  Danielle has been controlled all her life. She spends all of her free time in manners lessons with a strict governess, except when she sneaks out at night to attend her dragon. So, when she is summoned to take part in a competition to marry the prince, she has no desire to go. However, she has no choice and soon finds herself on her way to the palace, followed by her faithful dragon. Always having kept to herself, Danielle begins to learn what it's like to be a regular girl. As she adjust to palace life, she meets all sorts of servants as well as the other girls there for the competition and, of course, the prince himself. She's determined to leave the palace at the end of the year to go home, but where is home really?
