A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast
Author: Robin McKinley
Publisher: Open Road Media
Category: Young Adult Fiction
The New York Times–bestselling author of Rose Daughter reimagines the classic French fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast. I was the youngest of three daughters. Our literal-minded mother named us Grace, Hope, and Honour. . . . My father still likes to tell the story of how I acquired my odd nickname: I had come to him for further information when I first discovered that our names meant something besides you-come-here. He succeeded in explaining grace and hope, but he had some difficulty trying to make the concept of honour understandable to a five-year-old. . . . I said: ‘Huh! I’d rather be Beauty.’ . . . By the time it was evident that I was going to let the family down by being plain, I’d been called Beauty for over six years. . . . I wasn’t really very fond of my given name, Honour, either . . . as if ‘honourable’ were the best that could be said of me. The sisters’ wealthy father loses all his money when his merchant fleet is drowned in a storm, and the family moves to a village far away. Then the old merchant hears what proves to be a false report that one of his ships had made it safe to harbor at last, and on his sad, disappointed way home again he becomes lost deep in the forest and has a terrifying encounter with a fierce Beast, who walks like a man and lives in a castle. The merchant’s life is forfeit, says the Beast, for trespass and the theft of a rose—but he will spare the old man’s life if he sends one of his daughters: “Your daughter would take no harm from me, nor from anything that lives in my lands.” When Beauty hears this story—for her father had picked the rose to bring to her—her sense of honor demands that she take up the Beast’s offer, for “cannot a Beast be tamed?” This “splendid story” by the Newbery Medal–winning author of The Hero and the Crown has been named an ALA Notable Book and a Phoenix Award Honor Book (Publishers Weekly).

They say that once you go black, you never go back. I am not completely sure who "they" are, but they obviously never met me. I guess that maybe I am an exception to the rule. I went black, and then I went back. Maybe that sounds cynical. Maybe that sounds flippant. Maybe that even sounds racist. But I am none of those things. I am just a realist, who through an unfortunate turn of events, learned the hard way that everything is in fact black or white. At least for me it is, and always will be. But then there is Calvin King. The thorn in my side, the pain in my ass. He is what some would call the perfect man - an imposing businessman, an even more impressive ladies' man. Every man wants to be him and every woman just wants him. At least that is what I hear. I'm not admitting to anything beyond that. What I do know and will concede to, is that my resolve is tested as soon as I meet Calvin. He ticks every box off my checklist - sexy as sin, tall, dark, rich, intelligent, funny, and...Black. My body craves just the thought of him. How can I possibly keep him at arm's length when he is the only man I want and desire? And it doesn't help that he kisses like a god and sets my body on fire. Crap! Don't ask me how I know that, he doesn't play fair. Most importantly, I can't let him unmask me, it's my only defense. Like I told you before, I already went black, and I am so not going back. Unmasking Charlotte is book 2 of the Taboo Love series and picks up where Hey There, Delilah left off. For this taboo, we tackle interracial relationships. As with Hey There, Delilah, it is a standalone - so don't worry if you haven't read Hey There, Delilah, yet - with a HEA. That means no cliffhanger! Oh, and expect to see some of your favorite characters.
