She's not waiting for her prince. He's not looking for a bride. But sometimes the most unlikely love stories end in ‘happily ever after'…
SHE WAS STOLEN AWAY
Ellie Stratham gave up her childhood dreams of a fairy tale romance long ago. To repay her late father's debts, she's forced to serve her spoiled cousin, Lady Beatrice. But Ellie has devised a secret plan to escape her life as a drudge. A plan that is thrown into jeopardy when she's abducted by a mysterious stranger.
BUT CAN HE STEAL HER HEART?
A notorious seducer of women—and a scoundrel to boot—Damien Burke has earned his nickname as the Demon Prince. But his plot to kidnap Lady Beatrice to make her brother return a priceless heirloom backfires—and he ends up with their penniless cousin Ellie as his hostage. By the time Damien realizes his mistake, he and his fiery-willed captive are trapped in a remote castle during a wild winter storm. And he soon finds that the true hostage may be his own heart.

Strong leads almost make up for clich d plot points and one-note family members in Drake's third Victorian-era Cinderella Sisterhood romance (after Stroke of Midnight). Notorious gambling den owner Damien Burke plans to kidnap a gentlewoman and force the return of a key stolen years ago by the lady's brother. Unfortunately, he nabs the family's poor relation instead. Ellie Stratham, a bosomy knockout under her drab clothes, intends to escape her life of drudgery by turning her fanciful illustrations into a children's book. Stuck at Damien's isolated Scottish castle until bad weather clears, the two find chemistry igniting as they try to fix his mess and save her reputation. Drake has created a wonderful couple, but everyone and everything else in the book from Ellie's awful relatives to the tired mistaken kidnapping of a drab duckling who is really a beautiful swan is entirely without nuance.
