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 this hen. I'm gonna name it Tyrannosaurus Pecks.
                              I know. I know. I'm lame af.
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.
This story is amazing. I read your other classic fairy tale retellings and I loved them. You're such a talented author. You have a real gift with words. I love how you twist and weave the plot line in your other stories, so it's different from the other retellings out there. :)
I love the story of Beauty and the Beast and am excited for what you have planned! I haven't read the original but I'm positive you'll represent it great! :)

Sounds interesting, will be waiting! 😊 Still have to read Air, but now because I haven't read it there are so many chapters! 😄
Oooh, exciting! I will see the movie and then read the first chapter. Are you seeing the movie on the day it comes out?
