His True Queen – Jodi Ellen Malpas


The Controversial Princess – Jodi Ellen Malpas



Unexpected. Sensational. Sinfully Sexy!

“She’s the one in control. She is the one calling the shots. She’s the one men bow to.”

Adeline, princess of England is a phenomenal character. When I think of princesses and fairytale type romances, I think of something sweet and fun. This isn’t your typical “princess” story!! Adeline lives to break rules and longs to live her life free of the burden she faces as a royal. I immediately fell for her. I loved her tenacity! However, Josh stole the show!

“I owned you the second you dropped to your knees for me, Your Highness.”

Josh Jameson, American actor and heartthrob is a take charge sort of man. That’s putting it mildly. When he sets his sights on Addy, all bets are off. I loved the chase and absolutely loved the ending!

The Controversial Princess is simply AMAZING! Adeline and Josh’s story was completely unexpected! I loved every minute of it! The immediate chemistry between the characters, Adeline’s strong-willed personality, and Josh’s steadfast pursuit drew me in and didn’t let go until I read the last page. I’m in book hangover heaven right now. I can’t get the next one fast enough!

Highly recommended!

The Controversial Princess – Jodi Ellen Malpas


Her father is The King of England.

She is The Controversial Princess.

Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors – lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.

That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her – his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.

But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.

And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction.

She was soon signed by Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, and the third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time. With so much love and enthusiasm for her words, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore and has since let it run riot. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion–a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her real-life man, her boys, and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse and mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for alpha males.  Her work is now published in more than twenty-five languages across the world.
