“Ella, wherever you are, if you’re out there listening, I love you. You are my entire world. You’ve always said you thought Cinder was a coward for doing what the people expected of him instead of following his heart. Well, I’m not a coward. This Prince Cinder chooses his Ellamara. I choose you, Ella, and I’m not going to let you be a coward, either. I’m not going to let my fame scare you away. We’re Cinder and Ella, woman! We’re supposed to get our fairy-tale ending!”

It’s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she’s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child.

If Ella wants to escape her father’s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she’s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she’s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who’s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder.

Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There’s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won’t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he’s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult.

In order to douse the flames on Brian’s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn’t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he’ll suffer through it if it means he’ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.

But when Elaina’s secret is compromised, she must return to land and live under the king’s protection...much to her objection. Ashland's crown prince, Nicholas, has never been without. He is, however, facing a possible civil war and a deadly foe who preys on his gifted citizens. So when he meets Elaina, Nicholas delights in insisting that she share her military expertise gained on her father’s ship. He gets more than he bargains for, though, when he finds that he might have fallen for the one girl who refuses to fall for his charms. Just as Elaina and Nicholas begin to realize they might need each other after all, a dark turn of events finds Elaina exiled and forced into servitude, a civil war declared, and the murderer bloodthirstier than ever.

Everything you’ve been told is wrong. Oh, not everything, I suppose. Yes, I turned a pumpkin into a coach and mice into horses. The stroke of midnight, the glass slippers, and the prince searching for a girl whose foot fit the shoe…those were all part of the story. And yet, the prince didn’t just fall in love with Cinderella because she looked good at the ball. Pigeon feathers and pollywogs!  Could you respect him if he did? I most certainly could not. No, no, there was vastly more that happened before the night of the ball, and a great deal of international intrigue after. Cinderella was a warrior who saved the life of the prince and defended her kingdom from oppressors who were plotting to overthrow the king. They didn’t tell you that part? It’s time, past time, for you to know the true story of the real Cinderella.

Catherine St. James is a librarian in the tourist town of Bandon, Oregon. She’s poor by the world’s standards, but she loves what she does and what she has is sufficient for her needs. She doesn’t want glass slippers, a grand ball, or Prince Charming. What she needs is a miracle, and she doesn’t know it yet, but she needs him.

Last summer, Catherine fell in love with Samuel Merrick. She believed what they had together was beyond marriage, beyond “till death do us part”. She thought it was the forever kind of love, and for eight perfect weeks, it was. Because of that, she made a mistake, one she can’t take back, and wouldn’t even if she could. Now she has her daughter and she loves her more than she ever thought possible. She also believes despite her mistake, God loves her and her child.

Billionaire oil tycoon Samuel Merrick has no idea he has a daughter. Thirteen months ago, when he came to Bandon, he fell in love with Catherine almost instantly. And that was a real surprise. After his wife died, he didn’t believe he would ever find love again. And when he realized what was happening, he knew he needed to make sure he was falling in love with Catherine for the right reasons. So he left. It was a mistake, a terrible one. He got scared, and didn’t handle the situation as he should have.

Now he wants to change that. He wants Catherine in his life. He wants to marry her, if she’ll have him. He knows it’s going to take work on his part and forgiveness on hers, but God willing, he believes they might be able to find their happily ever after.

When the vain and spoilt Lady Catherine Bowers is too ill to attend the Duke of Pemberton's masquerade ball, she forces her lady's maid Leonora to take her place. The beleaguered Leonora thinks it's a bad idea, but her mistress insists, for her name must be signed on the guestbook.

Everything seems to be going swimmingly until a disguised Leonora catches the eye of James Cordell, Sixth Duke of Pemberton. The darkly handsome aristocrat is smitten by the masked angel with the captivating brown eyes, and when she vanishes at midnight, he is determined to track her down and make her his bride.

His investigations lead Pemberton into deducing that the mysterious young woman from the ball can only be Lady Catherine Bowers, and so Leonora finds herself travelling with her mistress to the magnificent Pemberton Hall for a house party where the Duke intends to propose.

Will the Duke realise that his true love is living under his roof, but that she's not the lady he thinks she is?
