Product description

Boy meets girl – with more twists than the spaghetti junction. Curses. Magic. Star-crossed love. Prince Rhen, heir to Emberfall, is cursed twice over. 1) He must repeat the autumn of his 18th year over and over. 2) When each autumn finally ends, he turns into a hell-raising beast. He’s tired. His kingdom is falling into ruin. Only one thing can save him: love. Just like the stories say. Fall in love, break the curse. Break the curse, save the kingdom. It sounds so simple. But who will love a beast like him? No ordinary girl. But then, Harper isn’t. She’s tough. She’s faced her own curse: cerebral palsy. She knows life is no fairytale. So what will she do when she’s sucked into Rhen’s fantasy world?

  • A bold, wild, unique new take on Beauty and the Beast
