The shadow of the cursed Dragon Lord has hung over the town of Lirinsholme for centuries, and no one ever knows when the Dragon will claim his next doomed Bride. Rhianne Menyon has dreams of being a painter, but her world changes forever when a single moment of sacrifice brings her to Black's Keep as the Dragon's latest Bride. As she attempts to adjust to her new life -- and to know something of the monster who is now her husband -- she begins to see that the curse is far crueler than she first believed. Unraveling the mystery of what happened to the Dragon's Brides is only the beginning...

Customer ReviewsSee All
This is an engrossing and vivid and re-imagining of the Beauty and the Beast tale written by a masterful author. The reader is quickly transported into the fantasy and enthralled completely right up to the end. I will certainly read more of Pope’s novels. Her voice is perfect.
A Beautiful Story
At first I was a little weary about the plot line of this book, I am very glad I gave it a chance. This book is wonderful, it was one of the best books I have read in a long time.
A Beautiful Twist to A Well-Known Tale!
Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite tales. This book puts a mature twist on it!! I recommend this book for anyone 16+ (or who feels they are mature enough). There is no profanity or sexual activity (except for a few stolen kisses).
