"P.J. Ochlan narrates a deeply romantic love story...A variety of strong emotions are displayed by the characters, and Ochlan gives them their due." — AudioFile Magazine

From rising fantasy star Silvia Moreno-Garcia comes a dreamy story of magic and high society. This audiobook will pull listeners into a theatrical world of sparkling jewels, secret dalliances, and impossible ultimatums.

Little does Antonina know that Hector and those closest to her are hiding a devastating secret that will crush her world and force her to confront who she really is and what she's willing to sacrifice.

Antonina Beaulieu is in the glittering city of Loisail for her first Grand Season, where she will attend balls and mingle among high society in hopes of landing a suitable husband. But Antonina is telekinetic, and strange events in her past have made her the subject of malicious gossip and hardly a sought-after bride. Now, under the tutelage of her cousin’s wife, she is finally ready to shed the past and learn the proper ways of society.

Antonina, who prefers her family's country home to the glamorous ballrooms of the wealthy, finds it increasingly difficult to conform to society’s ideals for women, especially when she falls under the spell of the dazzling telekinetic performer Hector Auvray. As their romance blossoms, and he teaches her how to hone and control her telekinetic gift, she can't help but feel a marriage proposal is imminent.

More praise for The Beautiful Ones:

"Truly one of the most beautiful books I've read in a long time. This sweeping tale of love lost and found is told with old-world elegance and grace with just the right touch of magic." —M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author

Quotes & Awards

  • "P.J. Ochlan narrates a deeply romantic love story, set in a stylized, magical Belle poque. ...Ochlan proves especially adept at bringing both Nina, a somewhat naïve country girl, and Valerie, a brittle and distant society doyenne, to life. The men fair similarly well: A callow young suitor sounds appropriately brash and reckless, and Nina's older cousin sounds jovial and somewhat complacent, while Hector Auvrey comes across as intriguing and intelligent. AudioFile

  • Moreno-Garcia (Certain Dark Things) fills her fantastic novel of manners with sumptuous language and plausible romantic complications in a setting that appears to be based on 19th-century France and is lightly garnished with minor magic...Readers who enjoyed Mary Robinette Kowal’s Glamourist Histories magical Regency series will be particularly enthralled by the genuine emotions evoked in the course of the unsustainable love triangle. Publishers Weekly

    "This elegant tale of hidden desires and misplaced amour will appeal to fans of historical fantasy.
