Princes have pomp and glory—not murdered secretaries and crushes on commoners
Nothing gets London's high society's tongues wagging like a good scandal. And when the personal secretary of the visiting Prince Sebastian of Alucia is found murdered, it's all anyone can talk about, including Eliza Tricklebank. Her unapologetic gossip gazette has benefitted from an anonymous tip about the crime, prompting Sebastian to take an interest in playing detective—and an even greater one in Eliza.
With a trade deal on the line and mounting pressure to secure a noble bride, there's nothing more salacious than a prince dallying with a commoner. Sebastian finds Eliza's contrary manner as frustrating as it is seductive, but they'll have to work together if they're going to catch the culprit. And when things heat up behind closed doors, it's the prince who'll have to decide what comes first—his country or his heart.
The Princess Plan is the first in a new Royal Wedding series.  In this first book, Eliza is runs a gossip paper with her sister.  When she publishes an anonymous tip about the Prince of Alucia's friend's murder, she never dreamt it would bring the Prince to her doorstep.  I thought this was a sweet and fun historical romance.  I will admit to not really liking Sebastian in the beginning.  But he quickly grew on me.  I loved Eliza and Sebastian's friendship.   That was really refreshing. I also LOVED what he did for her in the end.  What a great way to wrap up their love story.   The other characters rounded out the story nicely and added some comic relief.  I am looking forward to reading the next book!
