She ran.
She lied to me. She almost killed my brother.
She stole her way into my heart… and then she ran.
Zelda Wilder’s got another thing coming if she thinks I won’t go after her.
She is mine, and I will bring her back… to justice, and to my bed.

A Player for a Prince is Zelda and Cal’s story. In book one, I was enamored by MacCallum Lockwood Tate and was so happy to get his POV in this book. The ending of book one was straight up crazy. All kinds of stuff went down and it forced Zelda to go on the run. She’s trusting the prince to take care of her sister, and she’s trying to stay away from anyone who could cause harm to them.
I might not be Cinderella, but I am a survivor.

Zee is doing what she feels is best. S

A sexy, sizzling fast paced romance that was high with adrenaline, suspense, action and passion!!! In true Tia Louise fashion, she didn’t hold back as she delivers one sexy literary tale of what I like to call Cinderella meets Ocean’s Eleven/The Italian Job in the final conclusion of A Player for a Princess.

We were left in suspense at the end of The Prince & The Player, not knowing if Zelda was okay or if she was going to be a pawn in someone's cruel, cruel game. Well, this book picks up where we left off, and the action is right there from the beginning! Not only that, but the twists and turns knocked the air out of me... Here I thought it was going to take a bit for them to build up, but no, I. Was. Wrong!!

Fantastic world of badass Cinderella. Beautiful love story and suspenseful royal family drama. It's all the way Zelda and Cal story, and guess what! We get another part!

Review @ Midnight Romance

The continuation of The Prince & The Player, Zelda "Zee" Wilder left her younger sister, Ava in the hands of Monagasco's future king, Rowan. Zee also sacrificed her love for MacCallum "Cal" Lockwood Tate, the playboy younger prince. Now, she's on the run but not for long.
I only know as much as I don’t deserve him, he’s my prince. I gave my heart to him, and no matter how far I run, I’ll never stop wanting him.

A Player for A Princess takes a fairy tale romance and puts a unique twist on it. Tia Louise added a lot more suspense in this part of Zee and Cal's story and I really liked how she handled everything. While there was still a heavy dose of romance and sweet times, the intrigue that was throughout most of the story is what had me on the edge of my seat and unable to put this book down.

The story picks up where The Prince and The Player left off and went even further than I thought it would. When

PLEASE NOTE This is not a standalone! Do not dive into the waters of A Player For a Princess as this picks up at the heart pounding cliffhanger! I admit to not being sure what to expect with this read as I was in complete awe with book 1 and the double romance that took place in a realm of royalty and betrayal. Just 2 chapters into this read I was blow away by the progression of the tale!

I enjoyed book one of the Dirty Players series. I loved getting to know the characters. I wasn't sure how much I would like this story concentrating primarily on Zelda and Cal...I couldn't have predicted what Tia had in store.

A Player for a Princess is sizzling with energy and tension. I couldn't read fast enough as the mystery and suspense unfolded. Cal and Zelda's connection is steaming hot and through every test it grew stronger. This second book was much more than I bargained for and I LOVED

When danger escalates & attempts are made on their lives, Zelda decides to flee the country. She wants to protect her sister & she decides to disappear to stay off the radar of the bad guys.

Just plain enjoyable & entertaining. Whether you are a royal lover or not, you're sure to be enchanted by this dual riveting, suspenseful romance! It's hard to gloss over all the things I adored because everything was so multi-layered. I really loved the characters. They felt so real and I felt like I was right in the middle of everything with them. I road that rollercoaster of emotions from beginning to end and I'm exhausted! But, in a good way.

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

In the sequel of The Prince & The Player, we find Zelda again running away from those who want to hurt her. While trying to outrun the danger, Zelda finds herself in her old habits with Seth though it doesn't feel the same when your life is constantly in danger.

But Zee is still the same outspoken and intelligent girl we first met if only a little more aware of her surroundings and a little bit more paranoid.

