The Crown by Kierra Cass
The competition for finding the future king/Eadlyn’s husband begins.
She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.
Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. Eadlyn must make a choice by that feels impossible for her. Yet, this decision is way more important than she ever imagined.
“Finding a prince might mean kissing a lot of frogs.”
We clearly see how Eadlyn is against marrying someone just because she is involved in a contest.
