Cursed Beauty : Aurora Rose Brynhild is out of time.
For eighteen years she’s been allowed to live as a free woman in anticipation of a century long slumber.
Now, the dark sorceress of Dracon is coming for her, and she doesn’t like to lose.
But Aurora is ready. She has nothing, no one to miss.
When she finds the Belaen prince wounded in the forest, she takes him home, wanting to do one good thing before the curse takes her, needing to save his life.
As she heals the prince, she comes to know fear for the first time in her life. Because now, when the slumber comes for her, she has something to leave behind.
Prince Phillip Basile never gives up.
The “General Prince” as they call him, is used to battling for everything he has.
And now, he will fight for her. Aurora tells him she can’t stay, that there’s no way to break her curse. But he will do anything to prove her wrong, to save her no matter the cost.
“Phillip,” Alfred barked. “Stop for a damn minute.”
Phillip turned, his jaw clenched. “There is no time. Within the hour, they will overrun us.”
“You can’t ride out. What will protect you?”
Chandler nodded in agreement. “Phillip, the entire Gaulean force is out there. Even with our magic, we can’t match them. You’re the heir to the Basile magic. We can’t risk you.”
Bela was the least populated of the six kingdoms by more than half, but each person born in their land held magic in their blood. The only other kingdom that could boast such a feat was Dracon. Magic had protected Bela for centuries, yet only when the ancient power of the kings was also present. Each Basile king possessed a magic matched only by that of the dark sorceress of Dracon.
And the king was dying. Phillip thought back to the last time he’d spoken to his father. The old man had wanted to make the journey, to ensure they won the day, but he wasn’t even able to stand. He wouldn’t have had the strength to travel, let alone wield his own magic. If he died, Phillip would inherit the power, allowing him to protect Bela.
What would his father do now? Would he abandon the last remaining border fortress? Would he try to protect the few people Bela had left?”
