Just Beyond the Gates
A slow burn romance with a Beauty and the Beast theme.
Ryland is a monster. Long ago, he angered a witch. Now hellbent on torturing Ryland, she’s left him cursed. Trapped in a castle with no one but the goblin who raised him, Ryland spends every single day in agony, awaiting the day his curse finally kills him. The only thing that can spare his life, would be a human sacrificing their freedom for him.
After a violent attack, Leota is left with no option but to run for her life. Soon, she stumbles upon a castle that she’d thought was only from a myth. When she steps inside, she realizes exactly how wrong she is.
With their constant clashing, Ryland’s guardian might be the only thing that keeps the two from tearing each other apart. Leota is the last hope Ryland has to break his curse, and the two soon realize they might need each other.
