Rose of the Oath: A Beauty and the Beast Novella

Hope Ann

Picking a rose was a stupid way to trigger a curse, in Elissa’s opinion. But there’s no arguing with the strange, scarred host of a hidden valley who’s taken her brother captive.

Without the resources to mount a rescue, Elissa desperately settles for the next best thing: exchanging her freedom for her brother.

But the longer she stays in the valley, the more Elissa realizes it isn’t just her prison. It holds secrets that her host jealously guards. Secrets that could hold the key to her escape.

Except maybe the curse isn’t a curse at all. And maybe secrets are the only thing keeping her alive.

A Beauty and the Beast retelling, Rose of the Oath weaves the timeless elements of roses and captors and beauties with deeper shades of betrayal, sorrow, and sacrifice.

The first novella in the Legends of Light series, this short novel is a stand-alone story and contains a handful of allegorical themes.

Hope Ann likes to think herself a dragon-riding, griffin-taming founder of worlds and explorer of legends. Using chocolate, she bribes a wide ring of spies, from the realm leapers of Aslaria to the double agents of Elkbend, for their stories.

She thrives on frost, steel, and the tears of her readers which she secretly mixes into iced coffee. Deep in her hobbit hole, her actual life involves staying up too late writing, reading, researching stab wounds, and struggling to remember the difference between ‘effect’ and ‘affect’.

Based in Indiana, she is the self-published author of the Legends of Light series. Hope Ann helps other writers as a personal writing coach and works for Story Embers. You can find out more about her at
