Once unmasked, can beauty love the beast?…
My name is Lena Seagull. I should still be in school, hanging out with friends, meeting boys, falling in love—just like you. But on my eighteenth birthday my father sold me. Now, those are yesterday’s dreams.
My home is now a remote castle. And the man who owns me? I have never seen him.
Guy Hawke keeps his face hidden under a mask. At first, I knew only fear, but now his voice and touch make me unashamedly want him. Each night, his hired help blindfolds me, and takes me to his room. He whispers that I am beautiful and we have wild, torrid sex. When I awaken he is always gone.
He and his castle hold dark secrets that I must unravel, but what he fears most—being unmasked—is my deepest desire.
Will either of us survive the consequences of my desire? (Goosdreads)
|it feels like i went back to 80s or 90s while i read this. It is the mix of classic and modern story. Or i can say it is the modern of Beauty and The Beast. I knew the end of the story like this, but I still read it carefully. I follow the plot where it took me because it doesn’t mean that i know what will happen next to the characters. I love the way the author wrote the story, you’ll find the thriller, the mystery, and the romance in it. What i love the most about this book is it feels like I became Lena while I read it. The emotions were real to me. Thanks, Georgia 🙂|
