"With Southern charm and a deeply romantic plot, readers will fall in love with this modern day fairy tale." --RT BOOK REVIEWS 

From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery...

In this modern-retelling of "Beauty and the Beast," Savannah Carmichael, betrayed by an unreliable source, returns to her hometown of Danvers, Virginia with her once-promising journalism career in ruins. Given the opportunity to get back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn't been seen since. 

After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher's hand and disfigured half of his face, he's lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy...that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress with a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feeling things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn't felt in years. 

Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other's hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they'll have to decide if the love they found in one another's arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after. 

** Contemporary Romance. Due to profanity, realistically depicted scenes of war and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract, and Katy's first novel was published in September 2013.

Forty books later, Katy claims authorship of the multititled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other stand-alone novels and novellas, including the critically acclaimed, 2018 RITA© nominated, USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Unloved, a love story.

Katy's first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy's boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy's Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, became a New York Times e-book bestseller.

Katy's books are available in English, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Turkish. Her books soon will be available in German and Hebrew.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese cat create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

WOW!! I have always been emotionally touch by stories that involve wounded veterans but Katy Regnery has taken it to a whole new level! This book is absolutely fantastic! A wonderfully written story with in-depth characters that is told with such caring and passion, I could not put it down. I laughed and cried as two struggling lonely souls find love only to be torn apart. There is longing, hurt, regret, devastation and anger but there is also a beautiful love story as Savannah and Asher embark on an emotionally packed journey to find acceptance, trust and love. This is one book you do not want to miss out on, you will not be disappointed! Received copy for review.

The Vixen And The Vet by Katy Regnery has to be one of the most beautiful and captivating stories that I have read this year. Asher Lee was the golden boy of Danvers, VA while growing up. He lost his parents when he was young but he worked through the grief and wnt on to college. Then he joined the military because he wanted to give back to his country. He was severly injured by an IED while trying to rescue another soldier. After multiple surgeries he came home to Danvers without his right hand, one ear and severe scarring of his face. Because of his horrific injuries he was not welcomed back by the people of this small town and he became a recluse. He was such a strong character who deeply loved his country and literally gave almost everything. Savannah Carmichael has returned to Danvers in disgrace. She was fired from her reporting job in NYC (her dream job) after writing a story based on inaccurate information from a current boyfriend. She was a strong and independent woman who now felt like a failure. She gets another opportunity to write for a paper doing a human interest piece on a veteran for the 4th of July edition. She picks Asher and that's when their story begins. This story is a very special romantic and emotional love story between two people who have lost their way in the world. It's not all sadness. There are lighter moments as Savannah and Asher begin to know each other. The secondary characters in this story were so important to the storyline. Mrs. Potts, Scarlet, Trent and his brother Lance were so well developed they were integral to the story and Savannah and Asher's growth. I want to thank Katy for her treatment of Asher, which will reflect onto other soldiers who come home disfigured/scarred from serving their country. I also want to thank Katy for donating 50% of the books proceeds through June and July to Operation Mend. This is a really terrific read that will not disappoint any one who enjoys a romance novel with some laughter and a whole lot of emotional growth. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I'm not finished with this one and I am buying everything else this author has written as soon as I finish this review. I was already inclined to rate it highly just because of the proceeds from the book being donated to Operation Mend. What a lovely bonus that Ms. Regnery is a talented storyteller as well as charitable person. I fell in love with Asher, fell in serious sisterhood like with Savannah (although it's a quintessential southern name, to be sure, I went the OTHER southern route and gave both my children Biblical names like Asher's mother did for him). I'm 7th generation military, with all the life lessons in duty and honor and loyalty that should imply ingrained in me. If Ms. Regnery continues to write, she will always be able to claim that her books have sold, because I will buy every single one of them.

