Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday - The Beast's Redemption

Welcome to my #sffsat snippet! To read other #sffsat snippets head over over here.

The Beast's Redemption is a paranormal romance novella about a shape shifter and witch who must learn to trust in each other to break a hundred year old curse.


***
Alexander second-guessed his impulsive proposition to her in the elevator. The pictures hadn’t done her beauty justice or prepared him for the fact she could have been Serena’s identical twin. As soon as she’d walked into the room, the old rage had gripped him with a longing to strangle the little witch.

His brain had overridden his instincts reminding him the woman wasn’t Serena. But that didn’t mean he could relax his guard. Belle looked too much like Serena for coincidence. She was either a direct descendant or the sorceress reincarnated. Serena was vain enough to demand the same body when she came back.

Jory, the driver from the car service, opened his door, and Alexander shook off the unpleasant memories of years past. The talisman around his neck warmed to an uncomfortable level, showing how deeply Belle affected him.
