King of Wall Street

At work, I’m King of Wall Street. The heaviest hitters in Manhattan come to me to make money. They do whatever I say because I’m always right. I’m shrewd. Exacting. Some say ruthless.

At home, I’m a single dad trying to keep his fourteen year old daughter a kid for as long as possible. If my daughter does what I say, somewhere there’s a snowball surviving in hell. And nothing I say is ever right.

When Harper Jayne starts as a junior researcher at my firm, the barriers between my worlds begin to dissolve. She’s the most infuriating woman I’ve ever worked with.

I don’t like the way she bends over the photocopier—it makes my mouth water.

I hate the way she’s so eager to do a good job—it makes my dick twitch.

And I can’t stand the way she wears her hair up exposing her long neck. It makes me want to strip her naked, bend her over my desk and trail my tongue all over her body.

If my two worlds are going to collide, Harper Jayne will have to learn that I don't just rule the boardroom. I’m in charge of the bedroom, too.

Duke of Manhattan

I was born into British aristocracy, but I’ve made my fortune in Manhattan.

A family feud means I need to inherit the title I’ve never wanted-so I need a wife.

I didn’t bargain on finding a one night stand across the boardroom table the next day. I wonder if she'll marry me?

The British Knight

Nothing and no one will stand in the way of my destiny. Not my ex-wife. Or opposing counsel. And certainly not Violet King, my disarmingly beautiful and annoyingly feisty new assistant.

Resisting this woman is more challenging than any court battle-and the only one I've secretly wanted to lose.

The Earl of London

On a spring morning in the English countryside, a tall, dark stranger emerges from the mist. He's all tousled hair, hard chest and perfectly kissable lips. I'm sure that’s a thunderclap of chemistry I feel between us.

Did I mention he’s an Earl with a self-made fortune?

A billionaire who works tirelessly for charity?

And he’s so hot, watching him is like staring at the sun.

Turns out the stranger's out to destroy everything I’ve dedicated my life to protect, the chemistry disappears and the hope that had blossomed my chest turns to rage.

Park Avenue Prince

I’ve made every one of my billions of dollars myself. I’m calculating, astute and the best at what I do. It leaves no time for love. Until an impatient, smart-talking, beyond beautiful heiress bursts into my world.

She might be a princess but I’m going to show her who rules her body.

I fell in love with all these characters and the beautiful stories that are written between the pages of these books! I was so immersed in these books that I kept telling myself just one more chapter, just one more until the very end. I just couldn't put these books down because they were filled with witty banter and combustible chemistry. If you love strong-willed heroines and domineering heroes then you will be captivated by this boxset!

This series is so addictive!

4,5 stars

Max King is hot, sexy, hard worker, loyal and, even if the world doesn't know it, he is a family man! He is devoted, he is loving and caring and his daughter, Amanda, is his whole world. He is close to his sisters and he is fair.
Harper Jayne is fighting for her career. She is determined, strong, sassy and definitely a hard worker too. She has a lot of dad issues, and it is expected and fair that she has. And these issues made her hold some grudge that sometimes was responsible for holding her back and tricking her confidence.
Harper and Max were hot together and they got to know each other litlle by little, showing them that they were really compatible not just in the bedroom.

Ryder is a duke-to-be who needs to get married in order to keep the business he spent his whole life building. Even being a player when it comes to women, he is very loyal to his grandfather and sister.
Scarlett is still trying to get over her divorce and is working hard to keep her business alive, the business she worked so hard for the past couple of years since his ex left her.
Even starting this arranged relationship to save their works, they respected each other, and it was beautiful to watch.
They grew feelings for each other based not only on lust (although their chemistry was awesome) but also based on admiration, respect, friendship, complicity. They weren't just arranged husband and wife, they were partners, they were a team.

Violet is trying to get some perspective in her life, change the cenary, and for that she takes on her friend's sugestion, Darcy, to go to London and try something new for a bit. And that something new turns out to be: working with Alexander Knightley, a workaholic barrister who always puts work first.
Together, they start to find out that some feelings are more imponent than they can control, and in these situations, taking chances, making time, putting yourself in the open and vulnerable can be both terrifying and exilarating!
What may start as a lustful office affair can really be the one thing to change your life forever, either you are prepared for it or not. All you to do is be willing to compromise.

