**ONLY 99 cents!!** From USA Today bestselling author Aubrey Rose: One kind deed can change your life forever...

Brynn Tomlin could never afford to follow her heart. But when she sees a stranger shivering in the snow outside of the college library, an inexplicable urge leads her to buy him a hot cup of coffee. It's just a small act of kindness, a few words of conversation. Brynn should be focusing on her finals, after all, not on the man who looked up at her gratefully with piercing blue eyes.

He could have been anyone - a janitor on break, a graduate student, a bum. But the man standing outside in the cold turns out to be Dr. Eliot Herceg, one of the most brilliant minds in mathematics and heir to a fortune. After years of reclusive isolation, he now finds his heart awakening to the kind girl whose name he does not know.

Brynn has spent her life trying to forget her desires, and Eliot's deep wounds have taken nearly a decade to heal. After so much hurt, will either of them be able to open their hearts again?

Excerpt:

Before my mother died, she told me stories. I sat on her lap and listened to her spin golden fairy tales through the air. We never had much, but I didn't notice the cracks in our plaster walls when she talked about Cinderella putting on her crystal slippers and waltzing all night with Prince Charming.

"Once upon a time"...the stories always begin the same way, but from these beginnings my mother wove new tales that danced in all directions of the compass. She told me stories of castles and dragons, stories of men who flew above the clouds to reach the sun and gods who rained jealous fury upon their rivals. Stories of lovers whose passion rose above earthly desire and changed their fate to a different end than the world had meant for them. Stories of hope and of death.

None of those stories were true, but mine is.

From the Author:

Hi to all my readers! Me, Cinderella is my very first new adult romance novel, and I loved writing it... The story is about a young woman who longs to visit her mother's grave in Hungary and ends up finding love along the way. Both of the main characters in the book are troubled by the violent deaths in their past, and at its heart the story is a fairytale about two broken people trying to find a way to let themselves become vulnerable again.
This book is very personal to me - my father died when I was eight years old, and I've never been able to visit his grave. When I was younger, my mother would take me and my sister to the beach on his birthday, and we would attach notes to a balloon to send off into the sky. Later, whenever I visited a chapel, I would light a candle for him in remembrance. I have pictures of him, and my mom tells me stories about how much he loved us. But I've never been able to visit his grave.
Fairytales are meant to comfort us. I still miss my dad more than anything, and I still long to see the place where he is buried.  But writing this book has given me some measure of comfort, and I hope that sharing my story with my readers will help anyone who has lost someone and has a hard time sharing their grief. Love is the most powerful force in the universe, and it's what keeps us going through all kinds of tragedy. And love is what lets us know that--eventually--we will live happily ever after. 

Review:

"Me, Cinderella? absolutely amazed me!  It was like reading a hauntingly beautiful poem that leaves a mark on your soul by the end.  This book will most certainly have a place on my favourite list and Aubrey Rose is certainly an author that I am going to read more from..."
