A chance meeting, a misunderstanding, and a second chance for a royal love affair...
Once, King Gabriel was bewitched by a violet–eyed beauty at a masquerade ball, but she left the function without a trace...not even a slipper. Now, Cinderella has a name. Fate has thrown India Hamilton right in Gabriel's path, and he's determined to expose her as the gold–digger he knows her to be.
But Gabriel's attempt at revenge soon loses its appeal as he spends more time with India. Her generous actions and smart control of his sister's foundation suggest a strong, kind woman, undeserving of his scorn and anger. It soon becomes clear that this is not a Cinderella story at all: India is a beauty, and Gabriel has been behaving like a beast.
