Peek Inside Seducing the Princess

Protecting a princess is not what former marine Gordon Waybrook signed up for. But instead of the spoiled, regal little creature he expects, Isabelle VanGuard is a fiery woman who’s been denied what she needs for too long. The temptation to be the man who unlocks her sexual side can’t disguise reality, though. Isabelle is a princess, and tattooed bodyguard isn’t the Prince Charming her country expects...even if he’s exactly what she needs.

He'll give her exactly what she needs...

Protecting a princess is not what former marine Gordon Waybrook signed up for when he joined the Shillings Agency. But instead of the spoiled, regal little creature he expects, Isabelle VanGuard is a fiery, sexy-as-hell woman who’s been denied what she needs for too long. And he’s just the man to break through her frozen public facade and give it to her.

When she’s with Gordon, all Isabelle can think about is pleasure. Their blistering chemistry is immediate and intense, but volatile. In fact, the only thing they agree on is that their one night together is just that—one night. Even after it becomes more. But tempers and temptation can’t disguise reality. Isabelle is a princess, and a hot, hard, tattooed bodyguard isn’t the Prince Charming her country expects...even if he’s exactly what she needs.

Each book in the Shillings Agency series is a stand-alone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

"Everything just worked; the chemistry, the fight, the fun and the emotion, and whilst it held no huge surprises, it was a hot, romantic journey with slight air of one of my all-time favourite films, Coming to America. Seducing the Princess seduced this commoner." --Nicola, Goodreads

"...let me just say Gordon not only seduces the Princess but will definitely have readers begging him for more. Trust me, you might find yourself saying “Please, Gordon” after reading this book. ;)" --Michelle, Goodreads

"Gordon Waybrook and Seducing the Princess are definitely in my top five favorite reads from Diane Alberts." --Read Your Writes Book Reviews

One word. One slight movement toward him, and she'd be his. He'd make her come so many times she'd forget what it felt like to be a proper princess.

I make no bones that I am a bugger to please when it comes to the royalty trope, but Jen McLaughlin/Diane Alberts has done what she does best and her take on it was pretty near perfect.

Ever read a book where you have to choose between sleep and continuing to read?

I dived into Seducing the Princess not knowing what to expect. Is it a modern day fairytale?

I enjoyed the book for what it is; a piece of escapism. It's an entertaining story that takes you away from the realities of real life for a few hours.

I'm immediately drawn to the very likable Gordon Waybroo ...more

This book has everything that makes Brazen romances great. A strong, caring, and supportive leading man; a self assured, powerful, and passionate leading lady, and sexy, sexy, sexy, sex.

She was a princess, and he'd never be good enough for a woman like her.
She'd expect castles, horses, world tours, and jewels.

I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would. Isabelle and Gordon were really good characters, and while the plot was a quasi cheesy fairytale premise, it really worked.
