A Victorian Twist on Beauty And The Beast

Bold and brilliant, Georgiana has a gift for fixing machines—from clocks to carriages—while her father has a penchant for finding trouble. In an accidental fire, Georgiana and her father scar the once handsome face of Lord Pichon, cousin to the queen.
Rumors of Georgiana’s gift raise her family’s status. Her incomparable beauty captures the eye of many gentlemen and the wrath of Lord Pichon. Abandoned by his peers and alone in his cold castle, Lord Pichon is determined to enact revenge.
When Georgiana’s father makes a terrible mistake, she sacrifices herself to pay his debt—as a lowly maid in Lord Pichon’s castle.
Her wit and warmth begin to thaw Lord Pichon’s estate, making him question his version of the past. Will her kindness break the beastly lord or will he hold her family hostage forever?

Clarissa Kae has taken a Childhood Classic, Beauty and the Beast
and retold it in a Victorian and Historical genre. A Dark Beauty
is Book 1 in the new series by Clarissa Kae, Victorian Retellings. 

Georgiana has a gift of being able to fix machines. She really 
enjoys fixing just about anything that she can get her hands on. 
Her father has a knack for finding trouble or trouble finding him. 
An accidental fire, has her father and Georgiana injuring Lord Pichon, 
the cousin to the queen. Lord Pichon wants to make her father 
"pay" for his actions and tries to hold him hostage. Georigiana
would rather take her father's place, so she offers up herself
to be a "maid" to the Pichon estate. Lord Pichon has always 
been a "loner", but Georigiana has a great personality that 
is starting to "soften" Lord Pichon and the estate. Will Lord Pichon
realize that he doesn't need to be a "loner"? Will Georgiana
be able to save her family with her beautiful personality and 
softening the hearts of the Pichon estate? 

I am one who likes reading the classics and enjoy them. I for some 
reason just couldn't get into this book and enjoy it as much as I have
enjoyed the Classics. The storyline of Georgiana and her beautiful
personality is great. I just couldn't get fully into the book. The Author
has a good writing style. I do like the setting and time period and I did
find it enjoyable at points. I do think there is an audience for this book
and many will LOVE it. I do LIKE it, I just couldn't love it! Good book!

More from Clarissa

As a young girl most of the fairy tales talked about beauty as the only attribute but when Disney came out with Beauty and the Beast, my world was rocked. For the first time the heroine was a woman with a brain and a plan. I began researching the fairy tale and read every version. When my youngest daughter was born (with dark hair and big beautiful brown eyes) I named her Isla Belle. For as long as I can remember, I dreamed of writing a Beauty and the Beast retelling. And finally, that dream as come true.

To celebrate her tour, Clarissa is giving away to two winners one $25 Amazon gift card each!!
