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.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

1001 Dark Nights is a collection of short stories intended to entertain and leave you yearning for more. Prince Roman met the criteria with flying colours.

Roman wasn’t the kind of prince I imagined him to be and it didn’t take me long to realise he wasn’t looking for a princess to rule his kingdom. While he was next in line for the top job his future was not a fate sealed by his heritage.

In an office and not in a kingdom as I imagined, worked a determined young woman. She was starting afresh with a new company and hell bent on sticking to her rules to not fraternise with the male staff. Her grand ambitions were challenged when she was introduced to Roman. He and his colleagues were there to ensure their human resources policies were solid and wouldn’t leave the company open to litigation. His infatuation with Raven didn’t help with his task nor his hopes to become a partner within his company.

I was in solidarity with Raven and her determination to put her career first but at the same time nodded knowingly at the temptation she faced in Roman. I may have even sent messages to her along the lines of encouraging her to throw caution to the wind. The way she attempted to humanise Roman cracked me up and it wasn’t a surprise no amount of strategies could shield her from his hotness.

With a limited time frame to tell the story, I was left hoping for more. There were a few times I wished a little more time was spent with Raven’s friend as well as a few more conversations with Roman and the senior partners in his firm. The story flowed without the extra details I craved but I thought it important to include this to explain why I didn’t reach for the additional half star.

The twist at the end of the story floored me, how anyone could instigate such a situation astounded me. The way it panned out though made me a happy reader and I can’t wait to hopefully get more cameos of Roman and Raven in future books!

About CD Reiss:

C.D. Reiss is a USA Today 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 write novels.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” 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.
