“I'd give up my whole kingdom to be with you. I want to be your Prince Charming.”

Aria has a big heart but bigger problems. Her whole life is a mess thanks to her controlling stepmother. But when she's knocked over- literally- by the hottest man she's ever had the pleasure of tangling up her body with, everything changes.

Henry Prescott, second-string rugby player for the Paradisa Royals, is funny, sweet, charming, and oh-so-sexy. He's got a rock hard body and tackles her in bed as fiercely as he tackled her in the park. Knowing nothing about rugby, but absolutely intoxicated by his accent, she finds herself falling for him.

There's only one problem: Henry Prescott doesn't exist.

The man she thinks she loves is actually Prince Henry, second in line for the throne of the nation of Paradisa. He's the man who Aria's entire department has to impress for trade relations. And that makes Aria's stepmother's plans even more dangerous.

He's the man who could destroy her world or make all her dreams come true.

He lied about being a prince... did he also lie about being in love?

NYT Bestseller Krista Lakes brings you this brand new sweet-and-sexy royal romance. This standalone novel will have you cheering for an American princess's happily ever after.

Review:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

An American Cinderella is a cruelty-free modern retelling of the famous story. When I say cruelty-free I mean that we don't see the evil stepmother get what she deserves in a major way. It was underwhelming. Also, I wanted to see the step-sister getting what she deserved since she was working with her mother. At least we got the prince. He was a constant in the story and I liked him a lot. He was dropping hints that could have revealed who he truly was from early on, but Aria spent a lot of time dealing with everything else.  The plot didn't have much drama and the romance between the characters was simple and very normal if you ask me. I liked that and I could almost forget who Henry really was. He and Aria were good people, but I fell for Aria a little bit more. I could call her dormant, but I think that her personality fitted the story and it made her more like Cinderella. In the end, she did the right thing and that's all that matters to me. I wonder if anyone else will get a story, like Henry's brother for example or if the book will be a stand-alone story.
