From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Nashoda Rose, comes a new, sexy standalone romance novel.
It was one night together.
I wasn’t supposed to see him again.
I never thought I would.
And then, the six foot three cement graffiti wall of badass strides back into my life, and does it full force.
Now he’s protecting me from his past and I’m protecting myself against the heated chaos he erupts in my body. It doesn’t help that he can do playful and sweet, when he’s not doing bossy.
But the overly confident, playboy Deaglan Kane is danger, has no boundaries, and is totally off limits.
And I know behind his walls there’s a man with a dark and damaged past.
A man more dangerous. A man who may be the greatest threat of all.
The Irish Crown.

I’m a huge fan of Nashoda Rose’s Tear Asunder series as well as her Unyielding series. There’s just something about Rose’s no bullshit alpha males and how they claim and protect those they love, refusing to allow anything to touch them and fighting like hell for payback if anything does. Every single one of her heroes are broken in some way, but they’ve learned to channel the rage and torment that consumes them making bad men pay and working to be better men for the women who own them, body and soul.
As soon as I was introduced to Deaglan Kane, I knew that Rose would take her time exposing his layers and revealing exactly why he is the man he is – one who doesn’t get attached…one who is only with a woman once…one who’s built such an impenetrable wall around his past and his heart that no one has the knowledge or the strength to try to knock it down. But I also knew that once he found the woman who would make him go against all of his rules that he would do anything to experience her rarity…her stubbornness…her resilience…her love.
But even though I rationally knew that Deaglan’s past dictates much of his present, meaning that there was a reason for his callousness, his actions in the story’s initial scene still DID NOT sit well with me, especially given how it was such a significant step for Eva to put herself out there like she did, so the fact that his actions made her feel like garbage make me unimpressed with the man who was meant to be the hero of Irish Crown.
I really liked Eva from the start, and it made sense that she would pick someone the exact opposite of her abusive ex to finally take a chance on, and even though his response after their time together left her feeling discarded and used, the impression that they left on each other made it seem like their connection wasn’t over, and as the story continues that idea solidifies and what started between Eva and Deaglan grows into something Deaglan never knew he wanted but now knows he’s unwilling to live without, but what that means for his secrets and the dangerous life that he lives is still a point of contention, especially when his past and his present intersect, meaning that how Deaglan proceeds will either cost him Eva or potentially his life.
Irish Crown fits perfectly into the type of storytelling and character development that readers have come to expect from Nashoda Rose, and I loved catching up with some of my favorite characters from her other two series. And I’m happy to say that by the time Deaglon finally shares his whole story with Eva and with readers, I clearly understood why he was the man that he was and why his feelings for Eva, at first, scared him but after made him determined to set things right with her, switching his focus to what mattered most – protecting and keeping Eva and turning the boy and man he was into one who deserved the rarity that Eva is.
