About PRINCE ROMAN:
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.

I totally enjoyed listening to King of Code on audio so the promise of a side story from that book made me a little giddy. I do so enjoy these bite sized stories offered in the 1,001 Nights collections. If you haven’t read either King of Code or the 1,001 Nights novella’s, you need to go take a look. There is a plethora of top notch authors that write these and are of the highest standard.
Whilst Taylor Harden makes an appearance in Prince Roman, he is not the focus of the story. No, CD Reiss brings us the assistant and her search for love in all the wrong places. Raven can’t help herself when it comes to messing around with men at work, an occupational hazard as she works in a predominantly man’s world. I love that the author centred this story around women’s employment rights, it seemed to suit the background of Raven Crosby perfectly. When she meets Roman Bianchi, it sends her into a tail spin and how she keeps her cool is perfect.
But, as we all know – you can’t keep a good man down and that’s exactly what Roman Bianchi is. A good man (and a little bit dirty), hungry for Partner position within his company yet not so hungry that he leaves Raven out to dry. Their story unfolds at a quick pace (as it’s a short) and it’s difficult to make these things work. CD Reiss makes every scene count, every sentence matter, every word earns its place in this cleverly crafted novella. I think my favourite scene is their first lunch (I won’t spoil) but it set up the rest of the story for me, a little glint of what was to come and right enough, their relationship snowballed from that point.
I thoroughly enjoyed this offering from an author I hold in high esteem. King of Code was a challenge that she executed with perfection – Prince Roman is a little icing on the cake. Because this book is so short, and I craved more I’d normally down star my rating, but I simply can’t. Prince Roman is sublime and fast-paced and yes, not enough for me, but I can’t fault the writing nor the storyline, so I must give it the full star treatment.
Pick up this book, find some more 1,001 Nights novellas, they are a treat in themselves from your favourite authors. Recommended reading, especially if you like this author.
If Raven Crosby hadn’t picked up some hacking tips from QI4, I’d eat my shoe.
She’d left as they were growing. Kept her stock options. That never happens. She was also still friendly with Taylor Harden, the hacker brain behind QI4’s quantum system.
I figured they’d parted on good terms. Maybe with something hanging over Taylor’s head.
My team ended up with a few folders on her. I told myself I was a lawyer. Collecting data on people was what I did for a living.
But this was different.
A week in, I was obsessed with her ebony hair and eyes. Lashes drawn on with black Sharpie. Her voice was hypnotic in meetings, and was only heard after long stretches of listening. The night before, she’d tipped her hand, showing me that she’d peeled the curtain back to get intel on me. I didn’t feel violated as much as vindicated. The attraction was mutual. She wouldn’t have done it for any other reason.
“I’ll be there at eight,” I said to my sister, Teagan. We had a dinner planned half an hour before, but I didn’t want to go. It wasn’t the rain that pounded on the windows. It wasn’t my sister. Teagan was fine, but the office was empty and Raven was right across the hall, working in the glow of a desk lamp.
“You better be,” she said. “I’m starving and I need to get drunk.”
“Get a head start at the bar.”
“I’m not going to sit at the end of the bar by myself with a drink. Do you even know what it’s like out there for a girl?”
I didn’t know firsthand, obviously, but I knew enough from her. Teagan was a career gamer and game designer. One of the best. She had a sweet, harmless face that made her approachable to even the most beta of betas. Regardless, even the betas tried to compete with her once they knew what she did. I was exhausted on her behalf.
Across the hall, Raven stood and clicked off her desk lamp.
“Leaving now,” I said, cutting the call. I grabbed my things and headed out, timing it perfectly so we met in the hall.
“Hi,” I said.
She nodded and gave me a non-committal smile. We spoke often, but never a word that didn’t have to do with the human resources software implementation and how it would protect Neuronet from liability.
“It’s raining,” I said. “You taking the elevator to the parking lot?”
The executive lot was underground, on the other side of campus. If you wanted to get there underground, without crossing the courtyard and getting rained on, you had to take the elevator.
“Yes.” She started down the hall and I followed.
“I’ll walk you.”

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.
