Prince Marcos Sayid claims the title of Crown Prince when his brother, Jared Sayid, dies suddenly of a motorcycle crash. Forced to marry immediately and produce an heir, Marcos proposes to Lyla Donovan, a girl he’s known for eight minutes, and whisks her away on an exotic honeymoon only to come home to his kingdom on the brink of civil war. Not willing to risk the life of his young bride and their newborn prince, Marcos takes the crown and a few devoted subjects and flees the country.
Two generations later, with the fate of the kingdom hanging in the balance, Prince Elmer Sayid quietly leads from behind his domineering older brother. Having been told all his life that his bloodline is insignificant because he’s so far removed for the title of Crown, he marries his childhood sweetheart, Savannah, even though she isn’t a princess, nor does she hold a title. Yet, Elmer is the only prince left to hold the hand of the king when he takes his last breath.
With their kingdom brushed off the map like the sands in the Arabian Desert, Elmer and Savannah’s son, Prince Ethan, takes their billions and their blessing, and escapes to America, determined to put their money to good use before he succumbs to his end-stage cancer. Ethan didn’t count on falling in love with his estate planning attorney, Natalie Dolan, a few days before his body is ready to give up.
