Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge

author: Lisa Jensen

They say Ch‚teau Beaumont is cursed. But servant-girl Lucie canít believe such foolishness about handsome Jean-Loup Christian Henri LeNoir, Chevalier de Beaumont, master of the estate. But when the chevalier's cruelty is revealed, Lucie vows to see him suffer. A wisewoman grants her wish, with a spell that transforms Jean-Loup into monstrous-looking Beast, reflecting the monster he is inside. But Beast is nothing like the chevalier. Jean-Loup would never patiently tend his roses; Jean-Loup would never attempt poetry; Jean-Loup would never express remorse for the wrong done to Lucie. Gradually, Lucie realizes that Beast is an entirely different creature from the handsome chevalier, with a heart more human than Jean-Loupís ever was. Lucie dares to hope that noble Beast has permanently replaced the cruel Jean-Loup ó until an innocent beauty arrives at Beastís ch‚teau with the power to break the spell.
Filled with magic and fierce emotion, Lisa Jensen's multilayered novel will make you question all you think you know about beauty, beastliness, and happily ever after.
