Of Beast and Beauty : Something evil this way comes.
7 Vengeful Sisters
7 Fairytale Kingdoms7 Daughters of Eville
Everyone dreams of marrying a prince—except for me. I am nothing more than a pawn in my adoptive mother’s diabolical plot against the seven kingdoms.I was the chosen tool, her sharpened blade that would cut the deepest into the heart of the Kingdom of Baist. But like all deadly weapons, my wedding is two-edged sword that could cost me my soul.
For I am Rosalie, one of the adopted daughters of Lady Eville, and it is my duty to enter into a loveless and hate-filled marriage with the narcissistic Crown Prince of Baist. My choices and heart are not my own to give. Yet even in the thick of dire situations, beastly vengeance can give way to beautiful attraction.
“Xander,” she replied curtly, and my head snapped up when I heard the prince’s name. The drunken lord I had been bantering and sharing a heated kiss with was none other than my husband. How ironic.
Yasmin stopped in front of Xander, her eyes never leaving his face, not even acknowledging my presence. “Is this it, then?” she asked. “The end of us?”
“No,” he breathed out. “Despite my circumstances, we can be together.”
Her beautiful blue eyes teared up, and she blinked prettily. “Words, my prince. Your words mean nothing to me when you have gone and married another, and I will not be your whore. You have made me look like a fool in front of my family and friends, and I am no fool,” she hissed. “You are the fool who has pledged himself to a daughter of Eville. Do you not understand what you’ve done? Do you not know the ruin you’ve brought to our kingdom?”
“My kingdom,” Xander said stiffly.
Yasmin’s eyes widened at being contradicted. “W-What?”
“It is my kingdom, not yours.”
“I meant no offense. It was a mere slip of the tongue. For goodness’ sake, we were engaged to be married. We had dreams for the kingdom of Baist. It isn’t a dream I can so easily give up because you tell me to. I can’t give up on you. I won’t. Please, tell me you haven’t given up on me… on us.”
