Title: The Fairy Tale Bride (Once Upon a Wedding #1)
Genre: Historical Romance
Pages: ebook
Published: 2000
Where I Got It: My Shelf (Amazon)

Miranda Fenster, known throughout society as the Fairy Tale Miss because she insists that happily ever afters are possible even amongst the arranged marriages of the Victorian aristocracy, is on a mission. Her goal? To rescue her brother. Her adversary? Simon Watterly, Duke of Kerstone. A man who almost offered for her five years before.

Simon has a mission of his own.

Furious with his late father and disillusioned by the honorable facade of society, he believes that family honor requires the ultimate sacrifice from him. Unfortunately, Miranda is determined to change his mind. Will Simon get his wish or will Miranda make him see he deserves a happily ever after?

Where shall I begin?

Well...the beginning was really good. However, it slowly started falling apart from there.

Miranda was a fun character and the only character I could stand remotely stand. 

Simon was a super asshat and I felt so bad that Miranda got all mixed in with him and his crazy, messed up family. His antics and lies would have ended any relationship...so Miranda was a fool in the end too. 

I barely made it to the end. I had to push through for one reason and one reason alone....I wanted to see everything blow up in Simon's face. Asshat. 

Big bleh. 

In the end, I shall stamp this with 1 stars.
