Tempting Fate by Kerrigan Byrne is a gothic romance that perfectly pairs a shy, anxious heroine with a brooding, scarred hero in a tender Beauty and the Beast tale. A quick, delightful read that offers both warmth and a touch of darkness.

Read this book if you’re in the mood for:

  • A quiet and shy heroine
  • A heroine who lives with anxiety and panic attacks
  • A virgin hero
  • A dark broody scarred hero
  • A beauty and the beast dynamic
  • A hero who has watched and worshipped the heroine from afar, feeling like he’s too big, ugly and violent for her

This was a lovely little read. We have two people who both crave quiet and peace for different reasons: she because of her anxiety, which was in no small part caused by the callous indifference of her parents. And he because of his bloody criminal past, which was thrust upon him by bis violently psychopathic father.

These quiet, restless souls come together in this beautifully told Beauty and the Beast style love story. Only, the beast doesn’t need taming, he just needs a place to heal, and the beauty just needs someone to make her feel safe.

Kerrigan Byrn’e gothic writing style was perfect for this story and I recommend giving it a try if you want something quick and lovely to read.
