A princess in disguise is forced to live with a rogue in order to protect her from danger in this fun, sexy regency romance.
Bow Street agent Sebastien Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, doesn't believe in love―until a passionate kiss with a beautiful stranger in a brothel forces him to reconsider. When the mysterious woman is linked to an intrigue involving a missing Russian princess, however, Seb realizes her air of innocence was too good to be true.
Princess Anastasia Denisova has been hiding in London as plain 'Anna Brown'. With a dangerous traitor hot on her trail, her best option is to accept Wolff's offer of protection―and accommodation―at his gambling hell. But living in such close quarters, and aiding Wolff in his Bow Street cases, fans the flames of their mutual attraction. If Anya's true identity is revealed, does their romance stand a chance? Could a princess ever marry a rogue?

❛The Bow Street Bastard and the fairy-tale princess fell in love.❜
❝I’m still waiting to find that gorgeous someone who irritates me enough to want to strangle her. Until then, I plan to enjoy my bachelor status to the hilt.❞
Bow Street agent Sebastien Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, is tasked with figuring out who is responsible for the recent string of murders and discover the link (if any) to a missing Russian princess.
❝I don’t bed virgins. Ever. I bed wenches. Actresses. Widows. Tarts.❞
While he’s not new to the charms of women (he visits the brothel to get his ‘needs’ met), Sebastian doesn’t believe in love. But a passionate encounter with a stranger who runs away has him chasing a future he never considered.
Russian Princess Anastasia Denisova is on a mission to stay undercover so as to not bring harm to her door. She’s living an unassuming life as the assistant to Dowager Duchess of Winwick and tutor in the brothel next door to her home. Getting involved with anyone is risky, but the alluring Earl of Mowbray has her questioning if the risk is worth it.
This story is filled with passion, tension, teasing, and exploring.
❝She circled him and he regarded her warily, like a wolf trapped in a snare, unsure whether she meant to free him or dispatch him.❞
❛Princess and the Rogue❜ was a passionate slow burn romance with off the charts sexual tension.
