Damsel by Stephanie Bissette-Roark
Cassandra never wanted to return to that old, converted barn atop the hill. But when her estranged father leaves it all to her in his will, she journeys home to discover if any part of her broken past still remains. She didn’t expect to find Ethan Bailey waiting for her, a strange man who kindles in her powerful—but unwanted—feelings of familiarity. When a treasured childhood toy transports her into an imaginary world, Cassandra will come face-to-face with a man that looks just like Ethan, but whose medieval garb tells a different story. As the lines between make-believe and reality blur, will her new companion bring healing love and open her heart in the real world or will the monster of her past consume her?
