The Twelve Dancing Princesses meets the heady glamor and danger of the Jazz Age…
All Dorothy Perkins wants is to have a good time. She’s wild about dancing, and can’t understand or accept her father’s strictness in forbidding it. Night after night she sneaks out to the Lost Lake House, a glamorous island nightclub rumored to be the front for more than just music and dancing…in spite of an increasingly uneasy feeling that she may be getting into something more than she can handle.
Marshall Kendrick knows the truth behind the Lost Lake House—and bitterly hates his job there. But fear and obligation have him trapped. When a twist of circumstances throws Dorothy and Marshall together one night, it may offer them both a chance at escaping the tangled web of fear and deceit each has woven…if only they are brave enough to take it.

“Foley always writes with beautiful clarity and grace reminiscent of vintage, turn-of-the-century storytelling…the imagery here taps into a vivid world of vintage-movie glamour, of excitement and strangeness, with the lurking undercurrents of peril which every good tale of faerie should have.” ~ Suzannah Rowntree, author of PENDRAGON’S HEIR
“I was captivated at once, and could hardly stop reading…Perhaps it was the dancing, or the mysteriousness and secrets. Or the lovely, flowing writing and the flawless descriptions! I was enraptured. The historical feel. The beauty. It was dazzling for sure.” ~ Shantelle Mary Hannu, author of A DREAM NOT IMAGINED
“This sweetheart of a fairytale…boasts compelling characters made more so with the shifting perspectives and the sense of setting was like continuous motion of Roaring 20s jazz, happiness and spot-on visual cues…Fans of unique fairytales will be swept away.” ~ Finding Wonderland
