Beauty is a beast...  

Izzy doesn't suffer fools and she doesn't take prisoners, so when one of the local mobs takes her father captive, she'll stop at nothing to free him. Even if that means taking on the mysterious men of Blackwood Forest herself.

But when Izzy enters the lair of the beasts, she discovers saving her father isn't as simple as it seemed, and saving herself from Alexander Blackwood and his pack is going to be even harder...

The Poison Court Saga is a collection of standalone urban fantasy fairy tale retellings with a reverse harem twist. The novels are set in L.C. Hibbett's Wicked Witch universe and each novel tells the backstory of a different secondary character from the Wicked Witch's series. Catch up with the characters from this novel again in Wicked Destiny (release date October 2017). 

Recommended reading age: 18+ due to scenes and language of an adult nature.
Izzy's has been gone for work but the girls haven't heard from him which is strange to him. When they learn that he's at the Blackwood home it's up to Izzy to venture into the forest. After all, she's the only one with any military training so if things turn south quickly she should be able to get out. When she arrives at the Blackwood Manor she learns that things aren't all they appear and agree's to take her father's place so that he can work on his research at home. 

Staying at the manor with 4 attractive men can't be that hard, even if they do turn a little fuzzy under the moon. Besides once her dad is home he will figure out how to cure the curse and things will be ok. The more time she spends with the guys she learns about the rivalry between them and Gaston who just happens to be the one buying up the town. Now Izzy will have to work with her captor to fix the curse as well as save her sisters. 

I like Izzy she's not your typical Beauty as she's tough and can kick butt. I wasn't sure to be fair about the guys but they each bring a little something else to the pack and it just works. I love the way that Gaston is portrayed he's such a great bad guy to hate. 

I've had this one on my TBR list for a while and it was perfect for one of my challenges this week. I instantly was hooked and couldn't put it down I had to know how things would play out for Izzy and her new pack of werewolves. The characters are easy to connect with you can't help falling in love with her or the guys. Beauty's Beasts is a quick fast paced action packed retelling of the classic with a reverse harem twist. I truly enjoyed every page the author has done a wonderful job creating an enchanting story. I can't wait for the next book in the series, as well as her other books as some of the characters are carried over.

  1. Hmmm. A reverse harem twist you day? I've never heard of this before but it sounds interesting.
