CAN A WOUNDED BEAST . . .
Reclusive Sir Alistair Munroe has hidden in his castle ever since returning from the Colonies, scarred inside and out. But when a mysterious beauty arrives at his door, the passions he's kept suppressed for years begin to awaken.
TRUST A BEAUTY WITH A PAST . . .
Running from past mistakes has taken legendary beauty Helen Fitzwilliam from the luxury of the ton to a crumbling Scottish castle . . . and a job as a housekeeper. Yet Helen is determined to start a new life and she won't let dust-or a beast of a man-scare her away.
TO TAME HIS MOST SECRET DESIRES?
Beneath Helen's beautiful facade, Alistair finds a courageous and sensual woman. A woman who doesn't back away from his surliness-or his scars. But just as he begins to believe in true love, Helen's secret past threatens to tear them apart. Now both Beast and Beauty must fight for the one thing neither believed they could ever find-a happy ever after.

2 . Excellent Story
Posted July 23, 2009 by Melissa , TokyoWhat I liked most about this story was that it wasn't your typical romance novel, which I think gave far more depth to the story. The lead male character has physical deformities, though at no point through the story does he seem overly bitter about them. It's refreshing to see a mistress portrayed as something other than the vicious harpy out to ruin the happiness of others or the vulnerable virgin who needs to be rescued. Yes, there is some rescuing that happens, but it's done quite cleverly and without being over emphasized. I was pleasantly surprised by that. I found that the main female character was incredibly easy to empathize with as well as see as a realistic character.
Additionally, the style in which the story is written is excellent. It is easy to get caught up in the story and the characters. I also liked that the story was told from several perspectives, including a child's; it gave the overall story more substance.
Definitely worth the money. I've enjoyed reading and re-reading it.
