My Teaser for this week is from

Of Beast And Beauty

by Stacey Jay



Genre: Fantasy / Romance

 My teaser from page in the Paperback.

The roses are tired of being teased with a drop or two of what they crave; they grow eager for a proper feeding.

“It isn’t time,” I whisper as I pass them by.


Read on if you want to know more.


For Cinder fans, a fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast with a flipped script in which the Beauty becomes the Beast . . .

It’s pointless. Hopeless. Even if she weren’t afraid of me, we’ll always be enemies at the core. . . .

In the city of Yuan, the blind Princess Isra is raised to be a human sacrifice. Her death will ensure her city’s vitality.

In the desert, a mutant beast named Gem fights to save his people, known as the Monstrous, from starvation.

Neither dreams that, together, they can return balance to their worlds.
When Gem is captured for trying to steal Yuan’s enchanted roses, he becomes a prisoner of the city. Isra enlists his help, and soon begins to care for him—and to question everything she has been brought up to believe. . . .
She’s a queen; I’m her prisoner. I am her monster and she is mine. . . .



How about you? Got a tease? Tell me!
