"Julie Johnson constantly evolves as an author. She doesn't rest on her laurels, she tries for more, and she achieves it. With Dirty Halo, this sensuous, dark fairytale that set my world ablaze, she justified once more my trust and unwavering faith in her stories." 
- Katerina, Goodreads reviewer, ★★★★★

"Dirty Halo was everything I didn't know I wanted to read. I know that without question I will love everything that Julie Johnson writes, and I wasn't quite sure what we were going to get in Dirty Halo, but it was utterly breathtaking, suspenseful and jaw-droppingly sexy." 
- Joy, HEA Novel Thoughts ★★★★★

"I devoured this book. Julie Johnson always writes every story unlike her previous. I fell deep into the pages of Emilia & Carter, but more importantly I enjoyed so much the character development about a ordinary girl who’s life is tuned upside down while she takes on every battle like Royalty in the Making. " 
- Yvette, Books and Bandanas ★★★★★

"YOU GUYS!!! OMG!! I am still trying to catch my breath from the amazing ride that was Julie Johnson's Dirty Halo."

Emilia Lancaster is the royal family’s dirty little secret.

Born the illegitimate daughter of a duke, for twenty years she’s lived as a commoner… despite the regal blood running through her veins. But when the entire royal family is killed in a deadly attack, the line of succession swiftly changes course. With her ailing father appointed king and no legitimate heirs in sight, Emilia is pulled from the shadows and thrust into a destiny she never wanted.

If this were a fairy tale, the palace would be paradise. In reality, with a father she barely knows on the throne, a deadly assassin still on the loose, and enemies around every gilded corridor corner — the callous, captivating Lord Carter Thorne chief among them — it feels more like a prison to Emilia. One filled with unattainable expectations, unfamiliar customs, and undesirable suitors.

They want her to behave like a good little girl.

They want her to put on her glittering crown and keep her mouth shut.

They’re about to be disappointed.

She may have agreed to be their princess…

But she’s no one’s puppet.

DIRTY HALO is a royal romance about an ordinary girl who inherits an extraordinary legacy. Filled with forbidden love, murderous plots, and machiavellian intrigue, it is recommended for mature readers only. It is the first book in the FORBIDDEN ROYALS TRILOGY.
