Hero was pretty much an ass. This story revolves around a prince who can't marry his divorced mistress. He refuses to recognize that he loves her. So he is planning to leave her behind and return to rule his kingdom and eventually marry a princess. Nothing really new here. Biggest problem for me was he was the heir to the richest kingdom in the world but managed to live incognito for nearly 20 years? Not buying it.
Emily is a common woman who loves prince Marco will all her heart. Their affair is passionate and dreamy but when she discovers that Marco is a royal prince and so he must marry a suitable wife she is devastated. According to his grandfather Emily is not queen material since she is a divorcee (a virgin divorcee).

Marco is ready to do the right thing and go back to claim his throne but he cannot forget Emily and how he feels for her. Emily's pregnancy complicates things even further especially wh

Esperaba mas de la historia, a pesar de ser una novela de harlequin.
No estuvo mal para pasar el rato.

This series is definitely a contender for WPXI!!
i was thouroughly disgusted by emily's clingy attitude. she was incredibly pathetic and i felt sorry for her. she had no self-respect where marco was concerned! the man was ruthless, cruel and abusive. abusive psychologically ! the things he got away saying to her! i was horribly appalled as he suggested she married a noble man so he cud keep his son and at the same time her as well, for entertainment. i cud never forgive such garbage!
Had a hard time reading this without getting sick, especially with the 'R' word looming waaay to close.
too many monologues...I couldn't really click in with the author's writing style:(
Overall, an ok read.
Hard to read. Story was to mixed up with past and present.
Bueno que le hacemos me gusto pero es una novela rosa muy rosa o.O y muy predecible pero Marco es tan irresistiblemente tonto que una cae rendida a sus encantos, ademas de que este libro es el abre bocas a una serie de novelas cortas y rosas que me gustan mucho
This was an ok read -- the story made sense and it was readable. I don't love the "won't marry a mistress" trope, so I was already inclined not to love this one. Still, it wasn't terrible, and there was some good angst, so overall it was ok.
*Cue childish voice* EWWW. THE HEROINE SUCKS.

But really though. She gets on my nerves. She's a cry-baby - a spineless, naive fool who has nothing going for herself.
Another good entertaining story from Penny Jordan. She can always be relied on to tell a good story in an entertaining way and a little bit of a different twist.
I don't know why I tried. The story was weak and characters never developed beyond the most basic human level.
I didn't care for this book, It took me to the middle to actually get into the book.
