Blurb: Gwyn Jacobs doesn’t believe in fairy tales. Ever since her ex-husband walked out four years ago, abandoning her with their three-year-old daughter and four-month-old twins, Gwyn has had to be mother, father, and bread-winner all rolled into one. Her own scarred heart and failed marriage aside, she refuses to open up her children’s lives to the possibility of another heartbreak, so she has an unbending policy of no dating and no unattached men in her home...Until her very own fairy tale falls into her lap - and the hero won’t take no for an answer.

Review: I don't think I have ever read a story with a title that fit any better than this one! It was a fairy tale with all the necessary ingredients to make a fantasy come true for the leading lady. He is a handsome Hollywood superstar Prince Charming. She is an ordinary single working mother with three young children. She is not exactly a Damsel in Distress but close; and he comes to her rescue quite often. I have always heard of the hero sweeping her off her feet and that is just what happens in this sweet fairy tale come true.

The minor characters, even the kids, had "personality" and played important roles in this story.
I was not happy with what happened to the wicked ex-wife when I first read it, but then agreed that she should be part of the "fairy tale" ending also.

I liked the beginning, I liked the end, I liked this story!=
