Manhattan magazine editor Macie Graham always gets her story—and she’ll do anything to uncover the dirt on famous conservative radio personality Ross Mannon. After he smears her article on his show, nearly costing Macie her job, she devises a plan to masquerade as a modern-day Cinderella and get her revenge on the infuriating Texan.
All Ross wants is a woman with old-fashioned values to be his housekeeper and role model for his troubled teenage daughter. When the perfect woman shows up, Ross is relieved—until he finds himself drawn to his gorgeous, red-stiletto-wearing new employee. “Martha Jane” is opinionated and sexy, and Ross is intrigued…and more than a little turned on.
Macie thought Operation Cinderella was foolproof, but Ross, with his rugged good looks and southern charm, proves to be as perfect behind-the-scenes as he does in public. But when she finally uncovers a secret that could destroy Ross’s reputation, she faces losing her job or losing the fairy-tale ending she didn’t even know she wanted.

I'm partial to anything that is even loosely connected to Cinderella, but that also means that my expectations are... ...more

In the wake of this year’s divisive elections, Operation Cinderella gives us faith that not only can staunch supporters of opposing parties find common ground, but they can also make good bedfellows. Hope Tarr spins this fun romance that, at times, reminds me of a modern day Pride and Prejudice.... ...more

Hope Tarr is a new author to me and I have to say she definitely put a new spin on this Cinderella tale for sure. It’s definitely not the version we grew up with as kids.
