Ever wondered about the story of the woman who cursed the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. If you have then this is the book for you.

Like a lot of women in this time, Felicity is having an arranged marriage. With excitement, she travels to Beau to marry a young handsome duke. However, things are not what they seem and whilst she is disappointed with her fiancé, Alistair the handsome prince catches her eye and drawn into his mysterious ways starts a love affair that changes her life for ever.

It is not often that I change my views on a character but this is one time that I have. At the start of the story I felt sorry for Felicity as the life she had with the Duke was not a happy one, but as the story progress her jealousy made her petty and spiteful.  I could not take to Alistair as I did not know if he was playing a game with Felicity’s emotions or if he was pressured into being with Anne.

This book is a great introduction to the Haunting Fairy Tales. RL Weeks has done it again, with her spin on a popular fairy tale. Her taking a minor character from Beauty and the Beast and making it into a story that had it all, action, love, hate. One difference with this book to others I have read by this author was the erotica theme running through this story. The scenes were tastefully written and helped explain Felicity’s life and the reasons behind her choices.

A well written quick read that can be read wherever you are on the Haunted Fairytale journey
