I couldn't stand the sight of my own face.
My parents couldn't either.
I am a freak, a hideous, deformed, monster.
And no one can love a monster.
Sebastian Schreave knows he's a monster, a monster that must be hidden behind a mask. He's not like any other prince Illea had ever had, all of those princes were perfect and beautiful, and he was deformed and disgusting. Feared by everyone, even by his own parents, Sebastian lived his life in isolation and solitude, ashamed of how he looked. There was no one who wasn't afraid of his gruesome face, not even himself. Sebastian hid himself from the cameras, never letting them get a shot of him. And he never would.
Until his Selection arrives.
To Sebastian, the Selection is a nightmare come true. 35 girls, all curious to see what he looks like behind his mask, and all fighting to marry him. He knows that it's a hopeless case, no girl could ever fall in love with someone with a face such as his.
But no matter how hard Sebastian tries to delay and stop his Selection, it soon comes. And Sebastian's days of hiding are no more. He must find a wife, someone to be by his side for the rest of his life, someone to love him.
But can anyone love a monster as ugly as he is?
