A BEAST LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF HIS PAST
Reclusive and severely scarred Prince Adam Delacroix has remained hidden inside a secluded, decrepit castle ever since he witnessed his family’s brutal massacre. Cloaked in shadow, with only the lamentations of past ghosts for company, he has abandoned all hope, allowing the world to believe he died on that tragic eve twenty-five years ago.
A BEAUTY IN PURSUIT OF A BETTER FUTURE
Caught in a fierce snowstorm, beautiful and strong-willed Isabelle Rose seeks shelter at a castle—unaware that its beastly and disfigured master is much more than he appears to be. When he imprisons her gravely ill and blind father, she bravely offers herself in his place.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
Stripped of his emotional defenses, Adam’s humanity reawakens as he encounters a kindred soul in Isabelle. Together they will wade through darkness and discover beauty and passion in the most unlikely of places. But when a monster from Isabelle’s former life threatens their new love, Demrov’s forgotten prince must emerge from his shadows and face the world once more…
Perfect for fans of Beauty and the Beast and The Phantom of the Opera,Beauty of the Beast brings a familiar and well-loved fairy tale to life with a rich setting in the kingdom of Demrov and a captivating, Gothic voice.
Content Warning: This is an edgy retelling of the classic fairy tale. Due to strong sexual content, profanity, and dark subject matter, including an instance of sexual assault committed by the villain, Beauty of the Beast is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
BEAUTY OF THE BEAST BOOK TRAILER
Review by Paula:
A more darker story of Beauty and the Beast and I loved it! Prince Adam was 11 years old when his life changed there was a fire in the castle and everyone died but Adam. Isabella loves to read and deals with her evil stepsisters and helps her blind papa. Isabella is engaged to the evil man Vicomte only so she can get the help she needs for her father. One day Isabella and her Papa go on a trip and her father gets to sick and they stumble on a mansion who happens to live there Adam ,but Adam is a angry man and just wants Isabella and her Papa to leave. Will Adam open up to Isabella? Will Isabella open up to Adam about Vicomte? I loved this grown up version. It brought it back to real life and dealing with loss of loved ones. 5 Stars
