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. 


>>> I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.<<< 

We follow the story of Lucy, a young girl who, in her need to find money, accepted the job that someone offered to her. Elizabeth is a young lady from a european country, who's currently at the States and needs someone, who looks like her, to impersonate her for a couple of days weeks. She needs Lucy in order to maintain Prince's Christoph interest on her, while she's still in USA. 

So, Lucy after a make over and lessons on how to behave like a real lady, gets on the plane and flies to Fredonia. During her flight, we meet Nick. A hot guy who flirts with her, implying that he'd been a lover to Elizabeth. Lucy hadn't heard about him, but we can see that she's attracted to him. Too bad that she's there to keep Christoph's interest on her Elizabeth. 

We meet the royal family, Elizabeth's family, her Ladies in Waiting & a couple of surprises on the way. One of them , the fact that someone is trying to kill Elizabeth Lucy.. 

This was a really fun read, even though let's face it. Lucy wasn't so good at impersonating Elizabeth.. Also, why didn't they warn her about Nick? Or other things that she was supposed to know, like the deal with the royal family? 

Also, I felt like the ending was really rushed. I could use a few more paragraphs with more details about the aftermath. What about Papa, Christoph, the financial state/ agreement with the royal family? I felt like these left unanswered and I don't know if we'll see more about it in the next books of the series, but I wouldn't mind having a few words about them in this one.

I really loved the characters of this book. They were funny, smart, sexy. Nick was one of my favorites, but I also loved the Ladies in the waiting, Lucy & mr. Phillips. It was a cute read that reminded me of fairytales and chick lit movies. 

PS: I think it would be wiser to read it without reading the description of the book, because in my opinion it spoils almost everything.

PS2: I love this cover ^_^
