Hired for His Royal Revenge by Lorraine Hall. What an adventure! Packed to the brim with passion and adventure I could not put it down.

Without spoiling the awesomely unique opening chapters the story commences when fiercely brave Al and billionaire Lysias meet each other for the first time. Originally wanting to hire Al to deploy his plan of revenge; it’s not long before Lysias swiftly changes his plans and asks (orders) Al to be his pretend wife and long lost missing sister of King Diamandis. Lysias has a King to destroy but he’s seriously distracted by his immense attraction to Al. There’s something about Lysias that makes Al throw caution to the wind and take a risk. Show me everything she begs Lysias.

In amongst the beautiful chaos of Lysias’s plans of revenge; the author weaves a fantastically fun and humorous story. There is next level revenge plans. There is a delicious King Diamandis who is subject of book 2. There is a lovely twist. There is beautiful locations and terrible tragedies of the past are confronted. Most of all there is love. There is promise of more in Book 2 – especially when the King declares he will never marry.

Al and Lysias are passion and adventure from page one. Their connection lights up every page. Mixed with the brilliantly funtastic and unique opening chapters all I can think to say is how much Hired for His Royal Revenge lit up my world. So, so good!
