Cinderella's Phantom Prince and Beauty's Mirror
Two haunting novellas . . . two paranormal fairytale retellings by bestselling authors.
Cinderella’s Phantom Prince by Jenni James
Prince Adrian died tragically twenty years before, and until he met Adeline, his life had been quite lonely indeed. Suddenly, it is full of intrigues and a yearning desire to get to know the contradictory maiden. One moment, she is a prim and proper miss, and the next, a pillar of pluck and determination. Mostly, he finds he wants to protect her from the onslaught of her family—and the role of servant they have forced her to play.
Adeline Moses was not royalty at all—she was merely a companion to her two stepsisters, the daughters of Lady Attlepate. So when she finds herself falling for a princely ghost during a summer party, all the rules of etiquette and her station in life seem to be tossed out the window. Now she is attempting to spend as much time with the prince as she can without her stepsisters ruining what little bit of happiness she has found.
Their hearts feel alive for the first time in ages, yet a bit battered too, for how can such an unlikely pair find their happily ever after?
Beauty’s Mirror by Rose Fairbanks

But he cannot leave the estate grounds, and no one has ever loved him. Five years later, an angry and bitter prisoner in his own home, he hires a governess for Rosie in what may be his first selfless act ever.
Arabella Beauley once believed in magical tales, but when nothing can save her mother, she forsakes fanciful stories. When her brother incurs a debt to the duke of Erroll, she chooses to work off his debt as a governess. Bella expected merely to give French lessons. Instead, the strange happenings at Sundridge Castle engulf her. Is the duke as rough and beastly as others have said?

Lord Romney's Exquisite Widow
Four years ago, in order to save her family, Miss Catherine Poleton wed an earl old enough to be her grandfather. In doing so, she cast aside the advances of Lord Hamson, the only gentleman she had ever loved, and to the delight of her mother, became Lady Romney, the Countess of Huntingdon. However, she soon learned that it was not easy being married to someone so much older than herself—so much so that when Lord Romney died, Catherine vowed she would never wed again.
Lord Hamson believed he had moved on and was courting another when Lady Romney returned to town. Suddenly, his life was at sixes and sevens, and he could not deny that he felt the same for Catherine as he had before. But was it worth breaking his heart once more to renew his attentions, especially when the lady was determined not to have him? Or should he do what society expected and marry the girl he had nearly promised himself to?

Lacey had never been so appalled, so shocked, so scandalized! How dare the monstrous buffoon treat her so horridly, guaranteeing the gossips banter her name about over a ridiculous wager? It was not to be endured. With the help of her brother, Lord Melbourne, a counter bet was placed, and the stakes were high—for who could resist falling for the lovely bluestocking when she was most definitely in the right?
