From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a dark and twisted retelling of the beloved fairytale, Cinderella!
My name is Ashley Ellis…
I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family.
When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.
With the help of my godfather, Gus, I have escaped from Mosier’s clutches, but his twin sons and henchmen have been tasked with hunting me down. And they will stop at nothing to return my virgin body to their father
…dead or alive.

I was just blown away by this story. It was nothing like I had been expecting at all! You read the synopsis and you look at the picture – you think “oh, a sweet Cinderella love story”.
You have no idea what you’re getting into with this book! The main character Ashley is the sweetest and most caring female character I have come across in a while and she’s endearing. So much so that her pain hurt me. She is raised as the unwanted offspring of a 16 year old Catholic Welsh girl who is then disowned by her overly religious parents to raise this baby on her own.
With no experience and no idea what she’s doing, Ashley’s mom Tig, raises her in an LA stylized fantasy. Filled with drugs, parties, glamour and sex. Tig ends up becoming a world famous model and has more money, drugs, and parties than she knows what to do with. All while raising her daughter, now presented as her SISTER, for political stardom reasons.
At 13, Ashley is swept up into this lifestyle of watching her mother nearly kill herself with her lifestyle, when a millionaire reaches out to Tig and requests her to marry him and move to New York with him, bringing her sister Ashley, of course. Tig is married to this millionaire, Mosier, for several years before she meets an untimely death.
After her funeral, Ashley is with the family listening to the reading of her mother’s will and finds out that once she graduates high school in one month, Mosier wants her to stay home and live with him. Back at home, he reveals to her that he expects her to marry him and bear his children. Keep in mind – this man is at least 30 years older than 18 year old Ashley. WHEW!
Ashley ends up on the run hiding from Mosier and meets her very own Prince Charming. Follow Ashley’s horror and eventual grace in this epic love story about a brave young girl just trying to feel safe.

Forty books later, Katy claims authorship of the multititled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other stand-alone novels and novellas, including the critically-acclaimed, 2018 RITA© nominated, USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Unloved, a love story.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later.

Katy’s books are available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
