Hakodate Hearts, #1eBook - 2015
A dying teenage girl. A reluctant prince in hiding. Can their love cause a miracle?
Eighteen-year-old Sakura knew adulthood was not part of her future. With her body getting weaker and her eventual death looming ever nearer, she cut herself off from the world to die a quiet, mourner-less death.
At least, that was her plan. Then the yokai of her childhood fairy tales pops up in her garden, wounded and seeking aid from his late friend. Before she can stop herself, Sakura accepts him into her home, along with his young charge.
With the two working her heart in their own ways, Sakura is remembering how to live again, but is it worth the pain of leaving them in the end?
Aisuru is the first book in the Hakodate Heart series, but reads as a standalone novel. If you like modern fairy tales, strong female leads, swoon-worthy heroes, and adorable young birds, you’ll love Anma’s tale of loss, love, friendship, and family.

Knowing she'll die young, Sakura remains aloof from the world until she meets Kazuki, the yokai who starred in her late guardian's not-so-fictional fairy tales. But will letting herself connect with others and opening her heart to the world again only make the end that much more painful?
