The Girl with the
An epic fairy tale about a girl cursed at birth by a wizard, and promised to a dark prince in the kingdom of Sirus, a star. Damien's heart is black but not as dark as his brother, Lucifer. Lucifer wants her. It was the year two thousand, a time when witches, wizards, and demons could enter the earth and wreak havoc. That's when Stephanie Stratford, the privileged daugher of Judge Daniel Stratford found the black book written by a feathered pen. When she opens the book the curse is unleashed. Bewitched by the book, and mesmorized by a picture of the dark prince, Stephanie's fairy tale life changes drastically. Demons are released when her star-crossed love, Thomas Shrock, attempts to break the curse with an exorcism. Sawyer Rhodes, a handsome Mennonite rogue adds fuel to the fire when he saves her from certain death. And Richard Cooper, a handsome ruthless attorney, muddies the waters. He's powerful, but not more powerful than the wizard's curse. When Stephanie is cast into the eighteenth century at Ludwig Castle, her handmaiden tells her she must bend to Damien's demands or risk being flogged and thrown into the dungeon. Danger lurks in the castle. Bella, Damien's wench, Bella Franz, overcome by jealousy threatens to poison her. The choice Stephanie makes at the Masquerade will determine her fate. There's no way out...unless she chooses...
