Meet the Author

Award-winning and bestselling author Lucy Monroe lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, surrounded by a plethora of pets and children (her own, the neighbors, her sisters...). She finds inspiration for her stories everywhere as she is an avid people-watcher. So much so that she disconcerted her husband upon first meeting him when she watched the other dancers as much as she watched him. He thought she wasn't interested...silly man.

She believes there is no stronger emotion than love; that it truly can overcome pain, past rejection and the challenge of finding happiness despite the hardest things life has to offer. She believes in the victorious conclusions found in today's romance. To her, the passionately sensual romance novel is a beautiful expression of the reality of love, packaged in a fantasy readers can enjoy.

When she's not writing, Lucy likes to read--big surprise, that. She can't tell you the latest show going on television, but she loves romantic movies, action adventure and the theater. She adores her family, and is a smatterer when it comes to hobbies...a little of this, a little of that.

Since selling her first book to the Harlequin Presents line in September of 2002, she has sold more than thirty books to three publishers and shows no signs of slowing down in the near future.

Visit her web site to read about all of her books and see flash movies for select releases, including her Harlequin Presents title. She truly loves to hear from readers, and can be reached at lucymonroe@lucymonroe.com.

    This Final in the series - Brilliant!!!

    The Scorsolini Marriage Bargain is brilliant! Passion, Pride, Pain and Persistence all rolled into one making the ending bittersweet to this spectacular ¿Royal Brides' series. I cried and cried......it was just wonderful¿.incredible, really. My favorite of the series, because of Claudio Scorsolini and how he discovered what was always in his heart. What is it about crown princes or sheikhs that attract the reader? These men are powerful, dynamic, handsome as sin and sexy but can't show their true feelings? Well this future heir to the throne learns a very valuable lesson in finally discovering his love, feelings and expressing them to his lovely Therese. Again, Lucy Monroe addresses an issue that must be painful for some women, the medication condition endometriosis. I think it's wonderful how this author has the courage to tackle subjects like these in her books. She not only entertains her readers with stories of passion and promise but educates them as well. Therese Scorsolini is not without fault in the making their marriage rocky. She has a secret and is not willing to share it properly with her husband. She married the heir to the throne knowing that she was in love with him. She finds out that she might not be able to give him the heirs due to having endometriosis. Instead of coming clean, she asks for a divorce. Their marriage suffers and all communication shuts down. Lots of pain and suffering for this royal couple Their journey into finding love and happiness is one you won¿t want to miss. However, I strongly suggest you read the other two books in the series The Prince¿s Virgin Wife and His Royal Love-Child as you will definitely fall in love the Scorsolini men and the women they choose to have in their lives.

    The perfect closure to a great trilogy!

    When Therese married Principe Claudio Scorsolini, she did as a duty to the country. When Principe Claudio married Therese he did it because she was perfect to fulfill the role of a princess and provide him with a heir to the throne. But as always fate intervenes and even though Therese falls in love with her ¿convenient¿ husband she has been keeping a secret from him that can cost them their marriage, and her happiness. When she discovers she cant bear any children she wants to end their marriage and save him the humiliation his brother suffered. Principe Claudio doesn¿t know what had he done to make his dutiful lovely bride reject him constantly, then he learns of her secret and decides to teach her that they belong together against all odds. In this Royal family loyalty, love and passion are important. Lucy Monroe once again writes an emotional tear jerking wonderful story based on real life situations that can doom a relationship to end. She gives her characters the strength to fight tooth and nail and achieve the understanding that leads where true love shines to give us the happily ever after! Another great read you don¿t want to miss!

    A beautiful story

    The Scorsolini Marriage Bargain concludes Lucy Monroe¿s breathtaking Royal Brides Trilogy. _____________ Prince Claudio and Princess Therese appear from the outside to lead a fairy tale life. Their marriage of convenience seems to be everything on can ask for but Princess Therese is hiding a terrible secret that she is convinced will turn Claudio away from her. _____________________ Claudio is taken aback that Therese asks for a divorce. Before he can get to the truth his father the King has a heart attack. They both decide to table the divorce for now. __________________ When Claudio realizes his wife has a serious illness that affects her ability to conceive he is determined not to let her go. His tender loving care gives Therese hope that all might not be lost in their marriage. ____________________ Watching two characters that have married for duty fall in love is a pleasure for every romance reader to cherish. Claudio and Therese have their courtship in reverse. You cannot help to care about each joy and sorrow. ____________ Lucy Monroe is a major talent in any genre she writes. Her books should be on every to buy list and keep shelf.

    Omg

    This was truly the best in the series. Having dealt with secrets, mistrust, miscomunication and on top of all of that endomitriosis and the fear of not being able to concieve an heir. This was truly a great read. I would love hear more from this family. (Grandkids)
