    A fine romance

    In California Mia Marcelli is used to sleeping alone ever since her beloved Diego died several years ago. So when she awakens to find a man in her bed she threatens to harm him as her brother is a SEAL. Her two grandmothers charge into the room with Grandma Tessa holding a fire poker and Grammy M a rolling pin. He says to her let us talk over breakfast insisting he is alive and is Rafael, Crown Prince of Calandria.-------------------- He explains his death was a fake but he also hides the reason for his reappearance from her and her Marcelli clan because he knows they will strongly object that he has come to take home their offspring Danny, his four year old second in line to the throne. He even pretends not knowing he sired a son with her when she was in Calandria. If he gets the kid back to his kingdom, Mia has no legal rights there unlike here in California. As he continues his sham, he falls in love with the commoner making his duty feel shameful.----------------------------- The final Marcelli tale is an interesting contemporary romance starring a likable courageous heroine and a royal with an agenda that makes him seem despicable. Thus the audience will dislike Rafael for staging his death though he has good cause to do so and for his efforts to abduct the child. Still this is a well written contemporary tale in which the audience will be spellbound as the Prince must choose between love and duty.---------------- Harriet Klausner

    Marcelli Princess....an excellent to the series!

    I'm so glad I was one of those readers and fan of Susan's Mallery who asked for Mia's story and I wasn't disappointed! I loved the Marcelli series and Mia's story was no exception. It was delightful, entertaining, shed a few tears. However, what I most loved about this book was it brought out Susan Mallery's charm and sense of humor! Mia plus her sisters taking on a crown Prince? If you've read the series, then one would appreciate this aspect and the family dynamics. That's the appeal of the series and this particular book.......Mia, her son, the crown prince and the Marcelli family. As for lessons, there are many to be learned like what's important in life, what does love really mean to a person? What can respect, love and determination bring into a relationship? Not to mention, family values, traditions and holding each member close and dear to each of them. The book for me was a wonderful ending. I thought Mia was strong, fierce, determined and passionate. As for Crown Prince Rafael, he was brought to his knees by Mia and her family! Loved it! Again, Susan Mallery has delivered a wonderful story and series and one I shall long remember! Thank you Susan.

    Huge Disappointment

    I have read the previous 4 books in this series and loved them all. This book however, was a huge disappointment.

    In previous books Mia was young and her actions were appropriate for a young girl/woman who was two years ahead of her peers in school and work. By the time the fifth book takes place, she should have grown up, but sadly did not. In all of the challenges with Rafael, it had to be her way or the highway. Rafael learned from his mistakes and tried to make up for his previous misdeeds. Mia remained a stubborn child. At one point I was hoping Rafael would leave Mia heartbroken; it was what she deserved.

    The one bright spot with this book was the catchup with characters from the previous books.

    Don't waste your time on this book; stop after book 4.

    Did not meet expectations

    First, I am a Susan Mallery fan. I discovered here late but love the Marcelli and the Buchanan series. I had high hopes for this one but the plot just failed. The character Rafael was too unlikeable and even when redeemed his instant falling for Mia was unbelievable. I couldn't really buy into their love story. This book also lacked the intensity of the Marcelli Bride. I feel like it was just thrown together at the last minute. That said, the other characters were true to form. Wished it was a better book.

    Great Series

    Susan Mallery really out did her self on this series. I loved all the twists and turns in this book. A lot of her books are very predictable, but this one kept you on the edge of your seat. Great read and finish to this series.

    Wasn't a fan of this one

    Susan Mallery is one of my favorite authors. But it seems like she always has one book in the series I don't like and this time it was this one. Prince Rafael was annoying until about...I don't know like the last 50 pages of the book. I wanted to scream every time he said my son is the heir to the Calandrian throne. That phrase is said A LOT and it got really annoying. I'll still like reading her books but this one I was not impressed by.
