Kingdom of Glamdire

Princess Doshi Glamdire has always lived in the shadow of her older sister, Gabriella. Although Doshi is only two years younger than her sister, who is nicknamed Wild Rose for her promiscuous behavior, Gabriella always seems to get more attention. So much so, that Doshi feels like she might as well be invisible. Then one day, while thinking this and looking outside the castle windows, she sees an old woman. Doshi hears the woman's voice inside her head, and she tells Doshi that her wish will be granted. From that day forth, Doshi has the ability to become invisible.King Glamdire, sick of Gabriella's unruly behavior, decides to marry her off to Prince Tarin and throws a party to celebrate the union. When Doshi sees her father talking to the most beautiful man she has ever seen, she uses her powers of invisibility to kiss him, and in the process, hears her father refer to him as Prince Tarin, the man who is to wed her sister. Doshi is a good person, but not so good as to completely keep away from Prince Tarin. She's a virgin, after all, and has never been this attracted to a man. Although Doshi does wonder, why isn't Prince Tarin troubled by her invisibility?

Ever been asked, "If you had a choice between flying or invisibility, which power would you choose?" I have always chosen invisibility, and after reading this story you will know why. Doshi, always feeling like the most overlooked person in the room, ironically gains confidence when she literally can become invisible. It is only because Prince Tarin can't see and compare her to Gabriella that Doshi relaxes enough so that her sexuality and personality comes pouring out. Prince Tarin is a kind and intelligent man who is willing to marry a woman who, in all likelihood, will cheat on him because the marriage will benefit his kingdom. But when he finds himself falling for a woman he can't even see, will he choose his heart's desire over his duty? Will Gabriella finally get her comeuppance?

A fairytale premise for every woman who has ever felt overlooked and a story that proves that invisibility is the better power, check out THE INVISIBLE ROSE by A.J. Cove.
