Xander's Curse (Book Two in the Cursed Serie...
Upon the attempt on his brother's life, Xander was cursed to remain within the walls of his mansion forever. Damien's cold outer shell has returned, but Cyan's large heart remains. While the two of them try to jointly rule the kingdom, the threat of Rogues is as prevalent as ever. When they overthrow the castle, Damien is taken as a prisoner of war, and Cyan is offered a deal. She has two paths to take, her head and her heart. Unfortunately, she's never been good at following either of them.
