to muddle them, forget exactly which one(s) belong to which books. Having to keep checking back to earlier ones t see what happened takes away a lot of the magic. TBH my favourite way to read trilogies - and series - is to wait until all parts are released and have a total immersion, reading them back to back. That way I get the most from the story, feel the action and emotion as it happens. Stars: four, a terrific, fresh trilogy with some great characters and plots but that MI6 storyline brings it down a bit for me. ARC supplied for review purposes by Netgalley and Publishers
Lydia and Dylan have led readers on a merry chase. This romance has went from the start of something new, to crazy in love quicker, than anyone can say I do. Let's not forget the dangerously in love phase that went from hopelessly devoted secret lovers to brokenhearted ex lovers. More scandalous than any gossip rag, Ms. Swift knows how to leave readers wanting more. Royal Treatment is the ending I've been craving since I embarked on this Royal Affair. Fittingly entitled Royal Treatment, we finally get to the happily ever after. If the bride's cold feet don't make this a Royal Disaster. Parker Swift served up a bewitching tale of a courageous young woman in need of a fresh start and ended up finding the other half of her heart.
