Who Writes Cinderella Stories Better than Eloisa James?
No Eloisa James fan should miss these enchanting short stories!
A Midsummer Night’s Disgrace!
After Miss Cecilia Bellingworth has endured two Seasons, she decides that she would rather ruin her reputation than endure further speculation about whether her children will be “silly,” like her brother, Billy. She puts on a gorgeous gown and decides to flirt outrageously with the first handsome servant she sees! Luckily, a gorgeous musician at the Duke of Ormond’s ball seems the perfect candidate to create a scandal… Don’t miss this charming version of Cinderella, previously published in the Essex Sisters Companion Guide.
Elias Hempleworth-Gray has only one thing only of value—his title, Earl of Leyton. Determined to leave England and the scandal of his gambler father behind, Elias hopes to turn around his fortunes and come back to claim the lady he loves, Miss Penelope White. But Penny has other plans for the man she has loved all her life...plans that include a masquerade, a stolen kiss and a lost shoe.
Would have loved to read these as full length novels. Each story was over just too soon. But, everything by Eloisa James is delightful.
Left me wanting more
Let’s say you are getting married. There are so many things to take care of, the events, the venue, the band, etc. But then, there’s the cake tasting! Three delicious choices that you know you could just gorge yourself on, but, it’s called a “tasting” for a reason.
That’s what you get here. You know they could be some wonderful books to “sink your teeth into”, but you only get a dab of that on your reading palate. While you know they could be wholly satisfying, they just leave you wanting more (hence the title of this review).
If you’ve got a free hour and want to read some sweet stories of old acquaintances being reunited in love, this is the book for you.
