Star princess or not, she’s a perfectly normal, single woman—and prefers to stay that way—until Prince Ché Vedla crashes into her life. When the sexy royal asks for help sowing his wild oats, Ilana is happy to help. But fall for Prince Charming herself? Not a chance! Ché is too stuffy, too arrogant, and too old-fashioned. But the charming Prince Ché has other plans. When he sweeps her off her feet, Ilana sees stars, and the higher he takes her, the more she wants to fly—with him. But can she go along for the ride without worrying about where they might land?...

    This was, for intents and purposes, a contemporary romance involving a hero from another galaxy. Instead of sci-fi romance, this would more accurately be called romantic with science fiction elements, the romance being the main story and the sci-fi incidental to the that. However, that doesn't mean this isn't a very good book. I thoroughly enjoyed the hero and heroine, and felt the relationship, while containing the requisite passion to make it a hot romance, was believable and well-developed. The motivations of both primary characters were clear and both were honest, honorable people. No big misunderstandings, and the tension is provided by the natural situation in which the characters find themselves.There was very little real action in this book, and the "villain" was weak, as was the secondary romance. But the developing relationship between Illana and Che was sweet and compelling, and well worth the time.

    The third book in Susan Grant's Star series. Prince Ché Vedla is advised to marry before the big royal wedding of the crown prince. While his advisor is looking for an appropriate bride, Ché decides to vacation on Earth for a bit. There he contacts, Ilana Hamilton, the sister of the crown prince.I'm sorry but I was really expecting more from the book. It was really slow for me but somewhere after the halfway mark it picked up and started getting good. Most of the story takes place on Earth in California. The pace was a little slow for me but the style of writing was nice. The characters were also likable and there is a little secondary romance included. Overall, I liked it but I didn't love it.

    Review:Eons or slightly less time ago I read the first two books in the series and since I remember really enjoying them (this series has been around for a while already), I thought why not read the next installment even though I don’t recall much from the previous ones. Plus, a good Cinderella/fairy tale story is always worth to lose some hours for.It was in a sense a classical romance with a predictable plot and two stubborn as mules hero and heroine from completely different worlds, who should have accepted that they are ideal for each other already on first meeting and gotten on with it already. The various characters and other little details were, however, what made it an extra charming and sweet reading experience.Like:I liked the final villain and the twist there, I totally didn’t see that coming.The tension that was building between Che and Ilana till it exploded. I also liked that they were so different, but there wasn’t any major conflicts or there wasn’t too much contrasting to showcase how incredibly different they were both in the lives they led and them as individuals. Thus, it wasn’t too hard to believe how they could be attracted to one another and eventually fall in love.It’s always entertaining to watch someone totally out of their element, especially someone aristocratic and privileged. To observe how they fare in an ordinary person’s world usually leads to hilarious situations, which in this book weren’t as in your face and embarrassing as in other books, but the subtle glimpses to Che adapting to earth life were very endearing.Ilana’s “devious” brother.The whole background and world building of this image of the future where the story takes place is elaborate and detailed (especially having read the previous books), yet it doesn’t take over the story and I don’t feel overwhelmed by all the information. This book is focused on the main couple and everything revolves around them and nothing else hogs their quality time.Me not like:The secondary romance came across too detached and out of the blue to me to actually enjoy. Although, I’m happy that the über manly guy with the über adorable name, Muffin, finally found his lady-love.As already mentioned, it had a somewhat simplistic and cliché plotline and was a quick read. But, since the main theme of the book I’m quite fond of, then I didn’t mind the predictability as much.Characters: Ilana – She is independent, self-confident, a career woman, a seemingly strong and self-sufficient woman who has her own soft sports and fears. There wasn’t really any special reason not to like or root for her. I especially liked how she decided to ignore all buts and doubts and just go with what she felt, that was unexpected yet pleasant. Some may see it as too rash and convenient, but I found it incredibly sympathetic and brave.Che – An honorable and responsible prince, who want to enjoy the final free days of his life before having to sacrifice himself at the altar for his people and duty. But, he was all in all a really nice and likable guy despite being born with a silver, or in his case, a diamond spoon in his mouth.Overall:This was a sweet conclusion to the whole series and I recommend it to all. The three books were simple and romantic sci-fi love stories. I don’t usually find myself enjoying sci-fi romance, but I really came to like this series.

