Have you heard the news? Word from Aldonia is that our illustrious Crown Prince is finally in the market for a princess.
With the prince’s two younger siblings married off, it was only a matter of time that Prince Christopher found a bride.
My sources in the palace, however, tell me that the search may have hit a bit of a snag.
Not because of anything our dear prince has done, of course. Nay, it seems that the arrival of a certain English miss has caught a few eyes.
Though the lady’s connections are undeniably good, we’re not all that convinced that she is fit to be a queen.
Have no fear, dear readers. As you well know, Prince Christopher has never acted in a way that is anything less than perfect. And he has only ever put crown and country before all else.
But we must wonder; why do our sources tell us that he’s been acting somewhat out of character around the gel?
And word has it that the mysterious Lady L’s cousin was very much in line to take the crown. Will there be familial discord? And will our dear prince shock us all with an unexpected announcement soon?
We doubt that he’d do anything to shock us. But then, considering his brother ran off to England, and his sister married the help, one can never tell.
We shall keep our eyes and ears very much open, and report back when we have even a sniff of scandal about our fearless leader.

About the Book
Heavy is the heart that wears the crown…
Prince Christopher Wesselbach learned from a young age that crown and country come before everything else.
Now, as Crown Prince and future king, he knows that duty to the throne requires him to marry.
But he also knows from bitter experience that women are fickle and not to be trusted. So, he’ll choose a wife based on what Aldonia needs in a queen and nothing else. He won’t allow a woman to change the life he chooses to live, and he won’t be foolish enough to let his heart get involved in the decision.
Lady Lucia Allenwood does not fit in with royalty. If stealing from the queen wasn’t proof enough of that, then engaging in illicit meetings with a handsome stranger certainly was.
But her cousin seems to have caught the interest of the elusive Prince Christopher and so Lucy must do her best to stay out of trouble, and not disgrace the family name.
Despite their best intentions, Lucy and Christopher can’t seem to stay out of each other’s ways, and when they clash, sparks inevitably fly.
But can Christopher learn to trust? Not just a lady, but his own heart?
And will Lucy be able to redeem this royal?
