RT Rating

Marzec gives the reader yet one more take on the age-old story, "Beauty and the Beast." Unfortunately, she brings nothing really new to the tale, which leaves the reader feeling that they have been cheated into reading a much less entertaining version of the original.

Victoria Billingford is
traveling home to Pennsylvania
to meet Tadeusz Hermanowski, the
man that she had married by proxy
six weeks ago. It seems her cousin,
Paul, lost Victoria's family home as
well as Victoria's freedom in a gambling debt to Thadeusz. Victoria left home nine years before when her
mother drowned and Victoria was
considered a suspect by some. Her
first marriage was horrible and
Victoria doesn't have much hope
that this one will be any better.

Thadeusz has his own reasons
for wanting this marriage to
succeed. Cursed by a witch years before, Thadeusz must find love
before his 33rd birthday, or he
will become a wolf forever. With
only four days to break the curse, Thadeusz is dismayed to find
Victoria beautiful, as he knows
that no beautiful woman will fall in
love with his hairy, beast-like looks. He, however, falls for Victoria, and when it seems that someone is trying
to drive her mad he is determined to save her. The only question is: Can Victoria learn to love the beast in
time to save him from life as a wolf? (NEW CONCEPTS, Apr., 179 pp., $10.99)
