A Nordic King by Karina Halle
Publication Date: September 21, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.
Aurora is called into a meeting for a new nanny position and can’t belief she has to fly to Denmark to meet the family. Imagine her surprise when she arrives at a Palace and her charges are princesses who have lost their mother in a car accident months before.
After meeting the princesses Clara and Freja and immediately happy and feeling comfortable with each other after entertaining the girls with stories of goddesses. All goes well until she meets King Asshole who immediately tries to send her away. Aksel is attracted straight away, after his wife’s betrayal he doesn’t want to feel attracted to someone again.
Aurora is Australian and has an irreverent attitude towards royalty, and just brings a happiness and lightness to the girls’ life. I enjoyed the sparing between Aurora and Aksel as they fight their attraction to each other. This is a light hearted romance with lots of humour thrown in. An enjoyable romance, now I’m going to read about the other kings in the series.
