When an unfortunate crash down the stairs takes Pippa's life, her fairy godmother steps in and offers her an otherworldly task. If she can convince the beast of another magical reality to marry his beauty, Pippa will have a new life and won't spend eternity haunting a parking garage. Sounds easy, right? Of course, any task assigned by fairy godmother Muffin has its challenges. Belle's kind of a dunce, and the beast isn't exactly the cute and cuddly beast of the movies. But the more time Pippa spends with him? The more she sees that maybe he's not so beastly on the inside...How's Pippa supposed to convince Belle to marry the beast when she wants him for herself? This fairy tale retelling of Beauty and the Beast contains a fairy godmother named Muffin, a beast in an enchanted castle, some sexy chess games, and a stepsister who's wicked in all the right ways.

Love the story line. I did feel at time it could be a little cleaner in the details of intimacy leaving more to the imagination, but would definitely listen to again.
Yes. It was a fun book to listen to and it was not predictable. We all know the Disney version but this is not that. This was more interesting.
I loved how she narrated Pippa the best. Pippa has the dry wit that I loved. She clearly demonstrates the snark that Pippa had when encountering the inconveniences of being transported to Medieval times and dealing with Belle and the Beast.
I listened to the Mermaid's Knight first and I liked it, but I loved this story. Pippa and Duncan were interesting characters. I liked them both. Also, Jill did a great job with the romantic scenes and the Beast's appearance.
