A sparkly and witty historical romance for fans of Georgette Heyer, Amanda Quick and Downton Abbey
Being an heiress in 1920s Austria with nothing but a broken-down castle to your name and nary a penny in your purse could be frustrating for anyone but the Princess Theresa-Maria of Pfaffenstein. Tessa, however, is thrilled with her situation, as it allows her to concentrate on her love of the arts—and no one in the Viennese opera company need know that their delightful and charming under-wardrobe mistress is really a princess. But when the dashing self-made millionaire Guy Farne arrives at the opera in search of suitable entertainment for his high society guests, Tessa realizes that there may be more to life—and love—than just music. But while the attraction between them in undeniable, Guys insufferable snob of a fiancée only solidifies Tessas determination to keep her true identity a secret. Yet, after a chance meeting with the handsome Englishman, Tessas reserve begins to melt, and she starts to wonder if its not too late for a fairytale ending?
