"Absolutely spellbinding." --Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Caraval and Legendary
In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives readers another compulsively readable romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.
Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she 's instead somehow sucked into Rhen 's cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince' A monster' A curse' Harper doesn 't know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what 's at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

Pre-order Untitled Amazing! The start was a little slow because the female lead was so reluctant to go along with what was happening and the male lead was trying to charm rather than actually feel something for the girl that was supposed to fall in love with him.
On so many different pets I thought I knew what was going to happen but every time I was proved wrong (except one ??) and the twists kept coming right up until the end. Loved the new way of retelling the beauty and the beast and I am SO excited to read A Heart so Fierce and Broken ?? - Hannah (QBD) Christine, 02/02/2020 Untitled I adored A Curse So Dark and Lonely. I was captivated by the characters, world, and the plot from the very first chapter. Rhen and Harper are fantastic characters on their own, with brilliant character arcs. But together they are like fire and it’s one that I want to keep on spreading.With fantastic world-building, character arcs and a plot that just keeps giving, then this is for you. - Angelique (QBD) Christine, 15/03/2019
