Release Blitz for How to Survive a Modern-Day Fairy Tale by Elle Cruz
How to Survive a Modern-Day Fairy Tale
by Elle Cruz is now live!
She didn't believe in fairy tales...until Prince Charming found her.
Claire Ventura is nothing like the poised and perfect heroines she reads about in her favorite romance novels. She's a quirky, people-pleasing bookworm with a loving yet obliviously intrusive family and a passion for cookie decorating—all rolled into a five-foot-two Filipina American fueled by chamomile tea.
Then she meets Nate, billionaire CEO of a global tech company, the modern-day Prince Charming who sweeps her off her feet. Though he does his best to convince Claire that he's genuinely head over heels for her, she knows he'll soon realize she's more underwhelming Plain Jane than jet-setting socialite. And once he meets her family, if their initial questioning doesn't scare him off, then their tendency to decide "what's best for her" certainly will.
Between her whirlwind romance with Nate and her meddlesome family, Claire wishes she had a fairy godmother to guide her. But this is the real world in the twenty-first century, and the only way to get her happily ever after is by grabbing firm hold of what she really wants—and letting her heart be her guide.
Elle Cruz is a writer of steamy contemporary romance. When Elle was a kid, she'd get in trouble on purpose to be sent to her room so she could read all day long. She thanks her lucky stars that her parents never thought to take books away from her when she was grounded. In a way, it was mom and dad's fault for unintentionally cultivating a voracious reader and writer.
After earning her English degree from UC Irvine, Elle eventually went back to school to become a nurse. Apparently she couldn't get enough of learning because she went to grad school to earn her doctorate degree.
Elle is the daughter of immigrants. She is fiercely proud of her background as a second-generation Filipino-American. She is dedicated to carving out a permanent place for POC in mainstream publishing by contributing her voice to the growing list of diverse authors.
Elle lives in Southern California with her supportive husband and two wonderful kids. When she's not writing, she likes to keep her body guessing with her two obsessions: cookies and working out.
