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.
Like I have always reiterated- Devney Perry can do nothing wrong for me. Her romances have all the workings that I need to read, to find a reprieve from the reality that tends to get a bit taxing on my soul.
Noble Prince, the fourth book in the Tin Gypsy series – an MC romance series that neither too gritty nor too sappy – what it is the perfect amalgamation of sexy alphas and the badass women who bring them to their knees.
What ya’ll need to know before you move forward is that while each book in the series is about a stand-alone couple, this is a slow burn series with a singular arc that started with the first book in the series; this there could be spoilers in this review.
Noble Prince picks up exactly where the Stone Princess (Read My Review) leaves – with our very own smexy Sheriff, Luke Rosen taking away the sister in trouble, Scarlett Marks – who is now on the run, sort of from the MC that her ex belonged to. Luke has no choice but to pick her, screaming and put her in a safe house for safety. Which works for a while, till she manages to escape (again, it’s not really an escape cause she actually just walks out) so he brings her back to his own place.
I gotta say, while I understood the whole “damsel in distress” trope – I didn’t really want that for Luke – he is such a stand up, honest to God, a good guy – he deserved a woman who could match him. I didn’t if Scarlett was ever going to be that woman for him.
Like always, I should have trusted Ms. Perry – she brought forth a wonderful connection between two characters who were, in the end, perfect for each other – and the hints of suspense sprinkled throughout the story had me at the edge of the seat right till the end.
I read this one through a reading slump; so I didn’t exactly go through it, in one sitting, but the fact that this book didn’t make me put it down uninterestedly, is the testament to the talent that Ms. Devney Perry showcases in every book!

“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.
