We had met both the hero and heroine in the previous book, the heroine was infatuated with Rule, the hero's brother for years while the hero Alex, had changed after four years of captivity in Afghanistan. When the book opens all hell has broken loose, the heroine is pregnant with the hero's baby after losing her virginity one emotional day when she finds out Rule is married.
Their family makes them get married and in a way so does the hero by promising the heroine that I really enjoyed this book. Their family makes them get married and in a way so does the hero by promising the heroine that he would try to make their marriage work but he does not do that instead he tries to maintain his distance from her. The heroine is kind of a romantic who wanted love but is making the best of her situation, she gives up on the hero though internally she is still planning, things change when they are stranded together and open up. The hero still makes a dumb move and the heroine leaves him.
He comes chasing after her. I did find one of the moves the heroine made stupid especially keeping in mind what the hero had gone through, the book still kept me engaged. View 2 comments.

When Alex's parents insist on them taking a public honeymo Very good book and very emotional. When Alex's parents insist on them taking a public honeymoon and making it look like they are happy, he knows he has no choice. I really liked both Lili and Alex. My heart ached for Alex. He has always felt apart from his family, like he doesn't quite fit in. Then he was kidnapped in Afghanistan and spent four years in captivity, losing his best friend who was there with him. He was drowning in guilty feelings because his friend wouldn't have been there except for him.
When he returned home he avoided being around people whenever he could, spending time training the palace security forces. His night with Lili was something unexpected and unwelcome because being with her made him start to feel again. So he avoided and ignored her until confronted with her pregnancy. Even after the wedding he tried to avoid her until they were forced on their trip. When they snuck away one night and then were stranded on an island, Alex found himself letting go of his unhappiness.
I loved seeing him start to come back to life and enjoy being with Lili. He also finally talked to her about his experiences and found that it helped him. He still didn't feel that he could be the husband that she needed until he dealt with the last of his past. His refusal to accept her help nearly cost him everything and he had to work to win her back. Lili was quite a strong character. She appeared to be naive and shallow, but she had an inner core of strength that she needed when dealing with Alex. She didn't want to marry him at first because she really wanted to marry for love.
When she realized she had no choice, she went to Alex and got him to agree to try to make their marriage work, not knowing he was lying to her to make sure she would go through with it. I loved the way that she kept trying to get through to him, even on their trip.
When they made their escape and then got stranded, I loved the way that she made the best of everything. She also did a fantastic job of keeping after Alex and eventually got him to open up. When they returned home and he left her to deal with his past, she was hurt and angry. She finally decided she was done being the one making all the effort and left him to come after her.
I loved seeing what he did and how he got her to see him. It was great to see Alex finally overcome the darkness that had been a part of him for so long. Mar 04, Melody Cox rated it it was amazing. Alexander was kidnapped and held prisoner for four years, his family believing him dead. Since his escape and return to his loving family he has been a cold and distant man, tuning inward, solitary. After Liliana received bad news from the Bravo-Callabretti man she always thought she would wed, she finds comfort in Alexander's arms and in his bed.
A one-night stand that she soon discovers has produced a royal baby and the families demand they marry. Unfortunately for Lily it is a marriage in name only and Alexander is causing her endless heartache and pain. Alex is trying desperately to maintain the barriers he has erected against the lovely Lili. But after posing for the paparazzi Alex begins to wish this marriage was for real. This story takes you from a castle to a yacht to a deserted island to America and back home again.
The adventure are unique and romantic as well. This is my favorite book in the series so far and I highly recommend it. Nov 04, Susan Dalley rated it it was ok. I love Christine Rimmer, but I didn't care too much for this book. I know in romance that the characters go through struggles to get to their happy ending, but I have no patience when the struggles are because the characters are stupid and play games. Nov 01, Nicole Michele rated it really liked it. Bravo Royals reread.
Mar 14, Diane Holiday rated it really liked it. I thought this was a sweet romance and a perfect "light read. It held my interest and had tender moments. A nice read. Shelves: marchromances-read , harlequin-romance-novels , bravo-royal-series. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not too heavy of a book and that is one book I needed to read right now. In the story, we are dealt with several issues including PTSD, the truth that even in a book that a HEA isn't always easy, and in order to achieve trust in a relationship you must have open communication with honesty.
I loved Lili. She was so full of what you first thought was innocence but you could see as the sto The book, The Prince She had to Marry by Christine Rimmer, was an excellent happy read. She was so full of what you first thought was innocence but you could see as the story progressed that she had some spunk to show people. Instead of being a doormat to people she actually learned to stand up for herself.
When she did conquer standing up for what her needs were, she actually started to receive respect from her husband. Alex had several issues hanging over him that he felt like he had to handle on his own and at the cost of his pride it complicated his life even more. The Life Swap. Texas Rebels. Rx for Love.
