SUMMARY
A story of three women: two bound by blood, one destined to be queen.

For Celina, the magical night she met her prince ended in disaster, not happily ever after. Held captive by her family, she fears for the kingdom and the prince she loves.

Juliette is shocked to discover the glass slipper worn by Prince William's true love fits her foot. Now at the palace, she plots to escape the trap she finds herself in. Will the prince's handsome aide Robert Weston be a help or a hindrance to her plan?

Rosalind is furious she lost her chance for a royal marriage. Left to guard her stepsister, she manages the family estate with an attractive but antagonistic steward who sympathizes with Celina's plight.

With the kingdom threatened from dark magic within the palace itself, the three sisters must choose where their loyalty lies, with love or with power.

Take a traditional fairytale, give it a heavy dose of magic and it suddenly becomes new again.

In IF THE SHOE FITS, author Shirley McCoy gives Cinderella a reboot. While the basic components are intact -- handsome prince seeking woman who dropped her shoe -- there is an incredibly wicked stepmother who will stop at nothing to have her own daughter marry the prince.

I really enjoyed the character development. As the wicked stepmother, Beatrice truly rocks her role. Not only is she a fairly horrible person, but her use of dark magic greatly enhances her actions.

Her daughter Juliette is an unfortunate pawn in Beatrice's master plan. It's interesting to see there are actually three storylines woven together, with three separate couples featured. The chemistry between them is steamy, providing a fantastic new look to a traditional story.
