The Prince - Jillian Dodd

Montrovia has no poverty, and all its hotels are 5-star. These are supposedly facts about the country, rather than demonstrations of the cluelessness of the book's disgustingly rich characters. Readers are also expected to believe that there may be socialist eco-terrorist elements (everyone is equal, abolish currency, etc.) in the country hoping to assassinate the prince.


And I'm pretty sure there's some sort of love triangle, but Huntley's "emotions" are written so oddly it's hard to tell. If a guy is even slightly emotional around her, her heart softens for him and she cares for him. But if he isn't physically near her, she at least 90% forgets about him.
