From NY Times Bestselling author, CD Reiss, love comes in the most ordinary and most forbidden places.

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 hands

Where to start... This Prince Roman by C.D. Reiss is a special nugget of insight to so much... Reiss' Talent, Today's Times and the platform of 1001 Dark Nights...All wrapped up in a tale so well done... it could be used as a guide for future writers.

Writing shorter stories can be tricky...will there be enough description of the characters to capture our interest and understand their motivations... Will there be enough substance throughout

CD Reiss returns to the world of hackers and corporate boardroom games with her 1001 Dark Nights novella, Prince Roman. It’s an engaging, smart, and sexy read that’s sure to please fans of the series and new fans alike. I loved it!

Prince Roman is a fabulous and very, very SEXY, '1,001 Dark Nights,' standalone novella that offers a glimpse into the latest character world of CD Reiss. A short read that totally satisfied my craving for a light, straightforward romance where intelligent, unlucky in love lady, meets handsome, protective man who completely sweeps her off of her feet and carried me along for the swoonsome ride.

Raven, the female protagonist, has a new job and rules to ensure she keeps her job, remaini

Prince Roman was a quick, sexy, and entertaining read that I finished in one sitting. Though I'm as far from techie as possible and at times I thought the gamer details would lose me, the author managed to pull it off and keep me totally invested in the story. Admittedly, they weren't my favorite parts, simply because a lot of it flew right over my head, but they didn't bore me either.

I am a serious "fangirl" and enjoy the layers of meaning, wit and world-building on display in all of her works.

It's a thrill to read Reiss's heroines. They're smartass, mouthy, confident and bold . They know what they want and go grab it. I loved Raven Crosby. She was in King Of Code , with Taylor Harden. She's a ball buster and is very clear about her goals. Till she joins Neuronet and meets Roman Bianchi. He's a Man of power and powerful men are Raven's thing.

Sexy, smart, and sophisticated!! That’s right my fellow book lovers, CD Reiss is back at it again as she delivers a novella that hits every writing element that we are so fond of. In Prince Roman, CD introduces readers to a fun, smart and playful office romance that will be sure to heat up your e-readers.


In this male dominated world of Silicon Valley, Raven Crosby is making a name for herself and is practically a unicorn and the last thing

I am a big fan of CD Reiss’s writing, and although I may not have loved Prince Roman as much as some of her other work, I still found this novella to be quite enjoyable—a solid 3.5 stars for me.

Raven is a programmer/hacker/gamer geek who accepts a position as VP of Human Resources at a successful company. While she’s perfectly competent, a job in HR seems to be a less than exciting fit for her as far as I’m concerned. However, her main goal in life is to have job security, and she is de

This was so good. I love CD writing style. She has a way of creating this perfect visual as she tells the story. Since she has now written two books from my old home, I wonder if she came up here and I missed her.

I highly recommend reading this book if you enjoyed King of Code by C.D. Reiss. You could read it before or after.

Raven the lead was awesome. Her character read like a reverse male. She was all woman, but she was bold, smart and driven. And she liked to fu*ck at work. But she was soft on the inside too. I was

This is a 1001 Dark Nights story from CD Reiss and I guess this could be summed up as being an office romance - a very sexy one though....

Raven has just started a new job, a job she is very excited about. She has one rule for herself though, don't sleep with anyone she works with. Too bad that she meets a hottie on her first day then....

A Sassy Little Office Romance.......a stand-alone novella that felt every bit like a full book. It was a perfect blend of cat and mouse and hot and sexy. CD Reiss continues her savviness of the tech world by bringing Raven Crosby from King of Code to a new company where she meets Roman Bianchi, outside counsel to the new company.

These two meet and it’s on. There is a no fraternization policy in place but these two have an undeniable chemistry. And when they do cross those lines, it’s definitely

Raven is a top-notch technology guru and leaves her prestigious job to start over, make a name for herself, and NOT get involved with hot behind the door activities with any coworkers!! Meeting Roman though, of course, leaves her no fraternitizing rule up in the air...can she refrain?

GAH!!! I’m so incredibly selfish when it comes to this author! I want ALL THINGS CD Reiss…ALL THE FREAKING TIME! No matter the genre, she KILLS the game each and every time! With PRINCE ROMAN, her latest standalone novella that takes place in her KING OF CODE World, we get a taste of the lighter, more romantic side of Ms. Reiss, but it’s no less captivating and smart as her other romances, that’s for sure.

If you’ve read KING OF CODE, you might find our heroine in PRINCE ROMAN a little familiar.

No matter how professional they appear at work, they live for the weekends, and the day that they are no longer working together. Roman's contract expires in three weeks.

This woman is just amazing. She hits the mark every single time. The whole IT (or whatever word you want to use) was completely lost on me, but it didn’t matter because Raven and Roman were so damn likeable, and sexy, and humorous, and just everything.

Prince Roman is the newest work from author C.D. Reiss and is novella number 19 in the 2017 1,001 Dark Nights lineup.  I always know I can count on Ms. Reiss for a sexy, fun, flirty story with a kick ass heroine and boy, oh, boy this was no exception. 

As in the real world, workplace romance can be very very tricky.  Never has this been more true than in the situation we find Raven and Roman. You see, Raven is the woman in charge and Roman works for her.  That, I must say, was the aspect I most e

The sex scenes along with her spellbinding words make a phenomenal combination that is truly unique. I really can't think of another author that can create such a masterpiece in the erotic book world.

Christine (C.D.) Reiss is a maestra of story telling. I love how she delves into the subject matter. You can tell she does her research because there are times I have no idea what's going on because all of the language or most of it goes over my head. But I have to give her props for it and do some research of my own so I can figure out what was said and what it meant. Christine has this way of meshing fiction and reality that's blends the lines.

Short stories are tough. You have to pack a lot into a short amount of space and still tell a story that is interesting and engages the reader. I tend to be very picky about the ones I will read as i find a lot of them fall short. The 1001 Dark Nights series of books, however, are quickly becoming favorites of mine as they tend to be well-written and excellent shorter stories.
