About Kiki Astor’s new Book, Stick and Ball


Ashley Miller left behind her horse farm in Montana to escape her violent, controlling husband, and took a Greyhound bus to paradise. But she’s an inexperienced country girl- not equipped for the kind of games people play in the wealthy enclave of Montecito, California. Soon, Ashley meets Prince Charming. But he’s a hot to trot Argentine polo champion who is by all accounts a player- in both senses of the word. Could Ashley be blamed for deciding to play it safe with another guy, one who seems like a real gentleman? Too bad he’s an actual prince. Too bad he’s married. Too bad Ashley doesn’t realize that- until it’s too late.
