More on the subject:
A young duke was cursed by a witch as a child and given the unwanted power to kill any living thing he touches. He was forced to move away from his family and live in a large mansion deep in the woods. He is shunned by those around him and treated as if he doesn’t exist.
But he is not entirely alone. Rob and Alice, his butler and maid, are always by his side. Alice loves to tease him, and as their relationship grows closer, the Duke makes it his goal to break free of his deadly curse. Of course, he needs help to do that, and who better to do that than the various denizens of the supernatural?
