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...

What's New in Version 1.8
I'm a paranormal junkie and I have read several of Christine's other series. I was so bummed that this was a standalone book, I would love a follow up story on Black's Keep. I was hooked from the first page to the last.
A Pleasant Read
A clean, romantic story. I enjoyed it.
Desperately wanted to like this...
I’m a sucker for any re-imagining of Beauty and the Beast. Even the bad ones. But every page of this book was a struggle. Rhiane’s formal, stilted narration and dialogue made liking her impossible. And when she’d go from zero to hysterical in a sentence or less, it was even more abrupt and unbelievable because she was so robotic. This book had a lot of potential, and the plot itself wasn’t terrible (probably because it was mostly leveraged from the original). But the execution was awful, and I regret the hours wasted reading the book.
