4.5 stars! One of the most endearing books I've ever come across. Simply adorable. Granted it's a little far fetched given the times we live in but it is still a feel-good book worthy of many sighs. It's fiction for a reason, just saying.

I have read several books by author Debbie Macomber, she never fails to tell a good story.

While the plot/storyline is cliched in this book, I still found myself wanting to find out what happened with Stefano and Hope. I liked the ending, even if it was cliched :)

Enjoyed reading

I liked this book because I couldn't second guess it. I from oregon and Washington but live in Missouri so I enjoy reading books about my home states. I appreciate reading a book that is not xrated. kudos to Debbie.

This is the way a romance should be written. Great uplifting characters that you love but that make you want to throw the book across the room because of their actions. Clean language and no sex. Authors need to take lessons from Debbie Macomber on how to write romances!

Great book,

This book simply captivating! I loved that it made me laugh out loud. I loved that my heart just broke. It was as if I was the character in the book. Best one of Debbie's book I have read. Loved it!

Meh. Fluff, short, predictable. I love Debbie's books, but this one just didn't have enough substance. Nor did it take me on an adventure where I couldn't see miles ahead. Will just have to try some of her others.

It wasn't awful. But it wasn't great. I got it solely because Tavia Gilbert did the narration--and she's fantastic. But the story was meh. At best.

4 SUPER CUTE MY PRINCE STARS

I’m on this prince binge, throw anything my way with a prince on it, in it and I’m all over it. I haven’t read a Debbie Macomber book in some time and I did the audio version. I REALLY liked the audio version. One of the things I love about established (and don’t get me wrong, I still love my indie authors) published authors is that they get good narrators. The female narrator does a top notch performance and I love her European accent and ALL of her voice transitions

Boring, predicable and not much "romance." Most of the characters were unrelatable

Yes, this was a modern day fairy tale. Yes, the eventual outcome was predictable. Yes, it was a unbelievable. However, it was a lot of fun. Any romantic at heart would love this story of a prince needing to find a wealthy bride to save his country from financial ruin who comes to America to do just that. He and his male secretary have arranged for a date with him to be auctioned off at a romantic author convention as a ruse for him to meet Priscilla Rutherford, an American heiress. He does meet ...more

The Bachelor Prince by Debbie Macomber (Audio Edition)
Narrated by Tavia Gilbert

3 Stars - This was a simple, sweet, and predictable romance. Pretty much what I guessed it would be. I hadn't read this author before so I wondered what she was like, as my library has a ton of her books.

For me, I would've liked a bit more passion, and by that I don't mean sex (which there was none btw.) I was just hoping for that chemistry between the characters that gives me all the fluttery feelings, which sadly d

I’m rather tired of the Prince plot, from all authors, not just this one.
Some aspects of this story were kind of irritating. Why on earth would he plan to marry one girl but go on a date and then continue to date someone else, while his assistant dated his future wife?
The narrator of this audio book, Tavia Gilbert, exhales a gasp-sounding breathy sigh at the end of each sentence. This becomes grating rather quickly so that when you take that last cd out of the player you are happy not to have t

Fun read, but highly unlikely. I had a hard time reasoning why Hope would be upset that the man who she won a date with would be upset at how he doesn't want to marry her. Come on, you go on one paid date with this guy and even though he seems interested in you, you're upset when he tells you he's going to marry someone else? Seems lame to me. Regardless, I enjoyed this fun fictional story.

Sweetly Romantic.

Everyone is giving up something precious because of someone else. Add in a shy heiress that finds her gumption and 4 fairy godmothhers who aren't fairies and only one of them is a mother, gives this story a lot of twists and turns and problems. But of course love conquers all.....with with little help from Uncle Sam.

I couldn't read past the first few chapters. It starts out okay, and the characters have potential. The main characters meet when she wins a date with him at a charity auction. He is the prince of a country looking for a rich bride and doesn't want to do the auction in the first place. Also she has a meddling mother and her meddling mother's friends. It's all a bit much.

I appreciate that others may enjoy this book and will happily encourage readers seeking fast-paced, gentle romances with generally affable characters for a brief escape from day to day life to seek out this story.

If you have nothing else to read, then this book will at least give you something to read. Its basically just a stupid, silly book. After reading the first couple of chapters, you automatically know how the book is going to end.
