One simple choice can change your life forever…
Left penniless by her father’s death, Rose-Red lives in a cottage in the woods outside a small, unimportant village along with her twin sister and mother. Life seems small and unimportant too, right up until the night a very special, hairy visitor knocks on their door.
They make the decision to invite him in, and find they’ve been unwittingly pulled into a new world of money, drama, high society…and dangerous curses. When Rose’s family is in danger and she can no longer tell her friends and her enemies apart, she’s got no choice but to turn to the one person she swore she’d never ask for help.
But when their whole kingdom is at stake, is the challenge too much for either of them to handle?
Thwarted romance, treasure, royals and a very aggressive pet goose… The full, untold story of Rose-Red is a world away from any fairytale you’ve ever heard.
A standalone novel.
About the Author
M. Marinan is comfortably located in Wellington, New Zealand: a city that ‘you can’t beat on a fine day’. (Disclaimer: there aren’t that many fine days, but she’s still there.) She loves stories with adventure, drama and a happy ending, and writes in the same vein. She also likes beautiful things, nice people and carefully created art – the sort that looks as though it took effort, not like a toddler painted it with a brush stuck to their forehead. She also illustrates all her own work. It’s fun, she knows the characters...and she’s a bit cheap. Thanks to Massey University for making her feel qualified to publish her own work (and for giving her a student debt that will follow her into her old age. It was worth it).
