The Vixen and the Vet: A Modern Fairytale by Katy Regnery

In this modern-retelling of "Beauty and the Beast," 
Savannah Carmichael, betrayed by an unreliable source, 
returns to her hometown of Danvers, Virginia with her once-promising journalism career in ruins. Given the opportunity to get back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn’t been seen since. 

After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher’s hand and disfigured half of his face, he's lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy…that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress with a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feeling things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn’t felt in years. 

Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other’s hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they’ll have to decide if the love they found in one another’s arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after.

The Vixen and the Vet is part of the a modern fairytale collection, which will include five standalone novels:

"The Vixen and the Vet" (Beauty & the Beast) - available now
"Never Let You Go" (Hansel & Gretel) - available June 2015
"Ginger's Heart" (Little Red Riding Hood) - available 2016
"Don't Speak" (The Little Mermaid) - available TBD
"Follies on the Landscape" (Rumplestiltskin) - available TBD

Sweet, heart wrenching Beauty and the Beast type story. Full of good old fashion Southern charm. Sweet tea, baked goods, chivalry and all.

A self proclaimed hermit, Asher is a wounded vet who's missed out on years of human interaction.

Savannah's an eager and tenacious young woman back home licking her wounds after losing her job in NYC.

Together they weave a tale of love, hurt, broken hearts, passion and forgiveness. 

I'm not going to say insta-love.. but there's definitely an insta-connection, and it works.

This story brought me to tears! It was sweet and endearing, funny, sexy and emotional! I loved it.
