About This Book
A young prince crippled by a witch—
When Fredrico watches his cruel family mourn his false death and
announce to the kingdom their cursed prince has died, is the day he
truly embraces his new life and new name Rumplestiltskin. How could
he be known by anything else? —His skin is completely rumpled and
stilted now. He hides away from the king and queen and grows up as a
crippled servant in the castle.
Years later, his younger brother, Marcus, becomes king and humors
Aubrynn’s father when he boasts that his daughter can turn straw into
gold. Intrigued Marcus locks the distraught maiden in a tower and
declares to the kingdom that if she can transform the straw, he will
marry her, but if she cannot he will kill her father.
Rumplestiltskin is determined to help Aubrynn save her father and
marry the king. Now, if only he can remember to keep his real
identity a secret and not fall in love with her himself…
