You only thought you knew the story of Beauty and the Beast.

When Bella's father runs into the woman known as the Beast, she agrees to take his place as a prisoner for the next six months. Plenty of time to get out of her pending marriage to the son of the village's wealthiest family.

When Bella is sent a list of demands and rules, one rule stood out: DON'T FALL IN LOVE.

That seemed simple enough, for who could fall in love with a Beast?



Ms. Anna turned her face up and started to kiss her, her knees holding Bella’s arms in place. “No touching unless I say,” Ms. Anna told her, kissing Bella once more, grinding harder against her. Bella started to feel something trickle down her lower lips, unsure whether it was from Ms. Anna or herself. Ms. Anna kept kissing her, her tongue pushing down Bella’s throat. Her body rubbing against Bella’s, the scars on Ms. Anna’s inner thighs strangely erotic. Bella started to sink into the mattress , letting Ms. Anna take what she wanted. Kissing Ms . Anna in return, gliding her tongue across Ms. Anna’s. Was her tongue getting longer? Holy hell, Bella whimpered as the tongue slid down her throat. Bella struggled against the unfamiliar sensation. “You agreed to let me do what I wanted,” Ms. Anna reminded her. “This is going to be your life from now until I release you. If I ever do.” Ms. Anna once more kissing Bella , sliding her tongue inside Bella’s throat once more.


How did you come up with the title?
Since it was a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, I checked to see different ways to say Beauty and Bella was one of them.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
That love is love and if you’re lucky to find that one person or persons, than to embrace it.
What books have most influenced your life?
Omg too many to name.
What book are you reading now?
Hmm, I’ve been in the writing cave for a long time. Crystal Benedict is a slave driver.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Hmmm, I love AM Harford, Candi Fox
What are your current projects?
Currently I’m working on a couple things. Devil Gate Drive, a contemporary series that will be set in a small town in Washington state.
I’m also working on a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood called Grandma’s Cottage. It’s a MMF and Grandma’s cottage isn’t selling cookies.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Can you share a little of your current work with us?
yeah sure, this is very rough because I’m about half-finished
From Devil Gate Drive:
“What’ll you have?” asked the guy behind the bar.
“A lobotomy to forget the last couple years of my life,” answered Lexie Kincaid, wishing for the thousandth time that her streak of bad luck would end.
“Break-up?” he asked sympathetically. He really was sort of cute.
“That’s been the highlight of the past few months,” she replied. “But everything is just getting worse. I thought my luck was changing when I was called for an interview in Vancouver, but should have known it was too good to be true?”
“Didn’t get the job?”
“Haven’t even made it there, I turned into the exit ramp to get something to eat, and my tire blew out. Now it’s in the repair shop, here in, where the fuck am I?”
“Seaside Cove,” he replied.
“Seaside Cove, with who knows how much it will cost, because apparently something is wrong with my brakes too,” said Lexie. “So, what do you suggest that will give me at least temporary amnesia?”
“I’ve got the answer,” he grinned. Putting a bottle of tequila on the bar and a shot glass.
“Maybe I shouldn’t, I can barely afford a happy meal right now,” replied Lexie, looking longing at the shot.
“Excuse me,” said a woman sitting next to her. “I couldn’t help hearing you.”
