With its guileless heroine, masterful hero and mystical overtones, Feehan's inspired retelling is likely to garner her the attention she deserves.

Synopsis

The Beast . . . Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding . . . and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly human—as untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes. The Beauty . . . Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She’d even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lion—the menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco. The Bargain . . . Then Isabella met a man whose growl was velvet, purring heat, whose eyes held dark, all-consuming desire. And when the don commanded her to become his bride, she went willingly into his muscled arms, praying she’d save his tortured soul . . . not sacrifice her life.
 

About Christine Feehan

Christine Feehan - I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I?ve also been involved in the martial arts for years - I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

Christine Feehan is a magnificent storyteller. Her spitfire heroine, tormented hero, their dark and highly sexually charged relationship are so enthralling...

...add a lightweight plot to a very, very, very, very, very, very serious tone, and you've got a book that just doesn't really work very well on any level.

While this book does offer a solid story, it doesn’t hold my interest as well as her other books. This may just mean that I’m spoiled by reading her more current books.

This Beauty and the Beast story isn't like anything I've ever read before! I couldn't read this book fast enough. It's hot, full of angst and most definitely a page- turner!
