Publisher's Summary

Like the classic Beauty and the Beast, this steampunk romance features an unlikely love story.

The Lord of Blackwell Manor, Miles, is plagued by a family curse that changes him into a shape-shifting wolf every month during the full moon.

Lucy, a smart, attractive, and well-respected botanist, travels to Blackwell Manor to take care of her sick cousin, Kate, who is married to Miles' younger brother. For Lucy, the trip is a welcome respite from her work and recent discovery of a breakthrough serum that could eliminate the scourge of vampires from London. But Lucy finds more than she bargained for when she arrives at the Manor.

Miles, who is brash and inhospitable, does not take kindly to visitors. He is still unsettled by the mysterious death of his newlywed wife. And then there's Marie, Miles' sister, who was attacked and murdered just weeks earlier. Miles is horrified to think that he might be to blame for the deaths. And who is the ghost that haunt the halls?

Lucy is convinced that the death of Miles's wife and sister - as well as her cousin's mysterious illness - are tied together, but how? Lady Charlesworth has her eye on inheriting Blackwell Manor for her family. Could her daughter, Candice, or her son, Arthur, have had a hand in the mysterious deaths? The clues make a vampire suspect highly likely. During her investigation, Lucy finds herself caring deeply for Miles, but he fights to keep his distance in order to protect Lucy from his family's secret. And, yet, he feels attracted to the woman who is able to look past the fearsome-looking scar that has marred his handsome face. With no other option, Miles and Lucy must work together if they are to find the answer to the mysteries at the manor.

But that's not all Lucy wants to solve. There's a deeper mystery behind Miles. Can she solve that too? Ultimately, she must decide if she can love the man - beast and all.

Includes bonus novella, Marie's Story.

Wow! This book has everything...and done well!

This audiobook drew me in immediately. Everything about it was interesting, intriguing, adventurous, appealing and unique. I absolutely loved Miles and Lucy. Truly the perfect romance as well as myriads of adventure, mystery and paranormal activity. AND the narration was wonderful, allowing true discerning of who was speaking at any given time. 5 stars for sure -- and hoping for a possible sequel for Daniel and some of the other characters.

This is my third time listening to this book.

The story moves along nicely. I like the characters. The setting may throw you off at first, but the author makes it all very believable as you read/listen on. The reader is wonderful - very natural. I'm sure I'll read/listen to it again!

unique

I liked that this book was set in a unique time and era. Although, the storyline was a beauty and the best type there were so many other twists it made in interesting and enjoyable.

got a bit of everything and a dash of confusion

It's a really good plot and the reader is stellar but at the same time I felt the people in the book knew more than me. Kate's sickness seemed to take a very long time to fully manifest and yet Lucy seemed to be extremely concerned even though to start with Kate wasn't that ill, how'd she know she was getting worse? She seemed ok up till she couldn't eat anymore one day and her fingernails were discolored, it seemed so sudden to me. And the terror experienced when the ghostly sister visited her left me wondering how Lucy could barely stand after her encounter and yet feel that she meant her no harm, how'd she know that? Anyway I'm still listening and do enjoy the story but I have a lot of questions and it's pleasent to fall asleep to:) I love the reader

Captivating story and narrator.

I really enjoyed the mystery and intrigued. The characters were described beautifully and each depicted their feelings perfectly.

I loved the Steampunk element of the story. it added to the overall experience of this alternate reality.
