You are formally invited to the royal ball…to become the husband to the king!

King Charles of Lysianna needs a husband and fast. He’s up against the biggest time crunch of all—a royal decree stating he must marry or lose the crown. It’s already December and he’s running out of time. Throwing a royal ball to find a suitable man for the role of husband seems like the king’s only option…until he meets Nathan. This royal has always done things his own way—and maybe now it’s time to go rogue.

Nathan Pratt doesn’t want much from life except to raise his son and be happy. Dating isn’t on this single father’s radar until he sees Charles in the castle solarium and his heart goes out to the sad-looking man. Once he meets Charles, he starts to think love might be possible. There’s just the small issue of Charles being the king…

Will Nathan be able to handle the glare of the spotlight with Charles beside him, or will the notoriety that comes with dating a royal be too much?

Just when you think you’re in the clear, the wicked stepmother throws another spanner in the works.

Although you could read this as a standalone, I would recommend you read it after Runaway Royal by Wendi Zwaduk. It features the same characters and places as in that one, so it will help give you more of an idea of what’s going on.

Now, Charlie helped Zara in that book, but now it’s his turn. And due to his stepmother’s decree, he has to marry someone by the end of the year or give his crown away to someone who is unscrupulous, devious, and just plain nasty. Luckily for Charlie, he meets the new Royal Archivist, Nathan, who is about to make everything better.

Just as before, this moves at supersonic pace, but it still seems to work. Insta-love all around, in fact, this time it’s insta-family too as little baby River is also involved. The openings are there for many more stories in this series. There are a couple of plot-holes that weren’t explained, and then other times when things go almost unrealistically smoothly.

Still, if you can suspend belief, you will enjoy this contemporary fairy tale, as recommended by me.
