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
Best Eloisa James I've read
Loved the story and characters. I am a big romance reader and generally give Ms. James a B+ (good writing though not always a very compelling plot. Fairy tale format has mixed results). I ranked this book an A, right up there with Julie Anne Long who writes consistently wonderful books.
