Princess Sophia has helped her twin sister Lily save the duchy of Marin. But now Sophie faces an even greater threat when she sets out to free the cursed kingdom of Palinar from its beastly prince. Alone, and with danger on every side, Sophie must navigate a magical castle and its even more mysterious master to discover the secret to breaking the curse.
Except the more time she spends with Prince Dominic, the more she starts to question who exactly she’s supposed to be saving. With time running out for the trapped inhabitants, and the reappearance of an old enemy, Sophie may have to choose between saving the kingdom and following her heart.
In this reimagining of the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast, Beauty will have to use all of her strength and intelligence if she is to outwit her enemies, break a curse and find true love.

Ooh! Did you see that Melanie Cellier released A Tale of Beauty and the Beast early? If you haven’t yet read any of her books, I strongly encourage you to do so.
Though they are part of a series that has intersecting characters, they can also be read as stand-alone novels. I would recommend, however, starting from the beginning with The Princess Companion and reading all the books in order and indulging yourself.
