Shirley G. Martinabout this book: "Midnight for Morgana" is s sexy rendition of the Cinderella story. I got the idea for this romance from a book I have of Celtic Fairy Tales. The Cinderella story is apparently a universal idea. I liked the name of Morgana, and I included the 'midnight' part of the title because in the Celtic tale, she must return home from a fair by midnight.
In the Celtic fairy tale, there is a good witch who enables Morgana to attend the fair. Morgana sees her two sisters getting ready to attend the fair, while she must stay home and do housework. A good witch comes to visit her and magically decks her out in beautiful clothing, instead of the ugly clothes she normally wears. The witch also does the housework for her. At the fair, she sees a handsome prince, but the good witch had warned her not to talk to anyone. And in a bit of variation from the Cinderella story we are all familiar with, the prince tries to grab her as she rides off to leave the fair. Instead, he grabs her shoe. He must search throughout the kingdom for a lady whose foot fits the shoe.
Here, too, Morgana has two wicked sisters who are jealous of the fact that she snared a handsome prince.
I liked the cover because it shows the handsome prince and the beautiful lady whom he first saw at the fair. This book was fun to write.
