    1. This book made me feel warm and fuzzy inside and stuff =)Poor Willow lives in a home with her father, step-mother and her brood. They were all jerks as you can figure and her poor father was worn down. But it was Willow that had to look after all of the brats and take care of everything. Then we have Lord Bannor who sends out one of his men to find him a wife for his own brood of children. He had two wives that gave him children but they died and people tend to drop children off at the castle sa [...]

    2. 4.5 stars. So, I just bought this book from online shop which usually sell many used books. The price is cheap. Just 50000 rupiahs or maybe 4,99 dollars. I decide to read Charming the Prince, first because I really love the blurb, its rare to find character letter for a synopsis. And I'm kinda stuck with UF/PNR books I read lately. So I want to change my usual genre for a little :)I read this for 4 hours.And of course that a good sign! If I can't stop read it, that's mean the story is good. And [...]

    3. This was a buddy read with the always fantastic Unapologetic Romance Readers Group.24/8 - The historical inaccuracies just killed this for me. Often I don't mind if the characters don't exactly speak the way they should for the era the book is set, or if there is the odd out of a place piece of weaponry or mode of transport, but this book had so many things wrong I was constantly drawn out of the story (not that I was all that 'engrossed' anyway).At no point did I find myself feeling any sympath [...]

    4. DNF at 38%/ page 133What I liked:Well. I suppose I did like the idea of it. Willow is basically Cinderella: after her father remarried, his new wife degraded her to nursery maid for her six children from a previous marriage and all the ones that result from the new marriage. When a man arrives at their castle to tell her that Sir Bannor The Bold wants her as his wife, she immediately jumps at the chance to get away from her family and agrees to the marriage. Once she gets there though, she reali [...]

    5. I love books that can make me laugh and I love books that can make me cry. This one did both! It has kind of a Cinderella beginning. A widow with a little girl marries and when she shows up, she has not only 2 wicked step-siblings for the little girl, but a whole carriage full of them. The father doesn't die and leave her alone with this dastardly crowd, he just doesn't defend her against them when they turn her into their slave. Thirteen years later she agrees to marry a man she's never seen to [...]

    6. Barron has eleventy bajillion children who are wrecking havoc on his peace. So he tells his manslave to fetch him a woman who can mother his children without ~inflaming his boner. TOO BAD HE GETS WILLOW!! SHE'S A STRAIGHT-UP HOTTIE!!!1. SO CREEPED OUT BY THE SECONDARY ROMANCE OFTHE TWO 13-YEAR OLD CHILDREN??? I DON'T CARE ABOUT HISTORICAL ACCURACY WHEN THEY'RE PREPUBESCENT, SORRY.2. I was completely disappointed by the handling of the no-babies plotline. IS IT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR A HEROINE WHO I [...]

    7. I loved Teresa Medeiros and it pains me to say what I am going to say about one of her books: I read 40% and have to throw in the towel 6 months later. I know I will never pick this up again. There isn’t enough time for nonsense like this. I didn’t read enough for me to leave a rating, but if I had to it would have been 1 star. What a load of you know what. This entire series is poorly done. Or I am just not much for fairy tales as romance.

    8. Lord Bannor the Bold is feared throughout the lands, even a whisper of his name has others quivering in their boots, his virility is legendary, his talent with the sword is unmatched, but his children terrify the living daylights out of him. With their knack for conjuring up trouble, Bannor needs a wife with a gentle hand who will treat them as her own and teach them the manners they need desperately. His once condition, make sure she is homely, for Bannor never wants to be tempted to have child [...]

    9. Sons are a heritage from the Lordchildren a reward from Him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth.Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

    10. OMG! I liked this!At first when I started liking it I felt like I was betraying myself because I,by default ,HATE heroes in HR that have bastards.This one DID NOT HAVE THEM! He just took what ever kids because he was a bastard. Cute,right?I know I'm weird because of all this but there is just something that puts me of when it comes to heroes that abhor any kind of prevention.The book was really cute and lovable.The only thing I DID mind was when the nanny told the heroine it is not a must do for [...]

    12. I don't now why I picked this book up. After all, I know I don't like totally anachronistic books - I can take feisty heroines and PC heroes that are ahead of their time (people like that existed even if they weren't the majority) - but when the books go all out trying to portray a modern story in past times, they really lose me. The book is not getting a worse rating because I chuckled at times. The purple prose using "medieval" terms was hysterical - I've never heard a vagina being referred as [...]

    13. I absolutely loved It! It had me laughing and it was heartwarming. The banter with all the children as well as the relationship and spunk between Bannor and his faithful manservant Hollis make the book that much more enjoyable.

    14. Sir Bannor the Bold, a rough-hewn warrior who battled the French dauntlessly for 14 years. But Bannor's secret is that he is truly terrified of his 12 (count 'em, 12) motherless children who have run wild for years, tormenting all of the residents of his keep. At his wit's end (and barricaded in a tower), the exhausted lord dispatches his man to find a new wife to manage his brood, hopefully without adding to it!!! Bannor seeks a wife who is everything his children are not--quiet, biddable, and [...]

    15. Squee book is full of squee. I had so much fun reading this book. It was hilarious and filled with bad parenting and was just so so wonderful. It was a nice change of pace from the other books I've been reading. This is definitely one I will read again when I want to be put in a good mood.

