Prince Dean is the most beautiful omega anyone’s laid eyes on. Flowers bloom for the chance to see him, animals climb into his room simply to be in his presence, and not a person in the kingdom can say enough for his beauty. He is universally praised for his lovely green eyes, his freckles, his plush lips and the subtly strong lines of his cheekbones. His family hopes to use that to find a good match and secure an alliance for their kingdom.
The gods have other plans.
Naomi, goddess of beauty, hears more and more tales of the young omega’s beauty and she hates him for it. The fact that mortals and nature alike would hold anyone’s beauty above her own is intolerable. So she sends her son Castiel, god of love, to infect Dean with an undying love for a monstrous person as punishment for his hubris.
Fate has plans of its own…
[A retelling of the Classical myth “Cupid and Psyche.” Castiel is cast as Cupid, Dean as Psyche, and Naomi as Venus.]
Castiel Novak is a shadow, a silent man with few friends and a difficult life. When his brother, King Michael, buys himself a rare royal Dragossi, Castiel is tasked with hatching the creature and turning it into a weapon of war. But the unimaginable happens - the egg is stolen, and Michael gives Castiel an ultimatum; either Castiel brings the hatchling back to its rightful place, or dies a painful death.
Dean is a Brothel errand boy who would do anything to keep his brother, Sam, safe. After an offer for Sam’s freedom is made in exchange for a Dragossi egg, Dean drops everything to steal one from the King. But an accidental bond with the mischievous Dragossi hatchling makes things difficult, and when Dean realizes he’s stolen a royal Dragossi, he sets out to return it and avoid retribution.
The two men are set on a path, circumstance making them unlikely allies, and Castiel slowly, yet surely, falls for the simple man with a heart of gold. It becomes a choice between loyalty to his King, or faith in a beautiful thief.
A King Arthur AU with a twist and the love story that defied a kingdom.
