Kate Winton-Jones is marrying one of America’s most eligible bachelors. Edward Carnarvon III is rich, handsome, and hers.

Furious, the dress's famous designer fires the clumsy seamstress on the spot, whereupon the girl declares the dress cursed and storms out. Kate doesn't believe in curses. She’s modern, American and in love with the perfect guy. What could go wrong?
