Prince Zadkiel narrows his choices in marriage down to five girls, each of whom has won his heart. But as rebels continue to attack the RMC contestants, spies run rampant in the palace, and tension with Baylor and Payonna reaches its peak. The Velazian royal family realizes that they have more enemies than they thought. Prince Zadkiel wonders if he will live to see the day he becomes crowned ruler of the Velazian Empire.

Reader Views

“The blossoming romances between Zadkiel and his possible brides, such as Grace, Esperanza, and Makayla, were both sweet and wholesome while also holding a fair amount of slow-burn, spicy romantic zest.”

Reedsy Discovery

“Galloay has created a vivid fairytale world, with bright and vivacious characters.”

Book Viral Review

“Cheeky in it’s approach, spirited, and splendidly written. The Royal Matchmaking Competition is a must-read for fans of Teen & Young Adult Romantic Fantasy and is highly recommended.

Indie Book Review

“Readers will love Galloay’s diverse fantasy world and its people. It’s filled with elves, dwarves, nymphs, fairies, and more with their own unique cultures.”

Jaime Garner Review

“This book is a bit like a fun recipe. If you take a scoop of “The Bachelor”, a scoop of fantasy, a teaspoon of “The Dating Game,” a dash of royal family drama and a sprinkling of “Princess Diaries” I think that you’d end up with something fairly close to this book.

Readers’ Favorite

“The Royal Matchmaking Competition is a delightful young adult fantasy romance with a touch of intrigue and excitement… [it] combines coming of age with romance and mystery in a terrific contemporary fairy story.”

Warning: if you like princesses who fly on the backs of gryphons, light fantasy worlds, a pinch of humor, a dash of romance, and a smidgen of mystery, this fairy tale might be just for you. Side effects to reading might include hoping the book will never end, getting lost in the pages, and wishing you lived in an alternate reality where you can choose your spouse out of twelve contestants. Read at your own risk!
