Cinderella’s Enchanted Night by Amber Daulton


Annalise Gallagher wants Elijah Burleigh. Plain and simple. She’s watched him from afar for months, her friends call her “his own personal stalker,” and then she makes a wish on a magic pendant for a full-body makeover. Transformed into the gorgeous knockout she’s always wanted to be, she asks Elijah out on a date and wears a haute couture gown straight from Paris to his friend’s wedding. With just twenty-four hours on the clock, her enchanted night fades into the morning hours and everything crashes down around her. Annalise harbors a shameful secret and Elijah demands the truth with the veil of magic gone. The truth, however, could destroy her fragile confidence and push him away forever.

About the Author:

Writing is the fruit to happiness.

Amber Daulton lives her life by that one belief even though she normally isn't so Zen.

Author of several novellas, she published her first book in 2012 and hopes to publish countless more in the future. As a fan of contemporary, paranormal and historical romance novels alike, she can't get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of adventure, laughter and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he's down. She probably wouldn't be too sane without her computer and notebooks. After all, what's a girl to do when there are people jabbering away in her head and it's hard to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.

Reviews are available on Amazon, Goodreads, and Shelfari, as well as on numerous blogs. Please check out her blog or FB page to stay connected.

Review by Rochelle:

Cinderella’s Enchanted Night was a cute story. Annalise Gallagher has major body-image issues. She wants Elijah Burleigh, but she doesn’t dare approach him—not with her dumpy, lumpy body and a horrible disfigurement hidden under her clothes. Not until she wishes on an enchanted locket and wakes up the next morning with the perfect body she’s always hoped for. Full of the locket’s magical self-confidence, she finally speaks to Elijah and asks him out. But he’s busy—a friend is getting married. It’s black-tie. Would she like to accompany him? Hopefully the wedding will end and she’ll be home by midnight, so Annalise agrees. At least she’ll have one evening with Elijah.

I so wanted to give Cinderella’s Enchanted Night five roses, but it needed a bit better editing. Still, it’s a sweet story with well-drawn characters that deals with an issue I don’t think any woman ever escapes—body image.

I have photos of my grandkids in my hall. Each of my granddaughters complained about her photo—“my hair’s all wrong;” “I hate my smile.” Don’t we all wish we had a magic locket? What would you do if you had a perfect body for twenty-four hours?
