One error in judgment. That is all it took. 

They say don't mix business with pleasure, but I fell in love with the client and now I've lost her.

But I would do it all over again if it meant keeping her safe.

Now I'll have to fight like hell to earn her trust again. If I don't, it could cost both of us everything.

We jump right back in to where we finish in the last book and I have to say it is all action and sexual frustration as Jax tries to make things right while Neela tries to come to term with the lies and pressure to crack the code. The twists and surprises don't stop coming and there are some nail biting moments. It's great that Seb and the others are still around and we see their underlying story continue and have to say I like the new team Ariel is putting together. Now gimme the next book I want it now!!!!

This is the second part to Jax and Neela's story. This story has interesting plots and twists and Neela and Jax are working towards a future and trying to navigate the issues that are coming their way. I enjoyed reading about their interactions and wonderful chemistry. Neela took it to the max to protect her loved one, great read.

This is was a great conclusion to a really great duet. I absolutely loved the mystery involved in this one, and the plot twists were unbelievable. The twists and turns never stopped, not even on the very last page of this one. Nana Malone kept me on the edge of my seat during this entire duet. The story was paced perfectly. I loved the way the events unfolded in this one. Neela and Jax were definitely on one serious roller coaster of a ride. I absolutely loved how the next story line, which I believe will feature Ariel, was interwoven into Jax and Neela's story. And can I just say that I would love for Sebastian and Penny to be my King and Queen. I am so in love with these Royals. I hope Nana Malone never stops writing about them, because I truly enjoy the saga of the Winston Isles, and all of the wonderful characters that inhabit this world. Jax and Neela's story picked up right where Protecting the Heiress ended. These were absolutely perfect for each other, but I seriously needed them to communicate more with each other. The lack of communication continued to cause them issues that could have been solved by just speaking to each other. And yes, it was understandable that Neela was upset about Jax not telling her the truth from the beginning, but seriously, Neela was not taking the security concern seriously in the beginning, so would she really have agreed to have Ariel's team guard her and Mayzie had they been truthful with her. I, honestly, have to say, that Neela's anger towards to Jax, and her and her team's decision to treat Jax and Ariel's team as though they were apart of the bad guy clique was a bit annoying, since everything Jax was doing showed how much he cared for her and Mayzie. So, I really wished that Neela had let that go sooner than she did. She held on to the Jax doesn't really care for her troupe just a bit too long for me, when he was doing everything in his power to prove that he did. I felt bad for him. Like I said, this was a fantastic conclusion to this mystery shroud plot with so many plot twists that you didn't think the mystery would ever be solved or that things would workout. Well done, Nana Malone! Well done. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, and now I am anxiously waiting Ariel's story.

Tempting the Heiress by Nana Malone is the second book in the brand new Heiress Duet. Picking up where Protecting the Heiress left off we are smack dab in the middle of all kinds of drama. Neela knows the truth about Jax and the rest of her "nannies", the threat against her and/or the baby is still real and looming, and now she has to leave the one place she felt safe and leave her business to be run by her two best friends/employees. She knew raising a child wouldn't be easy but she didn't expect all of Willa's drama coming after her too. Jax will do whatever it takes to keep Neela and the baby safe. Even if that means dealing with a narcissistic pathological liar that Neela still sees with rose-colored glasses. As the danger mounts, however, the severity of their situation and the reality of people's actions set in. But did she realize the truth in time to keep her family safe? Steamy, hot, well-written and well-paced I have fallen head over heels for this author's work and am excited for the next book about the Royal Elite in Ariel's story, Return of the Prince. Enjoy!

This book is the continuation and conclusion of the Heiress duet. Neela has made Jax as a bodyguard and doesn’t quite know how she feels about it. This book takes readers on a twist and turn ride that we have come to love from this author. This book gives readers everything they need and so much more. Mayzie, Willa and a few other bad guys all jump in the mix. You are constantly on edge wondering will they or won’t they. I loved both Jax and Neela. I loved seeing both of them evolve and grow. Nana Malone has a knack for creating characters that readers can care about and want to be happy. This duet is a must read. Malone does it again. I can’t wait to see what’s up next. Oh, if you have loved the Winston Isles books, you will be more than pleased that all of our beloved characters show up in this one. I love to get updates on past characters. Sebastian is working on a plan to keep his family safe. Ariel and Royal Elite are a big part of that plan. I can’t wait to hear more about the new team members and see how their characters evolve. I’m hooked on Team Winston Isles and I don’t want it ever to end.

