"A wickedly erotic, grown-up fairy tale"
Years after the fabled ball when she met Prince Charming,
Cinderella is now Queen Ella and without her husband. He
left Ella and the throne several years prior to run off
with a lover, leaving Ella to run the country by herself.
Currently, she is lonely and frustrated, having had little
companionship since Charming left, except for her stoic
steward, Sebastian. Wanting to act out some fantasies, and
relieve the tension building between her country and its
neighbor, run by her infamous stepfamily, she hosts a
masked ball. At the ball, an unknown man ravishes her but
her indiscretion may prove to be politically disastrous as
her stepfamily looks for a way to dethrone Ella.
Ella must rely on Sebastian to guide her through her
political turmoil, and end her extreme loneliness.
As a lover of fairy tales, I adored Ella's story that
explored the "what if" of whether Cinderella actually had
her happily ever after. I think many women can relate to
Ella because she has put her duties before her own
happiness, placing herself in a position where she is

contains the elements of a great fairy tale, complete with
a fairy godmother, but adding adult twists comprising both
political intrigue and intensely erotic situations. A
great new twist on the classic fairy tale that does not

Three balls. Three sexual adventures. One true love.
In the years since her husband King Charming boarded a pirate ship to “find himself”, Queen Ella has ruled alone. Romantic love? It’s a girlish emotion. These days, her only confidant is her steward, Sebastian.
Five years is a long time to forego sexual pleasures. She’s the queen, after all..shouldn’t she be allowed a few indulgences? A masquerade is just the ticket to find fulfillment Charming never gave her. With Sebastian’s encouragement—and a little help from a fairy godmother—Ella prepares to make some magic.
The first masked stranger she dallies with gives her a taste of what she’s been craving. And it’s just not enough. A second ball follows. A third. Each one—and each anonymous man—sends her to new heights of sexual pleasure. And reawakens the notion that maybe, just maybe, love does not always lead to pain.
Her indiscretions have not gone unnoticed. As her stepfamily makes a move to take over the throne, Ella has nowhere to turn, no one to trust…except the men behind the masks…
