"Grayson deftly nods to pop culture and offers clever spins on classic legends and lore while adding unique twists all her own."—Booklist Starred Review for Wickedly Charming
Grayson's eighth fairy tale romance (after Wickedly Charming) reinvents a famous villain as a truly romantic hero. The notorious Bluebeard, now called Blue, is plagued by horrific memories of killing his wives. Realizing that anyone who loves him is doomed to die horribly, Blue becomes a raging alcoholic and stops bathing, fighting his Prince Charming nature any way he can. The only one who believes in him is Cantankerous Belle, or Tank (not Tink!) for short. When a man claiming to be Bluebeard begins threatening women, Tank hires Jodi Walters, Hollywood's #1 magical problem solver, to find him and clear Blue's name. Jodi's hesitant to get involved with a legendary serial killer, but after she tracks Blue down in rehab, she realizes he's an attractive, vulnerable man who may be the victim of a curse. A beguiling mystery is matched in power by the palpable and forbidden attraction between Jodi and Blue, making this one of the best series installments to date.
