Book Description

Nikolai de Montez, an international lawyer, has just discovered he's the estranged heir to the throne of Alp de Montez. To rightfully rule, he must marry Rose!

Rose McCray is an ordinary country vet, but her royal bloodline makes her Nik's bride of choice--and Rose knows it's her duty to accept.

The wedding ceremony is sumptuous, but when the formalities are over it's time for the prince and princess of Alp de Montez to get to know one another as man and wife!

2.0 out of 5 stars A Promise not Delivered July 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had held so much promise--two main characters who had lived hard lives, but somehow came through it all morally unscathed (well, if you are willing to discount the emotional scars they each bore). Additionally, as one who is swayed by the visual imagery on the cover, I had so much hope for the book! But for me the book did not deliver on excitement and believability. Overall, the story is well written, but it is the details that trip my mind and diminished my enjoyment of the story. Hence the details are the story's undoing (for me at least).
The main character Nikolai, a powerful international lawyer, did little in the book to convince me that he was indeed powerful, decisive or formidable. Indeed Rose was really the one who made the book readable. She carried the story. She was wise, caring, and quietly powerful. But she was willing to temper her power in order for Nikolai to get to the helm of the de Montez monarchy. She was reminiscent of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise---the former always appearing just slightly in the background in public pictures with the latter---appearing to be negating her own power and right to stand as an equal---the whole "behind every `successful man...'" routine is not one that I am greatly fond of and I felt this story pushed that quite a bit. However, she (Rose) too was not believable to me---a country vet (country being the operative word) who is catapulted to this other life, beginning with her incredible physical transformation from a worn denim-overalls-wearing-smelling-like-horses-country-vet to a knock-out siren when she goes to the initial meeting with Nikolai and the de Montez emissary. She was transformed for the meeting and then she went back to her raggedy old denims for the trip home and thereafter...too much incongruity for me...
Needless to say, I did not like it very much---the two stars are for a great cover picture!

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Marion Lennox's A ROYAL MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE is a fast-faced fun romance read set in a fairy tale atmosphere. The inheritance theme takes characters good in heart and puts them in impossible situations, creating humor, suspense while the reader alternately moves from open-eyed gasps to smiles seeing how the characters cope with each new plot twist.

Rose McCray, a country vet, has had just about enough of her late husband's parents. She might as well be imprisoned and now the demands of honoring his memory have gone way over the top. When a letter arrives and plans are formed to make her claim the throne of Alp de Montez, it seems like a fairy tale come true... Nikolai de Montez, international lawyer, discovers he is the estranged heir to the throne but to rule, he must marry a woman he does not know, Rose McCray. Knowing how much the people need a change from previous monarchs, his humanitarian interests take over. A fairy tale that sounds too good and too easy to be true? True it is, but easy, never! Secret plots, greed and jealousy thwart them at every turn. Can they convince the people of Alp de Montez that this wedding is a marriage of love? Working together to help the people of this small country and protect their lives, will Nikolai and Rose find true love?

Marion Lennox's A ROYAL MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE delights with a crazy roller coaster plot ride. Fast-paced in action, each new twist opens the hearts of Rose and Nikolai to each other. Each peril shows the inner character, warming the reader's heart as well. Rose's three legged dog Hoppy reveals the inner character of both villains and those with good hearts. Never overplayed or too cute, Marion Lennox writes Hoppy's character in just the right proportion to steal hearts.
