I love the beast and hate the man. Bastien is such a bastard! No wonder he was turned into a beast, the jerk! This is the second eBook that I have read by Alianne Donnelly and she is one of the few who have her own category on my kindle. Onward to read The Beast…..

What do tarot cards, the fae and a hag have to do with Beauty and The Beast? We first met Lord Bastien Sauvage in Alianne Donnelly's "The Beast". "Bastien" tells the tale of exactly how the beast came to be cursed although to be honest I'm not so sure that it wasn't The Beast who was cursed into being Bastien. I'd read the first installment of this series "The Beast" so I was familiar with Bastien and totally prepared to continue wanting to kick him in the nuts in "Bastien". However, that was not the case b/c even though Bastien was still just as wicked as ever experiencing the story via The Beast's POV made me adore Bastien. I've always had a thing for the bad boys and trust me Bastien is as bad as they get. There's some hot sex going on so be warned you might also want to keep a hanky nearby if you're anything like me there will be times when you get misty eyed.
Ms. Donnelly did an excellent job putting a new spin on Beauty and The Beast. You won't even miss the dancing candelabra.
