Beauty and the Beast Retellings
Blackmailed by the Beast by Georgia Le Carre
When I was a child my favorite fairytale was Beauty And The Beast. I dreamed of sacrificing myself for my father, and bravely going to an enchanted castle to live with the Beast. There I gently kissed the beast and transformed him into a handsome Prince. Now, I’m an adult, and it appears I have somehow wandered into the enchanted mansion of a beast. He is so cold and harsh, but for some reason I don’t want to change him. I don’t want him to change at all.
