Detrás de los tirabuzones y el carmín rojo de Lola se escondía una chica que siempre había creído que valía poco. Chase tendría que convencerla de que la amaba tal y como era, ya fuera vestida con un glamour de los de antes o con un vestido de novia.

På en gemensam väns bröllop möts de igen, och visst finns känslorna kvar. Men frågan är om Garrick någonsin kommer kunna förstå, förlåta … och älska Zara igen?

Det var en gång ... Donna Alward

När Lucy blev vuxen fick hon komma till hovet och leva som en riktig prinsessa. Men hon saknade sitt gamla liv. Och hon förstod inte hur hon skulle kunna hitta en prins i kungariket. Hennes drömprins var en man som bodde på landet och förstod sig på hästar.

Så bestämde kungen att hans dotter skulle åka till en ranch och titta på några fina avelshästar till hovstallet. Men det första Lucy lade märke till när hon kom fram var inte hästarna, utan den snygge ranchägaren Brody Hamilton …
