USA Today Bestselling author, Pamela DuMond, pitched the real life Erin Brockovich story to 'Hollywood', where it became the smash hit movie.
Now she brings readers Part-Time Princess, a LOL Romantic Comedy, the first book in the hilarious LADIES-in-WAITING Series!
Two Princes are in love with Lucy. Too bad she's an imposter...
Lucy's a down-on-her luck cocktail waitress desperate to find a job to keep her beloved uncle at Assisted Living. Lady Elizabeth hires Lucy to impersonate her for "ten days tops", while she completes her pressing personal business in the States. The goal: keep Prince Cristoph of Fredonia's wandering eye in check until the real Elizabeth can return.
In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth's people transform Lucy into a reluctant 'Lady', and she travels to Fredonia for her top-secret job. What could possibly go wrong?
Sexy, bad-boy Prince Nicholas of Fredonia, Cristoph's younger brother -- that's what goes wrong!
Nick has a romantic history with the real Elizabeth and wants to pick up the action with her impersonator, Lucy. She's wildly attracted to him, but must resist--she can't lose this paycheck!
Elizabeth's wild, party hard, well-intentioned Ladies-in-Waiting take Lucy under their wing, and get her in more trouble. Dreamy Nick's courting her hot and heavy, but Prince Cristoph proposes marriage.
What's an imposter girl to do?
A modern day, sexy tale with romance, twists and turns, laughter, a few tears, and a Happily-Ever-After ending (just not the way you expected it!)
Part-Time Princess was featured in Glamour UK, October 2015.

Better Than Real
Lucy was my fave! She was so sweet and tried so hard to do what was right for everyone :)
I loved the wedding! It was way too funny :)
This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This is the first book. I can't wait.to listen to the next one!
Lucy is down on her luck. She has been struggling to take care of herself and her slightly mad uncle.since her parents died in a tragic motorcycle accident years ago. Her uncle never recovered from their loss. Working as a cocktail waitress doesn't exactly pay the bills and when she gets fired she is desperate to find a new job that pays well. Thanks job she found seems odd and too good to be true but if she wants to keep her uncle out of County she needs real money yesterday! How can she possibly pull off impersonating a Princess-In-Waiting? Will she fool the Crown Prince of Fredonia enough to make the switch with Lady Elizabeth at the proper time? Or will she bungle it all and lose her job and Elizabeth her crown?
Seeing Lizzie on the plane threw Nick for a loop. He wants things to go back to the way they were between them but she is playing dumb. He should leave her be. After all she is meant to wed the Crown Prince of Fredonia and save the country and the royal family! He is more and more drawn to her as time passes. Why does she seem so different than the last time he saw her? Can he forget her and do the right thing? Should he?
Christoph is ready to make this deal. His country needs the marriage contract fulfilled before they lose everything. Proposing on the tarmac to disastrous results only makes him more determined to get this done and over with. Lady Elizabeth, on the other hand, seems hesitant and very different. He finds himself.entranced by her. Will she say yes to his proposal? Will she consent to saving their country and someday becoming his Queen? How can this be the same girl who he has know his whole life?
***This romantic comedy of epic proportions is suitable for adult listeners (or readers) who enjoy a good comedy of errors with plenty of mystery, intrigue, action, adventure, an eccentric royal family, and an assassin or two all leading to an unexpected HEA :)
PART- TIME PRINCESS: LADIES-IN-WAITING BOOK 1 is laugh out loud funny. Full of quirky characters that you will adore, this is a not to miss story.
Lesley Ann Fogel does a fantastic job with the different voices and makes a great story a joyful experience to listen to.
If you're looking to tickle your funny bone, you should definitely give PART - TIME PRINCESS a try!
Pamela DuMond wrote a fun filled book and Lesley Ann Fogle's narration only added to the awesomeness of it all.
I was in the mood was a light read who was still engaging, intelligent , romantic ,satisfying and PtP was exactly that.
I wish more books like Part-time Princess were written.
Authors, please make Romantic Comedy the next best thing!
I loved the fact Pamela DuMond didnt use the trope of her down on her luck heroine who sells her virginity/joins an escort service to make money.
Instead, Lucy gets hired by Elizabeth to impersonate her & keep the attention of Crown Prince Cristoph of Fredonia.
You will need to read the book to find out what happens next.
Hint: EVERYTHING that could go wrong, does indeed go wrong.
PtP being a Romantic comedy, Lucy of course ends up falling for Nick (the "wrong" prince who is also charming).
I wasnt sure about them at first, because Nick had a prior relationship with Elizabeth, but Pamela's writing, Lesley's narration an Lucy's antics left no room for deep thoughts. PtP just sweeps you along for the ride and you go with it.
Lesley brought Pamela's characters to life.
The comic parts were spot on, as well as Nick's and Cristoph's portrayal.
In no point did I have to wonder who is talking because the distinction between them was evident in the speech pattern.
I enjoyed the book immensly.
I was laughing all through it (even while on the train on the way to work).
Buy the book, add the audio version.
It will be worth every penny and will reward you with hours of fun to light your day.
I absolutely loved the narrating by Lesley Ann Fogle, it turned a great book into a fun enjoyable story. This is such a refreshing entertaining book and I really enjoyed it so much I finished in one sitting. The characters are very well developed and likable, I really enjoyed Lucy she was fun. This is my first book by Pamela DeMond and it will not be my last, she is an amazing author.
I was given a copy of this audiobook, for my honest review.
Avid bookworm (who needs sleep?), also love to scrapbook, bake, Officiate Roller Derby, anything outdoors, and dabble in writing
The different voices Lesley performed really brought the characters to life, she did an excellent job with all of the accents!
I loved Nick, he was so clever and funny...never gave up fighting for the girl he loves.
It was hard at first to get used to the voice of Lucy, but after you take into account the fact that she's supposed to have a strong accent and slang words, you find yourself embracing her as if she was a close friend.
When the dog was being held hostage, I just wanted to get on a plane and go help Lucy! The writing and narration made you feel as though you're truly a part of the story.
Once you get started on this story, you're hooked! I found myself listening every chance I could, and just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, the author would throw me for a loop! Great read, and I can't wait for more in this series!
This is a snort out loud funny book. Not a high pitched Lucy laugh but a lot of laughs.
There were so many including teaching Lucy how to impersonate Elizabeth.
The end, this girls always loves a happily ever after.
I fell in love at the beginning with the flight. Sometimes it is love at first sight.
great job to the narrator
