**Release Day Blitz & Giveaway ~ Beast ~ Ella James**

This is an erotic fairy tale inspired by Beauty and the Beast.

At twenty-one years old, third-generation movie star Cal Hammond was on top of the world. He had more money than God and more women than any man could need. But when a night of debauchery ends in tragedy, he forfeits a life of luxury for a ten year prison sentence at La Rosa, California’s most violent prison.

Eight years later, a ruthless, cunning man runs La Rosa from the inside. He is known simply as BEAST. All the wardens fear him. All the gangs obey him. He speaks to no one but his inner council. What he says is law.

Annabelle Mitchell’s father is the warden at La Rosa. He deals as dirty as his trustees, and after years of smooth relations with Beast and the gangs he runs, Holt lands on the powerful prisoner’s hit list. That very afternoon, Annabelle pays a surprise visit to her father’s work, hoping to use her new counseling license at a place she thinks she could make a difference. When she catches Beast’s eye, he releases the warden and grabs the daughter. The price for the warden’s error is not death. It’s his precious Belle.

  1. Beast sounds pretty darned intense, Brandee! And you know what I think about intense, right? My little devil - you know the one on my shoulder - keeps chattering away *want! Want! Want! Get it NOW!*
    I hope you had a great weekend, my dear, and that those of the kids who started school again today are off to a good start :) I hope we'll be able to chat this week, I miss you! *BIG HUGS*

    1. Oh, I can't wait for this one, Lexxie. I pre-ordered it because I loved Red & Wolfe so much. :)

  2. One of my STOMP authors recently asked what readers' favourite fairy tale was, and Beauty and the Beast won hands down, so I'm definitely intrigued by a dirtier version of this classic story. Thanks for bringing Ella James's novel to my attention, and for the giveaway!

    1. *hehe* Yeah, I voted for Beauty and the Beast. :) I hope to read this in the next few days, so hopefully my review will post soon. :)

  3. I love the contemporary sexy take on Beauty and the Beast. I need to give this series a try!

    1. I hope to read it really soon, Andrea. I loved Red & Wolfe so I'm excited to see what Ella does with Belle. :)

  4. ADDED. I am loving that you keep putting these sexy fairy tale retellings on my radar. LOVING it. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I didn't know Ella was going to continue in this vein but I really loved Red & Wolfe so I'm excited for Belle & Beast. :)
