Review: The Marcelli Princess by Susan Mallery

First line: Mia Marcelli was used to sleeping alone so it came as something of a shock to wake up with a strange man in her bed.

From the back cover: A smart, independent woman with a gorgeous four-year-old son, Mia Marcelli lost her one true love. Four years ago, while working undercover for the CIA, she watched Diego, the father of her unborn child, perish before her very eyes - crumbling the world around her. But one morning she awakens to find Diego lying next to her, alive and well with an unbelievable confession: he is really Rafael, Prince of Calandria, and he had been working covertly on the same mission when they met - his death had been staged. Utterly stunned, Mia is wary and delighted - she may have suffered a broken heart, but her breathtakingly handsome lover is back to reignite the passion that existed between them. Little does she know that Rafael has returned to give his newfound son a proper upbringing back in Calandria - even if it means seducing Mia into marriage. But when Rafael finds himself truly falling for this luscious beauty, he must decide between his royal duties and the woman who has claimed his heart.

My thoughts: This is the final story of the Marcelli family and we finally hear Mia's story. We have watched Mia grow up in this series, from being the younger, annoying sister who always wants to be the center of attention to a strong, independent woman. Aleady having her share of heartbreaks, Rafael's betrayal may be her undoing.It is easy to root against him in the beginning and then to slowly root for him at the end. The fact that the entire Marcelli family stands up for their own, but then one by one is able to see differently as things change is heartwarming and shows the true meaning of family love. I really enjoyed reading about the Marcelli clan and am sorry to see the series end.
