The Craving in Slumber
There’s the story where the newly returned princess is cursed to sleep until given true love’s kiss, and then there’s the actual one. The one in which Aurora Corsetti, mafia princess, returns after being sent away as a child, to endure a new life of buried secrets, an arranged marriage, and a compassionless family.
Rosen Carrigan, head soldier of the Corsetti family, is tasked with protecting the bratty, mafia princess, who insists on taunting him at every turn. Forbidden gets dangerous when a devious plot nearly takes her away from him, and like that silly fairy tale, Rosen won’t let Aurora go. In the end, not all stories end with a kiss, but rather, in war.
