A Beast living in the shadow of his past

Reclusive and severely scarred Prince Adam Delacroix has remained hidden inside a secluded, decrepit castle ever since he witnessed his family’s brutal massacre.

Caught in a fierce snowstorm, beautiful and strong-willed Isabelle Rose seeks shelter at a castle – unaware that its beauty and disfigured master is much more than he appears to be. When he imprisons her gravely ill and blind father, she bravely offers herself in his place.

Now, she lives in the slums of the opulent kingdom of Elastria, where the Winter Winds are brutal, and force everyone into their homes for the entire season.
