I really enjoyed this one. Great character development and a believable hea.

Maisey Yates' writing style is superb. The characters are brought to life, they felt so real with all their complexity & their insecurities. They have layers. What you see is not what you get. Rodriguez is quite the playboy but underneath the charm & the easy flirt, Carlotta - and the reader - can glimpse his bleakness & his darkness due to years of neglect & abuse. Carlotta has always put a leash on her passionate nature has always been the perfect princess, till one mi

Okay so a couple of changes, the book title has been changed apparently to Princess From The Shadows, now I'm not too sure if that's because this is a UK version or North American because it was originally called Princess Behind The Shadows, or something along those lines. Anyways, like I said, not too sure!

I liked this book greatly, which is saying a lot because I have some truly humongous issues with a lot of new books out there today which are being released. The newer ones seem to fail to ca

The hero of this book is an out and out rogue/playboy right to the core. I didn't think I would like him- I didn't want to like him in fact -but I couldn't help it, I did! And that is mainly down to the strength of the writing, in particular the characterisation.

This is a story that is wholly centred around it's characters and really gives us, the reader, a chance to feel everything they are feeling and experience their journey with them. Both the hero and heroine have "issues" but thro
I enjoyed this nice little palate cleanser after a tougher read. It was different in how urbane the hero was and how he was so accepting of the heroine's history. There was plenty of angst and caring for each other and overcoming their pasts. There was no spinelessness or asshatery, so it was a fun and different read.
Heroína imbancable. Héroe estúpido. Yo me aguanto bastante bien las historias de Maisey Yates, pero sinceramente no tolero a sus protagonistas. En este caso, sentí que me vendieron (mal) una historia que pretendía ser romance. Ella, princesa, se enamora mágicamente de la poll** de un tipo durante ocho fines de semana. En ese lapso se enamoró, se quiso casar y hasta concibió un hijo peero luego se da cuenta de que el tipo este era casado y desde allí su historia es resentimiento con los hombres ...more

The story was good, sweet, the characters well developed and flawed like "normal" people and overall, I enjoyed it. Seeing Carlotta and Rodriguez's love form and grow over time was great, but the story still fell short for me. I guess I was expecting something, Luca's biological father to try to force himself into their lives, Carlotta's sister to reveal that she had fallen for Gabriel...something. Even the "dramatic" call from Carlotta's mother had nothing to add... wow... a scandal about ...more

Princess From The Shadows will have you captivated from the very start; A passionate tale about new beginnings and second chances.

What sets this book apart for me are the life like characters in Prince Rodriguez and Princess Carlotta.

I think Maisey did an amazing job bringing her characters to life…. As a reader you are emotionally vested in Rodriguez and Carlotta, ….. you share their ups and downs and cheer them on towards their HEA.

I’m glad that Maisey choose

Prinz Rodriguez sollte eigentlich ihre Schwester heiraten doch die ist durchgebrannt mit einem anderen. Prinzessin Carlotta folgt dem Befehl ihres Vaters und verlobt sich mit Prinz Rodriguez. Beide fühlen sich voneinander angezogen und Prinz Rodrguez bekommt nicht nur eine schöne Frau an seiner Seite, sondern auch gleich einen Sohn.....

Mal wieder was schönen leichtes gebraucht und ein schönes modernes Märchen gelesen. Sie war von Anfang fesselnd und spannend. Ich fühlte mich als ob ich in einem

I really liked the hero and heroine. The hero's character arc was great.

(I probably would have preferred it as a standalone title instead of part of the Santina Crown series. I'm still not clear on how all the characters in that series are connected and have skipped some of the books by my less favorite authors, so I would have preferred not having all the Santina Crown drama going on in the background.)

It had moments where I wasn't sure how I would feel about it, but I really enjoyed it in the end. Carlotta and Rodriguez were both so damaged, but worked their way through it in ways that were believable... And they had great chemistry together. And Rodriguez and Luca were so adorable together....

I really like the way Carlotta was protective with her son. She sometimes looked a bit hard with herself and her mistakes. Rodriguez(in spanish the editors called them Rodrigo) was very wounded with his past, but I finished loving him at the press conference scene. Love this book and it inspired me a design of Carlotta's lace cocktail black gown!!

Dibanding dg series sblmnya, jauh lebih better yang ini. Miss comunication-nya ga ngejelimet, lalu interaksinya juga berjalan lancar, dan endingnya manis yang tdk berlebihan

By far this is my favorite! I think I'm a sucker for a man that can accept another man's child as his own. This installment is as realistic as royalty can get! GREAT READ CAN I RATE THIS 10 STARS?
