PLAYBOY Prince Andrew is "obsessed" with redheads and was introduced to a string of new lovers by Jeffrey Epstein, a bombshell book claims.
Before the Duke's visits, his paedo financier pal would send his "scouts" to "comb the streets" for suitable women for him to meet, it is alleged.
It promises to spill "never before revealed testimony" from a "bevy" of women who claim they were “intimate” with Andrdew.
Author Ian Halperin says he spoke to at least a dozen women who claim they had flings with the Duke of York - some after being introduced by Jeffrey Epstein.
Halperin says he has found no evidence that Andrew had sex with underage women.
But he adds: “There is no doubt that Epstein provided girls to Andrew, and that was the reason they were friends.
“He had an obsession with redheads, and Epstein would have his scouts combing the streets for the most beautiful redheads before they met.”
Best-selling author Halperin says his new book will pile pressure on Andrew to meet FBI agents probing his sex trafficking ring.
The Duke, who visited Epstein's luxury homes during their friendship, denies he was aware of any wrongdoing by the billionaire financier.
He has vehemently denied allegations he slept with Epstein’s sex slave Virginia Roberts.
Halperin’s six-volume book is described by publishers as “the rollicking, scandalous, untold story behind the power, greed and corruption by the world's most powerful elite”.
Publicity blurb claims Halperin “goes for royal blood” in volume one, offering up details of Prince Andrew as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ‘Megxit’ separation from the Royal Family.
'HE ROCKED MY WORLD'
Some of the allegations in the book were reported last night by the New York Post's Page Six.
It claims the prince was a "sex addict" and was very adventurous in bed.
According to the paper, Halperin says: “Most women painted Andrew as a perfect gent and said it was consensual.
“One woman said he was a very daring lover: there were no limits to where he would go in bed.
“She told me, ‘Andrew rocked my world in the bedroom,’ but she felt disappointed because after that… she didn’t hear from him again.”
'ON HIS KNEES BEGGING'
The author also alleges Andrew began to fear Epstein, and that is why he visited him in Manhattan after his release from jail.
Halperin says: “Epstein got information on people and he’d use it against them.
"[When he and Andrew last] met in 2011, Andrew was on his hands and knees begging Epstein never to reveal anything about him.
“If Epstein had a prince on his knees, imagine the power he had over others.”
Canadian filmmaker and author Halperin promises to tell the "real story" of Andrew's friendship with Epstein.
In an interview on US radio, he said: “It's going to shed a lot of light.
“l'll say one thing after my book, if Prince Andrew is not finally interrogated by the Feds, we've got a major problem because I'm unleashing a ton (of) never before revealed stuff.
“About the Epstein case, about Maxwell, especially about Prince Andrew and about a plethora of other people connected to Epstein whose roles have never been revealed before.”
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the new book.
A source close to the duke said: “Both in style and substance, many of these anonymous recollections seem sensationalised from people lacking the conviction to attach their names to them, though the emphasis on consensual, adult relationships is an important one.
“As for allegations in regard to the nature of Duke’s relationship with Epstein, these unsubstantiated and lurid tales seem designed to sell books.”
Andrew, 60, is currently in a stand-off with US authorities over whether he will co-operate with an investigation into Epstein’s alleged co-conspirators.

She is currently in jail awaiting trial and denies the charges against her.
Epstein, 66, killed himself in jail last year.
