Rana is hiding a secret. Since she was eight years old, she has been in love with Kaleb Prince, the son of her mother’s former employer. The day he left for collage, her heart shattered. Inconsolable, she accepted a job on Firefly Island, in the hopes she could forget about the boy who never loved her in return.
The traumatic passing of his mother sent Kaleb spiraling down a dark path. If not for Rana’s mother, he would have been lost to that world completely. Fifteen years later, her death drives him to search for Rana, leading him to the island.

Revenge is a dish best served green. Rana begs the witch for a chance to prove Kaleb’s merit. She agrees, transforming Rana into a frog. Now, Rana has until sundown to convince Kaleb to kiss her before the metamorphosis becomes permanent. Exhibiting more froglike qualities with each passing hour, will Rana be too late to save herself or will she finally get her Prince?

The only high-point in her life is Luciano, the striking grandson of another patient, who suffers the same fate as she. When his grandmother dies, Luciano gives Gabrielle a farewell gift: an antique music box.

However, when Annabelle and the mysterious rock are abducted, a sinister plot emerges, one which will destroy the budding relationship. Once Annabelle’s true ancestry is revealed, she is left with a heartbreaking decision: hide in the past or step forward into the future.
