Hey guys! I have a special spotlight post for you guys today! Why special? Because this book is Greek mythology-based! :D

Title: Beautiful Curse

Author: Jen McConnel

Publication date: December 2014

Published by: Swoon Romance

Genre: YA | Mythology | Romance

Blurb: Winner of the Gayle Wilson Award for Excellence in Fiction.

Sixteen-year-old Mya Jones is cursed.

She is, hands down, the most beautiful creature on earth. But beauty can wound, and Mya finds herself reviled and shunned by her peers. If there is even a chance that she could start over, Mya longs to take it, no matter the risks.

So when the strange Mr. Merk offers her a new life away from home, Mya is hesitant but hopeful. Only she didn't count on the mysterious Ross, or her feelings for him.

Beautiful Curse is a contemporary retelling of the myth of Psyche and Cupid.
