ABOUT THE BOOK


Summer Welles wants the fairy tale.

The illegitimate daughter of Reginald Summerhill, the Earl of Amberlin, she listened to her mother's stories about the Summerhill girls all her life. In her mind, Summer was part of the stories too—living in the castle, wearing fancy dresses, and falling in love with Prince Charming.

Her wish came true. Mostly. She lives in the Summerhill mansion. She has stepsisters—nice ones who don't make her clean the chimney. She even has a magical wedding dress waiting for her special day. The only thing missing is the perfect man.

She knows exactly who he is, and she's going to confront him at the annual Midnight Masquerade Ball. What Summer didn't count on was mistaking a masked frog for her prince.

Once she kisses the mysterious man, he won't go away. And he's not sweet or charming or princely. He seems more interested in ravishing her rather than riding off into the sunset with her, and—worse—she's tempted to let him.

Jess Rivera is a young music executive engaged to Morris Music's hottest rock star: Dylan Wolf. 

She wears a gorgeous diamond ring on her finger, and everyone wants to know when they're getting married. 

Between Dylan's screaming fans who chase him everywhere, plus their glamorous L.A. lifestyle, the couple can hardly get a moment alone together. 

That's why they're planning a secret wedding. 

But when a visit to a bridal gown boutique goes terribly wrong, all their romantic plans are ruined. 

Sometimes it feels like the whole world is against the couple's love. Is it just bad luck, or is someone trying to destroy Dylan Wolf? 

REVIEW

If I hadn't read the previous series with these characters, I'd really hate Dylan. I trust that all is not as it seems, which has been the case with J.J. Knight's previous books, but right now the Dylan in this book doesn't seem to align with the Dylan we met before. As always, Knight does a great job of craf…
