Editorial Reviews


"A smart and crude rendition of Beauty and the Beast."
"This is how books should be written. I had all my emotions rolled into one. I cried, I laughed, I felt all gooey, I was mad and I was happy. Once I finished with the first book, I had to rest."
"It's like beauty and the beast on crack, sex, tons of violence and equal amounts of humor."
"An amazing love story between a barbaric Mexican drug lord and a sassy young American that will make you laugh, make you cry and make you so sad that it came to an end."
" One of the best books I have read lately! It made me laugh so much."
"Pulled me in from the start. Cant wait to read book 2. Kinda like Beauty and the Beast with a sharp twist."
"If you are tired of reading predictable romances, this author is for you."

"It's now one of my favorite books of all time."
"Amazing series. Loved all four books and will definitely read anything this author puts out."

"Once you have start reading it you really can't stop.""This is my first ever review of a book and I read constantly. I believe I have found a new favorite author!!"

From the Inside Flap

Jack stands in front of us and scratchesthe back of his neck. 'Um ... eh ...' He looks at his feet then shuffles them.
'Oh, for Christ's sakes!' Elaine snaps.'What is it, Jack?'
'He wants your daughter!' Jack blurts.'Then he'll spare the village.'
With a hanging jaw, Elaine turns to look ather only begotten, whose face is the colour of alabaster right now.
'I'm not going!' Paris cries, clutching herchest with both hands.
'My baby!' Elaine shrieks, a trace ofhysteria in her voice. 'Of course you're not going! He's crazy to think he canhave you.' She shakes her head at Jack. 'The price we pay for beauty. Iexpected something like ...'
Jack draws back sharply. 'Not her. He wantsPayton.'
'What!' Paris shrieks, her arms dropping toher side. 'Her? He doesn't want ... he wants her?'
'This one?' Elaine's face contorts into asardonic smile. 'You sure?'
'Positive,' Jack says. 'We offered him anythinghe wants, but all he wants is Payton.'
'M ... me?' My mouth is dry, my hands clammy.'What about the stake ... burning ...?'
'Steak?' Jack glares at me. 'You stilltalking about food?'
I wave the confusion away. 'What's he gonnado with me?'
Jack lifts and drops his shoulders. 'ButPayton, he'll spare the entire village if you like, go with him and ... and with him ...get it? Everyone gets to live.'
'Me, live with him? He's off his rocker.'My stomach starts to flutter.
Jack frowns at me. 'Eh ... sssshhhh!'
'I mean, I thought ... like ... fuck!' I don'thave to look behind to know Diablo's staring at me. I'm so terrified of him thatI don't even want to look at him, and now he wants me to live with him.God! I feel like a deer being eyed by a pride of starving lions.
More of Diablo's men arrived in Jeeps andthe villagers huddle together.
'Where's the fire?' the men demand, visiblydisappointed at the lack of a towering inferno.
They surround Diablo and appear to bebadger him.
Diablo ignores them and stares at me.
I quickly look away.
Jack runs up to Diablo's man and has a wordwith him. Maybe he's pacifying the man - telling the man that I'm thinkingabout Diablo's indecent and fucked up proposal.
I look at the villagers, I see theirexpectant, pleading eyes and I feel overwhelmed with pressure.
Jack hurries back to me, his eyes brightand hopeful. 'Payton? What do ...?'
'You've got to be kidding! You taking thisshit seriously? Jack?'
'Please Payton,' he whispers, 'I beg you,please.'
'You ... how can expect me to say "Yes" Jack?He shot me three times. He's a killer. He eats people like me.You saw his psycho mother? I wanna get the fuck out of here, back to LA andjust get back to my normal, dull life. Please.'
Jack shifts about and drops his voice.'Payton, he likes you, he wants you. Go with him and see all those peoplethere, looking at you with pleading eyes? They get to live if you say "Yes".'
'Christ Jack!' I cover my ears with myhands. 'Don't!'
'Hey, you slapped him. It changedthings.'
'I slapped him, yeah. He had a fucking gunto my face. Now I'm to blame, huh, Jack?' I know the answer to my questionalready, but I want him to say "No".
He doesn't.
I look at my father for, well, support Iguess. His face is flushed, his forehead has beads of sweat and he looks likehe's going to have a heart attack. I quickly turn away.
Austin walks up to me. 'Payton, you don'thave to do this,' he says, his voice gentle and full of concern.
My darling Austin, attempting to rescue mewhile risking the wrath of the villagers by uttering those magical words.
'Thanks Austin,' I croak, resisting theurge to rest my weary head on his loving shoulders.
'Off course she has to!' Paris snaps. 'Shecaused it; now we're all gonna toast. She didn't have to slap the devil, butnooo, Payton's gotta be the tough chick.'
Austin quickly shrinks back.
'Fuck you, Paris!' I hiss.
Paris turns to my father. 'See? For yearsI've been saying she's bipolar, needs anger management. Now look what she'sdone.'
'What do I tell him, Payton?' Jack presses.
'Jack, I don't get it - he can very welltake me now, so why's he asking me to go with him? Huh?'
'Cos he wants you to go with him willingly,I 'spose.'
'Willingly, my ass.'
'Payton Please!' Jack cries. 'Don't saythat. He'll kill us.'
Carvil steps forward and starts begging mein Spanish.
'I don't understand what you're saying,' Isay and cover my ears with my hands. 'But whatever you're saying - the answeris "No", okay? I've had my share of hell already. I had to live with Juan and...'
Diablo drags a chair, lowers his bulk intoit and lights up another cigarette.
The burden to save the village restsheavily on my stick-insect shoulders. I could really do with another milagronow.
I turn to my father. 'Dad, say something.Talk to them. Tell them ... tell them I can't help them. Tell them I shouldn'thave to. Tell them it's too much for me.'
My father exhales loudly and looks evenmore pained.
'Daddy? Please ...' If ever I needed myfather's help, it's now. 'This is huge, daddy, I can't do it. Tell him to takeher,' I say, pointing to Paris. 'She pretty - Miss LA Diva 1999. Tellhim, I'm plain and vulgar and shy and I almost got expelled ...' When I see myfather's shoulders sag, I stop. Feeling ditched and resentful that he isn'table to help me again, I back off.
'He's giving us till seven,' Jack saysquietly, fuelling my pressure.
I look at the clock. Six fifty five.'Seven!' I jump out of my chair and start pacing. 'Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!'
Austin turns to Carvil. 'Payton shouldn'thave to ...'
'Austin!' Paris snarls. 'The Devil willkill you if you interfere. D'ya wanna die Austin? You have a baby. His name isLiam, remember?'
Austin clams up.
Elaine walks up to me and gives me asaccharine smile. 'Payton dear, it won't be forever. Just until things settle,dear. He might get bored of you after ...'
'After what Elaine - killing me? Eating myfleshy parts? Making a tea strainer out of me? One hundred years?'
Her smile vanishes. 'Payton! Now you listento me,' she snarls. 'You can do it. You are tough, you're a fighter. You are...'
'Elaine please, you're sounding like MikeTyson's coach now. I'm not that tough. 'I'm scared, okay? I'm twenty one forfucks sake!'
'Snap out it. You're never scared. You'vealways been fearless.'
'You're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong!You don't know me, Elaine.'
Diablo stands up, looks at me and starts towalk away.
The clock on the wall says 7 PM. 'Fuck!'
The flame-thrower takes his position andaims directly at the villagers. Screams of terror fill the air. I too amterrified of burning to death, but right now I'm concerned about the villagersrather than myself.
