      I'm a little obsessed with this series and this author right now. Oh, I guess this is the beginning of a new series from her. All the books are about women and men either royal or marrying a royal. There is a similar feel to each book, but I just can't seem to help myself. I'm a sucker for these kinds of books. This is an easy reading, take me away, happily ever ending kind of book. Christian fiction. Clean.

      I enjoyed most of this book it was a sweet read I liked both hero and herion they where great characters.Malachi and Jessabelle story felt finished but the other Characters that got there POV's it didn't feel finish. That's the thing about some POV's it just makes me confuse about the book and it sometimes doesn't belong in the story I really didn't think this book needed other POV's. I just wanted to skip those parts because the book was good just having Malachi and Jessabelle's part only. The [...]

      I guess I will be in the minority with my review of this book.I liked the concept, often finding stories where couple are put together against their will to be interesting. I also enjoy stories about royalty. If you like those storylines this book might interest you. I was interested enough to finish it, but I'm not sure that I will read more by this author unless I'm not able to find something from my to-read list.I appreciate the hard work and effort authors put into their writing. I write and [...]

      Carol Moncado's first book was so good that I decided I wanted to add her to my list of authors whose books I will always read. That decision has not changed.This one, Hand Me Down Princess, begins a new series and it was wonderful! Prince Malachi must marry a woman he has never spoken to, not ever seen, all because of a promise his father, the king, made to this woman's father many years ago. During this book, revelations about their families threaten to destroy their lives, intrigue abounds an [...]

      I stumbled upon this book while I was browsing . I read the preview, which had 4 whole chapters, and I loved the awkward relationship from Jessabelle and Malachi! May I say Jessabelle is a beautiful name This is an amazing book that kept me well into the early morning hours.If you have read Rachel Hauck's Royal Wedding series, you will adore this book!For those who have read the second book in this series,, is it worth the read?

      This wasn't romanceTo many people and side stories.I will say this just once, when your husband cheats on you, shame on you for staying. He doesn't love you, respect you and sure doesn't honour you. I would of been more happy if he would of stopped cheating on his own, knowing what he was doing was wrong. But nope, his wife us raoed and oh now he needs to be the husband. Please just stop the stupid.I would of respected the queen if she left him instead of being the sad pathetic doormat, but nope [...]

      Carol is the queen of writing "princess" romance. I love her books and this book was one of the best. I loved the story of Malachi and Jessabelle. The fact that neither of them wanted to be married, but it was an arranged marriage, and it's a contemporary romance gave it a nice twist. Carol kept the plot moving and the reader guessing. I loved how she worked out the issues and brought the book to a wonderful conclusion. The ending was perfect. Plus, there is a WONDERFUL preview of Queen Christin [...]

      Wonderful story of love and faith overcoming difficult circumstancesMany little girls dream of growing up and marrying a prince but those dreams don't typically include an arranged marriage to a man who they have never seen until they are standing together at the altar. Such is the situation Jessabelle faces. Her prince Prince Malachi really is a Prince Charming and sets out to try and make the marriage work but there are many obstacles to overcome for both Jessabelle and Malachi that will requi [...]

      I enjoyed the premise of this book. I thought the drama that unfolded was a little much. (view spoiler)[She being adopted and then finding out she is the King & his old mistresses daughter - and then finding out that he is the son of his mother and her rapist while she was drugged, and they are married - half-siblings not by blood.(hide spoiler)]Anyway, not one I will read again, one of their preaching moments (there were a few) left an awful taste in my mouth - "Remember, the Prince of Peac [...]

    12. Courtney on said:

      Amazing, utterly amazing. I was very skeptical when I first started this novel, I didn't know how it was going to go from the opening chapters; however, the deeper and deeper I read into the book the more I became hooked. The story line was very different and there was twists at every turn. I understand that some people with look at the summary for this novel and see a "typical" princess novel, but it goes so much more deeper than anyone can even imagine. I have learned to not judge a book by it [...]

    13. Josephine on said:

      Imaginative and funThis was a different kind of story for me. There are so many details to think of in making up another kind kingdom with history and the way it operates. It was fun to read. On the other hand, I didn't get why the king gave his son bad advice in the first place. Was there a reasonable motive for that? I never got it. And then I was irritated by the princess. The prince gave and gave and gave, the perfect example of love, but she gave nothing back. Nothing for a long time. I did [...]

    14. Rachel on said:

      Jessabelle and Prince Malachi have a very different start to their marriage. I loved how he started off deciding he'd make the best of it and that he was a very multifaceted person. Jessabelle frustrated me at first because I really didn't feel like she was trying and I couldn't understand why she was acting how she did. As you continue reading, you get more of her back story and it makes a bit more sense. I loved watching their growth together. Now I just need to find out what happens with Lizb [...]

