Product Description

“One of the best Cinderella stories I've ever read. Very easy reading and the characters touch your heart. Everyone loves laughs and a happy ending and this book has both!” 5 star review from grtgram on Amazon.com

What happens when a modern day Cinderella's dreams don't involve getting married?

Romance? Love? In this Once Upon A Romance Series Book 1 romantic comedy, Charlotte (Charlie) King doesn't have time for either one. All she wants is her late father's dream to come true by making his beloved King's Department Store thrive again. However, her stepmother has other ideas. Charlie agrees to help her stepmother find grooms for her sheltered stepsisters. In exchange, the stepmother will release her stronghold on the store's budget. After all, one good deed deserves another, right? But, Charlie has no idea what her heart's in for when...

Alexander (Alex) Royale, dubbed by society newspapers as Prince Charming, arrives for dinner to meet the all-female King family. His ailing grandparents yearn for his marriage and then the baby carriage. Well, that and running the family company. Having unsuccessfully searched for months, Alex doesn't hold out any hope in finding his future bride among the King sisters. However, all his expectations, including his idea of a business-like marriage of convenience, vanish the moment Charlie crashes into him.

When Alex sets out out to win over Charlotte, he has no idea he has to bargain with the stepmother, secretly buy the store, court Charlotte after the wedding, and, oh yeah, be featured in Charlie's new fairy tale ad campaign, The Charmings, based on them. Can a guy ever get a break?

The couple never factored in falling in love with each other. Now, faced with losing all their families ever wanted, Charlie and Alex must choose: Do they live their families' dreams or do they finally live their own?

This is the first book in the contemporary romantic comedy trilogy Once Upon a Romance

“I enjoyed this book from cover to cover. Looking for more books by this author.” 5 star review from Barbara A. Jones "bj" on Amazon.com

By Roroblu's Mum TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is vaguely reminiscent of Cinderella, but with a not-that-wicked Stepmother, with a not-really-Cinders Charlotte, and with her not-really-awful stepsisters, who towards the end of this tale, seemingly will end up getting their own.

To read this, you do totally have to suspend disbelief that this is a contemp tale, as there is no way a person in business would put sentiment over profitability and sink money into a sinking ship, pardon the pun, as Charlotte wanted to do. Apparently she was honouring a promise she'd made to her late father at age 9, some twenty years ago, to see their family store, King, stay around. Not profitable, not financially viable, but just still around.

So, as her wicked Stepmother (that's how the author uses the word, and how Charlotte addresses her), controls the purse strings, Charlotte ends up having to marry Prince Charming Royale, to keep the store afloat - or so she thinks...

The stepmother wasn't really wicked, she simply had the business acumen and plain old non-rose-tinted-spectacles common sense that Charlotte didn't, and didn't live in a fantasy world. Alex was rather bland and old fashioned a Prince Charming, but his intentions were good, though he had no business sense either. He and Charlotte ended up together, and without even one love scene, and barely one kiss, towards 85% gone, she announces that he's to be a father.

I'm afraid I left this tale there, as I couldn't continue to suspend disbelief enough to go on with it. It was well-written, but it was passionless, with a couple of air-heads who were totally suited to each other, and who must have been living in LaLa land; the description of their actions and interactions certainly weren't of modern day Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book I've Read For Ages! 23 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fantastic book. I was a bit oh.. when there was no intimate sex scenes but it actually works really well without them. I didn't miss them at all, the storyline was very imaginative and I sat here with a stupid grin on my face the whole time I was reading. Every book has a boring bit in it somewhere, not this one. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and of any age. The basic storyline is Cinderella and I thought the author was very clever with how they used this theme throughout the book. Off now to see what else they've written, can't wait!

1.0 out of 5 stars boring 10 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought the series of books after reading the reviews of how funny they were...
Have read the first one and can only say its boring and very predictable, only slightly amusing in places and that's me being kind...
What a duff lot.
