Greek tycoon Nikolaos Costas has a debt to collect fro the Stefanopoulos family and he won’t leave until he gets his money. Stefanie Stefanopoulos has been tasked with entertaining—i.e. distracting—him while he’s in town, all in hopes of getting him to forgive the debt. She may not be an ugly duckling, but she’s a far cry from her petite stepsisters and she knows that the gorgeous playboy won’t even notice her. It doesn’t stop her from wanting him to, though.
Four months ago, Nick’s bachelor-style life was turned upside down. Now the sole parent to a seven-year-old daughter he never knew existed, Nick doesn’t have time for pleasure. But he hadn’t factored in Stefanie or the intense attraction he’d feel for her. As her seduction heats up, so do the stakes, both professionally and romantically. Can he let business go long enough to allow Stefanie into his heart?
The Cinderella Seduction is the best of the three, but it still wasn’t totally my thing. I’m not big on the devoted single dad and loving wannabe stepmom type Romance. Stefanie is the “ugly duckling” of her family, so she gives herself a makeover in hopes of seducing Nikolaos. He’s coming from Greece to possibly take over their family business if Stefani’s father can’t pay his debts. When he arrives, Stefani turns on the charm, but she winds up being the one seduced.
I liked The Cinderella Seduction. I’m always up for an underdog coming out on top, especially when that’s a plump woman stepping into her confidence and getting her man. Which is exactly what Stefani does. Nick is a reformed playboy who’s just trying to do right by his young daughter, which means no more dating around. He needs a stable relationship. Of course, there has to be a fight because Nick finds out that Stefani was plotting to seduce him. But being the gentleman that he is, he does check in on her rather than disappearing for a length of time before returning.
The Cinderella Seduction was short and sweet. A bit too sweet and family-oriented for my liking, but still an enjoyable read. I just wish there had been more food since Stefani is a chef.
