Review: Palace Secrets by Ravyn Rayne @BlushingRavyn

Palace Secrets By Ravyn Rayne

Love comes in many forms and always at a price.

At twenty-three, Princess Isabella must settle down for the sake of her kingdom. Caught up in a secret affair with her lady-in-waiting, Hannah, the princess knows it can only last for so long.

When Prince Alexander arrives to court her, he confides that his father is on his death bed, and he will be crowned king soon. Isabella hastily agrees to the proposal, desiring to be queen, knowing little about her soon to be husband.

Murder, secrets, and lies combine with menage, spanking, and erotic encounters in this steamy medieval romance. 


"Make a sound and you'll get another spanking," Alexander says. His tone is firm but light. Unlike the last time, he doesn't sound angry or disappointed with me. Is this how our lovemaking will be?

I'm both aroused and craving more of Alexander's affection. I bury my face into the pillow, trying my best not to make any noise. I moan quietly as his lashings grow harder, burning against my skin, making me wet. I'm glad Alexander's attention is on me. There's something about his power and control that fires me up inside. Is he doing this to teach me a lesson for being naughty or to arouse me?

"No, Hannah." Alexander's answer is both quick and abrupt. "I'm the only one in charge.
Maybe I should spank you both regularly for sneaking around the castle, behind my back. Would that make sure it doesn't happen again?" Alexander lets his hand land hard on my bottom. The sting grows fierce and I whimper in protest. When will his spankings turn to sex? He offered it to me the last time and I rejected him. It had been the only amount of control that I'd been given. Tonight, I would give him everything, and if he asked me to beg, I would.

Character Interview w/Prince Alexander

1. What was your first thought upon meeting Princess Isabella?
Her beauty blinded me, until she opened her mouth. Which quickly reminded me why I was really there, to secure a wife and the future of my kingdom. She was a handful then and is no less of one now.
2. Is Isabella the first woman you’ve spanked?
Now that’s quite a personal question! I’ve had a few women court me, but none as bold or troublesome as Isabella. Figure the answer out for yourself.
3. Do you worry about the growing tensions between kingdoms?
Terribly but it’s not something I wish to discuss. I assure you our guards are always on patrol and so long as I’m on the throne, you are safe.

My Review:
I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

At the age of twenty-three it is time for Princess Isabella to get married. She is not too thrilled about the idea of marriage to anyone much less someone she doesn't even know. But she is the princess and must do what a princess must do for her family and her kingdom. So if she must marry then Isabella has decided that she will marry Prince Alexander. His father is on his death bed so therefore Prince Alexander will become the King of his kingdom real soon. Princess Isabella figures if she is to be married then she must choose the Prince that will make her a Queen soon. She doesn't want to wait until she is an old woman and can’t enjoy being a Queen.

Isabella and Alexander are both use to getting what they want with both of them being a Princess and a Prince. So when they get married and move to Prince Alexander's castle Isabella sneaks off a lot from the prince and gets herself into lots of trouble with the prince. When he finally catches her he punishes her for disobeying him. He spanks her and promises that there will be more where that came from if she doesn't learn to do as she is told. Isabella lives in a time where the woman has to obey the man and hope she lucks up and gets a good man; one that doesn't hurt her. 

When Isabella first moves to Prince Alexander's home she thinks that she has maybe made the right choice in picking her man. But after she has been there awhile things start to turn around on her. She witnesses a murder and she is being spanked herself. She is not sure that she can stay there and ever be happy. She begins to wonder if she might need to leave the prince. But leaving ones husband in her time period is not as easy as it sounds. One reason being is that most people don't marry for love they marry for convenience or arranged marriages.  

Palace Secrets is one of those books that will keep you on your toes or the Princes herself will. You feel as if you are following her around and watching her and always trying to figure out what she is going to do next. Ravyn keeps you in suspense trying to figure out if the Prince is a good person or not. With Ravyn behind the wheel/story you never know what is going to pop up next. And she will make you love all of her characters no matter if they are bad or good. They will always be doing something that will keep you wanting to turn them pages so fast that you will end up your fingers smoking. Oh but that is no problem as the Prince is smoking hot too. If you love the historical novels and that time period then you are going to love Ravyn's Palace Secrets. Palace Secrets is so hot that I can't wait for the next book in the series. If you haven't read it then you need to get your hands on a copy ASAP!
