Very good book. Ruby and Alex had met in Paris on New Year's Eve while in their twenties. He had rescued her from a crowd and they spent the next few hours together enjoying the holiday. Ruby had no idea who he was as they made plans to meet the next day for sightseeing. Alex is suddenly called away because his father is ill, and she doesn't hear from him again. She isn't surprised though, as she discovers who he is a few days later.

Ten years later Alex suddenly appears at her workplace, asking

Buku ini selamat dari DNF dan bintang jelek karena bahasan terapi wicara yang diulas lumayan oke. Dapet ilmu parenting banget baca ini, terutama gimana memperlakukan anak yang ditinggalkan ibunya saat usianya belum genap setahun.

Aku masih tidak suka akan bagaimana Ruby mengungkit masa lalu sepintas yang dihabiskan dengan Alex. Mereka menjalani kehidupan baru dengan orang lain selama rentang waktu 10 tahun itu. Tapi, ohemjeh mereka dramatisnya ampun-ampunan seolah ciuman singkat di malam tahun ba

I liked all the characters in this book, Alex (some of the time), Annabelle and Ruby always. Theirs' is a very deep and troubling love story that I had many difficulties with. A lot of the facts were just too unbelievable. I will give examples later. This was an emotional read for me and my review will reflect those emotions that were stirred in me.

This book did have an HEA but unfortunately it did not leave me feeling happy or content. No warm and fuzzies in the least. In fact for hours after

Bagaimana mungkin sebuah ciuman dan perbincangan singkat membawa kesan yang mendalam dan bertahan hingga sepuluh tahun kemudian?

Itulah yang dialami Ruby. Dia bertemu dengan Alex yang menyelamatkannya dari kerumunan orang pada malam tahun baru di Paris. Ketika Alex menciumnya di bawah kembang api tahun baru, Ruby tidak tahu siapa Alex yang sebenarnya. Malam itu mereka berpisah secara terpaksa ketika beberapa pria dengan setelan hitam menjemput Alex. Beberapa hari kemudian, Ruby baru mengetahui di
I actually really enjoyed this book.

I think it was sweet and cute and I really enjoyed the romance between them.

I think it could have been better, and would have been nicer to have had them meet a bit sooner but I do believe they were in love and I actually enjoyed this book the most out of the Christmas Collection 17

This read like a Hallmark movie. Which, since I like Hallmark movies, meant it was just fine. But just fine is all. For a book where fireworks featured so prominently there weren't many for me. I think the momentum (and Ruby's character) got too bogged down in the third act, and too much stop-start action before the obvious end. Like buying time or filling word count to get there.

The premise all in is a bit preposterous but that doesn't bother me. I'm all about a fairy tale. I'm also fine with l

The writing is great and this book had a lot of potential but I just didn't enjoy it.

There was too much going on that was just too unbelievable. (view spoiler)

THE PRINCE SHE NEVER FORGOT by author Scarlet Wilson is a January 2015 release by Harlequin Presents series.

Ten years ago Ruby Wetherspoon met and kissed a mystery man, Alex. But she could never forget him. She did find out that he was Crown Prince Alexander of Euronia. And then he married, had a daughter then became a widower. Now he needed Ruby. Would Ruby take this chance? Dare she risk her heart once again?

But Alex wanted Ruby to work with his small daughter to help her speak. And Ruby’s hea

I liked this book, it had some surprising elements to it. Both Ruby and Alex were interesting people. So was some of the things that happened to them during the ten years that they have been apart.

Ruby's best friend Polly, was someone who I wasn't too sure about. At times she seemed like kind of "Debbie Downer." I wasn't so sure that she was really looking out for Ruby. But in the story, Ruby probably put it best. It was like having her own professional cheerleader and piranha all in one. Well
I've never read a Mills & Boon novel before and only read this one as I was thinking of entering a magazine competition to write one. The book felt like a summary of a longer work so there wasn't much description of people or places, other than the main characters. The plot was predictable but that's more the fault of the genre than of this author. It was fine as what it was, but not for me - and I've decided not to enter the competition!

The Prince She Never Forgot

A sweet timeless take of a common woman who fell for a prince. But they didn't get together at first. He left her when called home. She didn't see him for over ten years. Now he needs her help with his daughter. Since she had gotten a degree in the speech part of medicine she was perfect for him. But was that all she was going to be involved in? He was a widow with a country to run. How could she, a commoner be anything more to him?

Wow! You gotta read this book....

A truly captivating collection of inspirational stories. This author has written some glorious stories that captivated me from beginning to end. The characters were fabulous and drew me into their story very quickly. I totally adore the way it was written and would recommend it to those looking for a great set of romances, at a truly great price. Oh... And it has a happily ever after 😍😍

Some of the only things I remember about this book are that I listened to it on audio, I read it in like 1 or 2 day, and it was about a Prince with a daughter and a girl who is in the medical field. That's sad because I read it 2 months ago.

This was okay. I had to suspend all belief that a brief encounter was the start of a deep love that lasted through 10 years of no contact, especially since he's the prince regent of a country with resources to find her and send anonymous flowers.

This book was ok nothing special. Just proves why I hate Romance in the first place. I only read it because I got free it on my computer, then my stupid computer was acting up, so I bought a physical copy so I could finish it. Side note to the author, Scarlet, your prologue should never be as long as your chapters. In this book the prologue was 25 & a half pages, that's a chapter not a prologue. To quote another author, if you need a prologue it should be half of your chapters. It would have ...more

Ruby Wetherspoon and her friends are in Paris for New Year’s Eve. She gets separated from them and almost trampled by the crowd. A handsome dark haired man picks her up and they spend a few stolen moments together with the fireworks and a trip to a cafe. But just as things get interesting, he is hurried away by a family emergency. He asked for her number but she lost her phone in the fall so she tells him the name of her hotel. He doesn’t contact her.

This was a cute little romance. It doesn't feel at all realistic-princes and expensive dresses and meeting after ten years. But as a sort of fantasy it is very fun and sweet, though somewhat lacking in tension.
I have to admit I like the idea of meeting again after a chance meeting many years ago. There are a couple of guys in this world I'd love to see again, to see if we'd ever have a chance at a real relationship. Ha...not that I've had a ton of flings or anything. But I think we all know what

Este é o primeiro livro de 2017, e confesso que so peguei nele agora porque tinha a torre eifel na capa e eu precisava dela para um desafio que estou a fazer, no entanto tenho de dizer que gostei muito.

Foi uma leitura agradavel e uma historia romântica, fez me pensar que mesmo depois de muitos anos o amor verdadeiro ainda continua forte e que apesar de todas as miúdas sonharem con o príncipe encantado muitas delas não estariam preparadas para una verdadeira relação Com alguém da realeza e as mu

This is one of those books where you think you know what will happen next, and you're totally wrong.

A great read over the Christmas holidays particularly as it begins in Paris during the new year celebrations, Ruby a speech therapist and Alex a prince from a small principality will meet. But their time is not now.

Fast forward ten years and both their lives have changed but neither forgot, and now is the time for truth and hopefully a shared future.

I really loved this book.

I loved the characters in this, both with the right mix of strength and vulnerability. It was great to see that Ruby didn't rush into things, didn't settle for compromises, didn't just swoon. And Alex was wonderful too, definitely a prince worthy of falling in love with. I was rooting for their happy ending and for little Annabelle to finally speak.

Lovely story. Sweet and romantic. I didn't like the way it kept going between her view, to his view, to the writers view. Apart from that I liked it. Nice book for summer afternoon reading.
