Synopsis Of Hallmark Channel’s My Summer Prince
Prince Colin is next in line to inherit the throne but jeopardizes it all after he is arrested for taking a bath in a public fountain. No stranger to controversy, Prince Colin’s mother believes that her son is giving the noble family a bad name and needs to be whipped into shape.
Bringing in a top notch PR executive will do the job. The only problem is PR head honcho Deidre has fallen ill and needs her assistant, Mandy, to take over the project.
Mandy is excellent at following instructions, but Deidre needs her to think like a PR head and not like an assistant. This is Mandy’s first real assignment, and she is determined to put together a campaign that will not only restore the reputation of His Royal Highness but also put her in line to becoming the next top public relations expert.
However, when Mandy arrives to meet Prince Colin, they mistake her for Deidre, her boss. Now, she is too afraid to tell them the truth. But for now, she has work to do even though Prince Colin doesn’t believe that he needs her services. Taking charge, Mandy, aka Deidre, lets the prince know that she is the one in control and that he will do exactly as he is told.
For Prince Colin, her bold strength is a turn on, causing him to pursue her romantically. Soon, Mandy finds herself loving a prince with the possibility of being next in line to be crowned “Princess” Colin.