    16. This was PRECISELY the kind of fluffiness that I was searching for!!! I laughed! I "dawwwwwww"ed! I teared up!!!! YES YES YES YES YES!!!!

    17. As a historical novel this book was somewhat disappointing, though as a cinderella retelling it wasn't terrible. I quickly realized the only way for me to read it was to ignore the dates and larger historical details attempted, and instead read it more like a fantasy with medieval inspired setting. While there were historical facts and settings briefly mentioned, the majority of the book wasn't about those, but about the day to day relationship and journey of the two characters. The problem that [...]

    18. This wasn't the funniest historical romance I've read, or the most romantic, or even the sexiest. But it was hopelessly sweet and full of truly loveable characters. That's where it got me.It's a little lame sometimes with the somewhat flowery language but pretty much all historical romances are at least a little bit lame in some regard. The sexy scenes are pretty laughable as well but again, they usually are. It's an adorable story. It really was like a fairytale, with some sex tossed in. It's a [...]

    19. NOT Disney's Cinderella.The beginning made ME dislike children tood evil step-mothersd weak fathers.And it made me want to hug Lady Willow.Bannor is not your usual Prince Charming. His sense of loyalty and humor and his CARING really drew me to him.Once again, Teresa Medeiros has taken a story that we thought we knew, and tweaked it enough to make it fresh. And hot.I'd read this againA: I did just read this againI loved the seige with the childrend LOVED how he acquires children right and left

    20. Sir Bannor the Bold, a rough-hewn warrior who battled the French dauntlessly for 14 years. But Bannor's secret is that he is truly terrified of his 12 (count 'em, 12) motherless children who have run wild for years, tormenting all of the residents of his keep.

    21. Coitadinha!Essa Cinderela entrou pelo ralo!O Príncipe é Príncipe, mas o Príncipe tem a "força"!Só olhar nos olhos das mulheres e elas já embucham!!! rsrsrsrsrSério, o cara tem 12 filhos e precisa urgente de uma mãe para seus filhos. O principal quesito? Que não desperte nenhum desejo de compartilhar a cama com sua esposa, e consequentemente, ter mais filhos!

    22. Lord Bannor decides he needs to remarry, so that his new wife can look after his unruly children. His steward selects Willow for him, marrying her in Bannor's stead. Willow was forced to raise all her step siblings when her father remarried. Abused and neglected, she jumps at the chance to escape her father's keep, but Bannor is dismayed when he sees how attractive she is, not wanting to sire anymore children. He decides to drive her away but--of course--slowly falls in love with her instead.Thi [...]

    23. Lord Bannor the Bold has valiantly fought in France for the King, but doesn't know what to do with his dozen unruly children when he goes home. Deciding they need a mother, he sends his steward off to find him a bride. But he has one condition. The bride cannot be beautiful and tempt him into her bed just to end up with more babies. Willow had raised 10 step-siblings for the last 14 years. When Bannor's steward came looking for his Lord's bride, she volunteered for the job. She gets a surprise w [...]

    24. RESEÑA COMPLETA ➜ goo/ipdlyeLord Bannor es un formidable guerrero que ha aterrorizado a miles de soldados franceses con la sola mención de su nombre. Él ha sobrevivo torturaras inimaginables que hicieran roto a cualquier humano normal, mientras que Bannor se echaba la siesta plácidamente o mataba a su fustigador con el mismo látigo que le corto la piel. Su tenacidad en la guerra le ha valido incontables reconocimientos por parte de rey, incluyendo el castillo de Elsinore donde su leyenda [...]

    25. More reviews available at my blog, Beauty and the Bookworm.Charming the Prince was the main buddy read for August in the Unapologetic Romance Readers group on . (We also have a bodice ripper for this month, which I'm planning on reading as well.) It's supposed to be a historical romance Cinderella retelling, though honestly the "historical" and "Cinderella retelling" parts are painted in with only the broadest strokes. The main plot follows Branson, the bastard-born lord of some lands in the fou [...]

    26. A Cinderella story set in medieval times and with a warlord for prince.Willow hopes for a mother and gets a tyrant who forces her to practically raise children a few years younger than her, while alienating her from her beloved, but timid father. A few years later and through a lucky chance she finds herself the bride of someone resembling her beloved imaginary prince who apparently only wants her to raise his numerous children. Bannor has only known war and has no idea how to interact with his [...]

    27. When I started reading this book, I felt that I would not like it, despite the extremely good ratings from many of my friends: I am usually not very keen on Middle Age romances, the hero seemed so bad and unlovable that I wondered if he could be redeemed and if I would like him sometime, etc.First the overall joyful tone of the book enticed me, the little pinches of humor felt right. The characters were not unidimensional but evolve a lot in the story - luckily because the heroine behaves at som [...]

    28. Charming the Prince is a retelling of the Cinderella story. Only instead of two evil stepsisters she has a whole brood of small children she's forced to become a nursemaid to. And then turns out her prince charming has a brood of his own for the heroine to take care of as well. I thought as a whole that Charming the Prince was kind of cute. It wasn't particularly engrossing to me, and I thought how the 'Prince' handled parenthood at the beginning to be a little mean. But I only expected it to be [...]
