Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.
Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a facade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . . .

The first in Van Dykens Bachelors of Arizona series charms readers with a decidedly modern retelling of the Cinderella story. After Janes fathers death, she inherited her familys cleaning business and the care of her two spoiled sisterswhich includes bailing them out of debt, cooking for them, and more. Wealthy orphan Brock Wellington has always put the needs of others before his own, so when his scheming grandfather blindsides him with the idea of auctioning himself off for marriage to the highest bidder, Brock feels he cant say no. After Jane breaks a heel at a Wellington event, Brock solicitously plays the prince. But when Brocks grandfather hires Jane to clean his late parents ranch without telling him, Brock turns into a surly knave. Brocks extreme pain at being in his childhood home is evident; there are memories in every corner and rituals he cant unlearn. Van Dyken (The Dare) also deftly portrays Janes insecurities and her confusion about Brocks transformation from charmer to jerk. A lively cast of supporting charactersparticularly Brocks brothers, Bentley and Brantprovide numerous opportunities to chuckle and cheer in this lighthearted, eminently readable treat.
