A disgraced pop princess finds herself falling in love with a brooding prince in Sarah Morgan's contribution to The Santina Crown continuity: Defying the Prince.
When wild child Izzy Jackson had taken part in a TV talent show, she thought that her future as a singing sensation was assured. After years of dreaming of becoming a chart-topping pop star, Izzy's dream finally looked like it was within reach; but unfortunately her record flopped and her fledgling career was over before it even started. However, Izzy refused to give up on her dreams. She was determined to prove to her detractors - and to her family who had never believed in her - that she had what it takes to make it as a singer. All she needed was a chance to show the world how talented she really is, but who is going to take a chance on a wannabe singer whose failure had been so public? When Izzy's sister Allegra announces that she's marrying into the royal Santina family, the aspiring singer hatches a plan that will enable her to prove her mettle in front of the world's press and Prince Matteo, her sister's soon to be brother in law who knows all the top people in the music industry. Prince Matteo could be the one to make all of Izzy's dreams of superstardom a reality. But there's a catch: Prince Matteo thinks that Izzy is a vacuous airhead who doesn't have a single talented bone in her entire body!
Matteo cannot fathom what possessed his brother to marry into the notorious Jackson family. With their penchant for drinking and rabble-rousing, the members of the Jackson clan have become firm favourites with the paparazzi and their exploits are regularly splashed all over the tabloids. Despite all this, Matteo still hopes that his brother's engagement party to Allegra Jackson will be a dignified affair. However, all his hopes are dashed when tipsy starlet Izzy gets up on stage and begins to belt out a raucous tune in the middle of proceedings! Determined to ensure that his brother's reception does not degenerate into a farce, Matteo finds himself with no other option but to smuggle Izzy out of the party, into his limo and straight to his secluded luxury palazzo!
Izzy is absolutely furious with Matteo! She cannot believe that the arrogant prince had the gall to interrupt her performance and make a complete fool out of her! Izzy is determined to show Matteo that she deserves to be taken seriously as an artist, but what the spirited singer hadn't counted on was making sweet music with the gorgeous prince!
Is Matteo ready to overcome his bias against Izzy? Or will prejudice lose him the only woman he can ever love?
