The Fairy Tale Bride (Once Upon a Wedding) by Kelly McClymer
Miranda Fenster was known as the Fairy Tale Miss during the one disastrous London season that convinced her she would never have a happily-ever-after. But when her brother's love match is thwarted by the impossibly proper Duke of Kerstone, Miranda sets off to convince the duke to champion her brother's cause for love. Unfortunately, he is too proper to consider love a suitable reason for marriage, and too proper not to marry Miranda when they find themselves compromised. Now, Miranda has a second chance for happily-ever-after, if she can uncover her new husband's darkest secret. Originally published by Kensington Zebra Ballad, October 2000.
"One of the most thrilling romances I have read recently, The Fairy Tale Bride will keep you turning the pages in eager anticipation."
--B.S. Andrews, Amazon Reviewer
"Ms. McClymer offers us a wonderfully original tale laced with wonderful, deeply drawn characters and a romance that makes you hold your breathe. Her writing puts me in mind of Amanda Quick and Lynn Kurland. I think that I have found a new favorite author."

Kelly McClymer started out writing plays for her sister to perform for their parents. She branched out to writing for her high school newspaper, and then began a futile attempt to write science fiction. At last, with her historical romance novels, she achieved the goal of published author. And then, in a leap of faith, she left romance for the Young Adult world of fantasy and witchcraft. She may be secretly working her way back to science fiction, but mum’s the word on that one.
