From a young age, Clara Corden knew that she must act like a lady, marry well, and do what's best for her family no matter the cost. She has to set a good example for her three younger siblings and do her family proud, even if she'd rather be spending all of her time gardening or reading romance novels when her family isn't looking.

However, trouble crops up when her brother falls ill, a sorcerer calls in a debt, and the birthday celebrations of Prince Frederick, the most eligible bachelor in the land, comes with consequences. Even so, even with all of her quiet dreaming of fairytale romances, Clara cares more about helping her little brother than she could ever care about meeting a prince. If she could, she'd choose to say home.

But all is easier said than done. With the price of her brother's medications, her step-mother's secrets, Clara's debt to the sorcerer, and the promise of a steep fine to any lady of high standing who does not attend the Prince's birthday bash, Clara must go in order to find a husband with a full purse and, if she's lucky, a kind heart.

Between magic and missteps, sorcerers and step-mothers, princes and her duty as a lady and an older sister, Clara has her work cut out for her. And that's not even mentioning the two-sides of the handsome stranger that has her running in circles. If only she knew which side was the truth!

Great that you edit the 1st draft! I think it's a good way to do it & am happy that you bear to look at it, again :) The 2nd version was interesting, but didn't feel like a Cinderella story anymore. Keep on going!
