Disfigured Love (stand-alone). Masked Billionaire recluse, Guy Hawk purchases a young Beauty to satisfy his kinky desires! “She would be my pet. A human pet. To do with as I pleased.” Disfigured Love is an erotic, modern day take on Beauty and the Beast, very much told in the fairytale spirit. Billionaire Guy Hawk has a disfigured hand and face, but most of all a broken soul and spirit. He still feels anger and guilt towards the event that caused his disfigurement, details to unfold with story. In a moment of weakness and sexual frustration he signs up with modern day sex slave site, but none of their slaves interest him until he spots young beauty Lena Seagull. The story then offers a flashback into Lena’s abusive upbringing in remote Russia before her father sold her. After the auction Lena is smuggled from Russia into England and to her new owner. She arrives at a rundown remote haunted castle with a spars, but friendly staff. Their first meeting with Guy brings conflicted emotions for both. Lena is blindfolded and strapped to a bed as Guy has his way with her, very roughly I might add. Lena is hurt, but he also brought her pleasure. Guy was sated, but had a hard time staying detached and afterwards feels remorse. But with time, much thanks to Lena’s warm, positive and outgoing spirit, she wraps the staff and Guy around her finger... Their nights are filed with ecstasy and pleasure. Guy promises her freedom after one year in captivity, but before their year is over their lives are rocked by secrets, lies, deceit, tragedy and…. unspoken love. In all their adversity will they find the way to each other’s hearts or forever be shackled to their pasts? “I realized then that I would never win this game. I would never reign over her.” Eight words to describe Guy Hawk: Broken, conflicted, flawed, self-depraving, caring, commanding, reclusive and enigmatic. “The hawk’s prey is the seagull.” Seven words to describe Lena Seagull: Optimistic, relentless, spirited, naïve, caring, loyal and strong. Disfigured Love is a fast-paced and at times emotional love story. It has the feel-good fairytale vibe to it and all the ingredients, the presence of good and evil; tragedy and hope; love and hate; yearning and rejection. It’s an erotic awaking for Lena and the nudge for Guy’s soul and Lena’s spirit to seek their happily-ever-after! I’d welcome an extended epilogue, which Georgia Le Carre has already promised. Spell-binding story telling! Off-the-charts sex scenes. Modern day fairytale with a twist plot!

BONUS EPILOGUE This epilogue will be included in books sold after December 12th, 2014. But Georgia Le Carre wanted this epilogue to be available to all readers. Wait to click on spoiler until AFTER you have read Disfigured Love. Enjoy! (view spoiler)[ I opened the tall door and, quickly slipping in with Ceba, closed it against the cold, wet wind. I hung up my thick coat and taking a brown towel hanging on a hook briskly rubbed Ceba’s underside and legs. We had been to the graveyard and he had run along the river. Getting down on my haunches next to him, I said in Russian, ‘Paw.’ He lifted a paw and I rubbed the muddy pad clean. ‘OK, all done,’ I said, and putting down his last leg looked into his brown eyes. He pushed his face closer to mine and I felt his hot breath on my cheek. Without warning he suddenly licked my ear. Laughing, I hugged his big furry neck. ‘God, I love you,’ I whispered. That was when he made that sound that he only made when he was alone with me. Like a human baby. I tightened my hold around his neck before I stood up. ‘Let’s go find Auntie Sofia,’ I said, and we walked into the great hall together. I paused in front of the large vase of lilies. They had only fully opened yesterday and their scent was overpowering. I drew their heady perfume in and thought of that sad woman who had appeared out of the mist to urge me to hold on. Lilies had been Meredith’s favorite flowers. They were the last invisible connection between Guy and his dead wife. A nostalgia. One night when we were lying in bed Guy turned to me, and I saw the remnants of a distant pain flickering in his eyes. It made my heart ache for him. Then he told me that he had grown up an orphan trapped in a brutally uncaring and corrupt system where children were commodities. He had run away from its crushing, dehumanizing fist, determined to make it in the big, wide world. At sixteen he secured the menial job of mailroom boy, but he was so desperate for success that he worked harder and longer than anyone else he knew. He hardly slept and used his meager wages to put himself through night