Happily Ever After is a total scam, but at least this time the princess is the one in control - until her true love arrives and threatens to ruin the whole scheme.

I'm not who you think I am.

My transformation from a poor, orphaned scullery maid into the enchantingly mysterious lady who snagged the heart of the prince did not happen - as the rumours insist - in a magical metamorphosis of pumpkins and glass slippers.

Instead, with the help of a touchingly tragic past and the some highly illegal spells, my stepsisters and I infiltrated the ball and captured the attention of the prince. I became a princess, secured our fortunes, and ensured we'd all live happily ever after.

But of course, there's always more to the story. Now my magic is running out, war is looming, and a handsome hostage prince - the wrong prince - is distracting me with his magnetic charm and forbidden flirtations. I'm in danger of losing control of the delicate balance I've created . . . and that could prove fatal.

There's so much more riding on this than a crown.

Thief Liar Lady by D.L. Soria

  • 'A dazzlingly magical, thrilling, and inventive take on a beloved classic.' – Lana Harper, New York Times bestselling author of Payback's a Witch.


    'This amazing retelling of Cinderella presents varied magics, a new view of old enemies and royal rule, magical enchantment, and battles between oppressors and the conquered. What a breathtaking view!' – Tamora Pierce


    'Thief Liar Lady is not your mother’s Cinderella story! In D. L. Soria’s delightful novel, Cinderella takes charge of her own destiny and lets nothing - not her stepmother nor her stepsisters nor even her charming prince - stand in her way. This is a most satisfying read!' – Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches
