Sometimes you just have to believe… A single crystal slipper.

It was probably the weirdest gift librarian Celinda Branham ever received during a Christmas gift exchange. Who would even wear these in the real world? Not Celinda, wearer of sensible shoes and fairy tale naysayer. That said, she certainly has the requisite wicked stepmother, irritating stepsister, and empty bank account. Of course, if she actually believed in all that fantastical junk, she could wait for her Prince Charming… Only Prince Charming doesn’t exist.

But Preston Chandler believes in fairy tales. Oh, does he ever.

All he did was spurn the advances of a certain witch, and now his sister is under a sleeping spell. And the only way to break it? Find the other glass slipper and give someone “Love’s First Kiss.” But when Preston finally tracks down Celinda, he’s dismayed to discover that the shy librarian who owns the other shoe has no interest in anything remotely resembling magic—including love. Now he must find a way into his Cinderella’s cynical heart, or lose his sister… and his only chance for true love.

OK, this was a romance with a bit of magic, the two main characters were great and the pursuit of love was done extremely well. OK, so much for the good stuff. the fact that Preston is pretty clueless about women in general becomes painfully obvious as the book goes along.
