Book Description

18 Jun 2007 Marcelli Sisters
The beloved Marcelli family's saga wouldn't be complete without Mia's story. She may be the youngest of the family, but her life is certainly not lacking in drama! When the father of Mia's son - the man she believed died years ago - suddenly turns up in her bedroom claiming he's someone else entirely, Mia is in for an even bigger surprise. It turns out their son is the heir of the Prince of Calandria and he's come back to claim what's his. But does he also want to reclaim Mia's heart?

so glad I was one of those readers and fan of Susan's Mallery who asked for Mia's story and I wasn't disappointed! I loved the Marcelli series and Mia's story was no exception. It was delightful, entertaining, shed a few tears. However, what I most loved about this book was it brought out Susan Mallery's charm and sense of humor!

Mia plus her sisters taking on a crown Prince? If you've read the series, then one would appreciate this aspect and the family dynamics. That's the appeal of the series and this particular book.......Mia, her son, the crown prince and the Marcelli family.

As for lessons, there are many to be learned like what's important in life, what does love really mean to a person? What can respect, love and determination bring into a relationship? Not to mention, family values, traditions and holding each member close and dear to each of them.

The book for me was a wonderful ending. I thought Mia was strong, fierce, determined and passionate. As for Crown Prince Rafael, he was brought to his knees by Mia and her family! Loved it!

Again, Susan Mallery has delivered a wonderful story and series and one I shall long remember! Thank you Susan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 7 Oct 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dreadful. I wanted to like this book like I had liked the others in the series, but Rafael was a completely unsympathetic character and I don't understand WHAT Mia saw in him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best 21 Mar 2007
By S. Cochran - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I usually love Susan Mallery's books, and have loved the others in this series about the Marcellis. The best part of this one is the updates on all the characters from the previous books. I still liked Mia in this book, but Rafael was unlikeable, and his sudden change in behavior at the end did not ring true to his personality in the rest of the book.

Also, I know this is nitpicking, but where was the Secret Service?? Joe is married to the President's daughter, and they live on the same property, yet this Prince broke into the house, and his bodyguards roamed freely with guns. For some reason I could not get past that, and it hindered my enjoyment of the story somewhat. Wouldn't the President's daughter have Secret Service protection?

It was not a bad book, just not one of her best.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 6 Mar 2007
By Seriously - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Susan Mallery is becoming one of those hit or miss writers for me. Either she does it really well (i.e. The Sassy One, The Seductive One) or she completely throws you for a loop (Sizzling, The Marcelli Princess). I was really disappointed in The Marcelli Princess because I love this series, but the hero and heroine in this last installment are both annoying. I literally forced myself to keep reading. For an independent woman Mia relies too much on her family, lovely as they are, and Rafael's archaic sensibility makes him almost irredeemable. In my opinion, the best thing about this book is the chemistry that happens when the two are alone and the fact that we get to see how the beloved Marcellis from previous installments have fared. My recommendation: Get it from the library if you must, but don't buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hugely disappointing end to a once great series 19 April 2007
By Tracy Vest - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
When former CIA agent Mia Marcelli wakes up to find a stranger in her bed, she's shocked to learn that he's the lover she mourned for the last five years. Instead of being an international thief named Diego, he's actually crown prince of the tiny principality of Calandria (think Monaco), who assumed Diego's identity to trap his band of merry thieves. Mia has a surprise for Prince Rafael - in the form of their four year old son Danny. But Rafael already knows about Danny; in fact, he was sent by the King to retrieve Danny so that he can take his place in Calandrian society as heir to the throne. He is not above bribery or seduction to get his way. When Mia finds out about his true intentions, will her love for him (or is it Diego?) be strong enough to forgive his treachery?

Mallery's final installment in the Marcelli family series is a major let down. Never mind the suspension of time (less than a year since the last book in the series was published, and she wasn't even an agent yet), the children that age faster than in a soap opera, and the lack of chemistry between the two main characters. The plot starts out interesting, but the execution is rather boring, the dialogue stilted, and the "hero" so unsympathetic (and his sudden change of heart unconvincing), that I'm sure more than one reader wished she got back with her teen fiance, David instead of investing further tears on her Euro-trash prince. Let's just hope there's no story for Kelly in the works to further tarnish the Marcelli name.

I had pretty high expectations going in, particularly since the previous novel was so good. Rather than going out with a bang telling the most colorful of the Marcelli children's stories, Mallery instead ends the series on a sour note. I was also disappointed in another Mallery release ("Sizzling" from the Buchanan series) this year; perhaps Mallery needs to worry more about quality and less about churning out quantity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing likable about a main character 3 Mar 2007
By Echidna - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I do enjoy Mallery's books - particularly her recent ones. But this one was painful.

The other reviewer was polite when referring to "Rafael's firm belief in duty above all else." I would have called him a manipulative, overgrown child who thinks the world exists to serve him and his family. For example, Rafael objects that 3-year-old Danny isn't the lead in the school play, but instead plays a tree. And he also tells Mia that she "shouldn't discourage Danny from knowing his own importance" after the boy whines that he is the best.

That said, Rafael seems ultimately redeemable for the first half. Then Mia - and the reader - discover just how deceptive his plans are. And it was so truly vile that I found it impossible to get past.

There's also a sub-plot involving a Marcelli-by-marriage that seems to exist solely for the purpose of having another book in the series. Two and a half stars (barely)

2.0 out of 5 stars Bleh!! 26 Mar 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I hated it!! For one reason only the lead male character had no depth, he was completely one dimensional. He didn't even do the arrogant prince role well.His feelings for Mia appeared to be completely sexual there was really zero chemistry.. I'm sure that his alter ego Diego has to have been much much more fascinating. All the other characters in the book had much much more depth. The book had such great potentiial!
