Fair of face and figure, Kristine is young, innocent, pure. Yet she has been condemned to the gallows for killing a man. The only one who can save her is a lord so infamous that some say he is the son of the Devil himself…
And the Beast
Erik Trevayne is called the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but few know of the curse he lives under. Or the terrifying changes gnawing away at his humanity. When he weds her, all he wants of Kristine is a son. But when he beds her, a wild hope is born—that love that can tame even the most monstrous of beasts...
RT Book Reviews said:
“In this lovely, sexy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Ashley hits the mark. The mysterious change that the hero goes through and the depth of his curse will keep readers intrigued until the very last page. The relationship between the two main characters is set to a slow simmer and becomes more beautifully passionate as the story unfolds. When it comes to a sensual romance, Ashley never disappoints.”
THE LATEST NEWS
So, Beauty's Beast is out and the reviews are in. Happily, most of them have been positive. Annetta at Fresh Fiction said ~ "BEAUTY'S BEAST is not your children's fairy tale. Author Amanda Ashley blends gothic and paranormal seamlessly giving us this fascinating offering. BEAUTY'S BEAST is filled with the magic of love as this couple fights an evil woman's curse, but until that love is acknowledged we are offered a peek into the struggle that Erik is going through as he fights from giving in and letting the old witch win. Kristine's bravery is without question as she struggles to understand her new fate and fights for what she wants and along the way opens up the world for the reclusive, cursed husband.
I found this couple's plight very touching as Erik isn't a cruel man who is being cursed because of a life of debauchery. He just had the misfortune of having his first wife die of childbirth and then being cursed by his mother- in-law, who just happened to be an evil witch. There are a number of twists and turns along the way and the reader will find themselves holding on for this intriguing ride.
I hope Ms. Ashley finds a way to bring us another of these adult fairy tales. I enjoyed this remake of one of my favorite children's stories. BEAUTY'S BEAST is going on my TRA [To Read Again] shelf and I can't wait for the next offering from this amazing writer."
See me breathing a sigh of relief!
As I mentioned before, I've been hard at work on my new time travel, to the exclusion of pretty much everything else. And I'm loving it more and more. Funny, how some characters that are meant to be minor have a way of stealing their way into your heart. That's the case with my hero's grandfather. I just love Crow Hunter. I'm happy to say I only have about 4,000 words to go, and then the book is off to my agent! Hopefully, he'll like it as much as my critique groups!
I have an idea for a vampire book lurking in the back of my mind. The beginning is postged on the In The Works page.
I am soooooooooo tired of 100 degree heat!
