Love this book so much!

I really enjoyed reading this.It was interesting,funny,with great characters and story.The main characters were fantastic,I loved the chemistry between them.Also,how cool are their parents?Loved them! Who can resist the grumpy perfection that is Delaney?♥ He is so funny and smart.I also loved Cordina,her inner-monologues got me laughing out loud!And that,I was laughing so much.Both from happiness and Delaney's ridiculousness.

Overall,such a great chick-lit.

Cordina's Crown Jewel is the 4th and last book in NR's Cordina series. It was written many years after the original 3 books and features one daughters of Gabriella and Reeve (Affaire Royale).

Camilla de Cordina has become a media favorite wherever she goes. Everyone wants to know about the beautiful, young princess. Photographers and reporters are constantly hounding her. One night while in the States for a benefit, it becomes to much for the princess. She feels like she's about to break. So she
Forgive me, literature, for I have slummed.

I'm sitting here with a pile of books to my left taller than my laptop; on my right is a book I've been meaning to review and haven't made much progress. In that towering pile, though, I have Robin McKinley and Tom Clancy and Brandon Sanderson and Diana Wynne Jones; I have 'I Am Number Four' and 'Anna And The French Kiss' and yet, last night when I wanted something to read, I didn't reach for any of those...

If one has not read the trilogy to which this is a sequel (found in Cordina's Royal Family and re-released in other forms recently) one might be annoyed at the wealth of secondary characters who clutter up the beginning and the end of the story with little given in the way of characterization. The body of the work is not affected.

The characters of the protagonists are beautifully illustrated with humor and depth of feeling. I loved that she had to trick him into the initial seduction.

Încă o serie minunată dusă cu bine la final. Acest ultim volum a fost la fel de mai bun ca anterioarele. Pot spune că s-a observat că a fost scris mult mai târziu decât primele trei, deoarece stilul autoarei s-a îmbunătățit, astfel încât cartea s-a citit ușor, rapid și fără întreruperi cauzate de micile erori regăsite în celelalte.

Deși am vrut să cunosc povestea micului drăcușor prezent în volumele anterioare, Dorian, nici sora sa, Camilla nu a putut fi mai prejos și mi-a oferit o poveste de-a

De här va precis så sockersött & lättläst som Nora Roberts mer mainstream romance brukar vara. Funkar att vila hjärnan mot.

I accidentally read book four out of order, but it could be read that way. Princess Camilla is hounded by the media and responsibility until she is ready to have a nervous breakdown. She takes off in a rental car and tours the East coast of America. After driving into a ditch, she is rescued by Delaney a injured archeologist. He decides to hire her to help with his research and she decides not to tell him she is a princess. Of course, it comes out and the fun is in how they resolve it. This stor ...more

I didn't realize this was part of a series of books, but that's ok, I really liked it anyway. I like the idea of the need to escape responsibilities once in a while...I think we all need that now and again. So I relate to that to an extent...of course, we can't all run off for weeks on end and just go wherever the wind takes us like the main character does, but it does sound refreshing and adventurous. If you can get past her cantankerous, disagreeable rescuer, it IS quite romantic. Fun and flig ...more

I loved Nora Roberts' book, Cordina's Crown Jewel. I read the Cordina series out of order, starting with this one first, and I fell in love with Camilla and Delaney. The way they were irritated by each other at first and then slowly came to respect each other, getting used to each other's presence, and eventually falling in love. It was wonderful! One of the best romance novels I've read in a long time!

Engraçado este último desenlace e de todos este e o Posta em Cena são os melhores! Demasiado conto de fadas mas lê-se bem!

Nora Roberts é sem dúvida uma das minhas autoras preferidas, e parece que nunca mais acabam os livros dela. Ainda tenho a serie Mortal para terminar. E vou só a meio.

Este livro além de pequeno é também barato. Um romance da editora Harlequin. Neste quatro livro da série Cordina, Camilla é a personagem principal. Farta e cansada de ser a princesa perfeita, ela decide viajar sozinha à procura do seu lugar. Nessa viagem conhece Caine, um homem orgulhoso e um

This one was a good one.
I liked the fact that she wasn't a spoiled princess. She took really good care of her man. I loved the ending where Del put an effort to it, to show that he could be romantic, even if he took it a little too far, by climbing down the castle.
Nora R is as always an amazing author who make you feel like you are in the story and can really imagine how everything looks and feels like.
I gave this story ⭐⭐⭐⭐ because of how good every single detail is explained to perfection.

The story follows Cordina a princess who is constantly in the media, and can never go anywhere without the presence of photographers. One day she decides that she cant take it any longer and decides to just start driving. She ends up getting caught in an awful rain storm and ends up off the road. The person that stops is man with a broken collarbone, who also has no idea who she is. She eventually starts working for him while he has no idea who he us. And she worries about what he will think whe ...more

This was actually hilarious and cute. :) Well worth a quick read. Camilla needs to escape the pressures of her life (most specifically the press). She goes on an adventure and ends up at a cabin in New England with the grumpiest man in the world. She befriends him by helping with his work. His grumpiness lets her know he is genuine in a roundabout way....and romance story nonsense ensues. There are actually a few lines where I actually chuckled. I gave the book away already so I don't have them ...more
By far the best book of the series, since this was when NR was hitting her stride and writing some of her stories I love best. I had some laugh-out-loud moments listening to the audiobook, especially when they were in Del's cabin in the woods. And when Camilla's father and brothers first dealt with Del. Unfortunately, Del and Camilla themselves got a bit boring once the scene moved to Cordina, but it was pretty well offset by seeing all the couples of the previous three books. Happily ever after ...more

Feeling nostalgic and pulled this one off the bottom shelf for a re-read. Reminded me of My Fair Lady is some ways. Camilla (princess) needs some time away from the royal court and runs away. After crashing her car she is rescued by Delaney (stodgy professor) who doesn't know who she is. Time away tucked into the woods of Vermont allows the romance to blossom. Unfortunately, the realities of the world always intrude.

Let me be very clear: this is not my preferred genre or author. I needed a quick, easy distraction during a time of some turmoil, and this was on the top of the pile. That said, go for it, if this is precisely your cuppa. It moved quickly, it wasn't too horribly over the top in the drama, and I can understand why my mother loved this author.

Beautiful ending to a series . Even though there was no dangerous plots against the royal family the romance and personal conflict between Camilla and Delaney was enough to keep me interested till the end . Always love reading Nora Roberts books and there is plenty more to read

Read as part of Cordina's Royal Family: Bennett & Camilla

This on was a good story to pass a cold Sunday afternoon with, I found myself skimming through parts of it. I thought Caine was a great character as well as his parents.

“An hour later, thoroughly appalled with the state of the cabin now that she had given it a thorough assessment, Camilla sailed into the shed. She was armed with a long list.

"You need supplies."

"Hand me that damn wrench."

She picked up the tool and considered herself beyond civilized for not simply bashing him over the head with it. "Your home is an abomination. I'll require cleaning supplies - preferably industrial strength. And if you want a decent meal, I'll need some food to stock the kitchen. You have to go into town."

He battled the bolt into submission, shoved the switch on. And got nothing but a wheezy chuckle out of the generator. "I don't have time to go into town."

"If you want food for your belly and clean sheets on which to sleep, you'll make time.”
