Music Fit for a Princess by Jessica E Subject


Thank you to the ladies of Literary Lagniappe for having me back. It’s always a pleasure to be here.

With the majority of my stories, I create a playlist with music that relates to my characters, settings, and even specific scenes in the story.

I had a lot of fun creating the playlist for The Star Princess, choosing songs I didn’t have on previous playlists, and purchasing songs I knew I needed for inspiration.

Here’s 10 songs from my playlist for The Star Princess:

Before You by Chantal Kreviazuk

Castle in the Sky by DJ Satomi

Closer by Tegan and Sara

Kiss You Inside Out by Hedley

Safe and Sound by Capital Cities

To You I Belong by B*Witched

Two Princes by Spin Doctors

We Found Love by Rihanna

What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger) by Kelly Clarkson

You Found Me by Kelly Clarkson


Here’s an excerpt that reminds me of the song Two Princes, when Ro’sa first sees her betrothed…

As a figure stepped from the shuttle, Ro’sa gasped at the same time as her friend. The prince. He had to be her betrothed, with the crown of gold on his head reflecting the sunlight. His hair cascaded to his shoulders in dark-brown waves, skin the same rich color of chocolate, her favorite treat from Earth. He wore a finely pressed black suit with a white shirt underneath. His plush cape reached the floor behind him. Pausing on the platform, he smiled, dimples forming in his cheeks.

Thank you, Earth! Excitement bubbled from deep inside her, and something more. She squeezed her thighs together and swallowed her own squeal to keep from giving away their location.

“He’s gorgeous,” Ka’lyn whispered. “Even the color of his skin is sexy. I wonder what he tastes like.”

Ro’sa shoved her friend. “None of your business. He’s mine.”

“And I’m so jealous.” Ka’lyn returned the punch. “I want to lick him from head to toe.”

So did she. “Don’t even think about it. You already have your own man.”

“Yes, but I can dream, can’t I? I mean, I love my sweaty woodsman, but, some days, I wish he was a prince.”

Before Ro’sa had a chance to respond, another man stepped out of the shuttle and slapped the prince’s on the back.

Ka’lyn shifted beside her. “Who’s that?”

“His personal servant?” She’d been told the prince would arrive with his own entourage. “Maybe a friend?” Would a servant be allowed to touch royalty? On Minjet, yes, but she’d been told the line between royalty and commoners was much more defined on Earth. At least before the last war.

“He’s cute, too. A stronger jaw, and look at those full lips. Imagine what they’d be like to kiss, how they’d feel on your breasts and between your legs.”

“Would you stop!” Ro’sa covered her mouth. Her words had come out much louder than she’d intended as she focused on the images her friend had planted in her head.

Book Blurb:


In one week, Princess Ro’sa will board a spaceship, leaving her home on Minjet to be with her betrothed on Earth. The only problem is, she detests the prince’s selfish and arrogant ways, preferring to spend time with his personal aide, a man who stirs her desires in ways she never imagined possible with his radiant blue eyes and smouldering lips. And oh, the way he touches her.

Earth’s post-apocalyptic landscape offers little but the alliance offers much and a princess must do her duty, no matter the danger to her person and to her heart.
