About ROYAL MARRIAGE MARKET: Every decade, the world’s monarchs and their heirs secretly convene to discuss global politics and social issues—and arrange marriages between kingdoms. Elsa may be the Hereditary Princess of Vattenguldia, but she finds the entire situation archaic and unsavory. While she wants what's best for her country, she isn't about to jump into an unwanted relationship—let alone a marriage—with a virtual stranger. Of course, her feelings matter little to her parents, whose wheeling and dealings over trade pacts and alliances achieved at her expense begin the moment they set foot in California for the Summit. So when a blindingly handsome royal runs into her, she doesn't hesitate to tell him there's no way she's marrying him. Christian is all too happy to agree: no marriage. As the Hereditary Grand Duke of Aiboland, his main goal is to get through the summit without a bride being foisted on him. Which is why he suggests they help each other field potential intendeds. As Christian slowly gets to know Elsa, though, he realizes they have a lot more in common than just their feelings about the Royal Marriage Market. Only he can't fall for her, because royal or not, they're not meant for each other. Elsa and Christian will have to evaluate matters of the heart verses those of state and crown, and decide whether or not tradition trumps love.
"The perfect royal romance." Nichole Chase, New York Times bestselling author.
This was a great royal read from Heather Lyons.
The story is about Elsa and Christian who are both princess and prince of their own respectable countries. Every 10 years the royal council has a get together to not only discuss business between the countries but it also a the host of the Royal Marriage Market (RMM) where princesses and princes are set up with each for an arranged marriage. Elsa and Christian can't the linked because they are next in line to the thrones however during the RMM they spend time together and develop a friendship and when feelings grow they have to figure out how to be together.
It took me a while to get in to this one and I think it was the style it was written in. There was a very aristocratic feel to the writing but once Elsa and Christian got to meeting each other I was hooked into the story. I think it was because of the slight forbidden romance aspect. It was told from duel POV which was great to get into their heads. I really liked both characters, it took me a while to warm to Elsa as she was so uptight in the beginning but once she begun to let go with Christian I warmed to her.
Overall a great story with a fairy tale feel.
