Sylvia was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. As soon as she could write, she was writing stories--and not like those of most kids, either…
In search of a lost family heirloom, Alessia Stone travels to an abandoned hotel where her grandmother once lodged. Her goal: to reverse a curse set upon the women in her family. What she discovers is much more than she'd ever anticipated.
James Ryder is drawn to the beautiful woman who enters the roadhouse bar looking for directions to the deserted Palace Grand Hotel. His darker side thirsts for her essence while his soul yearns to protect and enjoy her virtue.
Unwittingly tossed together, the two must survive the dark storm in which the hotel entraps them, and brave the desires that pull them together. Will James come to realize true love really does exist? Will Alessia overcome her fear and acknowledge only she has the ability to break the curse? Or will love forever be a risk of death?
