The Sleeping Beauty
by Mercedes Lackey
Heavy is the head—and the eyelids—of the princess who wears the crown…
In Rosamund’s realm, happiness hinges on a few simple beliefs:
For every princess there’s a prince.
The king has ultimate power.
Stepmothers should never be trusted.
And bad things come to those who break with Tradition…
But when Rosa is pursued by a murderous huntsman and then captured by dwarves, her beliefs go up in smoke. Determined to escape and save her kingdom from imminent invasion, she agrees to become the guinea pig in one of her stepmother’s risky incantations—thus falling into a deep, deep sleep.
When awakened by a touchy-feely stranger, Rosa must choose between Tradition and her future…between a host of eligible princes and a handsome, fair-haired outsider. And learn the difference between being a princess and ruling as a queen.
The moral of the story? Sometimes a princess has to create her own happy endings…
