Instantly attracted to handsome 35 year old Trey and he is clearly drawn to her It is very tempting to get to know him without the burden of her princess identity tainting their interaction Finally her heart goes out to his children who have gone through innumerable nannies and are in a very bad place Trey s wife died three years before and Trey s daughter and son are still obviously traumatized by the loss of their mother When Trey sees how well his children respond to Katherine he begs her to become their nanny Katherine impulsively accepts his offer of a jobThis book has a wonderful hero and antastic heroine The passion between them is powerful and their emotional connection is deep and very movingWhat was particularly enjoyable or me as an added bonus over and above even these great things in the story were the scenes where the heroine Kathy interacts as temporary nanny with the children of the hero Trey The daughter is 13 and uite angry and rebellious The son is six almost seven and hasn t spoken in three years He pretends to be a dog and only communicates by barking His name is Doug but his sister calls him Doggie The manner in which Kathy coaxes him back into acting like a little boy again instead of a dog is both hilarious and extremely touching Kathy s relationship with the hero s teenage daughter is great tooI originally read this book in 1999 and I just reread this book in a Kindle edition It is well ormatted and editedThere is one main area of the story that is rather unbelievable to me this time around that I did not notice too much back in 1999 on my Sono with Visits from the Seventh first read of this book That is theact that the heroine is able to get away with giving a Remarkable Creatures fake name to the hero only because he never asks her to show identification to prove who she is and she is not asked as a non US citizen to demonstrate that she is legally able to work in the US Such identification would have immediately blown her undercover operation and it has been reuired by employersor decades in this country not just post 911 However I will admit that many people including prominent politicians have made a habit over the years of paying undocumented workers such as nannies under the table and so might have Trey But it seems a shade too convenient to the story s reuirements to just pretend this legal reality doesn t exist rather than motivating Trey or carelessly overlooking itA likely downside to this story or many readers than the papers please technicality is the Heroes Adrift (Hero, fact that the mystery about the missing prince which is the premiseor the cute meet of the heroine and hero is not resolved in this book This book was originally released by Harleuin as part of the Silhouette Intimate Moments line 968 December 1999 and labeled as Book 2 of the Royally Wed series There are a total of 12 books in this series and the rest of the books were not written by Brockmann but by other Harleuin authors Presumably the mystery about the prince is not Chuck and Danielle fully resolved until the last book of this series This is the only book of that series I myself have readBelow is a complete list of the books in the Royally Wed series only aew of which have so Escaping the Endless Adolescence: How We Can Help Our Teenagers Grow Up Before They Grow Old far been re released by Harleuin in ebookormat A Royal Baby on the Way Book 1Undercover Princess by Suzanne Brockmann Book 2The Princess s White Knight by Carla Cassidy Book 3The Pregnant Princess Book 4ManMercenaryMonarch by Joan Elliott Pickart Book 5Royal Masuerade by Arlene James Book 6AA Royal Marriage by Cara Colter Book 7A Royal Mission by Elizabeth August Book 8The Expectant Princess by Stella Bagwell Book 9Blacksheep Prince s Bride by Martha Shields Book 10Code Name Prince by Valerie Parv Book 11An Officer and a Princess by Carla Cassidy Book 12 I bought this online used as a whim This was apparently part of a series put out by the publisher in which different authors tackled different royal sisters who go in search of their long lost brother the heir to the throne Despite the very hokey premise I enjoyed this book Brockmann s usual Dogs Behaving Badly: An A-Z Guide to Understanding and Curing Behavorial Problems in Dogs flairor characterization carried the story She almost makes me want to read the rest of the series but I have heard that Brockmann s was the best of them all so I will give the others a pas.

Re to support Trey and the rest of the story goes as originally written Much less lame Will keep an eye out Gray Bishop for theirst and third books in the series Undercover Princess by Suzanne Brockmann is apparently part of a series Whatever I picked it up because Suzanne Brockmann is the author of a romantic thriller starring a gay couple and so I now automatically grab whatever she s writing lately because there might be ueer people in it This is my lifeSadly there are no ueer people in Undercover Princess What there is is a lot of weird awkwardness sexual tension and an oddly rushed ending in which the original mystery of the book never gets solved To whit Princess Katherine Wyndham is looking or her long lost brother and runs across as possible lead in business tycoon Troy Sutherland He s a widower suspected by the general populace though not the police of killing his wife who s desperately looking or a nanny to take care of his two children On the spur of the momeny Katherine decides to be Kathy Wind nanny extraordinaire Naturally she and Troy all in love Naturally there s the Big Misunderstanding tm over whether he killed his wife spoiler he did not and whether she intentionally decieved him about being a princess she obviously did but with the best of intentions Even naturally they get married There is zero resolution or the brother plot but since this is part of a series that s probably why Eh it was okay The vast majority of the book with Katherine and Troy alling in love was actually really well done The beginning was pretty good and the child psychology pretty spot on actually the psychology in general is pretty spot on It s a romance but it s also about grief and recovery and that bit is good It s just that the ending the resolution to the Big Misunderstanding tm is really rushed and sort of out of nowhere Though Brockmann did her best to set it up earlier in the book it still eels like the entire climax moves way too Noir fast and resolves things way too uickly especiallyor a book that had been so low key and non dramatic up until then well as non dramatic as you can get in a book about an incognito princess and a tycoon who may have killed his wife That ending just left such a meh impression on me I doubt I ll be reading the rest of the seriesInstead I will reread All Through the Night Because it is a romantic thriller about a gay couple getting married and I will never stop loving it This is a review of the Kindle Edition of Undercover Princess originally released as Silhouette Intimate Moments 968Twenty Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are five year old Princess Katherine Wyndham comesrom a small principality in Europe She is the youngest of her sisters and in her own eyes very plain compared to the other princesses and her mother all of whom are heart stoppingly gorgeous Katherine has had only one love affair up until the moment of the story The man involved used her to get ahead and ultimately dumped her leaving Katherine very cynical about men who know her true identityKatherine s brother the heir to the throne was kidnapped as an infant and her Gaffer family recently has had leads in America as to several possibilitiesor his location One of those leads is Trey Sutherland Her brother was raised in an orphanage and he may currently be Trey s business partner Katherine has been trying unsuccessfully Circumstantial Evidence for days to get an appointment with the reclusive Trey then suddenly when she calls his office his secretary gives her an appointmentor an interview that very day at Trey s home Katherine grabs at this unexpected opportunity and rushes over to Trey s house which appears like a small castle than a home with Trey s office located in a turretKatherine discovers that the reason she has Lone Star Justice: The First Century of the Texas Rangers finally been invited in so readily is that Trey desperately needs a nanny and the secretary assumed that Katherine was applyingor the job Katherine does not want to deceive Trey as to her purpose or seeing him but several things happen to cause her to decide to go undercover starting with telling Trey her name is Kathy Wind First the man who may be her brother is currently out of town on an extended stay and Katherine wants to be around when he next contacts Trey Second Katherine is.
