From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Claire Contreras comes a new story in her Sexy Royals series…
Princess Pilar is tired of playing by the rules. She’s sick of the spotlight and being seen as the uptight goody-too-shoes the media has cast her to be. She’s especially tired of the fact that her brothers are allowed to run off and do whatever they want while she sits inside watching the world pass her by. That’s why she decides that while her older brothers are off on their usual summer holidays, she’s going to quietly pack her things and travel to the one place her parents have always forbidden her to step foot on – Ibiza.
As the star of the French premiere fútball league, Benjamin Drake has it all – the money, the cars, the clothing contracts, and any woman he wants. Problem is, the only woman Ben has ever wanted badly enough to stop partying is Princess Pilar, the one he can never, ever have. Despite his fame and achievements, in Pilar’s world, she’ll always be royalty and he’ll always be a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who got lucky. He’d never be accepted. He knows that. Yet, when he spots Pilar partying at the same club as him, all bets are off. He’s determined to get her in his bed, even if it’s just for one night.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
I couldn’t wait to start Naughty Princess, ever since Claire released The Sinful King. With it being a novella, I figured I’d wait to read this one before starting The Sinful King. With being published by 1,001 Dark Nights, we get a novella length love story of Pilar and her footballer.
One of the things that 1,001 Dark Nights mention about their novellas is that they can be read as a standalone. Although I don’t agree with that completely, you can definitely do that with Naughty Princess.
Pilar is the sister of Elias, whose book is The Sinful King. And her other brother Aramiss, we’ll be getting his story soon, which I can’t wait for by the way. Claire did a fantastic job introducing everyone without making things confusing.
I loved that Pilar and Ben already had a little bit of history of sorts. More of Pilar just crushing on him for a long time. It was great to see their friendship/relationship grow. Novellas are tough to write and I think their story just needed a little bit more,
But overall, very enjoyable read and I can’t wait to dive into this series a bit more.
