Once upon a time, there was a young woman who'd been treated like a princess all her life. Then her parents died and left her in the care of a beast.
Ever since she lost her parents when she was eighteen, Charlie has had to put up with Simon Shae, whom her parents made the trustee of her inheritance. He's grumpy and unsmiling and always trying to boss her around. At first, she resented him, but she's twenty-five now, and she kind of likes his beast-like qualities. In fact, she's crazy about him.
All she has to do is make him stop looking at her as a little girl and see her as the woman she is. A romantic weekend at a grand wedding in the mountains is the perfect opportunity to open his eyes. He reluctantly agrees to be her date, but if she wants to win his heart, she has to be brave enough to make her move.
Unguarded is the first novella in the One Fairy Tale Wedding series, in which three friends make a pact to get what they really want during one wedding weekend.

Great book! I only finished book one in the series but I loved it. Romance, intimacy, fun!
Third person, no personality
The book is written in third person, which in and of itself is not a crime, but unfortunately the author did not flush it out correctly, and the end result is stilted, repetitive, and lacking in true emotion. There are glimpses of a great story, like the moment she catches him smelling her coat. Sadly, they’re lost in the sub-par writing. This is a first draft. Keep working on it, hire an editor, and turn this charming thought into a beautiful fairy tale story.
Charlie and her best friend’s have made a pact for a weekend wedding they’re all attending. Charlie is going to go after the man of her dreams. If only he’d cooperate! Simon was formerly the trustee of her estate and remains very conscientious of his position and professionalism. While he’s a bit of a bear to most people, Charlie has seen another side of him and she wants him.
This was a very enjoyable romance and I look forward to the rest of the trilogy!
