This classic Cinderella-type story is a cute, fun historical romance that keeps readers believing in fairy tales. Anthony Hurst is everything a woman could ask for in a Prince Charming really a man who is set on finding his dream woman no matter what the consequence. Isabella is a little tame compared to the heroines I usually prefer but she is lovely non-the-less and I enjoyed her interactions with Anthony. The sweetness of their connection made for a very enjoyable read and the pace of the story is perfect. Sophie Barnes kicks off a charming new series with this book and I’m looking forward to reading the entire series. I’m looking forward to reading other adventures happen at the Kingsborough Ball. I’m a sucker for masquerades and the magic and promise that always seem to come along with them.
