Publisher's Summary

Prince Alessandro Barrali is known for his wild ways. After he's compelled to stand in for his staid identical twin, all Alessandro wants is to escape the fishbowl of palace life and indulge himself. When he awakens aboard the royal yacht awash in hedonism, yet bored out of his mind, he decides a new quest is in order.
Francesca "Frannie" Lawrence needs capable volunteers at the children's shelter she's opened on the tsunami-devastated South Pacific island of Kilakuru. When Prince Alessandro Barrali appears on her doorstep, she's sure she has a nightmare on her hands. Since the royal family provide the shelter's financial backing, she can't turn him away. Nor can she deny that the children adore him. Can she find a way to protect the children in her care - and the walls around her heart - against a challenge from a wicked prince?

Great Addition

The Wicked Prince: Royal Scandals Book 5 by Nicole Burnham. Prince Alessandro has always been the wild Barrali. He loves adventure and going his own way. He meets Francesca Lawrence when he is impersonating his brother, Crown Prince Vittorio. Once his impersonation duties are complete Alessando returns to his “wild ways”. However, he is dissatisfied with his life and is looking for a new escape. Frannie left a lucrative job to open a shelter on the tsunami ravaged island of Kilakuru. She travels to Sarcaccia to meet with the Queen to request additional funding for the shelter and in is in hopes of recruiting some volunteers. When Prince Alessandro appears at the shelter in the South Pacific, she’s sure he has no idea what he is getting into and is just whiling away his time. As he spends time at the shelter she comes to realize that the children love him and enjoy spending time with him. She is beginning to feel the same but is afraid to trust her heart to the heartbreaker Prince Alessandro. Alessandro feels that his past indiscretions make him an unsuitable partner for Frannie.

Hollis McCarthy has narrated all the books in this series. She again does an excellent job with the accents and characters voices, including the children. She appears to have an affinity for the Barrali family and their accented speech. Ms. McCarthy’s ability to make the come alive, is a great asset to the narration of the book. Her telling of the story has you feeling the emotions that the characters experience. The narration flowed nicely with no stops or stammers. There don’t appear to be any miscues in the reading.

I absolutely cannot wait for more

It's so hard to choose a favorite with this series, but I think this one comes closest. Nicole Burnham writes wonderfully with great storylines. I enjoy "the world" she has created. I cried at the end of this one. I absolutely cannot wait for more.

Hollis McCarthy's voice is perfection while reading these stories. She has made these books a delight to listen to while I'm on longer trips. The story plays out like a movie in my head which makes the monotonous drive less tiring.
