Amazon has a Splash Into Summer Book Sale sale going on for a few days and several of the titles are fairy tale related. I'm going to give each title it's own post today.
The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson is the third book in Dickerson's fairy tale inspired Christian inspirational series. The previous two have been bargain priced previously. This one, released this past January, has been $8-9 until this sale where it is now $2.99. Lucky you, if you missed them and these books are your taste, the first two are also $2.99 for a short while, The Healer's Apprentice and The Merchant's Daughter.
Sophie has long wished to get away from her stepmother's jealous anger, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be her chance at freedom---but can she trust another person to keep her safe?
Gabe knows he defied his parents Rose and Wilhelm by going to find Sophie, and now he believes they had a right to worry: the orphan girl has stolen his heart. Though romance is impossible---she is his brother's future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else---he promises to himself he will keep her safe, no matter what.
When the pair are forced to run to the Cottage of the Seven, they find help---but also find their feelings for each other have grown. Can they find a way to protect Sophie while also safeguarding their hearts?
