Their hearts, while still pure, adored those childhood fairy tales of royal princesses and true love’s first kiss, but their villainous minds craved danger and sinister delights—as did many of the readers in Romancelandia. And so these authors came together, each one choosing a beloved tale they’d manipulate and blanket in darkness. How vastly will fates change? Will maleficence reign supreme? Is true love’s first kiss enough to save their souls?
Will he carry out his orders to kill? Or can she be the key to discovering who he really is?
