#FFFriday Review: Her Princess at Midnight by Erica Ridley


Erica Ridley brings us a sweet sapphic retelling of Cinderella with a twist in Her Princess at Midnight.

From the blurb:

What if Cinderella fell for the handsome prince’s… sister?

Cynthia lives a life of drudgery, toiling for her stepmother and stepsisters without receiving gratitude or pay. Every day is the same… until a royal retinue sweeps into town, inviting every unwed maiden to vie for the hand of the visiting prince.

The moment she lays eyes on the prince’s beautiful sister, Cynthia is smitten. She’s never been to a ball, and she’s determined not to miss this one. But when her family refuses to allow her to attend—not that Cynthia even has a gown to wear—it will take a miracle to escape the attic and catch the eye of the princess who holds the key to her heart!

Heather's Review:

Erica Ridley stays fairly true to the structure of the original Cinderella story, in so much as Cinderella is dressed by an outside source to attend the matchmaking ball, but the license she takes to make it F/F is sweet, fluffy and endearing.  It is of course instant attraction and instalove, but  you wouldn't expect anything else.

That being said, this short story left me craving more... more of Princess Ammalia's life, more of their story after the instant connection, more romance, more steam, just more...
