This Cinderella is something of a geek girl - a shy, bespectacled historian, who likes nothing better than delving into dusty old records. Nike, the totally studly Prince of recently liberated Dargentia (think Monaco, a postage-sized kingdom that had been previously absorbed/claimed by Germany and France) has hired Paige to create a brochure that will lure tourists to Dargentia in time for (of course) the ball at which he will choose a royal bride.
Problem A: in lieu of finding Les Fabuleaux, the long-hidden crown jewels, Niko is in hock up to his princely eyebrows, so his PLAN is to choose a royal bride with more cash than flash. However, Dargentian legends state that the kingdom will come to ruin if the price does not marry a commoner.
Problem B: As they work together to save the kingdom, Niko is falling for Paige, a commoner, but is she just a gold-digger out to bag a Prince? And what good would it do to go with his heart if it sends the kingdom into financial ruin?
Problem C: Paige isn't sure she isn't a little bit crazy. Either she has a fairy godmother, who has been trying to "help" her since she was a teenager, OR she is out of her mind. And if she accepts Millicent's help to make her "scintillating" and attractive to Niko, isn't that like cheating? (Note: the word "scintillating" appears so often that if it was a drinking game, I'd be hammered.)
Some nice steam, a very posh ball, complete with Paige glammed up as Princess Eleanora, a dramatic ending where bread saves the day, and, of course, a Happily Ever After.
