"The Queen will want to see me!" 
Gradma Singer was a fearsome creature. If we ever did have a war under my rule, my plan was to send her to the front lines. She'd come home holding the enemy by his ear within a week. 

Synopsis
When Eadlyn became the first princess of IllĂ©a to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. 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. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.
What teasers do you have this week?

  2. Hi Mandy, I'm visiting from Friday 56 at Freda's Voice!

    It must be awful to have to marry the 'right person' for your family, your country, etc. Whatever happened to love, eh? I do hope "Grandma" gets hers.

    Here's my Friday 56.
