Blurb : 

In a matter of moments, Ella Fitzpatrick’s life went from bad to worse. Her father’s boast pits her against every seamstress in the village all vying for the ultimate prize—guest of honor at the Prince’s ball. Once there, Ella catches the eye of the charming prince and manages to make a powerful enemy; one who is not above using magic to aid her quest. Now Ella is on the run, chasing the very villain who killed her mother ten years ago and who may be trying to kill her now. The only thing stopping Ella is her lack of knowledge about her own magical background—and Hunter, the Prince’s brooding bodyguard. Hunter Kirk has been in love with Ella since she promised to marry him when they were children. Now she is pledged to his Prince and someone might be trying to kill her. He has to get to her before the last Fitzpatrick sorceress is killed—and he loses his chance to tell her how much he loves her.

Suddenly, her father broke out of his almost trance and ran back into the tavern and Ella groaned as she threw up her hands and raced after him.

“Back so soon?”

The man’s gravelly voice stopped her a few feet from where her father stood arguing with the tavern-keep who gave her an evil eye.

She turned to face the green-eyed devil who had deemed to peruse her and her hackles rose again. Why was he getting under her skin this way? Sure he was attractive, but so were half the men in the village and she didn’t have heart palpitations when she saw them. She cast him a withering glance before she brushed by him on her way to her father.

“I tell you she is the best there is!”  Ella cringed at her father’s raised voice. Oh no. She had a feeling he was about to do something she would regret. Before she could voice her concerns, he continued in a loud voice. “I dare any man in here to say that he knows someone more talented than my girl!”

There was a chorus of laughter in the crowded inn.

“And what would you bet old man?” The tavern keep’s voice was loud. “Everyone knows the town drunk doesn’t have anything of value.” There was more laughter and Ella desperately tried to get to her father. This time, he danced away from her seeking hands.

“I do have one thing of value.” Oh no. No, no, no. Ella chanted in her head. Don’t say it, don’t say it.

“What do you have worthy of this boast?” The green-eyed man asked; his voice dangerously soft as he stared at Ella.

Her father laughed, “I will bet my property that Ella can sew better than anyone else in the kingdom!”

Book Review:

            So I read this line “I will bet my property that Ella can sew better than anyone else in the kingdom!” and thought the miller’s daughter with Rumpelstiltskin.  Then she calls the loom or something Rumples and I was OMG I’m right, but I wasn’t.  Actually there were so many parts of fairy tales in here it would be impossible to categorize this story into one.  It covers Sleeping Beauty, Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, and a few others.  Yet it was a totally new story with only touches of the other stories being mentioned in passing.  I loved this story.  It was amazing and I totally recommend you read it… just remember to keep reading when it seems like all hope is lost.  I almost gave up but I’m glad I finished the last chapter.  Then I totally didn’t want it to end.  Can’t wait to read more by this author.

            I give this story 4.5 out of 5 clouds.
