Erin cleans Mr. Morris’s house twice a week, soaking up every moment with the reclusive ex-soldier she secretly loves. Blake Morris knows he’s scarred both inside and out and is no good for the beautiful young woman who cleans his house to pay for college. But when Erin walks in on Blake touching himself and moaning her name, all bets are off.

Beauty Touched the Beast is a short erotic story of lovers finding refuge with each other. Not for those under 18 years of age or those uncomfortable with the subject matter.

In April 2015 I received a free copy of the anthology Red Hot Beginnings. Red Hot Beginnings is an anthology with fourteen (14) different full length series openers. I decided to start reading Red Hot Beginnings because it was an anthology and I am hoping to find a few good books and a few new authors.

Since Red Hot Beginnings contains fourteen (14) full length novels, I’ve decided to review each entry separately.

Note: Red Hot Beginnings is no longer for sale. Each book will have to be acquired separately – some are still free.

Fourteen NYT, USA Today, and top-selling authors have banded together to bring you 14 beautifully romantic, heart-pounding stories of love, passion, and thrilling suspense. These 14 amazing books are the beginnings to incredible series. Some of these alpha males are sweet, some are sexy, and some are furry or bitey. All will fight for their women and protect them in these 14 brilliant stories by authors you’ll love!

So. This happened.

This is book #3 in the Red Hot Beginnings anthology and like Life Blood it is a serial. Beauty Touched the Beast is…not much. There’s some mutual pining by both MCs and then a couple of sex scenes. There’s also the typical “she’s too good for me” angst. Meh.

I have no intentions of reading more work in the Beauty series.