5 Stars for The Vixen & the Vet, but this really deserves 6++ Stars! The Vixen & the Vet was perfect from page one! From the beginning this story drew me in and I hated to put it down. The Vixen & the Vet is the story about Asher Lee and Savannah Carmichael who are both struggling with heartache. Asher is soldier that was injured in Afghanistan. Savannah Carmichael is a reporter that lost her job and credibility. Both return home to hide from the world but instead find each other. Asher is suffering from physical pain but that is not the focus of this story. His injuries are extensive but it’s his loneliness that really moved me. Asher has only Miss Pots, his appointed guardian from when his parents were killed. Instead of the town supporting and honoring a veteran, they cringe at the sight of him and call him names. This was so upsetting. So for me The Vixen & the Vet isn’t just a love story. It’s opened my eyes and increased my respect for all the men and women of our military.  The Vixen & the Vet was so well written, the story flowed smoothly and at a great pace that kept me intrigued. The romance scenes were steamy and sexy. The interactions with the characters were funny and heartwarming. And I loved the supporting characters, Miss Pots and Judy Carmichael (Savannah’s mother). Both women are loving and gave sound advice to Asher and Savannah. There is a scene with Judy and her blue ribbons that brought me to tears. With each new book from Katy Regnery I get more impressed with her writing. She surprises me with how creative she is. First it was the text messages in Midsummer Sweetheart (Heart of Montana #2) and now with The Vixen & the Vet it is the references to Beauty and the Beast and the use of the “most important milestones” headings that tied the entire story. These little touches add uniqueness to her stories which keep coming back to her for more. The Vixen & the Vet is a great story and my new favorite from Katy Regnery. This is a book I would read over and over again! I recommend this to everyone!

I've never been disappointed with Regenry's work, and this one just really hit the spot. It's sweet, moves forward, and has enough quirks that it stands apart from the typical rewrites of fairytales. There's a definite beauty and the beast feel to it, but it in no way 'predicts' or inhibits the storyline.  As a milspouse myself, I can say that I approve of the veteran aspect, and also say that this is the best pick-up-and-feel-good kind of romance I've seen in awhile. Only if you like lots and lots of steam, of course. LOTS OF STEAM.

Two Wounded Souls Finding Love and Acceptance First off, for the months of June and July 50% of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to Operation Mend, which is used to help wounded veterans. This is absolutely a beautifully told story of a wounded veteran, Asher Lee, who came home from Afghanistan after being severely injured by an IED, losing his right hand, injuring his right leg and disfiguring the right side of his face. After a year in the hospital in Texas, he comes back home to Danvers, VA to the family estate. Asher is alive, but by no means is he living. He is an empty shell of a man who has been physically and mentally devastated by his loss and disfigurement. Savannah Carmichael, was a young journalist who had left Danvers, VA for NYC and after college worked for the Sentinel newspaper, her dream. But she accepting information from her boyfriend and called it reliable source, that was anything but. Patrick had used her and she was expendable to save his family. She has come home to lick her wounds. A journalist friend puts her in touch with the Editor for a Phoenix newspaper and she accepts an assignment with possible employment. I am not going to tell the story, instead I am going to say that this is such a beautiful and moving story, one that is full of love, laughter and heartache. It is a story you need to read, it is Asher and Savannah's story.

An awesome story of two people struggling through hard times finding love and purpose in each other. This is a very intricate story and shows us how important it is to look past the surface and really get to know the person. Recommended read.

Subterfuge, or lack of honesty, will bite you in the butt, especially when you're in a romance novel. Each opening themselves up to the world and to each other was a wonderful journey.

Any story that can still make a 70 year old woman cry must be wonderful. My first Katy book but not my last.

The book was wonderful, and it's a shame most vets are treated so badly after they serve our country to give us are freedom

This author really understands the terror our vets go through coming home broken and beat up by society! I am a married woman of a veteran from Vietnam. The hell they received is just now starting to be rectified . Wonderful reading!

Couldn't stop reading I have read other books that were adapted from fairy tales but I so enjoyed this one. Asher decided to become an Army Medic after 9-11 and was injured helping a fellow soldier. He lost a hand and has disfigurement on the side of his face. Savannah comes home after humiliation from her ex and loss of her job. She is helping her sister with her wedding. She has a chance for a new job doing a life style piece for 4th of July for a Phoenix paper. That is what brings them together.
