Even though I am not a fan of stories about royalty, I knew if anyone could convert me , it would be this author. Sure enough , she did.

After her parents death, she’s not sure she’s a Bartolini, and she certainly has no royal blood in her. In the meantim

I love Jennifer Faye’s books and The Prince and the Wedding Planner is no different. This first installment from her new series, The Bartolini Legacy, has an interesting plot and twist. I love stories of a couple from two different worlds falling in love. It is almost always predictable but so delightful. I love it!

I am giving The Prince and the Wedding Planner five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy a quick, heartwarming and sweet romance.

This is the first book in a new series by Jennifer Faye and it promises to be quite a wonderful series based on this book. I enjoy reading books that take me to a world I'll never inhabit, one where I'm pursued by a royal and siblings who may or may not be an actual sibling. I currently have no plans to become a wedding planner. Bianca Bartolini is involved in the above, I admired her for what she was facing and how she dealt with it all.

I'm not normally a fan of insta-love but in this book, it

The Prince and The Wedding Planner begins The Bartolini Legacy with a heartfelt romance that has all the emotions, feel-good moments, and a Royal falling for a commoner that any romance reader could wish for.

Bianca and her siblings are facing their parents’ deaths with startling revelations from their mother’s journal – one of her children is the result of an affair, but which one and who is the father are questions left unanswered. Of course, a DNA test is

Thank you in advance to the author, Jennifer Faye and Prism Book Tours for providing a complimentary review copy. A positive review was not required. All words and thoughts are my own.

While I’m not new to the Harlequin books, this is somewhat of a re-introduction to the Romance line. It is definitely my first introduction to the author.

This isn’t a clean read due to the fact of a one-time off-screen (or not depicted in the book) sexual encounter. Still, I found the book clean enough for myself

3.5

An unexpected romance develops in Jennifer Faye’s The Prince and the Wedding Planner, the first of her Bartolini Legacy trilogy, and it is so fun.

When she catches Crown Prince Leo’s eye, Bianca Bartolini becomes swept up in the drama of planning a royal wedding. It is no easy feat navigating the wishes of the bride and the queen—and Leo, too. Add in the complication that Leo has a deadline for determining the person he will marry in order to become king. He cannot deny his attraction to Bianc

Do you know what I hate about starting a new series?  While the HEA is given, there are still some loose threads that aren't resolved and now, I wait impatiently for the next book.  Grrr...But I forgive Ms. Faye.  She has written a great book with characters that I actually liked.  Plus, the loose thread is a real doozy.  And yes, Bianca doesn't need the distraction of Leo but it sure is nice.

What Ms. Faye brings to the table this time is her ability to make royalty feel like everyday people.  T

Great start to a new series! Bianca Bartolini's parents have died and in the will they pitted one sibling against the other for the vast Bartolini Estate. But Bianca found her Mom's journal and stumbled on a secret, she had had an affair and one of the siblings was not a Bartolini! So DNA tests are done and they all go about their lives. Bianca is a wedding planner and that is where she meets Prince Leo. He needed a getaway from things at home and is taken with Bianca immediately. He hired her o ...more

A sweet connection! With the first book in her brand new The Bartolini Legacy series, Jennifer Faye takes us for a thrilling ride in THE PRINCE AND THE WEDDING PLANNER. He's a Prince, she's a commoner ... but they can't resist each other!

Bianca pulls our heartstrings with her family disconnect and hope that this job will be just the thing to put her wedding planning business on her family's vineyard on the map. She never expects to be drawn to the prince who arranges her services for his sister.

I fell in love with this modern day fairy tale of a wedding planner and her prince. The story was fun and romantic as Bianca Bartolini planned Giselle's wedding after the Princess and the Queen were disagreeing over everything and so her brother, Prince Leopold stepped in to help after he had met the wedding planner at a friend's wedding. I enjoyed the compromises Prince Leo had to make the Queen for her to agree to let him hire Bianca.

I also enjoyed the beautiful image of the country of Pataz

I absolutely adored this book by Jennifer. This one kicks off the Bartolini Legacy series and I can’t wait to read the next one! Bianca was such a fabulous, no nonsense woman who absolutely captivated me and Prince Leo from the first page. The subplots running through the book made for an enthralling journey and sets up the next book beautifully.

I'm always excited when Jennifer Faye starts a new series. She writes relatable characters and vivid locations you want to visit.
Bianca is facing an uncertain future when Prince Leo hires her to plan a wedding, but Leo has ulterior motives: he's drawn to the quiet, hard-working Bianca. Spending time together creates a bond that neither of them is prepared for, but if they can embrace it, they can each get what they want.

Even though the world in which the heroine finds herself seems unrealistic for a mere mortal like me, I love getting carried into that world by the author and always find the characers engaging and real. The hero and heroine are always smart and honest with one another - and always end up with the happy ending. Hooray. And the promise of future books in the Bartolini series. Again... hooray.

Jennifer Faye once again delivered an exceptional love story in her newest novel, The Prince and The Wedding Planner.
Bianca needs this job planning such a high profile Royal wedding, what she didn’t expect was finding her own Prince Charming.
Leo knew the moment he seen her, she was “the one”.
Secrets, misunderstandings, and even The Queen, can’t derail true love. When truths, confessions, and forgiveness are professed, love always wins.

Had to read and analyze this for my gender class. It absolutely followed the formula my teacher talked about in lectures:

-lots of gender roles
-heroine is bland (she could be literally anyone, which I guess is the point)
-the setting doesn't matter as long as it's a destination/"far away"
-heroine's parents are dead and her relationships with her siblings/friends are pretty superficial. Her job is a plot point the author uses to bring together heroine and love interest, which is what matters more t
