Un soir, dans les rues de Washington, Harper, 17 ans, est témoin d'une tentative d'enlèvement. Faisant fi du danger, la jeune femme, partiellement handicapée, s'interpose. Mais le kidnappeur lâche sa première proie et, après avoir maîtrisé Harper, l'emmène avec lui...
D'un coup de baguette magique, ou presque, Harper bascule dans un autre monde. Elle découvre un lieu qui a tout du château de conte de fées : orchestre sans musiciens, cuisine enchantée et, bien sûr, prince beau et énigmatique. Prince maudit, en vérité.
Coincé dans un automne éternel, le prince Rhen cherche à débarrasser son peuple d'une créature sanguinaire. C'est pour briser le sort qu'il ordonne au commandant Grey d'enlever des jeunes femmes, saison après saison... Mais ce qu'il ne dit pas, c'est qu'il est lui-même ce monstre assoiffé de sang. Pour rompre la malédiction, il doit se faire aimer avant le début de l'hiver, avant qu'il ne se remette à tuer... Rien de plus aisé, en apparence, pour ce jeune homme séduisant. Pourtant, aucune des centaines de jeunes femmes avant Harper n'a succombé à son charme.
Deux lycéens qui auraient pu ne jamais se croiser.

Rev et Emma ne se sont jamais vus que de loin.
Pourtant, le hasard les réunit, un soir.
Petit à petit, les deux ados blessés s'apprivoisent,
et, chaque jour, partagent leurs doutes et leurs peines.
Malheureusement, ce moment de grâce ne pouvait pas durer.
Rev est parti rendre visite à son père, qui a refait surface.

elle s'adresse à la mauvaise personne - un garçon
qui fréquente le jeu vidéo en ligne qu'elle a créé pour s'évader.
Rev rejoindra-t-il Emma à temps pour la sauver ?
