This book takes place during WWII, and starts out as a bit fluffy for me, but if you think of it as a romantic comedy, it's not bad at all.

The princess is introduced as an absolute ditzy twit who has no idea of how the world around her works. It made it a bit hard to believe, but since I've not spent a lot of time with royalty, I suppose their snobbery knows no bounds or time periods.

The lead guy in this book is quite unlikeable at first as well, being a male chauvinist who thinks women are to serve their husbands... but, possibly quite appropriate for the era. For the first half of the book, he spends a few of his nights with other women (insinuated but not detailed) than the princess (even after they're married) so that will throw a person off if you're to assume it's the typical romance where there's instant monogamy.

But, there are things that happen and are said in this book that did make me laugh out loud several times, so it kept me interested and kept me reading. And, I was glad for it, because it turned out to be quite an enjoyable story.

I get such a kick out of Jude Devereaux's characters. Always mouthy, high-spirited, and always introspective. I can often relate to the personalities she describes. Whatever the story, I always enjoy her books because the characterizations are so strong and visual.
