Description

Like the classic Beauty and the Beast, this steampunk romance features an unlikely love story.

The Lord of Blackwell Manor, Miles, is plagued by a family curse that changes him into a shape-shifting wolf every month during the full moon.

Lucy, a smart, attractive, and well-respected botanist, travels to Blackwell Manor to take care of her sick cousin, Kate, who is married to Miles' younger brother. For Lucy, the trip is a welcome respite from her work and recent discovery of a breakthrough serum that could eliminate the scourge of vampires from London. But Lucy finds more than she bargained for when she arrives at the Manor.

Miles, who is brash and inhospitable, does not take kindly to visitors. He is still unsettled by the mysterious death of his newlywed wife. And then there's Marie, Miles' sister, who was attacked and murdered just weeks earlier. Miles is horrified to think that he might be to blame for the deaths. And who is the ghost that haunt the halls?

Lucy is convinced that the death of Miles's wife and sister - as well as her cousin's mysterious illness - are tied together, but how? Lady Charlesworth has her eye on inheriting Blackwell Manor for her family. Could her daughter, Candice, or her son, Arthur, have had a hand in the mysterious deaths? The clues make a vampire suspect highly likely. During her investigation, Lucy finds herself caring deeply for Miles, but he fights to keep his distance in order to protect Lucy from his family's secret. And, yet, he feels attracted to the woman who is able to look past the fearsome-looking scar that has marred his handsome face. With no other option, Miles and Lucy must work together if they are to find the answer to the mysteries at the manor.

But that's not all Lucy wants to solve. There's a deeper mystery behind Miles. Can she solve that too? Ultimately, she must decide if she can love the man - beast and all.

Includes bonus novella, Marie's Story.

Wow! This book has everything...and done well!

This audiobook drew me in immediately. Everything about it was interesting, intriguing, adventurous, appealing and unique. I absolutely loved Miles and Lucy. Truly the perfect romance as well as myriads of adventure, mystery and paranormal activity. AND the narration was wonderful, allowing true discerning of who was speaking at any given time. 5 stars for sure -- and hoping for a possible sequel for Daniel and some of the other characters.

Fun mysteries

There are 3 fun mysteries interwoven nicely as well as shifters, vampires, ghosts and steampunk inter mingling without overdoing any.

The narrator is good, too. She performed well and gave life to the characters without extremes or overacting. I appreciated that she did not try to do men's voices. It can be very annoying to try to envision a very masculine character while hearing the voice of a girl sounding like she is trying to imitate her father.

Overall, an enjoyable experience.

Very entertaining

I went into this book really wanting it to be good, and I was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I thought it was well performed, and the story itself is very well paced. The romance is clean but still compelling. And the mystery element to this book took me by surprise but drove the story along really well. Though this book is based on Beauty and the Beast, it does not stick so much to the story that it gives away any part of the story. I highly recommend

Definitely worth reading!!!

Great audiobook...loved the narration...she was able to give distinguished voices for each character which made it so easy to follow. She also was able to portray the character’s emotions and made everything easy to visualize.
Make sure you listen to this one....you won’t be sorry.

Steampunk fun

As a huge fan of Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series, I was very happy to stumble across this book. The story setting/ world is interesting and you're not drowned with pages upon pages of world building, instead you come across a lot of the pertinent information quite naturally. I always enjoy smart, accomplished and capable women paired with gruff dudes. I'm excited to continue to read more stories in this setting and just downloaded the sequel yesterday!
