Aimée and the Bear - A retelling of Beauty and the Beast
Who thought my favorite flowers, the red roses, would get me into so much trouble? One moment, I was picking them from the jungle-like garden of an old, abandoned mansion, the next I found myself hauled up into the air and thrown into a dark, filthy dungeon. Who was my captor? What did he want from me?
When I learned the only way out of this mess was to become the beast's wife, I decided I'd rather die. What made me change my mind? The mysterious, handsome stranger who started appearing in my dreams. His name was Gabriel and he was trapped, just like me.
Aimée and the Bear is a sizzling hot short story that might just set your Kindle on fire. Intended for readers 18+.
