Cinderella wears a new kind of shoe....plus a book giveaway

Today, we're featuring Cinderella Screwed Me Over by Cindi Madsen. The cover alone is enough to draw us in, with it's fun, chick lit appeal. Entangled Publishing has one copy to share with a lucky US reader!

Synopsis:
Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She's sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she's happy about it. Really. Or at least she was...until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she's culled from her years spent with so-called “princes,” and starting something with Jake would break all of them.

Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn’t fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?

Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.

About the author:
Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children. She is the author of YA novels All the Broken Pieces and Demons of the Sun, bestselling short romance Falling for Her FiancĂ© and the women's fiction novel Cinderella Screwed Me Over.

Excerpt:
Just before we reached the door, Jake turned and wrapped his arms around my waist. “You know, you forced me to watch a horrible movie—which you slept through—and I still had a good time. You know what that means, right?”
I tipped onto my toes and kissed his perfect lips, one kiss to hold onto tonight. Another to get me through the hours until I could see him again. “That pouting works better than I thought?”
Jake smiled, then his expression turned serious. The way his eyes were boring into mine somehow sent both heat and nerves through my stomach. “I want to tell you something, but I’m afraid it’ll freak you out.”
I swallowed, the gesture taking a lot more effort than usual. I suspected it might include the L-word, and he was right about it freaking me out. Things were finally easy between us again, and I didn’t want to step into the dangerous, serious zone. “Then you better not say it.”
He pulled me closer, our hips bumping together, and covered my mouth with his. As tired as I was a few seconds ago, every part of me was suddenly very alert. He slid a hand under my shirt, his fingertips stroking my bare back. I bit lightly at his bottom lip. He groaned and crushed me to him. Then he thrust his tongue in to meet mine, kissing me so deeply the room spun.
I clung onto him, losing myself in the moment, wanting to drag him to my bedroom but knowing I couldn’t yet. For some reason...I was having trouble remembering it right now. I broke the kiss and worked on getting air back into my lungs.
Jake blew out his breath. He raked a hand through his hair, making it messy. He looked so hot I had to work at holding back my surging hormones. “Good night,” he said, his voice husky. Then he shot me a roguish smile that sent desire burning through my veins. “Sweet dreams.”
Oh, I was pretty sure my dreams would be featuring him tonight. And they’d probably be more dirty than sweet.

I still own my best pair of shoes. It's a pair of suede booties by Sam Edelman. The heels are covered with spikes. I got them a couple years ago. I wanted them so bad and saved back for them. The first time I wore them for a long period of time, it was to a mall. I had to stop at the foot massage place for relief because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to walk to the car. My feet were really sore. :(

I really never wear shoes other than sneakers or sandals. My favorite are a pair of light brown New Balance sneakers from last year.

I have a pair of Naturalizer slip-ons that are the most comfortable shoe I ever wore. They are great for days I am going to be on my feet a lot.

My favorite pair of shoes is my new Nike lunarglide. They are awesome! I hate wearing shoes & these are so light it's like they are barely there.

I had a pair of navy blue deck shoes that I loved when I was in my 20's.

It’s ironic to read this question as I was just discussing shoes with my son. He has inherited his Mom’s high arches which means we both need a good arch support in our shoes. When I was working, I wore a molded arch support in my shoes, but now I’m retired and living in Florida so I find myself in flip flops most of the time. I first bought a couple pairs of flip flops from Bath and Body Works but found them to be very expensive. When I discovered a knock-off at K-Mart for a lot less, I bought a number of pairs. Sadly, they stopped carrying them. But they last forever. I just throw them in the washer and dry them on the lanai for an hour or two and they’re ready to go. Love these shoes!

I still have a pair of Payless shoes that I have owned for 13 years. they are amazing, but close to their end of their life. It will be a sad sad day when they are no longer with me.

I have a pair of Corso Como red heels that my mom bought me for Christmas a couple of years ago. They're uncomfortable, but GORGEOUS!
