"A tantalizing sequel to the beloved childhood fairytale"

King Charming has left Cinderella (Ella) to find adventure with his pirate lover. Ella is no longer the young girl infatuated by the charming prince. She's had to grow up and take on the responsibilities befitting a Queen. Her only true friend and confidant is her steward, Sebastian, who is forever at her service.

Ella longs for more out of her life than lonely nights alone in her bedchambers. She decides to throw a masquerade ball, intending to find herself a lover for the night. She's the queen and she should be allowed a night to indulge.

Only the wonderful night with her masked lover leaves her longing for more and wondering why the man seemed vaguely familiar. Craving the sexual pleasure denied to her in marriage, she decides to throw another ball, hoping her masked lover will attend again. Instead she is reunited with her first love and a satyr, who is more than willing to let Queen Ella experience the fantasy of her dreams. There is something similar about the satyr and her masked lover from the first ball and Ella suspects magic is involved since her fairy godmother has been visiting. Ella is determined to have the man reveal his true self. Sebastian will do anything for his queen even if it means ignoring his own desires. He knows Ella better than perhaps she knows herself. She yearns to be loved but first she must learn to trust again.

Unfortunately Ella's indiscretions are noticed and there are those who wish to have her removed from the throne. Ella must trust completely in her masked lover(s) for all to work out in the end.

What a tantalizing sequel to the beloved childhood fairytale-- Cinderella. I read this in one night, wanting to know what would happen next. The love scenes scorched the pages, and will leave the reader trying to fan the flames. This is no doubt an erotica with nights for pleasure, but there is also passion and undying love, too, giving you hope for the happily ever after.

You will undoubtedly fall in love with this romantic adult fairytale.

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…
