    "Honestly my Favorite! "

    I LOVE her books, and I can not get enough of Prince Charming. I have read this book at least 20 times, and now I have listened to it at least once a week for the past 6 months. the author is amazing as well as the narrator Roslyn definitely worth the buy!

    "Top of the List"

    If I make a list of my favorite 20 books, this one would be top of the list.

    The story is solid and the characters are all very strong and believable. There is not just one wonderful love story, but two, and both are sweet believable stories with no overabundance of sex which doesn't fit into the story.

    There are also some wonderful secondary characters - truly characters- that give the story fun and interest.

    Definitely on worth listening to more than once.

    "Beautiful Love Story.... A Sure Classic"

    I read this book from time to time when I am craving something calming & steady. This story is a classic and has become one of my favorite Julie Garwood books. I just love the story of Lucas Ross (the epitome of masculinity & gorgeousness--American Man) & Taylor Stapelton (lovely English Lady).

    Although I have to admit that when I read it for the first time, I was also frustrated by the same type of things other reviewers have complained about, such as the slow pace during the first part.

    I think the worst part of the book is when Taylor's friend Victoria is introduced. I was so enchanted with the development of the love story between Lucas & Taylor that when Victoria was introduced in the storyline I was like, "what the....????" I felt like she was more of a distraction from the real story---Lucas & Taylor, because their attraction was magnetic & pretty potent from the start. I think Garwood messed up in the way she introduced Victoria. It was long, unnecessary & well...slow. I, for one, didn't know whether to be jealous for Taylor or angry at Lucas because he was paying so much attention to her. However, I suppose Lucas was really nice to her because she reminded him of his mother. Victoria was never a distraction to Lucas in his conquest of love for Taylor.

    Anyhow, once the story gets on track and the plot develops, you really understand why Victoria is necessary & great part of the story.

    One of the reasons I revisit this book from time to time is because of the sweetness in the love affair. Lucas adores Taylor & one of my favorite parts is when he caresses & pulls her into him for more loving embraces & kisses after they make love (Lucas Ross is a cuddler...LOL).

    Also, Lucas studies Taylor well (mainly because the man can't keep his eyes off of her!!!), and is truly her knight in shinning armor--or should we say her Prince Charming. Taylor is quite a lady herself. She is more like a modern-day woman...the kind that can do it all. She is loving, effortlessly beautiful inside & out and is not pretentious in any way. She reaches out to others around her and is like the glue that makes everything work. She creates a loving home environment for everyone who needs her love.

    As a PLUS---the love match between Hunter & Victoria was just perfect! I thought they had a really funny beginning & then a deeper wow-effect in their relationship. It is so cool how both Lucas & Taylor's best friends find love together...just perfect!

    In addition, the sweet children, Georgie, Ali and Michael (Daniel-David) were also such sweet additions to his classic story. They just make your heart melt.

    I tear up EACH TIME at the end when the grandmother, Lady Esther, is mentioned. She is the one who had the foresight to create a wonderful future with the needs of her girls (Taylor & the twins) in mind.---There couldn't have been a better ending. Lady Esther, loving grandmother found Taylor's Prince Charming.

    The William Shakespeare quotes were fabulous! LOVE THIS BOOK!!

    NARRATOR:
    I LOVE Rosalyn Landor as a narrator!!! She is just superb! Yes, I even loved the voicing she made for Lucas Ross. She brings everything to life. THis is why I am addicted to audiobooks---due to fabulous narrators as herself.

    Story
    "I loved this book!"

    The usual HR elements are here, but with an awesome twist! She is a lady who must marry to be free of the evil control of an abusive uncle. Her grandmother is dying, and out of love, she chooses an American husband for her, and tells her to trust him. He marries her for his own reasons, and tells her in a brutally candid moment that he'd rather be hung than married. He also admits that he promised her grandmother that he would protect her and see her settled before going back to his own life. She feels guilty that he's giving up so much for her and is determined not to be a burden to him. Misunderstandings ensue.

    What HE doesn't know is that our heroine has an obsession with Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, and has read all the books about them. She has also prepared for the life she wants, and dreams of a life lived in the wilds of America. She isn't the fragile flower he thinks she is.

    I felt like I traveled throught the US of 1860, and I loved every minute. The scenes in the wilderness town called Redemption, are a particular treat, and the 19 male inhabitants of Redemption greet her with a comical and sweet adoration that made that part of the book particularly fun to read. I would love to find other HR's with a similar setting.

    What I don't get is why I waited so long to read this, since I love Julie Garwood. I think it may have been some of the so so reviews that I read, and again, I've learned my lesson. If there was ever a book to take a chance on, this one is it. I LOVED it!

    One thing more --- when I got to the end, I felt like there either must be a third part that I missed downloading, or a sequel. There were a few things I would have loved some resolution on, but overall, this one is perfect. I guess that's just how you feel when you don't want a book to end. {sigh}

    Highly recommended!

    Story
    "Duerden's hero is weak, but the others are fine"

    Good story. I had already read it before listening. Be aware this story includes children (which I liked in this case). Be aware of explicit sex scenes (a few). Two couples fall in love, so the pages devoted to each couple are limited. Very good narration, except for Duerdan's rendition of Lucas Ross, the "mountain man" hero. He sounds like he is speaking without fully opening his mouth. Rather blah. Not how I had imagined this bad-ass warrior of superstar fame. He did nothing for me. Nothing at all. In fact, Duerdan's impression of Lucas almost ruined a favorite story. On the other hand, Duerdan's take on Lady Esther, the old English lady, is solid gold. Nice job portraying Lady Taylor and Lady Victoria, the two heroines. She conveyed believable voices for the three children, too -- and not too squeaky, as some narrators do.

    "Mixed Emotions"

    This is a hard book/audio for me to rate. The first few hours were slow. Later, disturbing content had me wondering if I wanted to finish it, not knowing how bad it was going to get, but I continued to listen. As it progressed it got better, and I was happy with the way it ended.

    Yet, with all I considered negatives, I continued to listen--wanting to see how it played out. I think it was the excellent performance by Rosalyn Landor that kept my attention -- like a movie whose talented actors carry the story.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I thought the narration was a little off on this one. The characters were flat and presented that way. The men's voices were distracting and Taylor's....ugh.


    Did Prince Charming inspire you to do anything?

    Almost not finish it

    "Skipped lots of it."
    What disappointed you about Prince Charming?

    I have read or listened to most of Ms. Garwood's historical fiction and thoroughly enjoyed them. This was just dull. The first 9 chapters should have been one. I couldn't keep myself from skipping to the next chapter in hopes of some action. I liked the characters, especially the hero. I even liked the set-up and the overall plot. It just took too long to describe what was happening, and included so much trivial junk, that I would skip to the next chapter. Wished for better.
