Following graduation from the University of California at Berkley, Princess Christianna returns to her home the European monarchy of Liechtenstein because her father Prince Hans Josef asked her. She loves her dad and would do almost anything he asked of her, but after four years in California meeting people, Christianna feels alone except for her sire, her dog, and the servants. She has no friends who can see beyond the Serene Highness the way they had in America where no one heard of her country. On the news, she sees terrorist incidents in Russia and the plight of children in Africa. She persuades her dad she needs to go to help though not necessarily in an official state capacity. He reluctantly agrees to let his beloved offspring join the Red Cross at an East African refugee camp. There she hides her HRH status and makes friends. Christianna begins to fall in love with Doctors Without Borders physician Parker Williams who reciprocates, but she fears telling him the truth. However, a tragedy back in her hometown of Vaduz forces her to return home to confront her royalty. --- A modern update of Roman Holiday is a well written royal romance starring two sincere caring individuals falling in love though her station in life makes it seemingly impossible for anything permanent. The lead pair are wonderful people dedicated to helping others so they serve as role models. However, neither seems to have a deep flaw let alone a selfish bone (or even a cuticle) so only the crown keeps them apart. Still Danielle Steel¿s fans will enjoy this regal contemporary romance. --- Harriet Klausner

same book everytime

I have read lots of books by DS but this one was disappointing. Everything was redundant and her excessive use to the word 'forever', and 'totally' was just overdone. I'm sick of how she writes books about people who are born into money and have all these perfect lives ...
I have read lots of books by DS but this one was disappointing. Everything was redundant and her excessive use to the word 'forever', and 'totally' was just overdone. I'm sick of how she writes books about people who are born into money and have all these perfect lives and what not. Real life isn't like that I am have to agree with another reviewer that her old books were alot better. It seems as if the drive is gone and she's throwing out 3 or 4 books a year just to make a buck...and that' not right, the public doesn't deserve that. I found that H.R.H is just like A good Woman and I haven't even read A good woman yet. Some of the sentences in the book didn't make any sense. I figured that was because she writes a 300 page book in two weeks on two hours of sleep a night and that doesn't work. That's why she repeats things and says them over and over again in every chapter. I liked the fact that Christianna wanted to be like every body else, but she was 'distined to be the daughter of a Reigning Prince forever and ever' and I'm sick of her books like this! I want something original, like the ones she wrote in 80's and 90's. If she keeps writing crap like this I am going to stop reading her present writings and stick to her past ones because those were REALLY good.

    Typical Danielle Steele

    This was a good and easy read. I really couldn't put the book down, but I really didn't like the end. It seemed like it really didn't finalize the story and left you hanging, even though you knew the outcome.

    Not the same Danielle Steel.....

    I've been an avid fan of Danielle Steel for a long, long time. And I must say that her current novels do not even compare to her earlier novels 'think Family Album, Full Circle, Fine Things, Jewels, etc.' The current ones are redundant and boring and everyone is perfect, rich, and have some serious issues that are solved in about 250 pages and they all live happily ever after. I really miss the books of old.....I don't even buy them anymore. I get them at the library. Very disappointed.

    So - So....

    This was my first Danielle Steel book. It was kind of boring. This book has its moments. However I will still recommend it because it has a good story line.

    Interesting...

    Alright, I know there are people who have read other books by Danielle Steel and some who might not like this book at all...Please don't get me wrong I have no intentions of anything bad ment here. If I was to be honest with everyone this is my first time reading a Danielle Steel book and I have always wanted to read this book in particular. I thought this book was well plotted and written. I will admit I didn't like the many repeats or some of the very detailed parts in the book but it wasn't that boring to me or even that dull. It had its up and downs...but it kept me interested and I think for that reason it was a good book. I am in one of the last chapters and can not wait to see what else Danielle might have written like this, with hopefully no repeats. I have to say before I stop though that I understand why she might have repeated, because she wanted to make a point or whated you to catch that part because I do the same thing when I write my books...something we have to try to remember not to do...You're doing great Danielle Steel!!!

    what really happens in the world

    I also received this book as a Christmas gift and I am also a new mother and although the scenes were graphic during the terrorist attacks in Russia, and as MUCH AS I WANTED TO RETURN THE BOOK, I kept reading because unfortunately...there REALLY are disgusting animals like that in this world. I liked this book and I kinda knew what was going to happen in the end but not HOW it would happen...I am a Danielle Steel fan no matter what.
