Beauty's Kiss (Taming of the Sheenans #2) by Jane Porter

This was a cute short story centered around Valentine's Day. The story takes place in Marietta, Montana, a nice small town. I loved this story because it's part of what I have come to dub the Marietta Series; various talented authors write stories that have characters intertwining with each other in the town of Marietta. It's really great because when you read a story, you always go "I wonder what happened to ..." and because the stories continue, you get some questions answered.

Anyway, Taylor is the new librarian in Marietta, she's a quiet, responsible person trying to find her place in the world.

Troy is Marietta's golden boy; he's smart, talented and according to the whole town the best looking guy ever.

When he needs a date to the Valentine's Day ball, his friend Jane decides to play matchmaker and set him up with the new librarian. Taylor at first seems determined to keep him at arms length and Troy is intrigued.

The story almost has a Cinderella like feel, minus the wicked step-mother and sisters. I only wish it had been longer and I do hope to see more of Taylor and Troy in other Marietta titles.
