Charming and the Cherry Blossom is Romance of the Year
Writer's Digest


Today was a fairy tale...
I inherited a fortune from a dad I never knew,
And a thoroughly charming guy asked me out.

Unfortunately, my fairy tale could disappear in ninety days...
Because there's an impossible task to complete,
And a greedy cousin plotting against me.

Plus, I'm not your typical fairy tale princess.
I have a secret that might send my charming running,
And threatens my future if the press finds out.

If today was a fairy tale...
Why does my happily ever after look so far out of reach?

From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes a contemporary romance filled with all the magic, hope, and love of a fairy tale plus the slow-burn, old-soul vibe her fans adore. Inspired by Taylor Swift's “Today Was a Fairytale,” this small-town romance is pure escapism.

A full-length, standalone adult romance.

Behind the book

This story made me happy from its inception to its release. I loved every single moment of making it, and even today, if I open it up, it fills my heart. It brought me happiness at a time when my world needed it. I hope the story brings you joy and magic as well.

Elle and Hudson's were inspired by Taylor Swift songs. I had a vision of a woman twirling on a parquet ballroom floor late at night and the man she loved appearing and joining her in a dance. From there, questions and ideas started filling my head.

...what if the woman inherited a mansion from a father she never knew?
...what if the mansion was actually a hidden castle?
...what if she had a secret that prevented her from being able to really open up to anyone?
...what if the hero had a past that only Elle could understand?
...what if the story makes the reader feel like they did the very first time they ever saw a fairy tale?

I'm so honored that readers are calling Charming and the Cherry Blossom their "favorite LJ book" and "one of the best books they've read all year."

My wish is that you find some happily ever after kinds of moments within these pages as well.
