Curse of the Beast Publisher's Summary

***Special Curse of the Beast song at the end of audiobook: "Fallen Star"!***

A dark shadow stalks the night, watching her--waiting to claim what is his.

Seventeen-year-old Tayla Jonas longs for a simple life, but after a traumatizing family loss she is forced to be both mother and sister to her cousins while caring for her mentally unstable aunt. Moving to her grandma's quiet town of Cody, Wyoming, Tayla finds some normalcy with her quirky green-activist friend, Chel, who wastes no time converting her to vegetarianism.

After a few weeks at her new school, Tayla catches the eye of Kyle Harrington, the high school quarterback and resident millionaire who can seduce any girl with his charismatic charm, including Tayla. But Kyle is anything but what he seems.

An ancient curse has her in its crosshairs, and a powerful werewolf claims her. Dismayed by the prospect of a werewolf for a shadow, Tayla fears for the safety of her friends and family. How will she keep the werewolf's insatiable hunger in check? Her plans for a vegetarian lifestyle quickly dwindle away, and Tayla wrestles to fit her frazzled life back together piece by piece. But what she didn't expect was her attraction to the werewolf or the power of the full moon.

Will Tayla be strong enough to survive the curse of the beast? Or will it consume her like so many before? Find out in the first installment of this unique retelling of Beauty and the Beast. A clean young-adult paranormal romance.
