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.

Ew. Just ew. I hated this book. The good news is I got it very cheap, the bad news in the words of the great Gordon Ramsay it sucked Donkey’s balls. To sum up this book you could make a drinking game whenever any of the following things are mentioned/happened: 1)Kate tells us how she’s so...
This is a retelling of the Cinderella story, and is on sale for $2.99 (kindle), so I picked it up. I'm always entertained by fairy-tale trope romances, so I'm glad I read this, but it wasn't enough to get me out of my historical romance slump. Kate is the granddaughter of an Earl, but when her mot...
A Kiss At Midnight is the first book in the Fairy Tale series that this amazing author has created for us. Now I have read most of the books in the series and have adored each and every one of them. I do have a weakness for the fairy tale theme, especially in the regency genre. For some reason, I ha...
This was the first book I have ever read by Eloisa James and it will not be my last! I picked this book of mostly because of the beautiful cover. But the promises of a fairy tale retelling had me intrigued as well! ^_~ The story begins with Kate (Cinderella), Victoria (The not-so-wicked ste...
