A fresh twist on the classic story of Beauty and the Beast, Bellamy and the Brute proves true love really is blind.


When Bellamy McGuire is offered a summer job babysitting for the wealthy Baldwin family, she's reluctant to accept. After all, everyone in town knows about the mysterious happenings at the mansion on the hill—including the sudden disappearance of the Baldwin's eldest son, Tate. The former football star and golden boy of Wellhollow Springs became a hermit at the age of sixteen, and no one has seen or heard from him since. Rumors abound as to why, with whisperings about a strange illness—one that causes deformity and turned him into a real-life monster. Bellamy wants to dismiss these rumors as gossip, but when she's told that if she takes the job, she must promise to never, ever visit the third floor of the mansion, she begins to wonder if there really is some dark truth hidden there.


Tate's condition may not be the only secret being kept at Baldwin House. There are gaps in the family's financial history that don't add up, and surprising connections with unscrupulous characters. At night there are strange noises, unexplained cold drafts, and the electricity cuts out. And then there are the rose petals on the staircase. The rose petals that no one but Bellamy seems to be able to see. The rose petals that form a trail leading right up to the 3 rd floor, past the portrait of a handsome young man, and down a dark hallway where she promised she would never, ever go…


As Bellamy works to unravel the mysteries of Baldwin House and uncover the truth about Tate, she realizes that she is in way over her head… in more ways than one. Can her bravery and determination help to right the wrongs of the past and free the young man whose story has captured her heart?


Bellamy and the Brute is perfect for fans of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, and Beastly by Alex Flinn.

The intrigue and romance from BELLAMY AND THE BRUTE continue in this fast-paced novella that catches up with unlikely soul mates Bellamy and Tate as they embark on their new life together.

Ever since breaking the curse of Baldwin House, Bellamy McGuire and Tate Baldwin have found happiness in a normal life together. Attending college, choosing career paths, making new friends … life away from Wellhollow Springs has been new and exciting. But some things can never truly be left behind—a lesson Bellamy and Tate will learn when they join their classmates on a spring break trip.

There's been a rise in drownings at the popular Lake Blackshear resort, and Bellamy is wary of venturing near the water. But an accident near the lake will uncover a deadly secret—one that could end Bellamy's life if she and Tate cannot get to the bottom of it.
