Not-So-Perfect Princess by Melissa McClone. Publisher: Harlequin, July 2011
Dutiful Princess Julianna has a secret—she’s actually happiest makeup free, sailing with the sea breeze in her hair. Her attraction to rebel prince Alejandro is instant—but her intended is his brother, the proper but dull Enrique!
For the first time, Julianna’s irresistibly tempted. Before long, she’s spending her nights sailing with gorgeous Alejandro while the rest of the palace believes she’s sleeping. Soon she’ll have to choose—remain the perfect princess, or follow her heart and stop sleepwalking her way through life.
This was a sweet read. Juliana knows what she likes and who she wants, but can she have it all? This romantic story kept me turning the pages as I hoped for a satisfying conclusion. This is another one of McClone’s books that left me with a smile when I was done. A good read for a nice summer day.
