Jenny’s had it with her life. Six siblings in an overstuffed house are enough to drive anyone crazy, and sometimes she dreams of escaping to some fantasy world. When she suddenly wakes up to find herself being kissed by a strange—but very handsome—prince, Jenny knows her life just got a lot more exciting. Now stuck in a medieval land of castles and royalty, when Jenny learns that the queen has agreed to marry her off to the prince, it’s time to take matters into her own hands. She goes on a quest to find out who dragged her to this time while trying to keep from falling in love with either of the boys vying for her attention.
Princess Genevieve has only known life under her mother’s rule. She wants to do more than go to battle or deal with suitors. She wakes to find herself in a new world filled with gadgets, electricity, and moving carriages. She finally has the freedom to be who she wants to be with a family who cares deeply for her and a boy worth any sacrifice. It’s more than everything she always wanted.
As Jenny and Genevieve settle into their new lives, they face an unknown evil which threatens everything they care about and makes them face tough questions—like who they are and what they really want their lives to become.
Jenny woke up to find the most beautiful eyes just inches from her face, a strange boy’s lips pressed against hers.
She shoved him away. “Who are you? Get out!” She leaped off the bed and threw a punch that connected with his mouth and then kicked him in the stomach, getting her foot caught in the hem of her dress. Wait, dress? She looked down. Why was she wearing a dress?
The young man doubled over, holding his stomach, gasping for air. He wiped a drop of blood off his lip with a hand covered in scratches. Where had those come from? “I was simply trying to wake you with a kiss.”
“Wake me? I wasn’t even a—” Jenny stopped short. What was going on? Her pajamas had been traded for a long, fine gown made of what—satin? She hoped no one had actually changed her. It had to be part of this whole strange dream. Her hair fell over her shoulder, and she grabbed on to it. It was usually shorter and kept in a ponytail to stay out of her face. Now it was almost to her waist. She whipped around, taking in the strange scenes woven into the tapestries on the walls. There were statues of women she’d never seen before, and the corners were draped with cobwebs. She didn’t recognize anything in the room. Was this real? Because if this was a dream, it was pretty vivid. She pinched herself and winced at the pain.
