Book four: Rumpelstiltskin
Kin de Bar (Rumpelstiltskin) is the lucky sibling, until the old witch, Hecuba, decides to curse him as well. While trying to save a book of alchemy from the witch, the book disintegrates in his hands and turns his chain-mail gauntlets gold. Little does he know that his curse is now the touch of gold, and only by wearing the gauntlets can he stop it from happening.
Olivia de Mil is a spinster - a woman who spins wool into yarn. At the wedding of Stefan de Bar, her foolish, drunken father, the miller, brags that she can spin wool into gold. A visiting baron hears this and decides he will marry the girl if what the miller says is true. If not, they will both be beheaded. He asks Kin to escort the girl to his castle, and the knight can see right through Olivia's father's lie. But now that Kin has the ability to do the chore for her, he puts his curse to work, thinking of it as a gift instead. His motive to help the beautiful woman is only to have her for himself. And when the greed that comes with his curse starts to take over, secrets are revealed, and Olivia's life is in danger.
Can a woman with a problem turn to a knight for help, or will his curse consume him, leaving him with more problems than he can handle from having a Touch of Gold?
