Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The opening line of Garwood's ( Saving Grace ) latest novel, "The vultures were gathering in the vestibule," aptly sets the tone for the machinations to follow. These "vultures" (of 1868 vintage) are the greedy relatives of Lady Esther Stapleton awaiting the death of their wealthy kin. Worst of the lot is Esther's son, Malcolm, a devious and demented gentleman who is unaware that his vigil is useless: his mother has already transferred her wealth from England to a Boston bank in the name of her favorite granddaughter, Taylor. To shield Taylor from Malcolm's wrath, Esther arranges for the girl to marry Lucas Ross, a Montana rancher itching to end his visit to England. The couple readily agree to the plan: Lucas needs the money to bring his younger brother to America, and Taylor knows Lucas's protection is the only way she can safeguard her tiny orphaned nieces from Malcolm, whose sexual appetite runs to the very young. The marriage is to be annulled as soon as they reach the States, but love has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans. Garwood pads her story with pages of intricate detail (bathing, shopping, decor, traveling, etc.) that ultimately slow the pace to a crawl. Readers can enjoy this book for the humor, the sweetness and the sensuality.

From Library Journal

Compelled to action by the death of her adored grandmother, unconventional Lady Taylor Stapleton agrees to marry Lucas Ross, a man she has never met, and accompany him to America temporarily, all in an effort to save her two young nieces from their greedy and lecherous uncle. But all does not go as planned, and when the girls are kidnapped, Taylor and Lucas are forced to continue their matrimonial charade. Despite the thread of child abuse, sexual and otherwise, woven throughout the story, Garwood's latest offering (following Saving Grace, Pocket Bks., 1993) is light and funny, featuring lively dialog, swift-moving action, and a wonderfully outspoken heroine. Garwood readers might also enjoy books by Amanda Quick and Judith McNaught.

i have been a fan of julie garwood since i haphazardly picked up "the bride" and fell in love with her optimistic and romantic writting. This is one of my favorite book by mrs. garwood.
This story of an heriess, taylor, hell bent on saving her two nieces in america and Lucas, a rugged man from the american frontier just as hell bent on saving taylor. Their marriage was one of convience to help taylor gain access to her inheirtance and get her to america but the love that developes between the two characters is heartwarming.
I love garwood's heroes as the reluctantly chivalrous men trying their damnest not to be drawn to garwood's heriones. I love taylor's spunk and determination. Though she is naively innocent she can wield a gun with the best of them. Little oddities like that are what always make garwood's work so much fun to read.
i definitely enjoyed this book. i couldn't stop reading it which is always a good sign in my opinion. try it out and be ready to be a fan:)

I am an avid reader of Garwood and i really, truly believe this is one of her best. No matter how other people rates it, Prince Charming is a great read. It has the tenderness and wit of Julie Garwood at her finest. Through this novel, she managed to draw up the ideal man living up to the very character of a true prince charming. Lucas Ross will undoubtedly steal your heart along with exploits of the heroine, Taylor Stapleton.
The plot is wonderfully told with an excellent progression of events. The best thing that i like about this book is that it has a wonderful mix of humor and sensuality. Trust me, you'll read this one again and again.

I've read this book before, many times in fact, and I absolutlly adore it. I love all of Julie Garwood's books, and this is one of my favorites. She is my favorite writter, and all her books are fantastic. So I thought it would be nice to listen to the tape while I worked out or wanted to listen to something without having the TV on. One word sums the audio up, awful. The person who read the book did a nice job of the voices and all, but I was extremlly dissapointed at how many details the editors took out. If you think that you want to listen to this tape, DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT. The book is a million times better. If you absolutly have to listen to the book on tape, I suggest you try to find an unabriged copy.
If you liked the book, I would recomend all of Ms. Garwoods books, Whitney, My Love by Judith McNaught, and anything by Amanda Quick.
Let me stress again that the book is ten million times better then the audio.
Happy Readings :)

"Prince Charming" is one of the books from Julie Garwood that seem to get lost in the tides of the others, such as "For the Roses." This is the story of Taylor, a young woman who must marry to protect her fortune from a demented uncle. She also must protect her sister's children from becoming victims of the uncle, as well. In order to accomplish this task, her grandmother weds her to Lucas Ross. Ross is an American, desparate to return to America after obtaining his youngest brother from an English bording school. He agrees to marry Taylor for the money to get his brother home.
Along the way, the story picks up many different characters, and has an added bonus of a side romance story. Overall, I found this book a delight to read. The love between Taylor and Ross is believable, and makes for one great story. I highly recommend PRINCE CHARMING.

While this book started off fast paced, and exciting it took a big nose dive about three fourths of the way to the end. Lucas and Taylor are very memoriable characters but the ending was so anticlimatic. On the back cover it says that lucas marries Taylor to help get his brother home but that was never really fleshed out in the book. But who cares right? we want to know about them falling in love. Sure we do. But we also want the story to flow and adhere to the way the characters are presented to us. The book gave me no real reason for a self proclaimed eternal bachleor to give up his single life to help some dame that was jilted at the alter. I got to the end of the book and was like, "are you kidding me? this cant be the end."

have found that recently with come the Spring and this, garwood is spending alot of time on secondary love stories which is nice to start with but gets slightly annoying after a time. give tham their own books. Would have liked to learn more about hunter, and the man who seduced Victoria. However, i enjoyed this alot. I loved the way that as Taylor went from place to place she collected more and more family. Lucas was the typical garwood male, trying to protect his woman even when she doesn't neccesarily need it. Would have liked to have met his brothers though. the book was alot longer than usual, so kept thinking they'd soon be in Redemption, and we could meet his family, but it never happenned.

Julie Garwood is the queen of romance. Her stories are filled with adventure and excitement. Prince Charming is definitely no exception. The women in her stories are independent and strong, unlike other romance authors. The character in this story, Taylor, is one of my favorites. The chemistry between Taylor and Lucas is electrifying. This is one of her best novels. From cover to cover you will be enthralled. I found myself spontaneously laughing out load and wanting to crying at the sad parts. You don't find many authors who can evoke that much emotion in their writing. If you are interested in reading a book by Julie Garwood. This book is definitely a must.
