A Crown Prince gets a second chance at love with the woman who’s always been there – in the next book in the prince duology from Donna Alward!
The Crown Prince of Marazur is suffering from a broken heart. After losing his wife and future queen, he knows he’ll never find love again with a partner as wonderful as her. He’s thrown himself into his duties and is trying to be a better father to his two children, but he’s lonely. Even though falling in love seems impossible, so does spending the rest of his life alone.
Stephani has been Raoul’s assistant for years. Smart, loyal, and discreet, Stephani is fantastic at her job. Except for the fact that she’s been in love with her boss since her first week of employment, not that she would ever act on it. Besides, Raoul is first in line to the throne and she’s his assistant. If Raoul ever marries again, it’ll be with someone who can be a future queen. Not someone like Stephani.
When Raoul’s date for a state dinner is unable to attend, he invites Stephani. She’s well-versed on the issues and castle protocol, and Raoul’s always been comfortable with her. But when Stephani arrives, Raoul hardly recognizes her. Is this stunning woman the same one who’s run his office for years?
The Crown Prince’s Bride is the ultimate fairytale for readers looking for Cinderella to get her prince—and be able to keep him past midnight.
A busy wife and mother of three (two daughters plus the family dog), Donna Alward believes hers is the best job in the world: a combination of stay-at-home mom and romance novelist. Donna loves being back on the East Coast of Canada after nearly twelve years in Alberta where her romance career began, writing about cowboys and the west. She is the author of Somebody Like You, Somebody’s Baby, and Someone to Love.

A: The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George, Witches of New York by Ami McKay, and books I’m judging for the RITA on my kindle.
Q: What author would you totally fan?
A: LaVyrle Spencer. But you know, I actually totally fangirled over Julianne MacLean, as I discovered her historicals maybe…10 years ago? And I glommed. I glommed hard. The first time we met we were doing a signing together. I’m lucky to say we’re now friends. J
Q: What makes you cringe?
A: Videos that have anything to do with losing fingernails/toenails and/or teeth. *shudders*
Q: In your writing process, do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
A: I totally go with the flow.
Q: Is there a word you love to use?
A: Clearly. Though I find I have a different word in each book that needs pruning in the end.
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: Yes! Three. Dreamer is our elderly Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Boo is our very large, very zen cat, and Romeo is our black-and-white cat who is very aptly named. He kisses up to everyone.
