Fairy tales can come true

Thorndike Prince—handsome and successful—is a high-ranking New York City executive.

Cindy Territo is the janitor who cleans his office after hours.

This story is just so amazing. The characters were just so easy to read and fall in love with. just everything about this story I loved. I forgot how much I love this author. she's an amazing writer. I love fairy tale retellings. This retelling is kind of like Cinderella which is one of my favorites. this is just a quick and easy fall in love with story that should be read by many. I love it.

Cindy and the Prince may be a bit of an old story, but since when has a modernized retelling of the Cinderella tale ever feel outdated? The answer is, it doesn't. Likewise, this story feels as old as time with its theme of magical chance meetings of two people, and falling in love against all odds.

Sure, the story isn't necessarily realistic. Some fancy rich guy way up there in the business and social world to fall for some lady who cleans up his office? Yeah, given he didn't know that par

In Macomber’s romance novel, Thorndike Prince is everything a woman dreams of—handsome, successful, and wealthy. Cindy Territo is the janitor that cleans his office after hours while dreaming of meeting him. On a whim, she crashes the New York City executives Christmas ball. Her dream comes true as she dances with him all the while igniting his desire. In proper princess protocol, she flees at midnight unaware that this simple janitor has captured his heart.

What a romantic tale!

I don't normally do the romance book thing, but this one looked like it could be cute. Not so! It was horrible. More angsty than a locker room full of teenage girls, despite taking place between older characters. It came off as whiney and unbelievable and I honestly hated it.
I had a hard time getting through this. I love the story of Cinderella, but I was annoyed with the writing and the stupidity of Cindy. I like Macomber's newer works much better. A bit of language and some passionate kissing, but pretty clean.

just a take on Cinderella. Cute and easy read
Very good book about poor Cindy who cleaned Thorne Prince's executive office. The Christmas Ball was perfect for Cinderella to meet her Prince Charming. They fell in love and all the differences in their lives couldn't keep them apart. They married and, hopefully, will live happy ever after!

I usually like Debbie Macomber books - sweet stories, easy reads. This plot line, however, was a bit far-fetched, even for the hopeless romantic in me. If this had been the first Macomber book I had ever read, it would likely be the last as well.
Cotton candy-- sheer sugary fluff without enough substance to make a "willing suspension of disbelief" possible, leaving the equivalent mental sensations of fuzzy mouth and aching stomach.

Give me a break - really? This story shouldn't be listed as a romance but as a fairy tale. It was so sappy that I could not even finish the story. I stopped after the third chapter.

I almost didn't finish this because it just isn't as good as her other books-not enough depth to the plot or enough surprises in the story. You just knew what was going to happen.

Predictable, but very romantic nonetheless. A light, entertaining read.

I enjoyed this book because it reminded me of the Cinderella story. It would be a goodreads for a older teenager.
