*Formerly known as The True Story of the Beast*

After being punished for messing with a witch, Duke Kaiden Hunter is desperate to break the curse that makes him have an alternate personality - a beast. But the duke's mission is one that will be nearly impossible for him to fulfill: to find a pure-hearted girl who truly loves him, and for her to kiss him at the end of the year. But how can he trust himself when both personalities are cruel in some way? Especially when the beast is capturing girls and is trying to figure out who the girl is - but for a different reason: to kill her. 

Annabelle Harper's father is a terrible gambler who can't always pay all of his debts. When Belle's father decide to gamble with the beast, he accidentally gambles away his daughter. 

Annabelle will now have to pay her father's debt by staying in Kaiden's castle for the rest of the year, with some other girls and the house staff. But as Belle stays longer at the castle, she learns more about her hidden past. Could her past affect the people around her?

With his time limited, Kaiden can only hope he can reverse the curse. And with so many possibilities, the choice will be much more difficult. 

Here is the True Story of the Beast.

You mentioned two things. My all time favorite Disney fairytale, Beauty and the Beast, and my freaking favorite book series and favorite book couple, The Selection! This is already going on my reading list because this will be really really really good!

I think it would be better if the synopsis was slightly less detailed. Build more anticipation.

I skipped the intro before. I had a feeling this was influenced in part by the selection. Damn I love that series.
