In a quest to find a bride, Prince Ruairidh stumbles upon The Light Princess, a completely inappropriate bride with an unbreakable spell upon her. He hears rumours that it was her aunt, Princess Makemnoit, who put the spell on her, but no one knows for certain. The Light Princess would make no one a suitable bride, least of all a prince. But when she’s in the lake there’s something about her that intrigues Prince Ruairidh and he can’t help wanting to spend more time with her.
