Overview

Hiding secrets and a past she longs to forget, Hortense Jennings answers an ad for a governess and embarks on an adventure she did not expect.

Concealed in a gothic, crumbling manor on the edge of a North Sea cliff, Baron Simon Wolstenholme is hiding from life. Horribly scarred from battle wounds, he lives up to his name “The Beast of Stonecliff” in both appearance and attitude until he realizes how lonely he has become.

Simon propositions Hortense for a singular night of passion. Raging weather and storms of anger clash between a lonely man and a distrustful woman to reveal secret desires in an emotional crescendo. Can the Governess and the Beast find calm amid the storm and admit their true feelings, or will pride destroy the fairy tale before it begins?

    Loved it

    I loved this novella, the hero and heroine were both lonely needed to be accepted and loved for who they were. I was so happy he asked her one more time to stay!!!!! Highly Recommend!!! Now if only B&N can fix The Blind Cupid to be in English instead of Spanish!!!!

    excellent novella of scars, inside and out and how passion and ultimately love can overcome them. Yes, this is an erotic romance, but the key word here is romance, and this story delivers.

    Not just a romance

    Warning: This is an erotic romance. Not for teens. I enjoyed the story, but it was too graphic for me and I am no prude. This really needs to be labeled erotic.
