Melanie Dickerson, New York Times bestselling author, presents a magical retelling of a classic fairy tale.
Aladdin grew up alone, from the streets of the Holy Land, to an orphanage in a distant kingdom. Everything changes for him the day he meets Kristyn. Her father is the duke of Hagenheim, and her mother is the patroness of the orphanage where he lives. Kristyn belongs to the most powerful family in the land, and is way out of Aladdin's league. Despite their different upbringings, Aladdan and Kristyn develop a childhood friendship that grows along with them.
Aladdin puts forth the effort to gain a position serving in the duke's house, but it isn't enough to grant him Kristyn's hand in marriage. If he has any hope to change his station in life and feel worthy to marry Kristyn, he must leave Hagenheim and seek his fortune.
Once Aladdin is gone, no one is around to protect Kristyn, and the greedy men eager to take advantage of her father's wealth take notice. Now Aladdin has a few more obstacles to deal with, beyond his rough background. His only hope is to rescue Kristyn and find some way to win her hand in marriage.
