A classic fairy tale with a seductively dark new twist, the Beastly Tales saga begins with Depravity.
No one enters the estate…
Sixteen year old Benella is concerned with two things–avoiding the two village boys who torment her and scrounging for food to help feed her family. Unfortunately, the best wild fruit and vegetables are near the walls of the estate, a dark misty place inhabited by an unforgiving beast.
The beast punishes all who trespass…
When her tormentors lock her behind the massive gates, Benella knows her fate is sealed. Yet, the fate isn’t one she expects. Her encounter with the beast starts a bizarre cycle of bargaining for her freedom, a freedom the beast seems determined to see her lose.
Intended for mature readers due to sexual situations and moderate language. This book is part 1 of 3 with a cliffhanger.

I love Beauty and the Beast tales and that love made writing the Beastly Tales one of my favorite projects.
This tale isn’t for the faint of heart. Part 1 shows just how beastly the beast really is and why he was cursed, as well as the series of questionable events that occur to lead Benella to the place she’s meant to be.
The Beastly Tales are not stand alone books. They are meant to be read together, in order, and do end with cliffhangers until the final HEA. Enjoy!
