Some fairy tales are twisted.
As the daughter of a duke, Lady Annalise Palmer should be living a charmed life. Appearances can be deceiving, though - her father has ensured that her entire life has been filled with nothing but heartache and hardship. Happiness is an elusive emotion, and love is nonexistent. She has no reason to believe she’ll find either.
Ryan Simms, the marquess of Cinderbury, has been alone nearly his whole life. After his father died, he was abandoned by his grandfather and left in the care of his wicked stepmother. From a young age, he learned not to trust a lady and never to fall in love, especially.
They are two lost souls in search of salvation. Together, they can help each other heal, if they can believe in the possibility of happiness, and escape the torment they’ve both suffered and discover an eternal love along the way.
