Blurb


Cinderella meets Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in this tale of power, lust, and royal deception…
One crown prince; one “playboy prince”…
One con artist; one petty thief…
One twisted plot for revenge.
When Grand Duke Reginald Winchester is exiled in disgrace, he vows he won’t go down without a fight. Crossing paths with Zee Wilder and her younger sister Ava at a gambling resort in Miami is the stroke of luck he needs.
Zee is the counterfeit courtier in Reggie’s plan to humiliate Rowan, the controlled heir who kicked him out of the kingdom. In return, the sisters get a permanent spot on Easy Street.
If only Zee didn’t keep finding herself in a clutch with Cal, Rowan’s playboy younger brother. Ava’s no help, as she finds quiet walks in the moonlight discussing poetry and leadership with the brooding, future king irresistible. Even more irresistible is kissing his luscious lips.
The whole plan is falling apart, and neither sister is sure she wants to stop it.

Review by: Leeann 

Ok, so when I started reading this book I thought I knew where it was headed & what was going to happen next.
I thought the Prince meets the con artist and they fall in love but he finds out she is a liar and they break up then they get back together..
I got that very very wrong!
This story is so far removed from that story line it isn’t funny.
Zelda Is a con artist & Rowan is a prince but that is where that story line ends. There are two other people involved & they play just as bigger
part in this story as Rowan & Zelda do.
Zelda & her sister Ava have been taken to Monagasco under false pretences and by the time they realise it they are in too deep.
Rowan is in the process of becoming King of Monagasco and he has no bigger supporter than his brother Macallum. But someone does not want Rowan
to be crowned king.

This story is full of deceit, lust, power struggles, sexy, steamy and suspense. From the very beginning I was drawn in & constantly waiting to
see what drama was going to unfold next. Just when I thought I knew where it is going the direction changes. You really need to pay attention to detail when reading this
book as there were a few times I did need to go back & re read as I had missed something small that had a huge impact on what I was reading.
The book is well written, the characters are well developed & interesting. It is written in a dual POV which makes the direction the story takes all the more interesting.
You will see what I mean by that when you read it. 

I really love stories where they characters at the beginning for whatever reason have no conscious or thoughts of the consequences for their actions, but then by the end they have
A complete personality transformation & become better more likeable people. This is one of those books. You honestly can’t help but like the characters despite their flaws
and find yourself hoping they get the happy ending they have redeemed themselves into deserving!

This is a great read and I can’t wait for book two’s release later in the year!

Review by: Gina 

Love, Lies, and Deceit at it's finest. 

I was super excited when I heard Tia Louise was coming out with a new series but I was a little skeptical about because of the use of Duke and Lord. It sounded like it could have been a historical romance but it was not at all. It is a modern fairy tale kind of story with Royals. 

I loved the characters, they were really fun to get to know. At first, it did get confusing because there were four main characters to keep straight vs. just two. But I did get use to it. I enjoyed the story line and how all the character eventually became involved with each other. It was a fun, interesting way to bring them all together. I thought the story was well written and it was easy to decipher what characters point of view we getting. The story did seem to plateau a little in the middle but then did pick back up towards the end. We are left with a cliffhanger but I am excited to see what will come next.  

4 Stars

~ Zelda ~

“Come,” he groans. “Come for me.”

I’m clenching and gasping as he moves in a rhythm faster, provoking the orgasm spiking my veins. He’s never been like this. The Playboy Prince is gone, and instead this conqueror has me, taking what he wants.

He kisses my back, and the scruff of his beard clenches my insides, causing him to groan. “I want you to know I’ve been here. I want you to feel me wherever you go.”

“Oh, god… Yes!” I fumble my hand to cover his moving swiftly between my legs as my vision darkens, my brain scrambles.

I brace against the wall of the Jacuzzi as he blows my mind. Then all at once, he starts to jerk, groaning and pulsing. My insides break, and I come with a ragged cry. He continues rocking us as the sensations flutter and ripple through my legs, through the arches of my feet.

We’re move together slower. I’m trembling, and he’s pulsing above me, at my back, sliding his warm hands down the length of my back. I want to curl into his arms. I want him to hold me as I hold him. I want to wrap my arms around his neck and never leave. I want to bask in this afterglow, forgetting everything and pretending I can keep this beautiful man, this beautiful dream.

He slowly pulls out, and I feel the traces of cum on my thighs from an orgasm I can’t wrap my mind around. Turning to on the padded leather step, he pulls me onto his lap.

My knees are bent, and my cheek is against his skin. We’re breathing hard, still coming down, and he slides his hand gently down my hair. Turning my face, I kiss his neck. My heart feels shattered yet whole. He stormed in and took it, and I don’t know if I’ll ever get it back. He’s right. No matter where I go, I’ll remember this night. I’ll remember how I gave him everything.

The hand that was stroking my hair moves around to my chin, and he lifts my face. Without a word, he kisses me so deeply. My mouth opens readily, and our tongues slide together. It’s warm, tasting, bonding and urgent. Tears heat my closed eyes, and I reach up to hold him, to wrap my arms around his neck, as we communicate in a way words can’t capture.

His lips chase mine, kissing me over and over, nipping my top lip and moving higher to my closed eyes. I’m sure he can taste the salty tears there, hiding behind my lids. He kisses my forehead and then holds me in a long embrace.
