Only a talented author can take a classic and make it so exciting! This isn’t your Disney beast. I would recommend reading Bastien first to get the Beast background. I really love the ending!

Even though fairy tales have been redone to death over the years I was happy to find this new twist on Beauty and the Beast. Very good, I want to read more from this author.

Loved The Beast! Read it in two sittings along with the prologue Bastien :)

Incredibly genuine and heartfelt mixed with the right amount of steam!

I totally loved it! In a free short story like this (of about 52 pages with 18 short chapters), the author gave me much more than I could’ve hoped for. It had a plot, a great storytelling. It was full of intense scenes filled with emotion. The sexual tension between Bastien and Lysette was so great and I was frustrated in the end that there wasn’t any love scene. This should’ve been a full-length novel with loads of love scenes!

Just sayin’! lol
