New Book: Beauty and the Werewolf (Five Hundred Kingdoms) by Mercedes Lackey

Beauty and the Werewolf (Five Hundred Kingdoms) by Mercedes Lackey is released today (ebook link). This is the sixth book in her second fairy tale inspired series, Five Hundred Kingdoms, not the Elemental Masters. Five Hundred Kingdoms, published by Luna, has more of a romance influence than the Elemental Masters which don't always promise a romance.

Book description from the publisher:

The eldest daughter is often doomed in fairy tales. But Bella— Isabella Beauchamps, daughter of a wealthy merchant—vows to escape the usual pitfalls.

Anxious to avoid the Traditional path, Bella dons a red cloak and ventures into the forbidden forest to consult with "Granny," the local wisewoman.

But on the way home she's attacked by a wolf—who turns out to be a cursed nobleman! Secluded in his castle, Bella is torn between her family and this strange man who creates marvelous inventions and makes her laugh—when he isn't howling at the moon.

Breaking spells is never easy. But a determined beauty, a wizard (after all, he's only an occasional werewolf) and a little godmotherly interference might just be able to bring about a happy ending.…

There is also an excerpt on the Amazon page for previewing.
