In this modern Manhattan fairytale, Prince Charming is the one conning Cinderella…
Cynthia Swan knows that her life isn’t a fairytale. Living in Manhattan while working long hours as an intern veterinarian by day and waiting tables at night to make ends meet has knocked the fairy dust out of her eyes. But on her way home from working an Upper East Side cocktail party Cyn meets Cameron. Prince Charming might not exist, but allowing herself one night with a charming personal trainer couldn’t hurt anything.
Cameron Prince, CEO of Prince Enterprises, has always been skeptical about happily ever after. His father is on his eleventh divorce. If there’s one thing that has taught Cameron: it’s that being a billionaire brings a world of opportunities, but it makes love doubly hard to find. But one night he comes to the aid of a beautiful woman who mistakes him for a down-on-his-luck personal trainer. It seems harmless to let the fantasy play out, it’s only for one night and after all there’s no such thing as forever.
But neither Cyn nor Cameron are satisfied with just one night. For the first time he gets to be himself with a woman without all his family baggage and she’s finally found a man she can trust with her wounded heart. But as Cyn opens up and Cameron starts to think about forever, what began as an innocent case of mistaken identity becomes a guilty weight around his neck.
Will Cameron be able to convince Cyn he’s still worthy of her love and trust once she learns of his lies?
Author’s note: Take a secret billionaire hero. Add an everyday girl heroine. A pinch of mistaken identity. A dash of one night stand. Season with a couple of quirky cats, a bunch of nosy family members, and a singing strip-o-gram with a memorable confetti climax. Finished with a heavy sprinkle of snarky, snarky banter.
