Overview

Born to a royal family, Prince Nicolai has grown up with the knowledge that he will be heir to the throne and to his people's hearts. Having suffered the early and painful death of his first wife, the young prince agrees to an arranged marriage to fulfill an ancient statute that the heir be married by his twenty-sixth birthday.

He and his new bride, Shelby, live together as strangers for many weeks, but in time the prince draws closer to her. Yet it never occurs to Shelby, a commoner who married for the sake of her country but who secretly loves him deeply, that the prince's affection could truly turn toward her. By the time he comes to love her, she has walled off her heart to protect herself, and he must tenderly scale that wall.

This moving story of surprising love awakened by committed faithfulness belongs on the shelf of every reader who loves Lori's writing.

    needs more depth and development

    I downloaded this book since it was recommended by B&N via the Nook since I like Francine Rivers. I hate to say this because I really wanted to like this book and I try to keep my reviews as constructive criticism, but this book could have been written by a high schooler. Although I'm a Christian, I was a bit put off by the random scriptures thrown in and it was a bit preachy. The relationship between the prince and princess never got developed and I never grew to care about either one. The sexual innuendo was way too vague. I assumed they had not had sex yet, but then in the next chapter, she's pregnant. Huh? I at least wanted a romantic first true kiss scenario. No, I didn't expect some lust ridden escapade written out, but I really had no clue they consummated their marriage until the book told me she got pregnant. The characters were a bit one dimensional and two main folks were Mary Sue and Gary Stu.

    Wonderful Read!

    I really had fun reading this book. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next and found that I couldn't put it down. I couldn't image marrying a complete stranger! Shelby took on the role wonderfully though. She was such a good hearted character and you can't help but love her. It was neat to see them grow and get to know each other. I would recommend this book to everyone! Very worth your time.

    Good read

    Shelby and Nikolai marry and start to get to know one another. The first book I read by this author. Found it to be a sweet and kind of cute read. A little sad near the end. Pretty good read.

    Great read! I read this in one evening and found myself headed to bed around 2:00 am. I couldn't put it down! If you like faith based reads that warm your heart, this is a book for you.

    I loved this book. It was so romantic and a fantastic story. Lori Wick is one of my favorite authors. I love that I can read a romance novel without it getting too graphic. Her books are very easy reads.
