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?

My Review:
OMG OMG!!! This book was such a delight to read, I and many others read books with open minds. But man this one has its ROTFL (Rolling On The Floor Laughing), frightening moments and very gushing aww moments. I was loving on it.

Lucy has lost her job as a cocktail waitress when she dumped a pitcher of margaritas on a friend of the new boss. But you will not believe the job she just GOT!!!!!!!!!!! It is way better than Dog on a stick, it was advertised as personal assistant, and she was a bit leery, but when the interview was at the penthouse of a really upscale hotel, she thought she would go for it. Sometime later she was on a plane alone heading for a tiny kingdom in Europe dressed to the nines and impersonating minor royalty. Maybe she fibbed a little when she assured them that she could handle anything that was thrown her way, but after all there was a reason her family called her Lucy instead of Lucille.

She thought the hot jerk who acted like he knew her was a problem until the plane landed to a marching band,a horse and carriage, and a real prince with an engagement ring. And the jerk really wasn't such a jerk after all, well maybe?

My Rating:
