It is the Year of Hattie in Sarah MacLean’s Brazen and the Beast!
Hattie wanted to begin her nine and twentieth year with her ruination, however Savior Whittington (aka Beast) had to be disposed of from her carriage first.
From his first kiss with Hattie, Beast was ruined and, after a little tuck-and-roll, he interrupted the plans of the too perfect a lady for him. Hattie’s ruination had to take a rain check, but it would be rectified with someone too perfect (of preference) for her.
In the meantime, Hattie was working towards inheriting her father’s shipping business, while Beast did what he had to do to keep her safe from his brother’s vengeance. Beast and Hattie may have betrayed or blackmailed each other, yet it was clear that they would fight to keep each other safe no matter what. Join us as we discuss a brazen boss lady and a bespectacled beast.
