She's been a proper princess—but she wants to rebel.

After the death of her fiancé, Princess Madeleine knows a loveless, arranged marriage awaits her. She's resigned to her fate until she meets her intended husband. Crown Prince Enrique is gorgeous, but he comes on way too strong, says the wrong things, and fumbles with apologies. He's more court jester than Prince Charming. How can she marry him?

Enrique might be self-centered and lack social skills, but he's trying to do better—for himself, his country, and his future wife. Despite their royal union being a political necessity, he wants his marriage with the captivating Madeleine to be a love match. He's willing to do whatever it takes to woo her. How hard can it be to win his princess bride's heart?

Nearly impossible, he discovers, because Madeleine seems unwilling—or unable—to give him her heart. On their wedding day, instead of exchanging vows, will the royal couple say goodbye?

The Proper Princess by Melissa McClone Princess Madeleine and Crown Prince Enrique are the main characters. Enrigue is not comfortable talking to people so he is always making mistakes in the way he is talking. Madeline is still in love with her dead fiancée. They start spending time together and getting to know each other and they fall in love. I really enjoyed this book. I had a hard time putting this book down. it was so good. I was given a complimentary copy of the book. and I wanted to do a review for the book.

I love this series and this is my favorite!!! I'll admit I didn't care for Enrique in The Perfect Princess until the end and I barely cared for him. It is two years later and I love him - not romantically - he has grown and changed so much. He is such a caring and selfless man. Another arranged marriage and with the Proper Princess - Madeleine. She is still grieving her dead finance. Loved how their relationship changed and Enrique was finally able to love and be loved. I highly recommend this book and this will be one I keep and read again (I don't do that very often). I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I was so excited to get Enrique's story after he lost his bride to his brother. Now Enrique is to marry Madeline in an arranged marriage. Madeline lost her heart to Louie, her fiance five years ago. She felt like she could not open her heart again. Enrique also felt he was incapable of loving another person. Soon Enrique falls in love with Madeline but now he needs to find away into Madeline's heart. A delightful story of two lost souls that find love in each other. Loved the banter between the two. A sweet romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. This is the third book in the series but can be read as a stand alone.

I didn’t like Enrique in the last book. He was stuffy, said the wrong things, and planned an awful wedding for Jules without her input. But he shows in this book that a person can change. He still puts his foot in his mouth, but he is much more compassionate and he notices what Madeleine likes and makes her happy like daisies and chocolate. I loved that he enjoyed gardening. He was so sweet with the heart transplant child Reggie from the hospital who gave him a bottle of antiseptic after Enrique told him he was afraid of germs. Madeleine spent much of the book pining for her lost love Louie, so I wasn’t sure if she would ever open her heart to the possibility of loving Enrique especially after he kept putting his foot in his mouth. There were plenty of funny, sweet, and romantic moments in the royalty marriage of convenience romance.

Who knew Enrique was so likable? Enrique was introduced in a previous story and was not very likable. He has made a great effort at changing himself. And he is an awesome prince. Madeleine was a princess doing her duty. Thinking she had already lost the love of her life, she was doing her duty as a princess to marry a prince to help her country. But Enrique and Madeleine seem to bond quickly. The story was sweet and the characters likable. I've liked all the stories in the series but each story stands on it's own. I received an advance copy of the book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A Perfect Match!! I started to love Enrique in the previous story and I am soooo glad he finally got his HEA!! Madeleine was a perfect match for Enrique and he was a perfect match for her. Both were at a time of change in their lives and they managed to help each other in different and important ways. I loved the honesty and open communication they both gave each other and I could feel that with every word written. I HIGHLY recommend this story to all those that believe love happens when you least expect it to.

Madeleine and Enrique had an interesting marriage arrangement in The Proper Princess, book three in Melissa McClone’s Her Royal Duty series. After the death of her fiancé and first love, Princess Madeleine was resigned to the fact that she would end up having an arranged marriage; possibly being used as a pawn to save her country. When she meets her handsome intended she wonders what she had agreed to. Crown Prince Enrique did not give off a good first impression in meeting Madeleine. He was way too strong, said the wrong things, forgot to think before talking and fumbled with apologies; being more court jester than Prince Charming. Enrique tries to present a confident prince but he still has a way to go. He might be less self-centered but he is trying to do better for his country, for himself, and for his future wife. Enrique knows that Madeleine might not love him right now, if ever, but he will do whatever he can to woo her and maybe win her heart; at least get her to like him. As often happens when two people are so overwhelmed with feelings and caring for one another, they forget to talk before making assumptions. Before Madeleine and Enrique can have their happy ever after they must accept that they care for each other, be honest with each other, and communicate. Ms. McClone wrote a wonderfully sweet and moving story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Madeleine and Enrique a chance for happiness, love and a future together. I found myself falling in love with Madeleine and Enrique as I got to know them better and understand their insecurities and needs. I highly recommend this sweet book, The Proper Princess. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

A heart never forgets a story and mine felt like it had been here before. The Proper Princess is a compilation of schoolgirl fantasy and mature adult heartache. McClone flexes her strongest muscle with an emotional sonnet inspired by a childhood fairytale that blossoms into a captivating, yet painful reality. Madeline and Enrique are living on a cloud that could collapse at any moment. Can hope help to break their fall?
