Lords and Ladies of Hue Castle,
I’m pleased to announce the release date of the much anticipated Once Upon A [Broken] Time.
Excerpts from Once Upon A [Broken] Time
“Ask for anything,” I said, my breath still running wild from her kiss. “Ask for anything, and I’ll lie at your feet.” Her eyes widened with surprise.
“Anything, Bellissima,” I answered, drinking every drop of her beauty. Her lips parted in surprise for me calling her Bellissima. She was, indeed, the most beautiful woman in my world. “Name anything, and I’d bring it for you, but don’t ask me to catch the stars.” I returned a small smile.
“Ah!” she exclaimed. “I’m not craving stars, your Grace, but…” she paused to think. “Chocolate.” I drew my eyebrows, unsure for what she was asking. “I want to eat chocolate.”
I thought for a brief moment, wondering if I had ever heard this name, but I was clueless. “What in the world is that?”
She gave a sweet sigh. “It is something very sweet,” she explained dreamingly, “that melts in your mouth and takes you straight to heaven.”
Tucking a lock of hair behind her ear, I chuckled. “I don’t desire your chocolate, Bellissima, as your taste and how you melt in my arms already takes me straight to heaven.” Before she could say anything in return, I sealed her lips with mine briefly, giving my soul a short trip to heaven. “Where do I get it?”
She sighed again. “In a few centuries.”
“Then we have only each other to stop our cravings,” I nudged my nose with hers.
“You know, you’re too sweet and cheesy sometimes,” she giggled, “as if I’m inside a romance novel.”
“A novel we are writing,” I added.
“You don’t say, your Grace.” She smiled. “Then we have to make sure we have no loopholes in our story.”
“Indeed. Anything else my lady desires that is available in my world?”

All her life, Myra Farrow has been obsessed with medieval castle-and the kings and princes who once inhabited them. When Steve Bernard, a wealthy videogame designer offers her to model for a princess character in his new game, Myra can’t resist his offer to enter the mysterious, colourless, and cursed Hue Castle. But unknown to Myra, her soul is bound to it by blood and sorcery. When she enters the castle’s doors, she awakens dark powers, time travelling through a cursed mirror, torturing her present, and rewriting her future, leaving Steve Bernard with millions of questions.
Edward Hue, the last of the Hue royal bloodline, has never stood in the sunshine, nor felt the rain, or held a living flower. Cursed from birth to live in darkness and bring death to all he touches, he is at the mercy of his cruel, tyrannical father King Stefan, who will not rest until he shatters Edward’s soul and makes his son into a diabolical copy of himself. Edward’s one hope is the mysterious woman, who walks into his life through a cursed mirror, out of his dreams, and introduces him: love.
Will Myra break Edward’s curse and bring him out of the darkness, or destroy him utterly? Will Steve ever be able to finish his game without Myra? Past and future collide in a tale of love, obsession, betrayal, and the hope for redemption.
