Breaking the Curse

Raven's Royal Mate

Novella by AJ Tipton



A terrible curse goes erotically right. 

In a magical kingdom far away, there lived cursed princes, warrior women, and mighty magic. Breaking the Curse is a sexy gender swapped Sleeping Beauty retelling where the heroes have become heroines, the heroines have become heroes, and nothing is as it seems. 

Handsome Prince Nathan is doomed. Cursed at infancy to plunge into an eternal slumber on his twentieth birthday, he believes a short, isolated life is all he can ever hope for. With so little time left, he only wants to have fun with his best friend, a talking bird named Raven. 

Raven is not what she seems. A mischievous temptress, Raven is the henchwomen of the same malevolent sorcerer who damned Nathan as an infant. Cursed to be a woman-by-night, bird-by-day, Raven still thinks she has everything she needs: a handsome semi-evil lover, a charming best friend, and an unending supply of pranks. 

When one of her schemes puts Nathan’s life at risk, she’ll have to expose her true feelings for him to save the day. Will Raven change her wily ways? Or are they both out of time? 

This naughty adult retelling of Sleeping Beauty involves light bondage, drunken sorcerers, and a love strong enough to defy even the strongest curse.

This STANDALONE novella is part of the “Sexy Gender Swapped Fairy Tale” series which can be read in any order. There are no cliffhangers, and each short ends as it should: happily ever after.
