The Masked Cinderella
Seventeen year old Cindy Evanston doesn't like her life. She yearns to leave the kingdom of Aurel...and her demanding stepmother and stepsisters. Her self-esteem is constantly being let down by them, and the only friend she has in the world is Hans. But lately, Hans has been ill, and Cindy feels more alone than ever in the world. She plans to attend the Masquerade Ball behind her family's back, not planning to meet a mysterious man. A man who seems to have an interest in her... Unfortunately, she has to slip away before her family returns home.
Richard Kirstoff is the soon-to-be king of Aurel, and he would rather be his younger brother, Lionel, who isn't worried about upcoming coronation...or the masquerade ball...or finding a wife. Richard doesn't believe in true love and simply plans to marry the first girl his parents approve. When at the Masquerade Ball, however, he encounters a girl with a down to earth attitude. But when the clock strikes twelve, she runs away without a second glance, leaving behind a bracelet with the initials CLE.
Will Cindy and Richard find the happiness that they want and deserve?
