Betraying Ever After
by Kelly Martin
The first time Vaughan Wexley, Earl of Brighton, eyes the blonde beauty from atop the balcony, he is taken. Once he confronts her, he finds himself in love. The mysterious woman seems out of place in the regular sea of husband nabbing debutantes. She posses a gentle spirit, wide-eyed innocence, and-- his favorite quality-- cascading golden waves around her elegant shoulders. In need of a wife of noble blood, Vaughan believes his search has ended.
Emma Hartwell's only mission at the ball is to deliver a message to the host from her employer. In and out. That's the plan until she sees beautiful sights she's only dreamed of and hears wonderful music that touches her soul. Dressed up as a noble woman by the young housemaid Elizabeth and knowing she'll never get this opportunity again, Emma lingers longer than she intended. Her amazement with the grandeur allows the devilishly handsome Lord Brighton to steal her attention and sweep her off her feet. He is a charming man who is obviously taken with her. Emma's heart doesn't stand a chance. If only she could tell him the truth.
An earl in need of an honorable wife.
A servant in love with a man she can't have.
An evil plan that was set in motion years ago coming to fruition.
Can love conquer betrayal? Or will Emma's fairytale end atmidnight?
A Cinderella re-telling.

Her favorite reviews are from the people who 'know' they aren't going to like her books... but end up loving them :) She has three little girls, a handsome husband, and somehow manages to write-- putting out 10 books in the last 2 years. (She's not sure how either ;) )
She loves tumblr, gets excited about Sleepy Hollow, and a total Divergent/Sherlock fangirl.
When she isn't taking care of her family, working, chatting with fans, or writing-- she sleeps... occasionally-- unless she needs to beat that 'one last' level of candy crush.
