The eldest daughter is often doomed in fairy tales. But Bella--Isabella Beauchamps, daughter of a wealthy merchant--vows to escape the usual pitfalls.

Anxious to avoid the Traditional path, Bella dons a red cloak and ventures into the forbidden forest to consult with "Granny," the local wisewoman.

But on the way home she's attacked by a wolf--who turns out to be a cursed nobleman! Secluded in his castle, Bella is torn between her family and this strange man who creates marvelous inventions and makes her laugh--when he isn't howling at the moon.

Breaking spells is never easy. But a determined beauty, a wizard (after all, he's only an occasional werewolf) and a little godmotherly interference might just be able to bring about a happy ending....

Probably one of my favourite fairy tale twists, Beauty and the Werewolf had me hooked. Characters and setting were developed, and the story was interesting. A recommended read for fantasy, women heroes, and a delightful fairy tale twist.

Very interesting and exciting twist to one of my favourite fairy tales. I couldn't put the book down. I recommend this book to everyone especially those who enjoys the tale of Beauty and the Beast.

Pleasantly diverting, I like the way she twists traditional tales. On the other hand, it was a bit predictable.

Another FANTASTIC take on fairytales we all know well.
Similar to another of her works, the Elemental Masters series, but still interesting in its own right!
Books in this series can be read together, in order, or out of order and on their own.

This book was a great combination of "Little Red Riding Hood" & "Beauty & the Beast". It is filled with interesting characters and intriguing plot twists that will keep you guessing until the end.

After mouthing off at the castle gamekeeper on her way to Granny's house, Bella gets attacked by a wolf on her way home. Rather than explain anything, the king imprisons her in a castle with the were-wolf who bit her! As a result, Bella is strongly inclined to kick the king for terrorizing her family.

“Getting angry over something that won't change is like seeing what happens if you hit your hand with a hammer over and over again, and being surprised each time when it hurts. So you might as well stop doing it.”
