About The Crown Princess
Dependable Crown Princess of Cordova, Gwen, is dreading the day she gives up her life for her country. With the day of coronation looming, Gwen decides to make a bucket list of crazy things she wants to do before the big day. Taking her list, she travels to Las Vegas, a place where no one will question wild behavior and she can be just another normal person on vacation in sin city. Enlisting the help of Alex, a notorious entitled playboy, she finds herself checking off more than just the items on the list. Is she willing to risk it all and take a chance at falling in love? Fiercely independent Alex, the black sheep of his family, was raised in the hotel business. Breaking out on his own, he built a successful Resort and Casino on the strip in Las Vegas. When Gwen asks for Alex’s help on completing her list of ‘bad girl’ activities he readily accepts. Who else knows how to let loose but the Billionaire Playboy himself. But as he starts helping her with the list, he begins to realize that this Princess might be worth trading in his bad boy image.

It took Alex a moment to realize he and Gwen were now alone, and of all places, next to a bed. Against his better judgment, he wandered into the room, moving closer to her. His gaze landed on those beautiful arms and suddenly got an image of them, hot and sweaty, wrapped around his naked body.
Before he could stop himself, he softly ran his finger over her shoulder. Her stunned eyes reflected his own feelings. His gazed dropped to her breasts, moving in the unsteady rhythm of her shallow breathing. Drawn to her, he huddled closer, his eyes now locked on her plump, pink lips.
Bad idea. He stopped within inches, their mouths so close. Slowly, he pressed his forehead to hers. Sighing, he smiled ruefully.
“Well, would you like to watch the rest of the movie or did you want to crawl into bed?” To his ears it sounded like a proposition, whispered so softly, so close to her lips.
Luckily, he could tell she took it at face value.
“I’m very tired, so I think I’ll call it a night.”
Nodding, Alex pulled himself away, turned, and left. Heading back into the movie room, he briefly contemplated his situation. An obvious attraction drew them both toward what seemed like the inevitable. However, it was one he couldn’t act upon without ruining a quality friendship. He picked up the stray glasses and bottles, placing them in the wet bar sink.
Stay in the friend zone. He figured it should be easy, keeping things light and fun. He’d experienced platonic relationships in the past, even with an attraction between them. Although, he admitted, they eventually ended up in bed.
This would be different. It would have to be different. He’d maintain his distance, making sure she knew though attraction presented itself, they’d have to keep it under wraps.
