For centuries, the royal family of Aridia has hosted The Choice, the competition where the eligible daughters of the Nobles of Aridia, come together to vie for the hand of the heir to the throne. This year, Prince Carlos is the heir to the throne and is in need of a suitable wife. As well as the Kingdom of Aridia, which is in need of the entertainment and excitement that comes along with The Choice. Lady Madeline Prowess is...not a lady. She enjoys climbing trees, riding on her wild horse and definitely doesn't resemble the ladies that she's supposed to compete against- with her lack of curves and unruly hair. She surely doesn't want to slave away in front of a prince she doesn't care about. But, The Choice isn't what Madeline thinks it is. The palace is full of lies, deceit, betrayal and sabotage as each girl tries to win the hand of the ice cold Prince.
