A prince with a taste for blood.Seventeen year old Cydney struggles against her werewolf nature, trying to keep everyone around her safe. No way will she risk exposing the beast at the prince’s ball, no matter how her two cousins try to persuade her. Even as she attempts to get on with her life, Cydney can’t forget the boy she loved three summers ago — or what she did to him after losing control.
Turned into a vampire to save his life, the prince refuses to live up to his royal duties. He just wants to find the girl he loved and lost…the werewolf girl who bit him. But his father, the king, commands him to attend a ball where he must choose a wife. Can he find his Cinderella before he’s forced to marry another? He doesn’t even have her real name, much less a glass slipper.

An Amazon exclusive in e-book and print.
I picked this novella up in e-book form for free from Amazon. I read it in an evening, but could not put down my tablet to save my life!
The concept is one we know, yet oh so different. While it hearkens to not only Cinderella but also Beauty and the Beast, it is only a passing nod.
What I liked was the little island country the author created. It’s in our world and yet so not our world. An island where all those of paranormal nature may call home, it’s a monarchy that is quite interesting to say the least. You meet werewolves and vampires and hear of witches. There’s even a Vampy God Father, which is downright awesome.
It’s light and cute while also quite serious as you contemplate social dynamics and politics. Cydney actually feels quite a heavy level of guilt and must learn to process it as she comes of age.
Honestly, I read this and immediately gave it five stars. This is a world I want to see more of, and seriously think it could turn into quite the series.
I can’t say this enough: I really loved this story. Read it.
