I truly enjoy reading about opposites falling in love and thought this book would be a bright spot in my day as I relished the idea of the stiff-rumped Sir Ian Moore, brother to bad boy, Dylan Moore of His Every Kiss (Guilty Series), being ramrodded into helping the feisty naughty, beautiful, Italian Lucia find a husband in London.

**Spoilers** But... I didn't relish this book even though all the possibilities were there - just out of the reach of the reader. Sir Ian remained stiff and unmovable during most of the book no matter how hard Lucia tried to catch his attention. In fact, his attention was caught, but not acted upon for most of the book. When he did act, he basically violated her twice - once in the carriage and eventually in Tremore's conservatory the night of her "choosing her husband" ball. Yes, she enjoyed what happened in the carriage, but he never even escorted her out of the carriage and then refused to go around her for several days. She was an innocent for crying out loud. She needed to be held and given some kind words.

Then on the night of her ball where she was to choose a husband from among the three candidates for her hand, Sir Ian refuses to attend and just waits in the conservatory. She comes out and attempts to seduce him, but once he gets going, it's basically a rape. Then, he left her sore and bleeding without any words of love or commitment for three weeks while he went home to Devonshire to get his home ready for her because they had no choice but to get married. Tremore and/or Dylan should have taken a whip to his rear end.

The heroine is Italian and seeths a lot, lifts chin, narrows eyes, etc etc. Gets annoying and rather boring. The hero is OK but his turn from believable character to losing all reasoning and control is particularly unbelievable. Quite glad to finish it in the end. Sorry.

This was ok, not much to say really, felt slightly bored and skipped pages. Did not like the characters enough to care about their involvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Keeper! 30 May 2006
By C. Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm always looking for books that are well written and that have something out of the ordinary to offer. When I find one, quite often it's written by Laura Lee Guhrke. This is just such a one.

Lucia is the passionate, unruly and illegitimate daughter of an Italian Ruler. Sir Ian Moore, the brother of Dylan, who we met in His Every Kiss, is the diplomat who is assigned to marry her off to a British peer who meets all her father's stipulations, none of which Sir Ian qualifies for. She wants to marry for love, he just wants her married so he can go back to his regular duties. Thus begins the battle of wills.

Ms. Guhrke is an excellant writer. The plot, while not being completely new, is not exactly run of the mill, but either way it doesn't matter because it's the characters that make the book. I was extremely happy to see Dylan Moore and his wife Grace again and Isabel is growing up to be a handful. But Lucia is the one to watch for. I wasn't sure I'd like her right at the beginning, but she is fascinating to watch and learn about. A truly different type of heroine. Very Italian, passionate, practical, manipulating, headstrong, loving, caring, all these things are Lucia and more. You really can't put her in a box. We met Sir Ian in His Every Kiss and he is still the stuffy, upright, uptight, oh so perfect diplomat that he's always been. It's a lot of fun to see him drawing closer and closer to a meltdown as Lucia and he engage in a battle of wits. I might have wished that he'd broken down a little sooner, but the way it's played out is so very realistic that I can't really wish for any of it to be played differently. I really can see Lucia driving him mad for the rest of his life... and him loving every minute of it.

A truly great book that had me going back to read it again as soon as I had finished it. That says it all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly annoying heroine and weak story ending 15 Jun. 2007
By Emily in GA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my first book by Ms. Guhrke, but I always like trying out new romance novelists. This plot line consists of a wild, head-strong illegitimate daughter of an Italian prince needing a husband as her father is tired of her misbehavior. A British Diplomat must find a British Peer for her to wed. She doesn't like any of her choices, and yes, this diplomat, Ian, turns out to be just the man for her.

I couldn't get too involved with this novel for several reasons. First, Lucia, the illegitimate daughter, is irritating (as has been mentioned in prior reviews). She is whiney and not terribly likable. I never got why Ian was attracted to her, other than the fact that she is beautiful. Second, the built up to the story climax is very subtle and somewhat tedious. The climax is also very mild, making for a rather flat story. For me, there was too much fluff at the beginning about finding a husband, and not enough focus on developing their relationship. Then when they get together, I was left feeling somewhat cheated. My last complaint was rather minor. This story is theoretically set in the early 19th century, but there was very little focus on developing the story within the historical and cultural context.

