When artist Petey Cavanaugh agreed to show her steel and glass sculptures in a Manhattan gallery, she never planned on falling in love with a prince.

Feeling humiliated and betrayed, she refuses to have anything to do with him. Will she give him the chance to explain? Or has his lie of omission cost him everything?

She turned her face to meet his lips, devouring them hungrily, as he pulled her closer. Sliding her hands inside his jacket, she helped him shrug it off without breaking the kiss. Holding her tightly, Nik backed their way to the couch where he sat, bringing Petey to rest straddling his lap, and deepening their kiss.
He slipped his hands beneath her sweater, skimming up her torso to cup her breasts. Finally releasing his lips, she dropped her head back and gasped as he kneaded her mounds, fondling her nipples, coaxing them into sharp points that strained against the fabric of her bra. She raised her arms and he slipped the sweater over her head, dropping it to the floor.
Nik leaned back slightly to admire her perfect tits, tantalizingly on display in ivory lace. When he looked back up, her soft brown eyes flickered with heat.
“I want you.” Her voice was husky.
He plunged his lips to hers once again. With his hands on her hips, he pulled her against his burgeoning erection, and she moaned into his mouth. “Let’s take this to the bedroom,” he murmured.
Gently, he slid her from his lap, and took her hand, leading her to the library door. “Wait!” she hissed. “All those people are out there.”
“Bloody hell,” he muttered, running a hand through his hair. He blew out a frustrated breath. “Just one moment.” He held up a finger. Planting a quick kiss on her cheek, he slipped out of the library, closing the door behind him.
Petey stood awkwardly, endeavoring to catch her breath. As an afterthought, she scooped up her sweater from the floor and slipped it back over her head.
Two minutes later, the door opened and Nik leaned into the room. “All gone. I sent them all away for the rest of the night.” He frowned slightly. “You got dressed.”
“I felt silly just standing here, so…”
“Come,” he held out a hand. “Let’s get properly reacquainted.”
Not bothering to close the bedroom door, Nik drew Petey to himself once again, peeling off her sweater and her bra as well. Hands resting lightly on her hips, he gazed down at her. “You have the most exquisite breasts.” He cupped them, hefting their weight, rolling her nipples between his thumbs and forefingers, encouraged by her breathy moans.
“You have too many clothes on,” Petey murmured, reaching to loosen his tie. She dropped it to the floor and helped him remove his shirt, as well.
Pressing herself to his bare chest, she reached up to tilt his face towards her, claiming his lips with her own. Nik lifted her, walking to the bed, where he lay her gently. With an impish grin, he unfastened her jeans and removed them, panties and all, dropping them with the other clothes littering the floor.
His mouth watered at the sight of the neatly trimmed thatch of red hair at the juncture of her thighs. But he knew he couldn’t hold off any longer. He undid his pants and dropped them to the floor, releasing the raging erection that would not be denied. A glance up at Petey showed her eyeing his cock hungrily.
Quickly, he reached for a foil packet in the bedside drawer. Tearing it open, he rolled on the condom, crawled on top of her, and slammed himself home. Petey gasped in his ear as she tightly gripped his upper arms. “Oh, yes,” she hissed.
Feeling his moment rising, he increased his pace, and Petey responded with cries of pleasure. “Come with me, love,” he encouraged. On his next thrust, she arched beneath him, calling out loudly, as he exploded in release.
