About the book:

Happily Ever After ...Or Happily Nevermore? Gisela's childhood was filled with laughter and visits from nobles such as the duke and his young son. But since her father's death, each day has been filled with nothing but servitude to her stepmother. So when Gisela learns the duke's son, Valten---the boy she has daydreamed about for years---is throwing a ball in hopes of finding a wife, she vows to find a way to attend, even if it's only for a taste of a life she'll never have. To her surprise, she catches Valten's eye. Though he is rough around the edges, Gisela finds Valten has completely captured her heart. But other forces are bent on keeping the two from falling further in love, putting Gisela in more danger than she ever imagined.


Why I want to read this book:

I absolutely love Melanie Dickerson's fairy tale books! I've read all but The Fairest Beauty (which I'm hoping to find the time to read soon) and The Captive Maiden looks like it's going to be another wonderful story! I've already pre-ordered my copy (since it's 40% off on Amazon) and now I'm just waiting for it to be published... :)

What's your "Waiting On" Wednesday selection this week?
