One Prince Finds True Love … And Risks It All

Elle Cynder has fallen hard for Alec, the ‘prince’ of Le Charme Jewelers. Time for some happily in their ever after, right?

Not so much.

While the new couple shares joyful moments–and sizzling kisses–serious trouble is brewing. Elle’s evil stepmother, Marchesa, schemes with none other than Alec’s twisted father, Legend. Their plan? Destroy Elle and Alec, along with everything the young lovers hold dear, including Bry, Knox, and Wilhelm.

Another Royal Freezes His Heart … But For How Long?

As a prince of the dark fae, Jacoby focuses on one goal: avoid assassination. Marrying Elle would certainly aid in that cause, considering how she’s both a Cinderella life template and a powerful fae warden. Even better, Jacoby doesn’t truly love Elle. In court life, deep romantic attachments only mean certain death.

Then Jacoby notices Elle’s youngest stepsister, Agatha.

For the first time in his life, Jacoby’s cold heart warms with true affection. The elven prince struggles to ignore his feelings, but it might be a losing battle. And what would the prince’s newfound emotions mean for Elle and Alec? Could Jacoby really stand by and watch another’s true love be destroyed?

Buckle up for a wild ride as Cinderella’s time-honored story gets some all-new twists.

The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . BANDITS AND BALL GOWNS (Fairy Tales of the Magicorum, #5) . . . To say this was a new twist on Cinderella's tale would be putting things mildly. This was everything I could have hoped for with being a fan of the series. Things were not predictable at every turn. There were a few but much of it came at you with a new spin to it. This had me loving it that much more. And then the second thing that made me love it was it was one that I could share with my teen daughter and her friends. The friends. The foes. The love. The likes. The backstabbing. The selfish. 

There are many things going on here. No. It is not so many that you can not follow along and enjoy it all. It is just that there will not be a dull moment while each page turns and each chapter wizzes by. 

Elle and Alec, of course love them, but it was Jacoby that stole my attention. I was wrapped up in finding out what he was going to do or not do. Would he really destroy to make things better for himself? Was he really selfish and destructive? Will the youngest step-sister, Agatha, be that salve needed to sooth a potential future beast?

The blurb said it all this was Cinderella's story with all new twist. The ride on this journey was well worth it.
