ADD IT ON GOODREADS!
The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince . . . but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums.

New York City, 1899. Clara Stole, the mayor's ever-proper daughter, leads a double life. Since her mother's murder, she has secretly trained in self-defense with the mysterious Drosselmeyer.

Then, on Christmas Eve, disaster strikes.

Her home is destroyed, her father abducted--by beings distinctly not human. To find him, Clara journeys to the war-ravaged land of Cane. Her only companion is the dethroned prince Nicholas, bound by a wicked curse. If they're to survive, Clara has no choice but to trust him, but his haunted eyes burn with secrets--and a need she can't define.

With the dangerous, seductive faery queen Anise hunting them, Clara soon realizes she won't leave Cane unscathed--if she leaves at all.

WHY I'M WAITING...

I love books that are set in the past, have curses, and that first sentence is a hooker XP I like it when prim & proper girls get to change into strong main characters in books, so this one got me. Plus there is dethroned Prince I wanna meet ;P It sounds dark, riveting, dangerous, has an uber GORGEOUS COVER, and I can't wait no more!
