He’s not your average Sleeping Beauty.
Six hundred years ago, Alaric sacrificed himself to save his lakeside village from the encroaching Black Death. Having given his heart and his life-force to protect those he loved, he has since slumbered in a crystal tomb at the bottom of the lake, never waking, always watching over the town as the world moved past him.
Now his centuries-long dreams have turned dark, and the magic spell safeguarding the village has begun to cast a shadow across the land and people he vowed to protect.
She’s not much of a witch.
Raina has never been a particularly good witch. Her spells go awry and her control over elemental forces is tenuous, at best. But she’s certain that her powers could flourish—and she has just the spellbook to prove it … if only someone would translate it for her. Her plans to travel to her family’s ancestral home are thrown into disarray when a magical mishap dumps her into the freezing lake, and right into the arms of a most unusual kind of sleeping beauty.
High in the German Alps, beneath the shining waters of a deep lake, lies a secret an entire town will kill to protect, and questions that only one woman can answer: can a witch’s kiss save the handsome prince from the forces he unleashed long ago—and can she keep her own unruly power from destroying the fragile bond between them?
