Attention one and all: His Royal Highness, Prince Randolph of Petersbourg, will set sail for London in early June and reside at St. James Palace for one full month . . . Some say the true motive for the prince's visit to our fair country is to seek and marry his future queen. I will therefore pose the question to our devoted and reflective readers: Who among us will be the chosen one?
From the London Ballroom Society Pages, Lady Alexandra Monroe has been told in no uncertain terms that she must set her sights on a proposal from Prince Randolph to better her family's situation. Instead, she finds herself falling for his charming but dangerous younger brother Nicholas, a man whose passionate nature - and irresistible good looks - makes it impossible to remember her duty. But while she is torn between ambition and desire, a wicked scandal brews, shocking secrets are revealed, and soon she begins to wonder: Can true love really conquer all?

Wow! I just loved this book! At first I thought the accent might be cheesy, but after sticking with it for the first couple chapters I was transfixed!! The narrators performance was amazing and the love story was so moving. Julianne Maclean is such a magnificent storyteller!
The plot was annoying.
The entire book was the heroine proving she was worthy of her husband, not the other way around.
I think Ann Flosnik does a good job with narrations. I have her Karen Robards books and I just finished Kushiels dart. I never have thought anything of her performance before. I think i find fault because The constant whining of the main character grated on my nerves.
I like the idea of a fairy tale with princess and a prince. This was why I bought the book. This story was definitely not something I got caught up with.
