“Do you know how to get to the rose garden?”
“No, you can’t go there. A monster lives there.”

Shaw Hollander is desperate.
Broke, unemployed, and determined to help his ailing mother, he falls on the good graces of a wealthy benefactor who is willing to give Shaw a job at his mansion in order to pay off his mother’s debts. Suddenly finding himself surrounded by lavish riches, he has no idea what his duties truly entail until he’s sent to the rose garden and meets the tragically mutilated Isobel.

This Beauty and the Beast story holds true to the core of the fable while shaking off the element of fantasy and dragging it into present day reality. Shaw and Isobel are ready to let you climb into their four-wheel-drive pickup and take a ride with them into their version of happily ever after, but only if you first dare to gaze upon the monster among the roses.

May 22, 2017 - This is the beginning of a new quartet (4 books in one series) called Linda's Fairy Tale Quartet. Each story will be contemporary adult retellings of a different fairy tale, different couple, but they'll be interconnected enough you'll know people from other books. They'll also be able to be read as standalones! Book one will be the retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Working title: Monster Among the Roses! Rough Draft is completed.
