“Tanya Anne Crosby has created her own mythology, where history and legend collide.” — Whiskey & Wit Book Reviews
Long before there was a Winter King, there was a Summer Queen—Gwendolyn of Cornwall, a fierce warrior princess who raised an army to unite nations.
Said to be a changeling child left to the King and Queen of Cornwall, Gwen is “blessed” in her cradle with three Fae gifts: a prophecy for her future, a gift of “Reflection,” and a golden mane—literally. Every lock of her hair will turn to gold, only provided
’tis cut by her one true love.
But no one understands more than Gwendolyn that her blessings are truly curses. Any man who gazes upon her will only see his own heart reflected in her countenance, and depending upon his virtue, she is either the loveliest woman in all the land… or the most hideous. It’s a cruel jest of the capricious Fae, for unless a man’s heart is true, Gwendolyn is destined to be coveted for her crown, yet despised for her face.
To make matters worse, Gwendolyn’s aging and ailing father is desperate for an alliance with Brutus of Loegria. “The Romans are coming,” and according to the Goldenchild Prophecy, only by uniting their Draig banners can they stem the Red Tide.
Offered to Brutus’s ambitious son, Prince Locrinus, Gwendolyn’s heart is nevertheless tempted by a mysterious, maddening half-blood Fae whom she can never wed if she is to fulfill her crib side prophecy.
