I am excited to be part of this great book tour, organized by Xpresso Book Tours, for Liza Penn's book, Bette and the Beast! It's the first in a series of books that twists old fairytales to make them modern. The next three books twist the fairytales of Rapunzel, The Little Mermaid, and Cinderella. Please scroll to the bottom for a fantastic giveaway!
Bette owns Fairhaven’s only bookstore…but only barely. She’s struggling with bills, but she refuses to sell to the hotel mogul Richard Dickson because he only wants to tear down the beloved store and replace it with a hotel. Can these two find a compromise and save the bookstore?
Richard’s eyebrow quirked up. His hands slid lower, lingering on the silk stocking covering her knees, then they slipped under her skirt, his fingers toying with the straps of her garter, sliding up and down, dipping under the top of her silk stockings, dancing higher and higher up toward the lace of her panties.
“You put these on for me to find,” he said.
It was not a question, but Bette still denied it. “I just prefer them to regular hose,” she said, tilting her head up. “They’re…”
Richard grinned wickedly. “Sexier,” he said. “And you know it.”
Bette didn’t deign to answer.
“And that’s why you wore them for me.” Richard said. His voice was getting lower.
“And what if I did?” Bette asked.
“Then,” Richard said, his hand sliding up Bette skirt, wrapping around her black-lace covered hips, “you deserve a reward.”
