Beauty and the Beast

The gist of this story is an angry beast kidnaps a young girl, forces her to live with him, and only lets her out when she develops Stockholm syndrome and agrees to marry him. Nothing says romance like someone refusing to free you until you love them. The fact that he turns out not to be an animal and is actually a man almost makes this worse.
