Being princess of Saxony Coburn isn't all that Abby imagined. Sure, she has servants and never has to iron her clothes. But, she also has to get used to her "parents" the king and queen. She has to wear old fashioned clothes. And, as princess she has no right to privacy. She also finds out that the girl who she was switched with is still living in the palace and has a grudge against her. One good thing is when Abby falls for the reporter who interviews her for television, and he feels the same way. But, there is a problem there, too. Abby is bethroned to Prince Casimir. She is supposed to marry this man who she has never met. What's worse is, she can't stand him after she does meet him.

Abby decides it's time to abdicate, but they won't let her. The marriage is important to the Royal family, because Casimir has the money they need. The only solution Abby can think of is to become a royal pain, so Casimir won't want to marry her. She sets out to become the most annoying princess that anyone has ever seen.
