Didn't like the fact that heroine had a child with OM. For me personally, I prefer any children in a romance be with the main MCs that I am supposed to be reading about, otherwise it was an okay story.

This one left me with such a smile, a beautiful story with such sensuality and chemistry the emotions flow with this one as Jake and Caro journey a rocky road, learning to open up and trust, to find their HEA, and the setting is just gorgeous I love Switzerland. Jake and Caro are really worth getting to know, MS West know how to pull a reader in with her fabulous stories.

Revelations of a Secret Princess was a deeply emotional royal romance that had a fiery enemies to lovers feel to it. And it was a story which had our heroine hiding her identity from our hero and his niecefor a very good reason.

Author Annie West had a nice setup for this Harlequin Presents. There was quite an interesting backstory for both Jake and Caro, a lot of it heartbreaking, as we learned more about their start in life and what

The heroine was a welcome departure from the Presents line's obsession with virgin women. However this from the lawyer?

"Zoe had rung today, warning again that winning custody of Ariane wouldnt be simple."

Huh??? The adoption was illegal. The uncle has no prior relationship with the child at all. He muses that they are strangers, and the mother comes in to the child's life at the same time. The child was stolen. Jake has no rights, he might have a bazillion dollars but unless he paid off people

In the interests of honesty, I received this book in exchange of a honest review.

In fact her father (the King) had arranged for the baby to be given away. She searches for her daughter only to find that the girl's adoptive parents have died and she's now being taken care of by her uncle. Carolina, going by the name Caro Rivage becomes nanny to her

Revelations of a Secret Princess by Annie West is not like any other book I have read about princesses. Its story details that of a princess who lost her mother at a young age, dealt with an overbearing and jerk of a father, and had her baby stolen from her. The pain of all those situations could be felt throughout the novella. Her grief tore at my heartstrings. All this princess wanted was to find her daughter whom she was told died as a stillborn. A midwife finally released the secret of that ...more

What can I say? This was such a wonderful and wholesome novel and I loved every bit of it. The romance which had a slow buildup was just up my alley and I loved that was a child was factored into the plot. However, I did feel like the protagonist got too carried away in her thoughts sometimes. Her feelings were portrayed very intensely in the novel and I for one felt like that was overkill. The background was really well written. I felt like I was truly there with the characters and I thrived on ...more

Revelations of a Secret Princess is a pretty quick read that has a bit of a fairy tale feel to it. Not much that happens in this one is likely to be anything you'd see or hear about in real life, at least not in modern-day, and some things are more about furthering the story than anything resembling realism. That said, this one is good for a bit of escapism. The characters are interesting, our romantic couple is likable, and they both have some things to work through on their way to happily ever ...more

Revelations of a Sercret Princess by Annie West has strong characters in Jake and Caro. I was impressed by the focus on small details such as emotions and feelings right from the start. Both characters have interesting backstories and Caro's little girl was adorable.

The book was quick but a very interesting story and there were secrets, happiness, sadness tragedy and the lavish world of a billionaire. Good attention to detail and atmosphere.

Jake and Princess Carolina story in my opinion relates to real life. The situations that made me think this way was when she thought her child wasn't alive and then found out she was, how her Dad mistreated her, and last but not least when she had Jake thinking that she was someone else. In life as a mother you will do what needs to be done to find your child. That's what hit home to me the most in this book speaking from a point of view from being a mother myself. This love story shows that no ...more

A mother's love, an uncle's devotion and the secrets that could be their undoing. Revelations of a Secret Princess is a heartbreaking trek through past mistakes, present deception and the redeeming power of love. Caro and Jake are complicated. From young love to adult secrets. There's a ton of baggage they need to work through. West does away with the fairy tale and delivers hard hitting emotion that is unpredictable, relatable and unforgettable. These characters stay on your mind and in your ...more

Jake hires Caro to be the Nanny but things get complicated when he finds out who she is.

I really enjoyed this book. It was sort of like a secret baby where the heroine didn't know she had a kid, because she was told her baby was stillborn. So when Caro discovered that her baby was indeed alive, she applied to be her nanny in order to get to know her. This situation made Caro a very sympathetic heroine and I really enjoyed reading her story. I'm glad she found a happily ever after with Jake, who went above and beyond to protect Caro from her evil father. This was a lovely read.

Princess Caroline found out that the baby girl that she gave birth to did not die but is alive and was adopted by a couple and that couple died and is now living with the uncle Jake Maynard. I enjoyed reading this to find out what happens and how it turns out.
