St. Paul, Minnesota, 1946:
When Shannon was a child, she listened as her father read stories of a motherless princess who ventured far from the kingdom, connected to home by the magic of a fine, silver thread. As a young woman, Shannon knows she is neither a princess nor an adventuress - that would be her sister, Eliza. But when Shannon barely survives a year in quarantine for TB, losing any hope of motherhood herself, and when Eliza runs away after a brutal attack, the fairy tale comes to life. On her journey to bring Eliza home, Shannon discovers a secret child, the love of a good man, and the true meaning of family remade. But when all is said and done, is the bond between sisters strong enough to save Eliza?

My life has been destroyed by two men. One, my hero. The other, my worst nightmare.
I taste the bitterness of betrayal every day as my body bleeds, suffering the touch of my enemy. It's a fate chosen for me by others and it's not something I can escape. At least, not yet.
I'm determined to survive, my need for vengeance feeding me. I'll play this game until every piece is in place so I can break them all.
My plan includes Rylan Wolfe, the FBI agent eager to strike a deal. I give him the information he needs to take down a criminal threat, and he gives me the satisfaction of bringing my enemies to their knees.
But my hunger for justice won't be sated until they've burned to ash. And for my plan to succeed I have no choice but to deceive Rylan -- the one man who manages to thaw the ice in my veins.
In the end I'll have to decide whether the revenge I've dreamt of for so long is worth losing the man who might be able to free my heart.
