Lyne Vanlith, an archaeologist who seeks a logical explanation to any mystery, discovers an ancient Druidic curse on her first dig. When the signs foretold by the curse descend on her, Lyne can’t find a reasonable interpretation.
And that’s even before a Beast rescues her from a monstrous sea-creature. She drops a grateful kiss on the snout of the Beast, who transforms into a man, Frederick Cunnick, Baron of Lansladron. Lyne is meant to be Beauty to his Beast—and break the curse forever.
Now both spellkeeper and monster are targeting Lyne. She must take up her legendary role, to defeat the curse and save Frederick—and herself. Instead of logic, for the first time, Lyne must trust her heart

I was lucky enough to receive this book from the publisher. I hope the prospective reader will read this review fully before making any prejudgments on the book. I will give the book my thoughts. These thoughts are completely my own and not swayed in any way by anyone else’s reviews or opinions.
I want to start off by saying that I am someone who enjoys the connection from one book to another. I think this one is a good representation of a more modern-day fairytale. I love the idea of putting Lyne in the career of archeology. As someone who is more logical and tends to follow to real evidence, it was nice to see myself in Lyne. As of recently, I have accepted the unknown in a different way. I loved the way that this book portrayed the main character diving deep into the unknown.
Although I liked the book, I feel as though there wasn’t much that was different about it. I felt I have read the same premise many times before and I find myself wanting more. I thought about it and I think I just wanted something different. This book wasn’t bad, but it was so-so. I probably will only read this book once.
My Rating: I rate this book 2 out of 5 stars. I notice that my review isn’t as detailed as usual. I believe that is because I didn’t retain as much as I would other times. The book was good, but I did think it could have more unique properties other than the career and logical side of the main character. I absolutely do not think the book was bad by any means, but it wasn’t perfect either.
