It was Alexander's request that brought Eve, along with her theatrical troupe, back to Cordina. She still took h

I have been an avid reader of this author's books for many years. In all honesty I didn't particularly care for this one. The main characters resolved their personal conflict much too soon for my taste and the romance part just seemed cheesy after that. The previous royal assassination attempt just wasn't explained enough for my taste...although I didn't realize this wasn't a stand alone book but book 2 of a series and I had missed reading the beginning of the Cordina story. The ending didn't co ...more

gostei bem mais desta história, pela força da protagonista, pelos protagonistas...

5 stars for another ROYAL FAIRY TALE.

His Royal Highness Alexander Robert Armand De Cordina, heir to the throne is very near to losing his patience, the control on his emotions and his heart. The very three things he has been careful with all his life.

But Eve is driving him insane ever since she walked into his life and that Christmas ball 7 years ago.

Muito melhor que o primeiro livro da série. Apesar do Alexandre ser um príncipe herdeiro, extremamente devotado as regras e tradições. Tenho pavor as regras e tradições da realeza.

Entretanto, o amor que ele sente por Eve e tão profundo, que o torna tão vulnerável, e por isso humaniza tanto, que há momentos que até esquecemos que ele é um príncipe, pois ele se torna apenas um homem apaixonado.

Por mais que não goste de livros com p

Command Performance is the 2nd book in the series about Cordina's Royal Family but can be read as a stand alone. It's actually the first book I read of the series and it completely hooked me in.

The book reads almost like a fairy tale. There's a prince and a very normal girl who comes to his castle. There's danger and there's a love story.

Nora Roberts does a good job of making the heroine likeable. Eve is no Sleeping Beauty, simply waiting for a prince to kiss her so she can live again. She's a w
Like the last one, just a cute little romance. I liked it a bit better than the first, possibly because I already knew the characters, possibly because they didn't have the amnesia plot-line which got a little irritating in the first one. Also, I pegged the killed the first time he appeared in the book vs. the last one where I was pretty sure, but kept questioning myself.

Anyway. Light, fun, good sex, a few laughs, and who doesn't want to dream of being a princess even though we know what negativ

It’s interesting seeing Eve again and in a strange relationship with Alexander when we all thought she would end up with the playboy. She was very important on the end of Affaire Royale, by helping save Brie and getting the family attention.

She was just a teenager than and now ten years after her first visit to the palace, she’s back and very successful business women as a request of the Alexander to help children, impressive right?

I loved this story even more than the first. This is the story of Alex and Eve, I loved reading how they tried to resist the attraction but fell in love anyway. With Deboque still using others to get the royal family they have to be on the guard as the attacks start to happen. With the tension between them and the threat looming it was a great book that I struggled to put down. Cannot wait to continue in the series and see what happens to Bennett. Definitely a series I would recommend xxx

In Eve Hamilton's youth, His Royal Highness Alexander de Cordina played the part of a fairy-tale prince. But seven years ago Eve had learned that its villains were undeniably real, and put her childhood dreams behind her. Now Alexander's request brought Eve, along with her theatrical troupe, back to Cordina. She still took his breath away, but it soon became clear that the dangers wouldn't remain in the past -- and neither would the desires.

On the last day of our church yard sale anything you can cram into a Trader Joe's bag is $3.00, so I hit the book department and bought a bag o'books This was one of them. It's an old Nora Roberts, from her genre romance days. It was very predicable and a little cheesy but there's a fencing scene that is very Morticia and Gomez.
I liked this one better, and only cause damn i love a stiff necked broody alpha. Alex was all of that and more and when he let his passion loose YUM..

more villianry, bombs and shootings this time,

Prince Alexander is next in line for the crown. He has to maintain control of his life and his emotions. Long time friend of the family and theater producer,Eve, is invited to put on four performance in Alex's kingdom. She believes he has alway disapproved of her, but that is not true. There is someone out to punish the royal family and would love to use Eve as a pawn. I really liked Alexander, I could see him exactly in my minds-eye. Eve was likable too, if not just a little too stubborn. There ...more

As usual, a romance by Nora Roberts include the too-pent-up suspense, and the romance, of course. In the second book, the eldest Bisset, Alexander summons Eve Hamilton, the best friend of his younger brother, Bennett. To be honest, I had no idea how Alexander asked Eve to come back to Cordina and not now that Ben and Eve are just friends. The chemistry between the heiress and the prince was fun to read about, and the suspense in the book was little unlike the first one. Anyhow, it was good.

As much as I like NR romances, this one took me awhile to read. Now an adult, Eve returns to Cordina, and she encounters the next king, Alexander. This time though, Alex is as entranced with Eve as she has ever been with him. He hires her and her theatrical troupe to perform in Cordina, four different plays. While there, their old nemesis rises his ugly head and strikes where the royal family is most vulnerable, with Eve and her troupe.

Buku ke dua seri kerajaan cordina ini sama menariknya dengan buku seri pertama.

Bercerita tentang Alex, atau Pangeran Alexander, putra mahkota kerajaan Cordina yang jatuh cinta pada Eve Hamilton. Seorang wanita Amerika yang sangat mandiri. Dilema antara tugas kerajaan yang diemban oleh Alex, cerita cinta antara keduanya serta ancaman penculikan dan penyerangan dari musuh kerajaan menjadikan buku ini sangat menarik.

This was a good story that i really liked but it, like Affair royale, was in need of some editing. Despite that, i really liked how Roberts expanded on Alex's character a lot after the last one. I love their relationship and am excited to read the next one.
Lovely story. I really enjoyed meeting Alexander. The story flowed well and the characters were well developed. I enjoyed the little mystery and suspense and Nora did a good job concluding the story but leaving room for Bennet's story to come next.

This was better than book 1 in my opinion. It definitely had more feeling than the first, it was also dealing with a more intense main lead. The female lead was strong and the sense of loyalty and love was great. Enjoyed this thoroughly.

We are back to the Cordina country which I really think is Monaco. Alexander is wooing Eve. Kind of reminds me of Grace Kelley. This was another sweet romance from Ms. Roberts. Recommended for people who love princes and princesses.

Cheesy delicious stupid romance.

I loved the characters, their chemistry, and the pure indulgence of such a princess next door type story.

Can't recall how many times I have re-read this little piece of dreamland. lol.

Best book of the series, i believe. I love Nora brings her characters together and gives us a glimpse of all the things that had happened in the mean time. I loved Alex and Eve. There was so much chemistry and love.

Mais uma pequena grande surpresa. Outro livrinho que não é apenas uma história cor de rosa, de príncipes, princesas e fadas, mas sim um romance à Nora Roberts, com intriga e mistério. Muito bem.
