Interview with Lucy Score, author of The Price of Scandal

02 Oct 2019

What can you tell us about your new release, The Price of Scandal?

It’s hot and hilarious! The Price of Scandal is a female billionaire romantic comedy with a badass, science nerd mogul heroine, a swoony crisis-managing hero, a free-range St. Bernard, drag queen brunch, and all the fun and heat of Miami.

It’s the first of the four Bluewater Billionaires books written by my talented, beautiful, hilarious author pals Claire Kingsley, Kathryn Nolan, and Pippa Grant. Four female billionaires written by four contemporary romance authors!

What books are currently on your nightstand?

Right this second I’m reading Maya Hughes’ Shameless King and Michael Connelly’s The Burning Room.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Be who you are, not who you think others want you to be. Also, buy better hairspray and wear more sunscreen.

If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?

I should say writing, but I’d definitely spend those sixty minutes reading!

What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?

Besides tacos and romance novels? Good people. I get to work with Mr. Lucy and every single day I also get to interact with a positive circle of author friends and amazing, generous readers. It’s such a supportive, happy community. It’s kind of the best thing ever.

What scene in The Price of Scandal was your favorite to write?

I have so many favorites in this book! But the whole story started with the “meetnude” scene when Emily comes home from a very bad day and finds a naked stranger in her tub. While she’s hurling insults at him and calling security, he’s suavely promising to make all her problems go away… and drinking her scotch. Every time Emily and Derek are on the page together, the ereader screen starts to steam up.

Then there’s the drag queen brunch when our four, female billionaire BFFs are eavesdropping on the table full of romance novelists plotting books next to them. I was snort-laughing out loud writing that scene.
