Can love shatter a curse?
Faustina Casanova is a beauty and a thief, not necessarily in that order. Surviving in the darkness beneath Venice’s glittering façade, she knows better than to believe in magic, or trust too much to luck.
Benedetto Bellini was lucky once, but not anymore. Not since the curse. Now he’s got a second problem, one that’s washed up on his island and tried to steal his silverware. He finds Faustina intriguing and infuriating in equal measure. And, thanks to the curse, he’s stuck with her.
Faustina doesn’t know what to make of her shy, gentle and deeply irritating captor, or his island garden. But, at the heart of it all, there’s the glass rose. Like love, it’s beautiful, fragile and dangerous – and finding it changes everything.
A reimagining of Beauty and the Beast set in 18th Century Venice, perfect for fans of fairy tale romance. The Rose and the Mask is a standalone novel that can be read on its own or alongside the other book in the series, The Murano Glass Slipper.
Love is a kind of magic…
When Chiara’s father died, he left her a pair of glass slippers and a promise: that life would one day lead her back to love. With her world about to collapse, though, she needs something a bit more practical, like money. Or magic. That’s where Leandra comes in – although a seasoned con artist makes an unconventional fairy godmother.
Charming Domenico isn’t quite a prince. Actually, with all these secret identities to maintain, he’s not quite sure who he is. One thing he does know: he’s falling for the beautiful stranger he keeps running into at Venice’s masked balls. He’ll lose everything if he tells her the truth – but she seems to have some secrets of her own.
Dancing with Domenico is like a dream, and Chiara realises that he could be the person she’s been searching for. Now all she has to do is break his heart.
A reimagining of Cinderella set in 18th Century Venice, perfect for fans of fairy tale romance. The Murano Glass Slipper is a standalone novel that can be read on its own or alongside the other book in the series, The Rose and the Mask.
