A bloodthirsty dragon shapeshifter Crown Prince is forced to marry an angel in order to obtain more power for Wuzhen. However, one night, he receives a forged letter, luring him to the land of the kitsune, and ultimately, his mate.

The Prince's Beast is an Asian-inspired paranormal (MxM) romance story that takes the classical fairy tale Beauty and the Beast and combines it with the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.

                                                                    ♛   ♛   ♛   ♛   ♛

Returning from a battle with the pixies, 25-year-old Zheng Liu Wen is ushered into planning his wedding with Lailah, an angel from Aeyaviel. Pressured by his father and mother to marry, he finds himself wishing the worst for his blushing bride to be.

As Liu Wen begins to plot ways to rid himself of the angel, he receives a forged letter requesting that he appear in Mutsushina immediately. Intrigued by the forger, he sneaks off to the land of the kitsune, with a guard in tow. He is directed to a labyrinth where a mysterious beast awaits. Everything is not as it seems as he finds out that the Beast is cursed by the Seven Virtues and the only way to break the curse is to hunt down every Virtue and kill them.
