I love royal romances and after reading 'The Sinful King' earlier this year, I knew I wanted more from this royal family. The Naughty Princess is a novella featuring King Elias's sister, Princess Pilar.

Pilar is a good girl and never gives her royal family any trouble, unlike one of her brothers. She keeps under the radar as much as she can and doesn't get into anything too exciting. Until she goes out with Benjamin Drake. Ben is someone she's crushed on for a while, as a famous foot

-I couldn’t remember the last time a woman had made me feel this way.


Princess Pilar has devoted her life to the monarchy and serving the crown. She learned long ago she couldn’t shake her responsibility or her title. She was sheltered, innocent, and never the sibling to be caught up in scandal. She was prim, proper, and lived under a microscope. She had everything she could ever want, except freedom. She rarely let herself go, and was careful to never step out o

Princess Pilar gets her happy ending and Benjamin Drake is her perfect prince! I love when an author I really love gets to give us an amazing short story with still all the elements a romance lover enjoys in a full-length novel. The Naughty Princess did not fail, I loved how Claire developed the love story, the chemistry, the feels and even some surprises! I loved Pilar and Ben together and they surely were sweet and naughty! I also really enjoyed catching up with the

This is a fun novella in the Naughty Royals series featuring Pilar, Elias and Aramis’ sister. We first met her in book one.

Pilar could be called the luckiest of the three royals. Her older brother is the King, her younger brother finds trouble everywhere he goes but she has managed to fly under the radar so far. She doesn’t really do anything that brings unwanted attention on their family and she enjoys a great social life of sorts - nothing like her brothers.

Pilar knows there is a lot more fun

A Novella that was packed with enough info to know what was going on. Princess Pilar wants to have fun and not be in the media. It's not fair that her brothers can come and go and do as they please. So she packs her things and goes to Ibizi, where her parents never wanted her to go.
Benjamin Drake is a football player and has the reputation of a ladies man. Never with the same woman twice and seems to have 1 that is like a friend with benefits. He has known Pilar's family for years and always wan

The Naughty Princess is a novella from the The Naughty Royals series. We met Princess Pilar in book 1, The Sinful King. I liked her from the moment we met her in that one and was eagerly anticipating her story. It’s a short and sweet novella between a royal and a soccer player. Pilar and Ben have met in the past and always had a crush on each other. They both happen to be in Ibiza at the same time. Pilar is a good girl, always doing the right thing and wants to let her hair down and let loose fr ...more

Short, sweet and steamy. Absolutely loved them, and I got a full story in a novella sized book.

Cannot wait for Aramis’s story.

Royally Awesome Novella. Decadent and sexy plot and multi dimensional characters, I couldn’t get enough.
I highly recommend this one.
A sexy little novella about a princess who always keeps her nose clean and her vacation turned romantic getaway with a sexy professional athlete. This might be a novella but it packs all the punch of a full-length story, giving you the full run of hope and heartache. I love a good royal romance and this definitely befalls in that category.

Princess Pilar just wants a little time off from her scheduled & proper life. Wanting to make her own decisions like her brother, King Elias, she is ready to spread her wings.

Watch this feisty princess and fútball star find their own paths to each other. A great short story but with all the heat and scandal needed f ...more

„Sometimes, love chooses for you.”

A short novella that packs all the feels! I met Princess Pilar while reading The Sinful King and I immediately wanted to know the story of this polite, demure girl. And when sexy Benjamin Drake entered the stage? I was bursting from excitement!

Pilar knows what is expected of her and what her responsibilities are. Her life revolves around the Crown. On paper she’s the perfect princess - always nice and obliging, avoiding scandals and the spotlight. Benjamin D

Who would have thought that Pilar had it in her?

I loved her character in Sinful King and she was the proper Princess- quiet, beautiful and loyal.
Benjamin is sexy and famous and you can feel the attraction between him and Princess Pilar- it is sizzling and when they give in to temptation ... it is scorching hot!!!
In this novella, Claire Contreras has delivered a story that proves that love always wins.
It was steamy, addictive and too short for me! I cannot wait till we get Aramis story!

The Naughty Princess by Claire Contreras is a steamy novella in the Sexy Royals series that is filled with lots of romance and twists to keep you wanting for more.

While her two older brothers are not afraid of getting caught in a scandal, Princess Pilar has always been the good child and a devoted member of the monarchy. Her life has been a little more sheltered and she desperately wants the freedom that her two other brothers have. When s

The Naughty Princess is quite the ironic name because what readers have learned about Princess Pilar and the way she lives her life in her brother’s story and at the beginning of her own is about as opposite of the word naughty as she can be, but then as the story line moves forward and Pilar gets a small taste of freedom on vacation, she does take some risks, allowing mutual attraction and sizzling chemistry above her royal duties and her crown.

