Overview

A desperate beauty enslaved . . .

Nadia Bessonova's career-criminal father has deadly enemies—and to save him, his devoted daughter is willing to make a bargain with the devil himself. She will surrender completely, body and spirit, to the dangerous Dominic Luder, and submit to his every whim.

A tormented beast enthralled . . .

Haunted by inner demons and hiding away in his dark, secluded manor, Dominic is mesmerized by his sensuous prisoner who inflames his bestial lust. But Nadia is no mere plaything. At once fearful, willing, and wildly passionate, she brings his most breathtaking erotic fantasies to life—and thaws his cold, wounded heart.

A perilous path to a happy ending . . .

But Nadia never dreamed she'd become slave to her own desires in a savage game of seduction and revenge. And now that he has tasted ecstasy, will a jealous, magnificent beast be able to relinquish his prize?

    This is an intriguing erotic take on "Beauty and the Beast"

    The Bessonova family patriarch is a career criminal whose prime employment is stealing cars though selling his daughters either as mail order brides as he did Irina when she was eighteen or even whoring them out is not beneath him. His three daughters Nadia, Jelena and Irina love and hate their father though they appreciate living in Vegas and not Kiev.

    However, Papa Bessonova purloins the wrong vehicle as the owner is dangerous Dominic Luder, who wants an arm and a leg literally from the thief as he did papa's partner Roddy. Even with Papa's wife carrying Dominic does not give a pregnant pause for what he will do to the thief who should have researched who owned the car. Her father may be afraid of the beast, who seeks to teach him a lesson, but courageous yet fearful Nadia offers her body willingly to the beast in remittance; he accepts her offer as he plans to tame the beauty.

    This is an intriguing erotic take on "Beauty and the Beast" that begins gloomy as readers meet an unlikable family especially father and a seemingly despicable beast. When Nadia leaves with Dominic, the story line takes off as they battle for supremacy until love levels the paying field. The other sisters also come a long way baby as married Jelena finds her craving and Irina moves on after being dumped for the replacement teen. Although dad is a worthless dreck from start to finish, fans will enjoy the taming of the beast.

    Its a good quick read

    This was my first book by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was funny, suspensful, and challenging. The main characters become developed and you begin to cheer for the "bad guy". The romance was good and the love sceens were developed. It's an easy read on a evening night in front of a fireplace with a glass of your favorite wine. Enjoy because I truly did.

    I Also Recommend:

    A wonderful "new age" interpretation of the age old tale of Beauty and the Beast - with the perfect amount of sizzle.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns that Yardley used to modernize her version of famed story of Beauty and the Beast. Nadia and Dominic were written so well, you truly got sucked into their struggles of finding love together. This is the perfect book for curling up with a cup of hot cocoa on a rainy day.
