Mad Man's Guardian By MadMansGuardian Completed

There is no beast so fearsome as a madman scorned from above; 
  There is no force so pow'rful as hope for impossible love. 
  
  Prince Gaston thinks that the legendary Assassin is the only hope for saving King Maurice's kingdom. But when the Assassin doesn't want to be paid in gold; he wants something that King Maurice's daughter and Prince Gaston's betrothed, Belle, can never give up; a human companion. Princess Belle offers herself up instead, and is whisked away to the Assassin's hidden fortress. But the more time that Belle spends with her captor, the more she struggles with balancing trust, forgiveness, and old fashioned common sense. 
  
  
  [Heavily inspired by Once Upon a Time's sub-plot with Belle and Rumplestiltskin. Spoilers up to 1x12 (Skin Deep). No smut, archaic cursing.]

I love your wide range of vocabulary and how you use the words perfectly. And this writing style is one of my personal favorites.
I can't access my @MadMansGuardian account from this infernal device, so I'm going to give a preliminary hoorah from here: YAY!!! I hit my first 1k reads!

You're actually a really good writer! And I'm shock that this book hasn't been discover yet! This is beautiful!

I like the idea of Belle choosing this fate, rather than her father giving her away. And the Beast being an assassin is intriguing.

quite astute, and possibly convenient that she feels this way!
