California Royale is the first novel in the American Royale series. Each book is a stand alone story, thus you don’t have to read the others in order to understand what is going on, though there may be a few surprise cameos if you do.
Fifty years ago, California, along with the rest of the states, seceded from the U.S. and became their own independent country. Like many of the others, California decided to adopt a Monarchy as their ruling form of government. With this power, their new king instituted a medieval-esque class system to help maintain his rule over the coastal country. The rich became nobles, athletes became knights, Business owners became merchants and the rest became peasants.
Scout Bishop is struggling to get by. At least she was until a group of reporters showed up at her work, claiming she had been chosen to marry one of the Prince as a sign of progress from the King.

Can Scout put up with this arranged marriage long enough to make things better for the working class in California, or will she go running back to her ordinary life just to get away from Prince Not-So-Cha
