Book Description

One night is about to change Bella's life for ever...



Bella Greenwood isn't a fairytale girl. If pushed, she'd probably tell you that her perfect wedding would involve a handful of close friends and family. But as she's never met anyone she'd like to marry, it's a moot point.



Until, in a midnight garden, Bella is helped out of an embarrassing situation by a tall, dark, handsome man with laughing eyes. And suddenly her life changes for ever, because the man is the world's most eligible bachelor: Prince Richard, heir to the throne.



Richard sweeps her off her feet, and before she knows it they're engaged. Which is when Bella's problems really begin. Suddenly she is public property, and as if it isn't enough to have her every move watched - while also learning to curtsy and negotiating the etiquette of how to address her future mother-in-law - she soon finds herself embroiled in bridesmaid politics, a right royal hen night, and a wedding dress controversy that causes a national scandal...



Can this ordinary girl survive the preparations for her very own Royal Wedding?

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Kate and William, but delightful May 3, 2011
Format:Paperback
This was a very enjoyable combination of straight romance--two people learning to connect--and a realistic assessment of what it's like to fall in love with a royal prince. Sophie Page had come up with a very clever alternate English history so that the royal family in the book isn't the ones we know, but they're very believable. (In real life, Princess Charlotte, only daughter of the Prince Regent in the early 19th century, died in childbirth at age 21, along with her infant son. In Page's version, Charlotte and son survived and she and her husband ruled long and well. Victoria was never born.)

So--Isabella Greenwood is a budding ecologist who has been off counting fish in the Indian Ocean for almost a year, so she feels some disconnect when she returns to London and moves into her best friend's flat. She certainly doesn't expect that the nice guy with the great voice who helps untangle her from lethal ivy at a posh party is Richard, Prince of Wales.

Richard is a genuinely nice guy who loves meeting a girl who doesn't recognize him in the darkness. He's also seriously attracted to Bella and her candor and her ability to see him as a man, not only a prince. She is not pleased when she finds out that the nice guy is the Prince of Wales and has one of the most demanding jobs in the world, but she really likes him, too. (Not only is he nice, but he's seriously hot. <G>)

Their relationship progresses from sneaking around (not easy when a guy has a security detail), to officially dating but of course a commoner can't marry the prince, to an engagement that pitches Bella, a private person,into a maelstrom of paparazzi and craziness. She loves Richard. Richard loves her. Can they find a way to be together without losing their souls?

5.0 out of 5 stars And they lived happily ever after September 19, 2013
Format:Paperback
I was recently on a reading binge that involved a prince with an ordinary girl. Of the books I read in this genre, this was my favorite.

There are parts of this book that are rather trite, but you should expect that even as you first read this book because hey, it's about a royal falling in love with an ordinary girl. So we have Bella, who's been away on a distant island for sevearl months, which explains why she doesn't recognize the prince. She's lovely, she's normal, and she has the air-headedness that's requisite in these types of books. She's not completely stupid, but she's also a little quirky.

Then there Richard, the crown prince. He's everything you would imagine in a prince--assertive, responsible, handsome, charming, etc.

The book follows their relationship from how they meet, to how they start dating, their engagement, and the troubles they face. However, the book doesn't try to create some greater purpose where one doesn't exist. The purpose of this book is a light, fun, but well-written read, and it achieves that purpose wonderfully. Yes, we know that the life of a royal may not be all fun and designer clothes. We know that privacy becomes a highly prized commodity. But rather than harping on that, this book allows the reader to indulge in the fantasy of the normal girl and her happily ever after with her prince.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give It A Try--You won't regret it :) July 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw that this book had only one review, and I thought what I great injustice that was for this book has surprising depth. The story of the characters' romance is kind of whirlwind but also believable in it's on way. You get to know them as individuals (especially Bella) AND how they come to be the couple that they are. I felt like I was with them on their journey. This was an addictive read for me, maybe cause I'm all about fairytales and Prince Charming; but here we see that Prince Charming has some personality flaws just like everybody else and learn along w/Bella that on the road to true love we have to take the flaws and all.

The only bad thing I can say is that I was left w/o an epilogue. But that's just me; I'm always left unsatisfied if I don't have a look into the lives after the happy ending. This in no way takes away from the book just that I wished I had more time w/Bella and Richard. That is just a testament to how much I loved this book. A definite re-read for me!

4.0 out of 5 stars To Marry a Prince June 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked it. The plot was good, not totally realistic-but hey, it's "Cinderella" after all and we have to suspend some disbelief . It kept me turning the pages to see what happened next. I didn't like the language. There was much more swearing than I would have liked, but it wasn't as pervasive as it could have been.

There was a plot-twist at the end that I didn't see coming. She tied up all of the plot strings and ended it just before the wedding, so I felt a bit cheated/deprived by that. I wanted a royal wedding included and leaving it out was like missing out on dessert-a nice helping of English Trifle in this case.

I know the author is English, but the "voice" of the novel felt American in the beginning, although later it did begin to seem English. I'm not sure if it was only that the vernacular used seemed more American to me, but I didn't feel any "Englishness" in the early chapters. Maybe we have changed contemporary British English more than I thought, or she was writing for an international audience. I don't know, but it did want to make me stop reading. I'm glad I continued.

On the whole, I'd recommend this book. Once in a while, that's just what you need: Cinderella with a side of English Trifle.
