What if Briar Rose and Aurora were two different people—one the princess, the other her decoy—and the prince loved no one but himself?
In this retelling of Sleeping Beauty, the kingdom is precariously close to falling into treacherous hands. The princess, who grew up as Briar Rose, is determined to keep her father’s kingdom from her aunt, but she wants to also be fair to her engagement to the prince—despite having only just met him.
Her friends are certain she’s in greater danger than she thinks, though, and in the end, it’s up to a newspaper journalist and the son of a con-man to save the princess from a swift and memorable death. All they have to do is make sure the real princess never pricks her finger on a spindle.
How hard could that be?
The book is currently available at Goodreads, Google Books, and Google Play (you can just read the free “sample,” which is the entire novel, if you do not wish to put any credit card information into their system).
Enjoy, and please review or rate it once you finish reading. Thanks!
