Synopsis from Goodreads
He wears his scars on the outside. She keeps hers safe inside.
Charlotte Dixon ignores her stepmother’s edict and, in an act of disobedience, attends one of the social events of the year—a masquerade costume ball. Charlotte’s naughtiness escalates when she dances and smooches with a sexy mystery man. The night of anonymous passion that follows makes her yearn for a different life, but the next day she’s back to her dull routine of household management.
Advertising tycoon, Ash Marlborough is about to set a private investigator on the trail of his nameless princess when she waltzes right into his place of work. Charlotte is shocked to meet her masked man in the flesh, and even more perturbed when he asks her out on a date. Despite craving another night of sexy loving, she doesn’t have time for a man, not when she wants to reinvent herself and grasp a new, improved life with both hands. But Ash knows what he wants, and he’s determined to win the heart of his princess. Let the dance of seduction commence.
Warning: Contains a conniving stepmother, selfish stepsisters, a grandmother with fairy godmother tendencies and a sexy masked man who is willing to face them all for the love of a good woman.
This was a second chance for Shelly Munro’s books, I have only read one of her books once before and I was very disappointed in it. You can see the Review here. But I am so glad I gave this author a second chance, This book was everything I had hoped for and more and I could not put it down.
One night of misbehaviour is a light entertaining Cinderella story. Charlotte is put into a horrible position after the death of her father, when she is left with her wicked stepmother and wicked stepsisters. In return for board, Charlotte’s duties include looking after her sick and frail grandmother, and being a slave, giving up her happiness to try and keep peace for her grandmother. One night her grandmother and her friend, set up Charlotte to attend a party where she meets her prince charming. It is a beautiful romance, which really pulls on your heartstrings, you admire Charlotte for the sacrifices she is willing to make for her step-family as well as cursing her stupidity for those sacrifices for a family that are using her.
I absolutely loved this story and recommend it for anyone who wants a steamy, emotional, light read.
