BE MY PRINCE



Lady Alexandra Monroe has been told in no uncertain terms that she must set her sights on a proposal from Prince Randolph to better her family's situation. Instead, she finds herself falling for his charming but dangerous younger brother Nicholas, a man whose passionate nature―and irresistible good looks―makes it impossible to remember her duty. But while she is torn between ambition and desire, a wicked scandal brews, shocking secrets are revealed, and soon she begins to wonder: can true love really conquer all?



"You can always count on Julianne MacLean to deliver ravishing romance."―Teresa Medeiros

This book lacked that wonderful quality of "connecting" for me. There was no emotional draw from the story or the characters....which left me indifferent. So "no thanks" and returned this book.

Be My Prince
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.

I just finished reading this novel and I'm feeling somewhat dumbfounded to what I feel. Romance novel should take the reader into a fantasy of a happy place where we can forget the stress of daily life and yet, this novel just didn't do anything for me but the feeling of dread that I just wanted it to end!!! I didn't care for the characters because they were not likeable at all especially the heroine who is very cold and no matter what the author did, (in an attempt to make the readers care for her), I just didn't warmed up to her. Readers are supposed to care for the characters and yet, this heroine is no better than the rest of the women who are social climbers with aspirations to be a royal princess. I found her cold and I feel that the hero could have done better. As for the hero, initially I thought he was the better of the two but as the novel progressed, he's one dimensional and his treatment towards the heroine got so tiresome, believing that she's a liar even though both lied in the first place in order to achieved their goals. The story was filled with lies, secrets, and palace intrigue that were not resolved until the end that I found myself skipping a lot of the pages. I wanted to like this story so much since I love stories between royal prince and princess in an historical romance setting and yet, this one, failed in so many ways. I don't hate it but I wouldn't read it again, either, which is why, instead of one star, I'm giving it two stars. I do hope that the next 2 stories in the Royal Triology are better than this one.

Meh! I have been an avid historical and contemporary romance reader for 25 years, but this is my first book by Julianne MacLean. I seldom review the books I read, but this one was so disappointing, I felt compelled to rate it. Flat, slow-paced, one-dimensional, confusing, constant yo-yo'ing "I love you", "I don't trust you" nonsense with a confused and very abrupt ending that makes you wonder what the trigger was that convinced Randolph that Alexandra could be trusted; and why that trigger was different to the other more compelling actions that Alexandra displayed to prove her love. This is the first time I have struggled so much to finish a book. Not worth your money or time.

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!
