A Cinderella who spends her nights as a wolf. A prince with a taste for blood.

Seventeen year old Cydney struggles against her werewolf nature, trying to keep everyone around her safe. No way will she risk exposing the beast at the prince’s ball, no matter how her two cousins try to persuade her. Even as she attempts to get on with her life, Cydney can’t forget the boy she loved three summers ago — or what she did to him after losing control.

Turned into a vampire to save his life, the prince refuses to live up to his royal duties. He just wants to find the girl he loved and lost...the werewolf girl who bit him. But his father, the king, commands him to attend a ball where he must choose a wife. Can he find his Cinderella before he's forced to marry another? He doesn’t even have her real name, much less a glass slipper.


Excellent, sweet and irresistable romantic fantasy!

Cydney meets a boy, Remy, while she visits her aunt's house.  They do not wish to share their identity, so they call themselves Cinderella and Jack.  In three summers that Cydney met him, they began to fall in love with each other.  That was the stage, when Cydney's werewolf father's gene became dormant.  When Cydney received her first kiss from Remy, due to excitement, Cydney morphed into a wolf and bit Remy without control.  Cydney left Remy and ran in her wolf form.  But, after some time, when she came to her senses, she feels terrible and goes in search of Remy, but, Remy was trace anywhere. 

Cydney was afraid that she had killed the only boy she loved, and started shying away from society.  Her mom takes her back to their place and she never came back again.....until her mom died three years later.  Now, she lives with her aunt, still worried about losing her control and living in guilt for what she had done to Remy (or her Jack).  What she doesn't know a lot.. The boy Cydney bit, is still alive, and is also the King's only son.  And yeah, he was changed to a vampire, in order to save him from dying from her bite.  And one more thing, that hot guy is getting married soon.  A werewolf Cinderella meets vampire prince!  Wait, actually, will they meet?

Now, if you are still not interested to read this novel after this, we won't get along! :)

This land of werewolves, vampires and witches is so normal to read.  I am so very glad that I read this one.  There is no ugly step-sisters here..actually, I liked Cydney's sisters and one little brother in this book.  This, without a doubt, is the most happy and likeable read for me in this month.  The characters are not deep, but this is right for a short novel.  There is humor, adventure, action, romance and the most important of all - 'happily ever after'.  Its a satisfying read!

If you are into fairy-tales or fairy-tale retellings, then you should not wait another second to pick up this book.  I am sure you would enjoy this as much as I do.
