The Proper Princess by Melissa McClone
"Best one of the series!!

So this series is best read in order as characters intersperse throughout the stories. At the very least - you should read Book #2 to meet Enrique. He is such an awkward, but trying so hard to be better kind of character. I..." Read more of this review »
The Not-So-Perfect Princess by Melissa McClone
"Each book is better than the last.

Princess Julianna is set to wed Prince Enrique to serve her country. This isn't the first time she has been betrothed, but she is hoping this is the last time she is involved in an arranged marriage. All is well u..." Read more of this review »
The Reluctant Princess by Melissa McClone
"Cute, royal romance.

Izzy and Niko are like oil and water, quite literally in Izzy's case since she is a grease monkey. This book stretches the imagination, but it is a cute, fun read with a quick HEA and sweetness.

I enjoyed the stubbornness of Izz..." Read more of this review »
Melissa answered a question about Summer Serenade:
Summer Serenade by Melissa McClone
I would love to write her story! This was my last book the Quinn Valley Ranch series, but I could probably write hers on her own. I'll have to think about that. Thanks!
Melissa added a status update: Guess what? Summer Serenade is live! Read it now!

“Life takes you to unexpected places. Love brings you home.”
Melissa McClone, Mistletoe Magic

“I am not a cowboy with a ranch and cattle, but I have this stable with some of the most beautiful horses in the world. I am not a farmer with a hundred-year-old farmhouse and acres of crops, but I have an island with acres of fertile land. I am not a mechanic with grease under my fingernails, but I know how to fix a flat tire. I am not your everyday average guy. I do not know if I can be one. But if you marry me, I will do my best to make your life as ordinary as you'd like.”
Melissa McClone, Legenda Cincin

“Women want their husbands to have the whole package. That means looking beyond the surface. Let’s face it. His personality needs a complete overhaul. The guy’s not only arrogant and obnoxious, but he’s also—”
“Right here,” a familiar royal voice said”
Melissa McClone, The Cinderella Princess

“I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.”
Louise Hay

“Mistletoe was her new favorite holiday decoration. She would have to hang some in the kitchen. All over the house. And keep the green stuff hanging until Easter. Or Thanksgiving.”
Melissa McClone, Home For Christmas

“He wanted to wrap his arms around her and kiss away her uncertainty. But if he did that she would bolt. So he brushed stray hairs that had fallen out of her ponytail off her face instead. Ignored how soft the strands felt against his fingers. Pretended his pulse wasn't stampeding like a herd of bison on the plain.”
Melissa McClone, Home For Christmas

“Trust wisely and believe in yourself, in your vision.”
