Claws. Long, filthy, and dangerously sharp. They're the first thing Bella sees after what's been the worst day of her life. If Bella were the quintessential Beauty--gorgeous, kindhearted, and self-sacrificing--she might have a chance at transforming this monster into a man, but she's never been the toad-kissing kind. Obsessed with landing a wealthy nobleman and escaping her humdrum life, Bella will stop at nothing to achieve her goals. Which is precisely what landed her here, at the mercy of the Beast. In this imaginative retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Bella's sense of entitlement strains both her family's finances and patience. As punishment for her selfishness, she's sent into the Beast's service where she must choose whether to follow the path she's always dreamed of--or risk it all for something even greater.
