After six years as a private investigator, Stacey Alexander has the strangest day of her life when she falls down a hollow tree and meets her new client, a nutty old dude with a crown who thinks he's a king.

She'd climb right out of there, except that the crazy dude wants her to find his missing son, the Prince. And that is one hot-looking male. She'd be crazy herself not to take this case.
