ONCE UPON A TIME in a world much like our own lived a willful but kind princess named Catherine. Little does she know, her life is about to change forever. First, her father announces her secret
betrothal. Second, on the eve of her wedding, Catherine is whisked away from her home. Her kidnapper wants something from her, needs it, yet she has no idea what it is. Could this rogue truly want
the princess for a mere ransom? Or is there something more to the kidnapping? Something secret she must uncover... like the face he hides behind his mask? Like the meaning behind the strange dreams
that plague her each night of a past that seems too real? Only time will tell…
