Listening In: Lucy Calls her Best Friend
Lucy is the heroine of my novel, Asteria: In Love with the Prince. I thought it might be fun to listen in as she talks to her best friend and man-eater Gwen about her new man, Prince Jagor. Lucy phones Gwen a few times in the book to ask advice (from the rooftop garden of a penthouse, from Monaco and from the palace) but I wrote this one especially for Belle’s Book Bag.


“It’s Lucy.”
“Mmn nmmmg-ang on...Sorry. Bagel. Hi, Luce. How’s his highness?”
“He took me to a casino.”
“A casino, in Monaco? Very James Bond. Wait, I need my hands.” Click.
“What do you mean, you need your hands?”
“The UN didn’t close down just because you ran off to Monaco with Prince Charming, you know. I have three speeches in three different languages to translate by the end of today. You called in my bagel break. I’ll have to eat while I console.”
“I don’t need consoling.”
“You usually need consoling.”
“I usually need advice, Gwen.”
“OK, what do you need advice on? Casinos? Double down on a hard eleven.”
“No, I—Actually, that would have been quite useful last night. He kept insisting I gamble. I think I lost about twenty thousand dollars.”
“I’m not surprised. You’re a librarian, not a gambler.”
“I’m a translator—“
“Who looks like a librarian. Anything else happen?”
“Luce? You’re doing one of your silences. What else happened?”
“Partway through the night, Jagor said he had a phone call, and he needed me to translate. So we borrowed the office of the guy who owns the casino, and the bodyguards waited outside.”
“They still don’t know that you’re—“
“No, they think I’m just his aide. I think his butler suspects.”
“OK, so what happened?”
“...There was no phone call.”
“Ohhh...tell me you did it up against the door!”
“On the desk.”
“On the desk?
“It was...not like the other times. Not kinky, just...really, really intense. Frantic. We’ve been sneaking around; being really careful. We...needed it, you know?”
“Mm-hmm. Barely time to get your panties off?”
“...he tore them off, actually.”
“Hmm. Taking what he wants already: and he hasn’t even made you his slave yet. Think what it’ll be like in Asteria.”
“I don’t know if I’m ready for that, Gwen. Being...owned.”
“I still say you’ll end up sold to some sheikh.”
“It’s not like that! In Asteria, it’s almost like marriage. The woman gives herself to the man. It’s kind of beautiful.”
“Is he brainwashing you?”
“I’m not saying I’m going to do it.”
“You’re not saying you’re not, either. Is it the real thing, with his highness?”
“Oh, that I’m sure about. Real as it gets. Heart going bing bang boom whenever he looks at me. Whole nine yards.”
“Well, then. You have a choice to make. Hey, tell me more about the sex—“ (Sound of coughing)
“Who was that?”
“Alice: she’s sitting next to me.”
Gwen! You put me on speaker?!
“I told you I needed my hands.”

Asteria - In Love with the Prince
His Lover

UN translator Lucy Snow sneaks into an embassy party and meets Prince Jagor, heir to the throne of the fabulously rich kingdom of Asteria. Their initial steamy kiss isn’t enough for the prince: he offers her a job as his personal aide and in the glamorous hotels and casinos of Monaco, they engage in a secret love affair.

His Slave
But in Asteria, women are 'owned' by their men, both in and out of the bedroom. Loving Jagor will mean accepting his collar...and his every command.
His Princess
Lucy must overcome the queen, the media and the will of the Asterian people if she's to be accepted as Jagor’s bride. And when the royal family is plunged into danger, Lucy must become stronger than she ever dreamed...
