If saying 'I love you' meant death, would you still say it?Excerpt
The Wilted Rose, of faery-tale and folklore, is a pirate ship filled with unfortunate souls-each forbidden to love. One such soul is Valencia 'Lennie' Roux. Raised in a brothel and an heir to a curse; Lennie never expected to pique the interest of any man. Yet with the arrival of vivid-eyed Nathaniel, she is torn between wanting to know him better and fearing what that knowledge would mean.
With Nathaniel bringing the crew's total to six, the Wilted Rose sets off in search of the remaining two heirs. They hope that in reuniting, they will convince the faery Sorceress responsible for the curse, to end it. However lurking beneath the water is a long standing enemy of the Wilted Rose; who is determined to thwart their quest and bring down its leaders.
Together the eight heirs fight for survival, friendship and love.
That surely wasn't me, looking back from the glass. I couldn't stop staring. Although I'd spent many nights in front of the mirror, before I'd been cursed there was no resemblance between the woman in the reflection I saw now, to the one I'd once known. My skin was flushed by nature, rather than powder or rouge and my mismatched eyes were bright with nerves and excitement. I caught Bess smiling behind me and returned it with shyness. Looking away from the reflection, I smoothed imaginary creases in the beautiful dress that curved my figure.
The fit was good, like it had been tailored just for me. The cut made me sit straighter with my head higher. I felt regal and refined- nothing like the girl in britches and braces.
"That dress was kept for Miss Kitty, but you wear it better than she ever would.
