While at RT I got the opportunity to sit and chat with author Jennifer Paris. I had not heard of her before but was very intrigued by her swag :) I first met her in Club RT a place where readers got to sit and chat with different authors. The authors rotated in about very 45 minutes of so. During this time they would sit and discuss their books and pretty much anything you wanted to talk to them about. I sat at Jennifer's table because of an author I recognized and then leaned over her way and complimented her on her bookmarks she had with her (same as pic/book cover art) she handed me over one and asked if I enjoyed BDSM and fairy tales retold (hmmmm.... let me think.... HELL YEAH!). Attached to the bookmark was a cute mini pink thumbdrive with the book on it. I thanked her and we chatted for a bit, she is a very friendly and funny person I can't wait to see more from her. Jennifer writes for Loose-ID under her pen name Jennifer Paris she also write under Jeffe Kennedy and has won several awards, see her bio below.
I started the book this morning when I woke, Damn insomnia never lets me sleep, but I guess it's good that I have a reading addiction otherwise who knows what I would do - lol. Anyway I was clicking through my Kindle and saw that I had loaded the book, Woo-Hoo for me :) So I turned on my light and started to read.
I quickly fell for the beast, he was amazing character that was both strong and gentle at the same time, by the end I was panting for him myself. Amarantha (beauty for all intense purposes) is a young naive girl who no experience and quickly learns that she has a craving for what the beast is offering her, WOW and so did I!!
Really enjoyed this Short Novella you can pick it up through Amazon $4.79 and Loose-ID $4.99
In exchange for her father’s life, Amarantha agrees to marry the dreadful Beast and be his wife for seven days. Though the Beast cannot take Amarantha’s virginity unless she begs him to, he can and does take her in every other way. From the moment they are alone together, the Beast relentlessly strips Amarantha of all her resistance.
If Amarantha can resist her cloaked and terrifying husband, she gains his entire fortune and will be allowed to return to her family and a normal life. But the Beast seduces her at every turn, exposing, binding, tormenting, and pleasuring Amarantha until she no longer knows her own deepest desires.
Increasingly desperate to break the curse that chains his humanity, the Beast drives Amarantha past every boundary. But her desire for a normal life may jeopardize the love that will save them both.
