An Unwanted Life

An Unwanted Life

by Suzi Wieland




A Down the Twisted Path Story
-- a new spin on an olde tale --

Thrust into a life she did not want...

Being the eldest child in a royal family, Vittoria looks forward to one day ruling her kingdom. She has accepted that as princess, she might not marry for love, but her father increasingly applies pressure to marry men whom she despises, but are from acceptable families, and he turns away any slightly decent man.

A sleeping spell cast by a rogue enchantress steals away a year of her life, but a kiss from her supposed true love, a prince from a distant land, removes the spell, and she awakens to find she is now promised in marriage to the man. After getting to know the arrogant prince, she isn't sure she'll ever come to love him, and she dreads the day she is forced to move to his lands, where they will rule together.

But her country has fallen into turmoil, and nobody knows if the enchantress was working on her own or if she colluded with the Resistance, a violent group opposed to the king and his policies. Vittoria has one month left before she has to leave the country she loves, but her life is still in danger, and as she searches for answers, she must decide whom she can trust and whom she can't.

About the Author

Reading has always been a big part of Suzi’s life. She even won the most-pages-read award a few times in her junior high English class, many years ago. She started several writing projects as a kid but never actually finished anything, and then she took a big break from writing that lasted well into adulthood.

She’s written in a variety of genres, including horror, thriller, and women’s fiction, and has even dipped into fantasy slightly with her fairy tale retellings. She will also begin publishing some of her contemporary young adult stories in the spring 2019 under the name Suzi Drew.

Her non-writing life includes her family and friends, her sweet and fluffy dog, and an awesome job editing with CookieLynn Publishing. (Oh wait, that’s still a part of writing. Seems she can’t get away from the written word!)
