The Heir and the Spare by sleepyvalentina
Summary: My sister keeps telling me the media is way too hard on Prince Edward—that he isn’t an arrogant, self-entitled bastard and I’d like him if I got to know him. Right. The more time I spend with His Royal Heinous, the more I want him to leave me alone. But he won’t, and since the tabloids already think I’m sleeping with him, he might as well kiss me.
This WIP was rec’d in the comments a few weeks ago by theo8. Talk about life imitating art. Prince Harry’s recent, um, exposure in the press made me think of this story quite a few times. Not that Prince Edward had a naked party in Vegas, but he is the second born prince, has the rep of a playboy, and gets treated similarly by the British press. In reality, well, in the fic reality, Edward does not live up to his reputation. He also has some kind of secret with Bella’s sister who is engaged to his older brother. This story is very funny and makes me smile. Bella is so baffled by her attraction to Edward.
Edward just has no idea at all how to have an actual relationship. I don’t know how they are ever going to figure things out but I have a feeling they will.
