Read full description of the books:Once upon a time..not to long ago. A reviewer named Rane came across a book, but not just any book- a book with a beautiful cover in shades of the fairy tale Cinderella. Now Rane has read many good things about this book, and the stars bestowed upon showed it’s favor to other readers. So taking a chance, she picked up this book and took it home with her, hoping all turned out well, if not she could complain loudly.
Thankfully, Rane did not have to complain and saved her vocal cords the trauma. Now Rane had to admit, she’s never been fond of this author’s works, but was willing to give everyone their chance, was happily surprised at the delightful story. With a lead named Kate was not as meek or weak or a songbird of Cinderellas of old, no this heroine was strong and cunning. As Rane read on, about Kate who was forced to take the role of her sister, the story moved on very quickly, as Kate is forced through one obstacle or another. Having to keep her disguise, Kate the heroine meets up with her- unknownn to her- own godmother, that doesn’t wave around a wand with magic, but is feisty and could talk anyone down man, woman or beast. And whom Rane had to admit was her favorite character throughout the book. We finally meet the prince whom was not Prince Charming, but could be very conceited, but caring to his family and others, his love for history made him smart, but it was up to the strong Kate to turn him on his head and his ways.
Now Rane did enjoy the story and the leads very much, (and could admit had a crush on the prince’s brother Wick) sadly the Prince Gabriel in all his fine feathers was lacking in her eyes. Rane couldn’t place her finger on what was lacking until she saw she was in the middle of the book by then, when it dawned on her, the lack of growth and stage present the Prince Gabriel had. The time focus on Kate was all and well, but this took away from Kate and Prince Gabriel, and this just wouldn’t do for Rane the Reviewer. As the story progress, with rats that were really cute dogs, and truths finally known and of course glass slippers! Rane was happy with all the nice twists the story had to offer on an classic fairy tale. Even with some nice love scenes- save Rane’s blushes!
As Rane reached the end of this book, she proclaimed to all “This was a fun and delightful book indeed!” and that was all.
As she wrote of this funny little review for all those to read, she sighed happy waiting for the next in the series as she went onto her next book journey
The End.....Until the next Review!
Read information about the authorNew York Times bestselling author Eloisa James writes historical romances for HarperCollins Publishers. Her novels have been published to great acclaim. A reviewer from USA Today wrote of Eloisa's very first book that she "found herself devouring the book like a dieter with a Hershey bar"; later People Magazine raved that "romance writing does not get much better than this." Her novels have repeatedly received starred reviews from Publishers' Weekly and Library Journal and regularly appear on the best-seller lists.
After graduating from Harvard University, Eloisa got an M.Phil. from Oxford University, a Ph.D. from Yale and eventually became a Shakespeare professor, publishing an academic book with Oxford University Press. Currently she is an associate professor and head of the Creative Writing program at Fordham University in New York City. Her "double life" is a source of fascination to the media and her readers. In her professorial guise, she's written a New York Times op-ed defending romance, as well as articles published everywhere from women's magazines such as More to writers' journals such as the Romance Writers' Report.
Eloisa...on her double life:
When I'm not writing novels, I'm a Shakespeare professor. It's rather like having two lives. The other day I bought a delicious pink suit to tape a television segment on romance; I'll never wear that suit to teach in, nor even to give a paper at the Shakespeare Association of America conference. It's like being Superman, with power suits for both lives. Yet the literature professor in me certainly plays into my romances. The Taming of the Duke (April 2006) has obvious Shakespearean resonances, as do many of my novels. I often weave early modern poetry into my work; the same novel might contain bits of Catullus, Shakespeare and anonymous bawdy ballads from the 16th century.
When I rip off my power suit, whether it's academic or romantic, underneath is the rather tired, chocolate-stained sweatshirt of a mom. Just as I use Shakespeare in my romances, I almost always employ my experiences as a mother. When I wrote about a miscarriage in Midnight Pleasures, I used my own fears of premature birth; when the little girl in Fool For Love threw up and threw up, I described my own daughter, who had that unsavory habit for well over her first year of life.
So I'm a writer, a professor, a mother - and a wife. My husband Alessandro is Italian, born in Florence. We spend the lazy summer months with his mother and sister in Italy. It always strikes me as a huge irony that as a romance writer I find myself married to a knight, a cavaliere, as you say in Italian.
One more thing...I'm a friend. I have girlfriends who are writers and girlfriends who are Shakespeare professors. And I have girlfriends who are romance readers. In fact, we have something of a community going on my website. Please stop by and join the conversation on my readers' pages.
