I love Julie Garwood's historical books and listening on audiobooks is wonderful, the stories come to life. I have all of her books and am slowly picking up the audiobooks too.

I read this story two years ago and I can still remember snatches of dialouges between characters. Colin has to be my favourite hero and Alessandra and heroine. I loved their bulter Flannaghan too as he was so very funny when he first saw Alessandra at the door. To those who haven't read this book yet, do read it. I'll wager you won't be dissapointed.

Princess Alesandra is exactly the gal to domesticate the work driven, suave confirmed bachelor, Colin. The suspenseful anticipation of their sensual saga is just why romance novels are loved.
Be sure to read the entire series: 1. The Lion's Lady 2. The Guardian 3. The Gift 4. Castles

I really liked this book and can say it is one of my Garwood favorites. It seemed to have a lot more plot to it than some of her other novels and it was refreshing to have a female heroine who was a bit different from Garwood's other females. Alessandra was so intelligent, very detailed and organized, and wasn't quite as naive as the usual Garwood female (who goes tumbling about not thinking about what she's doing). I liked how Alessandra was the one with the money and she was very good with finances. She and Colin made a perfect match. It was so cute how she kept all those lists!

The witty, playful dialogue was a joy to read and I found myself laughing out loud several times. The characters were a joy also, the two leads were sweet and adorably flawed and the secondary characters were also surprisingly well rounded. The family members as well as Colin's servant enriched the story with thier little nuances. The plot didn't get tired or boring as some often do. I really recomend this book!!

Castles is the very first Julie Garwood book that I read and I must say it is the reason why I got hooked with this author! It amazes me how well she describes the details on what's happening, where the characters are. It makes you feel transported to the date and time when the story happened. Her writing is simply amazing -- vivid descriptions, one can feel the emotions of the characters.
Although the story's genre is historical romance, it is still very unique in its own way. The twists and highlights of the story are something that I have never encountered in any book that I have read. Definitely a good buy and a keeper!

I loved this book. I mean I loved, loved, LOVED this book! It was so great to get the update on Nathan and Sara and Jade and Caine and Colin, well all I can say is--WHAT A MAN! I loved him and Alesandra and the chemistry between them fizzled up the pages! The only thing missing from this series is possibly a love interest for Catherine!!!

I thought this books was a pleasure to read. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Alesandra and Colin before they got married. I wished Mrs. Garwood would have created a few more exciting incidents before the wedding. I laughed my head off over the part when Colin found something wrong with every one of the men mentioned to marry the princess. Too cute!! I think there were, however a few things that could have been explored to make this book better. The relationship between the General and Princess as well as her position as the only living heir to her country's thrown. I guess that dynasty goes by the wayside then? Maybe it will be resurrected through one of her children in a future book (I hope, that would present all sorts of possiblities for Mrs. Garwood).
As always, I enjoyed this Garwood book. I just wish she would have made it a bit more exciting and suspenseful. She has yet to disappoint me, but this wasn't my top pick of her books. I would suggest Honor's Splendor (my all time favorite), the Wedding, the Gift, or the Prize.
