Every culture has its own version of Cinderella, whether it features glass slippers and fairy godmothers, or enchanted trees and magic fish, the love story endures and goodness is always rewarded. 

But in this story, Ella has been replaced by Elliot and her beloved prince is a princess severely lacking in charm. 

Elliot's step-father expects him to work from dawn until dusk, leaving him no time to miss the life of happiness and comfort he once knew. When the rest of his family are invited to a series of balls, held in honour of the Princess Charmaine's return from school, Elliot longs for a night off and the opportunity to reconnect with his childhood friend. But his step-father is busy plotting how his own son can win Charmaine's heart and doesn't want Elliot getting in the way. 

They will soon discover that Charmaine won't be easily charmed. She doesn't need a husband to rule by her side and she's going to use these balls to prove it. That is, until a friend from her past reappears and she discovers that falling in love doesn't have to mean losing control.

Princess Charming is a gender-reversal retelling of Cinderella and a companion story to Mirrored Snow.

Does anyone else feel bad for poor Elliot, if he's going to be stuck married to that wacko? He'd be lucky to survive.
She's almost deranged... I like her! 
                              But is she the best one to rule people though?

So this is Char... I'm sorry, dear, but she isn't stopping any time soon.
