In the world of fairy tales, being wicked has never felt so good...
Bargain with the Beast
Desperate to keep her neighborhood community center open, Gwendolyn Sinclair seeks out Xavier St. James, her childhood friend...and brother of her dead fiancé. Xavier possesses the funds necessary to keep the center open, but he offers another bargain-a devil's bargain: submit her body to his pleasure for seven days and the building doesn't close its doors.
Left scarred from an accident, Xavier is bitter, resentful and alone. When Gwendolyn reappears in his life, need and loneliness overrides conscience and he proposes an arrangement she can't afford to refuse. With the woman he has always wanted-but could never have-finally in his bed, he hungers for more. Her heart. But could she come to love a beast?
A Perfect Fit
For no-nonsense, less-than-warm Rowyn Jeong, being labeled the plainer, wicked stepsister has never bothered her...until Darius Fiore reappears in her life. Months ago, they indulged in a hot one-night stand, and the sexy business tycoon branded her like no man had before. But his return threatens her position within her stepfather's company, and he's the man her stepsister Cindy has within her sights-and hands.
Behind closed doors, Daruis discovered more lay beneath Rowyn's hard exterior than the ice queen she presents to her family. Now, he understands the aloof reserve. Her family's disregard has left her hungry for love and acceptance. But breaking down her walls will be no easy task. Especially since his presence threatens everything she's worked so hard to achieve.
Beware. These aren't your mother's bedtime stories...

Bargain with the Beast 5 stars I love!!!! Books with a Disney theme. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite stories. This is a great representation of that tale! Xavier makes a great beast. Half disfigured after an accident and grumpy as all get out because of it, he needs light in his life to remind him who he is. Gwen is a very caring soul with a guilt ridden past. When she can confront that, she lights the light for Xavier. The story is full of Oh My moments, tender moments and down and dirty naughty moments. Well worth the read! A perfect fit 5 stars Nothing better than the ugly step sister getting the guy! And standing up for herself, becoming her own just adds icing to the cake. Rowyn has had an ugly life. With a family who would rather her not exist and a step-dad/boss who gives her zero credit and zero consideration. It's fun to watch her icy personality thaw and come to life. The story starts off with steam , in the middle you have more heat and you end with an inferno. Very well written!
