She stopped at nothing. To get everything.

Scheming social climber Alexa may be humbly born. But she's a class-hopping cruise missile aimed at the very top of the gold-digging tree. Only a title, mansion and family tiara will do. Befriending feckless aristo Florrie (three surnames plus black hole where her brain should be) means the grandest doors swing open and the prince of her dreams is in sight.

But has Florrie's mother, the formidable Lady Annabel, rumbled what Alexa is up to? Beautiful but penniless student Polly, meanwhile, is in love. Is Max, the handsome young vet she's found in a country lane, quite as ordinary as he seems, however?

Passionate love, eye-widening snobbery and more than naked ambition abound in this contemporary Cinderella tale - a deliciously satirical novel of the upwardly mobile.

From Publishers Weekly

18 June 2012 – In this scathingly witty commentary on the perks and pitfalls of love among the British upper class, Holden (Gallery Girl) tells the tale of two childhood adversaries and the vastly different roads they travel in search of true love. Social climber Allison, who now calls herself Alexa, is a college dropout determined to bag a titled husband at any cost. Low-key archeologist Polly meets and falls in love with an appealing veterinary student named Max. After Alexa is outed in the British press as Heirfix ( Because you find a title and you stick to it like glue ), she sets her sights on the crown prince of Sedona, a Mediterranean principality abutting Monaco. Trouble is, said crown prince who has been training to be a veterinarian in Britain has already fallen hard for Polly, who doesn t know he s a prince. After Max s true identity is revealed, hijinks including run-ins with whimsically named characters ( Wharte-Hogge, for starters) and ill-timed snogging in the back of a Land Rover ensue. Will deceit triumph over true love? Readers will rush through this dishy chick lit tale to find the answer. A Cinderella story for the beach bag.
