Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Imagine that Alaska became its own country and that it is the present day and Alaska has a royal family, who, although they live in a palace in Juneau, are down-to-earth. The king, especially, enjoys going "native," growing a beard and chartering a fishing boat incognito. It is during one of these excursions that he decides that a fellow passenger would make a perfect wife for his eldest son, David. Christina is a wandering soul alone in the world, who not only ends up at the palace but quickly becomes a valued member of the household. She and David hit it off, but the day after their wedding, they are confronted with a crisis of major proportions. What's difficult to believe (once you get past picturing Alaska as a country) is that anyone would envision Christina as a princess: she has a mouth like a longshoreman. But it's fun to watch her and David, two opposite personalities, come together in Davidson's quirky tale. Maria Hatton

Customer Reviews

Finished the book and decided to read it again.
Marianne Hyer
Though the plot seems to be a little too short to fill the book, the main and minor characters more than make up for it!
P. Roeder
Fun characters, intriguing setting and a plot that moves right along.

I love MJD's stories and I enjoyed this one as well, but I am a bit concerned that her heroines are becoming a bit of caricature. As with UNDEAD & UNWED, we have another smart aleck, foul-mouthed sarcastic heroine as Christina is very similar to Betsy (from U&U). Though I enjoy these spirited, tough chicks, they're best in small doses and having Betsy and Christina's stories follow so closely to one another, I was sort of on sassy chick overload by the time I finished this book. Don't get me wrong, I liked Christina and did recognize that deep down, WAY deep down inside her she had a heart of gold, it was just that her surface was so sharp and brittle. I would have liked to see a bit more softness in her and less of the sharp elbows (or should I say tongue!). But that said, this story was still a hoot!
Wiseguy Christina fits in perfectly with the off-kilter, wacky and unconventional Alaskan Royals! King Alexander is known to sport an "I'M THE KING - WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?" t-shirt, recline in a lazy-boy in his office and captain a fishing boat incognito (but he's frustrated that he is almost always recognized!). On one such fishing excursion, he meets Christina who's just lost her job as a cook on a cruise ship. With no money and no where to go, "Al" offers to let her stay at his place (she doesn't realize who he is at first). She takes him up on his offer only to discover that he's matchmaking for his reserved, penguin-obsessed son, Crown Prince David. David is about the only calm, sane member of the family and Al thinks Christina is just what he needs. She's cute, smart and will make a tough, no-nonsense queen that David can depend on when the time comes.

It seems that every time I read one of Mary Janice Davidson's books in public, I get weird glances thrown my way. This is because I'm laughing out loud at some of the hilarious situations and phrases Davidson weaves into her writing! Her dialogue is always a laugh a minute, and the characters all seem to capture your heart almost immediately.

Christina Krabbe, after insulting the King of Antarctica and speaking boldly and brazenly to his majesty, was selected by the King to be his eldest son's bride! Though far from an arranged marriage, King Alexander was charmed by Chris' open manner and, well, rather foul mouth. An open person was a breath of fresh air in the stuffy world of monarchies and royal families.

Upon meeting Chris, the crown prince David is immediately attracted to her, and soon after meeting, he proposes. Much to David's shock, Chris turns him down cold, in no uncertain terms! Much hilarity ensues with their whirlwind courtship and ultimately, their marriage.

Though the plot seems to be a little too short to fill the book, the main and minor characters more than make up for it! Each character is as amusing as the last: Christina and David, the quirky, quarrelling couple; Edmund Dante, the sarcastic, hulking butler; King Alexander, (call me Al) the avid fisherman and keen wit extraordinaire.

'The Royal Treatment' was as hilarious and as charming as the heroine herself, and that is a tall order. If you're in the mood for a light read with thoroughly likable characters, then you'd do well to pick up a copy of this book for yourself!

I snatched this book at the store when I saw it and never regretted it. Christina Krabbe alone and unemployed picked up by a Cruise ship with a crazy,but lovable King with a lot of kids,one who is named David who is eligble and enjoys penguins. I will not go into any more,but to tell you to read and enjoy. I want a sequel Mrs. Davidson,one featuring Alexa, Katheryn,and their youngest brother. I WANT MOREEEEEE OF THIS FAMILY........... Full of humor and fun

The Royal Treatment by MaryJanice Davidson is hysterical, you will not want to put it down. MaryJanice has created a world where Alaska is not part of the USA but a Royal Country.
Christina Krabbe is stranded in Alaska after she gets fired from her latest job. She meets "Al" who tells her to call his secretary if she needs help. Little does she know that she had just met King Alexander II. When Chris does look up Al, she realizes he wants her for his son Prince David.
Prince David has spent his time earning a doctorate in Marine Biology and caring for his beloved penguins. He wasn't expecting the whirlwind of Christina Krabbe.
This book will keep you laughing, the dialogue between the characters is a scream. David and Christina are perfect for each other and will melt any cold Alaskan night.
Can't wait to read more of Ms. Davidson's books.

This was the first book by Mary Janice Davidson that I have read, and I was not disappointed. It was so funnny. To make up an eniterly new history for Alaska is a little risky but she pulled it off "royally". Christina and David are an unconventional couple but they seem to work. The dialogue is hillarous and intelligently witty. I hope that Davidson doesn't stop with this one book I think the other charcters, such as Princess Alex could have equally reat stories of their own. I highly recommned this book and I mayself can not wait to read other books by Mary Janice Davidson.
