A reality TV show.?
Twenty girls.?
One prince.

Most girls would jump at the chance to be with Scotland's hottest eligible royal, but not Sapphire Midston. Especially not so when she finds out she's forced onto a show for a prince that she doesn't want...

Surviving each elimination is every other girl's goal but Sapphire's disappointment. So when Saph's disappointment becomes a failure, she finds out something about the prince no other human new. She finds out something about herself, that she'd never known. And that something... that one thing could change her life forever. It could change Kale's life forever.

Sapphire's forced to make a decision no person should ever make. Because love isn't about life, but death. Love isn't about you, but how much you're willing to sacrifice...

Just An Act?

Submitted: August 01, 2010

Sapphire Midston's parents, only wish for one thing. To live to see the day they give their daughter's hand away. They are not desperate to sell her, but they wish for her happiness. Only, their definitions of happiness are worlds apart.

Kale Mitt's parents have similar hopes, only their desperation drives them to do what no other parent has done.

A reality TV show.?
Twenty girls.?
One prince.

After threatening to take away her college fund, Sapphire reluctantly agrees to her parents profusely insane idea, she enters the show. Her only goal is to make the Prince hate her as much as possible and get eliminated as soon as possible. Little did she know, that her parents had very different plans.

Deciding he'd already become the joke of the royal family, Kale only had one thing in mind. To enjoy the opportunity with twenty girls, all to himself. Expecting to be showered in flirty compliments and desperation to win his heart like normal, he finds a nail that needs to be hammered down.
The love hate relationship between the pair suddenly becomes the media's only attention. A reality TV show becoming a soap opera, every part of Sapphire and Kale's relationship is caught on camera. How much is shown to the world, they don't know.

Unsure of whether it's real, or it's just an act, Sapphire backs away to save herself a broken heart. But maybe by that time, it'll be too late to turn back again... Read Chapter
