Lizzie Royle is the last unmarried Royle sister and the one who has prophetic dreams of the future. She dreams that she marries a prince with unusual eyes. She sees the man and is told that he is indeed a prince who wants to marry the Princess of Wales.

Sumner, Lord Whitevale is in town to help his cousin, Prince Leopold court Charlotte, Princess of Wales. Attempts on his life make it impossible for him to go out in public, so Sumner, who looks more princely, goes out in his stead.

The Royle sisters, purportedly the secret daughters of the Prince of Wales have taken the Ton by storm. Now Elizabeth is the only unmarried sister and she has set her sights on the impossible, the man who wants to marry her possible half-sister, the Princess of Wales. Determined to marry the man of her dreams, she has a tough task in front of her.

Although I really enjoyed this book, I am sorry to see the series end. The triplets and their sponsors, the Old Rakes, Lady Upperton and Great Aunt Prudence are some of the best characters I have enjoyed in a historical romance. This particular story has more than the usual amount of misdirection and conflict which makes it very hard to put down. I always liked Lizzie and her dreams and was eager to read her story. The characters, as usual were wonderful, particularly the princely Lord Whitevale, and the plot is loaded with historical detail. A lot of the historicals of the period mention Princess Charlotte, but she is never a real person as in this story. The author also shares the secret of the origins of the three which is the icing on the cake of this great story.
