All Blair Miller has ever wanted was to study fashion in New York City. But as one door closed for her, another door opened. A bright and beautiful door that led her straight to a job at celebrity frequented, high end fashion boutique, ATTRAYANT, where she has now worked for years. When an invitation arrives for a masked ball that is being thrown to celebrate a world famous rock band’s new album, Blair finds herself being transformed into Cinderella for the night. When Blair not only falls for Prince of Rock, Hunter but also loses a precious $8,000.00 shoe, she finds herself in possibly the biggest mess of her entire life. How can she reveal who and what she really is to Prince Charming? How can she afford to replace such an expensive shoe? With the help of her two “Fairy God Fathers” who are pushing for her happily ever after…anything could happen.

The Shoe – Author Playlist
Trista could you please share a list of the music you listen to when you write:
When I write I listen to a huge mix. I mean…HUGE. I currently have 2,023 songs that I cycle through on my computer that just go on continuous play while I write. So, I’m going to share some of my absolute favorites!
Teenage Dirt bag by Wheatus - This one is super special to me. My best friend was killed at 17 and this song had came out not too long before and this became our theme song.
Unity by Shinedown - I love everything about this song. The lyrics speak volumes for me.
A Warrior’s Call by Volbeat - This is the ultimate song. If this doesn’t get me pumped, I don’t know what will, haha.
I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry by Volbeat - While I do love the original, there is something about this one that I love. Maybe it’s that guitar… ;)
Starlight by Weezer - A song that brings back some really great memories for me and helps to inspire me.
I’m Glad You Came by We Came As Romans - Another newer cover that speaks to me.
If You Leave by OMD - I’ve loved this song for years and for years it’s brought back good memories. When good things are on my mind, the writing juices flow much better.
Why Part II by Collective Soul - Another one, that, though I have no real reason, it speaks to me.
So Far Away by Avenged Sevenfold - This one makes me think of my friend who was killed. Perfect since this was written for Rev, their drummer who passed too soon. Syn’s guitar solo moves to goose bumps and tears. This one, speaks louder than any of my words could ever. I don’t just hear this song…I feel it…and, that is the most amazing feeling ever.
Enemies by Shinedown - This one is so great for any character that I don’t like, haha!
Wait For Me by Theory Of A Deadman - My husband is deployed and this makes me think of him. I’m waiting. I think this song was written for us military families. If not, they hit the nail on the head.
I’m Sexy And I Know It by LMFAO - Because a time or two ago I weighed over 300 pounds. I’ve lost about 180 pounds (I lost a Backstreet Boy, haha!) and this song just makes me feel good. Again, when I feel good, creative juices really flow.
Carry On My Wayward Son by Kansas - An all time favorite.
Don’t Stop Believing by Journey - Another al time favorite.
Take Me Home Tonight by Hinder - I wasn’t a fan of Hinder until this song. And…WOW.
Hotel California by The Eagles - Come on….do I need to put a reason here? Haha.
Heartache Tonight by The Eagles - Another top favorite.
By the time I reach Camilla’s shop, it’s already open. I sneak inside, arm full of clothes and I hear Christian wailing, “Oh, my God, Blair!” He runs up to me and wraps his arms around me, “I thought you were dead!”
“I’m so sorry!” I cry out, “I don’t know what happened, I just fell asleep.”
I hear Anthony running up behind me, “Blair! Are you okay?”
I nod, “I’m fine. I just fell asleep.”
They both exchange glances and then glare at me, “Fell asleep where?”
My mouth opens and I sigh, “It’s a long story.”
I feel Christian beginning to the Harry Winston necklace, the dress and the shoes.
“Blair, what on Earth are you wearing?” Anthony cries, “This is not a fashion statement.”
I hear a rustling noise and see that Christian is carefully hanging the dress up to be steamed.
“Have a good night?” Anthony winks as I finally catch a glimpse of my hair. Good thing I did wake up before Derek. I give the cow lick a push down and give my head a slight nod.
“Blair!” I hear Christian holler. “Blair, honey where is the other Louboutin?”
“What do you mean?” I ask, “it’s right there.”
He shakes his head, “I have the dress, the necklace and one shoe.”
Anthony laughs, “Blair, honey when we called you Cinderella, we did not mean for you to take that literally.”
My eyes grow wide, “Oh my God,”
“Blair, did you honestly lose a shoe?” Christian asks. “Blair, those are seventy-five hundred dollar shoes!”
I shake my head, “I don’t know. I don’t think so. I grabbed them both when I left.” I stop myself.
“When you left where?” Anthony asks.
“I told you, it’s a long story.” I say as I begin trying to think.
“Did you at least get his number?” Christian asks.
I shake my head as I run my hands down my face, “Oh my God. I’m going to get fired.”
Christian shakes his head, “We’ll pay for the damn things before you get fired. I won’t have it.”
“Blair, honey, what happened last night?” Anthony asks as he’s now standing behind the counter, where Camilla would freak if she ever saw him, and is reading a copy of the New York Post.
“I went to the Hidden Ball, where you two sent me.” I say giving him the side eye.
Anthony shakes his head and laughs as he holds up the copy of the New York Post. I read the headline carefully and then have to read it again.
Huntsmen’s Hidden Release Masquerade a Hit.
Hunter Snags Ball Belle.
There, at the bottom is a photo of Derek and I, in a warm embrace on the dance floor.
“Well, hell, when I said go meet Prince Charming, you went all out.” Christian laughs.
“Oh, my God.” I mumble, sliding to the floor. “Oh, my God.”
