A Cinderella Twist

Reading through all of the classic love stories like Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, and Beauty and the Beast (yes, the book), have you ever wondered what it would be like to live them? Experience the magic first hand?

Nicole Jordan has dreamed of exactly that, but on her own terms.

In the first novel of the Legendary Love series, Princess Charming, Jordan re-writes the story of Cinderella. The classic elements remain the same - however, a very different twist has been placed upon the unsuspecting characters.

Maura meets the requirements for playing Cinderella and Ash is definitely a Prince Charming, but the story is closer to reality, leaving out the fairies and magic wands.

The greatest thing about this novel is that Maura is the headstrong, do-it-yourself kind of girl that rejects the label "damsel in distress." Even if she may fall into the role on accident a few times... She's modern and self-sufficient, which doesn't sit well with all of her co-historical romance characters. But the inner fight and love of life burns through her being making Maura a wonderful character to get to know and connect with.

Honestly, I can't wait for the next installment in this series. :) And after you read this book, you'll feel the same way. Promise.
