Beauty and The Blade - Free

Athena Leonidas lives a simple life, far from the city of Achillea. But then warships capture the city in the name of the legendary Tyrant, and when Athena’s father returns to help defend it, he is imprisoned and sentenced to die. She confronts the terrible Beast who now controls the kingdom, and he offers her a bargain: if she will be his slave, her father will be spared. Desperate, she agrees.  By day she is his, by night she masks her face and, as the Rose, fights the occupation of her home.  Athena must find a way to free her country – she must find a way to kill the Beast.

But she begins to see humanity in him. What does she feel for him? What does he feel for her? What happens when love and tyranny collide?
