Getting clean ain’t easy…even for a princess.
If you’re a princess, most likely your fairy godmother warned you about messengers bearing big, red shiny apples.
Who can forget Snow White…
But in the end she found her prince after eating the poisoned apple.
Sometimes princesses are influenced by the wrong people. Take Princess Violetta in ROYAL DARE. She was desperate to be thin and win her crush…but it led her into drug addiction. Her poison apple.
This month I tackle a serious subject in ROYAL DARE (The Royals of Monterra, Kindle Worlds).
Addiction to drugs is a major problem — not just for the addict but for those in their world. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to go to rehab, or what happens afterward, Royal Dare takes you into that world.
Even though my heroine is a princess, she’s not immune to the horrors of meth and how difficult it is to get clean.
Princess Violetta meets some interesting people in rehab and hears the story about an old cloth doll and how she helped an addict face her demons. There are funny moments, too, like seeing our princess with a toilet brush cleaning bathrooms, and tearful ones–when a girl who is a “cutter” and addict calls the hotline manned by our princess threatening to kill herself and Violetta is the only one who can save her.
Royal Dare is for anyone who is an addict and wants help, and for those who love them.
Thank you for listening.
Born a princess, Violetta of Monterra is living the fairy tale. She has everything she wants. Designer purses and shoes, a party lifestyle and sheâ€™s as thin as a smartphone.
Sheâ€™s also a meth addict.
If she doesnâ€™t get clean, sheâ€™ll lose everything. Her title, her family. Her soul.
Learning how to survive in rehab is only the first step to gaining her sobriety. Once she finishes the program, the real challenge comes when Violetta goes back to her fancy Swiss boarding school. His name is Chace. Her first crush . . . and the guy who got her hooked on meth. Trusting him wonâ€™t keep her sober.
Then thereâ€™s Troy, the new hottie in school. Can he save her from relapse? And from losing everything precious to her before she goes down that rabbit hole for the last time?
