A modern day retelling of “Beauty and the Beast”

***Recommended for ages 18+ due to multiple, creative, detailed, steamy, sexy-time adult situations.***

For a thousand years, Chace has searched for a way to break the curse placed on him by a jilted lover. He’s a dragon shifter, one who can’t control when the magic will force him into a different form. He’s already lost everyone he ever cared about a few times over and doesn’t know how much longer he’s meant to suffer.

At his wit’s end, he makes a deal with a mysterious figure that offers him what he wants most – an end to his misery – in exchange for everything that’s his: His life, his power. His heart.

The next day, he meets Skylar, a modern day dragon slayer whose mission is to cage him – or kill him. Sexy, witty and brave, she is the yin to his yang, the woman destined to break the curse, balance his magic and make his broken heart whole.

Except it’s too late. Not only has he sealed his fate, but an innocent one-night-stand with Skylar has dragged her into the middle of a deal with the devil, one she won’t escape, if he can’t convince her that dragon shifters aren’t her enemies.

My Review:

What a rush! I didn’t just feel like I was reading this novel, I felt like I was living this novel. Ford developed her world so intricately that it is seamless. Did I have a hard time putting it down? Did I ever! The book was over before I took a breath. Ford used the dialogue not only to develop the characters but also to further the storyline. It also makes everything seem so much more real and down to earth. This author has nailed the art of racy and hot without being crass. She gives you raw, wild scenes that add to the story rather than being there as a side-blip.

The main characters in this novel were phenomenal. It’s been quite a long while since I’ve been so captivated by a pair of characters and their interactions with one another. They were brilliant as individuals and absolutely perfect as the will-they-won’t-they couple. I enjoyed the supporting cast. Although some of the supporting cast was mysterious it added to their aura. Ford went the extra mile, ensuring that her characters were fully developed, well rounded individuals that you could relate to.

I’ve heard lots about this author but have somehow never picked one up until now. I definitely can’t wait to read more. This was a rush. Can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
