Resting after the hectic holidays, I curled up with one of my favorite romance authors, Jane Feather! Jane was born in England and has a great sense of detail in her historical romances. When I read them I am transported across time and sea, kind of like in Alien's spaceship, to a magical land of lords and ladies.
Here is an excerpt from the back cover of The Diamond Slipper.
"What comes to mind when you think of a diamond slipper? Cinderella perhaps? That's what Cordelia Brandenburg imagines when her godparents arrange a marriage for her with a man she's never met. A marriage that will take her to Versailles, far from the rigid confines of her childhood home. The betrothal gift is a charm bracelet with a tiny, glittering diamond slipper attached... as befits a journey into a fairy-tale future. But Cordelia-young, headstrong, and completely adorable-runs into trouble right away. "
