Tess Andrews lacked self-confidence. She believed she was ‘Plain-Jane’. Her last date ended before it began when he asked if she’d set him up with one of her model clients. Tess owned a small employment agency. Some of her clients were models, which only made her insecurities worse.
Internationally-famous model photographer, Parker Walsh, always left Tess speechless and in a rush to run and hide. She attempted to spark up a conversation but with no success. Her business dealings were even dealt with through his assistant.
Her savior—Girls Night; once a week Tess got together with her friends who were all in similar situations with no luck in love. One night they wished on a magical pendant to be that perfect girl they would like to see in the mirror. They wake up in their ‘Cinderella Bodies’ – sexy and better looking but they only have until midnight to make the most of it.
Her ‘Cinderella Body’ boosts her confidence to invite Parker to lunch. He surprises her with an invite to his charity fashion show. Tess has everything for her magical night – her Prince, the dress, the shoes but she worries when the clock strikes twelve if he’ll like the ‘real’ her.
“Oh yes Miss Tess, this definitely cries out red carpet. Or should I say runway for you.”
Tess laughed. He thinks I’m one of the models. Now there’s a compliment or one damn-good sales person.
“I’m not a model. I run an employment agency. Parker is one of my clients. I refer models to him.” Tess laughed and Franc joined in.
“I assumed. How silly of me? Parker sends models to me for special occasions. He’s never sent a special someone. Is this your first date? Or is it just business” Franc teased with a wink.
“Our second date actually if you count lunch today.” Tess shrugged.
“Well he is one lucky man.” Franc turned Tess so she could she herself in the mirror.
She smiled. She never dreamed she’d be wearing a dress this beautiful. Franc was right. She felt like she’d been wrapped in silk as the light-weight material touched her skin. The bodice gave just enough of a peak of her cleavage. I take back what I said to Cami about Cinderella. I don’t know if I’ll get the happily-ever-after but I am certain I’m going to have one magical night.
