Annotation The tale of "Beauty and the Beast" recast as an encounter between Alix, a beautiful young painter, and Lee Crompton, a reclusive and beastly writer of mystery novels who has summoned Alix to his New Hampshire home to have her paint his portrait.
Editors Note When Alexandra Miller takes off for a remote spot in New Hampshire to paint Leland Crompton's portrait, nothing has prepared her for what's in store. The house is almost a castle, with its massive chimney, mullioned windows, and iron-work gate with wrought-iron roses. The housekeeper is unnerving. And Lee himself is hideously disfigured by a rare genetic disease. But in their long hours of work together deep in the wintry woods, Alix discovers that beneath Lee's disturbing exterior lies a true prince. Gradually, she realizes that she loves him. And he absolutely refuses to believe her.
