The Beast . . .
Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding . . . and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly humanas untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes.
The Beauty . . .
Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She'd even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lionthe menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco.
The Bargain . . .
Then Isabella met a man whose growl was velvet, purring heat, whose eyes held dark, all-consuming desire. And when the don commanded her to become his bride, she went willingly into his muscled arms, praying she'd save his tortured soul . . . not sacrifice her life.

It has elements of everything that makes a good paranormal ghost story and I found myself smiling and laughing whenever they teased each other.
This may have been a shapeshifter book but it isn’t like her other books, even The Scarletti Curse, it was something different and I loved it. It could have been just a straight up illusion but the author made it come to life.
I really love the fact that Isabella was the hero here. It’s not often that we get a female hero that doesn’t have the help of her man, except for the Drake Sisters. I especially loved that they didn’t stick to tradition and she basically allowed him free reign without freaking out.
This was full of emotion, the writing was so good that I could feel what Isabella was feeling. The pace is a tad bit slow to get going but good and the writing just pulls the reader in.
My problem with the story is the curse on Don Nicholai De Marco's family wasn't really fleshed out. We know that a De Marco was cursed by his wife Sophia just before he had her beheaded for infidelity. A bit of Anne Boylen story I guess. I would have like just a little more back story. Isabella is what? A sensitive person she can feel evil and she doesn't see Nicholai for what he really is? More information about her abilities would have been nice. Just what makes her different then anyone else? His people seem to know what he is an refuse to look upon him. Isabella is always being stalked by the evil or evil person in the palazzo. She gets in trouble chapter after chapter. I think I have more questions running in my head after my 3rd time reading this story. I have excused a lot becasue this is one of Christines Feehan's earlier works. That's probably why I didn't write a review before now. I still don't know what to really make of this story. Isabella travels in adverse circumstance to Don De Marco's land to seek help. Her brother Lucca is being held prisoner by another Don. To free her brother she agrees to marry him. I liked all of the characters and I enjoyed the plot twist at the end. The story reminds me a bit of Beauty and The Beast. The story on a whole was just OK in my opinion. It is a Stand Alone book. This is not a series.
