It was supposed to be a simple job, but nothing is ever simple.
Just a couple weeks in the Winston Isles, where no one knows that I’m a royal knight. Turns out, I’m a dead ringer for the billionaire Lord Arlington. Acting as his double should have been the easiest money I’ve ever made--until someone tries to kill me.
Since I’m still pretending to be a lord, I have no choice but to hire a smart mouthed, tight assed bodyguard. She’s the last thing I need. But she’s quickly becoming the only thing I want.
She’s determined, clever, and smart-mouthed. She’s the perfect woman.
And she has no idea I’m an imposter.
Good thing I have no intention of falling for her, or else I’d be royally screwed.
(This is Book 1 of the Billionaire duet. Zia and Theo's story continues in The Billionaire's Secret.)

What others are saying about Bodyguard to the Billionaire:
“Nana Malone has mad skill in writing a sexy, mysterious and royal romance. This is like a special trope for her. Bodyguard to the Billionaire carries the same yet different special flavor.

Review: Billionaire Duet 1: Bodyguard to the Billionaire
Bodyguard to the Billionaire by Nana Malone is the first book in The Billionaire Duet. This story of a cousin to King sebastian and a Royal Knight is a small step away from the palace and into the penthouse of Billioanire Derrick Arlington.
All is not as it seems in the Arlington household. Meet Theo, a Derrick lookalike who has to BE Derrick for the next thirty days and is under a tight contract to not say a word about his true identity to anyone under any circumstances. This makes life so much more difficult when he has to hire a bodyguard on his King's orders. A beautiful woman he already has had one encounter with, is desperate for more, is now his capable bodyguard. Shame she can only know him as Derrick...
Zia Barnes is a capable and competent member of the Royal Elite team and is itching for more field work. An itch she instantly regrets when she realizes her new charge is the beautiful grey eyed man from the night of the wedding. Can she keep him safe and keep her heart out of the equation?
Nana Malone is a must-read author for me. Her royal duets are addictive and intoxicating. I literally cannot get enough of the Winstone Isles and the royal family, Royal Elite and friends. Loved this. Ends on a cliffhanger, told in dual POV. Enjoy!
WOW I am so into this book!
WOW I am so into this book! At first I thought it was the typical billionaire love story, but I was so wrong and I’m so happy for it! Derrick approaches Theo with an offer that he can’t resist – pretend to be him for a month and he will make enough money to launch his career and take care of his mother. A no brainer, Theo takes the offer after coercing from his best friend, but once he arrives nothing goes as planned. What is supposed to be a low-key month turns into a nightmare when someone attempts to kidnap Theo and knows his actual identity! In comes Zia, who saves him once and then becomes his personal bodyguard, which we all know always turns into something more. But as the mystery of where Derrick really is becomes known, Zia’s world is turned upside down on who is who and who she can believe. This is a genius book and storyline and I couldn’t put it down from start to finish. And the cliffhanger?! I almost threw it across the room because I HAD to know the answers. Can’t wait for the next book to do that!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
