The Cinderella Curse by Dee S Knight

Genre Contemporary erotic romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

One evening, in a land far away, a wife spins a story for the amusement of her husband. Like the original tale, this contemporary Cinderella is definitely for those who love romance and a HEA. However, she adds a few touches of the erotic. For her husband, you understand.

In this tale, Charlotte dreams of her prince, James, but learns about beauty and love from her fairy godfather, Cooper. She might not lose a glass slipper, but her heart is in danger of being left behind. One thing for sure, by the time our Charlotte arrives at the ball, she’d sure like to know which man is her real Prince Charming.

Know the Hero from The Cinderella Curse

Here are some fun questions to help us know your hero.

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Cooper is a photographer and therefore he’s never bored. His mind is always looking at the world through a new lense and thus a new perspective. If he’s not taking photos, he’s examining and evaluating them, either for work or pleasure.

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

He has the joy of high metabolism and preferring almost any kind of food. He might pick up a candy bar for a burst of energy but he’s more likely to look for a protein bar or trail mix.

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

Definitely comfortable because he’s often clambering over rocks or even up trees to get the best shot. Cargo pants work since they have lots of pockets. For dressy he rarely goes beyond khakis and a sports jacket over solid-colored tee.

Does he know how to fix things?

Oh yes. He has to be able to tweak cameras since he’s not always near a camera shop. He can fix simple things on a car and in the house, but he doesn’t do much beyond handyman-type items.

He tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Cooper is really more a beta hero than an alpha. He was engaged once upon a time. She left him for another man and he make quite the effort to act like he got past the hurt. He pretended to be friends with her, though she’d broken his heart. In the end, he might have made the girl feel better but he never ranted and raved so it delayed the healing. (He’s such a nice guy—I think a favorite hero of mine.)

How does he act around children he doesn’t know?

He’s great with kids and they inevitably like him. Some day he’ll make a wonderful father.

What is he like first thing in the morning?

He’s even-keeled in the morning—as he is most of the time. He doesn’t jump out of bed ready to attack the day but he’s not a grump, either.

Can he use chopsticks?

Yes, but he doesn’t use them to show off. If he thinks his use would make his dining companions feel weird, he’s happy using a fork.

Does he drink coffee? If so, how does he take it? If not, what does he drink instead?

Black coffee

What apps would he have on his phone?

The app for the magazine where he works, one or two for his favorite museums—you can’t study art color and composition too much—a couple for his favorite photography supply places. Of yes, and a news app.

Android or iPhone?


Beard or clean-shaven?

Clean-shaven. He tried a beard once but couldn’t get past the itchy in-between stage.

Earrings/piercings/tattoos or unadorned skin?

No piercings or tattoos. If Charlotte breaks his heart, he might be upset enough to get a tattoo.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

Personal vehicle. He has to be in the field too much to use public transit.

Recycle or toss?

Truthfully, he usually tosses. But when he thinks of it, he doesn’t mind recycling.

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

After a while, Dee split her personality into thirds. She writes as Anne Krist for sweeter romances, and Jenna Stewart for ménage and shifter stories.
