Miss Kate Daltry doesn't believe in fairy tales . . . or happily ever after. Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince and decides he's anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman--a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions. Gabriel likes his fiancée, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him. Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after --unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble --unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune --unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

There were things I really liked about this book and things I didn't like so much. The heroine was awesome. I loved her story. She drew me in right away. I loved all the chapters that featured her. The hero was the problem in this book. It took me a long time to care about him. I kept skimming his chapters, to return to the star of the book. As a result, the romance kind of felt a little flat to me. It was a version of the "Cinderella" story, but it felt kind of shallow. However, it was a quick, fun read. I would recommend it, especially for fairy tale aficionados.

Nice detail and enjoyable read. Was very predictable 'fairytale' but extremely captivating and great realistic romance nevertheless
