Not Your Typical Fairy Tale Romance
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
An alluring love triangle and a daring caper unfold in this imaginative retelling of Cinderella, featuring an indomitable damsel who’s not so easily swept off her glass slippers.
At the tender age of seventeen, Ella Upton lost her innocence to a traveling minstrel, a youth with flaxen hair and a golden voice whose deep blue eyes concealed his true intentions—until it was too late. Seven years later, Ella’s stepsisters chatter about winning the affections of the dreamy Prince Florian at the royal ball, but Ella has no such illusions. Instead, her dashing best friend, Malcolm Hawkridge, persuades her with his reckless charm and wicked smile to use the occasion to steal back a magic orb from the corrupt king.
But before the clock strikes midnight, Ella finds herself pursued by more than one prince—not to mention Commander Horatio Crushington, who captures her with his piercing gaze from across the crowded ballroom. Dancing through the sudden swirl of suitors, Ella feels her cheeks burning—and not solely because of the orb hidden in her gown. Has the strapping Horatio awakened long-dormant desires or is Ella finally coming to grips with her feelings for Malcolm? Only the girl who thought she’d given up on love can decide.
Note: Disenchanted ends on a cliffhanger. Ella’s story continues in Charmless!
Praise for Disenchanted
“One of the best fairy-tale retellings of Cinderella I’ve read . . . vivid and rich, lush and three-dimensional . . . I was in love from the first page, and I can’t wait to read more!”—The Romance Reviews (top pick)
“Once the author wrapped me into the characters, I was a goner. You couldn’t pay me to put the book down.”—The Jeep Diva
Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Charming in every respect. Relying on the well-known aspects of the Cinderella story, Disenchanted charmingly weaves a creditable story that delights and frustrates at the same time. Sharp-witted Ella does everything right only to have it go disastrously wrong. Ultimately, the question she has to ask herself is, who really is her Prince Charming? Confusion worthy of the timeless 'Who's on First?', Ms Carroll weaves a story that keeps you guessing while chuckling under your breath. A great read.
