Romance is not in Dulcie's plans when she promises to attend her best friend's royal wedding in Gullandria. But after meeting the tragically scarred Prince Valbrand, she falls instantly in love.

Although Dulcie captivates him, Valbrand can offer her no future. Love stands little chance in his world, overruled by the burden of royal duty and unfinished business—Valbrand still seeks revenge on those who scarred his body and soul.

When kidnappers threaten Dulcie, a mysterious masked man rides to her rescue. Who is this dark hero? A midnight assignation with her rescuer unveils Valbrand as Dulcie's brave defender, and they begin a passionate affair, knowing it must end when Dulcie returns home.

Move over Cinderella and Prince Charming! Dulcie and Prince Valbrand know how to set fire to a fairy-tale romance.
