Title Veiled Allurement
Author Elle Beaumont
Description from Amazon
When the clock strikes midnight blood will be shed.
When Faye, the ruling goddess of Alindor, and Lady of Light, is cast from the heavens by her wicked sisters, Nymiane and Etain, she finds herself unable to tap into her powers. As if that wasn’t cruel enough, she quickly discovers that a mask has been sealed against her face, unable to be removed.
She is soon feeling panicked, but as luck would have it two good Samaritans scoop her up and whisk her away to a house full of ladies. There, Faye is forced to lie about who she is and where she is from and finds herself easily making friends with her new housemates.
As things begin to settle into a new routine, no one anticipates Faye being abducted by King Zev of Melothra, or that he plans to use her as an instrument of chaos, courtesy of Nymiane, on the eve of his annual ball.
A war is about to break out and when the clock strikes midnight-who will survive?
- Gilded Ashes by Rosamund Hodge – this is another Cinderella retelling. Also, it’s also a novella.
- Hunter’s Truce and Royal’s Vow by Elle Beaumont – same author and same premise. These novellas are retellings of the Big Bad Wolf story but if you like retellings of classics, you will enjoy these stories too. Similarly, if you enjoy Elle Beaumont’s writing style, definitely check these out.
- Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon – although this isn’t a fairytale retelling, it is a retelling of a classic Charles Dickens’ story. Both Olivia Twist and Veiled Allurement have romance that revolves around the main characters keeping secrets (and having secrets involving their siblings 😉). This is a full length novel, but if you liked Veiled Allurement, trust me, and give Olivia Twist a try.
