    I came across this book randomly and boy, was I ever glad to give it a try. The synopsis drew me in and the introduction had me hooked. The synopsis provides an accurate description about this book, so I won't rehash it. However, I will say

    I loved the characters and the way the story unfolds. The book is very well-written. I love how the scenes are vividly describe. I was able to picture everyone going on and I loved it when authors can pull that off, making me feel like I'm there with the characters. This book had a great combination of fluff, angst, and humor. The only thing I don't like about this book is I feel like their story isn't complete.

    An epilogue at the end would have made me feel content with the ending rather than the two words "The end." For a second there, I thought the second book would be a continuation of their story, but instead it's about Massimo, Stefano's brother. Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to the second book.

    — I know these two disclosures sent a lot of you screaming over the horizon. But I'm not politically correct, and I like what I like. So … if you're still with me…

    I had fun helping Nicole plot these romances, and I'm having a great time reading them. So far I've read CHRISTMAS WITH A PRINCE (novella, I read that first bc it was Christmas) and SCANDAL WITH A PRINCE. SCANDAL is set in Barcelona, Spain, in a luxury hotel where Megan and Prince Stefano (he's from an island nation in the Mediterranean) meet after 10 years. Passion re-ignites, he discovers he has a daughter, he decides they should marry (I love a badly-botched marriage proposal) and … it was quite a journey making my way thru to the end. SCANDAL is like an expanded secret baby HQ Presents, about one third longer with a more complex relationship and fuller characters. The hero and heroine are two successful, mature adults in a difficult situation. They act intelligently (mostly) on the information they have and by the end they deserve their happily ever after.

    (an aside: these sheiks/princes/billionaires are great fun in fiction. If I was actually involved with one, some changes would be made to the arrogance, etc, altho I'd be okay with the making love over and over.)

    (Aside #2: Yes, I'm already in a relationship. I've been married since the earth's crust cooled, and my husband is the best guy ever. See the stone circle he created —>

    The people in the story were well written, with all the flaws and strengths that go with being human. Even the Prince's mother and father, who were duty to the royal line above all else, were well written. Prince Stefano and Megan were so busy trying to be fair to each other that they produced misunderstanding after misunderstanding as they tried to re-connect fully. I liked that Megan had worked hard and done so well for herself professionally and raised her daughter well. She had strong family

I liked that Megan had worked hard and done so well for herself professionally and raised her daughter well. She had strong family support (as much as was possible) and was also independent in her own way. Anna, their daughter was fun to read about too. Another thing that was nice to read was the growth that Stefano and Megan both had to go through, not only ten years ago but now also.

    I was a bit confused by the ending of this book, it seemed rathe abrupt and unfinished.

    There definitely could've been more to this story considering a main reason she didn't want to be with him was because she would never fit in with his family of the public eye, and neither of those instances occur.

    They never meet his family

    They never have to face the public together

    Those were the main main parts of where everything stemmed from and nothing ever happened.

    It felt like half a story

    I loved this book!! It's a very well written royal romance, sweet and hot. I needed something like this after my last dark reads.

    This is the story of

    a 32 years old American girl and the 32 years old Italian

    10 years ago in a volunteering mission in Venezuela the 22 years old Megan met the sexy prince Stefano Barrali who was also volunteering in building a water pipeline. They spent a lot of time together and had a one night stand the last night of the mission, a beautiful night that neither of them will ever forget. Even though they had feelings for each but didn't realize what kind of feelings exactly they had to part ways, she had to finish her college in Minnesota and Stefano had his royal and military duties in his kingdom.

    One month later Megan learned she was pregnant with Stefano's child. She tried to contact him for 4 months through his secretary but he never called back . Two months later Megan read about his engagement with an aristocrat lady. That put Megan's atempts to inform him to a stop. She understood she wasn't important to him, that for him what they had in Venezuela was just a fling and nothing more, surely he wasn't in love like her.

    So Megan raised her child alone, graduated and build a career in business management, moved to Barcelona with her daughter Anna who looked so much like her father and worked in a new hotel project .

