    Summary

    Rose is determined to marry a man who loves her. She longs for a great, sweeping romance akin to the ones in her books. But when financial ruin falls upon her family, she must make a difficult choice: wait for her true love who may never come, or be married off to Lord Ashworth, the mysterious yet wealthy baron whom she has never met. Ultimately, she decides that her selfish desire for a loving husband must be set aside in order to save her family, and so she agrees to the marriage. Rose prepares herself for the worst, as she has heard rumors that Lord Ashworth is deformed. But, upon arrival at the castle for her engagement, she finds that he is nothing at all like she imagined.

    Beast knows the only way to break the curse is to marry, but he was born a monster and has no desire to be human. He is on the road to becoming a confirmed old bachelor and won't let anything in his way. Not even his mother's dying wish. But, when she arranges a marriage on her deathbed between Beast and the daughter of a destitute merchant, all of his plans go awry. How can he avoid this marriage without upsetting anybody? But more importantly, how can he remain a beast when everyone—including this young woman—wants him to become human?

    "PROPHECIES ARE RARELY WHAT THEY SEEM" —But that doesn't stop the people of Celadore from condemning the newborn girl Nedra to death by her father's hand.

When these two children eventually cross paths, their bond leads to a shocking future that Celadore didn't know it desperately needed.

    Summary

    The rules were as such. Each prince had until the eve of the next full moon to find three quest items to bring back that would prove their worthiness. The first item was a large amount of gold. The second was a mystical artifact whose powers would help benefit the kingdom. And lastly, they had to find a wife of royal lineage willing to become their queen. For generations, the Three King’s Quest was used to decide Exegol’s next reigning king. That was how it had been for the longest time, that’s how everyone always thought it would be.

    With her kingdom plunged in eternal darkness thanks to her evil grandfather, it's up to Reynella, the first-ever princess born into the house of Palpatine, to go on an epic quest to prove she is worthy of becoming queen and breaking the long-standing curse over Exegol. Along the way, she comes across the castle of Kylo Ren, a mysterious enchanter who has both the gold and treasures she needs to complete her quests and is currently keeping a prince captive as well. Reynella schemes to free him, however, not everything is as it seems. Can she rescue the prince and make it back home in time to earn her crown and help her kingdom?

    Based on the fairy tale, 'Petronella'.

    Summary

    Chu Wanning wasn't a fan of fairytales. He believed they're only created for kids and he was anything but childish. So when he was assigned as a personal nurse to a comatose patient of 5 years, he made sure not to read to the said patient the fairytale books the prior nurse had left behind.

    This time.... he'll do a retelling. A slight alteration to the original fairy tale with a sprinkle of reality couldn't hurt, right? And reality doesn't guarantee a happy ending.

    But when the heart started beating for someone that would only wake up if fairytales do exist... will his pragmatic view change? Or will it only prove that life and love were not so fairytale after all.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, many, many years ago, there was a manor hidden away deep within an ancient forest. Even the few that were brave enough to travel through the dark, tangled forest would never be able to find the manor, because it was surrounded by a magic wall that concealed it from outsiders. And what justified such secrecy? Perhaps the manor held a closely kept secret, a secret which some devoted souls had been desperately trying to uncover for years...

    Summary

    Whitechapel, London 1894. Sophie Wickes and her family struggle to survive, melancholy eats away at her father more and more with each passing day, and her passion for cultivating flowers procures no income. She must swallow her pride and set aside her hatred for England’s aristocracy when she’s offered a chance of employment by the reclusive Lord Edgar Cushing to tend the gardens of his Rosenthorne Hall. However, the estate, its gardens, and their master is nothing what Sophie expected.

    The house? Rotting, dilapidated, hideous.

    The gardens? The husk of something alive, whimsical, and beautiful.

    The master? Faceless, nothing more than a voice from the shadows.

    Despite her fear and anger, Sophie becomes enthralled by the garden’s potential for mystic, untainted beauty, and she develops a close friendship with Lord Cushing, despite him being nothing but a mere whisper of darkness that pleads for her to never seek him out.

    However, whatever enchantment the gardens and Lord Cushing’s voice bring her shatters as she begins to receive nightly visitations from a crooked-jawed phantom and butterflies who’s wings whisper of a bloody past and the truth behind the faceless lord's gentlemanly masquerade.
