The Sinful King, a new, sexy, 100% stand-alone novel
by New York Times bestselling author, Claire Contreras, is LIVE!
If you had any ties to Marbella, it was impossible for you not to have heard the stories about Prince Elias and his debauchery.
Every summer he arrived with his security detail and friends in tow and rented out a row of cottages near the water.
Cottages that belonged to my family.
Each of those summers, my parents sent me away – summer camp and later, boarding school. Anything to keep me away from the royals and their partying.
I hadn’t been home in years, but when I finally come back for the summer, I see that not much has changed. Like all the summers I’d been gone, Prince Elias is back, but this time with an incognito security detail and no friends. This time, there is no partying, no noise, no crowds. No reason at all to even think he was there.
I’m given strict orders not to talk to him, not to even look in his direction, but he makes this an impossible task. I may be doing everything in my power to stay away from him, but there is no one in the world who can say no to the future King of France.
„Love is a game. You need to play to your heart’s advantage.”
This book is a dream come true for all lovers of modern royalty! I can’t resist love stories about princes and commoners and Claire Contreras brought to life one of my childhood fantasies. The Sinful King is an enchanting story of epic love and it utterly and completely swept me off my feet. With the perfect amount of tension, sweet moments, angst and sinfully hot scenes Claire made me unable to stop reading this book even for a second!
Even though this story has all the elements of a classic fairytale with the prince making the common girl fall in love with him, it’s perfectly realistic with imperfect and fascinating characters. I absolutely adored Adeline, she’s an amazing heroine. She gives as much as she gets, not caring about the status of the person that treats her poorly. She knows her worth and doesn’t settle for anything less. She’s smart, level-headed, kind, humble and instantly loveable. Elias is honorable, romantic, and so incredibly sexy! Everything from his words to his actions proves that he’s a real good man, although sometimes his mood got the better of him. But even when he does something the reader isn’t happy with, it’s easy to understand his choices. He knows what his obligations are and he tries to fulfil the expectations of the nation.
The relationship between Adeline and Elias is developed perfectly, spanning the time and resulting in an authenticity between them that instantly feels more than simple lust. I could feel their undeniable chemistry, the longing, their passion and even sorrow. Their intense romance made my heart flutter and I needed them to be together just as much as they needed it themselves.
Apart from them, I really enjoyed all the secondary characters. I loved the cheeky prince Aramis, young Princess Pilar and even the Queen. I adored Adeline’s relationship with her friends, Etienne and Joslyn. I just loved the dynamic between Elias and his friend/bodyguard/secretary Pierre. All of these characters are well developed and I’d love to read their stories.
The Sinful King is a sexy, heart-pounding romance. This unputdownable and unforgettable tale is amazingly written and although it’s a modern fairytale, it’s authentic and packed with amazing twists that will leave you breathless. In addition to the epic love story, good drama and flawless prose, Claire gives us wonderful characters that prove that all’s fair in love and war. This book is addictive, passionate, and absolutely fantastic!

“I am.” I swallowed. “I don’t normally do this.”
“That’s okay.” His lips formed a slow smile. “We’ll take it slow.”
“Should . . . should I take my mask off?” I whispered.
“Do you want to?”
“Are you going to take yours off?”
“Do you want me to?”
“Yes.” I let out a shuddering breath. “I think we should.”
He didn’t hesitate. His mask came off immediately, and even though I couldn’t fully see him, I could fully appreciate his gorgeousness. He must have been a model. Or an actor. Or something. My rapid thought process reminded me of something.
“I don’t even know your name.”
“I don’t know yours.”
“That doesn’t bother you?” I felt my eyebrows pull in.
“You’re leaving to another country tomorrow. Does it make a difference? Will it stop you from doing this?”
“No.” I pulled the mask over my head and tossed it aside.
“You’re beautiful.” The tips of his fingers caressed my cheek, my lips.
“You can barely see me.”
“And yet, I know you’re beautiful.” He brought his lips to mine then and kissed me.
My breath hitched. I brought my hands up to his face and kissed him back, parting my lips to make way for his tongue to dance with mine as my entire body came alive. His kiss was electric, his touch an awakening as his hands made their way down my body, unzipping my dress and letting it pool at our feet. He touched my naked breasts and explored my hips, stopping at the elastic of my panties. I undid his bow-tie and unbuttoned the white dress shirt he had on, my fingers fumbling on a few. When I reached his belt and undid it, I paused, breathing heavily as he broke the kiss.
“You okay?” The tip of his nose touched mine.
“Better than okay.”
“We can stop any time you’d like.”
“I don’t want to stop.” I continued working on his pants until they met the same fate as my dress, and then we stood there, chest to chest, in the middle of a darkened room, with only our underwear on. “Do you want to stop?”
