This is another book I found through Bookbub. I hadn’t read any of Katy Regnery books but she has a very extensive backlist. And all from 2012. (https://www.katyregnery.com/books)
If you are looking for a roance with a capital R this one is a candidate to put on your reading list. I liked it so much I bought, and am reading, Never Let You Go (Hansel and Gretel). Wow another really great story.
These books are complete stand alones so can be read in any order. The Vixen and The Vet (Beauty and the Beast) is from her modern fairytale collection. Asher Lee wishes he could, like the fairytale hero, be transformed by a kiss.
The heroine is in a bad place career wise. Returning to the small town Savannah Carmichael was raised in, she is offered a chance to get back in the game. An investigative reporter she agrees to write a human-interest story for an upcoming Fourth of July article. It’s a long way from the position she had in New York, but by writing Asher’s story it’s a way back to her career.
Almost from the first moment Savannah shows up on Asher’s doorstep life changes for both of them. Savannah see’s the man, not the disfigured war hero. Asher opens his heart and after eight long lonely years, starts to again claim a life.
This book is a RITA Finalist / Winner of the Kindle Book Award
The reviews in Amazon are 5 star and well written. Fifty percent of the profits from the ebook sales of The Vixen and the Vet was donated to Operation Mend. An organization that is making a difference in the lives of wounded veterans.

Bookbub is great, isn’t it? I follow my favorite authors but also manage to pick up new ones. And this story sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the recommend.
I’m half way through another of hers and it’s so different but just as good. Never Let you Go. If you do get one of these two and probably others read the authors notes at the end.
Sounds an intriguing read. I do love a modern slant on fairy tales, probably why I like the Shrek movies so much! I will give this one a try. Have never used Bookbub and am considering putting my books on there. Anything to reach a wider audience.
You’ll love this collection. I’m almost finished with the next one of hers. I’d love to get on Bookbub as an author but it’s not easy.
Sounds like a great premise and neat idea in the re-creation of fairy tales. Glad you enjoyed it. Jillian
I just bought the 3rd book in the collection. The only bad thing is I don’t get much done because I can’t my nose out of the book.
LOL! I can relate to that. 🙂
