He’s a prince who can’t keep his pants on. She writes dirty limericks in a Brooklyn deli. Their spontaneous royal wedding is a match made in mayhem.
I have to find a wife.
And not just any wife.
A love match.
My parents gave me ten years to find a princess on my own, and the deadline has arrived.
I’ve outrun the palace guards for months, but due to an incident with a rooster Speedo that went viral, they have tracked me to America.
I’m not known for my stellar taste in the opposite sex. The last one put my naked pictures on Instagram.
But there is this one girl. I saw her in a New York deli making sandwiches. She helped me escape the photographers.
Smart. Beautiful. Quick-witted.
Yes. I choose her.
Now all I have to do in convince her to marry me.
In the next seven days.
Royal Pickle is a standalone romantic comedy about a prince on the run, a poet with a dream, and a made-up European country where everyone likes to sing and dance. With donkeys.

“I like the sneaky workings of your brilliant mind.” The Prince tugs the Pickle deli hat low on his head, almost obscuring those devilish eyes.
We cross the kitchen to the back door, Rachel trailing behind.
He tugs it open and peers out. “Which way?”
I point down the alley. “Head to that street, then to the right two blocks. The photographers are headed the other way.”
He turns to grin at me. “You’re really saving me here. Can I kiss you?”
I take a step back. “Uh. No.”
“Damn. I never like to leave a beautiful girl unkissed. Handshake then?”
I hold mine out. “Sure.”
He grips my palm and my whole body feels electrified, like he carries a charge. I stare at my hand after he lets it go.
He touches the hat brim, and then he’s gone.
Rachel peers out the door. “Awww, Sunny, why didn’t you kiss him?” She crosses her arms over her green deli apron. “I could have been your waiting lady or something.”
I push the door closed. “If he kisses every girl he sees, he doesn’t sound like happily-ever-after material.”
Rachel kicks out her hip. “He didn’t ask to kiss ME.”
