Violet Eyes (Once Upon a Time) by Debbie Viguie

A Retelling of “The Princess and the Pea”

When a storm brings the dashing Prince Richard to her family’s farm, Violet falls in love at first sight. Richard also gives Violet his heart, but he knows his marriage is destined to be an affair of state, not of passion. For the king and queen have devised a contest to determine who will win their son’s hand in marriage.

To be reunited with her prince, Violet must compete against princesses from across the land. It will take all of her wits — and a little help from an unexpected source — if Violet is to demonstrate the depth of her character and become Richard’s bride.

Hard to Get by Emma Carlson Berne

Val Rushford has it all: The boyfriend, the looks, the grades, the friends–she’s perfect. But when she dumps her cheating boyfriend, Dave, she’s bombarded with all types of advances from boys all over school! Totally overwhelmed, Val decides to swear off boys until the end of the year. She buries herself in her school work and spends all her time on a class project that has her paired up with the artsy and intellectual Adam–the unlikliest candidates to ever win Val’s heart…or so she thinks.

Val soon finds a connection in Adam she has never experienced before, but she’s so dedicated to her promise and so unsure of her feelings that she keeps him at an awkward distance. If Val can’t figure out what she truly wants, she may just lose her one chance at real love!
