GIRL, HAVE YOU READ? You know a book is good when you hear that sentence! But in this case, the book is on pre-order and has not been released. However, UP had first dibs on this upcoming release and instead of asking have you read, we're here to let you know...GIRL! YOU MUST READ "Royal Secrets" by L.R. Jackson! Check out our official review and more information on the book and the author below!
Their story isn’t a fairy tale. It’s something else entirely…
The last thing King Dafari expects to find while traveling to America is love. Marrying a woman who isn’t from his native land is strictly forbidden, but Ebony is everything he could ever want—bold, selfless, and drop-dead gorgeous. No matter what laws and traditions stand between them, he wants to make her his. But that’s before he discovers she’s keeping secrets that could destroy them both.
Ebony isn’t exactly looking for love, either. She’s too busy running from her past mistakes and trying to reinvent herself to worry about romance. Then she crosses paths with the protective, mysterious, and oh-so-handsome Dafari. Resisting him proves to be more than she can handle, but as it turns out, her prince charming is keeping some secrets of his own.
As enemies of the crown circle, ghosts from their pasts loom large, and duty calls, Dafari and Ebony have to wonder if love might just be a royal luxury they can’t afford…
Official UP Review:
Royal Secrets is the story of Ebony and Dafari who were college sweethearts. Their love came down fast and furious and ended just as quickly. Secrets kept by both of them forced them to spend years apart, but as fate would have it, an unfortunate turn of events leads them back into each others' lives. And at the center of their sordid love, lies a sinister conspiracy that also threatens to shatter their lives forever. Will they be able to let go of the secrets of the past to open up honestly and receive each other or will the truth prove to be too detrimental for them to survive? That's if they can overcome the underlying obstacles that surround them.
This book is a beautiful display of the perfect love steeped in secrets and buried under betrayal. Ebony and Dafari take you on a journey that tugs at your heart as their longing for love and their personal struggles collide. (And ladies, you will have a new book bae in Dafari!) At the core of this story is a twisted tale that reveals lies and deceit so monumental that it could topple Ebony and Dafari before they can gain redemption and find true happiness. Guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat until the very last word, these characters will hold you captivate and remain on your mind and heart long after the pages have ended.
