The story is a bit overdone 20 Jun. 2013
By The Book Reading Gals - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Title: One Night Heir

Series: N/A

Author: Lucy Monroe

Genre: Romance

Blurb: Only a royal wedding...

Bitter life lessons have taught Crown Prince Maksim Yurkovich that duty must come before desire. His country needs an heir, so when he discovers his lover can't have children, he must sever their ties. Only Maks can't resist spending one last night in her bed.

...can avert this royal scandal!

Now he faces the biggest diplomatic crisis of his life. Against all odds, Gillian Harris has become pregnant. Maks's royal reserve masks the heart of a fierce Cossack warrior-one who is not above using their mutual passion to convince a hurt, wary Gillian that she must be his queen!

Thoughts: Maksim has vowed to himself to never fall in love - however, he is attracted to and admires the lovely Gillian - and is even prepared to offer her marriage. Until his plan is foiled when her health screening comes back stating that she has a very low chance or being able to conceive and carry a baby to term. But their wires become crossed - Gillian opens the results, but due to a phone call has failed to read them! She is fully expecting Maks to make their relationship permanent. When he breaks up with her instead, she is heartbroken. And stunned when she finds herself pregnant! Can Maks then convince her to give him another chance?

The story is a bit overdone - even for Harlequin. I have read so many variations of this type of book, and this book falls right into those standards. That is not necessarily a bad thing. If you're a fan of Harlequin romances this is right up your alley - especially if you love the storylines involving royalty. Monroe is one of those authors that can crank out a good romance novel with a flick of her fingers, and I have enjoyed many a novel by her over the years.

I really enjoyed Gillian's character - she didn't follow meekly along with Maks and his plans or ideals. Even to the point of being ready to have him hauled out by security! She was firm in her beliefs, passionate when it came to doing was best for her baby, yet not spiteful or vindictive. In fact, for me she acted more in the lines with royalty than Maks did - at least when it came to grace of character.

Maks was a bit harder to take - he had this very `proper', arrogant way of talking that just grated on my nerves at many points throughout the book. The fact that he was willing to just toss Gillian aside when he found out about her fertility issues kind of made me angry. I could understand that he needed heirs to the throne and he wanted a female who could have them (didn't like it, but plausible). What really made me angry was the fact that he was totally willing to disregard going through fertility treatments for her so they could be together because he didn't want to risk having `multiples'. If he cared for her the way he said, he would have been willing to do that in order to be with her! He agreed to later on however, when talking about future children - once he already found out that she was pregnant! He always seemed like he was doing her `favors' by conceding certain points to her. I just really thought he had an awfully high opinion of himself. While I understand he was a Prince, I thought a bit more humility to his character would have made him more likeable. He definitely could have used a little more groveling in the book! He wasn't horrible, but he wasn't one of my favorite male characters.

All in all, if you really love the `royalty' spin on romance stories, you'll like this book. Monroe's skillful writing, and Gillian's character alone make it worth the read!

Sooo...h fault again, right? 5 July 2013
By Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I almost liked this story but I was so annoyed that the h was blamed for not fighting for a H that had dumped her that I could not enjoy the rest of the story. I just cannot understand how when a H dumps a h, how in the world does that get turned into "you didn't fight for us?" I was very disappointed because the H would have been redeemable. He was not a complete jerk and I actually believed that he felt badly. However, the author not only placed blame on the h for "allowing" the H to walk away from her but also failed to redeem the H. There was really no reason to believe that the H really loved the h and that he would have married her if not for her being pregnant. Of course he wanted her NOW, of course he didn't want her to walk away. He was getting everything he wanted, no hard choice there. That was not the issue. The issue was that the H only wanted the h if she was able to provide a child, she does, he keeps her. That does not seem like love to write about, it seemed more convenient than romantic. In the end, he does admit he loves the h but by that same logic, didn't he love her when he decided to walk away from her too? The only difference was that now she was going to give him the heir that he wanted. Perhaps if the author would have devoted more time in the H winning the h back or if there was more actions from the H that demonstrated that he loved the h without the baby or above all things then I would have liked the story.

disappointing... 3 July 2013
By Ree - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Poor Gillian....expressing her love before the H commits himself! Somehow this puts me off a story. Though the h is a strong charactered woman she makes herself so vulnerable to the H whose priorities lie elsewhere. I don't think he deserved her at all. She accuses him of not loving her, which is ridiculous, because either you love or you don't. He is more practical than emotional which probably his position demands but doesn't say much about his feelings for her. His realization of his love for her seems almost a convenience for all around. If it wasn't for the baby(he is already dating other women!), I doubt he would have gone back to her. A rather disappointing read.

Battle of wills between hero & heroine. Look forward to next in series! 6 July 2013
By Miranda Owen - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is book 1 in the "By His Royal Decree" series. Maksim Yurkovich is Crown Prince of Volyarus. From an early age, duty to the throne and his people was drilled into him. He also grew up witnessing his parents' dysfunctional relationship. At the opening of this story, you see Maks enjoying a romantic relationship with Gillian Harris. He is all set and eager to propose until a wrench is thrown into his plans. He was able to catch a look at a recent physical Gillian had. In the results, it mentioned something in her medical past that led Maks to believe the odds of her being able to get pregnant and give birth were extremely low. Even though Maks claims to not believe in love, to say that he was disappointed by the findings would be a gross understatement. However, duty to his royal office is intrinsic to who he is. Providing heirs to the throne is something he feels obligated to do. Gillian is devastated when Maks breaks up with her. The irony is that the reason he did so was because he believed she couldn't conceive, but he finds out that she recently found out that she was pregnant with Maks's child. He, of course, goes to her and demands they marry right away. She is still hurting over the breakup and doesn't want to marry if he doesn't love her. She tells him that if he loved her, he never would have let her go so easily. She lectures him about the importance of love, what it is, and how it's worth fighting for. He, very astutely, counters by saying that by Gillian's own definition she must not have really loved him since she let him go so easily and didn't fight for him. I enjoyed the verbal dueling (never got really nasty) and the battle of wills between this hero & heroine. You could see both points of view and how the dysfunctional relationships both sets of parents had on their decisions and insecurities. I also loved watching Maks try to woo Gillian and make her feel about him as she once did. Very sexy. The next book in this series is "Prince of Secrets" also by Lucy Monroe.

A little like the others! 7 Aug. 2013
By Pam's Reviews - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Lucy's work and I enjoyed this one but....I feel like the women who get tossed aside so easily by the guys in these books go back to fast. I sit there ready for just one of them to have a spine. I keep praying they will make the guy a little work harder to make up for being so heartless but its like " Let me lay down again so i'll be ready for you to walk on me ". Its not just this book. Its most books in the Harlequin venue. Don't get me wrong I really like these books but give these women a little more backbone please!!!!!