Tempting the Heiress is the conclusion of Neela and Jax’s story. It starts off pretty much where book 1 leaves off with the realization that Jax is not who he says he is. The book twists and turns with Jax sound everything in his power to keep Neela and Mayzie safe. As Jax and Neela are on the run a huge bombshell is revealed that I was not expecting. As Neela battles with her inner turmoil, her and Jax become closer. The deception on the part of the newcomer is revealed and you really ache for Mayzie and Neela. You are at the point where you see the happier ever after coming and then another obstacle is thrown up..Jax and Neela eventually resolve their issues and all ends well. I am absolutely bouncing with excitement on the teaser at the end..I cannot wait to get my hand on Ariel’s story...FINALLY!

Surprise, surprise, surprise. This book is full of surprises. Some good, some not so good. Some not so surprising. Jax and Neela surprised me in some respects. They are so different and yet they work. But when the danger is gone will they still work? Only time will tell. And the lead in at the end of the book for the next series has me drooling. The Prince Duet is going to be HOT, HAUTE, HAWT!!!!!!

This is the perfect ending for Jax and Neela's story. This story is full of suspense, love, passion, intrigue, action, passion, incredible surprises, and unexpected events that will keep you at the edge of your seat. You will simply stay glued to this story until the very end and it will leave you wanting more of this amazing characters right away. Jax has cross all the lines and broken all the rules, he has fallen for his client and is madly in love with her mom. Been a bodyguard that is the worst thing that could happen, but he will do anything to protect the girls in his life even with his own life. Neela will prove that she is stronger and more resourceful that what she seems and will fight for what is hers. Both will work toward their ultimate desire/goal, but once they reach it will that be truly what they want or will they discover along the way what they really need. Nana has done it again. Can't wait to see what is next with the gang of the Winston Isles and the King Knights.

I really enjoyed this conclusion to the Heiress duet. Plus it sets up the next story in the series really well. The story picks up right where the last left off. Jax has his work cut out for him trying to win back Neela's trust. And work he does! The story was full of twists and turns and full of action. It was quick paced and wild ride. The new members of the team are introduced and give us a glimpse at future stories. I'm very excited to read the next one! I received an advance copy for an honest review.

5 Stars Review by Sasha Kobylinski Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog What can you expect from Nana Malone’s Tempting the Heiress, the sequel in the Heiress Duet? Swoon-worthy romance at the heart of the novel? Check! Witty banter that will have you struggling to keep laughs in? Check! A fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled plot that will literally have you tearing through the pages? Check! Neela is now aware of Jax’s real job and the life that he leads. The danger to all of them is now more prevalent in their lives. Put on the run due to an invisible threat connected to a mysterious, cryptically coded ledger that has put the targets on their backs. Still trying to navigate this strange royal world, Neela attempts to keep Mayzie as safe as she can while still protecting her heart from Jax. With the secrets out in the open, Neela still can’t get past the fact that Jax lied to her but she also can’t deny that he’s taken root in her heart. Jax isn’t sure how he can protect both Neela and Mayzie but knows that he has no other choice but to try. He’s found the people he loves. It is something he never dreamed would be possible for him and now, he won’t let anything or anyone keep them apart. What this series and this author does extremely well is that the characters are simply kick ass. There is no other word to describe them. Especially the women. They are such strong characters who have this fierce drive and power to follow their dreams. None of them are going to be pushed around and sent into submission because of a little danger. Instead, they choose to face everything head on. You see this in Neela with how fiercely she protects her new family. Jax is also a man of mystery that we need more of in this world. He brings hope that there could still be good guys out there that aren’t afraid of strong women and want them to succeed just as much as they do. The drama and excitement that came with the previous novel follows where the previous novel left of. Because of this fact, you do need to have read the first novel in the series in order to understand all aspects of the plot and characters. Jax and Neela are hotter than ever before, if that is even possible. With all the secrets out in the open, the pair is trying to figure out their new normal. The danger adds to the craziness that seems to follow their lives. The intricacy of the plot and the amazing writing brings the novel to the next level.

