Boredom can be a dangerous thing. Lord Bastien Sauvage has been driven nearly out of his mind with it, retired to his castle in the country. By now, he is willing to agree to anything for some entertainment, no matter how ridiculous it may seem. With his trusted friend at his side, there is no mischief they can’t get into, or trouble they can’t get out of. The world is theirs for the taking.
But on a night made dark with powers beyond comprehension, all it takes is one choice, one turn of a card, to change Bastien’s fate forever. He should have heeded the hag’s warning. Now it’s too late. Seduced by the Faery princess, haunted by dreams of a woman he can never have, Bastien discovers that there are things in this world far worse than boredom. History is penned in a human hand. Legend carries on the wicked whisper of a Faery wind. This is the story of Beauty’s Beast—told his way.

What do tarot cards, the fae and a hag have to do with Beauty and The Beast? We first met Lord Bastien Sauvage in Alianne Donnelly's "The Beast". "Bastien" tells the tale of exactly how the beast came to be cursed although to be honest I'm not so sure that it wasn't The Beast who was cursed into being Bastien. I'd read the first installment of this series "The Beast" so I was familiar with Bastien and totally prepared to continue wanting to kick him in the nuts in "Bastien". However, that was not the case b/c even though Bastien was still just as wicked as ever experiencing the story via The Beast's POV made me adore Bastien. I've always had a thing for the bad boys and trust me Bastien is as bad as they get. There's some hot sex going on so be warned you might also want to keep a hanky nearby if you're anything like me there will be times when you get misty eyed. Ms. Donnelly did an excellent job putting a new spin on Beauty and The Beast. You won't even miss the dancing candelabra.
If you've read "the beast" this is a must read, and if you haven't both are a MUST READ. "Don't believe me, ask the dishes!"
:) good read
