About Once Upon A Princess: Land of Dreams
In the rich and fertile land called Montrose, humans and creatures of magic exist together in a complex web of harmony…and deceit.
Willem was created of magic and trapped in the Land of Dreams by a curse in which he shared his gargoyle form with Eduardo. When Eduardo freed himself from the evil spell his jealous half-brother Erokan cast on him, Willem survived and was given a new life by the faeries. Haunted by the duality of his previous existence as well as the woman he and Eduardo both fell in love with, Willem, now a gargoyle shifter, meets the daughter of Lord Montrose. Compassionate, graceful and adamant about marrying for love and not riches, Cicely is far more wondrous than her outside beauty suggests. Suddenly, everything he’s ever wanted is within his grasp. But he isn’t the only man who longs to capture her.
Always second best in his father’s eyes, Erokan seeks to control the land and all who dwell within it. Aware that Cicely descends from the royal line and was hidden away as a child to keep her magical ability a secret, Erokan intends to bend the powerful fire elemental to his will. To succeed, he has only to dominate Willem, still anguished by the curse that trapped him…and easily beguiled by a fair princess.
Cicely knows she possesses magical ability, but her origins are a mystery even to her. She loves her family and her land. Falling in love with the courageous, self-sacrificing Willem may be the key to awakening…or may unleash forces that will separate them forever.
Read an excerpt from Once Upon A Princess: Land of Dreams
“A year ago you used the stars to cast the spell that freed Eduardo. A spell that used the constellation of The Archer, Willem. I think it’s important that you’ll–”
“Lady Agnes! Where are you?”
Startled, Willem turned in the direction of the feminine voice. She was in the doorway, surrounded by bright sunlight. All he saw at first was a silhouette, then movement as she stepped inside.
“Oh, I didn’t know you had someone with you.” She was standing by the candles now, bathed in soft light. Her dark hair fell to her shoulders, framing her face. Her smile sent a shock through him, just as her gaze pinned him to the spot. He’d never seen her before, but there was something about her that was familiar.
“Lady Cicely,” Lady Agnes said. “I was going to visit you later. Let me introduce you to my protégé, Willem. He’s a retired soldier and he’s versed in astronomy.”
“Oh, father will be happy to hear that,” she replied, keeping her eyes on Willem. “He’s quite taken with astronomy these days. I’m not sure why.”
“How convenient that we have someone to assist him, then.” Lady Agnes squeezed his arm. “You haven’t said anything.”
“I’m sorry…I didn’t intend to be rude.” Willem bowed to Cicely. When he straightened up their eyes met again. “I’m very happy to make your acquaintance, Lady Cicely.”
“Happy to meet you too.” She lowered her eyes, then clasped her hands as though she wasn’t quite sure what to do next. “Um…I…maybe I should be getting back.”
“You just got here.” Why had he said that? It had just slipped out.