school. It paid off and he began to rise up in the ranks. One afternoon he looked up from his lunch in the café across the road and caught Meredith’s eye. She was the boss’s daughter. He was twenty-three and she was thirty-five, but she fell madly in love with him. On his part he was overwhelmed by the sudden grand simplicity of real wealth that she represented. Seen from her privileged eyes his past, with its grinding poverty and humiliation, became as charming an eccentricity as the story of a lord who lost his eye to a tiger in India. And he thought: This is what it means to be truly rich. To be rescued forever from the pettiness of embarrassment. The rich could do anything with impunity. They got married and she provided the financing for his first business venture. He never looked back for more. The business grew from strength to strength. ‘She was my best friend,’ he told me, his voice soft and hurt. ‘I will never forget what she did for me, or stop being grateful to her. There was only one promise she asked of me.’ He blinked. A shadow of a memory no sooner there than gone. ‘If ever I wanted someone else I shouldn’t go behind her back. I should let her go first. And I kept my promise until you came. Then it was impossible.’ I touched his arm. ‘I don’t think she held that against you. She wanted you to be happy.’ ‘I know. She was a kind woman.’ I walked away from the lilies toward the Christmas tree—twenty foot tall and filled with twinkling lights and silver decorations. It was magical in its beauty. For some odd reason a vivid memory of Misty laughing as she tied a candy cane to a branch flashed into my mind. How strange I hardly ever thought of her anymore. But the memory brought a dull pain. I had trusted her. Never saw the venom for what it was. Naively I had counted her as a friend. I pushed the pain of her betrayal into some dark recess. Some part of me belonged to her. Just as a part of me belonged to Nikolai, my father, and my mother. I guess we always belong to the people who have hurt us badly, or been badly hurt by us. As if he felt my sudden sadness, Ceba put his cold nose into my palm. ‘I’m not really sad. That was another lifetime ago,’ I told him softly. We walked away from the tree, and I ran lightly up the stairs, Ceba keeping pace. I knocked on Sofia’s door and she called for me to enter. She was sitting at the window and there was an open book next to her. She smiled at me. She was much changed—so much better than she had looked when I saw her again that night more than a year ago—but that well of sadness inside her had never dried. Always I saw it glinting in her eyes. It was months before she spoke about the terrible, terrible things she had suffered. Even now it made my hair stand on end to think of the inhuman things they did to her. I smiled at her. ‘Are you all right?’ ‘Yes. You’ve been out walking?’ ‘It was cold but good.’ She smiled. I went deeper into the room and knelt in front of her. ‘Will you come to the party with us tonight?’ She shook her head. ‘Why not? It’ll be fun. It’s Christmas Eve,’ I said enthusiastically. She lowered her head. ‘Next year. Next year, I will be ready.’ I hid my disappointment. ‘All right. Promise you will come next year?’ ‘I promise.’ I leaned forward and kissed her cheek. It smelled faintly of patchouli soap. Gently, I stroked her hair. She was the last bit of family I had. ‘I love you, you know,’ she whispered. ‘Me too, Sofia. Me too,’ I whispered back. Unshed tears made her eyes glimmer in the leaden light of noon. ‘What are you going to wear tonight?’ ‘I don’t know yet. Maybe something black.’ ‘No, it’s the festive season. Why don’t you wear your new red dress?’ ‘OK,’ I smiled. ‘Good. You look very beautiful in it.’ ‘I’ll come and see you before we leave.’ ‘Yes, do that,’ she said and kissed my cheek softly. I left her room and went to mine. It didn’t take me long to bathe and change into the red dress. I stood in front of the mirror and looked at myself. Sofia was right. It was a lovely dress. I stared into my own eyes. They seemed sad. When I first arrived back here I used to wake up in a terrible panic. For those few seconds of terror I wasn’t sure if I had dreamed it all. That in fact there was no Guy, or Sofia, or Ceba. Then my mind registered the silky tangle of Guy’s and my limbs, or his body pressed against mine, warm and solid. And I would reach out a trembling hand and begin to search for his claw. Strangely, it had become agonizingly precious to me, far more than his beautifully repaired face. That claw alone holds the memory of his pain and mine. In the mirror my hands lifted up to brush my hair and I saw the tiny white scar on the inside of my upper arm where the chip had been. Sofia carried the same scar. The sight affected me oddly. Again I lingered on the verge of tears. I brushed my hair slowly, smoothed the red dress over my hips, and slipped into a pair of high heels. Guy and I had been invited to join the Barringtons for dinner. Blake was old money, from an old banking family, and Lana was just a sweetheart. I didn’t know what Guy had told them, but the first time she met me, she walked up to me and enveloped me in her arms. When she pulled away from me she firmly declared, ‘We’ll be the best of friends, you’ll see.’ And she was right. I left the mirror and going to the bed sat on the edge of it and did what I had avoided doing all day. I thought of my father sitting alone in his cold, dusty house eating sunflower seeds, and I wondered why he had done it. What had possessed him to destroy us all so wantonly? Suddenly, Ceba got up and ran down the corridor. At the end of it I heard him jump on Guy and the mad greeting that followed. I stood up slowly and waited. When Guy appeared at the door the heavy sadness that had followed me all day vanished, and I experienced a rush of pure joy that he was mine. I swallowed the lump in my throat. His face changed. He came forward with a frown. ‘What’s the matter?’ ‘Nothing. I’m just so happy.’ He took me in his arms and we kissed. The kiss was tender and slow, and tears filled my eyes. He took my chin in his hand. ‘What is it, my darling?’ Instantly, I reached for his claw and held it within my hands. ‘Nothing. I’m just so happy I’ve got you.’ He gazed at me intently. ‘You might as well tell me now. You’ll have to eventually.’ I looked deep into his eyes. Into the warm colors—gold, green, whiskey, all mingling together. Did he know? No, of course he didn’t. He just knew that something was different. ‘I’m pregnant.’ For some seconds he did nothing. Simply stared at me with a stunned look in those beautiful eyes. And then his powerful arms came around me and suddenly I was lifted up into the air. With a cry of pure delight he began to twirl me round and round until I was laughing and quite dizzy. ‘Oh, baby, oh, baby,’ he said. He seemed so young. Happier than I had ever seen him. My mind became a camera that snapped pictures of him. Ones that I would treasure forever. He put me down suddenly, his face watchful. ‘Are you happy about it?’ he asked. His voice was guarded and almost fearful. My mouth softened. ‘Yes, very.’ ‘You don’t seem very happy.’ ‘I read that the first thing an abused child will do is to change the balance of power. They will seek to become the abuser. What if I become like my father?’ I whispered. I could feel myself begin to tremble. His face lit up with a huge smile. ‘Oh, my darling, darling Lena. That may be true of some, but never of you. Never. You are nothing like your father. There is not a cruel bone in your body. Look at the way you treat Ceba.’ ‘Do you really believe that?’ I asked, but as if by magic the dark clouds were already dissipating. ‘You will be a wonderful mother. There is nothing I am more sure of,’ he said firmly, and pulled me tight against his body. I tilted my head up at him and smiled happily. ‘Is that an erection you have there, Mr. Hawke?’ He grinned half sheepishly, half wolfish. ‘You are wearing red.’ ‘Got a thing for red, huh?’ ‘And green, and blue, and yellow… Come to think of it, any color would do the trick if you were wrapped up inside it,’ he drawled, his thumb stroking over the pulse in my wrist. ‘I like that,’ I said huskily. ‘What, this?’ he asked innocently, and lifting my wrist licked it. Hunger flared in his smoky eyes. ‘Mmm.’ My eyes fluttered closed. ‘Whatever you want. All you have to do is ask.’ I opened my eyes. ‘If it is a boy, can we call him Niko?’ ‘Nothing would make me happier.’ And the tears that had threatened to spill, they fell over then. But these were not the tears from this afternoon. These were tears of ecstasy. He held me close until the tears were spent. ‘I love you so much it hurts.’ ‘Forever?’ He put his hand on my belly. ‘Forever. Whatever it is, we will face it together. That much I promise you, Lena Hawke.’ (hide spoiler)]

    While I love a great, dark story, 'Disfigured Love' ended up being a disappointment for me. It definitely had plenty of "dark" content, but it failed to trigger much of an emotional response. I never felt a strong connection to the main characters and the heroine's reactions seemed forced. Lena Seagull grows up in an extremely abusive household in Russia.

