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.

The story starts when Lucy, a young hard-working American (perfectly ordinary), was fired from her job and was luckily employed by Elizabeth, who is coincidentally a real-life Princess. Lucy will have to be Elizabeth for 10 days. But then, days became weeks and weeks became months. What will happen next? Especially if Lucy learns that Elizabeth’s not returning to Fredonia. She will have to pick between two gorgeous Princes. I know right? What an unfortunate situation she’s in. Not. But I must agree that she needs to make a hard decision.

The only thing I disliked about this was the impersonation thing. It’s a bit tacky that Lucy and Elizabeth look so much alike (without any surgery and stuff) that Lucy was never suspected to be an impostor.

I absolutely adored Lucy Trabbicio. She didn’t automatically think of Nick’s physical appearance when they first met. She doesn’t judge a person by their looks. When she saw a gorgeous guy, she didn’t describe him as such. She described him as a pervert riding first class in British Airways. She was also hilarious. Her character flawlessly executed quirky scenes. It had me laughing at the right time. Also, there’s an invisible relationship between Lucy and Elizabeth. They were helping each other without really intending to.

The love triangle in this story has a historical/regency romance feel to it. She was promised to another man but fell in love with the other. The romance was just right. So right that it was difficult to pick between Nick and Cristoph. Good thing Lucy picked for us. Ha!

A modern day sexy fairy tale with romance  ,twists and turns, LOL moments, a few tears and an empowering ending. It sure is!

Readers of swoon romance, romantic comedy and modern day fairytale will surely love the first installment of the Ladies In Waiting series! Part-Time Princess is a perfect combination of Pamela’s take to Princess Diaries and Princess and The Pauper.
Can't wait for book two!

Pamela DuMond is the author who discovered Erin Brockovich’s life story, thought it would make a great movie and pitched it to ‘Hollywood’. 

She writes romantic comedic mysteries, romantic YA time travel and New Adult romance.

Her book The Story of You and Me was a Quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakout Novel Award (ABNA) 2014 in Romance.
Cupcakes, Pies, and Hot Guys was a Quarterfinalist in ABNA 2013 in Mystery .

She’s addicted to TV shows — The Voice and Reign. The movies Love Actually and The Bourne trilogy (with Matt Damon — not that other actor guy,) make her cry ever time she watches them. (Like — a thousand.)

When she’s not writing Pamela’s also a chiropractor and cat wrangler. She loves reading, the beach, working out, movies, TV, animals, her family and friends. She lives in Venice, California with her fur-babies.

She likes her coffee strong, her cabernet hearty, her chocolate dark, her foods non-GMO and she lives for a good giggle.
