Book Description

One night is about to change Bella's life for ever...



Bella Greenwood isn't a fairytale girl. If pushed, she'd probably tell you that her perfect wedding would involve a handful of close friends and family. But as she's never met anyone she'd like to marry, it's a moot point.



Until, in a midnight garden, Bella is helped out of an embarrassing situation by a tall, dark, handsome man with laughing eyes. And suddenly her life changes for ever, because the man is the world's most eligible bachelor: Prince Richard, heir to the throne.



Richard sweeps her off her feet, and before she knows it they're engaged. Which is when Bella's problems really begin. Suddenly she is public property, and as if it isn't enough to have her every move watched - while also learning to curtsy and negotiating the etiquette of how to address her future mother-in-law - she soon finds herself embroiled in bridesmaid politics, a right royal hen night, and a wedding dress controversy that causes a national scandal...



Can this ordinary girl survive the preparations for her very own Royal Wedding?

Review

`They're characters you can relate to - even the parallel universe king, queen, prince and princess came off the page royally. It's of the moment... a well-written, well-researched and entertaining read. What more can you ask?' --The Bookbag - 4 star review

The ultimate romantic fairytale novel

5.0 out of 5 stars Should have the Royal seal of approval! 31 Mar. 2011
By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The book begins with Bella Greenwood not knowing Prince Richard at all. In fact, she's left a bit bereft after her return from her travels and finding herself with nowhere to live after her parents say they're too busy to put their daughter up. I really did like Bella right from the start - she's a very normal and believable character, she wants to work hard and is really close to her best friend Charlotte (Lottie). Because of her travels, its very plausible that she doesn't know who Prince Richard is properly but I'd like to think if I bumped into Prince William at a party, drunk or not, I'd be very aware of who he was! Either way, it does make the story a little more fairy-tale like.

As well as Bella being a lovely character, I really liked Prince Richard all the way through the book. Page puts across really well how Richard's conflicting emotions about being a Royal and the heir to the throne conflicts with his own personal feelings towards Bella, especially as she isn't from his world, and how he wants to protect her from his less-than-private public life. There were times he wasn't too nice but again it is understandable in the context of the story, and I liked that their relationship wasn't perfect 100% of the time, it certainly made for more realistic reading. Lottie, Bella's best friend, was another good character - it's important for writers to get female friendships right and Page certainly has with the girls' friendship in this book. We all need a considerate best friend like Lottie!

While the book starts with Bella not knowing Prince Richard, we don't actually get to see the Royal Wedding at all, this book is rather more about the relationship between Bella and Prince Richard, and the complexities of the engagement and forthcoming nuptials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Royal wedding 14 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I expected there to be lots of books with this theme and was not going to read any of them. But, I'm a romantic and yes, a Royalist, and I'd heard Ms Page could write.
And she can, beautifully.
I read it, in three sittings, very early in the morning, and each morning laughed so much, not at Bella and her believable predicaments, but with her. Poor girl comes back from a year counting fish , is ignored by the social climbing mother - who turns out not to be so awful, and goes to a party with her friend, Lottie. (We should all have/be a friend like her!) She falls over a plant and is rescued by, yes, you've guessed it. She doesn't recognize him -well she had knocked down all the lights, and it goes from there. Richard and Bella, Bella's Right Royal Republican father, Lady Pansy are beautifully portrayed and are so real. We feel for the young couple with every twist of the plot and are so happy at the lovely ending. It's a very funny book but not over written in the manner adopted by two many writers who throw in pages of one liners. (That's not funny at all.) I won't spoil it by telling you the funny bits but just let's say that Scottish Country Dancing and a wee stroll in St James's Park will never be the same again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Royal Wedding! 27 April 2011
Format:Paperback
Perfect for 2011, was the release of To Marry A Prince by Sophie Page. I picked it up for that very reason, and thought that as it's the week of the very real Royal Wedding, it was a perfect time to read the book.

We meet Bella Greenwood, who has been away for the past year working on a remote island. She only went as she thought she was in love with a guy who went there. However, a year later, once she realises it isn't love, she hot-tails it home back to London and moves in with best friend, Lottie. At a party Bella gets into a bit of difficulty with an ivy plant, and along comes Prince charming to her rescue.

In reality Prince charming is an actual Prince. Bella just doesn't know it. He's Prince Richard, and he falls hard for Bella as she treats him as "normal". 3 months into their relationship, their private relationship is found-out by the public, so Richard proposes, to which he and Bella enter a whirl-wind of marriage preperation, hen nights, and a Royal Family that want to control Bella as much as possible! Will the wedding happen? Can Bella survive the wedding preperations? And can she ever learn to curtsey? All is revealed in a jam-packed ending.

To be honest, i was about 20 pages into this book and didn't think i was going to enjoy it. For some reason, i just couldn't get "into it". Deciding to persevre (i HATE giving up on books), i must admit that i did enjoy it.

I'm not sure if Sophie Page wrote this book with the real Royal Wedding in mind, but it's a good escapism book, perfect for this time of year.

4.0 out of 5 stars To Marry A Prince 4 April 2011
By Vicki @ Cosy Books VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Firstly I'll just say that other than mild irritation at the inconvenience caused with childcare arrangements that day (schools and holiday clubs closed, shops are not and yeah, I work in one) I'm not that interested in the Royal Wedding. I might switch the TV on to get a glimpse of the dress if I remember but that's it. So you may be surprised to hear that I actually really liked To Marry A Prince by Sophie Page. It's fun, cute and romantic and all round great read.

I guess every girl at some point has had the Cinderella dream. I'm no different and the fact Bella Greenwood gets hers really appeals. Of course deep down I would hate to be marrying a prince. I couldn't cope with the media attention, protocol and tradition. Sophie Page picks up on what it would be like to be thrust under the spotlight by falling for the most eligible bachelor in the world with hilarious results. I liked Bella a lot. She's brave, feisty and doesn't bow or scrape to her in laws to be. Go girl. The attraction between Bella and Prince Richard (fictional Prince Of Wales in this book) is genuinely romantic and I was fully invested in both characters and wishing them well.

Personally, I have never seen the attraction of Prince William. Gimme a bad boy on a motorbike with tats and muscles any day. Prince Richard however did capture my heart just a teeny bit. Ok, I got a crush on him. He's handsome, sexy, passionate and strong; definitely not what I was expecting! I liked how he was so torn between his loyalties and felt very sorry for him at times.

To enjoy this book you really need to be able to suspend belief quite a bit, you know some of things in this book would never happen and if this would annoy you then I'd say pass on it.
