This book gives the details of the other sister from the book Protecting the Pregnant Princess. Both books are stand alone, and both are good books. This story The Princess Predicament has romance, mystery, and action that kept me on the edge of my seat. Gabby’s sister and body guard had to protect Gabby by sending her away for six months. While Gabby was away she found out the truth about her life, and found out everyone she loved had told her lies. She is also pregnant. Danger closes in again ...more
Very good book. The action started immediately and never really stopped. When it's time for Gabby to leave the orphanage where she's been hiding she is nearly abducted. Whit arrived just in time to rescue her from that attempt, but they are later captured and must escape. Gabby has to decide if she can trust Whit and he must decide if he can go after what he wants.

I really liked both Whit and Gabby. Gabby is a lot smarter than people give her credit for. When her father promises her in marriage
Whitaker Howell was assigned to keep Princess Gabriella St. Pierre safe. The Princess has been in hiding at an orphanage for six months and is about to leave the country when Whit rescues her. She is six months pregnant with his child.

When will he find out he is going to be a father? Will they get safely home?

The book answers these questions and more. I loved it and only stopped reading it in the middle because I started reading a mystery.
This book isn't as good as a lot of the books I've given three stars, but it is no where near as bad as most of the books I've given two stars.
In an ideal world, I'd be able to give this 2.75, but unfortunately I can only work in full numbers between 1 and 5.
This was a very easy read. Nothing of note really happened in it and most of the plot twists and turns were obvious (to me at least) so I didn't really have to think about anything or pay that much attention.
The princess was a complete moron
Another pregnant princess. I found quite inconceivable the princess not only slept with her father's guard under such circumstances but also got pregnant. Very typical Harlequin.

In Childs’ romantic suspense novel, Princess Gabriella St. Pierre is forced into hiding after receiving a death threat. The Princess is pregnant and struggles to suppress the memories of that one passionate night with her father’s bodyguard, Whit Howell. After a failed abduction, Whit rescues the Princess and vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe.

A good addition to the Royal Bodyguards series.

Was the first book I read from the author So some of the characters I did not know about but I got through it and enjoyed the book very much. It was suspenseful and romantic and always kept you off the edge. Honestly it was action all the way thru. Short simple story but a great quick read. I don't read many of these books just because they aren't long and detailed but I did enjoy this one.
Fairly decent lite read. But grrrr!!! I have 2 books in this series by this author and I somehow got them out of order and read the 2nd one first.
Pretty standard romance with some suspense thrown in. Bodyguard protecting princess who is 6 months pregnant with his baby
Great book. I am glad things worked out in the end.
