Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.
Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend and supply the Kingdom of Hearts with delectable pastries and confections. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next Queen.
At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the king's marriage proposal, she meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship.
Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

Why I'm waiting on Heartless this Wednesday: I'm sure you guys have noticed from being on my blog ... I sort of have a thing for Alice in Wonderland. And to hear that one of my favorite authors is releasing a retelling of it? Um, yes, please, sign me the heck up. I'm so looking forward to this one, especially because it focuses on the Queen of Hearts. She's such a complex and interesting character I'm just so looking forward to reading Marissa Meyer's take on her!
