Brutish billionaire hermit Nero de Santis is on the hunt yet again for an in-home assistant. He has a bad habit of driving them away quickly with his outrageous demands but is intrigued by docile Brit Phoebe Taylor, the newest candidate, who has her own tough reasons for seeking an impossible job with an equally impossible salary. The two launch into a battle of wills from the start, with Nero taking any tactic to push the envelope and break Phoebe's patient demeanor. Phoebe finds herself intrigued by the temperamental recluse despite herself, and Nero is pleasantly puzzled to find someone who won't run away. As their enmity grows into something much stronger, both Phoebe and Nero must face fraught personal demons and overcome their internal obstacles to love.
VERDICT Recommended for readers seeking an adult perspective on "Beauty and the Beast," with a very modern erotic twist.
