An innocent beauty, a scarred hero...

Could she be the one to open up his heart?

Handsome but guarded former Hollywood star Deacon Santoro prefers the confines of his mansion since an accident left him scarred both inside and out. But he promised to protect sparky beauty Gabrielle Dupre, his new PA. Can Gabrielle convince Deacon that love will give them the fairy-tale ending they deserve?

My thoughts: This book was easy to get into. The characters, the story...I enjoyed it all.

Gabrielle is a selfless individual. She works two jobs to support her father, she takes care of him, until he creates a mess that she has to fix. She becomes the PA to the reclusive actor, Deacon Santoro. This is to keep Deacon from prosecuting her father for trespassing and staging a protest on the actors property, accusing him of being at fault for the car accident that took Gabrielle's aunt's life.

Yes, the situation that gets Gabby into the the home of Deacon is a little complicated. The main thing is that she finds that not everything is clear cut. There are pieces of the story that don't add up. As a librarian, and journalist, Gabby knows that she can get to the bottom of it and find the truth. But she didn't plan on Deacon being a good and kind man.

The book had many of the aspects of Beauty and the Beast. Deacon is scarred, both emotionally and physically. Gabby is a person to look past the outward appearance and see the heart of the person in front of her. I did miss Gaston, I didn't find a character that I could claim as him. The teacups didn't come to life and I missed the candlestick. I guess that there is only so much of the fairy tale that can make it into a contemporary romance. :)

This book has innuendo and fade to black romance scenes.
