"An appealing modern day Cinderella story"

In modern day America -- LA to be specific, Eileen has been in love with Brock (now her boss) since she was ten. Her problem -- he is interested in her stepsister, the blonde and beautiful Alyssa. When her father dies, cuts her out of the will and she gets kicked out of her childhood home, Eileen returns to her computer security job to find Daniel Collins, another computer geek hired to help maintain her workload! Now we mix in the magic. Mirabella is a Grantor from Wish Makers International that must help Eileen fulfill her wish. This isn't the make your wish and its granted type of magic though. So why is it Eileen, who's wish is to have Brock love her, finds herself suddenly so confused?

Poor Eileen, she wants true love, but in order to gain her wish for love, through Wish Makers International, she must complete a seven-step process. As she is spending so much time with Daniel she discovers his more human side and much to her dismay, Eileen is attracted to him! While I think a good psychologist would have recommended some of the steps she had to pass to get her wish, the relationship between Eileen and Mirabella was fun and defiantly not clinical! The budding relationship between Eileen and Daniel was enjoyable to follow especially when Brock takes notice of her. While you will find yourself wondering what she sees in Brock, and I think the way she overcame her childhood fascination was understandable; but can Dan! iel understand this as well?

While I don't read to many contemporary paranormal romances and I think I would have preferred a little more of a paranormal touch, GLASS-SLIPPER-DOT.COM is a modern day Cinderella and this appealed to me. With fun secondary characters and an interesting plot, this was a fun story!

When you wish upon a star...

Good Witch, Mirabelle Saintly, and Wishmaker’s International are there to help. After all, they’ve been granting wishes as far back as Cinderella, and are now fully-computerized and with a mission statement to “help every individual attain their wish.”

But Wishmakers is in trouble. With the cosmic power shift of the new millennium, Wishmaker’s magic is threatened. The Good Witch’s magic wands sparkle a little less brightly with each failed “grant.” By midnight of the year 2001 Mirabelle must grant the wish of her next assignment, Eileen Pringle, or Wishmakers and all Good Witches will fade forever into fabledom.

The latently beautiful computer nerd, Eileen, has stumbled into the new millennium with all the grace of a wounded goose. Her father has died, her stepmother has kicked her out of her home, and she can’t get her boss, Brock Van Buren, to notice her, let alone fall in love with her. She can’t seem to tell her left foot from her right...until she stumbles into Mirabelle Saintly’s world.

With the help of Mirabelle and her trainee, the flamboyant Gus, Eileen’s a sure bet to have her wish for true love granted. Right? Wrong. The wish has to be earned, and the tasks Mirabelle sets for Eileen seem unattainable. Not only that, but a disturbingly handsome fellow employee, Daniel Collins, appears intent on sidetracking her from her goal.

Undercover FBI cyber-agent Daniel Collins’s assignment is to find the culprit inside Brock Van Buren’s software company who’s hacking into government files. He doesn’t count on losing his heart to his prime suspect...Eileen Pringle.

Will Mirabelle’s race against time to unite the star-crossed lovers end in tragedy? Or will the Cinderellas of the world continue to find a perfect fit in Glass-Slipper.Com?
