“911. What is your emergency?”

Every night, Zara Llewelyn picks up the phone and assists people in distress. House fires. Assault. Motor vehicle accidents. Home invasions...

Between the hours of six and two, she is the answer to a thousand cries for help. But when the payphone outside Zara’s apartment building mysteriously begins ringing night after night, the very last thing she wants to do is pick it up. And yet, she can’t seem to help herself...

Pasha Rivin’s trying to outrun fate. He’s been running from it for years now, but escape isn’t in his cards. As the oldest son of the oldest Roma family in the country, he’s not just a member of a proud and fiercely traditional clan. He is their reluctant king...and now he’s expected to find a wife.

The fiery redhead that shows up on his doorstep, following a trail of breadcrumbs, hunting for a missing little boy, is the last person Pasha’s mother has in mind, however. She’s an outsider, an intruder, and as far as his family are concerned, she’s not welcome on their land, let alone in their king’s bed.

Pasha has never allowed his destiny to stand in the way of what he wants, however. And he’s never wanted anything more than he wants the girl with the burning red hair.


Zara Llewelyn picked up the phone and learned a secret.

Falling in love has never been so dangerous...

Roma King started really strong and I was intrigued to see which direction Callie Hart would take this story. The suspense and mystery of it was also done really well, and it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the story. So why a 3 star rating you may ask. It's because I just couldn't connect to the characters and their familiarity didn't feel genuine. They felt an unusual connection to each other from the start, and if this unrealistic connection happened in a paranormal romance I would've been fine with it. I'll need more answers and secrets to be revealed in the sequel before I can feel a different way about this. For now it was a bit too much and it felt a bit fairytalish. I think the biggest problem for me was that there was a lot going on and I didn't get a lot of answers. 

"You're no nightmare, Zara Llewelyn. You're every single beautiful dream I've ever had. And I don't plan on letting you go now."

I have to admit that I do love the atmosphere of the story and the Roma aspect of the story is awesome. Even though I rated this book 3 stars, I do have very high hopes for the sequel. This book was more of a build-up to major things that will happen next. Because of the lack of connection I felt between and with the characters I just didn't care for the 'relationship' between them. I was more interested in the suspense and mystery that were on the foreground of the story. And that was done really well. Roma King was for me an okay romantic suspense read, that has me interested to find out what will happen next. It also original and the writing style was easy to read and had a great pacing. If you like what you read in the blurb, then definitely give it a try!
