I finished Gossip Girl: The Carlyles so then I read The Royal Treatment by MaryJanice Davidson. In the book, Russia never sold Alaska to the United States, so Alaska is it's own country. Christina Krabbe is in Alaska and she happens to be on the same boat as the king and he takes a liking to her. He invites her to stay at his castle and marry the crown prince. This book reminds me of The Princess Diaries. In both books a regular girl becomes a princess. Also, both girls have to go through a lot of training. They also both don't want to be a princess at first, but then warm up to the idea by the end. Finally, they both end up being queen.
