Taming Beauty

(2016)
A novel by

 
Once upon a time, a fairy tale went terribly awry.

Raised amidst the rubble of the fairy tale that might have been, Miss Lilith Aberdeen has fashioned a life for herself on the fringes of London society. She is the very last lady likely to risk her independence or her heart on anything as fickle and frivolous as love. Or even familial affection, for that matter. So how is it she winds up journeying to the wilds of Cornwall to deliver an earl's pampered, petulant daughter into the hands of the Beast of Breckenridge?

Blame it on the scandalous, unscrupulous, dissolute Earl of Dunaway.

Jasper Grimley, Baron Malleville, has spent more than a decade living in self-imposed exile, tending his lands and waiting for his chosen bride to come of age. When his betrothed is plucked from his grasp mere months before the wedding, Jasper sets in motion a plan to turn the licentious earl's plethora of debts and profusion of daughters to his advantage. But when dealing with the earl, even the best laid plans have a tendency to fall to ruin, and Jasper soon finds himself beguiled by the wrong woman. Lilith is not the sweet, innocent, biddable bride he bargained with the devil to possess, but she just might be...

The lady destined to lead him down the primrose path to happily-ever-after.

This novel was previously published as a novella in the Once Upon A Regency: Timeless Tales and Fables Box-set. While I have expanded the story-line a tad and spiced up the naughty bits a smidgen, the story remains a frolicsome romp loosely based upon the original fairy tale written in the eighteenth century.
