The breathtaking conclusion of the Smoke & Mirrors Duology.

A beautiful, defiant princess. A renowned, sinfully gorgeous Hollywood actor.

A love affair that is sure to rock the British Monarchy…and the world.

Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible—her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both. Josh’s absolute disregard for Adeline’s status quickly drew her into his hedonistic world. And her perfectly worn mask and false façade captivated Josh to the point of obsession. The boundaries became blurred. The physical became emotional. Their hearts became entwined.

But a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands. The army of royal advisors who guard the secrets and scandals of the Monarchy will go to unthinkable lengths to keep the smoke and mirrors in place…and Josh away from Adeline. She knows the power she possesses comes with agonizing sacrifices. Walking away from Josh devastates her…but it keeps him safe from the corrupt institution that has ruled her life.

Yet Josh refuses to lose the woman who has consumed him so completely, distorted his boundaries, and stripped him of all sensibility.

Will the power of the British Monarchy triumph? Or will their fierce love for each other change the course of history?

Book Review: 4.5 Stars


HIS TRUE QUEEN was one of my most anticipated books for this year! Jodi left us with more questions than answers in book 1, THE CONTROVERSIAL PRINCESS and I couldn’t wait to read the final installment of the SMOKE AND MIRRORS duet. As soon as I got it I devoured it! I barely came up for air! I needed all my questions answered and I can say with no mistake, that Jodi answered every one I had. She simply nailed it with this book (again!). With the plot, the development, the twist and turns, everything was perfection.! This book has everything we want as romance readers: romance, sexy/steamy scenes, intrigue, mystery…WOW! Who would imagine all the “smokes and mirrors” that the Monarchy hides!!! #SeeWhatIDidTHere *wink*

After The King’s dead, Adeline’s destiny is sealed, she must be the new Queen of England and the chance to live her own life with her “American Boy”, Josh, is fading away. What they could have is becoming more of a dream, than reality. There is no chance that the Monarchy will approve their relationship, and the mere idea of this breaks Adeline’s heart (mine too). Of course this “obstacle” won’t stop Josh, he can’t lose the only woman he has ever loved, moreover he won’t lose HIS QUEEN!

This story was absolutely a roller coaster of feelings! When you think that no more events can happen…*BAM* When you think that there is nothing else to do, no hope…*BAM* There comes a plot twist to change the whole story again. I blame Jodi for ruining my manicure! You find a light at the end of the tunnel, but expect the unexpected!!! So please give a chance to this amazing Princess that won’t follow the rules. I will admit, I didn’t care for some of her decisions and judged her at first, but I am SO happy I was willing to see her character growth all the way to the end. I recommend you buy the duet right now!!! Jodi did NOT disappoint! Not to mention that Jodie’s writing is brilliant and her stories are amazing as always!
