She's about to get charmed...
Libby Fay's safe little life as a waitress at a posh New York boutique hotel implodes when Sheikh Rasyn Al Jabar, black-eyed and seductive, crashes into her world and swears that he loves her.
The powerful sheikh will do anything to prevent becoming the ruler of his North African homeland, including marrying a woman who is inappropriate to be queen. When he sees the beautiful, bubbly waitress, he knows that she is the perfect wife to help him avoid the throne—all he has to do is make her fall in love with him.
All her life, Libby has longed for the same loving, equal partnership her parents had—something she couldn't possibly have with a forceful sheikh who ignores all her objections. But Rasyn seems to be able to charm her into anything, including his bed. Soon, she finds herself on a plane to Abbas, transported into a fairy tale come true.
Unfortunately for Libby, a Cinderella is the last thing this Prince Charming wants.

Admit it - every girl has a Cinderella fantasy! Who doesn't have that fantasy of a wealthy, handsome, sexy prince coming to take you away from your dreary world? Teresa Morgan's CINDERELLA AND THE SHEIKH explores that fantasy, manages to make it feel grounded in reality and tempts the reader with the hope of "happily ever after".
Libby Fay presents herself as a heroine a reader can get, envision and empathize with. Working as a waitress in a chi-chi upscale New York boutique hotel, she lives to serve others. Her only hope for her future is that she finds the kind of love her parents enjoyed before her father's death. Sheikh Rasyn ibn Bakr ibn Rahman al Jabar watches the beautiful server every day and determines she will be perfect to fall into the role of his bride to be.
Rasyn woos her, overwhelming her with his financial generosity and sinfully sensual attentions. Whisking her off to his country, Rasyn and Libby appear to be the making of a fantasy come true – that is until Libby discovers Rasyn's terrible secret plan. Can Libby overcome the pain of betrayal? Can a Sheikh be humbled by the power of love?
The characters Ms. Morgan creates are rich and well developed with strengths and weaknesses that make them eminently enjoyable. The settings are beautiful and lush. Libby and Rasyn's romance is sexy and smolders on the page. Watching the wary waitress fall for the Prince, stumbling along the way, makes this story witty and creative.
Hot desert nights filled with sensual loving and tense plot twists makes this story not just an erotic ride but a true emotional journey. Teresa Morgan takes the reader through the fire and ashes in a modern take of the traditional story. Cinderella and the Sheikh may just be the perfect summer read!