Darcy and Logan were both active, spirited, stubborn and devoted to what they believed. They lived a comfortable life, but they both also knew pain from the past. So that made wary toward each other, even though they couldn't fight the pull they have to be together.
They had flaws and qualities and they both made things right and made mistakes. Darcy, for a while, made me so mad! I understood her appeal to protect what she believed in, but she was so dense sometimes, that it was almost hipocritical.
Logan was his own kind of dense. He learnt the hard way that being a Earl meant nothing if you didn't work hard. His only north was adorable grandmother, and other than her, he never knew what love is. So it was hard to recognize, even though it was there, in front of him.
But the thing is when you find that kind of love, even if you're scared, even if you messed up, even if you have no idea what to do, there is one thing you learn: you fight that love, you prove, you show, you act about it, you say, you do whatever it takes to live that love and cherish as it must be.
Their paths had bumps along the road and some curves they didn't expect. But it also had everything they needed, everything they never knew they wanted.

Sam and Grace are the perfect match! They are both loyal, kind, generous, sweet and they are deep about their feelings, even if Sam has no idea about what to do with them.
Sam has a tough past surrounded by loss. Grace had everything her whole life, but that didn't spoil her. She is independent and strong, and she is a fixer. She wants everyone to be fine, to be happy, she is a nurturer.
They were adorable and so so sweet to read about.

After having already read The British Knight previously prior to attending RARE18 in London, I decided that this reader needed to read the entire back log.

So when I stumbled on the collection of 5 books in Louise Bay's Royal Series, I couldn't pass this up. And boy am I glad I didn't. What a collection of stories and characters. I love that each book has a slight connection to the previous one, characters overlapping and the like.

Each couple in this series are unique in their own way, each one as compelling as the other, but readers will have their favourites, don't we all. For me I cannot single one story or couple out, they are all brilliant in their own way. Bay is an excellent author, she cleverly creates a world where distance doesn't stop love and the blossoming romances in this series pays homage to that.

I love the clever use of the settings for this series, going between the UK and the US, we follow each story enraptured by the landscape and the inhabitants of that landscape. Bay gives us a sense that distance is but a mere inconvenience, one that will not stop the handsome men from perusing the beautiful ladies they are courting. Because really, if you love someone, distance shouldn't mean a thing.

I loved getting lost in this series, in diving head first into the romance, the decadence and the sexiness of all 5 books. In a world where we're trapped inside, unable to socialise, which for this reading hermit is a blessing, I felt like for the duration of my read, I escaped into another world. And trust me when I say, it was worth every moment.

Thank you Louise Bay for being such an amazing author, for creating such beautiful characters and giving us mere readers some place else to escape to.

I have submitted this review after listening to the audiobook of this title. (Audible Membership)

King of Wall Street

She had got her dream job, but her boss turned out to be a real pain. He ignored her and reduced her submitted paper to a red inked mess.
He couldn't keep his thoughts from the new employee, going out of his way to avoid interacting with her. However, his mind just kept straying her way when he should be focusing on business.

Park Avenue Prince

After his parents' death, when he was 12, he had been thrown into the "system," where only one fellow suffer emerged as friends in his own self-made future.
She sold the painting that meant so much to her to enable her independent dream to occur. It was in her Gallery, on its first opening, that they meet, and their lives changed forever.

Duke of Manhattan

She had a refinancing problem. He had a lack of matrimonial spouse problem concerning his inheritance of his British family estate.
Two birds, one stone, sounds simple, but then what fun would that be to read about?

The British Knight

This was one of those tales where he taught her the value of her life, and she helped him find a work home balance.
Of course, this is very condensed, but the story, as the author has presented it has lots of intriguing and sensual moments.
The presenters of the audiobook do an excellent job, adding that additional layer of pleasure to the whole story experience.

The Earl of London

He wasn't what he appeared, and at every turn, she had to reassess her ideas on him.
She, on the other hand, didn't fit any mould that he generally placed his women into. She kept him on his toes and was happy to go head to head with him.
An excellent tale!

I loved every one of the books in this series. They are all so swoon worthy.

King of Wall Street - It's sexy, sweet and funny. Great chemistry between the characters.
Duke of Manhattan - Loved Ryder & Scarlett, perfect for each other.
The British Knight - Such a fun read. Two different types of people who work out so well together.
The Earl of London - Darcy and Logan are perfect together even though they seem to be such opposites. This story was so sweet with lots of love and loyalty for family. I loved Logan's grandmother.
Park Avenue Prince - I absolutely loved this couple and their story, as well as their back story. Sam avoided becoming attached to anything or anyone because of his past and Grace was a "fixer" always dating the wrong kind of guy. It's sweet how they try their hardest to not like each other, which makes for such a sweet story but also a sexy story because their chemistry together is so hot.

King of Wall Street - 5 stars
Duke of Manhattan - 5 stars
The British Knight - 4 stars - This book was 5 stars until close to the end. I didn't like that
The Earl of London - 5 stars
Park Avenue Prince - 3 stars - Again, this book was 5 stars until the end. I can tell you ... if a man treated me like that, it would be a LONG time before I forgave him or trusted him again.