    Really loved this one. Ilana is my kind of character, more bold and strong than her mother (who was in The Star King), ambitious enough to be realistic. I really liked Che too, though I didn't expect to initially (much like Ilana). I think I have a thing for kings and princes - there always my favourite characters. I really liked their relationship because it wasn't pure lovey dovey; they were sarcastic and funny and argumentative and passionate. Ilana refrained from becoming too clingy or ridiculous after they hooked up, and there was no instant 'Oh my god, i love you' but an acknowledgment that despite the circumstances of their marriage they weren't necessarily in love yet. I liked the little side story with Muffin and Cooper too though I do wish Grant had made mention of the relationship between Gann and Lara referred to in the previous book. There were things I didn't like about this story, issues I took with some of Grant's world and society creation, but overall I could overlook these in my enjoyment of the story.

    Book 4 in the Star series and though I read this series several years I remember liking the entire series. Good stories. This one, the hero was a prince and looking for a bride when he encounters the heroine who doesn't want to be married. Nice book.

    I really liked this book. I really just enjoyed it. It is the first one that I have read in the Series but I had no problem keeping up. So I guess in other words, it's a good standalone story. I liked both of the main characters, a lot. There was some pretty good word building when it came to the differences of the other outer space worlds. There was a clash of personalities and a clash of cultures but they also had a strong underlining attraction also. Others recognized that attraction long before they did. All that they saw at first was the fact that they hadn't forgotten each other after their first meetings. Ché also saw her as totally unsuitable in everything that he wanted in a woman and Ilana saw him as the enemy of everything that she believed in and some things that she feared. It got really amusing when they often went toe to toe and when Che tries to learn the customs and slang of Earth. There are some good secondary people in the story and an interesting unexpected turn of events towards the end of the book. Che's brother, Klark also plays an important part of the story as well. No cliffhangers, a good Epilogue and a H.E.A. What's not to like about that?

    The Star Princess was an interesting take on contemporary romance and science fiction. The main characters Illana and Che's relationship has a steady development that doesn't feel rushed or impractical. Prince Che comes to Earth to avoid the marriage preparations for his wedding and stays with Illana, learning about Earth and falling in love almost without realizing it. Once he understands his feelings he quickly plans to tell his family and cancel his previous wedding plans, making him one of my favorite hero-types, not one to mess around and not admit his feelings. Overall this book was very interesting and well written. It's only received three stars because, although it was a great read, it seemed unnecessarily long in some spots and, for me personally, was just an average story without some mysterious spark that flies out of some books and makes me fall in love.

    This book was good. I had a hard time really getting into it as it was just so much, almost too much, stuff about the star princess and her life on earth. Very boring, to me anyway, to wade through her days doing normal "human" things. She is afraid of flying and that is why she is putting up such a snit about going to another planet to see her mom and her brother. To me, she was a spoiled princess. There was a good plot in the story and it finally gets interesting about halfway through it. She meets up with Che'Vedla, who is the crown prince of another race on another planet. He has come to earth to rest and have one last fling before having to go back home to make a political match for his country. They have a great time together and then things start to go wrong. Would recommend if you are following this series.

    After starting this book I realized I had read an earlier book in the series. The book is interesting I its take on life from other planets and the cultural commentary. Che and Ilana are main characters the reader can invest in, particularly Che. The secondary characters enhance the storyline and the reader is left guessing the plot surprise until the end, though an astute reader will most likely figure it out. Rey enjoyable book and I recommend it and the series.

    While a fine story, this is definitely he weakest in the series. Other than the humorous "alien lost on earth" aspects, it was too predictable and lacked tension, sexual or otherwise. The small twist at the end was nice, but doesn't redeem the book.Book #4 is better, so I still rate the series highly.

    Star Princess Excellent book. I enjoyed every minute of it. I didn't wasn't it to end. I could totally relate to the alien world and mixing into earth. The book had me believing he possibility of it all.

    I skipped over this freebie in my library several times because I figured it would be painfully bad, but it surprised me. Good story with intrigue, romance, sex, and a good ending, even if I found the heroine a bit unlikeable at times.

    Possibly my favorite of the series. I love that Susan Grant keeps the stories fresh and different between characters that have been introduced previously. Classic romance where the lovers get together, but unique characters keep me reading the series

