Publisher Description

With a new name and an eagerness to begin a new life, Lila Jenner answers an ad for a governess and embarks on an adventure she did not expect. Hiding secrets and a past she longs to forget, she is disappointed to find out she has been employed to be a companion of a different sort: To a man who embodies both beauty and the beast.

Living in a gothic, crumbling manor on the edge of a North Sea cliff, Lord Simon Wolstenholme is cloistered away from society. Horribly scarred from battle wounds, the baron lives up to his infamous title "The Beast of Stonecliff" in appearance and attitude. Simon comes to the realization he's been alone too long.

 Lila and Simon bargain and agree to a brief dalliance. A storm rages outside, but it cannot compare to the clash of emotions between a lonely man and a distrustful woman. Secret desires are revealed, hearts are laid bare. Many obstacles lay ahead of them until they admit their true feelings, though pride could destroy the fairy tale before it begins.

Beauty and the Beast with a twist

Beauty and the Beast with a twist.

Simon is the Baron of Stonecliff. He’s scarred from the war and lonely for intimacy and conversation. Once, he was a handsome debauched young lord. But the war changed him to a recluse and a beast.
He hires a governess under false pretenses.

Lila Jenner used to work in a nunnery. She, too has been scarred. Lila is looking to better her life and received an education.

What she gets instead is an indecent proposal she counter offers on.

One night.
Can these two lonely, scarred people searching for true intimacy find happiness?
Highly recommend.

All the feels, ridiculously smart.
