I’m less than a week away from being crowned king.

To celebrate my last days of freedom, I’m indulging in all kinds of hedonistic activities —including attending the coveted Virgin Auction.

When I see Izzy on stage, I forget where I am. She’s gorgeous. I must have her. At any cost.

Even if only for three weeks.

Even if it can only ever be temporary.

And especially because it’s the last time I can do something for myself and not what’s best for my country.

I’m bound by duty and honor, but for the next few weeks I get to have my American cake and eat her too… one decadent bite at a time.

Super Steamy Romance and Enjoyable Story

I was a bit surprised that I like this as much as I did. Generally books with so many steamy scenes don’t have much of a story. However I liked this one, despite not really understanding her motives all the time. I liked the characters and the fact that the he ...more

I have to admit that I tend to shy away from stories about virginal females learning at the hands of an experienced man. That said, from time to time I come across one that I actually really enjoy.

I read the first book in this series (both total standalone) Auctioned to the Greek Billionaire and that was a pretty good book, so that was what I was expecting. Yes, I enjoyed this story, but I knocked down a star because there needed to be some editing done to this book.

This story is a good stor ...more

Carmen Falcone does it again. Sold to the King. A Very fast pace, steamy HOT book. It was very refreshing to read about an interracial couple.

By Jodi January 30, 2020

This was my first virgin auction book. I found the story very entertaining. I enjoyed both the heroine and hero, and how they each had their own side story aside from the actual auction. Each character was fleshed out nicely for a short, quick read. Not only did the story sizzle, but there was a spl ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Carmen Falcone

Carmen Falcone learned at an early age that fantasizing about fictional characters beat doing math homework any day. Brazilian by birth and traveler by nature, she moved to Central Texas after college and met her broody Swiss husband, living proof that opposites attract. She found in writing her deepest passion and the best excuse to avoid the healthy lifestyle everyone keeps talking about. When she is not lost in the world of romance, she enjoys spending time with her two kids, being walked by her three crazy pugs, reading, catching up with friends, and chatting with random people in the checkout line.
