Lord Victor Mayhew, Viscount Norcross, lives in the shadows, hiding his scarred face from those who would fear him...or worse, pity him. He's become accustomed to the dark, and to the aching loneliness that is his only and constant companion. But while traversing the city in the dark of night, he encounters a beautiful woman who is running for her life.
Lady Thessaly Shade has discovered that the prettiest of faces can hide the ugliest of hearts. While Lord Norcross keeps his face carefully concealed from her, he cannot hide the fact that he is a man of honor, a man for whom the word gentleman is a way of life and not merely an honorary title.
With no way to repay him for his kindness, for his courage in aiding her at great risk to himself, Thessaly bargains with the only thing she possesses of value...herself. Can she convince him to trust her, to believe that she can see beyond the scars he bears to the man he is? Or will he push her away out of fear and retreat into the loneliness that he knows so well?

Fun retelling of beauty in the beast. Sound quality was excellent, accents were well done, enjoyable little spin to an already familiar tale. A little short, but definitely worthwhile.
Absolutely, this is a really entertaining and enthralling retelling of the beauty and the beast fairytale, wonderfully narrated.
You've already asked me this... I'd recommend the audiobook over the print edition, the characters were brought to life so wonderfully and I couldn't stop listening.
I loved the opening scene of this book, it's suspenseful and sets the scene for the rest of the book.
The story was very satisfying
