This isn’t the story I wish it were.
It isn’t a love story.
It isn’t anything close to love.
I am sorry for that.
Please try to see the light in the dark.
Because it is there, hidden and frightened it will always be overshadowed.
In the fading light of dawn Estelle feels the magic set upon her, changing her, allowing her eyes to meet his for the briefest of moments.
Where fingers cannot grasp and lips cannot meet, love still somehow grows.
But what is love if it is based on lies?
Cursed by a creature of legends, Estelle and her love Edmond must find a way to free themselves so they may be together finally.
Of course, not everything is as it seems. In fact very little is.
From the madness in the monastery of the Silent Brothers to the bedroom in the rolling hills where her sister died, Estelle finds herself on a mission for redemption and revenge.
Dressed as a pleasure house whore, she must find a way to repay the blood debt owed to each of her siblings before she can ever escape the curse and rule her lands.
Unfortunately she discovers each tale she is told is a lie and each face holds a place in her heart that she never imagined.
For every bit of truth there is a side she is not told.
Prepare yourself for the fantasy ride you have been waiting for.
Tara Brown weaves a tale meant to mess with your mind and leave you breathless.
If you loved Vengeance or The Roses, you will find yourself pulled in, desperately lost, and left broken with this one as well.
This is a standalone fantasy novel, mature readers recommended.
