Can a heart wrapped in stone discover the true meaning of love?

A story from The Perfect Gift

In 1507 France, Comtesse Amara de la Cortese wasn’t a very nice person. She was a hard-hearted ruler who thought nothing of imprisoning beggars and ordering their children sold. Enter Saint Nicholas, whose quest is to protect the young. As punishment, he turned Amara into a statue—a prison of stone to match her heart of stone.

But Saint Nicholas believes in redemption, so every 50 years he frees her for 48 hours and gives her one of ten chances to answer one apparently simple question: What is the true meaning of love?

Ten chances. One question. Sounds simple. But Amara, whose heart is stunted by a loveless past, has failed each time. Now, on her very last shot at lifting the curse, she finds herself in present-day Manhattan. She meets six-year-old Samantha, who totally believes her fantastic story, and her doctor dad, Nick, who totally doesn’t.

Despite the deadline hanging over her head, Amara is determined to enjoy her last taste of freedom. With Nick and Sami, she explores New York’s unique style of Christmas. She also finds herself falling in love.

Then, in a flash, time runs out in a way none of them imagined. The pressure’s on for Amara to find the answer in her newly melted heart—or return forever to her prison of stone.

Meet the Author

If someone tried, they’d have trouble pigeon-holing Stacia. But that’s good news for this author – she doesn’t mind her numerous roles of writer, artist, photographer, mom, grandmother, home remodeler, designer, gardener, business woman. They all bring out different aspects of her, and offer diverse challenges. Each facet of her life is filled to the brim.

This is all the result of one simple truth about Stacia: “I don’t sit still well.”

She lays the blame fully on the creative monster hidden inside her that demands equal time, craves to create and experiment. “Sometimes that creature screams for attention. I’m stuck in its wake, trying to get all the ideas out in sort of tangible form. Other times, it’s very, very silent. Those times, I can honestly say, are very boring to me.”

To Stacia, words are a melody, a catharsis, a way to let the creative soul inside her sing out. Every story she writes, every little twist that comes to her mind, is an exciting journey that she loves to share with others. She’s not stuck on any one particular genre. She loves comedies and pure romances; she can become lost in a dramatic situation, and the thought of writing a fantasy – without the boundaries of reality – causes her already crazy imagination to soar. Being published is very gratifying for her. “I know now that someone else will go along for the ride. I also know that it’s going to be one hell of a journey.”
