The Beast . . . Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding . . . and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly human--as untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes. The Beauty . . . Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She'd even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lion--the menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco. The Bargain . . . Then Isabella met a man whose growl was velvet, purring heat, whose eyes held dark, all-consuming desire. And when the don commanded her to become his bride, she went willingly into his muscled arms, praying she'd save his tortured soul . . . not sacrifice her life.

Okay - straight up - this book was an utter disappointment; both as a Beauty and the Beast retelling (cause let's be real that's kind of the storyline here) and a Christine Feehan book. We get to spend a lot of time with Isabella, but somehow by the end of the book, you're still left wondering who is this woman and whose this guy. The curse is pretty basic and the entire time you're asking yourself - does this connect to the Carpathians? I'm no longer sure. It was just underwhelming and I like so many of her other works better.

A nice stand alone about a man under a curse and the woman who loves him. Beauty and the Beast done Feehan-style. The little sister is a kick.
