A gruff prince in need of a wife
A commoner impersonating a princess
And a bridal competition gone terribly awry…
I’m the crown prince of Villroy, heir to a kingdom, bound by duty to marry and produce an heir.
I expected a quiet arrangement through royal channels, instead I got a palace full of women vying for my hand. And how do they “win” this barbaric game set up by my crafty mother? By figuring out how to save the kingdom’s faltering economy through a series of challenges. This undignified circus is beneath a man of my stature! Proof being that a saucy, ill-mannered woman wearing body-hugging clothes is in the lead. I could never love someone like that, let alone marry her.
The plan sounded simple.
I pose as my friend, pick up her inheritance, and return with the cash to keep her out of jail. (Apparently, being a princess in hiding is no excuse for identity theft.) So, yeah, I’m not exactly royal. I’m an orphan, a self-made woman, and proud of it. Suddenly I’m in a battle royale with a bunch of crazy competitive women for “riches beyond our dreams.” I’m in a time crunch, which means I need to win this competition fast. Only, that means winning over the judge; the smoldering hot grim-faced Gabriel. And now I find myself wanting to compete for more than just the money. But could a royal prince ever fall for a commoner like me?
This royal romantic comedy stands alone with a swoonworthy happy-ever-after! No cliffhangers.

I loved this book
I love this book and couldn't put it down! I laughed so many times reading this book I'm giving it a solid 5 star review.
I loved every moment Anna's adventures in this Survivor/The Bachelor game for Gabriel's hand in marriage. It was incredibly entertaining to hear how other princesses were acting unbecoming of a princess in their quest for the crown.
Tough decisions will need to be made with Gabriel being bound by duty to the royal family and Anna trying to do the right thing for her family and trying to ensure Gabriel retains his rightful place as king.
