Reviewed by Ann & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog
BE MY PRINCE is my first novel by Julianne MacLean. As the first book in the Royal Trilogy, I have to say that I was very intrigued by the idea surrounding this series. Upon starting this book, I knew right off the bat that I liked MacLean's writing style. It's unique and runs very smoothly and I think this is very important in any book, but most importantly in a historical romance.
Lady Alexandra Monroe is in a predicament. Her family's fortune is dwindling so in order to stop that from continuing, she must marry someone with money. Who has more money than a prince? So as Alex sets her sights on Prince Randolph, she finds that there is more to Randolph than she knew.
I enjoyed the beginning of this book. Randolph tries to intimidate Alex and "test" her, however even though Alex doesn't know he is the prince, she is still able to make an impression on the man. Alex intrigues Randolph and it's clear that the sparks are there.
However, I felt that the book lost some of its footing. It didn't hold my attention after that. I felt like some scenes dragged on too long, while others were too short. I wonder if it's because this is the first book in the series and therefore, the author is trying to set up the others. Nevertheless, this one fell a little short. I will still continue with the series because I feel like there is a lot of potential. This one just wasn't the brightest star.

REVIEW: I adored this book! The entire thing was DEVINE! Okay, I don't want to give away too many secrets on it, as they are so worth waiting for but let me say this book doesn't disappoint. While one part could be guessed, the rest of it was both frustrating (in a good way!) and such a great read.
The sensuality between these two characters smoked up the pages and the action packed scenes in between gave the book that much more oomph to follow. I loved how Ms. MacLean built up the drama occurring behind the scenes as well as the characters before letting it all explode together. The entire piece was masterfully crafted and very well written.
If you are looking for a read that will keep you up late at night, with your nails bitten off, again in a good way, then this piece is for you. Five out of five stars for an amazing job!
What Alexandra did not expect is Randolph's handsome and beguiling brother Nicholas to capture her attention. Alex is trying to stay focused on the prize she has to have but Nicholas is standing in the way and she can't stop the desire and passion she feels for him. Nicholas tries desperately to give Alexandra the match she seeks but if that means he must give her up, he is not sure he can comply with that request. In this game of lies, deceit, and perhaps betrayal, nothing is as it appears and the truth really is more powerful than the two people standing together in a heated embrace.
Julianne MacLean writes the romance readers crave showing her mastery in the craft of the twisted plot.
