When a lonely American event planner starts dating the gay Prince of Wales, a royal uproar ensues: is it true love or the ultimate meme? After having his heart trampled on by his cheating ex, Carter Ogden is afraid that love just isn’t in the cards for him. He still holds out hope in a tiny corner of his heart, but even in his wildest dreams he never thought he’d meet the crown prince of England, much less do a lot more with him. Yes, growing up he had fantasized about the handsome, openly gay Prince Edgar, but who hadn’t? When they meet by chance at an event organized by Carter’s boss, Carter is sure he imagined all that sizzling chemistry. Or was it mutual? This unlikely but meant-to-be romance sets off media fireworks on both sides of the Atlantic.  With everyone having an opinion on their relationship and the intense pressure of being constantly in the spotlight, Carter finds ferocious obstacles to his “happily ever after,” including the tenacious disapproval of the queen of England. Carter and Price Edgar fight for a happy ending to equal their glorious international beginning. It’s a match made on Valentine’s Day and in tabloid heaven.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Michael Urie’s rambunctious narration will have listeners laughing…Urie’s work with accents is astonishing. In addition to a variety of New York accents for Carter’s large family, Urie also provides an impressive British accent for Edgar and the rest of the royal family, whom Carter comically fails to impress. At times, Urie’s dialogue can go over the top, but he is always able to tone it down for the quiet heartfelt moments.” AudioFile
