Through The Looking Glass
Once Upon A Time Series
In this sizzling short novel from bestselling author Kay Hooper’s Once Upon a Time series, a free spirit seduces a brooding businessman to save her own personal Wonderland—and finds herself falling for him.
The latest in a long line of eccentrics, Maggie Durant is accustomed to managing mayhem with grace. So when she’s handed the reins of the Wonderland traveling carnival after the untimely and mysterious death of its owner, Maggie embraces the colorful, crazy world as her own. The show must go on, after all. But when the troupe’s effortlessly sexy and painfully straitlaced financier decides to sell the whole three-ring circus, Maggie sets out to win his heart.
Gideon Hughes doesn’t have any issues with clowns or magicians—as long as they make money. The only thing keeping Gideon from pulling up stakes is Maggie. With her shimmering blond hair, emerald eyes, and lithe body, Maggie looks more like a beauty queen than the leader of such a ragtag band. Before long she convinces Gideon to stay the night on carnival grounds, lest he make any rash decisions. A tryst in a circus tent isn’t part of Gideon’s business plan, but with Maggie working her magic, anything seems possible—even love.
