New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen Ranney tells a beauty and the beast story of true love.
Alex Weston returned from the Seven Years War knowing that he was the beast. His next door neighbor, Laura Blake, never saw him that way. Instead, she'd always secretly adored the man, enough to do something scandalous - pretend to be a maid in Alex's home.
Laura was determined to coax Alex from his hermitage and demonstrate that love can overcome any obstacle. Through sheer determination she did exactly that.
Fate, however, stepped in to change their lives again and it was Alex, this time, who had to show Laura the power of love.
