His Royal Hotness Week~Day Three

Today my friend Nicole Zoltack stops by with a prince from her Kingdom of Arnhem series. While this series is more about Aislinn, Nicole does write an awesome prince. Now here's Nicole to tell about her prince.

Who doesn't love a prince? There aren't many little girls out there who haven't dreamed of meeting one and falling in love and dancing in castles and becoming a princess. At least, I know I did. I never imagined being queen, though, just a princess.

My first hero in a published work was a prince. Prince Caelan. Tall, handsome, brave and loyal (all traits every hero should have!), Caelan was a true prince in every sense of the word. He would do anything for his kingdom, even if it meant he couldn't be with the woman he truly loved.

I know princes and princesses grow up knowing their lives aren't truly their own, but it's hard to picture a world where you can't do as you wish because you have to do what is expected of you. There's more to be a prince than just dancing with beautiful princesses.

Top 4 Disney Princes (in ascending order):
4) Prince Flynn. (He's a prince by marriage.) Fun and funny. Definitely makes life more interesting.
3) Prince Charming. But that might be more because of Once Upon a Time than Disney…
2) Prince Eric. So cute and more than just a rich guy.
1) Prince Phillip. He takes on a freakin' dragon. Obviously aces in my book.

Random Trivia about princes:
-Many princes have served or trained with their military services including Prince William & Prince Harry (Great Britain), Prince Carl-Philip (Sweden), Prince Haji' (Brunei), Prince Amedeo (Belgium), and Prince Hamdan (UAE)

-Many princes know multiple languages. Prince Felix of Luxembourg in 4 (Luxembourgish, French, English, & German) and studied 2 more (Spanish and Italian), and Prince Andrea of Monaco is fluent in 4 (English, French, Italian, and German). 

Book Recommendations:

Woman of Honor of course! The story with Prince Caelan :)

The False Prince. I haven't read this yet but I want to.

The Little Prince. A cute little book.

Aislinn of Bairbhe dreams of becoming a lady knight to 
honor the death of her fallen brother. To her mother's horror, King Patrick grants Aislinn's wish.

Despite the mockery of the other pages and the disdain of Prince Caelen, who also trains to be a knight, Aislinn commits herself to her training and embarks on a journey of self-discovery and bravery.

Through the years, Aislinn and Caelen grow from sparring classmates to good friends. Honor, bravery, and yes, love are worth fighting for even when they both know that someday Caelen will have to marry for the sake of the kingdom.

Nicole Zoltack writes fantasy/paranormal, romances, horror, historical; for adults, YA, MG, and PB; novels, short stories, and flash pieces. She's also an editor for MuseItUp Publishing and works as a freelance editor.

When she isn't writing about girls wanting to be knights, talking unicorns, and zombies, she spends time with her loving family. She loves to ride horses (pretending they're unicorns, of course!) and going to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, dressed in period garb.

  1. The story sounds great, Nicole! I love the trivia about the real royals too.

    1. I read the series and thought it was amazing. Thanks for dropping by, Kai!

  2. What a great prince, Nicole. Love the trivia - I've always daydreamed of someone that could speak multiple languages. We'd have private little conversations in front of others. (as long as you know they don't speak the language either! lol) Silly, right? but a they don't call so many of them Romance Languages for nothing. :)

    1. Ah, romance languages. Love that!

      Thanks for dropping in! And I loved the prince on your blog today, too!
