Mercedes is at loose ends and finds herself driving down a dark highway not knowing what the next step is in her life. She sees a man walking along the road and stops to see if he needs a lift. This isn't something she usually does, but something about the handsome man draws her to him. This is just the beginning of this wild ride, Mercedes and Nox go on together.

Finding out there is more than just a sexual connection between the Mercedes and himself surprises Nox but gives him more reason to complete his goal. He needs to find a way to cure himself of the beast he turns into on the full moon so that he can take his relationship with Mercedes to the next level. If he can't, will he ever have a chance with Mercedes?

Beauty's Beast is an interesting opening for a decent series if Ann Cory chooses to make one. The mad scientist trying to make the perfect killing machine, only to find to created a beast with a will of his own, that changes on the full moon, isn't a new idea, but the author has a flair for the written word and definitely has an angle for erotic romance.

It takes a strong woman to love a beast.

After a planned week away goes bust, Mercedes Black takes to the road. Years of unexplained memory lapses have ruined her relationships with men and left her future uncertain. That is until a good-looking stranger appears along the desolate highway, and she offers him a ride. The moment he enters her car, an internal switch is turned on and her body craves his touch. Figuring she has nothing left to lose, besides her memory, she gives in to her impulses.

Nox Messina has never been the same after volunteering for what he thought was advanced medical research. For years he has been on the run. Tired of being hunted, he decides to take down the doctor who ruined his life, and to insure that no one will stand in his way again. His plan for vengeance gets sidelined when an exquisite beauty offers him much more than a ride, and he can't refuse.

As their feelings deepen for one another, they discover the man Nox plans to kill plays a crucial role in their future. Not only does he want the beauty for himself, but he wants beauty's beast out of the way for good.
