From New York Times Bestselling author, CD Reiss, comes a sexy tale of secrets, intrigue, betrayal, and a love worth crossing a continent for.
Meet the Author:
CD Reiss is a New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to try her hand at books.
She’s been nicknamed the “Shakespeare of Smut,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Rules for my new job:
1) Do not have sex with a man in the office (again).
2) Do not break Rule #1
I’m playing it cool, clean, and professional…until I meet Roman Bianchi. He’s not an insecure nerd or an ego-hole like the other kings of Silicon Valley. He’s charming and handsome. He’s fun, funny, and smart.
He’s also in the office across the hall.
Two broken rules waiting to happen.
I can’t lose this job over some guy.
But Roman’s not just some guy. Under that suit and cocky smile, he’s a prince.

CD Reiss returns to the world of hackers and corporate boardroom games with her 1001 Dark Nights novella, Prince Roman. It’s an engaging, smart, and sexy read that’s sure to please fans of the series and new fans alike. I loved it!
What I loved:
The premise of the book really stood out for me. Being a female in a male dominated work force and understanding the office politics of working in corporate America really made this a fun read.
I loved both characters immensely. The initial game they play with one another in the boardroom was super cute and almost like a form of foreplay. Who hacked who the best has its merit. But Roman really stands out. He’s a great male lead. He’s strong and charismatic, but also giving and sweet. I loved the characteristics and how they play off one another.
I didn’t see the story playing out the way it did. That’s one of the things CD Reiss always does so well. Her stories aren’t predictable in the least. You always get a fun and thoughtful read from her. What’s most impressive though, is how much she fit into this super short novella. Man, I swear she’s a magician.
Overall, this was a huge win for me.
Interesting. Smart. Sexy. Fun and Flirty! That sums up this novella perfectly! I highly recommend it. I know everyone loved Taylor, but I’m thinking Prince Roman owns my heart….at least until Keaton returns to claim it.