    Recently set aside Crown Prince Che Vedla is being forced to marry so his family can save face, after the new crown prince stole his fiancee. But Che wants a vacation first. So he heads to Earth to meet up with Ilana Hamilton, sister to the crown prince who intrigued him when he first met her several months earlier. Ilana is a film maker on Earth, afraid of flying (so she doesn't spend much time with her galactic family) and a commitmentphobe. When she meets Che again, they hit it off, but Ilana isn't about to give up control to a guy she knows is about to get married. And as much as Che recognizes that falling in love with Princess Ilana is a bad idea, given his obligations, he's powerless to stop it. So having completed the series, the first one is my favorite. The last two were good, strong in their own right, but didn't have the emotional punch that the first one had. This story was fairly angst free, although there were moments of suspense and romantic tension. Che wasn't a terribly exciting hero - he was a little on the bland side. Nothing abou this personality really stood out to me. But on the positive side I didn't dislike him either. Ilana was a bit more interesting, if not frustrating with her emotional baggage. But I liked her on the whole. What I really liked about this story was Klark's twist. (view spoiler)[ After thinking him a crazy psycho this whole time, when he presents his case to Ilana and we find out that he is actually a good guy, and supposedly all this time he was acting for Che's benefit - it blew my mind. It never happens that way really. And I know I'm going to find myself perusing back to his scenes to try to reinterpret them. It's tough to pull off that kind of twist, but the author succeeded.(hide spoiler)] I was also surprised that the author didn't make use of Che's speil for convincing his father as an opportunity for angst - instead the characters (view spoiler)[ maintained trust in one another and even joked about how everybody thought it was a political maneuver when it was actually a love match(hide spoiler)] Another unexpected move by the author. Wow.

    Illana, is known as the 'Star Princess' a title she abhors. Still living on Earth, her mother still happily married to King Romlijan, and her brother engaged, doesn't know where her life is headed, but she knows it can never be the kind of life her family has picked out. Illana wishes for a life of normality. But when Prince Che Valda comes spiraling into her life, even if its for a distraction and to sow wild oats...Illana is determined not to fall for his charms. Che Valda must marry a bride, whom he has no idea of her identity, but comes to Earth for distractions until then, and the perfect canidate is Illana who memerizes him to the point where he wishes he could forget duty and obligation for once in his life and choose a life with a woman that he aches to keep forever...The Star Princess is the fourth in the Star Series. I have just fallen in love with this author and this series that I have been able to read so far...and at this point one of my favorite sci fi/futuristic romantic series. I definitely loved the story and plot line.....two people who are as different as night and day but are more than perfect for each other. I loved how Susan Grant blended it perfectly the romance, with a bit of mystery and danger and to top it off with passion...just made for a tremendously entertaining read...one that I would never regret. There was a satisfaction upon finishing the story...yet wishing it was longer. Definitely a keeper here!!!

    Argh, this could have been a good book, but the dorky unbelievable crap that kept happening was so annoying. Like the paparazzi bullshit. Ugh, who just opens a door in a towel without checking? I thought this guy was supposed to be intelligent and professionally trained, etc. and what B&B just lets reporters trespass like that? Also, they sucked at keeping shit secret. Oh, no one can know I'm here, so let's just openly discuss family names,in front of reporters we've just assaulted and stolen from.Like I said, could have been good but got bogged down by bad cliches and dorky humor. "Star Prince" was much better.

    I was antsy to get past the setup description of the intergalactic storyline which I remembered from previous book in series but once the action between a prince having his last fling on Earth before arranged marriage and an LA film maker began I was into it and the ending was exciting ... my rating 3.5*

    I got sidetracked by another book in the middle of this one, which probably decreased my enjoyment of it a bit. Perhaps if I'd read straight through, it would have been five stars? More likely, though, I took a break because the heroine was just a bit too Hollywood for me. Definitely worth reading if you enjoyed the first two books in the series, but not the best of the trilogy.

    My Favorite of The Star Series. This book was a complete story, definitely a stand alone and a HEA. This was pretty predicable in the beginning, especially since I have read the first two in the series. But it does not stay that way. I will say no more, no spoilers. Strong males and strong females. A fun read with some depth.

    This was more like a contemporary romance involving a hero from another galaxy.it is a solid good romantic story between Che and Illana. The romance was well-developed and believable.There was very little real action in this book, and the secondary romance was week as well. But the developing relationship between Illana and Che was sweet and compelling, and well worth a few hours

    The Star Princess - (The Star Series, #3) by Susan GrantIlana Hamilton is a fun-loving filmmaker who'd rather work behind the camera than be a "Star Princess" in front of it. Heiress or not, she's a perfectly normal, single woman... until Prince Ché Vedla crashes into her life he is a Hotshot pilot and a trouble magnet...

    3 1/2 stars. This one was something a little different for me. I usually don't read about aliens, etc. It might be right up your alley. It was pretty good. If you are wondering what my bookshelf "take-flight" is, that means it involves some kind of flying. Could be anything from airplanes, to dragons, to angels. In this case it's a spaceship, and the hero makes a good instuctor!
