Samantha Sykes is a beautiful young woman, but her life is ugly. Her wicked stepmother, twisted with jealousy, arranges a marriage for Samantha with a rich, arrogant and cruel man.
It only the actions of her concerned father that save her from this fate worse than death.
Or so it seems, until she discovers that her father’s plan is to send her hundreds of miles away to Lord Callum’s castle in Inverness, as servant and cook to a disfigured beast of a man, hidden from all but those who dare enter his maternal grandfather’s home.
Which is worse? Marriage to a monster, or servant to a beast?
In this original Regency fairytale the classic tale of Beauty and Beast takes a decidedly romantic Regency turn.
