Sixteen-year-old Mya Jones is cursed. She is, hands down, the most beautiful creature on earth. But beauty can wound, and Mya finds herself reviled and shunned by her peers.
When the strange Mr. Merk takes her from her home and offers her a new life, Mya is hesitant but hopeful. If there is even a chance that she could start over, Mya longs to take it, whatever the risks.
But she didn't count on the mysterious Ross, or her feelings for him. And once she admits to having feelings, everything will change. BEAUTIFUL CURSE is a contemporary retelling of the myth of Psyche and Cupid.
Mirabelle's past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents' tragic deaths to her guardians' half-truths about why she can't return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.
In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again. But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own... brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns. For in Mira's case, true love's kiss just might prove deadly...
