"Heart-melting...a perfect fit for fans of contemporary romance authors Jasmine Guillory and Alexa Martin." --Booklist

From award-winning author Rebekah Weatherspoon comes a thoroughly modern take on the timeless tale of a struggling Cinderella who finds her prince charming at the eleventh hour--and the adventure that ensues the morning after . . .

Working as the personal assistant to one of Hollywood's cruelest divas has left Amanda Queen more determined than ever to sell her screenplay and gain her independence. In the meantime, she'll settle for a temporary escape. When her employer is felled by the flu on Hollywood's biggest night of the year, Amanda gets her glam on, struts out the door, and parties with the glitterati. But she never expects to come face to face--and closer than close--with one of the hottest stars in the game . . .

Following up his first Oscar win with a steamy after-hours romp with an enigmatic woman seems like the perfect way for actor Sam Pleasant to celebrate--until she suddenly disappears. Worse, she's vanished with the wrong swag bag: the one containing his Oscar statue, leaving Sam even more intrigued about the beauty's identity--and wondering if a repeat performance of their amazing night is in the stars. And when a second chance encounter happens, only a trip to Sam's family ranch--and revealing the whole, not-always-glamorous, truth about themselves--will give them a chance to turn one magical night into forever . . .

"Wonderfully inventive...Uniting a heart-stopping hero and a plus-size heroine who knows her own worth, this steamy fairy tale shines." -- Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

"One of romance's brightest stars...[this is] a thoroughly modern Cinderella story." -- Bookpage , Starred Review

"Another winner from rising star Weatherspoon." -- Library Journal , Starred Review

Booklist Review: "Oscar-winning actor Samuel Pleasant knows he's living his best life, but it can be lonely at the top. A curvaceous woman catches his eye at an Oscar after-party and they agree to share an anonymous night together, but in the morning he wakes to an empty bed and regrets that he didn't get her name. Cute and quirky Amanda McQueen came to L.A. to be a screenwriter but ended up working as a personal assistant for an up-and-coming actress with severe behavioral issues, sending Amanda's self-esteem plummeting so low that she's unsure if she really deserves the attention of a gorgeous and successful man like Sam. They bump into each other again at a wedding held at the exclusive Big Rock Ranch resort, owned by Sam's family. Unable to avoid fate, Amanda leans into the possibility of something more as Sam gently introduces her to his favorite horse and key members of his multicultural and loving family. Weatherspoon's heart-melting follow-up to A Cowboy to Remember (2020) is a perfect fit for fans of contemporary romance authors Jasmine Guillory and Alexa Martin."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "One serendipitous night transforms an aspiring screenwriter's life in this wonderfully inventive, Cinderella-inspired romance, the second in Weatherspoon's Cowboys of California series (after A Cowboy to Remember). Assisting the most demanding of Hollywood divas has sucked the joy out of Amanda McQueen's California dreams. Amanda's on call for her boss seven days a week and works most nights. But thanks to her friend--turned--fairy godmother, starlet Helene Sawyer, Amanda scores tickets to an A-lister party, where she dances her blues away with Sam Pleasant, a courtly cowboy turned Black Hollywood royalty. Getting footloose on the dance floor transitions into a "mind-blowing" turn in the sheets, which Amanda mistakenly assumes will be a one-night stand. After all, what could a celebrity like Sam want with a woman like her? A lot, it turns out. They like the same pop culture, share similar values, and have amazing chemistry. But issues arise from their differing social statuses: Sam's at the height of his career while Amanda's trapped in a job she can't afford to quit and feels perpetually discounted by the industry. Uniting a heart-stopping hero and a plus-size heroine who knows her own worth, this steamy fairy tale shines by serving realistic conflict alongside swoon-worthy romance. Agent: Holly Root, Root Literary. (Nov.)"
