Overview

In a world nearly identical to ours, the North won the Civil War, Ben and JLo got married, and everyone dresses well to attend the Grammys. Oh, and Russia never sold Alaska to the U.S. Instead, Alaska is a rough, beautiful country ruled by a famously eccentric royal family, including oldest daughter, Princess Alexandria, whose acid wit and bad case of insomnia have turned her into a tabloid darling, a palace problem, and overall. . .

The Royal Pain

Marine biologist Dr. Shel ("Never Sheldon") Rivers has a problem. Some princess expects him to wait on her, hand and dimpled foot. His boss is taken with the royal redhead—brunette, whatever, it's not like he keeps track of that stuff—and nobody realizes that he just wants to be left alone in his lab. All alone. All the time. Weekends, holidays. . .it's all good.

Now here's Miss Royalpants, insisting that he escort her around the marine institute, explain what he's doing, kiss her until her toes curl. . .no, wait, that was his idea. She's not even apologetic about being born into a royal family! Says it's his problem to overcome, not hers. Which leaves him with one option: to kiss her again. And again. And. . .

So she's nothing like he expected. In fact, Dr. Rivers can see that this fantastic, exasperating woman has problems no princess should ever have to deal with. And he has an idea to help her get some much-needed sleep. Of course, it involves getting very, very tired beforehand, but if she's up to it, then so is he. . .

In this delightfully madcap sequel to The Royal Treatment, the Baranov family is back and as unpredictable as ever, and a prickly princess and cranky Ph.D. are about to discover that love conquers attitude every time. . .

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.

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.

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.

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.

All in all, a fun piece of fluff!

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.

Not good.

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.
