From the author of The Hemlock Bay series
comes a new retelling of an old tale...
… Not every Beast is a prince charming at heart and not every Beauty is a maiden just waiting for love...
Calia Thorn has lived her entire life in a small town
sheltered by the Cold King's mountain.
Working day and night to care for her younger siblings,
complete her unending chores, and
please her selfish, lazy mother has left her
with few dreams for her own future.
But then even those meager hopes are taken from her
when the Cold King comes down from his mountain
to demand a new servant. Ungraceful, unladylike, undesired,
and unwanted by even her own family,
Calia is chosen to be sent to the palace.
The Cold King has lived for three hundred years
under a curse imposed by his own father.
With no hope of ever breaking it, he settles for keeping
his heart frozen against any pain- or hope.
When his new servant arrives, she challenges him
in ways no one ever has before,
and sparks fly.
But not every Beast is a prince charming at heart
and not every beauty is a maiden just waiting for love.
Sometimes happily ever after isn't so easy...
