Ember

Charm is a curse. Love is a fire. This story is no fairytale.

Everyone loves Prince Charming. They have to—he’s cursed. Every man must respect him. Every woman must desire him. One look, and all is lost.

Ember would rather carve out a piece of her soul than be enslaved by passions not her own. She turns to the dark arts to save her heart and becomes the one woman in the kingdom able to resist the Prince’s Charm.

Poor girl. If Ember had spent less time studying magic and more time studying human nature, she might have guessed that a man who gets everything and everyone he wants will come to want the one woman he cannot have.

Warning: This story contains sex, violence, and naughty words.
It’s based on a fairytale, but it isn’t for kids.
You must be over 18 to read.

My friend ThreeRs and I were talking about supporting indie authors and the best self-published books we’ve read, and she recommended this one to me. Which is great! Because I love fairytale retellings. I actually read the first chapter for free on Bettie’s website, loved it, and knew I’d like the rest of it.

    Sounds like a good book. I’ve enjoyed fairytale-inspired books before, so I’ll definitely look into adding this one to my reading list. For myself, I’ve got about 6 books on hold at the library including Scott Westerfeld’s Leviathan and the Fables spinoff Fairest by Bill Willingham.

      I’m only a recent fan (like, the last six months) or retellings, but they are quickly becoming one of my favourite types of books!
