See My Review Below!!!
A Nordic King by Karina Halle
Publication Date: September 21, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
SYNOPSIS: When I first applied for the job I thought it would be like all the others: working as a nanny for an aristocratic family.
Then I got the job and found out how wrong I was.
Now I’m the new nanny for two adorable little girls who happen to be princesses.
Their father is the widowed King of Denmark.
And my new home? The royal palace in Copenhagen.
Adjusting to my new life isn’t easy but the hardest part hasn’t been the girls who still grieve over the loss of their mother.
It’s their father.
Cold, mysterious and moody, with an icy stare that seems to penetrate your soul, King Aksel may have hired me to take care of his daughters but he wants as little to do with me as possible.
Yet the longer I share these palace walls with this man, the more that I’m drawn to him. His chiseled face and sexual swagger are only part of the package. It’s in the long, intense glances at the dinner table, the way we’ll brush up against each other in the halls, the rare glimpses of the man deep inside, like the sun passing through clouds.
But no matter how I feel about him, we can never be together.
You think it’s bad enough being in love with your boss?
Try falling in love with a king.

Ms. Halle’s stories get me every time!! I am so enjoying this series about royalty.
The Nordic King is the story of King Aksel of Denmark and Aurora of a far away land in the outbacks of Australia.
I loved the imagery in this story. From the palaces in Copenhagen to the red dusty town of Windorah. Ms. Halle has a special talent of bringing you along in her imagination.
My heart hurt for Aksel, for what was done to him and by that for which he had did. He wanted to be loved. That’s it, he just wanted the love that had been denied him since birth.
Aurora was a girl with a past. A tragic past that she learned to rise above, to become someone new. But as life teaches us, if you don’t confront the past and cleanse your soul it will haunt you.
This love story was a slow, delicious burn. And when Axsel and Aurora finally come together, well it’s a good thing that Kindles aren’t known to spontaneously combust because this surely would have caused it to go up in flames!
I loved the bit of intrigue and mystery. It kept my up most of the night to finish this! The secondary characters are spectacular and bring so much more depth to the story.
I have yet to read a book by this author that I haven’t absolutely loved! This story is a refreshing fairy tale in the modern world! Well done Ms. Halle!!
