Publisher Description

A male—and royal—Eliza Doolittle meets a female Professor Higgins.

Having completed his military service, Prince Marco diTalora of San Rimini wants only one thing on his return home: his freedom. He has good reason for avoiding the public eye, and little interest in his father’s plans to immerse him in royal life. In the hours before his brother’s high-profile wedding, he dodges the media hordes for a few hours of respite.

Amanda Hutton is an ace at her job, working with children of the rich and famous to ensure they have the skills to navigate public life. But she’s between clients and under financial stress, so when she’s invited to serve as a royal bridesmaid in beautiful San Rimini, she views the trip as an essential escape.

Amanda soon finds herself hunting down Prince Marco and dragging him out of a casino’s private gaming room. When she gets him to the church on time, she figures her interaction with the rebellious—and flirtatious—prince is over. Then King Eduardo offers her the solution to her financial woes in the form of a job…and it’s not a child he wants her to tutor, it’s Prince Marco.

It’s an offer she can’t refuse. Then again, Marco might have something to teach Amanda.

• The Prince’s Tutor

Unexpected, Nut Delightful

I really liked the story of Amanda and Marco. They took a little while to get where they wanted, but they did so in an effort to better each other. Of course, there were a few moments where fear was a hindrance, but eventually they were each able to overcome that for each other. I also liked that Amanda was a few years older than Marco. I don’t see it as often as I’d like - it’s always the other way around. But here, we have Amanda being the stable and responsible one that guided (not mothered) Marco into accepting who he was and in gaining confidence in his abilities.

I really liked Amanda and Prince Marco’s story

The Prince’s Tutor
Nicole Burnham

In this latest entry into Nicole Burnham’s San Rimini series, Amanda Hutton is attending the wedding of her best friend to the Crown Prince of San Rimini. The king decides to hire her, the daughter of an American diplomat, to guide Prince Marco in how to successfully maneuver life in the public eye. Somehow, due to Circumstances, Marco has never been comfortable as a Royal, and until now has lived what appears to be a carefree, reckless existence, not wanting responsibility, just fun. Since Amanda teaches children of diplomats how to comport and protect themselves, the King decides she would be the perfect tutor for his youngest son.

I really liked both Marco and Amanda. Both have issues which have made them who they are, and they quickly grow to like and respect each other. We watch Marco and Amanda’s deepening friendship and growth as adults, as they quickly grow to respect and simply like each other. Then Nicole throws in the growing attraction between Amanda and Marco, and you have a fun story.

My only issue with this book is that the timeline was too short for the plot to work well for me. I can see the instant attraction, and even the almost instantaneous building of a friendship, but one of my first thoughts when finishing the book was that to build such a solid relationship it takes more time. As a complaint, this was a minor one, but took a half a star away from my rating. I don’t like finishing a book analyzing what I didn’t like about it. Therefore, I rate this 4.5 out of 5 stars.
