Isn’t it every girl’s dream to become a princess? Not Claire Thomson’s. An orthopedic surgeon, Claire enjoys the rigors of surgery and medical research. Her dream of landing a spot at Halford University in Boston seems so close she can taste it. As the top academic center in the nation, it lies just a few miles from her sole living relative and best friend—Margaret Thomson, her granny.
Claire Thomson grew up without a father, and this missing piece of her life’s puzzle leaves her feeling unworthy. But Claire has landed a one-year fellowship at Oxmund University in Amorley, and she intends to find that puzzle piece—back at the same university where her recently deceased mother, Mona, met her father years ago.
Claire reads a letter written to her by her mother, finally sharing the truth about her father’s identity—the prince of Amorley. Sadly, he too has recently passed away.
Now parentless, Claire takes her rascal golden retriever, Milo, and funny, Bingo-loving Granny to the castle to meet the queen mother, her paternal grandmother, as well as her stepmother, Queen Maurelle. Along the way, Claire almost collides with a man on horseback, Ethan Kane, who is handsome and kind, and as she later discovers, promised to marry Abigail Fulton, daughter of a wealthy parliament member.

New questions abound about the integrity of the crown and the necessity of its future. If Claire cannot prove her loyalty to Amorley and disavow her involvement in a nefarious plot to defraud the country’s coffers for personal gain, then she may have to postpone more than just her wedding. She may have to leave the life she’s come to love in her father’s homeland as Parliament calls the monarchy into question.
Dangers lurk in the castle, and if Claire’s not careful, she will lose more than her crown; she will lose her life.
