Lindsey lives in New England with her family. Once a Princess. Johanna Lindsey. There are many interesting moments between Tanya and Stefan and I really enjoyed their characters. The constant misunderstandings due to self consciousness, stubbornness and arrogance were very entertaining. I also loved the side characters, especially Vasili! Topping off the story is a bit of a mystery due to a blood feud between two families and the adventure of escaping an assassin and you have a full fledged Romance.

Once a Princess
Tanya works in a Mississippi tavern - with dreams of soon owning it herself - when along comes a small group of very arrogant men who tell her she's a lost princess and they're going to take her to her destiny. Yeah, sure, what intelligent woman would believe that line?! So she does her best not to go with them, and they do their best to make sure she does. Pretty much a foregone conclusion, since there are 4 of them against one determined, able-to-take-care-of-herself feisty gal.
Since this is a Tanya works in a Mississippi tavern - with dreams of soon owning it herself - when along comes a small group of very arrogant men who tell her she's a lost princess and they're going to take her to her destiny. Since this is a romance, you know everything's going to work out at the end, but it's the journey that makes this a fun read; and what an action-packed journey it is! I loved the personalities and interactions of the characters. This was a reread for me, and I enjoyed it just as much the 3rd time as I did the first.

I finally got around to reading this last week The hero is very dominant and determined to bring the heroine back to his country, even if it means chasing the heroine and dragging her back kicking and screaming. Don't worry, they fall in love along the way. The only thing that might bot I finally got around to reading this last week The only thing that might bother some people about this book is that the hero does spank the heroine once and threatens to do it again a number of times - but compared to the abuse she suffered as a child, it doesn't really phase her.
But if you're familiar with this author, you probably already know what I mean.

I've had this book sitting in my garage since I was a toddler and just picked it up yesterday out of boredom.
I actually found it quite a good book. Although all the hints are there at first to how the outcome is going to turn out, I didn't quite catch them as I was so consumed with the whole love story. Tanya shows to be not as naive as they picture her and proves to be a better woman from how she was raised.

Despite her harsh upbringing, she's tough, rough, yet she doesn't pass off as one of those rustic whores that everyone assumes her to be. In her own way, she has her air of grace, dignity, but she still doesn't take shit from anyone. And do the men in this book give her a lot. What I loved about her is that while she is resigned to her fate, she still makes the best out of the circumstances.
And she isn't gullible and bimbotic to believe simply anyone that she is of royal blood. I mean, while pursuing the American Dream, what are the chances that one is actually a princess in hiding? Tough luck. Tanya has worked hard to get to where she is toady, and she isn't going to simply believe that she can simply throw all of it away. The risk is too great. But either way, for what she has put up with, she deserves all of her good luck.
Royal blood and all.
This guy is rough to the bones, and doesn't take shit from Tanya either. Hence the clash of wills, a conflict bigger than the blood feud itself. While it is sometimes understandable how he sometimes treat Tanya, I wish he had more communication with her, I mean, she may be a princes, but she sure ain't a mind reader.

And the mistress thing! But personally, because Stefan isn't such a perfect guy, as they usually are in chick lit, I found it absolutely hilarious when Tanya manages to outsmart Stefan. No pity for Stefan, and Tanya didn't look like she was being annoyingly stubborn and hot-headed.
Why, his flaws only served to highlight Tanya's perfection feel free to disagree.

However, by the second half of the book, once all the action waned, my interest in the book just died as well. A pity really, since I was so dead set on awarding this book a solid 5 stars.
Mostly there was just talking, misunderstandings, and making out. On the whole, I was thoroughly entertained, even despite the second half of the book and the very abrupt ending. This author is definitely one I'd watch out for! Another good pre sleep Johanna Lindsey read! Heavily recommended due to me being in book funk, I picked up this series by JL..

They believe she is a long lost princess and take her away from the life she's known, due to a birth mark. She believes she is being kidnapped and her cynicism is the most entertaining part of the book. She never gives up and continues to escape.. She is a great reality check for our men and despite the BS they throw her- she takes it all in stride, with a smile and gives it to them back with a double dose.
