TO PICK A PRINCESS. . .
Press release: This just in!
This week, Prince Dvarius sent the more well-to-do families of our Kingdom into a flurry of activity as they prepped their daughters for an event – the likes of which this country has never seen.
His Royal Highness, Prince Dvarius, last male heir to the Fortine family throne and fortune, has invited twenty-five young women to the Palace for the sole purpose of finding a bride.
Auralius law dictates that any heir – male of female, who wishes to ascend to the throne, must be married and thus able to provide an heir to the throne, leaving Prince Dvarius little choice in the matter. He must marry if he wishes to step into his father’s shoes. . . or crown.
With the unexpected and tragic passing of our beloved King, the responsibilities of the throne have fallen to Queen Shiara until her son weds. Sources inside the palace have hinted that while the Queen continues to fulfill her duties, she rarely leaves her suite of rooms. . . much less the palace itself.
With such tremendous pressure – and not nearly enough time to prepare – can Prince Dvarius find a Queen befitting the magnificent house of Fortine, using such an unconventional method?
Though the palace has refused to comment on the subject, we have managed to gather information on a few of the ladies invited and it appears that the Prince is out to catch a Princess with connections.
The whirlwind romance of our beloved Queen Shiara and dear, departed King Devron is well-known among our young people – a true Cinderella story. Clearly Prince Dvarius is not interested in following his parents example in this area.
Though with so much at stake – and with so little time – perhaps the Prince is merely being practical.
We intend to watch the situation closely and will bring you more news as the story unfolds.

Kayden entered the palace under a lie, one designed to get her close to the Prince. On the outside, she may look like a princess but beneath the mask, a killer lays in wait — for the perfect moment.
Dvarius was not ready to take the crown, nor was he ready for a wife . . .
But due to his father’s unexpected death and an archaic law — he must find a bride before he is allowed to take his rightful place on the throne.
And the one woman he wants — just might be the one who is there to kill him…
