He is a spoiled playboy prince whose family is in desperate need of money.

She’s an American heiress who can only get her inheritance through marriage.

According to their families they are a perfect match.

According to each other, arranged marriages have no place in modern times and this could not possibly work.

But Prince Galahad “Gale” of Ersovia is bound by duty to obey the crown anyway.

Odette Wyntor doesn’t give a damn, she doesn’t want to get married.

Can he change her mind?

Can she even handle what it means to be royal, if he did?

The Prince’s Bride is Part 1 of a 2 part series. Part 2 arrives a month later.


Grabbing the bottom of my dress, I marched down the rest of the stairs, feeling my blood boil over. “Mother! Where are you? I know you’re here.”

“She said she’d be right back.”

I glanced over my shoulder at him, willing my brain to stop processing the fact that he could speak English and that he was actually here. Turning away again, I stomped up to the doors, the only doors into the penthouse, and yanked on the handle, but the doorknob wouldn’t open. I pulled again, then one more time.

“Are you freakin’ kidding?” I screamed, yanking on it like a madwoman until my phone rang. Letting go of the knob and looking to my phone, sure enough, I found the Wicked Witch of the West was calling.


“Wilhelmina Wyntor-Smith, have you lost your mind?”

“Excuse you! Watch your tone! You’re speaking to your mother!” she yelled back into the phone.

I stared at my cell in amazement. “So, you know you’re my mom! I thought you’d forgotten since you trapped me in here with a stranger! Who does that?”

“He’s not stranger. He’s—”

“I don’t care! I don’t know him, and he’s in my home! He could be a murderer!”

“I’m not,” his deep voice chimed in behind me.

“He could be a rapist—”

“I’m most definitely not,” he spoke again.

Whipping my head back, I glared at him. However, he just leaned on the couch, watching me carefully. “Hi. Please, do me a favor and shut up while I try to get you out of here. Thank you.”

He nodded and gave me a thumbs-up.

“Odette Rochelle Wyntor, I did not raise you to be rude.”

“No, but apparently you raised me to be insane,” I snapped back. “What happened to everything you said this morning, huh? What happened to not rushing? To planning to strike when I no longer suspected you?”

“I did.”

I inhaled and exhaled hard, and I prayed a bit before speaking again. “Mom.” I was really trying to be calm. “Please, come undo whatever you did to the door. This is entrapment. You are currently breaking the law. If you don’t care about my well-being, please remember you are also holding a prince of some nation—”


I glanced over to him again. And he pretended to scroll through his phone.

“You are holding the Prince of Ersovia captive. Do you know how crazy that sentence is? My mother kidnapped a prince!”

“I didn’t kidnap anyone. He came of his own free will,” she said.

“Well, not exactly,” he muttered.
