Princess Qloey is the heir to the Velazian Empire and of age to choose a husband. Twelve boys are invited to compete in a month long competition to win her heart and a seat on the throne. She thinks finding the right husband will be an easy and swift process, but after she meets the charming princes, beautiful elves, a dwarf, and a commoner, her heart gets swept off in different directions.

Amidst several assassination attempts, centaur attacks, publicized group dates, and royal favoritism towards some competitors, choosing a husband becomes the hardest decision of her life, and threatens Qloey’s very right to inherit the throne.
More about the Book

During the competitions, one of the bachelors tries to assassinate the princess, but nobody knows which man is responsible. The princess soon finds that she might accidentally end up choosing her intended killer as a husband, instead of someone who actually loves her.

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