*Included in the Royally Mine Anthology
I was just a servant to the royal family, a no one in the grand scheme of things. But my heart belonged to Prince Lennon, the somewhat “Black Sheep” of the family. I didn’t care what others said, or how his reputation for being less than caring about tradition followed him.
I saw the same emptiness in him as I had in myself. I wanted to ease him, let him know that we were meant to be together.
But I would never be seen as anything more than the help.
One day I’d have the nerve to admit how I felt, even if it ended up blowing up in my face.
She thought I didn’t notice her, that she was just a royal servant.
She was wrong.
I didn’t care if it was frowned upon that royalty mixed with a commoner. I didn’t care what the tabloids or my family might say. I wanted Daisy more than I’d ever wanted anything or anyone before.
Just being in her presence made the loneliness in me lessen, made me want more than the jewels and riches that surrounded me. Being with Daisy would complete me, and I’d have her.
I just needed to make her see we belonged together.
Warning: If you want a short and sugary (but still oh so dirty) story, buckle up because this one packs a punch. It hits you right where it counts (wink-wink) and doesn’t let up until you get to the Happily Ever After at the end.

If You Were Mine was originally in the Royally Mine anthology but has since been released on its own. Snow once again captivates us with her beautifully written characters and an insta-love story that we can all find ourselves wishing to be a part of. This is not the usual hot and steamy alpha male that I am used to coming from Snow, but this sweet and dominating change is definitely something I can get used to.
Lennon is the Prince of Hemingway Court and second in line to the throne. Daisy is a servant that has worked for the royal family for a few years and has been in love with Lennon for as long as she can remember. What she does not know is that Lennon is desperately in love with her as well. When Lennon overhears another servant making plans with Daisy to hang out together at a local bar he decides it’s time to make a move. What he sees when he gets there sets these two on a colliding path toward their happily ever after.
