We’re all very excited at Harlequin HQ about the wedding of Prince William of Wales to Catherine Middleton. I wasn’t around to see the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana (having been born in 1985), so this truly is a new spectacle for me, and millions of other young women like me who love a good party.
Our Royal Weddings ebook collection is just the ticket for those of us in the mood to immerse ourselves in royal romance before the big day arrives (April 29th! But who’s counting?).
There’s something to be said about a prince marrying a commoner (but certainly not a common gal.) Think of it: you’re living your run-of-the-mill life and all of a sudden you meet a prince. Now working at Harlequin I have to say that I’ve got a bit of experience in that. For instance, you might know he’s a prince so you’re already on edge when you’re hired to work for him. But when he meets you for the first time you both feel like you’ve been hit by a Mac truck. Sparks fly, love is in the air, and before you know it, there’s a massive ring on your finger.
Or perhaps you have no idea that he’s a blue blood, so you, being a practical sort of girl, treat him no differently than anyone else, and he’s utterly charmed by your lack of deference, your easy wit and that sparkle in your eye whenever he comes just a little bit too close.
One day you realize you’ve been hit by love. You get married to Prince Dreamboat and all of a sudden your whole life is made topsy-turvy.
Not a bad story, right? That’s probably why it’s a big theme for a lot of romance authors, like the ladies of the Royal Wedding ebook collection: Terri Brisbin, Michelle Willingham, Bronwyn Scott, Elizabeth Rolls, Lucy Ashford, Mary Nichols and Ann Lethbridge. Each of these fabulous Historical authors have crafted a story based on the future king’s ancestors and the people who helped bring their special days together.
As for me, I recently Googled Prince Harry. He’s a year older than me and quite focused on his military career right now. With a possible tour in Afghanistan on the horizon, you can bet that he’s not looking to settle down any time soon. But! He’s single and attractive. How does one go about meeting a prince casually? I’ll take any suggestions. I’m not averse to moving to London, either, folks. That said, I’m in no rush myself, so if we ever do meet (you never know!) perhaps it might be one of those serendipitous moments…
Alright, I’m really dreaming now, but you can’t fault a girl for trying. He’s cute!
