After Isabell's father passed away when she was just twelve years old, her cruel and jealous step-mother reduced her to a life of servitude. Doomed to forever live in her step-sisters' shadow, Isabell never expected a distant relative to show up at her doorstep, promising her a chance at a better life with a noble title. The only catch? She has to attend the king's ball and meet prince Tristan, who just so happens to be in need of a bride before reaching his twenty-first birthday. The only problem? She has no intention of becoming a princess, and Tristan has no interest in love. A masked ball. Two hundred thirty-six ladies. Four men all posing as the prince. A servant boy with a regal sense of charm. One woman caught between it all. Can Isabell win the freedom she's always longed for, or will she find a way to win the prince's heart?
