Blurb: Welcome to Lenvia, where the young prince has been given a year to choose a wife or have one chosen for him. Hoping for a desperate family to send an innocent into the fray, Edward arranges a series of Bride Balls--outrageous sexual events--and a willing decoy in his bid to find someone who loves him for himself and not his crown.
Enter Amber, daughter of a dead lord on his beloved mistress, a servant in her own household. When her irrepressible grandmother pushes her to find a husband or lover to protect her from the wrath of her step-mother, Amber loses more than her virginity...but it’s not a glass slipper that the prince has to track her with.
The race is on. Before these two are through, more than one couple may find their way through the traps of poison, lies, and no-win choices forged at a long ago Bride Ball and left to fester through two generations of the royal family.
Review: What little girl didn't love the story about Cinderella when she was young? Well, now as grown women we can have our own version....an adult version :)
Though I am not 100% sure if this was a historical, contemporary or what I still like it very much. Good characters, great bad guys (err girls), super sex and a great spin on the classic tale......with some extra thrown in there :)
I enjoyed all three parts in this book and have to say that the way the author gave them to us was cool. All angles were covered and I didn't feel like I was being left in the dark.
Congrats Ms Lyons, on a job well done. I can't wait to read more from you :)
