    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    I actually read this series out of order (read book one, then book three, then book two), but this was still a fun, fast read that only took me about two hours to finish.<BR/><BR/>This installmant of the royal Baranov family from the country of Alaska centers around Princess Alexandria Baranov, the sister who saved her father's life at the end of THE ROYAL TREATMENT. Suffering from insomnia, nightmares, and a wee bit of paranoia after that event, King Al (along with the royal doctor, Dr. Pohl), decide that Alexandria could use some time away.<BR/><BR/>What ensues is Alex quickly arriving in North Dakota, even more quickly falling in lust with Dr. Sheldon "Shel" Rivers, lots of hot sex, royal misunderstandings, groveling, faster-than-the-speed-of-light courtships, and more sex.<BR/><BR/>If you like MJD's stories, you'll like THE ROYAL PAIN. If you want a bunch of character development, deep meaning, a lack of swearing, and the answers to the meaning of life, you won't find it within these pages.<BR/><BR/>All in all, a fun piece of fluff!

    A royal riot

    MaryJanice Davidson continues the tales of the outrageous royal family the Baranov¿s of Alaska. __________ Princess Alexandria needs to get away from it all. She is still having nightmares from the aborted kidnapping attempt on her younger brother. A goodwill trip to North Dakota to visit the local aquarium is just the thing she needs. But the head Marine Biologist isn¿t interested in escorting some spoiled princess around the center. __________ Dr. Shel Rivers just wants to work in his lab. Doesn¿t have time for rich royalty. Alex isn¿t at all what he was expecting. She is smart, feisty and quick-witted and the sexiest thing he has ever scene. Shel is enchanted and determined to help sleep anyway he can. ___________ The Royal Pain is a laugh out loud good time. This isn¿t your normal straight-laced royalty. Alex and Shel literally burn up the sheets with their chemistry. But they also connect on a deeper level. I hope we hear more from this fun and sarcastic family soon.

    Highly Recommend

    Very funny quick read. Should be rated R for language and a sexual content. But everything is told in such a hilarious way, even the language makes it funny.

    humorous romantic fantasy

    In the Kingdom of Alaska, Princess Alexandra Baranov has problems sleeping ever since family enemies tried to kill her father and abduct her youngest brother though she tried to intercede (see THE ROYAL TREATMENT). Now her midnight wanderings have become tabloid fodder and worry her family especially when she faints from a lack of sleep. In fact only her infant nephew enables her to sleep for a few hours for she is always on vigil to stop intruders from harming her family since the Devon incident. --- To get her out of the Sitka palace, the family ponders why not Minot so they send Alexandra to North Dakota on the pretense of furthering American-Alaskan relations. She reluctantly visits the North Dakota Institute for Sea Life where marine biologist Dr. Shel Rivers conducts research. Following a foot introduction, her Royal pain in the butt demands he waits on her when all he wants is to be left alone to do his work that is before he tries to shut her up with a kiss or two, which she returns. What lab work Shel asks himself as all he wants to do is to keep kissing her royal prettiness. --- No one does humorous romantic fantasy better than MaryJanice Davidson does. The Baranov sequel is a fabulous gender battle as Shel concludes that the royal pain is his bane. The opening intro summarizes the tale as Harry from When Harry Met Sally discusses having sex with someone named Sheldon and never slows down until the final kiss. Fans of zany alternate history tales will appreciate Ms. Davidson who brings a wacky freshness to the sub-genre. --- Harriet Klausner
