Beauty’s Beast is the story of Lord Erik Trevayne.  Erik is cursed the night his first wife dies.  Lord Trevayne is now changing into something less than human, and he needs an heir before his transformation is complete.  Kristine is about to go to the gallows for murder when she is spared by Erik. He takes her as his wife only so she can bear a child for him. Kristine had heard stories about the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but she is determined to try to give her marriage a chance.  Lord Trevayne isn’t looking for a true wife, but soon finds himself having feelings for Kristine. Erik cannot bring himself to let Kristine into his heart, because he believes a beauty such as she could never love a beast.

 

I both adored and pitied Erik and Kristine. They have both endured hardship, but most of all they are both consumed by loneliness. It was Kristine who really surprised me the most.  Her strength and stubbornness astounded me, but underneath that is her capability to be so caring after life had been so seemingly cruel. Erik is a caring man although he tries to be cold and indifferent. His character was so heartbreaking and yet beautiful.

 

Ashley made me feel like I was in a different time and place, and I was totally lost in the story. The thing that struck me the most was the vivid imagery, and the emotion behind it. You know an author has written something worth reading when they can bring forth the emotions in the reader that is being felt by the character. I could not put down Ashley’s enchanting version of the Beauty and the Beast story. Readers are sure to flock to this heartfelt tale!

Beauty

Fair of face and figure, Kristine is young, innocent, pure. Yet she has been condemned to the gallows for killing a man. The only one who can save her is a lord so infamous that some say he is the son of the Devil himself. . .

And the Beast

Erik Trevayne is called the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but few know of the curse he lives under. Or the terrifying changes slowly gnawing away at his humanity. When he weds her, all he wants of Kristine is a son. But when he beds her, a wild hope is born–that love that can tame even the most monstrous of beasts…
