A cynical Los Angeles artist reluctantly pet-sits her young niece's frog and discovers magic in the terrarium - in the form of a sexy enchanted prince.

What a delightful little tale! I was looking for something short to fill a gap in my afternoon before picking kids up and came across this in my Kindle. I'm so glad I did too :)
It's a nice gap filler novelette - only 45 pages and 12K words - but a wonderful way to spend part of an afternoon.
Sofia is an artist who has closed herself off to the world and particularly men. Her paintings are detailed in their landscapes with people blurry and almost non-existent. Her seven-year-old niece needs her frog pet-sat while she's on holidays. Little does she know, her conversations with the frog and an innocent kiss to his head will turn her world around and break the walls around her heart.
Alexander is a prince from two-hundred years ago who didn't want to marry a girl with the personality of a fence post (loved that description!) and is rewarded for his honesty by being transformed into a frog by her mother, a witch. He wants his princess to one with wit and personality. After two centuries as a frog, he finally finds his princess.
Fill a gap in your day and grab this book. It's sweet and short and you'll love the mini escape from reality to enjoy some magic.
