Saul the Bastard is a fallen angel who works as a bounty hunter for powerful urban demon families. Rebecca Drake, a modern-day demon princess, is being hunted by dangerous desert demons. When Rebecca's family hires Saul to protect her, they are both unhappy with the arrangement, but before long sparks fly as they try to resist their strong mutual attraction.
For the first time in living memory, Saul has someone to love; someone he is scared of losing; someone the desert demons have marked to be their next sacrifice.
Not too bad for a short story. I like to break up the long stories with short stories like this. I hope it will be good, but I don't expect much. This is about a fallen angel meeting a demon beauty and within a day fall in love, but what do you expect with only two hours. I think the author could have easily expounded on the story and made it into a full length story. Narrator was nothing special, but I have heard much worse. I would wait until a semi-annual sale if you are considering this book.

This had sooo much potential.... but... totally fell short. It kept skipping parts. I think it was missing chapters or something. I would wait until author goes back and redo. The author is on the right track however... I can see the potential...but needs to be a bit more.... what is the word... together...???

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
More depth in the story line. This had promise but it is bad.
Has Beauty and the Bastard turned you off from other books in this genre?
How could the performance have been better?
Why the long pauses between chapters?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
No not really
