Heโ€™s a womanizer. Heโ€™s cocky. Heโ€™s not exactly a prince. Only he technically is. Meet your new royal obsession in this addictive novel from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff.

Being rich opens a lot of doors. When youโ€™re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image Iโ€™m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, Iโ€™m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.

Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly Iโ€™m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circlingโ€”and yet itโ€™s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as Iโ€™d expect an American commoner to be.

But Savvyโ€™s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, sheโ€™s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldnโ€™t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky Iโ€™m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince. . . .

Excerpt:

โ€œWhat if I promise to stay in view of the windows the whole time?โ€ I tell them. โ€œIโ€™ll park myself right there in front of that one and you can make sure Iโ€™m safe.โ€
Lucas looks like he wants to argue, but I cut him off before he can even start. โ€œCome on, man. Youโ€™ve got to give me something. I like this woman.โ€
He sighs, but in the endโ€”above the very vocal protests of the very serious Averyโ€”he nods. โ€œIn sight the whole time,โ€ he orders and for a moment I feel like a junior high kid on his first date.
But beggars canโ€™t be choosers and I know, better than most, what a disaster it would be if something happened to the spare three months after the heir disappeared. Wildemar would be in absolute chaos. Thereโ€™s no way Iโ€™d put my country through that, girl or no girl.
โ€œI promise. And if I disappear from sight for more than five seconds, you have my permission to come crashing in after me.โ€
โ€œI think youโ€™re forgetting,โ€ Niall says with a narrow-eyed look, โ€œwe donโ€™t need your permission.โ€
โ€œGeez. Way to be a killjoy.โ€
โ€œYeah, well, someone in this relationship has to be.โ€
โ€œAww, Niall.โ€ I slap his ass with my free hand on my way by. โ€œDonโ€™t you know itโ€™s more fun when everyoneโ€™s having a good time?โ€
Lucas snorts and Avery sounds like heโ€™s strangling on his own tongue. I canโ€™t help grinning as I make my way to Savvyโ€™s front door. Maybe it wonโ€™t take as long to break in my new bodyguard as I was afraid of.
I can hear music through the open windows, Shakiraโ€™s โ€œHips Donโ€™t Lie,โ€ and I canโ€™t help thinking about the way Savvyโ€™s hips looked in her black work pants. Canโ€™t help wondering about what sheโ€™s wearing nowโ€”and whether or not sheโ€™ll let me get another good look at her luscious, heart-shaped ass.
At least sheโ€™s home, I tell myself as I knock. While I knew she wasnโ€™t scheduled to work, I was afraid she might be running errands or something.
Sheโ€™s at the front door in seconds, her big brown eyes wide and inquiring . . . at least until her gaze meets mine. โ€œWhat are you doing here?โ€ she demands.
โ€œWow, way to make a guy feel welcome.โ€ I hold the flowers out to her. โ€œThese are for you.โ€
โ€œThanks, but Iโ€™m allergic.โ€ She starts to close the door in my face, but I get a foot wedged in before she can shut it completely.
โ€œAre you seriously allergic?โ€ I ask, still holding out the flowers. What I really want to ask is Are you seriously going to slam the door in my face?
โ€œNo.โ€ She studies the blooms for a couple of seconds before snatching them out of my hand. Then she really does close the door and Iโ€™m so surprised I donโ€™t do anything to stop her.
Behind me Lucas, Niall and even Avery are full-on laughing now. In fact, Iโ€™m pretty sure the only thing keeping them from absolutely annihilating me is the fact that I am still their prince. That somehow only makes it worse.
Gritting my teeth, I ignore them (and try not to remember the good old days when I could have had them banished to the dungeon) as I lift my hand to knock again. But before my knuckles can even meet the wood, the door flies open again and Savvy is standing there, smiling hugely at me.
โ€œIโ€™m just messing with you,โ€ she says as she pulls me inside. โ€œBut I have to say, your expression was priceless. Is that the first time a womanโ€™s ever shut the door in your face?โ€
I think about. โ€œIโ€™m pretty sure it is.โ€
โ€œI figured. But hey, now you can cross it off your bucket list. Every guy needs to have the experience at least once, donโ€™t you think?โ€
โ€œI think I was good without it ever happening, actually. Definitely didnโ€™t feel like I was missing anything.โ€
โ€œMaybe not,โ€ she concedes. But then she grins and itโ€™s so wicked, so wild, that I can feel it all the way to my bones. โ€œYouโ€™ve got to admit it was funny, though. God, if you could have seen your face.โ€
โ€œIโ€™d rather look at yours.โ€ The cheesy line pops out of nowhere and Iโ€™m not sure which one of us is more shocked. Shit. What the hell is happening to me? Savvy throws me off balance just by breathing, and I donโ€™t have a clue what Iโ€™m supposed to do to stop it.
Or even if I want to stop it. God knows, every time she opens her mouthโ€”or closes a door in my face or spills a glass of champagne on meโ€”it only makes me hotter. Only makes me want her more. Thereโ€™s something about how sheโ€™s always doing the unexpected, always surprising me, always challenging me, that turns me on in a big fucking way.
The little white shorts and tiny red camisole donโ€™t hurt, either.
And I know Iโ€™m not the only one, know the heat isnโ€™t only on my side. Iโ€™ve been with enough women in my life to know when oneโ€™s attracted to me, and Savvy is, even if she doesnโ€™t want to be.
Half of me wants to push on that a little bit, wants to see where itโ€™ll take me if I get in her space right now. But the other half doesnโ€™t want to risk it, not yet. Not with this woman who is a lot of things, but definitely not predictable.
Besides, Iโ€™m pretty sure my time allotment is reaching its upper limits, and I donโ€™t doubt that Avery will come crashing through the front door in about thirty seconds if I donโ€™t get where he can see me.
โ€œDo you want some lemonade?โ€ Savvy asks as she starts walking toward the kitchen.
โ€œIโ€™d love some. But do you mind if I hang out here while you get it?โ€ I take a few steps to the left, making sure to line myself up directly in front of the window.
She turns to me, eyebrows raised, and I figure I might as well own up to the problem. โ€œMy babysitters like to keep an eye on me at all times,โ€ I tell her as I point out the window.
She glances from me to where Niall, Lucas and Avery are standing on the sidewalk in their suits, eyes trained on meโ€”and her.
I expect her to be a little annoyedโ€”most women who arenโ€™t crown chasers usually areโ€”but Savvy just laughs and waves. โ€œIโ€™ll pour five glasses of lemonade,โ€ she tosses over her shoulder as she makes her way to the kitchen. โ€œGet comfortable and Iโ€™ll be right back.โ€
From another woman, the invitation to get comfortable would mean sheโ€™s down to fuck, but Iโ€™m pretty sure Savvy just wants me to take a seat. Moreโ€™s the pity.

About the Author:
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget whereโ€”and sometimes whoโ€”she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short storyโ€”something with a rainbow and a princeโ€”and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten sheโ€™d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew sheโ€™d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.
