And—a Happily-Ever-After Ending (Just not the way you expected it!)

Lucy Trabbicio’s a down-on-her-luck, young, American, former biker-bar cocktail waitress desperate to find a job. Lady Elizabeth Billingsley hires Lucy to travel to Fredonia, the tiny jewel of a country in the Alps, for ten days ‘tops’ to impersonate her.
Say what? How the heck is that going to happen?
In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth’s people teach Lucy how to dress, walk, talk, eat, be coiffed and even get naked like a European Lady.
The goal?
To keep Crown Prince Cristoph Timmel interested in Elizabeth until she finishes her unexpected, pressing personal business in the States.
But fate intervenes… Lucy meets and is wildly attracted to sexy, bad-boy Nick on the oh-so-long flights to Fredonia. Unfortunately for Lucy—Nick and Elizabeth have a hot sexual history, which Nick wants to immediately resume.
Prince Cristoph proposes marriage. What’s an imposter girl to do? Elizabeth insists that she’ll make it back home in time for the wedding. Lucy accepts Cristoph’s proposal and is on the fast track to becoming a Princess but continues to fall for the wrong Prince of Fredonia—Nick. When another tiny glitch arises—someone’s trying to kill her.
The only folks helping Lucy are her wild, party hard, take-no-prisoners Ladies-in-Waiting.
When the real Lady Elizabeth decides she’s not marrying Cristoph and never returning to Fredonia, Lucy’s faced with an uncomfortable decision—continue her deception, marry the prince she’s not in love with and live a dream life albeit without Nick, her dream guy? Or tell the truth and return to poverty and oblivion?
A modern day sexy fairy tale with romance, twists and turns, LOL moments, a few tears and an empowering ending.


Pros and Cons of being a Princess


Pamela DuMond

Oh gosh there are so many pros and cons of being a Princess.


  • Someone will help you with your hair and makeup.
  • You’ll probably score a tiara and some royal bling.
  • You probably won’t have to drive your own car in rotten traffic.
  • You probably won’t have to take your car to the carwash, a smog check, or even an oil change.
  • No need to flip off someone who cuts you off in traffic.
  • Someone will coach you on how to take a decent picture.
  • You’ll be drinking some primo bubbly and booze.
  • You most likely have a private screening room for to watch movies and TV shows before they are released to the public.
  • Most of your food will be top notch.
  • Charities! You can make appearances to support approved charities and make a difference in someone’s life as well as the world.
  • You get to have Ladies-in-Waiting!
  • Hopefully you fall in love with a handsome prince.


  • Bye-bye privacy.
  • Paparazzi – Blech.
  • Wardrobe malfunctions: how many times has Duchess Kate had photos taken of her behind when her skirt flew up during a windy day?
  • Stuffy, boring state dinners.
  • You’ll have to be more conscious about censoring words before they trip out of your mouth.
  • God forbid you trip and fall in public. It will most likely be captured for the world to see.
  • Gossip sites will constantly speculate that you are sporting a baby bump when you simply ate too much pizza.
  • One of your ‘fake friends’ will upload a photo of you doing something stupid on Instagram.
  • Chances are you’ll become more conscious of things like pimples and gaining weight.
  • Your ‘handlers’ will most likely insist you walk in high heels and perhaps wear odd hats.
  • If you’re born into a royal family you’re going to have to worry about who wants to date you and why.
  • If you marry into a royal family you’re going to have to hope your husband’s not cheating with his former (cough) girlfriend behind your back or even a pretty maid.
  • Groveling. You’ll have to grovel and suck up to the King and Queen.
  • You’ll have to attend a fair share of incredibly boring royal functions.
  • People will complain about everything you do or don’t do.
  • Until you pop out a royal heir, the press will constantly speculate about when you will pop out a royal heir.
  • Possible assassination attempts.
