On beautiful and beastly heroes

by Tessa Woodward

Since we’re so close to the Beauty and The Beast premiere we can taste it, I’m recommending a novella to tide you over. Tessa Dare’s Beauty and the Blacksmith will give you everything you crave! I really love this story. It has a delightful heroine, a hero with hidden depths, and an amazing love story set in Spindle Cove.

Beautiful and elegant, Miss Diana Highwood is destined to marry a wealthy, well-placed nobleman. At least that’s what her mother has loudly declared to everyone in Spindle Cove.

But Diana’s not excited by dukes and lords. The only man who makes her heart pound is the village blacksmith, Aaron Dawes. By birth and fortune, they couldn’t be more wrong for each other . . . but during stolen, steamy moments in the smithy, his strong hands feel so right.

Is their love forged strong enough to last, or are they just playing with fire?


And, after you’ve seen the new movie (multiple times!) you’ll be ready for Tessa Dare’s newest book, The Duchess Deal, out this September! It’s also a fantastic beauty and the beast story!
