This Cinderella’s not at the ball to dance. He’s a prince in disguise searching for a magic pumpkin that might be the key to saving his parents and his kingdom.
Prince Asher’s task is simple.
Sneak into the Royal Ball of Glicien. Uncover the royal family’s closely guarded magic secrets. Then escape before anyone is the wiser.
But Ash didn’t plan on Princess Beatrix getting in his way at every turn.
Since tragedy drove her sisters into exile, Bea has striven to be the perfect daughter and heir. Now the king’s failing health leaves the kingdom vulnerable to political maneuvering. To protect Glicien and ease her dying father’s fears, Bea must choose a consort.
Unfortunately, only two men catch her attention.
The unsuitable and secretive gardener. And a masked nobleman who disappears from the ball after a single dance. When a magic heirloom goes missing, though, Bea discovers the two men are really the same person.
And he’s the thief.
Can Bea trust Ash to help her save her kingdom and her father? Or will he steal away with her heart and her family secrets to rescue his own parents from a cruel curse?
