Publisher's Summary

In Arcadia, winter has no heart.

I make magic dresses for a living. I'm not rich or pretty enough to wear them, but I love what I do, working out of my family's shop on Carnaby Street in London - until the fae show up.

It's a straight-up kidnapping, and before I know it, I'm brought to this wintry place of cold hearts and beautiful nightmares, but that's not the worst part.

The worst part is, they think I'm fae, and I'm supposed to participate in some competition against a host of other women who have been training their whole lives for this. The prize? The winner is to marry the prince.

On the surface that sounds almost like a fairy tale, only this competition is brutal and bloody, and the prince is the jerk who kidnapped me. I can't get too close to him or he'll know I'm not fae, and then I'm dead. But I want to get close to him. His body burns with the fire of a cold star, and I'm drawn to him.

I need to fight the pull and survive long enough to find a way out of here, but these winter fae won't make that easy.

Contains mature themes.

Great Narration & Interesting Story So Far

If you enjoy a story with some mystery, a slow-burn romance, and a female lead that grows in strength - this is a great one.

Really enjoyable

Was having a bit of a reading/audio dry spell and couldn’t seem to find anything I wanted to listen/read, but then I came across this book. It’s actually really enjoyable! The world building was good maybe needed a bit more details on it but was good enough to be able to imagine the scenery. The main character was well thought through and a very likeable character, wasn’t annoying, stupid or overly confident like some of the characters from similar storylines. The narrator had a lovely clear and easy to listen to voice She really did make the character come alive.
All in all I really loved it and have actually went and brought the other two books. Looking forward to how this story is going to develop :)

A good read

While the book is only a short read (listen) I found myself engaged and really enjoyed the story. I particularly like that the author has chosen to to develop the side characters and focused on building the story rather than just focusing on the love interest and romance. Overall really loved this book!
