How to Net a Prince – Where did the Heroine come from?

Hello everyone…so glad you stopped by. I’m Kay Dee Royal, a Muse It HOT erotic romance author, sharing how I came up with the heroine for How To Net a Prince - sometimes a story-star develops out of the strangest situations/events…like this one did. See what you think…

Where did the heroine come from for How to New a Prince?

I read the guidelines for this series and really wanted to contribute a story, a fun erotic romance genie story, but struggled coming up with a plausible heroine. I wanted someone who not only wanted to change their life, but also wanted a new relationship—who better to make a wish with a genie, and for *grins* a prince charming…and then it happened…

I stopped into a grocery store for a few things. It was a slow night, not many customers. When I went to check out, the clerk looked upset, distracted, and she had a bruise by her eye. She looked to be around fortyish.

I asked if she was okay and with tears in her eyes she told me about her cheating, abusive husband. At that moment another woman clerk walked over and I overheard their conversation…she wanted the abused woman to stay with her until the husband was out of the house. They made a pact so the abused woman would be safe.

That’s all it took…and Netta was born *smiles*

Netta’s emotionally broken, lonely, and ready to move forward, but how?

Gallant loves life, but wants someone to share it with, when?

Stars align once Netta walks into Lacey’s Lamp and makes a wish…


“Why Lacey’s Lamp?” I asked.

          “Because I’m Lacey, a genie,” she said, and then waved her arms, encompassing the whole room, “and this is my lamp. I can grant you any wish.”

          I chuckled, but Lacey remained serious. So, I pulled myself together and introduced myself, “I’m Netta, it’s nice to meet you.”

Lacey’s brows gathered as if in thought. It became a lengthy uncomfortable moment as she stood across the bar from me, mixing a drink. “Tell me about it, woman to woman.” Lacey handed me the tall, frosty glass filled with swirling shades of orange and green. “First one’s on the house.” Her brows arched and her head tilted as if she waited for me to take a drink.

          I took a quick sip from the skinny straw and words began spilling out, all about Nick, how I failed, how I was lonely, and how I felt afraid. A couple of hours I spewed, until I finally said, “I wish for a man who loves me just the way I am. Who thinks I’m amazing, who rocks my world and believes I’m the only woman in his.”

          “So, in other words, you’re more or less looking for a devoted, good looking man, who loves you. A real prince charming, am I right?”

          “Yeah, do you think you could order up a tall, dark, and handsome one of those for take-out?”

“Your wish is my command.” She winked at me and walked away.
