A friend of mine has published a novel today. It's a period romance set in 18th century Venice. The heroine is Cassanova's sister. It's a retelling of the fairy tale 'Beauty and the Beast'.
It isn't usually my sort of thing but her writing style is light and funny and she's balanced the romance with a very good plot.
The author's name is Victoria Leybourne and the book is called 'The Rose and the Mask: A Beauty and the Beast Retelling'.
The book is available from most retailers and can be purchased in paperback or as an ebook.
