Synopsis:One Prince Finds True Love ... And Risks It All
Elle Cynder has fallen hard for Alec, the 'prince' of Le Charme Jewelers. Time for some happily in their ever after, right?
Not so much.
While the new couple shares joyful moments--and sizzling kisses--serious trouble is brewing. Elle's evil stepmother, Marchesa, schemes with none other than Alec's twisted father, Legend. Their plan? Destroy Elle and Alec, along with everything the young lovers hold dear, including Bry, Knox, and Wilhelm.
Another Royal Freezes His Heart ... But For How Long?
As a prince of the dark fae, Jacoby focuses on one goal: avoid assassination. Marrying Elle would certainly aid in that cause, considering how she's both a Cinderella life template and a powerful fae warden. Even better, Jacoby doesn't truly love Elle. In court life, deep romantic attachments only mean certain death.
Then Jacoby notices Elle's youngest stepsister, Agatha.
For the first time in his life, Jacoby's cold heart warms with true affection. The elven prince struggles to ignore his feelings, but it might be a losing battle. And what would the prince's newfound emotions mean for Elle and Alec? Could Jacoby really stand by and watch another's true love be destroyed?

REVIEW By VICKIE!
Another great fantasy by Ms. Bauer. I enjoyed this story with Alec, Elle, Jacoby and Agatha. I love the spells they are able to do. I also think Skye, the Genie is a fun character. They all have their own agendas and it's great to watch them all play out.
The characters are all well-developed and it is easy to feel their emotions.
The story flows well from chapter to chapter and is easy to follow along.
I recommend this story to readers who like fantasy, fairies and other mystical characters.
I give this story a literary rating of 5/5
