Prince Roman By CD Reiss From NY Times Bestselling author, CD Reiss, love comes in the most ordinary and most forbidden places. Rules for my new job: 1) Do not have sex with a man in the office (again). 2) Do not break Rule #1 I’m playing it cool, clean, and professional… until I meet Roman Bianchi. He’s not an insecure nerd or an ego-hole like the other kings of Silicon Valley. He’s charming and handsome. He’s fun, funny, and smart. He’s also in the office across the hall. Two broken rules waiting to happen. I can’t lose this job over some guy. But Roman’s not just some guy. Under that suit and cocky smile, he’s a prince.
About CD Reiss
CD Reiss is an Audie Award winner and New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up, she's at the well, hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to try her hand at books. She's been nicknamed the “Shakespeare of Smut,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she's some sort of braggart who's too good to chop a cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine. You can find more information on her at https://cdreiss.com.

Acknowledgments from the Author
I am so grateful to be a part of the 1,001 Dark Nights family. Laurelin Paige introduced me to Liz Berry and MJ Rose. It was an honor then, and it’s an honor now. Laurelin and Lauren Blakely are my mentors and sisters. I owe them LITERALLY EVERYTHING. Luckily, they’ll take repayment in friendship. I’m a changeling. Liz and her team put up with a lot of crap from me as I changed this story, the title, and the blurb 1,001 times before I got the entire series the way I wanted it. She, Kasi, and Kimberly edited it exactly the way I liked, making it better without changing it into something different. I am always in my family’s debt. I work hard for them and I couldn’t do it without them. And Liz, again. I’m forgetting ten people, but I have to thank Liz three times over for her flexibility as I handed her books, then took them away. You’re a good soul and a true patron of this art form.

One Thousand and One Dark Nights
Once upon a time, in the future… I was a student fascinated with stories and learning. I studied philosophy, poetry, history, the occult, and the art and science of love and magic. I had a vast library at my father’s home and collected thousands of volumes of fantastic tales. I learned all about ancient races and bygone times. About myths and legends and dreams of all people through the millennium. And the more I read the stronger my imagination grew until I discovered that I was able to travel into the stories... to actually become part of them. I wish I could say that I listened to my teacher and respected my gift, as I ought to have. If I had, I would not be telling you this tale now. But I was foolhardy and confused, showing off
with bravery. One afternoon, curious about the myth of the Arabian Nights, I traveled back to ancient Persia to see for myself if it was true that every day Shahryar (Persian: ﺷﮭﺮﯾﺎر, “king”) married a new virgin, and then sent yesterday's wife to be beheaded. It was written and I had read, that by the time he met Scheherazade, the vizier's daughter, he’d killed one thousand women. Something went wrong with my efforts. I arrived in the midst of the story and somehow exchanged places with Scheherazade – a phenomena that had never occurred before and that still to this day, I cannot explain. Now I am trapped in that ancient past. I have taken on Scheherazade’s life and the only way I can protect myself and stay alive is to do what she did to protect herself and stay alive. Every night the King calls for me and listens as I
spin tales. And when the evening ends and dawn breaks, I stop at a point that leaves him breathless and yearning for more. And so the King spares my life for one more day, so that he might hear the rest of my dark tale. As soon as I finish a story... I begin a new one... like the one that you, dear reader, have before you now.
RAVEN I never thought about him naked. Probably because during our affair—which went on for about a year and ended with a whimper seven months earlier—I never saw Taylor fully undressed. We usually met in some dark corner of the office and did little more than expose the relevant body parts. But the other reason I never thought about him naked was because it just wasn’t like that. Brilliant, handsome, ambitious, rich, and about to get much richer, he was a real catch if you could ignore the fact that he was a complete ego-hole. I couldn’t ignore it and I couldn’t change it. So I’d used him like an in-office vibrator until he came back from a trip with a new girlfriend. I couldn’t find a hard feeling about it anywhere. “Is it money?” he asked, hands folded on his desk. “I promised you a bonus in December. Do you n...
