Media consultant Veronica St. John has been hired to teach a rugged Navy SEAL to impersonate a European prince who's been targeted by terrorists. But one conversation and Veronica knows there's no way she can turn streetwise New Yorker Joe Catalanotto into nobility. Joe, on the other hand, is confident he's got what it takes. Two days isn't a lot of time to get the job done...but it's enough time to fall in love.

“Ms. Brockmann is a one-of-a-kind storyteller!” (Romantic Times)
What story line there was I liked but there was a lot of interaction, interaction, interaction between the main characters that got to be a little much.
Not sure but I will not listen to any other books in this series
I selected this book because the ratings were so high but I wasn't impressed. I don't know of any man, particularly a Navy SEAL that would talk or act like the male character in this book. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen or for the story to be less predictable but it never did. I was really happy when I got to the end and it was over. I just didn't want to listen anymore it wasnt interesting enough.
A navy SEAL being a body double for a prince with a death threat and the female character falling in love with him (in 3 days). She ends up in danger, he saves her, she realized she wants to marry him after 2 weeks, story over. Ugh, not very creative, must have been a slow couple of months and Ms Brockman ran out of ideas.
Sorry for all of you that gave this 5 stars but I didn't get it (and really wish I had not wasted my credit!)
Not only couldn't I finish it...........I only got through seven chapters. Kept hoping it would get better, but never did! The book is based on a silly plot which kept getting worse and worse. This is Pygmalion on speed!!............my first and last Brockmann book.
I wish I had read the reviews (or at least read this was a Harlequin book) before purchasing, but unfortunately, I did neither and bought the book, hoping for a light, fun listen. I lasted about an hour and a half, mainly out of a vain hope that it would get better. The majority of the 90 minutes was spent detailing an attraction between two characters; over and over and over and over. Mental note to self: next time you purchase a book, read the reviews first.
I don't really like it. Lots of internal dialog about what the two main characters think about each other, and not much else. Well, that's how it's been for a little over 4 hours of it. I'm starting to get annoyed with it. Hopefully things will get better.
Seldom is a book so bad on so many levels. The plot is ridiculous, the writing is banal, and the dialog is pathetic. Joe is supposed to be a tough Navy Seal with New Jersey working class roots, but he babbles on like Ernest Borgnine "Marty."
I'm in it for fun and my ability to suspend belief is elastic, but this one sounds like it was written by a girl in junior high.
