A fallen lady...A beastly lord...And a night out in the woods.

Unmarried and with child, Lady Eugenie enters into a marriage of convenience to save herself and her unborn child from society's censure. However, her new husband turns out to be the rumored Beast of Ravengrove, a hideously scarred man who roams his ancestral home at night, sending fear into the hearts of those unfortunate enough to encounter him.

Battle-scarred and weary of life, Adrian Brooks, Earl of Remsemere, all but flees society and hides out at his country estate. Fearful of an old curse, which has already sent those he loved to an early grave, he spends his days in seclusion. However, one day, an old friend arrives at Ravengrove and begs him for a favor, a favor Adrian is honor-bound to grant.

Will the Beast of Ravengrove send his new bride fleeing into the woods? Or will Lady Eugenie discover that there is a man underneath his beastly demeanor? Is Adrian forever doomed to merely exist, or will he learn to truly live and love again?


After a family tragedy Adrian Brooks,  Earl of Remsemere tempted death many times in the war in France.  While convinced that death follows him, it doesn't seen to want to take him.  The last example sends him back home and the desolate life there.
Lady Eugenie discovers herself in a very difficult situation through no fault of her own.  She is pregnant and unmarried.  There is really only one hope that will protect her and her baby.  
Our unfortunate heroine is a lot more accepting and forgiving than the men around her have any right to expect.  
Our tormented hero suffers dreadfully from anxiety.  That is not something that men could admit to in those days.  
Two very lonely people must try to make a life worth living.  
A very emotional story that links to a previous book in the series.  I don't think it really matters which one you read first because they are set at the same time and don't give too many spoilers to each other until the very end of this one.  
The characters are fabulous and fun. I think our heroine's friend just might have her own story coming soon.


USA Today bestselling and award-winning author, Bree Wolf has always been a language enthusiast (though not a grammarian!) and is rarely found without a book in her hand or her fingers glued to a keyboard. Trying to find her way, she has taught English as a second language, traveled abroad and worked at a translation agency as well as a law firm in Ireland. She also spent loooong years obtaining a BA in English and Education and an MA in Specialized Translation while wishing she could simply be a writer. Although there is nothing simple about being a writer, her dreams have finally come true.

"A big thanks to my fairy godmother!"

Currently, Bree has found her new home in the historical romance genre, writing Regency novels and novellas. Enjoying the mix of fact and fiction, she occasionally feels like a puppet master (or mistress? Although that sounds weird!), forcing her characters into ever-new situations that will put their strength, their beliefs, their love to the test, hoping that in the end they will triumph and get the happily-ever-after we are all looking for.
