The prince is an irresponsible flirt who won’t settle down. The king needs an heir who will grow up and take care of the kingdom. What’s the solution? A royal ball, of course.
Despite Princess Anastasia’s doubts, the prince does meet a girl who’s different from all the others. But what’s this? A wicked stepmother, and several stepsisters? If there’s a girl who can ever learn to put up with the prince’s self-centeredness, her past may ruin this romance—and the ball!—before anyone gets a fairytale ending.

I’d never have a chance with Johnnie’s girl.
There’s Johnnie Reynolds – charming, handsome, up-and-coming movie star – and then there’s me, Cricket. That’s the way it always has been. Johnnie can outshine me any day, and I’ve always been okay with that. Until the day I meet Johnnie’s girl, Debbie, and I start to wish I wasn’t the sidekick of this show, but the star…
Emma is restless and discontented. Not with her job – she loves her job. This is the same restless feeling she used to get in school, when the teacher droned on and on and she stared out the window at bright blue skies, longing to be out in the warm sunshine… When everyone around her is falling in love.
But it definitely isn’t spring time. Still, maybe Emma is falling in love…
Why else would Emma have spring fever, when it’s almost Christmas?
