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 hot, hard, and tattooed bodyguard isn’t the Prince Charming her country expects…even if he’s exactly what she needs.
"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.
3.5 "You might own a fucking country, but tonight... I own you." Stars.

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. Everything just worked; the chemistry, the fight, the fun and the emotion, and whilst it held no huge surprises... ...more

Seducing the Princess by Diane Alberts reminded me of a modern day version of Cinderella, The Bodyguard and Coming to America. Well in the case for Diane Alberts, she made her book a lot more sexy, hot, steamy and titillati... ...more

This steamy romance, third in the Shillings Agency series but easily read as a standalone, is the story of Gordon and Isabelle.

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.

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.
