What could be more romantic than a wedding in a Scottish castle?

For Carrie MacCallum, sister of the bride, the answer is finding herself pressed against an impossibly handsome man in a curtained alcove inside said castle. His slow burn smile is enough to have Carrie thinking of more than moonlit walks beneath a canopy of stars. Shes thinking about a fling. Or she would

The concept for the story is cute, but oh. My. God. Does this woman not have any clue about who the Prince of Wales is? You know, the heir to the throne of England???

Instead Jameson has portrayed the Prince of Wales as second in line after his brother. Jameson lost me right there. Yeah, yeah, Im a glutton for punishment, so I did read the whole thing.

What a waste of time. Carrie kept moaning on about should she-shouldnt she? The prince had his own issues. Then there was Carries stupid lame-ass
This was a short read. It was your run of the mill royal and commoner story and it was a little boring. It wasn't a bad story, necessarily. It was just a bit dull. And the shortness of it didn't lend itself to very developed characters or plot.

I liked the banter and the humor, but the writing could have used another edit. A solid 2 stars to pass your time. Low angst, low drama, and safe.

Cute story. Quick read, before I knew it was more than halfway through the book.
Really like the characters, esp the royal siblings. Can't wait to read more about them.
In some ways, Carrie seemed a bit unreal/perfect. Rarely losing temper, getting mad or frustrated. She was also very quick to forgive or help.
A few things didn't add up to me in the fic, why Edward lead the press down the secret passages, revealing such passages and why he and Carrie jumped into bed when they knew the press

I really enjoyed this book. Molly Jameson has created a winner in TANGLED UP IN PRINCES. A refreshing look at the British Monarchy with characters that are believable, likable and very real. The main character is Carrie, who is funny and irreverant and someone that I would seriously want to meet for coffee every week. The royal family is perfectly portrayed as classic staid Brits, but with unexpected quirkiness that comes from life in a fish bowl. Edward and James were easy to fall in love with ...more

Light and fun read

This book is what I like to refer to as light and fluffy. It has your typical boy meets girl, there is something to tear them apart, then they lived happily ever after.
I did not give it a higher rating because it could have used a good proof reader. There are too many instances of misused words except for accept as an example. In one place the heroine is even called by a different name than her character name. These things are very distracting to me.

Found some issues: Carrie is referred to as Claire, sweet instead of suite, buy instead of by and other similar errors.

Other issues such as the two characters being in a hidden passage and suddenly they are on the bed. They have dinner on the roof of a castle with Edwardss staff serving but it isnt his castle so how did his staff get there?

I had planned to read this series but due to the issues Ive encountered in this book, I dont plan to finish.

Delightful and charming! And there was knitting! It was short but really adorable and sweet.

I will note, though, that the formatting of the book was all messed up. The indents at the beginning of paragraphs weren't there for a good chunk of the book, there were missing quotation marks on dialogue, extra line breaks... Could have used a good round of copy editing and formatting before being put through the Amazon Kindle black box.

Awesome book! I love books about royals falling in love with commoners. I wished there had been a little more at the end of book, but it was still really good. Thinking about starting the one about his sister next.
This started out clever and cute, but started losing its charm about halfway through. The heroine changed from quirky and sweet to slutty and flighty, which was a major turn off. I ended up skimming through the rest, and wont be wasting time on the rest of the series. ...more

Without the errors it would be a better read

So many errors! The story had promise, but the errors just brought it down, down, down. Characters were engaging and held the attention, they would have been better with more development. A good proofreader goes a long way.

It was good book but very predictable. There were a few twists i was not expecting. Stayed up most of night reading to finish book done at 230A. Can't wait to read the next Books in the series about this royal family.

I haven't read many Royal books, so I honestly don't have anything to compare this too, but I really enjoyed this one. It was sweet. It was hot. It was different. And has me wanting to read about more Royals. :)

This was pure escapist fun. I loved the humor. The writing could have been a little smoother, though.

Entertaining, fun, realistically frustrating, feel-good. (A treasure, but not enough knitting or yarn porn.) I'll be reading more in the series.

Not bad, decent read. Love at first sight, no horrendous misunderstandings that are intermidible
This was a quick and cute fairty tale-type romance. Carrie MacCallum is in Scotland for her sister's wedding when she meets a very handsome guy. Said handsome guy happens to be Prince Edward, one of the British royal kids. Edward is buddies with the groom, and although he's there for the wedding too, he's mostly there to keep his brother, Jamie, out of trouble. When he meets Carrie and she doesn't know who he is, he's refreshingly happy as well as attracted to her. Carrie and Edward have a ...more
This is one of those books where I spent half my time rolling my eyes at some of the dialogue and the other half just loving the story.

I think my main problem was that there was a lot of telling instead of showing. I just felt like Edward and Carrie weren't together enough for the romance to really be believable. However, I ended up liking them both a lot & loved the secondary characters even more. Even though I had issues with this book I enjoyed it & look forward to reading the rest

Really more of a 3.5 stars, but I'm rounding up because it was well a written and engaging story- I just would have liked more depth and detail to the characters and plot (I tend to want enjoyable tales to continue!). It is a very cute whirlwind romance with a prince and a small town American girl.

Very quick read, and worth reading if you enjoy royal romances. I'll be reading the rest of the series!

I liked the book. I just was really confused for the longest time about the time period. When I read the synopsis I thought it was going to be a historical romance. Ended up being a contemporary which my the compromising positions a little out of date. But I like the book and fell in love with the characters. Can't wait to read Lizzy's story.

I loved this introduction to our Royal characters! I don't know what my fascination is with royalty, but this fulfills all my wishes in a Royal Romance. Well-written, believable characters and a plausible plot. I didn't want to smack anyone (ok, well maybe Jamie...). I recommend this to anyone who loves romance and an HEA!

I really loved the book. The way Carrie and Edward meet is so unassuming. Also, thought a lot of the tension and drama with the paparazzi felt genuine and was well written. If you are looking for a great quick read with a royal subject matter, look no further.

Really enjoyed

I call this light reading. It's great sometimes when you finish one book that's a little intense and you need something to wind down. It was funny, romance, and an all around good read. Would recommend! Yep, I'm looking forward to the next one!
