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.

Though I very much enjoy Entangled Publishing's releases, it has been some time since I devoured and loved one of their titles as much as I did with Operation Cinderella by Hope Tarr.

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

By Debra January 17, 2013

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.

My first Hope Tarr book and won't be the last.

I'd attempted to read Enslaved by Hope Tarr before, still have it somewhere in the TBR piles, but I think I got three chapters in and went, yeah, no. So I was a mite apprehensive going into this one, but someone sent me the book and was like, 'just try it.'
