Now available in paperback from Wendy Higgins, author of the Sweet Evil series, the New York Times bestselling The Great Hunt reimagines the Brothers Grimm fairy tale "The Singing Bone" in a dramatic, romance-filled fantasy with rugged hunters, romantic tension, and a princess willing to risk all to save her kingdom. When a monstrous beast attacks in Eurona, desperate measures must be taken.
The king sends a proclamation to the best and bravest hunters: whoever kills the creature will win the hand of his daughter Princess Aerity.
The princess recognizes her duty but cannot bear the idea of marrying a stranger-she was meant to marry for love-until a brooding local hunter, Paxton Seabolt, catches her attention. And while there's no denying the fiery chemistry between them, Princess Aerity feels that Paxton's mysteriousness is foreboding, maybe even dangerous. Paxton is not the marrying type. Nor does he care much for spoiled royals and their arcane laws.
He is determined to keep his focus on the task at hand-ridding the kingdom of the beast-but the princess continues to surprise him, and the secrets he's buried begin to surface against his wishes.
