My favourite Disney princess is Belle and I love to read stories with Beauty and the Beast revellings.
Dragon Rose is one of the best I've read. 

There is Dragon, living in the castle, who takes a wife every few years. Everyone is afraid of him. The Elders of the town draw names in order to determine, who will marry him. 

Dragon hasn't takes a wife in a long time. Rhianne dream of it beforehand, she has kind of gift for it. 
When the name is drawn, it's her friend, who is engaged to be married soon. Rhianne takes her place and goes to castle willingly. 

The dragon is not what he imagined. He is always dressed in dark cloak, covering his entire body and head. He gives her liberty, to do whatever she likes. She is a painter, her father makes pottery and when his eyesight diminished, she took over the painting of it. In secret of course, because painting is not the job for a women.

In the castle she has access to unlimited supplies and canvases. She keeps dreaming of a guy and start to pain him little by little, not knowing that the painting will change her life.

I love this story, I could not put it down. It is just so pretty :)

Highly recommend it!

Happy reading,
