Since then, she has been living a happy life as a single mother. He ends up promising her that whatever happens, he will not part Ben from her. I really loved Julia James' writing here.
Is that admirable sentiment in a romance novel? After reviewing other options, Rico settles for the one that best allows Lizzy and Ben to remain together- marriage to him. He sees this as a sacrifice for his brother's child because he is not even physically attracted to Lizzy. But Lizzy is stunned by Rico's solution.
She splutters her way into reasoning with Rico. The gist of it was- a marriage is unthinkable, who would ever believe it when splutter, splutter I am 'grotesque' without self-pity? Rico is both touched and appalled by her downtrodden self-assessment. My sense was that after this, the playboy prince lowered his guards and already opened his heart to Lizzy without knowing it. So all three characters fly to Rico's country. But Rico's family is devious. They only pretended to agree to Rico and Lizzy's marriage.
As soon as they arrived at the palace, Lizzy is separated from Rico and Ben on the excuse that the rest of the family would like to meet Ben for the first time in private. Except that there is no family. His parents are not even present, just the Heir Prince who reveals to Rico the plan to kick Lizzy out of San Lucenzo and ban her from ever returning, now that Ben was here.
And the boy was to be handed over to a royal caretaker instead of snug in the family bosom. Rico is so enraged by this duplicity that he punches his brother out and through a secret passage, he gets Lizzy and Ben out of the palace. He apologizes for his family's awfulness. In this place, they genuinely get to know one another, and Lizzy and Rico develop into a mutual admiration society. There's a scene where Lizzy comforts a graze-kneed Ben and Rico wonders who comforted him when he was a child, a nanny rather than his Princess Mother.
Rico also effects a fashion makeover for Lizzy, overriding her objections with the argument that he intended to make a public announcement of their marriage with matching photo shoots, thereby forcing his family to acknowledge Lizzy and Ben. The makeover is a resounding success, maybe too much because little Ben was complaining Lizzy did not look like his old Mummy but something from a magazine, while Rico is like- wth, where'd she get that figure from?
As a reader, is that believable for me? It's so easy to get men interested physically. But Rico had already hurdled that early on. The new element of physical attraction simply acts as the flint to the realization that he already loves Lizzy. Lizzy for herself is all too aware that Rico is as smokin' as much as he is kind but she never allows herself fantasies because she's convinced he is out of her reach. I really liked the way Rico set about removing the barriers between them so they could both be equals in love.
But Rico's family has one last dirty trick to play. His father the Ruling Prince asks him to return home for a family schmooze prior to a public acknowledgment of Rico's marriage. But upon arrival, Rico is arrested on trumped up charges to separate him from Lizzy. Rico completely loses faith in his family. If he had hoped that they would at least show kindness to Ben because his dead father was the youngest prince and only child doted on by his aloof parents, the hope dies. In the end, they're just too royal to be real.
Though she and Ben are miserable, Lizzy does her best to soldier on, telling Ben their continental adventure is over. Not by long shot it isn't. Rico renounces his claim to the throne and comes after Lizzy and Ben. There's even a lovely epilogue to seal the HEA. These days it's mostly about heroine's drooly perspective over how rich and sexy the hero is.

So a story with depth to its characters like this one is rare and a sure winner for me. Dunno why the tacky title, though.
Thank goodness for ebooks because I can't imagine the risk of carrying a paperback that my co-workers could easily spot to tease me about without mercy. Please save us the embarrassment of cringe-making torrid titles like Royally Wedded, Regally Bedded with matching photos of attractive yet empty-eyed unconvincing models.

He must have in some dark place in his mind wanted Lizzy. Why would he want to run away until the royal family had reached a decision. He never said that he wanted the throne so why give him a choice of his bride or the throne?
It was a little puzzling. I don't Lizzy Mitchell goes from single mom to princess bride, all because she has something that Prince Rico Ceraldi wants. I don't think she had any body issues anymore because when she went to the spa she saw a whole now person that she could be if she took the time to do it everyday. It was great the Rico wanted her. That should make her feel even better about her self. I guess I just don't know why people complain about these books.
No one told them to buy them, if you don't like harlequin romance then don't read them. I love them because I am taken to a different place every time I read one. It gives me a HEA. The biggest issue I had with this one was probably the kid. I know that small children tend to think of themselves as the center of the universe but good Lord. I can only guess that the h doted on him to the point that he never knew the least disappointment, in spite of the abject poverty they lived in which was another thing - what did she DO for a living?
There was no mention of a J. This of course lead to him being a sullen brat near the end of the book when they were ship The biggest issue I had with this one was probably the kid. This of course lead to him being a sullen brat near the end of the book when they were shipped unceremoniously back to their shack in Cornwall. And her pleading with him to cooperate or have fun or something.

Beyond that, there is the inequality - this isn't the first of these HPs I've run into where the author felt the need to drill into our heads that the h was impoverished. The method of administering this though is downright insulting - frequently referring to the h's clothing as cheap, as if there's something wrong with wearing non-designer duds.
And the looks dept. The H, refreshingly, isn't a jackass. He's overbearing, but then, he is a prince and used to getting his way. He gets tricked into bringing her to his home country where she is promptly separated from the child. He loses it and decks his brother, grabs her and the kid, finds a priest, and marries her to keep them safe. One makeover later and he sees her as she really is well, minus the overly dried out frizzy hair that deep conditioning and probably a brazillian blow out rendered manageable.
She doesn't recognize herself in a mirror back to that never actually looking at oneself thing I guess. Of course, dear old dad places H under house arrest trying to force him to declare the marriage null. He apparently refused and told them where to stick his title. Tracks down h and sullen brat on a beach in England whereupon the kid magically stops sulking and starts trying to make a castle and demand attention while he and the h are attempting to discuss things.
They work it out but boy I hope the kid figures out how to share attention as the h is pg in the epilogue. Buena Muy entretenida y amena. Jan 20, Nikki rated it really liked it. Short, sweet and sensible something not alot of books about Princes are. How the couple came together over their love of Ben first was really important. Both sides of the family were horrid. But I like that it didn't end the 'normal' royal way. Very realistic to me. Jan 15, RomLibrary added it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
