Broken Beauty by Catharina Maura

A Beauty and the Beast retelling featuring a cursed emperor, a princess who possesses forbidden magic, and a marriage that could save them all.

Arabella of Althea is left no choice when Felix Osiris, the Shadow Emperor, threatens to overthrow her country unless she agrees to marry him.

When she learns his empire is cursed and she’s destined to set them free, they come to an agreement: help him minimise the curse’s effect on his people, and he’ll let her go.

As Felix teaches Arabella how to control her volatile magic, her feelings for him turn from hatred to passion… and she realises that she must break the curse, or she’ll lose him forever.

Broken Beauty is exclusively available as part of the Once Upon a Broken Crown anthology, which is 0.99 on all platforms and set to release on 15 March.