    15. Mary on said:

      READ ITI wasn't sure at first about this story. Prince Malachi being forced to marry Jessabelle and vice versa. The story seemed kind of blah. What can I say, Jessabelle was boring and pitiful. I am so glad I continued reading. Malachi's determination to prove to Jessabelle that he will keep the new vows he made and her learning to be a "princess" was heartwarming. But it was all the twists and turns that happen later that makes this a great story.

    16. Eileen Carter on said:

      ExcellentThis story is well written with lots of twists and turns to keep you turning pages. An arranged marriage in this day and age, unheard of unless you are a Prince. Never to have met your soon to be wife is a shocking thing. But imagine if you are the bride that knew nothing of the agreement till a few months before the wedding.This book was fascinating and definitely worth the read.

    17. Kathy on said:

      Royal marriages and royal secrets. Only a few weeks ago Jessabelle Keller was an ordinary citizen. Today she is marrying a prince. Her father never told her about the arranged marriage her parents had made with King Antonio of Mevendia to his son, or rather one of his sons. Crown Prince William had declined, so she was past on to the second son, Prince Malachi. She wished this was all just a bad dream and she would wake up in her own bed back home.

    18. Emily Biernacki on said:

      This is probably my favorite book from Carol. I absolutely adore all of her books, and the newest (no matter what book is currently the newest) always ranks as a favorite for a while, but I always come back to this one. Carol is amazing! I love Jessabelle and Malachi. They were real people to me, and it brings forth to mind how love is not just an emotion it is a choice.

    19. Treasa on said:

      captivatingMarriage to a Prince? Isn't that what every girl dreams of? Not Jessabelle. A king's promise to his friend has Jessabelle doing just that after her father arranges a marriage between her and Prince Malachi, the second prince as the crown prince refused to marry her. The author masterfully weaves mystery and romance to captivate the reader until the very end.

    20. Martha on said:

      At the very beginning of this book, I was trying to decide if this one was my favorite. I read these all out of order and I recommend you do not do that! I loved how the past was dealt with in this story, and how a marriage that should have been loveless was worked through in a lovely way, without passionate details!

    21. C.M. on said:

      Sweet story with some interesing twists. It just moved a bit slow for me.

    22. Chris on said:

      It seemed like it was geared a bit toward a YA audience, although I don't get that from the description or other reviews. And there were a lot of typos.

    23. Beena Thomas on said:

      WonderfulAfter Charlie & Addie story, this one's my second favorite. I loved it. Carol Moncado is just too good. My so glad I choose to read her books!!!

    24. Lynda Knapp on said:

      Very enjoyable!I do recommend this book. There was a twist in this that I wasn't quite expecting. I would read this again just as I would do for other books by Carol Moncado.

    25. Kelly on said:

      Only made it 70 pages in before DNF. This book was so boring and life is too short to read boring books.

      "Nothing like being a hand-me-down Princess. The words mocked Jessabelle over and over as she stared at her reflection in the mirror. Hand-me-down.Passed over. Rejected. Unwanted. In less than an hour she would become Princess Jessabelle of Mevendia, wife of Prince Malachi, second in lie for the throne. Not because he wanted to marry her, but because Crown Prince William had rejected her. Twice. Prince Malachi only upheld his family's end of the marriage contract because her father had saved Kin [...]

      My Review:The day was set and arranged far before Jessabelle Keller knew about it. Her wedding was prepared and planned without her opinion. And her groom she had never met. On her wedding day she should be a happy joyous bride, but things are never what they seem. Her father only did this to make good on a deal, or so she believed.Prince Malachi Van Renssalaer of Mevendia never had the choice in the matter. He was forced to marry a girl he never met, but the minute he laid eyes on her he wished [...]

      This story tells how Malachi, a prince, is ordered to marry, Jessabelle, the daughter of a friend of the king who saved his life as a teen and made a promise that one of his sons would marry her. They are thrown together by order and yet Malachi swears he will not follow in his father, the kings, footsteps because he wants to be a good husband to his wife. Jessabelle feels that she could never live up to being the kind of princess that the royal family desires. She has some terrible things happe [...]

    30. Becky Dempsey on said:

      "Hand-Me-Down Princess" by Carol Moncado is the first in the Brides of Belles Montagnes Series, but it also includes characters from her Montevaro Monarchy series, so it would be best to read that series first. There is enough told in "Hand-Me-Down Princess" for you to basically know what had happened, but it would be clearer to read them in order.I could relate to Jessabelle's desire to stay out of the spotlight. She was able to stretch her comfort zone through the story and had a less difficul [...]