Audiobook: Narrator – Natalie Duke & Gary Furlong

Excellent narration! I never struggled with understanding any of the accents and both male and female voices were exceptional. These narrators really added to this story in a way that simply reading it would not. So much depth and emotion contained within! I need more!

This picks up right where book 1 ends for Zelda and Cal. While things took a darker turn towards the end of The Prince & The Player, this time around, things go very dark.

The Prince & The Player and A Player for a Princess (Dirty Players Duet) by Tia Louise

Must be read together.
4.5 Stars

I am going to review both The Prince & The Player and A Player for a Princess by Tia Louise together since they make up the Dirty Players Duet, and can not be read without each other. Let me tell you, this duet gave me so much more than I bargained for! Back in the 90s, I was into the mystery/lawyer, exciting crime books a la John Grisham's The Firm. I realized reading t
One of my all time FAVORITES from the amazing Tia Louise! Zee and Cal's journey broke me into a million pieces and carefully put me back together again! The excitement, the passion, the tragedy, the heartbreak, it was just all-encompassing. I was completely and utterly swept off my feet with this beauty of a fairytale.

When you read romance you’re pretty much know what you’re going to get. Two people who fall in love and travel a somewhat bumpy but ultimately find their HEA. If you’re lucky you get laughs and angst along the way but the endings are never really a surprise. You know it’s going to end in happy smiles and warm and fuzzy feelings.

That is, unless you’re reading a book by Tia Louise. In that case you just won’t know what will happen until you’ve finished the last word on the last page. Tia Louise m

Across the ocean to the beautiful beaches of Tortola to remote islands—A Player for a Princess takes the reader across a myriad of beautiful, scary, and amazing places—both physically and emotionally.

I absolutely adore this series and especially this book! It’s filled with emotions—from laughter, to misery, from love to heartache. Tia Louise’s beautiful writing draws you in from page one, or book one, and it won’t let you go. I couldn’t wait, after finishing book one, to get my greedy hands on

Tia Louise does not disappoint. She grabs a hold of your emotions and refuses to let go while you drown in her beautiful words.

This series is something that I didn't know I needed, but it's EVERYTHING. Literally. Everything. There's so much love, angst, and suspense that you'll have no other option than to read it in one sitting.

Don't miss this series. I promise that you won't be disappointed.

As a fan of movies, this book's tagline read Ocean's Eleven meets Cinderella and I was captivated as if I had to rank my order of favorite fairy tales - Cinderella is always at the top and then the title captured me too as I love anything with a Royalty twist. The novel starts with Zelda and her partner in crime discovering another one of their companions Helen murdered and then we read as they hightail it to the Caribbean and stake out one last gig at the local casino.

WOW! What a rush this book was. Zee has ran away from her handsome prince and is trying to tie up some loose ends so she will feel more worthy of Cal's love. But Cal has other ideas and wants to bring home his "princess".

They reunite for a short time until the evil Seth captures Zee! But Cal uses all of his money and power and does not give up until he has her back. But the struggles Zee goes through in captivity are so very heartbreaking.

This book is such a thrill ride. Its hard to review wit

OMG!!!! Just.....O....M.....G!!!!! (Coming soon!!!)

ZELDA!! Zee, is still running, and oh my god does trouble go out of it's way for her.

MacCallum!! Cal, is hot on her trail...and what happens will have you swooning for the player!

But when Zee is taken, you will cry, cringe, hope and pray....and that may not be enough.........

Of course, Ava and Rowan are stronger than ever and soon to be King and Queen!! At least one sister is getting her fairytale beginning!!


*4.5 stars!

So much happens in this one. This one is filled with suspense and nothing like the feel of the first book which is mostly that "lovey-dovey" feel for a lot of the book. This one is a polar opposite (until the end of course). Like I mentioned in the first book, it's told from Zelda and Rowan's POV's touching on 2 separate couples. This one only follows Zelda and Cal.
I'm curious to see if the author decides to go down the path with the other characters in this series. I loved this duet
