Once upon a time, there was a man called Indri. He was the son of the frog king and had the features to prove it. Because he was feared for his appearance, his unloved heart hardened and turned black as a frog’s.
Once upon a time, there was a lady called Tilula. She was the daughter of a merchant and older sister to his favorite son. She was rarely ever appreciated by her family, but this never stopped her from loving those who needed to be loved.
Through fate and by the merchant’s own doing, Indri and Tilula are thrown together. It is in the forest that he first sets eyes on her beauty. It is in his villa that she first glimpses his wounded soul.
Can a heart of gold heal one that’s tainted black?
Locked behind the massive gates of an unforgiving beast’s estate, Benella encounters the beast and starts a bizarre cycle of bargaining for her freedom, a freedom the beast seems determined to see her lose.
England, 1860. An impoverished Victorian beauty is unexpectedly reunited with the now beastly earl who once broke her heart. Will they finally find their happily-ever-after? Or are some fairy-tale endings simply not meant to be?
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a retelling of the traditional French fairy tale. It is a story of adventure and prejudice set in a fantasy land lush with magic, assassins, princes, castles, and curses. Filled with humor, deception, and clean romance, it belongs to the series TIMELESS FAIRY TALES.
One tragic night left Abigail Vautille scarred and penniless. To save her family from debtor's prison, she strikes a deal with the rogue who owns her father's gambling vowels–if he excuses the debt, for two weeks, she'll give him her body, but not her heart. Michael Strickland desires more than that: he wants a lifetime to love her.
Gabriel Slade rules Hollywood, but no one knows that underneath it all is a man cursed to become a beast at every full moon. He has no choice but to roam the earth as a vicious animal. Luna Grace has a hatred for everything Gabriel Slade stands for. Can she overcome her hatred and break the curse? Or will Gabriel’s temper keep her from realizing her true feelings, dooming him to remain the beast forever? Book 2, Beast Anew, available for Kindle.
My name is Gabrielle, but Madame de Villeneuve thinks I’m a girl called Suzanne. Nobody believes I’m really who I say I am. I guess I’m partly to blame. After all, I did sign a stranger’s name to my committal forms when I entered this rehabilitation centre. I’m not actually addicted to anything—not sex, not drugs, not even rock and roll.
So what’s kept me here? It’s a long story, and you probably wouldn’t believe it even if I told you—especially the part about the monkey butlers. How does an innocent young woman end up bound to a hospital bed in the bowels of a Victorian manor house? I’ll tell you if you really want to know… but I’m not sure you do.
This is a story about seven kisses: some forceful, some sweet, and every one impossible to forget. Seven kisses that started with my stay at Loindici Manor. Seven kisses that would change my life forever.