    And she never would have expected to meet the man who marked her life at the launch night of the hotel.

    The chemistry between them was still there, the lust and the passion even stronger than before and her feelings were in a real choas.

    Stefano couldn't believe his eyes. He thought he would never see Megan again, he thought he had lost her for ever. He understood his feelings for her too late after Venezuela mission and his failed engagement to Arianna and then was too late to contact her.

    Now she was an executive, still single, mature and more sexy than ever and he couldn't take his eyes away from her.

    He wanted her badly in his bed again. No women had ever make him feel like he felt with her. Less he knew, Megan had news for him....shocking life changing news.

    The things won't be easy for these two. But I loved the story development, I loved Megan, Stefano and Anna.

    The only thing is I would have loved an epilog. Or at least their story to be a couple of chapters longer after the moment they were finally together as couple. I think the end has cut short. I wanted to see a marriage, to see how the scandal will go with the press and how Anna and Megan's life as princesses would have been since that was the main worry of the story...so those parts felt unfulfilled.

    The writer told me though that we could see glimpses of them and also their marriage in the other books of the series that are about Stefano's siblings.

    This story was lovely so I recommend it.

    What looked like a fairy-tale story for little girls turned out to be a really nice romance book. Sometimes a simple dreamy book is all you need.

  •  Anna (Wicked Book Blog)

    Funny and nice with a lot of sweet in between. Quite detached from reality but what one should expect from a title like that one.

    I'd say this one is a solid 3.5.

    Interesting plot, likeable characters, but the ending fell a bit flat for me. As I got this free on the Kindle store a while ago, I definitely have no regrets.

    I have been digesting this a little more since I finished this book last night. Actually, it keeps popping into my head in a very disturbing way. I had originally given it three stars but as the story is causing me to feel distressed and disturbed today, getting nauseous each time I think of it, I needed to revise my rating. There were many things, other than what I write below, that was troubling and a lot of angst for reasons that had made any sense...at least to me. Such big deals were made out of things that were small and insignificant and not enough was made of situations that were huge and they were just poo-pooed away. The storyline was not one I cared for, lacking something important.

    This is about a Prince and the woman he loved and left ten years ago, but it was too long for the content contained within, too slow-moving, and too drawn-out for my liking. I like my books to be a little more concise and I can do without the unimportant filler in which there was a lot. I felt some of the scenes were overdone and wordy. Fifty or so pages could have been cut with the story not weaving around so much that you lost focus. To put it bluntly, I just didn't like it.

    I was also disappointed when the Prince found out the depths of his parents' secret manipulations and control that were the direct cause of him to lose ten years with his child that he knew nothing about, and the woman he loved. They had instructed (or threatened) the staff not to put any calls through and to withhold the information from him if a young woman, Megan, tried to reach him. His parents had decided who they wanted him to marry and were hell-bent on having their own way regardless that the Prince did not love the woman they were so determined to hook him up with. The disappointment for me was that he seemed to lack any real anger towards them for all they caused him to lose and he should have been much more upset over their trickery which made it infuriating. In fact, he was very quick to say I forgive you before they had a chance to ask for his forgiveness. I believe in respect, but his parent's deserved a dressing down, for him to at least expressed, 'Do you realize your manipulations cost me ten years of my child's life, cost me ten years with the only woman who has ever held my heart.' They needed to know how much their manipulations had affected his adult life and the scars it left behind and how the marriage they tried to force on him did permanent damage not only to him and the ex-fiance but especially our heroine who bore his child alone and raised her by herself for ten years.

    Megan took that super-quick engagement as a sign that he wanted nothing to do with her and how could he have been intimate with her yet go home to become engaged within a few days. It was a sure sign that he didn't care for her and was avoiding all of her phone calls. How dare their control and manipulation cause a 22-year-old man to lose so much. It was a situation that made me very angry and lowered what I had planned to rate this book. I would have felt so much better if he had spoken up but by not doing so, it caused me to think less of him and gave me a strong sense that he didn't care for her the way he claimed. It was injustice pure and simple.

    I consider this not at all worth the read and as upset as it has made me today, I regret reading it.
