Helping run a social media empire is just an average day for Alana Rose Beaumont, but she didn’t anticipate being kidnapped and held by rivals. The kidnapping, however, was actually a rescue from an assassination attempt—and the perfect way to meet the brooding and obsessive Thorn Beathach. Being held at the seaside mansion of a man she knows nothing about—but who knows nearly everything about her—is not enjoyable for Alana, although reading from Thorn’s bountiful library about the crystals and magic that fuel their worlds is almost as intriguing as learning about the scarred and brooding man who claims to own her, heart and soul. But bodies start piling up, and those who threaten Alana and Thorn, as well as any future they might have together, start getting bolder. It’s up to the social-media darling and the beastly antihero to secure their futures and keep Alana safe from the threat chasing her.
VERDICT Zanetti (Frostbitten) launches a new series with this shadowy and violent twist on “Beauty and the Beast” that will appeal to readers looking for a uniquely magical world filled with seduction and betrayal.
