The only thing harder than being a royal? Falling in love with one.


As a political blogger living in Manhattan, I have no time to date. My few free hours are spent with best friend Soraya, and her husband Graham. Love has no place in this equation.

Then Prince Zan walks into the coffee shop. He’s confident and different from other men, making it clear from our first conversation royal lineage won’t stand in his way.

I know better than to be carried away by green eyes and soft lips.

But if that’s the case, how did I end up in his bed?


My dark past is a nightmare I can’t escape from. It was anything but easy to become a royal.

Then I met Belinda. She might be a commoner, but there’s nothing at all common about this woman. One look is all it takes. Maybe if I bring her to my homeland she’ll be under its spell too.

But the differences between our two worlds seem impossible to overcome. I refuse to ignore my duty and passion for my people, and Belinda won’t abandon her career.

The right woman or destiny? Whatever it takes, I’m determined to have both.


Royal Pain is another steamy edition to the Cocky Hero Club series by author Leslie Pike. Opposites attract in this royal romance of choosing between love and duty. Follow your heart by devouring this passionate love story today!

Zan is a Prince who came into the royal family under the most tragic of circumstances and although they may not be related by blood they are related by love. The entire family is in NY for a visit for a reason they want to keep private until fate brings Belinda into his life.

Belinda has created quite the reputation for herself for being honest yet ethical when it comes to the people she interviews for her blog. She recognized Zan from their first meeting and he offers her an interview with his family and from then on their lives and their hearts were entwined.

There is no denying the love between them but between the fact that she has a life in NY while he lives in Africa and the changes within Zan’s family their journey isn’t without its challenges.
