Front Cover
Zebra Books, Sep 1, 2014 - Fiction - 352 pages
“A wonderful mix of paranormal and historical romance . . . [an] utterly romantic story” from the New York Times-bestselling author of Dark of the Moon (Harlequin Junkie).

Beauty

Fair of face and figure, Kristine is young, innocent, pure. Yet she has been condemned to the gallows for killing a man. The only one who can save her is a lord so infamous that some say he is the son of the Devil himself . . .

And the Beast

Erik Trevayne is called the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but few know of the curse he lives under. Or the terrifying changes slowly gnawing away at his humanity. When he weds her, all he wants of Kristine is a son. But when he beds her, a wild hope is born—that love that can tame even the most monstrous of beasts . . .

About the author (2014)

Amanda Ashley is one of those rare birds—a California native. She’s lived in Southern California her whole life and loves it (except for the earthquakes). She and her husband share a home with a fluffy Pomeranian named Lady, a curious cat named Trouble (but who only answers to Kitty), and a tortoise who remains nameless. Amanda and her alter ego, Madeline Baker, have written over 90 books and short stories, many of which have appeared on various bestseller lists, including the New York Times Bestseller List, the Waldenbooks Bestseller list, and the USA Today list. Not bad for someone who started writing just for the fun of it. You can visit Amanda’s website at www.amandaashley.net or email her at darkwritr@aol.com.
