The predator becomes the prey...
For nearly one hundred years, Rosemarie Edenberg has served the black fairies, working tirelessly to wipe the ogre tribe from the earth. But now, the tribe has gathered in London to work a spell that will destroy the scourge of their kind, the woman they call the Briar Rose, the rose of many thorns.
Rose suddenly finds her friends are her foes, the supernatural Ton turned against her, and creatures with not a trace of ogre blood wishing for her death.
Two magnetic men will unite to aid her cause--her Fey advisor, Ambrose, and the vampire, Lord Shenley, an earl of scandalous reputation and even more scandalous appetites. One will deliver her, one will betray her, and both will force her to face her past.
Once, she walked the mists of enchantment, a young girl cursed to sleep one hundred years. But this beauty was not awakened with a kiss, and has never known happiness. With the help of her allies, she may find it yet, but first she must discover the truth behind her own curse before the past destroys not only her life, but the entire city of London.