They were ok

There were 5 books total.
Book 1- This was the start and I almost stopped reading here. For an Alpha Male, Max was too soft and the things he would say were sometimes a turn off.
Book 2- My Favorite and this book alone would have been 5 stars. Ryker was hot and the storyline was interesting. My only dislike was Scarlett kept saying their love couldn't be real....uugh.
Book 3- It was based in London and was kind of boring. Workaholic cant have fun , blah, blah
Book 4- City boy meet County girl, dragged on.
Book 5- Somewhat better, these males need to grow a pair, not the alphas I was hoping for.

This incredible box set is totally delicious!! One-click gets you this complete series that features five heroes that bring all the steam and swoon you know you desire in your reads.

The characters are complex and the chemistry off the charts! In my opinion this excellent collection of reads is a absolute must for any romance reader.

Okay.. so this one was interesting. I've read the first story in this series before and I really like it. I was excited to get the entire series together. I think putting it all together pointed out something very interesting to me, these books are formulaic. It's the same story told with slight variations. Add to that that the last book in this collection is actually the second book in the series and I found myself unimpressed and unable to really submerse myself in the stories. The story itself was good.. the first time around.

These books will have you swooning so hard, there’s something so addictive about these stories! From the bossy CEO single father, to the Duke needing a Duchess, and let’s not forget the British Knight who I have to say is my absolute favourite! Get lost in Louise’s world, swept away with a group of amazing characters whose lives all intertwine yet have their own stories full of laughter, emotion and a whole heap of sass!

5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Louise Bay is one of my all time favourite authors, so I jumped for joy when I saw her Royal series all in one box set – and at such a bargain price! You’re definitely in for a treat!  (Get ready to swoon, laugh and cry!)

I've read and enjoyed them all – they are complete standalones, but it was lovely to see some characters making appearances in other books in the series.

I’d 100% recommend - you'll LOVE them!

I loved it!!! Just what I was looking for, a short love story about people who have been through a lot in their lives.... Wait and Hope and in the end you realise that waiting and hoping it's worth everything. Just the moment where they were in the elevator and he took her hand to get out of the car mistake I realised I was reading every single word in the book, the book was amazing, you are a delightful writer! Thank you!

Short on romance...

But long on sex. I didn’t really care for either of the first 2 books in the set.
Both were more or less the same...insta-lust. Lots and lots and LOTS of sex. No romance. Hea. The end.
Didn’t care for Hannah, or Max. Liked Ryder and Scarlet even less.
Hadn’t liked Violet well enough so far, to even begin her story.
I do like the fact all the characters carry over, from one book to the next. Unfortunately, that’s about the extent of my fondness for the set.

Highly enjoyable!

I liked the series overall but I will say that this author sometimes overlooks some details. Timelines didn’t always add up and character descriptions change from one book to another.

However, I really liked the build and angst of these characters and stories. I just wished that Park Avenue prince was in the proper order. In this box set, it was book five when it should have been two.

I've read all of these books and recommend them all if one is looking for a great series to cuddle up with. All the heroes are hot and alpha while the heroines are just as amazing. This set offers a variety of stories to get lost in that all make for hot reads. All of these stories were well written and highly recommended by this reader!

I have all these books separately and devoured each one pretty quickly. Not just because I'm a Louise Bay super fan, but because they're all equally brilliant stories. If you're after some escapism (who isn't right now!!) I couldn't recommend this box set enough. I've already reread 3 out of the 5 books and loving them all over again.

Long but worth the read.

I enjoyed this series. The Max and Harper were my favorite. Scarlett and Ryder (I hope that was his name. I forgot but I liked him.) were second. Violet and Alex were kind of boring. Darcy and the Earl were boring. Too much inner dialogue. Not sure why Grace and Sam's book was last. It should have been the third book.

Royals Series

I loved the story. The one thing that bothered me is that the stories were not consistent. In Ryder’s story, he had a sister named Darcy who was older than him. But when she got her own story, she was younger. I don’t know if I just got it all wrong and maybe it’s just a blip in the total scheme of things, but it really bothered me.

This box set has it all. The characters are fantastic, the storylines are excellent, and the sex is hot. With five sexy alpha males there’s a lot of romance, a tad heartache, and all the happily ever afters you could wish for. You won’t want to miss it!

Great series!

I loved all the stories and characters! They were full of passion, romance, emotional and sexy! My only gripe is the last story (Grace & Sam's) should been #2 instead of last.

Good stories

They're somewhat similar in their plots (i.e. man and woman meet, fall in love, man freaks out and runs when he doesn't feel worthy), however the circumstances are different in each story. I enjoy this author and will always read more.
