I have an unhealthy obsession with Disney anything, when I heard about Marie Hall's Kingdom series I was so excited and instantly got book one because it is a freebie, long story short I loved it and needed to read more of the series. I didn't think it was possible, but Gerard's Beauty made me fall in love with the series even more.
Gerard Caron is a womanizer, and doesn't want to find love. He is forced out of Kingdom (picture angry villagers with pitchforks and torches) and told he has to find true love. His fairy godmother extraordinaire, Danika, helps him out by dropping him outside a library and tells him to find Betty Hart.
Recently recovering from a bad break up, Betty isn't looking for another relationship with a Casanova, so when she spots Gerard she wants nothing to do with him. They start off rocky, but quickly grow accustomed to each other and their relationship blossoms. I loved the twists that really makes this book (and series) unique. It's nothing like the Disney fairy tales we all know, but at the same time it includes the villains we all want to know more about. Gerard's Beauty is a novella, but one I think any lover of fairy tales will enjoy. If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend it!
