Richard Blackthorne is a bitter, desolate man who has locked himself away from the world in a dreary tower he calls home. His chiseled features are scarred, as a result of performing a heroic deed four years ago. Upon his former wife's death, he is shocked to learn he has a four year old daughter. Knowing his hideous disfigurement will prevent him from providing the close loving care his daughter will require he reluctantly decides to hire a nanny. He never dreamed the nanny would come in the form of a green-eyed goddess, Laura Cambridge.

Former beauty queen Laura Cambridge is seeking escape from a broken heart. She accepts a nanny position to serve Richard Blackthorne's lonely daughter. Richard is rumored to be a hulking recluse, but instead she finds a man of passion, mystery, and intrigue. Will she be able to convince him that his scars are badges of courage? Will her love be enough to set his tortured soul free - the beast rescued by the beauty and rewarded with her heart?

Amy J. Fetzer does an exquisite job in creating this enchanting novel. Laura and Richard each compliment one another because they both fully understand beauty is only skin deep. In the fashion of the much loved 'Jane Eyre' readers will discover an emotional modern day 'Beauty and the Beast' tale. So memorizing unforgettable it will leave you craving for more.
