Publisher's Summary

Louise Vandercourt lives in a modern-day castle, but she does not believe in fairy tales nor the silly ideas of love that are associated with them. However, she does believe in the power of money and knows it can buy her anything, including the beauty who walks by her property every day. No one tells Louise "No", and no matter what the cost, Louise will have her beauty by her side forever. 

Though life seems to be at its worst, Adara Monroe still believes in fairy-tale endings, and the majestic castle not far from her home may be the very place where it could happen. Love, laughter, and happily ever afters, all these things must be so close....

When a series of events forces Adara to reside in the castle, she soon realizes that not all fairy tales are filled with happiness and princesses full of love. In fact, some are cursed with darkness and a very cruel beast. 

In order for Adara to have the happily ever after she has always desired, she must find a way to break the curse of the castle and the curse of the one who has taken hold of her as well.  

Contains mature themes.

Mixed feelings

The author did such a good job at turning Louise into a true beastly and vile person that I had a really hard time hoping for a happy ending. She is a garbage human for most of the book. Yes, she has a change of heart and realizes her wicked ways were morally reprehensible but it was not enough for me, I pretty much hated her too much by that point and I am not nearly as forgiving as Sophie or Adara. I stuck it out to the end because the narrator did such a good job.

Wow!!!

There’s nothing more to say! I’m so glad I decided to leave my comfort zone and try this. Well written story!
I say all fairy tale lovers should give this a try.
