    1. I wonder why I keep reading these books? It must be a form of OCD syndrome, I can give no other explanation.Heroine? Weak at best, stupid at worse.Hero? Arrogant, couldn't see what was in front of his face.Dialoque? The same argument in different words through-out the story. They couldn't decide which one wants the divorce and which wanted the marriage. Blahhh.

    2. Absolutely wonderful heart wrenching emotional readClaudio-Therese both are married for past 3 years,it was marriage of convenience and Therese knows exactly why Claudio choose her and she even underwent test of fertility to ensure that she will be able to provide heirs to kingdom but after marriage Claudio asks to wait before starting and Therese agrees Therese is in love with Claudio and has now found out she has Endometriosis and she has only chance of getting pregnant and that is IVF she is [...]

    3. Everyone knows how much I love my heroines and how I hate jerk heroes and how I never see any fault in my heroines seeking divorce right? So when I want to slap this one real hard you'd agree with me that there is probably a reason? Yes?Girl, if you are going to ask for a divorce please for the love of god explain first then tell him you want out. If you just slap him with a demand of divorce when your stupid husband thinks you're content with the marriage till that point, he no longer cares abo [...]

    4. I really really love this book. The heroine and hero are married in a convenient marriage. Really convenient marriage. She had to go through tons of tests when he was going to pick her as his wife to make sure that they were physically compatible and able to bear children together. This isn't a sex test, it's a how likely is it that we'll make heirs test.The heroine loves the hero, the hero cares for the heroine. So the heroine has endometriosis which is getting worse for her. She's one of the r [...]

    5. In my opinion, this was the best of the Scorsolini series. The book deals with the difficulty some women face in not being able to conceive and have children. I loved the heroine, Therese, and her selfless way of being willing to walk away from her marriage and make the ultimate sacrifice for the man she loves. LM did a great job in tackling the issue of endometriosis and how it impacts people's lives. The hero grows leaps and bounds in showing his emotions and focusing on the commitment to his [...]

    6. August 18, 2012A 3.5 rating. I didn't like it much in the beginning, but it gets better.Reread and edited on July 22, 2016I don't know why I didn't appreciate the pure awesomeness of this book before. I mean, wow. Maybe it was because I wasn't a big fan of married couple romances. Then Jenny came and changed my mind about them. Now they provide the best sort of angst. Seriously, what was wrong with me. So I decided to reread this book after I read the brother, Tom, and his wife, Maggie's story. [...]

    7. Good angst-filled story. The heroine was raised by cold, calculating diplomats who trained her to be the wife of a powerful man (for their own gain). When she landed the role of princess of the man next in line to a small Sicilian kingdom, she didn't do it for the reasons her parents and her husband expected. She was in love. Still she played her role flawlessly and believed she meant little to the hero aside from her official role and his passion for her in bed. When she finds out she is likely [...]

    8. I really did not like this book and it is mainly due to the most passive aggressive whiny ass h I have read in a long time. Basically her problem is she has endometriosis and is married to a King so infertility is a big problem as they need an heir supposedly. Instead of sitting down like a rational person and telling her husband she is having some physical problems, she spouts off with "We need a divorce" and refuses to say anything for seven chapters even after she felt her issues were so imme [...]

    9. I like a lot of angst in my Harlequins and I certainly cannot deny that this is full of it and had my eyes filling up quite a few times!I thought this book was brilliant and is my all time favourite Harlequin that I will happily read time and time again even though I will remember the plotline. If I could give this more than 5 stars then I would.

    10. Updated:June/2/2015First of all, I have to say I am not a fan of this author. I wanted to give her a try since I have seen some of her books have high ratings, so I picked up this book expecting to be a good one and also because some of my ' friends have liked it. I will be honest, I didn't like the book too much. When I finished the book I gave it 3 stars, because it was almost at the end when things started to get better, but I changed my mind, it deserves 2 stars and I will tell you why.The m [...]

    11. Lots of angst which I love and some intense scenes that brought tears to my eyes. I would give it 5 stars but I found the heroine's constant second guessing of her husband annoying. She was not honest with him and he was just oblivious to his own feelings and even clueless but she was extremely insecure and needy. Other than that the infertility theme is a very sensitive subject and the author handles it with real sensitivity. Emotional and angsty book just how I like them!

    12. I love problems-in-a-marriage plots and this one dishes out the angst without over-the-top bad behavior. Just tunnel vision and not communicating too well. Really liked the heroine's stoicism and the reasons behind it.

