Noble Prince by Devney Perry is now live!
The night Luke Rosen met Scarlett Marks was the only time he's regretted becoming chief of police. One horrific night of blood and death, and now she's living under his roof--all because he swore an oath to serve and protect.
Scarlett is stubborn and infuriating. She has no respect for the order in his structured life, and she never does anything she's told. Worse, she doesn't seem to care that the information she has on a motorcycle gang means she might end up dead. But her unwavering strength, her courage and tenacity and beauty, makes it impossible for him to abandon her.
If Luke is going to keep her safe, he'll have to make the hardest decision of his life. He can either honor his values as a cop, knowing Scarlett is unlikely to survive . . . or he can break all the rules and protect the woman who's invaded his home and his heart.

“If you’re not going to get out of the way, I’ll just go around.” I spun on my shoes, whirling the opposite direction, but when I went to take a step and carry my basket away, I suddenly found its weight missing from my arm. He’d stolen it from me before I’d had the chance to clutch it tight.
Then the world was spinning. The floors, the ceiling, everything flipped topsy-turvy.
No, that wasn’t right.
I was being carried. Hauled. That had been Luke’s threat and damn it, I’d underestimated him. The chief had made good on his word.
His shoulder dug into my belly as he walked. I lifted my face, pushing the hair out of my eyes. My basket of food sat exactly where I’d been standing. My chicken and rolls and cookies and chocolate milk. The items grew smaller with every one of Luke’s strides.
“Put me down.”
He kept walking.
“Put me down!” I shouted.
Still, he kept walking.
I lifted a hand and raised it above my head. My hair kept falling in front of my face, obscuring my vision, but that didn’t stop me from using every ounce of strength I had left. I brought my fist down on Luke’s lower back. Except my aim was shit so I didn’t hit his back. No, my fist bounced off his firm, perfect ass.
Luke didn’t so much as break his stride. “I promised Presley I’d keep you safe.”
And without another word, without stopping, he carried me in a fireman’s hold out of the grocery store and into the snow.
I was going back to the daisies, whether I wanted to or not.

When I first picked up Gypsy King as a free read, all I knew about it was that it was by Devney Perry and I enjoyed other books I had read by her. Now, after reading Noble Prince (book 4) all I know is that I am hooked and can’t wait to see what happens next to the Tin Gypsy family.
The Tin Gypsy series books are all connected, so if you haven’t (at least) read Stone Princess, then Nobel Prince would not be the best place to start as events here pick up almost immediately after the conclusion of Stone Princess.
Nobel Prince fits right in with the previous Tim Gypsy books. There is an element of danger and intrigue combined with a growing romance between two people you wouldn’t automatically put together.
I genuinely liked Scarlett and Luke. I appreciated how we got to see her blossom from scared and hurt to a strong, determined force claiming her life back. Luke is the classic,
strong hero who has an incredible amount of patience in giving Scarlett the time and space she needs.
Ms Perry does an excellent job of weaving the various elements of the story together to create a book that I didn’t want to put down. We were very much in Scarlett and Luke’s shoes as they struggled with how to do the right thing. This story was one more piece of the Tin Gypsy puzzle that has me curious about the next piece!
