I have thoroughly enjoyed the Bravo Royales series so far and have been anxiously awaiting Max's story. I was not disappointed. The emotional journey had me going through quite a few tissues. Lani is the nanny for Max's niece and nephew by day and a budding novelist in the evenings. Over the previous year she and Max have become friends as they bonded over their love of Montedoran history. On New Year's Eve that friendship took an unexpected turn when they shared a passionate night together. But ...more

Loved Max and Lani's story. I have read a lot of the Bravo Royale Books but I especially loved this one. Even though Max is a prince, he is normal and down to earth but something is holding him back from ever marrying again. Lani has gone through hell and back but after letting go, she decides she needs and deserves and wants more from Max then he is willing to give. Can these two ever get past all that is in their way and make it work? Read it and find out. I highly recommend it.

I have to say that I read the e-book (which I received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review).

When I firsted started reading this story I didn't know if I would like, however once I got close to the end of the first chapter it reeled me in. A very sweet romance bloomed between Lani Vasquez and Prince Maximilian Bravo-Calabretti. Lani who had been a nanny to Rule's children had secretly been crushing on Prince Max what little did she know he felt the same way she did

Lani Vasquez and Prince Maximillian Bravo-Calabretti finally get their own story in "The Prince's Cinderella Bride" written by Christine Rimmer. This book was highly anticipated by readers who have been enjoying the Bravo Royales series written by Ms. Rimmer. Lani Vasquez is the best friend and nanny of Max Bravo-Calabretti's sister in law, Sydney. She also is an aspiring writer working on a trilogy of novels set in Montedoro. Max is the heir to the Montedoran throne.
It seems that Lani and Ma

The Prince’s Cinderella Bride is a fabulous addition to Christine Rimmer’s The Bravo Royales series. Yolanda ‘Lani’ Vasquez is the nanny to Sydney and Rule’s children that we were originally introduced to in The Prince’s Secret Baby. Lani moved to Montedoro with her friend Sydney and fell in love with the country. Her dream is to be a novelist so during the day she’s a nanny and in the evenings she spends her time in the library writing.

Max is the Prince of Montedoro and heir apparent to the th

I wanted a little more to the story. Maybe if I had read the other books in the series I would like it more. There were a lot of love scenes that I skipped over.

I liked the scenes with the children the best. They were charming as a family. I would have liked more scenes with the others in them.

I liked the characters. I could see why Lani was scared to have a love affair with a Prince. She was good with the different children. She had made some wrong choices when she was younger and was af

First I have to say that I read the e-book (which I received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review). I didn't see the cover until after I have finished the book & went to write my review. I have to say I'm not a big fan of it, mostly because the characters are nothing like what I had pictured while I was reading. Aside from the cover I thought that the store was very cute, even though it was a little predictable. Although, the things that Lani reveals about her pa ...more

I read The Prince's Cinderella Bride in one day. This book is one that keeps you on the edge of your seat making it hard to put down. You just want to read the next page or til the end of the chapter. This is one that will definitely stay on my book shelf to be read again.

Un libro donde las clases sociales parecen no existir cuando hay amor de por medio, y eso me ha gustado. Pero no he conectado con los protagonistas.

loved this book. I was so glad that Prince Maximillion was able to learn to love again after the death of his wife. Also, that Lani was able to get past all the demons of her past. And that they were able to find love.

I love visiting Montedoro and connecting with the royal family, they seem like old friends! Kind of wished there were more moments with other Bravos, kind of miss them! I like the friction between Lani and Max, it definitely kept me reading to get to the happy ever after part. Can't wait for the next book in this series!

Max, the Prince and his brother's Nanny, Lani are drawn together little by little all through the story. Past hurts have to come to light and each have to come to grip with issues before they can move on.
The Prince frees Lani when she shares what is hard for her and he still cares about her. She realizes what she really wants in life is husband, children and all.
Max has two children by his former wife who was killed. Lani adores the children and them her. Even Max's Mom loves Lani.

The Prince's Cinderella Bride is a wonderful addition to Christine Rimmers Bravo Royales series. This book revolves around Max, the Prince of Montedoro, and Yolanda ‘Lani’ Vasquez, the nanny. A modern day fairytale, this romance is an emotional journey filled with angst and drama. Not only does the couple need to overcome their past to obtain their HEA, they also have to deal with the intrusion of the paparazzi.

Overall, I had a lot of fun reading this fast paced romance. Yes, it has some angst t

Lani has fallen in love with the Max, a prince. The problem? She's the nanny and comes with quite a bit of baggage. It's so clique and she's just not ready for everything that will come along with that type of relationship. She's decided to end things before they get too complicated. But Max has waged an all out war to change her mind.

The story was sweet and the characters were likeable. It's a fun, quick read. My complaint would be all of the angsty, drama. The two characters had more baggage a

Too much tell, not enough show; about face on attitude to marriage came far too abruptly - no gradual changing of mind.

Shelves: romance, europe
This book can be looked at in two ways. First, it's a light-hearted romance about a fictional principality in Europe and characters from different social strata.

A nanny to the royal family finds herself stealing away from a New Year's Ball with the prince and heir - while he's keen to continue the relationship next day, and there's no law against it, he being widowed, she decides that it could never work and she'll either be discarded or lose her job.

Ok, so you know how it is when a prince is totally obsessed with you and just wants to be with you no matter what...well, that is basically what this book is about. Of all the Harlequin storylines, this is one of my favorites. Lani and Max just don't see how they can be together, but of course they are meant to be. Max has two young children, which is kind of hit or miss in a romance, but this was pretty well done.

This book is part of the Bravo Royale series from Christine Rimmer. It is a book that tells the story of two persons who doubt that they would find their happily ever after. It is also a fairy-tale story of a prince and a nanny. Max, Prince of Montedoro and heir apparent to the throne. He is a widower father of two, writer and historian. After a night spent together with the nanny of his brother’s child, he knew that he is attracted to her. But Lani avoiding him at all course as she feels that i ...more

This book is ok for the genre, but I had a really hard time getting through it because I was bored almost all the way. I honestly breathed a sigh of relief when I finished it. Both male and female leads irritated me... Lani because she continually felt she wasn't good enough and Max because he wanted everything on his own terms all the time. Anyway, I'm done with it and glad to be done.

Decent story

Wasn't the best, but definitely not the worst. Easy, light story whittle angst. A decent love story. Interactions with family would have provided more context. Story was a bit shallow.

Real rating: 2.5 stars.
The characters are relatable and the setting is a bit enchanting, but the story itself is so cliché it takes a lot from the fact that there’s good writing in this book.
I enjoyed the writing, but I wouldn’t recommend this to someone who’s been reading romance for a long time.
