This is a book that I will always go back to. I love the story, I love the characters and the era it is set in (World War II). It is wonderful seeing the change in the character of Aria (the Princess in the title)from a haughty but naive Princess of a distant country whose only previous physical contact is when her ladies-in-waiting dress her, to a sassy, sexual and socially aware woman. Her relationship with JT gets off to the most rocky of starts, but the story will take you through all the ups and downs of their relationship - and there are plenty of those ups and downs! At times you feel as if you could reach in the book and bang their heads together, they are both so stubborn and proud but they get there in the end and the route is full of twists and turns that keep you turning the pages. As I've said, I could read this book again and again (and have done so), it catches the imagination so well and describes the situations so vividly, you can see yourself there with them. Jude Deveraux has done it again with this book; her books are always well-researched and combine what you look for in a romance; good characters, good storylines, good sex and good fun and The Princess doesn't let her down.
