Slippers And Thieves

Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Years ago, Elle—never call her Cinderella—escaped her evil step family in order to build a new life for herself in Manhattan. Today, Elle’s awful past is a distant memory. In fact, Elle even attends West Lake Prep, an exclusive high school where regular humans mix with members of the Magicorum, such as fairies, shifters and witches. Although she still must live in hiding from her evil stepfamily, Elle has always found ways to get whatever her heart desires.

That is, until Alec Le Charme.

Alec is the heir to the Le Charme dynasty of high-end jewelers. He’s also kind, charismatic, has a knee-melting smile. Elle has fallen for him, hard. Unfortunately, thanks to Elle’s evil step family, Alec is absolutely off limits. In fact, if Elle and Alec so much as kiss, it will start a magical chain reaction that would end in powerful factions of witches and wizards going to war. As a result, Elle and Alec vow to stay friends, no matter what. Then West Lake Prep holds a masquerade ball. Identities get mixed up and forbidden kisses are finally shared.

Time for the Magicorum to go to war, and for Elle to confront her hidden past in ways she never thought possible.

My Review:

Many years ago Elle first lost her mother then her dad remarried and then she lost her dad then her evil step-mother locked her in the basement taking over the family business. But this evil step-mother knew nothing about Elle’s magic so therefore she was able to escape with the help of her little friend.

Now Elle attends high school at West Lake Prep where humans mix with witches, shifters and fairies hiding away from her evil step-family. To help make ends meet Elle hunts stolen or missing jewelry for payment.

At West Lake Elle meets the charming Alec Le Charme the heir to the Le Charme dynasty of high-end jewelers whom she has an instant crush on but with curses on both of their heads a love affair between these two is off limits, if so much as a little kiss passes between them then it could result in a war between witches and wizards.

I loved the twist on the Cinderella story in Slippers And Thieves and adding magic was a special nice twist on the story along with all the action and romance. I also like that it has more than one paranormal creature like shifters, fairies and witches.

The characters are all great and I really loved Elle with her snarky comments and how she went after what she wanted. I liked her little friend the mouse.

I definitely recommend Slippers And Thieves to all fans of the magical world and fairy tale re-tellings.

All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.
