"If Sierra Simone and Skye Warren had a book baby it would be PLAYER." USA TODAY Bestselling author Samanthe Beck

——


I'm a 21st CENTURY COURTESAN. I'm down to my last four clients. One wants to play me. One wants to buy me. One wants to marry me. One wants to murder me. Will I get out in time?


——


I moonlight at Ma Maison as an escort to pay for Mom's pricey psych treatments. Beautiful, broken billionaires pay ungodly sums of money to be with me because I'm empathic -- I feel in my own body what they feel in theirs. I can heal what broke them.


When gorgeous high stakes poker player Dylan McAlister hires me, my empathic ability returns with a fury.


I feel the emotions that torment him. His shame roots in my belly. His heartache compresses my chest. His fear stabs me in my back.


It’s overwhelming, it's excruciating, but I can't abandon him -- I'm falling in love with him.

Will I help Dylan McAlister heal? Or will I break him beyond repair -- just like the first boy I feel in love with?


——


21st CENTURY COURTESAN is a sexy, dark, addictive series filled with love, lust, family loyalty, deceit, revenge, and all the sweet little things in life worth killing for...

Pam pitched the ERIN BROCKOVICH story to 'Hollywood.’ Her books have been adapted into mobile games by Chapters Interactive Stories, optioned for film /TV, and featured in Glamour UK.  A Midwestern girl at heart, Pam lives in So Cal where she’s busy reading, writing, and being bossed around by two cute, opinionated cats.

Too filthy to be a fairytale...


The tabloids say I’m alpha, arrogant, and relentless. I can live with that because I’m Maximillian Rochartè, Prince of Bellèno and I make royal problems go away.


The monarchy borrowed millions from shady oligarchs and loans are coming due. I convince a billionaire to fork over a fortune in exchange for marrying his daughter, Lady Cici to my playboy brother. Cici needs a few weeks to clear up loose ends but by then someone will be murdered and dumped into the Black Sea as fish food. Probably me.


I hire Vivian, an out of work American cocktail waitress -- who could be Cici’s sexier, funnier, smarter twin -- to impersonate her for a few weeks. Our chemistry’s crazy and I can’t help but proposition her relentlessly. In spite of my dirty, filthy, all consuming thoughts about what I’ll do to her once I get her in the sack -- I transform Vivian into a ‘lady.’


Now we’re back in Bellèno, weeks have passed, and Cici’s a no-show. I know in the depths of my deceitful heart that I'm falling in love with Vivian. Unfortunately, my brother is too...


PRAISE


"Deceit, suspense, jealously, heartbreak, Love, angst—it was like reading a contemporary version of The Crown. I could not put this book down." April Symes


"I absolutely love Vivian and Max." Amy Stephens


"... thanks to the … very dirty mind of a very hot ginger prince." Rae Sonethyn


"...heart all mushing, sexy and delightfully entertaining romantic comedy." A. Reviewer


——


I pick up Vivian's boot that has just bounced off my face after she threw it at my head. “Hold on, Cinderella. You forgot your glass slipper.” I can’t help but admire her bare leg: long, lean, toned.


“It’s pleather. Burn it,” she says. “Oh crap, did I hit you in the eye?”


“Yes, Rocky. I’ve endured worse.” I imagine both of her gorgeous legs draped over my shoulders as I... and I’m struck with the most brilliant idea. “It looks like you’re out of a job. Interested in a new one?”


——
