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.

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

Boring...boring...boring...Oh, am I being redundant? Well, that's what you will get when reading this book. I love Danielle Steel's writings, but it is hard for me to believe she wrote this. I have never skimmed over parts of a book until I read this one because it was so painful to be reading about the same things over and over that were already mentioned in the last 5 chapters. I made myself finish this book believing there had to be more to the story but was very disappointed with the all to predicatable ending.

I like Danielle Steel but this romance suffers from a number of critical flaws. The repetition is the biggest problem, which keep the plot from moving forward. The story itself is predictable, without depth and quickly becomes boring.

Very predictable. If you removed the repetitious paragraphs, what you have left is less then a short story.

I believe I have read every one of Danielle Steel's books and I must say this is the worst ever. I did everything in my power not to just turn the tape off. If it were not for my long commute and paying attention to traffic I know this book would be one that I never finished. Besides being redundant it was slow moving and boring. I found myself really disliking Christianna. This is not the caliber of writing I am use to.

her books are like kricits lulling you to sleep its amszing how you can strech so little so far.....for me it was just a waist of money.

I used to really enjoy Danielle Steel's books and would wait anxiously for the next one. Her last few novels have had so much repetition she is taking a 25 page novel and stretching it immensely. She is relying on her name to sell and readers, such as myself, will wait and get it at the library for the next one, instead of spending the money.

Hello my friends I am Morgan Freeman (a.k.a. God) and you should not RP in the book reviews. Make a website where people can freely role play. By the way you can access websites on the Nook. ~MF
