Luciana grew up on the Isle of Moon, hidden away because of her magical powers. But when her father arrives, he offers her a choice: remain on the island or return with him and marry the Beast of Benwick in order to save their legacy—and her father's life.

Lord Leofric, the Beast of Benwick, has not been touched since he was a child. Born with the power to harness lightning, he is a danger to everyone he touches. When he meets his betrothed, he expects a loveless, lonely marriage...until he discovers she's vastly more powerful than he realized. But is she strong enough to withstand his touch?

If they can survive, their love will alter the future of the kingdom. But will their extraordinary powers cost them everything?

Alright, lets just talk about it before we get started: The Cover. I know, it’s pretty damn cheesy, and to be honest, I wish it didn’t have this kind of cover. Personally, covers never really stop me from reading a book if I’ve heard that it’s super good, clearly, but I think it could stop a lot of other people from picking it up. I mean, unless they’re totally looking for a sexy time book, then they probably would go straight for this cover. However, there really wasn’t all that much sexy time in this one, and I was surprised considering that cover.

With that being said, I have to say this is one of the best New Adult (I would consider it NA because of the ages of the characters) books with fantasy that I’ve ever read. I really really liked the world that was built for the reading in this one, and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for what a usual YA fantasy book gives you, but also adding in some more intense sexy times.

Now, moving on to more bookish things about the book after that cover and sexy times rantish deal up there. The writing was super easy to read, and I swear once I fell into this book, it really only took me a few days to finish it. And considering the fact that I am studying full time and working a lot more lately, that’s a pretty good amount of time!

It’s the perfect NA/fantasy crossover, or just a fun read if you’re looking for a different kind of book to pick up!

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
