A PLAYER FOR A PRINCESS
(Dirty Players Duet, #2)
From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, the game continues…
Zelda Wilder is on the run, this time from the ruthless assassins who’ve decided she knows too much to live.
“Playboy Prince” MacCallum Lockwood Tate isn’t about to let the beautiful player who stole his heart get away—if only he could decide whether he wants to save her or strangle her for her dangerous choices.
After tracking her down to a casino in St. Croix, Cal follows Zee back to Tortola where he intends to keep her safe. One problem: Zelda’s criminal liaisons are two steps ahead of her.
Lives are threatened, and all of the players’ skills are tested in this plot to capture a killer and save a princess.
Cinderella meets Ocean’s Eleven in this CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE DUET featuring secrets, lies, royal high jinks, scams and double-crosses; breathless, swooning lust, cocky princes, dominant alpha future-kings, and crafty courtiers, who are not always what they seem.

Zelda Wilder is a hustler…a grifter…a liar…a cheat. A young woman who willingly breaks the law and lies in order to protect her sister, Ava – the only person she’s ever lived for…the one who she’d willing die for to ensure Ava has the princess life that she deserves. Despite her checkered past and her tendency to be a bit reckless, Zee is more than a product of her circumstances; she’s more than the redneck hick she views herself as and she’s more than the fake personas that she takes on in order to run a con.
It takes a player to recognize another player, regardless of the types of games they play – that’s one reason why, despite Zee’s initial job to seduce Rowan, she falls for Rowan’s younger brother, Cal – a man with his own tarnished past.
Regardless of Cal’s anger over Zee’s duplicity, there are bigger problems to deal with, which means that Cal’s main goal in going after Zelda once she flees in order to keep her sister safe is to find Zee and protect her from those who threaten her, which is not an easy task when she’s still keeping secrets and refuses to reenter Cal’s royal world – a place she feels she doesn’t belong.
Cal’s journey to reclaim Zee’s heart and take her back where she belongs has many obstacles – some of which are due to the shame Zee feels over her part in what happened to Rowan and her sister as well as the fact that her commoner blood has no business mixing with a man so far out of her league. But the greater issues center around unknown variables, and this is why the story becomes quite unpredictable even after Cal locates his princess.
Zee and Cal’s story is a great mix of steam, suspense, and survival. It showcases who Zee truly is down to her core and illustrates unequivocally why she’s nothing like she perceives herself to be. She’s a strong and passionate woman who was dealt a miserable hand and went about changing her luck, and while her choices may not have been the best course to take, she always had her sister’s safety and care in mind, proving that love is what led to her actions.
A Player For A Princess is a captivating read that leads readers down a deliciously decadent path when it comes to Zee and Cal’s relationship, but it also takes us to places that readers won’t see coming because there’s much more at stake for a few of the players in the storyline, which causes dire actions to be taken that will drastically change multiple people’s lives and the results may not be exactly what they had wanted, but they do illustrate the lengths people are willing to go to in order to obtain what they want.

“Tons of laughs, sex, and suspense…THE PRINCE & THE PLAYER had me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, and blushing like crazy!” – Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads
Let the games begin…
Runaway Zelda Wilder will do whatever it takes to secure a better life for her and her sister Ava. Crown Prince Rowan Westringham Tate will do whatever it takes to preserve his small country.
When Zee is blackmailed into helping a vengeful statesman take down Rowan, she never expects she’ll be pulled into a web of lies and international intrigue–much less that she’ll find herself falling for Cal, Rowan’s “playboy” younger brother.
Ava’s no help, as she finds quiet walks in the moonlight discussing poetry and leadership with the brooding future king irresistible. Even more irresistible is kissing his luscious lips.
They’re in over their heads, and the more time passes, the more danger the sisters are in. Shots are fired, and it’s soon clear even a prince might not be able to rescue these players.
