Housekeeper Mark Sintorella (Sinders) works diligently at a resort hotel while designing clothes anonymously, hoping to get into fashion school. Then his carefully planned life is upended with the arrival of Ashford Armitage, son of the fifth richest man in America—and the most beautiful guy Mark has ever seen. Ash must find a wife or he’ll lose his grandfather’s inheritance, and he settles on Bitsy Fanderel. But secretly Ash is gay, and the guy who cleans the fireplaces sets his heart ablaze.

Further stirring the pot is the little elf of a man, Carstairs Pennymaker, who has Mark wearing his own designs and masquerading as a girl to impress the fashion investors in the hotel. When the clock strikes twelve, two beautiful princesses line up for the wedding—but one isn’t a woman. Will the slipper fit? Only Mr. Pennymaker knows for sure.

What would you do to make your dreams come true? How far would you go? Mark gets the chance of a lifetime. A chance for his work to be seen by all the right people and maybe a way to get the life that he longs for. Can he find the strength to take that chance or will he let life and possibly love pass him by? With the help of a special new friend, Mark could soon see his dreams come true. As Mark is trying to change his luck, Ashton comes along bringing chaos and love with him.

This is a sweet story that will remind readers of an old fairy tale. Mark and Ash’s story will have you believing in the magic of dreams and love. I enjoyed watching the two men find their way to their happy ever after. They find that love is always worth the risk and always worth fighting for. Seeing Mark reach for his dreams made for a wonderful read. Not only do Ash and Mark have something to say but Mr. Pennymaker is a little man that makes a big statement. I loved watching him help Mark find the courage to grab for his dreams. So much goes on and neatly falls in place with the help of Mr. Pennymaker. With a nudge here and a nudge there we get to see love and dreams cone true in this story. Mark and Ash are good men who just needed a little help from a special friend. Deep down each man is strong and only needed some one to believe in them and together they are a something else.