The Naughty Princess: A Sexy Royals Novella is part of the 1001 Dark Nights World. It is a quick, sexy read.

Pilar is a princess. She is a bit sheltered and on the innocent side. She is tired of always having to be a good girl and behave. She just wants the chance to let loose and have fun. She has always had a crush on Benjamin Drake but she was too shy to act on it. She finally gets her chance to go on a date with the well-known bad boy football player.

Sexy Royal Romance!

“I’m not humoring you, Princess. I think about you often. Naked. In my bed. In the shower. Beneath me. On top of me.”

If you are looking for something sexy, steamy and little bit naughty, this novella ticks all the boxes. Even though this is a shorter book, it really packs in all feels and drama I love about royal romances. Princess Pilar, the good girl of the royal family, always staying out of the tabloids and never bringing shame to the legacy, wants to be a little naughty f

This book was hot and so sweet and exactly what I needed. Ben will set your panties on fire. I think I love him more than Elias. 🙊 Fans of The Player will be thrilled to see some familiar faces. The Naughty Princess didn't feel like a novella, the author delivered a full length story with the way the plot developed effortlessly.

I cannot wait for Aramis (and Joss'?) book.

“Quiet and attentive. Who would have known that underneath it all, you’re such a naughty princess?”

Can somebody turn the heat down in here?! For such a short story, this book sure packed a lot of heat!!

We first met Pilar in The Sinful King by Claire. Now, we finally get her story with the lovely Ben Drake! (The Sinful King does NOT need to be read to read this story.)

Sinful. Sexy. Addicting.

Definitely pick this one up if you’re looking for an angsty royal romance!!

Such a fan of royal romances and Claire Contreras delivers a quick, sweet, steamy one with The Naughty Princess. Plus, I love me a sexy footballer! I loved Pilar and Benjamin’s romance and I’m ready and excited for her brother’s story!

I couldn't wait to start Naughty Princess, ever since Claire released The Sinful King. With it being a novella, I figured I'd wait to read this one before starting The Sinful King. With being published by 1,001 Dark Nights, we get a novella length love story of Pilar and her footballer.

One of the things that 1,001 Dark Nights mention about their novellas is that they can be read as a standalone. Although I don't agree with that completely, you can definitely do that with Naughty Princess.

This book was everything that I need to be. It’s a royal romance, full of love, freedom, romance and the quick read that I wanted. I was able to read in one sit. And most important is the book sequence from The Sinful King, one of my favorites of this year.

I love everything about Princess Pilar and Benjamin Drake’s story. Pilar always followed the royal rules, the perfect example. Now that her brother was the King of France, she just wanted a little freedom and to go to a vacation to enjoy herse

The Naughty Princess is a 1001 Dark Nights novels written by Claire Contreras. Like all the Dark Nights stories it packs a lot of heart into a short package.

Pilar is anything but naughty, never stepping out of line in her royal family. She serves the crown first and rarely chooses to do anything for herself. But this last year has been hard and Pilar deserves a vacation. She heads to the island where the rich and famous play away from the majority of the prying cameras of the paparazzi.

This hot little novella kept me in its grip until the end. I absolutely loved Pilar and Benjamin together. Her naivety and innocence makes her endearing and he’s just the hot, older super star to show her how it’s done.

Pilar has always been the good girl. The picture perfect princess who always puts her family and the Crown first. She’s always thinking about everyone else and how to present herself and her family in the best light. But when she gets a chance to act on her long-time crush on the

What do a rule-following princess, a sexy futball star, and a summer in Ibiza have in common, you ask? They're at the heart of THE NAUGHTY PRINCESS, the new novella in the Sexy Royals series by author Claire Contreras.

The Sexy Royals series and 1001 Dark Nights is a match made in romance heaven. Having read THE SINFUL KING, I already knew that I was going to like Princess Pilar's story, and THE NAUGHTY PRINCESS, a sizzly steamy semi-forbidden romance, hits all of the marks.

This novella is set in the world of The Sinful King and this is Princess Pilar and football player, Benjamin Drake's story...

First and foremost, I have to say Claire did it again. She made me fall in love with the books and everything in it.
This book does not disappoint. It has everything, it is p-e-r-f-e-c-t.
The characters? I adore them so much.

Sexy royal romp! Stellar royal romance between the sheltered, good girl princess and the rough, playboy footballer. An island vacation for Princess Pilar brings her face to face with her crush and brothers' friend, the hot baller, Benjamin Drake. They have been acquainted for a few years now but this is the first time they've been in the same place without the other royals. Always the stay-out-of-trouble girl it's time to play and Pilar wants to play with the sexy Ben. He knows he shouldn't but ...more
