Prince Florian has chosen his bride. Unfortunately he doesn't know who she is or where she lives because she left his Grand Ball in such a hurry on the stroke of midnight. His only clue is the satin slipper she lost in her hurry to leave.
Lucinda Heartsong plans to marry Jonathon Tinker. She doesn't want to try the lost slipper when the prince's footman comes calling but he won't take no for an answer. The slipper fits perfectly and Lucinda is whisked off to the palace to become the prince's bride.
The minute Lucinda is brought to Prince Florian, he knows there's been a mistake - but he must honour his promise to marry the maiden whose foot was a perfect fit for the lost slipper.
Will Prince Florian and Lucinda have to make the best of their mismatch - or live happily ever after with their own true loves?
