All Blair Miller has ever wanted was to study fashion in New York City. But as one door closed for her, another door opened. A bright and beautiful door that led her straight to a job at celebrity frequented, high end fashion boutique, ATTRAYANT, where she has now worked for years. When an invitation arrives for a masked ball that is being thrown to celebrate a world famous rock band’s new album, Blair finds herself being transformed into Cinderella for the night. When Blair not only falls for Prince of Rock, Hunter but also loses a precious $8,000.00 shoe, she finds herself in possibly the biggest mess of her entire life. How can she reveal who and what she really is to Prince Charming? How can she afford to replace such an expensive shoe? With the help of her two “Fairy God Fathers” who are pushing for her happily ever after…anything could happen.


            By the time I reach Camilla’s shop, it’s already open. I sneak inside, arm full of clothes and I hear Christian wailing, “Oh, my God, Blair!” He runs up to me and wraps his arms around me, “I thought you were dead!”
            “I’m so sorry!” I cry out, “I don’t know what happened, I just fell asleep.”
            I hear Anthony running up behind me, “Blair! Are you okay?”
            I nod, “I’m fine. I just fell asleep.”
            They both exchange glances and then glare at me, “Fell asleep where?”
            My mouth opens and I sigh, “It’s a long story.”
            I feel Christian beginning to the Harry Winston necklace, the dress and the shoes.
            “Blair, what on Earth are you wearing?” Anthony cries, “This is not a fashion statement.”
            I hear a rustling noise and see that Christian is carefully hanging the dress up to be steamed.
            “Have a good night?” Anthony winks as I finally catch a glimpse of my hair. Good thing I did wake up before Derek. I give the cow lick a push down and give my head a slight nod.
            “Blair!” I hear Christian holler. “Blair, honey where is the other Louboutin?”
            “What do you mean?” I ask, “it’s right there.”
            He shakes his head, “I have the dress, the necklace and one shoe.”
            Anthony laughs, “Blair, honey when we called  you Cinderella, we did not mean for you to take that literally.”
            My eyes grow wide, “Oh my God,”
            “Blair, did you honestly lose a shoe?” Christian asks. “Blair, those are seventy-five hundred dollar shoes!”
            I shake my head, “I don’t know. I don’t think so. I grabbed them both when I left.” I stop myself.
            “When you left where?” Anthony asks.
            “I told you, it’s a long story.” I say as I begin trying to think.
            “Did you at least get his number?” Christian asks.
            I shake my head as I run my hands down my face, “Oh my God. I’m going to get fired.”
            Christian shakes his head, “We’ll pay for the damn things before you get fired. I won’t have it.”
            “Blair, honey, what happened last night?” Anthony asks as he’s now standing behind the counter, where Camilla would freak if she ever saw him, and is reading a copy of the New York Post.
            “I went to the Hidden Ball, where you two sent me.” I say giving him the side eye.
            Anthony shakes his head and laughs as he holds up the copy of the New York Post. I read the headline carefully and then have to read it again.

Huntsmen’s Hidden Release Masquerade a Hit.

Hunter Snags Ball Belle.

            There, at the bottom is a photo of Derek and I, in a warm embrace on the dance floor.
            “Well, hell, when I said go meet Prince Charming, you went all out.” Christian laughs.
            “Oh, my God.” I mumble, sliding to the floor. “Oh, my God.”
