A tale as old as time with a rather different twist. When Beau's father steals a cursed rose from the garden of a terrifying beast, Beau bravely offers to take his father's place in servitude. 

Cursed to appear in the form that will terrify the beholder most,  Brielle doesn't know what to make of the new addition to her castle.

But the pair slowly learn that there is more to the other than meets the eye. After all, beauty is only skin deep.

Skin Deep is a gender-reversed retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

I like that he gets along with at least some of his siblings. The versions of the tale where they have a bunch of siblings and ALL of them are awful except for Belle? I never trusted it.
