A heroine in disguise. A beastly hero. A family betrayed.
Little Gracie Gardner is all grown up and about to have the adventure of a lifetime. When the youngest Gardner sister sets out to seek her fortune, she gets more than she bargained for. For as she steps into the mysterious, primeval forest of Princewood, Gracie enters a realm in which myths and legends take on flesh and blood and where new desires haunt her dreams.
Abandoned in a blizzard and forced to seek shelter in the castle of an enigmatic young man, Gracie has no idea that she will soon fall under his thrall or that, by accepting his sanctuary, she puts herself in deadly jeopardy.
The castle’s young master has a reputation for murder and is burdened by a past shrouded in secrets. As Gracie befriends the beast, she slowly unravels a web of terror spun by a master of deception. Caught up in a dangerous masquerade, Gracie must join forces with a man who is much more than he seems as the ghosts of Princewood’s blood-stained history begin to rise once more.
As Gracie restores the castle to life and reawakens its owner’s humanity, together they will face the darkness which haunts Princewood…as they arm themselves with the power of a love so strong it may even conquer death itself.
Friends-to-lovers has never felt so right in this steamy and suspenseful blending of Beauty and the Beast and Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale.
