Everyone knows the story of Cinderella. The girl who rose from rags to riches with the help of her fairy godmother and lived happily ever after. When the final bell tolled for her, she came out a princess.
However, this isn't her story. This is the story of Ashlin Crest. She had only been one step away before everything went wrong. Her legs turned into fins, and her fiance was stolen right before her eyes by pirates. Determined to keep her happy ending, Ash was quick to chase, but as one lone girl against the fury of the sea, she stood no chance.
Until she came upon the Midnight pirates. This rowdy band of misfits may be an enemy of her kingdom, but they proved to be her only chance at reclaiming her lost love. But even with them, problems continue to arise from the mermaid curse placed upon her to the hotheaded crew member who refuses to let her think love at first sight will ever lead to a happily ever after.
Changes were occurring - both within her and in the world around her. There were only two choices before her: fight on as the woman people saw her as or be swallowed by the raging sea.
