Heart of Stone
Formula for Fairy Tale Love: 1 adventurous Heroine + 1 tortured-but-noble Hero = Happily-Ever-After
In the ruins of a country destroyed by a curse. Princess Leesa goes looking for a way to help her people. Desperate to find an item of value to trade for supplies, she trespasses into an abandoned palace.
There she meets Willem, a gargoyle who is dreadfully lonely and longing for human companionship. Promising the beautiful Leesa riches, he begs her to stay with him for a time. With so many to provide for, she can't refuse and soon learns that looks can be deceiving.
But there is a steep price to be paid to break the spell that has cursed Willem and bound him to the palace. Leesa's choice offers no second chances: Either she gains back what she's been mourning or she loses everything she's ever wanted…forever.
