    This book was so much fun to read I love fairy tales, and I love historical romance, so this wraps everything up into a must read.Jemmah is very likable, being brave and witty She has a pretty despicable family, but hasn t become a pathetic creature I enjoyed her female expletives Great Jumping Juniper Trees, I did Jules, The Duke of Dandridge is appropriately jaded, as most Dukes are wont to be yet compassionate and loving to the right lady.This book is based on an old fairy tale, similar to Cinderella, except that there is no wicked stepmother, only a deplorable mother and sister The self ...
