After the sudden death of her father, Ruby Atwood is forced to drop out of college to care for her younger brother. Deep in debt and on the verge of desolation, Ruby resorts to some shady dealings on the streets of New Orleans in order to put food on the table for her small family. Until one night, in a dark alley, she discovers a hideous beast she could never have imagined in her darkest nightmares.
Cloaked in darkness, the Beast prowls the back alleys of New Orleans, lonely, savage, and bereft of hope, his demon clawing at him. With the man responsible for his curse now dead, the Beast seeks out the only other person who can satisfy the demon within - the man's daughter, Ruby Atwood.
Trapped, with nowhere to run, Ruby quickly realizes she must use her wits to stay alive or face certain death at the hands of a monster. But the more she tries to escape, the more she is drawn to the Beast. Desire and fear clash, creating an unforgettable story of hope, trust, and a love found only in fairytales...
