The Beauty’s Beast

Sequel to The Beast's Beauty

by R. Phoenix

“He was breaking me, even if it was slower than when I’d been his pup. Even if I’d started to like it sometimes… Or maybe it was because I’d started to like it.”

Kidnapped by a formerly popular musician, Ryder slowly loses himself in the trap Griffin has set for him. Stripped of his life, his dignity, and even his name, he fights to cling to what little he can of what he was. But as Griffin starts to soften toward “Toby,” Ryder finds himself wondering if being with the man is really so bad…

“I wanted him to submit, not out of fear, but out of desire. But if desire wasn’t possible, I would settle for what I could get.”

Desperate for a companion who could look past his scars, Griffin arranged for the kidnapping of a college student: “Toby.” As Toby resists becoming his pup and starts to become his kitten instead, Griffin must evaluate his choices and decide whether he’s willing to compromise with his captive for the chance at something more. If he can get Toby to bend instead of break, he can have everything he wanted. But how far can he push before it’s too far…

About the Author

R. Phoenix (code name: Raissa) has an unhealthy fascination with contrasts: light and dark, humor and pain, heroes and villains, order and chaos. She believes love can corrupt, power can redeem and that the best of intentions can cast shadows while the worst can create light. She agrees with those who say that the truth is best told through fiction — even though fiction has to make sense while reality can be utterly baffling.
Her dark paranormal books explore a world where humanity has become prey, subjugated by “supes” — vampires, werewolves, and witches — who have seized control. They range from romance to dark erotica to horror and everything in between, exploring different aspects of the Fate of the Fallen universe. She’s even published something she calls “playful dark erotica.”
Her tendency to explore dark topics isn’t limited to a supernatural world. Her contemporary romance, Too Close, deals with the difficult topic of domestic violence. She is passionate about the need for greater awareness and understanding of an issue that’s often misunderstood.
She loves chatting with readers, though she often awkwardly rambles. No matter how much she tries to keep her bad and often perverted sense of humor in check, it seems to escape at the most inconvenient moments. (Thanks, universe.)
