Modern Retelling of Beauty and the Beast

Lovely story that is based on the Beauty and the Beast tale.


really good


i didn't really like the remake she made in the book when she referred to Kyle when he was covered from head to toe as middle eastern women did the writer go to the middle east and saw how women there dressed. not only middle eastern women dress like that ,many many women in many countries do not even Arab countries even here in states like the Amish ladies the nuns the Jewish ladies dress that way or almost that way too,why do they always have refer to all covered women as middle eastern Arab women am one and i don’t dress like that i dress in regular pants and shirts an head pieces i don t see where is the big deal about how we dress .we live in the 21st century for god sake stop making us look like we come from an different era or different plant how way to look at people .


Probably one of the best romance novels I would recommend to anyone! A rich boy turns into an ugly creature by a witch so he can become more polite towards others. To break the curse, he has to find his true love.
