What if the Beast never turned into the prince?

My father had just sold me off.

Bartered my body to erase his debt to the very devil himself.

A Beast of a man. Literally.

A creature whispered about amongst the villagers and feared by all.

He was a beastly visage at three times the size of a man, his monstrously huge body covered in fur. Sharp fangs and eyes that held an unearthly red glow. He had pawlike hands tipped with claws and horns that arched back from his inhuman face.

I was to live with him, to be his in every way—all ways—he saw fit.

I was to be his wife, and so I offered myself up as the proverbial sacrifice to the very devil himself.

I just didn’t expect to enjoy being with a monster as much as I did.


I picked this one for a reading challenge this is my first book by the author. I wasn't sure what to expect it's a quick steamy beauty and beast retelling. Unlike the typical beast who turns into a prince at the end this one stays a beast. I enjoyed the story it was quick finished in no time at all with a happy ever after. I'm looking forward to checking out more books by the author.

  1. I believe I've read one, sort of two other TB&TB stories where the beast stays a beast. It does make for an interesting ending! Glad you enjoyed this one!
