'Charming is a kingdom where fairy tales come true, which has been bad news for its troubled royal family, but good news for the gutter press that thrives on the scandals and gossip provided by their teenage Princes Gone Wild. Kai is a rookie reporter at the Charming Herald. Dennis is a new Royal Hound, charged with protecting the self-destructive princes from disaster.

'Disaster arrives in a pumpkin coach… The story of the century will be wearing glass slippers… and Castle Charming will never be the same again.'

'Winter has fallen over Castle Charming: a season of frosty sports, mistletoe kisses and desperate attempts at matchmaking. Chase and Cyrus, the castle’s resident Princes Gone Wild, are behaving suspiciously well. But who is dancing their way through a stash of expensive satin slippers every night? And who is the mysterious soldier from Sarge’s past?

'All Kai wants to do is solve the mystery and write stories for his newspaper, with maybe a little lovelorn pining on the side. But his friendships in the castle collide with his professional loyalties, and he’s on the verge of losing everything he has ever wanted. Meanwhile, Dennis bottles up a secret he never meant to keep, Ziyi comes to terms with not being a princess any more, and they all have to figure out which Prince Charming is most in need of being saved.

'When you hit rock bottom, only truth and fairy cocktails will set you free…'