So, I've outlined the parts that bugged me, but it is a fair story, and a quick read. It would not make my all-time favorite romance novel list, but I don't regret having read it or bought it.

3.0 out of 5 stars because Guhrke can't write a bad book 16 Feb. 2007
By M. DETWILER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I gave this book 3 stars because of the writing. She's No Princess had the kind of heroine I dislike most--the spoiled little girl who wants her way and won't take no for an answer. I waited a long time to read this book, picked it up at a used book store, and will return it to said store. It was okay--only because Laura G. can't write a bad book. But, the attitude of the heroine kept this from being a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's No Princess 30 Oct. 2006
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Lucia, the illegitimate daughter of an Italian prince, thrives on astonishing and irritating her father. The last straw is when she sneaks out of her father's palace with her legitimate younger sister for a secret night at a carnival. Guards from the palace find them and Lucia is banished from the palace to live with obscure cousins. Not liking that, she escapes and goes to London to live with her courtesan mother. Lucia's father hears of this and in order to keep his younger daughter's engagement to an upstanding family intact, Lucia must be married off and quickly without scandal. Trusting very few, the prince calls on the one man that he trusts in England to help him arrange a not so royal wedding, Sir Ian Moore.

Ian Moore can't believe his ears. What is the prince of Bolgheri thinking? He is a diplomat, not a matchmaker! He has negotiated treaties and ended skirmishes with his diplomacy and now he is being reduced to babysitter. Ian reluctantly agrees to the assignment with the hope that he can see Lucia married in six weeks. The plan is noble, until he meets her. Instantly upon making her acquaintance, Ian fights his attraction because he knows that it is not proper. Now he just has to tell his heart.

Lucia fights the man that her father has chosen to find her a groom. She gives nothing and makes life difficult at best. That is, until she gets to know him and then she finds him honorable, attractive, and things get complicated. Lucia has six weeks. Six weeks to make him love her because if he doesn't, then she will have to marry someone else.

She's No Princess by Laura Lee Guhrke is a remarkable read. I laughed, cried, and became heartsick at the emotions it invoked. While Ian's intentions were honorable, I could sense his pain and in turn, She's No Princess became difficult to read. Not because the story wasn't well written, it was. I was amazed at the emotions it dragged out of me while reading it. I thought it a most wonderful story and would recommend this book to anyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars lighthearted historical romance 31 May 2006
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Prince Cesare of Bolgheri has had enough with the inappropriate behavior of his illegitimate offspring, whom he recently brought to his palace, though he blames all on her mother a courtesan. Sending Lucia to schools for troubled ladies and convents have only led to scandals and her being tossed out. At the end of his rope he decides his adult daughter needs a spouse to keep her in line; if nothing else Lucia would be someone else's royal pain in the butt.

Prince Cesare chooses highly regarded English diplomat, perfectly mannered Sir Ian Moore to find his devilish daughter a husband. Ian wants nothing to do with this impossible assignment as he knows of Lucia's hellcat ways and not just by reputation, but His Highness gives him no choice in the matter. Ian sets a goal to get Lucia off his hands by marrying her to off to some fool aristocrat. Candidates line up as Lucia is pretty, energetic, and wealthy. However, none in Ian's mind matches her élan for life except for one sleeper aspirant; Ian has fallen in love with the exasperating fireball and Lucia reciprocates those feelings though she recognizes that the prim and proper Englishman is her total opposite.

SHE'S NO PRINCESS is a lighthearted historical romance starring two 180 degrees diverse individuals who make a strong case that opposites attract. The amusing story line is fun to read as Ian has his hands filled with the unpredictable Lucia whether it is chess, billiards, or kisses. Regency romance readers will appreciate Laura Lee Guhrke's fine tale.
