Blurb: He wears his scars on the outside. She keeps hers safe inside.
Charlotte Dixon ignores her stepmother’s edict and, in an act of disobedience, attends one of the social events of the year—a masquerade costume ball. Charlotte’s naughtiness escalates when she dances and smooches with a sexy mystery man. The night of anonymous passion that follows makes her yearn for a different life, but the next day she’s back to her dull routine of household management.
Advertising tycoon, Ash Marlborough is about to set a private investigator on the trail of his nameless princess when she waltzes right into his place of work. Charlotte is shocked to meet her masked man in the flesh, and even more perturbed when he asks her out on a date. Despite craving another night of sexy loving, she doesn’t have time for a man, not when she wants to reinvent herself and grasp a new, improved life with both hands. But Ash knows what he wants, and he’s determined to win the heart of his princess. Let the dance of seduction commence.
Warning: Contains a conniving stepmother, selfish stepsisters, a grandmother with fairy godmother tendencies and a sexy masked man who is willing to face them all for the love of a good woman.
Thoughts: “Do you think it’s possible to die from sexual frustration?”
Don’t let the old Cinderella fairytale ideal fool you – this a great story with scorching sex, and a real page turner. Other than the whole step-family, the happily ever after, and them treating her like a slave, it really doesn’t hold to much with the old tale. It doesn’t detract from the story at all. In fact, I doubt you’ve read an old fairytale that singes the pages as much as this one did! And I loved Charlotte’s Gran, she really made the story!
The story was HOT, sexy, sweet, sensitive, and overall wonderful!
