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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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 all of Miss Garwood's books, and this was not one of her best, although the worst had to be "The Gift" and running a close second for worst was the forgettable Claybourne series(I still haven't figured out how this series merited being a series,since it was so bad). But, since I am a fan, I honestly believe that any Julie Garwood book is better than no Julie Garwood book at all. I missed her great humor in this book and frankly the characters never seemed to connect. The plot was really non existent. It seems to skip around aimlessly looking for a story. I usually love her heroines and her strong, silent huge(there is something about a big man) heroes. I didn't fall in love with this heroe, as I normally do, and I couldn't really get a feel for the character of the heroine. Julie, in the future, please go back to your highland heroes and heroines. They are the best.I also love your Victorian and Feudal England settings as long you maintain the humor, the classiness of the females and the appeal of the men.

I adore Julie Garwood books normally... Since this was one of the last ones I haven't read, I was certainly trying to enjoy it. The characters were all full of potentials with Lucas's dark past, Taylor's fearful childhood, Hunter's interesting background and friendship with Lucas, and a whole cast of other interesting characters who Lucas and Taylor met along the way of their story. However, it didn't all come together like the other Julie Garwood books.
The story and scenes seemed fragmented and several things were not well explained in the book. The unresolved business with Lucas past still felt unresolved at the end of the book. There were no climax in the story as to how Lucas and Taylor resolved their relationship.
I felt the story had a lot of potential, but never fully explored. I wanted to love Lucas and Taylor, but didn't quite get there. Well, I am just going to have to wait for another Garwood book to match the Prize, Ransom, Secret, Bride... etc.

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.
