Veronica St. John is facing the challenge of a lifetime. The media consultant has two days to teach a rugged Navy SEAL to impersonate a European prince who has been targeted by terrorists. It's a tough assignment, but Veronica is sure she's up to the task — until she actually meets Joe.

Despite his physical resemblance to the handsome prince, Lieutenant Joe Catalanofto is nothing like the stuffy aristocrat. Everything about the combat-hardened Navy SEAL — from the arrogant gleam in his eyes and streetwise attitude to the New York accent — says regular guy, not royalty. One conversation and Veronica knows nothing could turn this military man into nobility. Joe, on the other hand, is confident he's got what it takes to complete his duty.

But neither of them expects their assignment to include falling in love . . .

Buyer beware! While the product name has both Prince Joe and Forever Blue listed as contents, this product is a solo version of Prince Joe. As I never would have spent this amount on Prince Joe alone, I feel rather cheated.

I really like action, military and series books. This book covers all three areas quite well. Good start to the TDD series. I started this series because the Troubleshooter series is so entertaining. It was interesting enough to purchase the rest of the series. JoeCat is a Navy Seal who has built his career through determination and will power. He was not born with a silver spoon. Veronica also has a great deal of determination and will power, but was born with a silver spoon. Government agencies have to work together, but of course do not communicate very well or actually listen to each other. Easy, fast read.

This was my first Military Romance I've read. I loved it! It is about Joe who is a SEAL and Veronica who is a media consultant. The premise of the book is that Joe looks like a Prince from a foreign country and this prince is soon going to visit the US. Veronica is hired to make Joe act and look and virtually become this prince. He must take the Prince's place at functions because of assasination attempts. The characters were great! I loved the writing and the story had a good amount of action and a great love story interwoven throughout the book. You can see how Veronica gets frustrated over Joe and his insistance that he can pull off this plan, but how she feels he isn't taking it seriously. You also begin to see them both falling in love with each other despite the fact that neither one of them wants to. Good plot and great writing.

This is the most fantastic series I think I've read. There are 11 books in this series and I love all of them. I bought most of them and kept them. There are a couple that were hard to find. I really wish she would have written more on this series. I've read the Troubleshooters series and it's good, but this is my favorite!

Suzanne Brockmann's Prince Joe was a fun read. As my son can attest, it had me laughing out loud at several points. The Navy SEAL who is a dead ringer for the crown prince of a tiny foreign country bit seemed a bit eighties television-ish, but I was okay with that. I wasn't looking for War and Peace here. I wanted a fun, rather fluffy read, and that's what I got. My only real issue is with the level of miscommunication between the two main characters. I agree that some is realistic, even necessary. However, for a woman who makes a living as a media consultant in the arena of international politics, I really felt that Veronica St.John should have a better understanding of basic communication skills and knowledge of how to read others. In all, though, it was an entertaining way to spend a few hours.

This is the first book that I read by Suzanne Brockmann. I couldn't wait to read to the others! It was WONDERFUL! I have never read anything about SEALs before and found this to be informative about them and one of the best love stories that I have ever ready. Ronnie and Joe are absolutely perfect for each other. Right after I read this one I found the other two and much to my suprise a fourth one came out last week. I haven't got it yet, but believe me, I am working on it.

My god.. This is the first romance novel ive read, and ive already fallen in love with it.. Veronica and Joe make such a good couple!! When it got to the end, she finally admits that she REALLY REALLY loved him, and it was so.. so.. good. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes reading these kinds of novels, you will immediately fall in love with it.. I agree there should be a movie based on this!!

That's what you get when you put an ivy league educated, red-headed with a rough cut Navy SEAL raised on the streets of New York. Lots of action and of course, romance. Besides what woman can resist a man with a trident and dress blues? A fun, fast paced read that grabs your attention from the very start. I breezed thorough this book in twenty-four hours. (Only caught a few minor mistakes, but the author addresses this possibility in her acknowledgement and it¿s nothing serious. One point though - Naval personnel don¿t salute indoors.)

Everyone should have their own SEAL, even if it's only fantasy. But here, Brockman makes that fantasy seem possible if only for a little while.
