Prince Charming – Julie Garwood

Julie Garwood. Prince Charming. (New York: Pocket Books, 1995). 0671870963.

Main Characters: Taylor Stapleton and Lucas Ross.

Description from book:

Only her beloved grandmother, Lady Esther, knew how devastated Taylor Stapleton had been when her fiance eloped with Taylor’s cousin Jane. Now that good lady–one of London’s richest and most formidable matriarchs–lay dying. But first she was going to help Taylor pull off the scam of the season.

To escpae becoming a ward of her unscrupulous uncle, Taylor would wed Lucas Ross, a rugged American rancher. Lady Esther’s money would enable Ross to bring his youngest half-brother home to Montana. Taylor had her own urgent reason to go to America . . . a precious legacy she hadn’t revealed to Ross, for they had agreed to go their separate ways once they reached Boston. But as her handsome new husband spoke of life in Montana, Taylor began planning a new future a new future. To Taylor, the wide-open space of Montana sounded like paradise . . .

My Thoughts:

This is another one of my favorite Julie Garwood books. Taylor Stapleton is quite the character. I love the scene where she gives young Lady Catherine her sapphires in order to make up for the fact that her cousin Jane was mean to Catherine. It is a quite humorous how much Taylor’s marriage to Lucas Ross bothers William Merritt – who is Taylor’s ex-fiance and Ross’s half-brother. The book only gets better when Taylor, Lucas, Victoria, Hunter, Daniel David and the twins finally make it to Montana.
