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.

    Danielle Steel does it again!

    This is a wonderful book. Gives a look into the life of a princess, shows there is a lot more to it than beautiful gowns and dinner parties. All of the characters were very likeable. I wish she would have gone into more detail about what happened with the characters at the end of the book. I suppose she left that up to our imagination. I would recommend this book.

    A Good Read

    This book was a bit dark at times as well as a little redundant, but overall a good read. I expected the ending but not how Steel arrived at the ending. An overall enjoyable book.

    DANIELLE STEEL FAN

    I thought this book was wonderful. She was was repetative some at the beginning, but I thought the story line was very good. She did a good job at telling a story, more than just a romance. I can't wait to read 'Sisters'

    A LOVE STORY

    This is a story about love and overcoming the obstacles so two lovers can be together. It was refreshing not to have a setting in her usual of CA, NY, or France.

    Good but not great....

    Well, I recvd. this book as a Christmas gift and I just love D.Steel so first chance I got I began to read it. I got partway into the book really enjoying it then got to her first RedCross experience in Russia and put down the book. I'm a young mother and the descriptions she had of the 'disaster' were to graphic for me. I picked up the book again a while later and skimmed past the rest of that 'scene' and continued on with the book. I agree it takes on a bit of Roman Holiday but that's the good part about it. Romance, loyalty, etc. all rolled smoothly for the rest of the book. I ended up liking it but again I'd still skip that Russia incident.
