And of course every Cinderella story needs a Prince. Nick, the crown prince of Santadorra has been living in England since the death of his Mother and has a somewhat polite relationship with his father. As a result of being so young and unable to prevent his mother's death that he develops this hero complex. He believes he must save any person with in his reach or power.
It is on this premise that the book opens up with the two meeting. Lucy manages to knock Nick unconscious with the gate door as she tries to slip into the garden of her neighbor and get the men who are pursuing her off her tail.
This meeting results in a sort of 'love at first sight' situation and some comedy of errors to follow as she mistakes him for a gardener and he mistakes her for a common maid.
Neither character was super-human but very real and passionate. I liked how both Lucy and Nick had to struggle with their personal beliefs before they could ever make any true commitment to each other. And Yes Lucy was beautiful but in this book you felt her inner beauty far surpassed her physical beauty...and quite frankly it was the same with Nick... These two were so meant for each other, how could you not have a happy ending...?
Beth I think your first book ROCKS! And I look forward to the next. You definitely have a very promising career ahead of you!
Lucy does not want Nick's involvement in her troubles, but he cannot help but intercede when two thugs accost her. Crispin sees the whole thing from his hiding place and realizes that neither aristocrat knows that the other is also part of the nobility. Unable to resist matchmaking, Crispin decides the hero and lady needing rescue are perfect for his machinations.
This adult Regency version of Cinderella is an amusing historical due to the antics of the cast including a precocious pug. The humorous plot employs an undertone of serious issues debated between Lucy (women's suffrage) and Nick (the Locke monarchy contract). Beth Petrillo debuts with a wild, wacky, witty winner that hopefully will have a follow-up perhaps in 1850 Santadorra where women vote and the son of the this lead couple is a thirtyish prince.

Interesting and charming no pun intended. You can relate to the characters as the truth of the old Cinderella story unfolds. Still love the story no matter how it's told.Published on August 21, 2013 by Carol Weleski
Strangely enough, I don't normally read Regencies. But for some reason I was drawn to this Cinderella story. And it was funny and wonderful and heart wrenching in points. Read morePublished on August 19, 2013 by Trish
A perfectly charming regency romance. This starts off feeling a little like Cinderella with an orphaned daughter of a duke who is mistreated by her step-mother and step-sisters... Read morePublished on June 30, 2013 by Gina Kelly
