Standing Up For Grace

Here’s a side story for those of you who read Wickedly Charming. Standing Up For Grace shows what really happened when Imperia and Grace went to their new school.  If you haven’t yet read Wickedly Charming, you can still read Standing Up For Grace since the story does stand alone.

Here’s the cover, the book’s description, and ordering information.

Imperia Encanto, the oldest daughter of Prince Charming and Cinderella, can’t stop the girls at her exclusive private school from picking on her sister Grace. In her home Kingdom, Princess Imperia merely has to frown and everyone does her bidding. But in Beverly Hills, no one knows she’s a princess. No one believes fairy tales are real and Imperia’s not allowed to tell them.

Too young to have magic, unable to charm like her father does, Imperia relies on something strictly American—her fists. But the punch heard round Los Angeles only makes matters worse. Imperia must make things right—even if she doesn’t want to.

Standing Up For Grace, the first Imperia Encanto adventure, showcases the difference between our world and the fairy tale world. The adventure stands alone, but fans of Kristine Grayson’s novel, Wickedly Charming, will note that this story takes place while the divorced Prince Charming falls in love—proving once again that there’s a difference between what kids tell their parents and what actually happens. Just like there’s a difference between the fairy tale and the story behind it.

Available on for $2.99 on Kindle, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, and in other e-bookstores.  A trade paper edition will appear in the Fall. If you would like to read an excerpt, click here.
