marame reviewed His Royal Love-Child (Royal Brides, Bk 2) (Harlequin Presents, No 2541) on
Helpful Score: 1
I'm not usually a fan of the Presents line, but I read this when I was traveling in Scotland and desperate to read something. I was sucked in by the Scorsolini family. They're very arrogant but when they fall, they fall extremely hard. Make sure you read the others in the series: The Prince's Virgin Wife (Tomasso & Maggie) and The Scorsolini Marriage Bargain (Claudio & Therese). They're all pretty good reads.
Danette Michaels is an average working girl, who cautiously enters into an affair with her hot prince of a boss. Neither Danette or Marcello believe that the relationship is long-term. Danette has been burned by love, and Marcello has previously been married. Sporadic dates, however, effectively turn into much, much more . . . Danette and Marcello's relationship is interesting and compelling, which makes this book a page-turner and a keeper!
From the back cover:
Danette Michaels knew that when she became Principe Marcello Scorsolini's secret mistress there would be no marriage, no future and no public acknowledgment. At the time it was enough.
But Danette can't be Marcello's secret any longer. She wants him, all or nothing even if it means their affair is over.
