Beth Ciotta. Once upon a time someone asked me, "Why do you think you were put on this earth?" I answered, "To make people happy." I guess that explains why I've spent more than twenty-five years in the entertainment industry, singing, acting, and dancing my heart out hoping to brighten someone's day. A few years ago I discovered a new way to bring joy; storytelling. Earning a publishing contract was, like a standing ovation, the ultimate rush.

In addition to writing contemporary and historical romances as Beth Ciotta, I also write paranormal romances with Cynthia Klimback as CB Scott. It has been an inspiring and wondrous journey, and the adventure has only just begun!

About This Book
Overview

The Princess is in danger . . .

Beloved storyteller to hundreds of children, Lulu Ross champions non-violence. Just her luck, she’s tiara over glass slippers for a man who carries a gun.

Professional bodyguard Colin Murphy is s-e-x-y. Too bad he’s delusional. Who would want to hurt Princess Charming—a low-profile, goody-two-shoes who performs as a storybook character at children’s birthday parties? Surely the sexy gifts from a secret admirer are meant for her sister, a bombshell wannabe action-star. Or are they?

Murphy is determined to protect Lulu . . . whether she likes it or not. Perpetually cheerful and absurdly trusting, the locally famous kiddy-heroine refuses to believe she’s in danger.

Tipped off by the FBI, Murphy knows otherwise, but convincing Lulu that she’s the fantasy target of a mobster’s fixation is like trying to hang shades on the sun. Contending with a woman who favors bubblegum lip gloss and a pink poodle purse becomes an exercise in fascination and frustration for the world-weary protection specialist; almost as frustrating as resisting her whimsical charm.
