About The Book:

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.


We weren't a foot inside when he closed the door behind him and said, "Turn around, damsel," indicating I should face away from him. I complied, and he slowly came up behind me, running his hands along my bare upper back and down my arms. He unzipped the dress and pulled it off my shoulders so it pooled at my feet. I was naked except for my insanely high heels. Grabbing my hips, he pulled my naked ass into his front, and I could feel his hardness pushing against the seam of his trousers. "Can you feel how much I want you? How much I want this?" he said firmly, increasing his grip on my hips, pulling me even closer.

I tilted my head back and to the side to try to steal a glimpse of him, and he rested his chin on my shoulder. His hands wrapped around and palmed my breasts. He pushed them in and up, molding them in his palms, and he began to tug at my nipples, rolling them between his thumb and finger, teasing them to the point where pain met pleasure.

"I'm breaking all sorts of rules for you, aren't I?" He was kissing my neck, sucking my skin, nipping it gently between his teeth, devouring me in motions that mimicked what he was doing to my breasts.

"What rules have you broken for me?" I asked, practically whispering, searching for steadiness in my breath.

He spun me around and lifted me by my ass in one swift move. I locked my ankles behind his back. "For starters I rarely sleep with the same woman twice, at least not in the same week. I don't spend the night. Ever. And neither do the women I see. And I don't invite women into my office. Ever. But I couldn't resist with you. I'd been dreaming about having my mouth on that pretty pussy on that table for weeks. Picturing you just as you were."

"Did it live up to the dream?" I nuzzled into his cheek, desperate to get to a place where he was naked, where I could feel his skin on my skin.

"The dream didn't stand a chance."

"Well, I wouldn't want you breaking any of your rules, would I? I mean, maybe we better stop now, and you could sleep on my sofa. Or you can get back on your horse—"

"Not on your life, smartass." 

My Review:

Royal Affair (Royal Scandal, #1)Royal Affair by Parker Swift
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Royal Affair by Parker Swift is the first book in her Royal Scandal series. Told solely from Lydia's POV, this book is a sensual romantic story that is continued throughout the three book series. As the story of Lydia and Dylan continues throughout the series there is a small cliffhanger that will bridge into the next book but this installment is wrapped up quite well.

Lydia is a girl who has dealt with loss, and now has a plan for her life. Leave New York and go to London to work with an up-and-coming fashion designer. A chance encounter during her summer job leaves her aching for Dylan and paves the way for them to meet again once she arrives in London.

Dylan is a private man. Oh sure, he may be the son of a Duke and sought after by the press, but private he remains. When he meets Lydia, she starts to break down the walls he has carefully and purposefully erected around his life and, to their possible detriment, he may never be able to keep her out completely.

What happens when the upper crust meets the American in their midst? Well - it was an extremely well-written story. The pacing was great. I loved the characters, I felt their pain. There was plenty of angst without it being overdone and the sex was H O T! Enjoy!