    13. Warning: this about suffering, lots of suffering.Some spoilers aheadTherese was chosen as wife by Prince Claudio because she understood duty just like him. She was thoroughly tested to make sure she was up to every task that being a princess and future queen would require. He didn't know that part of the "yes" Therese gave him was that she was in love with him.He's so clueless as husband/man, for him his life is about being a good a Prince. So his marriage is more like business partnership and a [...]

    14. I enjoyed the angst and the overall story, but lost some interest after Therese and Claudio started endlessly discussing their problems for the entire last two chapters. All the while resolving nothing until the very end. Consequently, the tension dropped dramatically as did the pacing.Poor Therese garnered my sympathy - she felt so unloved! - yet also had me mentally shaking my head at her refusal to seek medical treatments which could solve her endometriosis/low fertility. (view spoiler)[She w [...]

    15. Therese knows that she was chosen as the wife of Principe Claudio Scorsolini because of her suitability to marry a crown prince. She agreed to the arranged marriage because she loves him, and so far they have been happy. The time has come for her to conceive an heir, but she discovers that she has endemetriosis and is infertile. How can she stay married to the crown prince if she cannot provide him with children?This is the third book of the Scorsolini Princes (or Royal Brides) series, and is th [...]

    16. Crown Prince Claudio Scorsolini watched his father marry, cheat on, and divorce the woman who acted as his mother for most of his life in the name of love for his first wife. If love led to such dishonorable behavior, Claudio thought it better to choose a wife by other criteria. Therese grew up with a manipulative diplomat for a father and a scheming social climber for a mother, both of whom drilled a sense of duty and the importance of appearances into her from an early age. Despite never havin [...]

    17. ta-dah! OK another series to archive! I feel proud of myself! ;)This last book was maybe the better of the whole series. Both heroine and hero were normal people (well they were princess and prince so maybe normal is not the right word! LOL) ready to sacrifice themselves, one for the love of a husband and a crown the other for the love of a wife! She was ready to take a step back because she thought that her husband deserved a fertile wife but he didn't let her. Good. Emotional and with a HEA li [...]

    18. Well, this book is weird. The major point of this book is the hero misunderstood and ended up hurting heroine. Good start, to be honest. The exact thing that I'm looking. But the execution is so poor I cringed a lot. Claudio is mean and hard as stone. I didn't even feel his apology, I'm not happy with it. That's why this book is ridiculous. Could be soooo much better.

    19. Unrequited love at it's finest!Princess Therese Scorsolini knows that her husband Claudio, the heir to the throne married her for convenience and that she's the best candidate to produce an heirs. She love him enough to marry him and be a mother to their future children even though he didn't love her. But when she found out about her medical condition that might cause her infertility she knew that she have to leave him. She wanted to protect him and the inhabitants of their country. She knew tha [...]

    21. It would be a 4.5 in all objectivity, given there are some small faults here and there - a brother's name mistaken for the other, some typo, some weird syntax.However for such a short book (120 pages on my reader, 180 officially), it was indeed amazing. In a most compact format, it manages to convey deep emotions at a very key moment for the heroine. She just learnt the reasons behind her physical incomfort and increasing suffering, as well as the most probable consequences. In a word, she requi [...]

    22. Lucy Monroe is an amazing author and this is one of her best works!she essayed a very beautiful journey of a married couple on how they dealt with their trust issues and also infertility was heartwarming to watch how the hero supported the heroine throughout.

    24. The cover was steamy enough, but the story is sweet. Claudio & Therese had been married for almost three years, but then, despite the marriage of convenience and Therese's obligation to provide a heir, Therese broke down.The plot consisted of monologues. Pages and pages of it, I would say and I almost felt asleep and wondering when they would start talking and resolve their conflicts?At certain times, I felt like hollering to both main characters!! because they both kept finger pointing to e [...]

    25. This was headed towards a 3 star read until the last 30 pages were it almost turned into a DNF. There was just too much bickering between Claudio and Therese. Their arguments went around and around in a loop; they kept fighting over the same things and refused to come to an agreement. It got frustrating quick. However, I loved the married already troupe and how Monroe handled Therese's illness. It felt well researched and was presented very thoughtfully. I really like that Monroe incorporates he [...]

    26. Harlequins are a guilty pleasure for me, so don't judge me people. I admit this was a bit implausible considering that he's a prince and she's a wanna-be princess but the emotions they went through are real enough to make this an enjoyable Harlequin tale.

    27. A classic marriage-in-trouble due to failure-to-communicate complete with a just-what-you-were-expecting ending. Actually, I quite liked it - it was reasonably well-paced (always a challenge with this format) and I love a baffled-by-his-feelings hero.

    28. Very nice marriage in peril story. Not usually a favorite trope of mine but it was nicely handled here.