Jax: Yeah yeah yeah--don't fall for the client. Who are any of the protectors, bodyguards, etc. I know to talk. Half of them are married to their "protectee". Things were going okay, I mean great in the bedroom, the baby is irresistible. Then--she found out I'm more than a manny. Truth is on top of her list of must-haves. I knew not telling her was going to backfire. Didn't know it would hurt so much. Neela: I should have known--inside I did. What big gorgeous guy like him is going to be the babysitter? I knew getting involved with an employee was wrong anyway. He should have told me. He's just like all the rest of the males in the world. I don't care he was told not to say anything. Once he crawled in my bed all bets were off but honesty. So-Now Jax has to figure out who is after Neela and or Mazie and get her to understand why he wasn't up front with her. He had to get both of them back in his life. Keeping them safe was first, but a close second was getting her back--if he even had her to begin with. His original reason for taking on the job, was that still important? With the rift between them could he even save her or would her enemies -- not going to happen. He'd find a way. I love this duet--just like the others. Love, danger, gorgeous guys, steam. strong women and this time add a little cutie pie and what more could you want? My strongest recommendation.

Tempting the Heiress is book 2 in the Heiress Duet, and you absolutely need to read book 1 before diving into this electrifying and exciting must-read! Wow….that’s really all I can say after reading this book. WOW! There’s drama, mystery, danger, and shocking twists and turns that have you sitting on the edge of your seat with anticipation! The character dynamic between Jax and Neela was brilliantly written, as well as the tension and conflicting emotions that accompanies the enticing plot line. The alternating POVs that has become customary in these duets, was the ultimate cherry on top of this eloquently wistful romance. I can’t say much more about this book, as I would give away entirely way too much if I did. Just read it. Tempting the Heiress is a powerful and exciting romantic thriller that will leave you desperate for more from this fabulous author! I can’t wait for the next duet, as each book just gets better and better! Gah, I just love ‘em! 5 Stars!

Tempting the Heiress is the conclusion to the duet. This book is a romance/mystery/suspenseful/ Ultra Sexy book with lots of twist and turns and plenty of action to keep your heart pumping. Its about finding love and opening your heart. The story takes you on a journey throughout the isles with each chapter more exciting than the last one to keep you turning the page. Sone of my favorite parts are just watching Jax fall in love with Neela and the baby. His protectiveness being the true alpha that he is. I also love seeing a stronger Neela emerge. To standup for her new family and let go of the past. With all that was going on in this book I wasn't able to put it down. The characters new and old kept it very interesting. I love King Sebastian and Queen Penny. They make the stories so much fun and lets not forget Lady Ariel. Who is about to go on a new journey of her own. Bring on Prince Tristan. I'm waiting for you. Hope to fall in love with him as I did Jax. Love this new family.

What a thrilling conclusion to the Heiress Duet series. Tempting the Heiress picks up where Protecting the Heiress left off. Neely is heartbroken and feeling betrayed when she found out Jax was more than her manny. Jax is determined to convince her that he never meant to lie to her, his feelings are real, and that he wants her and Mayzie to be his. The chemistry between Neely and Jax is still hotter than ever and they soon find their way back to each other. But there is still a very real threat against them and it is a race against time for Neely to decode the ledger so Mayzie is safe and she can have her life back. The twists and turns that this story takes is thrilling and breathtaking. I loved that all the family and friends we've grown to love from the past stories are all involved and essential in this book along with new intriguing members of the Royal Elite that I need to now more about. There was still the wonderful humor that Ms Malone does so well, along with intrigue and emotion that kept me totally engaged. She also continues to weave in an intriguing story line with Ariel, and I can't wait for her story next!

The man who thought he had nothing to lose, discovers what it means to have a family. Jax is all about the risk, but he's gained a love he refuses to lose. Tempting the Heiress thrills, chills and reveals. Ariel and Jax are on the cusp of gaining forever or losing it all. Malone continues to roar her way into emotions with her larger than life characters. Even at their most flawed, the pull is hard to resist.
