Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge by Lisa Jensen reinvents the classic "Beauty and the Beast" tale into something darker and more layered. In the Author's Notes, Jenning's mentions how she wanted to give readers the Beast as a hero and a new heroine, one who wanted to preserve the Beast and who could open her heart to him.

"It haunts me beyond all reason, an ache in my heart I can't explain or ignore. And it all began with the damn book. There it sits, the crumbling old thing, on the tea table next to the window. I run my fingers over its nubby, embosses cover, the gilding almost entirely worn away, a boy in leaves and a pair of tarty little mermaids.
