The Royal Matchmaking Competition:

Princess Zoyechka

#1 New Release on Amazon

“It doesn’t take a prophet to know you’ll get into loads of trouble before your RMC even begins. And twice as much after it does.”


Recipe for finding a husband:

1) Take suitors on dangerous gryphon rides—and test theirwillingness to stick around longer.

2) Spy on the bachelors—to discover their true.

3) Let the suitors viciously fight over you—until you hopelessly fall in love with one.

4) Mix it together until you find the best future king consort.


One elven princess perpetually getting into trouble.
Twelve men seeking to woo her.
One suitor manipulating the events from behind the scenes.

Princess Zoyechka must choose a husband from a pool of royals, nobles, elves, dwarves, and commoners, all of whom endure daily competitions to win dates … and the chance to become the Supreme King of Velazia. But things go awry when one bachelor proves to be a spy trying to steal the Crown’s secrets. The problem is, Zoyechka doesn’t know who the culprit is—so how can she avoid choosing him as her husband?

 Warning: if you like gryphon-riding princesses, light fantasy worlds, a pinch of humor, a dash of romance, and a smidgen of mystery, this fairy tale mixture might be for you. Side effects of reading might include: hoping the book will never end, getting lost in the pages, and wishing you lived in an alternate reality with suitors vying for your attention. Read at your own risk!

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.”

“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.”
