Donna Alward‘s new release THE CROWN PRINCE'S BRIDE is in this week's spotlight. The book is part of her Prince DuologyHere's what a reviewer had to say about Donna's book:

“The Crown Prince’s Bride is a sweet, wonderful, heartwarming romance, with some heartbreaking moments….Donna Alward has written a very enjoyable, sweet contemporary romance. She always gives us great likable characters, and from the start you will root for Stephani to get her fairy tale romance.”—Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for THE CROWN PRINCE'S BRIDE:

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 fairy tale for readers looking for Cinderella to get her prince—and be able to keep him past midnight.
