A dark retelling of Beauty and the Beast   

Annabelle Novacek has never much liked how people view her. She was a beautiful rose to be admired and protected. But she has always felt lanky and awkward; it was her two older sisters that were perfect. When her father comes home with news of a wealthy nobleman desiring her hand, the family are thrilled and she is whisked off to a small town outside of Paris.   

The journey doesn't go as anticipated and their carriage is attacked. Annabelle only just escapes with her life but she is flung out to desperately search for any sign of life. The local nobleman takes her in, but the longer she stays the more she hears about the dark secrets the village holds; a ravage beast that roams the forest and lies in wait for its next victim.  

Beauty fades but true kindness lasts an eternity.

OMG this book is so good! Just the prologue itself leaves me wanting more. I can't wait to read more. BTW I really love the french in this book, it only makes it more believeable.

your writing is super captivating and the details drew me in so much that I couldn't make myself comment until I finished the prologue since I didn't want to stop. :)
