When her father recklessly loses the family fortune, it looks as if Celeste Hart’s family will be forever ruined. Unless she or one of her sisters is willing to marry their distant relative, the Duke of St. Feylands, a terrifying figure she and her sisters deemed “the Beast.”

Since neither of her sisters is willing to live in St. Feyland’s foreboding castle, it falls to Celeste to make the sacrifice and visit the brute who will be her husband. With his cantankerous temper and harsh manner, the duke seems determined to make her life as miserable as possible ... and it becomes even worse when he introduces her to the charming Earl of Greenfield. The earl is better than any man she’s ever dreamed of, but she has somehow come to care for the duke and feels bound by honor and duty to her family to marry him. Fanciful balls, exquisite new clothes, and fateful beginnings... can any of it lead to a happy ending? Perhaps, if this beauty can tame her beast.
