4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Times Review April 19 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Suzanne Brockmann picks up the Royally Wed cross-line series and sets the stage for an explosion of passion between a widowed computer tycoon and the UNDERCOVER PRINCESS (4) trying to scrape up information about his absent business partner, who may be her long-lost brother. The complex psychological plot occasionally overwhelms the love story, however, Ms. Brockmanns compelling writing holds readers in absolute thrall.

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny, heart-warming tale of an undercover princess. Sept. 20 2001
By "virgie" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Princess Katherine seems to have the magic touch for healing Trey's dysfunctional family. Forget the premise of looking for the missing crown prince--it's pretty unconvincing anyway. Instead, focus on this wonderful tale of how one woman can make a difference! Truly a keeper!
Read the Royally Wed series of Wynborough in order: Royal Baby on the Way, Undercover Princess, The Princess's White Knight, The Pregnant Princess, & Man Mercenary Monarch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story involving kids. Dec 31 1999
By Kate McMurry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Twenty-five-year-old Princess Katherine Wyndham comes from 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 identity.

Katherine's brother, the heir to the throne, was kidnapped as an infant, and her family recently has had leads in America as to several possibilities for 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 for days to get an appointment with the reclusive Trey, then suddenly when she calls his office, his secretary gives her an appointment for an interview that very day at Trey's home. Katherine grabs at this unexpected opportunity and rushes over to Trey's house, which appears more like a small castle than a home, with Trey's office located in a turret.

Katherine discovers that the reason she has finally been invited in so readily is that Trey desperately needs a nanny, and the secretary assumed that Katherine was applying for the job. Katherine does not want to deceive Trey as to her purpose for 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 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 job.

This book has a wonderful hero and fantastic heroine! The passion between them is powerful, and their emotional connection is deep and very moving.

What was particularly enjoyable for 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 quite 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, too.

Update March 30, 2013: I just reread this book in a Kindle edition. It is well formatted and edited.

There 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 first read of this book. That is the fact that the heroine is able to get away with giving a 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 U.S. Such identification would have immediately blown her "undercover operation," and it has been required by employers for decades in this country, not just post-9/11. 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 requirements to just pretend this legal reality doesn't exist rather than motivating Trey for carelessly overlooking it.

A more likely downside to this story for many readers than the "papers, please" technicality is the fact that the mystery about the missing prince, which is the premise for the "cute meet" of the heroine and hero, is not resolved in this book. This book was originally released by Harlequin 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 Harlequin authors. Presumably the mystery about the prince is not fully resolved until the last book of this series. This is the only book of that series I myself have read.

Below is a complete list of the books in the "Royally Wed" series. So far, only a few of them, including this book, have been re-released as Kindle editions, and in those cases the links provided are to used, paperback books. Note that Book 11 isn't available as a used book on Amazon at this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read April 9 2000
By A. B. Slater - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A friend loaned me Undercover Princess, and I was pretty skeptical about it. The premise seemed farfetched and laughable. I managed to suspend my disbelief and get into the story involving a boy who thinks he's a dog, his sister who is a little too defiant, their charming executive father, and the nanny who is really a princess. The writing was snappy and clever, and the characters were endearing. I actually went out and bought the other books in the series and this one is by far the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Keeps you reading and wishing you were there! Nov. 20 1999
By Anne Hawke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book may involve royalty, but it also involves everyday matters that many are familiar with. It just reaches to the heart of the reader and allows you to see into the minds and hearts of the characters. A dysfunctional family doesn't stand a chance against a woman's love and determination to really get them on the right track. From the beginning to the end you just have to chuckle and even want to cry a little over Kathrine's adventures into taming Trey, Stacie, and Doggie. It's a great read. You'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only Royally Wed book worth reading May 10 2000
By pontmarie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sure, the storyline is a stretch. Princess Katherine poses as nanny Kathy Wynd to discover the whereabouts of her missing brother, the Crown Prince of Wynborough.
She slowly falls in love with her employer and his children, and since this is a series, the issue of the missing brother is not resolved. It doesn't matter, I read the later books and was not impressed, but Suzanne manages to make an implausible plot come alive.
