We've all read the fairy tales. We've heard the same take a thousand times. One boy will save one girl. Together they will live happy ever after. This isn't one of those stories. Hayden Cinder's life is almost a fairy tale. A modern day Cinderella, only its her step father calling the shots and she's more than just a maid, she's a slave. Gage Prince lives like a prince, he's got money and power but he's far from being charming. He's tattooed, gorgeous and screws just about anything that walks. These two couldn't be more different. That is until circumstance forces the two together, and sparks a flame. But this isn't a fairy tale. Hayden and Gage won't get the fairy tale ending like in a children's book. Love isn't what the story books want you to believe. As for the ending? Nobody gets an ending like they want it too. After all there isn't always a light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes you have to embrace the darkness.
