Miss Kate Daltry doesn’t believe in fairy tales . . .or happily ever after.
Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince . . . and decides he’s anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman—a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions.
Gabriel likes his fiancée, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn’t love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him.
Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after.
Unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble . . .
Unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune . . .
Unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

Truly splendid, this novel has a bit of everything, including some very good laughs
Wonderful version of Cinderella!!!!
It starts a little slow. I was worried it was going to be badly written, but after the first few chapters I could hardly wait for real life to get out of the way so I could read what happened next.
There are truly laugh out loud moments and almost all the supporting characters are so lovable you want to adopt them yourself.
This my absolute favorite take on the Cinderella story. You won't be disappointed.
Best Eloisa James I've read - A+
While Eloisa James is hit or miss for me, this story was a big hit and one of the best historical romances I've read in a long time. Loved the characters, the plot, the humor. This book is not to be missed!
