A Victorian Twist on Beauty And The Beast

This was an interesting retelling of my favorite fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. Taking place in Victorian England, our two main characters, Georgiana and Lord Dom Pichon have something in common. They are both scarred by a fire that Dom believes was set by her family on purpose.
Enter Queen Victoria and her need of Georgiana to secure Prince Albert's Crystal Palace, but her cousin Dom sees that as a mistake. As he really does not trust Georgiana and her family no matter their ability in the best locks around. So the story picks up and I enjoyed how the author wove the old tale and it's characters into her story. Dom and Georgiana have quite the biting repertoire with one another and we are told what a beauty Georgiana is. Not all of the characters were obvious at first, but after reading and pondering for awhile, I can see the cleverness of this retelling. I also enjoyed the Gothic feel it also possessed.
This was my first author Kae novel and I have been quite interested in her work for awhile. I did enjoy the story, it moved a little slow at the beginning for me and then the tale picked up. I look forward to reading more of her work.
I was provided a copy of this novel by the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
About the Author
More from Clarissa
As a young girl most of the fairy tales talked about beauty as the only attribute but when Disney came out with Beauty and the Beast, my world was rocked. For the first time the heroine was a woman with a brain and a plan. I began researching the fairy tale and read every version. When my youngest daughter was born (with dark hair and big beautiful brown eyes) I named her Isla Belle. For as long as I can remember, I dreamed of writing a Beauty and the Beast retelling. And finally, that dream as come true.
