From New York Times bestselling author Tracy Anne Warren comes the conclusion of an enchanting trilogy about three princesses brought together by friendship and fate. This is Princess Ariadne’s story....

On the threshold of receiving her royal inheritance and tired of the London Marriage Mart, Ariadne has decided to defy convention and declare her independence. She will not seek a husband—she will take a lover instead, no matter how notorious she may become.

The prince of a small European kingdom, renowned bachelor Rupert Whyte, is in London to enjoy a last bit of freedom before choosing a wife. When he learns about Ariadne’s scheme to take a lover, he decides he must prevent her from embarking on such a ruinous course.

What begins as a well-deserved reprimand quickly spins out of control when Rupert agrees to give Ariadne a few lessons in lust. But just how far will their passion go? And will their forbidden liaison lead them too far astray to turn back?

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Praise for The Trouble With Princesses
“Warren enchants with this sexy charmer that delivers what readers want: a fast-paced, sensual and fun love story… Simply a pleasure.”—RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars)

Praise for Tracy Anne Warren and previous novels in the Princess Brides trilogy:
"Warren continues her impeccably written Princess Brides trilogy with a thrillingly romantic, intrigue-infused tale of a blue-blooded royal who discovers both her one true love and the inner resources she never imagined she possessed while taking a walk on the wilder side of life." —Booklist
“The second installment in this delightful series has just as much charm and joy as every other one of Warren’s novels. A bit of It Happened One Night mixed with Scottish atmosphere and engaging characters (including an adorable dog) make this read irresistible.” –Romantic Times
“Utterly delightful historical romance.  Daniel is sigh worthy and protective, too delicious for any respectable fan of Scottish heroes to resist….A real pleasure to read.”  –Affaire de Coeur
"With a subtle nod to Roman Holiday, RITA award-winner Warren's latest gracefully written and exquisitely sensual Regency historical is the perfect literary fairy tale for any romance reader."—Booklist (starred review) on The Princess and the Peer
“Tracy Anne Warren is brilliant!”—New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell

    I truly enjoyed the final installment of The Princesses trilogy. This book is about Princess Ariadne and Prince Rupert, the brother of one of the princess' best friends. They had known each other for years, but had barely been able to tolerate one another. Their relationship slowly changes, and they become involved in an affair. When Ariadne is compromised, Rupert insists on marriage, but the princess will not be bound by duty and obligation. Will the two of them be able to recognize and address their true feelings? Of course; this is a romance novel! 3+ steam

    Dumbest story -- ever!

    Well, i guess Tracy Anne Warren can't always write a good one! Shoot...the second in the series was good, but this one is terrible! The story stinks. There is nothing redeeming about either Arie or Rupert. It is a feeble excuse to write explicit sex scenes. And even those aren't good because there is no real or believable relationship between them. I don't even think i can finish the book, and would really love a refund. SAVE YOUR MONEY! DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! UGH!

    Simply Irresistible! Set in 1820, Princess Ariadne has decided

    Simply Irresistible! Set in 1820, Princess Ariadne has decided to take control of her own life and will not marry. Rather, she will find a lover. The trouble is finding one who meets all of her standards. Ariadne is looking for discretion, independence, and lots of passion and chemistry. Prince Rubert Whyte is the older brother of Ariadne’s best friend. When she confides in him that she will seek a lover, he objects based on the scandal it will place upon both Ariadne and his family, but truth be told, Rupert also doesn’t want anyone else to have Ariadne, even though he knows he simply cannot marry her either. Convincing himself that he is doing it for her own good, Rupert offers to be Ariadne’s lover, determined to show her passion while keeping her innocence intact. What he didn’t expect was to find her so passionate, lustful and simply irresistible. As Ariadne and Rupert push the boundaries of innocence, they find that the passion they share for each other may be too much to resist. As life events occur that make things increasingly difficult for them, Ariadne and Rupert must decide if what they have can stand the tests of time or if it was just a fleeting, passionate affair that must end for the sake of honor and duty.

    An outstanding, steamy and suspenseful novel by Tracy Anne Warren—A must read for lovers of historical romance! This novel offers a well written plot with fantastic characters and enough drama and suspense to keep you guessing about the outcome. I simply adored both Ariadne’s and Rubert’s characters. Rubert’s character was suave, romantic and honorable, the type of man every woman pictures their ideal man as being! Ariadne’s impulsive and fragile nature added a counterbalance to Rubert’s carefully calculated actions. There were so many great interactions between Rubert and Ariadne, I had a very difficult time putting this book down. Even though this novel is book 3 in her Princess Brides Romance Series, it’s an excellent stand-alone read. I look forward to going back and catching up on the other two books in this series! Well worth the time spent reading this book. A very, very enjoyable read! Well done, Ms. Warren!
