Publisher's Summary

Happily Ever After...Or Happily Nevermore?

Gisela's childhood was filled with laughter and visits from nobles such as the duke and his young son. But since her father's death, each day has been filled with nothing but servitude to her stepmother. So when Gisela learns the duke's son, Valten - the boy she has daydreamed about for years - is throwing a ball in hopes of finding a wife, she vows to find a way to attend, even if it's only for a taste of a life she'll never have.

To her surprise, she catches Valten's eye. Though he is rough around the edges, Gisela finds Valten has completely captured her heart. But other forces are bent on keeping the two from falling further in love, putting Gisela in more danger than she ever imagined.

    "Amazing!!"

    I absolutely loved this book! While I accidentally started the series in the middle it has only made me want to go back to the first book to listen to the series in its entirety. The author wrote a splendid retelling of Cinderella with a perfect balance action, adventure, and innocent romance! While parts of the story seemed rushed and cheesy the overall feeling of the story was nothing short of classic fairytale for me. I definitely encourage anyone who enjoys fairytales and romance to give it a shot!

    Story
    "Fairytale romance with a real world feel."

    I really liked this take on the Cinderella story. Much more plausible and the faith element would be a real thing for people that lived in that time and place. Well written

    Story
    "Read so fast I could not get through the first 10 minutes."

    This story sounds like a great one, but the reader is speaking so quickly it's hard to follow and gives me jitters.

    "Love"

    Story was great as usual from Melanie Dickerson, but this was the best work by narrator Jude Mason I have heard so far.
