What happens in Vegas…Waking up to the bright lights of Vegas in an unfamiliar penthouse suite, cocktail waitress Phoenix Montgomery finds she’s covered from head to foot in gold glitter and not alone – aside from the empty bottle of champagne, there’s a mystery man in the shower and a huge sparkly ring on her finger! Stays in Vegas? There’s no denying Max Waldburg’s demi-god sex appeal but commitment-phobic Phoenix doesn’t do relationships. Only it seems her new husband (agh!) has other ideas…he’s trying to keep that ring on her finger and his wife firmly back in his bed. The only question on her lips is – why? Or maybe, why not?

Review: Phoenix wakes up with a strange man in her bed and finds she has married him. He begs for a chance to convince her that they are destined to be together that none in his family has divorced in 300 years.  She slowly accepts she has feelings for him but still wishes she could remember the night they supposedly married.
This story is your typical Cinderella romance, the perfect man ( prince charming and the woman that has had a rough life and wants to chase her dreams) he modern day twist  mixed with folklore and  fairy tales is charming and sweet.  I loved all the characters and the story is a classic who doesn’t dream of a man that loves you.

Recommendation: If you like a Cinderella type sweet romance, complete with princes, and castles and kingdoms, toss in  a modern day setting, with a strong female lead, that is afraid to follow her heart and  accept her prince charming,  lots of sensuous romance you will love this one.
