Here's a snippet:

Claws.  Long, filthy, and dangerously sharp. 

They’re the first thing Bella sees after what's been the worst day of her life.  Careful not to alert her captor to her conscious state, she glances past the matted fur-covered arms and expanse of chest to the face. If something surrounded by tangled black rattails can be called a face. 

Perhaps if Bella were the quintessential Beauty—gorgeous, kindhearted, and self-sacrificing—she might have a fighting chance in transforming this monster into a man.   But she’s never been the toad-kissing kind.  Obsessed with landing a wealthy nobleman and escaping her humdrum life, she will stop at nothing to achieve her goals.  Which is precisely what landed her here, at the mercy of the Beast.

Praise for Becoming Beauty:

“It's hard to believe this is Boucher's first novel. The writing is sophisticated and striking, and the story captivating. It immediately pulls the reader into the clutches of its charm. Becoming Beauty is a much welcome addition to the genre.” 
Melissa Lemon, author of Snow Whyte & the Queen of Mayhem 
and Cinder & Ella


“Becoming Beauty is a fresh take on a favorite tale - full of mystery, intrigue, and romance. Bella is a heroine you'll root for despite her failings and flaws. Prepare to be drawn into a fantasy when you open this book!”
Misty Dawn Pulsipher, author of Pride's Prejudice

“I don’t actually like romance novels. It’s true. Don’t tell the girls in my writing group—they might riot.The thing is, the voice of Bella in Becoming Beauty is so sassy and so real that once I got started, I kept reading. Then the story got good (after about twelve words) and I was sucked into this slightly twisted, but awesome re-telling of Beauty and the Beast.When you’re reading Sarah’s books, you’re in good hands. She spins a wild and charming tale that will keep you flipping pages into the wee hours of the morning.”
Jo Ann Schneider, Babes in Spyland and New Sight
