SummaryAdd a Summary
Inspired by Lewis Caroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Marissa Meyer's gives Catherine, a girl who dreams of opening a bakery. Only her parents have other plans- marrying her off to the King of Hearts. Full of romance and mystery, Heartless is the backstory of the Queen of Hearts that you never knew you wanted.
Catherine is a talented baker and all she wants to do is open a bakery with her best friend and be the person who supplies Hearts with the best pastries and confections. Unfortunately, her mother thinks that's unsuitable for a woman who holds the eye of the yet unmarried King of Hearts.
At a ball where she believes she will receive a proposal, Cath meets Jest, the handsome new joker who immediately steals her heart. Unwilling to risk offending the King or her parents, they enter into an intense (& secret) courtship.
Cath only wants to fall in love and run her life on her own terms. But sometimes, fate has other plans
