Of Curses and Kisses

St. Rosetta's Academy: Book #1

Bookseller Recommendation

Of Curses and Kisses

“With all the elements of a perfect fairy tale, Sandhya Menon, author of When Dimple Met Rishi, has written another winner. Set in an exclusive boarding school for wealthy international students, readers are swept into a romantic drama that includes modern royalty and an ancient curse. Narrators Shiromi Arserio and Jason Carpenter bring the two main protagonists to life. As with her other books, the author avoids most of the edgier language and content issues of some popular YA books while still adding enough kissing and cursing to make it feel authentic to teen readers.”

“Fans of Menon’s frothy, contemporary rom-coms will be excited for this venture into new territory.” —Booklist
“[A] dreamy, sassy confection of a romance…Funny, extravagant, and satisfying.” —Shelf Awareness

From the New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi comes the first novel in a brand-new series set at an elite boarding school that’s a contemporary spin on Beauty and the Beast.

Will the princess save the beast?

For Princess Jaya Rao, nothing is more important than family. When the loathsome Emerson clan steps up their centuries-old feud to target Jaya’s little sister, nothing will keep Jaya from exacting her revenge. Then Jaya finds out she’ll be attending the same elite boarding school as Grey Emerson, and it feels like the opportunity of a lifetime. She knows what she must do: Make Grey fall in love with her and break his heart. But much to Jaya’s annoyance, Grey’s brooding demeanor and lupine blue eyes have drawn her in. There’s simply no way she and her sworn enemy could find their fairy-tale ending…right?

His Lordship Grey Emerson is a misanthrope. Thanks to an ancient curse by a Rao matriarch, Grey knows he’s doomed once he turns eighteen. Sequestered away in the mountains at St. Rosetta’s International Academy, he’s lived an isolated existence—until Jaya Rao bursts into his life, but he can’t shake the feeling that she’s hiding something. Something that might just have to do with the rose-shaped ruby pendant around her neck…

As the stars conspire to keep them apart, Jaya and Grey grapple with questions of love, loyalty, and whether it’s possible to write your own happy ending.
