There are so many romantic and wonderful twists in BE MY PRINCE by Julianne MacLean that everyone must read it and hopefully be as delighted with it as I was. Yet the one outstanding statement for me is something I have spoken of and truly believe. On Page 201 at the bottom, our heroine Alexandra says…
“I have lately begun to see that there are certain events in our lives we are not meant to control. We do our best to make the world work the way we want it to, but sometimes God has other plans.”
Indeed he does and if we stay very quiet and listen our prayers will be answered in the manner that is appropriate not necessarily as we want them to.

As a fan of Claude Monet’s I am always moved by how he took the negatives in his life to made them positives. No one liked his paintings, they criticized his innovative style, and what he thought was okay he went with. Life may knock you around but look for the one shining moment in the day and celebrate a Little Victory.
REVIEW from Mary Gramlich "The Reading Reviewer"
BE MY PRINCE by Julianne MacLean
When you are destined to be queen there is not much you will not do to make sure that dream comes true. Lady Alexandra pretends to be just another woman in search of a love match when in fact she is chasing after His Royal Highness, Prince Randolph of Petersbourg. Randolph is about to rule the land once controlled by Alexandra’s family before they were unceremoniously evicted and forced to live in poverty. Having lost everyone she loved Alexandra is determined to have what she is owed. The question becomes what it will take for her family to be restored to the throne.
What Alexandra did not expect is Randolph’s handsome and beguiling brother Nicholas to capture her attention. Alex is trying to stay focused on the prize she has to have but Nicholas is standing in the way and she can’t stop the desire and passion she feels for him. Nicholas tries desperately to give Alexandra the match she seeks but if that means he must give her up, he is not sure he can comply with that request. In this game of lies, deceit, and perhaps betrayal, nothing is as it appears and the truth really is more powerful than the two people standing together in a heated embrace.
Julianne MacLean writes the romance readers crave showing her mastery in the craft of the twisted plot.
