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.

In the prologue we see how 18 year old Adeline meets a mysterious stranger at a summer party in her hometown of Marbella, Spain.
Insta attraction ... which leads to her losing her virginity to him.
Him being - as she finds out in the papers the next morning - the future King of France!
Whoopsie. ☺
Fast forward five years and Adeline is back in town after a tiny little scandal chased her out of London.
And the Prince is back too ... but he might be announcing his engagement any day now!


What will happen to Adeline & Elias?
Will there be a HEA?

I love to read one of those fairy tale / far from reality kind of stories every once in a while.
Who didn't want to be a princess as a little girl - or boy? ☺

The Prince of France. LOL.
It was definitely a cute romance.
The cover is super hot and I love the colors!
And our Prince is very yummy too! And so sweet and grumpy and adorable!
Addie is great too!
And the friends and siblings too!

It was a really adorable little fairy tale with lots of funny and sexy moments. And some serious royal moments.
The whole Spain-France thing was a bit weird. It didn't make sense. Why didn't the royal family summer in the south of France instead of Marbella??? And you can't drive to Versailles from Marbella in two hours. Or from Paris to the beach in Spain in two hours.
Maybe Claire should've stayed in France with her story. The Spain part didn't make any sense and it didn't have a thing to do with the story!
BUT - I really liked the book. When you overlook a few little details and just enjoy reading for a few hours - you'll get a great little fairy tale!

THE SINFUL KING was an adorable french royal fairy tale love story! ☺ Run to your nearest amazon for your own ELIAS - this one is MINE!!!


“You’re nervous.”

“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?”