It definitely had plenty of "dark" content, but it failed to trigger much of an emotional response. I never felt a strong connection to the main characters and the heroine's reactions seemed forced. Lena Seagull grows up in an extremely abusive household in Russia. Her father is a real bastard and her mother is the embodiment of Battered Wife Syndrome. For years he abuses everyone in the household, until he decides to begin selling off his children one by one. Meanwhile, the mother is paralyzed with fear and does absolutely nothing to prevent this. When Lena's father sells her to the human traffickers, she is sold in an online auction. Guy Hawke is the wealthy man that purchases Lena. Although he struggles internally with the idea of buying a girl, his conscience is not powerful enough to make him do the right thing. He knows that what he's doing is horrible, but he doesn't care. He wants Lena and he will force her to submit to him. Guy wastes no time in abusing his new toy. He viciously and repeatedly rapes her. Lena, surprisingly, seems to take it all in stride. Honestly, it was so unbelievable that it was laughable. All the while, he wears a mask, or blindfolds her, when they are together so that she cannot see his disfigured face. Of course, Guy has a tragic past that has left him emotionally scarred and is supposed to somehow excuse his behavior. Again, it was just too convenient and felt contrived. I didn't buy it. Following the classic 'Beauty and the Beast' storyline, the two end up falling in love. No big shocker there! When Lena discovers his big secret, this results in a big misunderstanding. Guy "sets her free", but really he just tosses her out like a piece of trash. In the end, they find their way back to each other. The misunderstanding is cleared up. They go on to live out the HEA. Cue the eye roll. Overall, I give it 2 1/2 stars. It wasn't the worst I've read, but it left a LOT to be desired. Mostly, it was just underwhelming. As a huge fan of darker reads, I actually liked the fact that the author wasn't afraid to write about controversial topics, like abuse, in graphic detail. However, the appeal in a dark read is in the emotional response that it elicits. This book failed to do that.

    “Disfigured Love” by Georgia Le Carre is a modern retelling after the Disney classic “Beauty and the Beast”. The story has a fairytale vibe, even if it’s an erotic story and tells the story of Guy (The Beast) and Lena (The Beauty). Guy is a Billionaire who was disfigured in a tragic car accident. He has half of the face disfigured, wearing a mask and one of his hands. He is lonely, lost and unhappy, but he still craves a woman’s touch, a woman’s curves. Guy is not the type that has to pay for a “Disfigured Love” by Georgia Le Carre is a modern retelling after the Disney classic “Beauty and the Beast”. The story has a fairytale vibe, even if it’s an erotic story and tells the story of Guy (The Beast) and Lena (The Beauty). Guy is a Billionaire who was disfigured in a tragic car accident. He has half of the face disfigured, wearing a mask and one of his hands. He is lonely, lost and unhappy, but he still craves a woman’s touch, a woman’s curves. Guy is not the type that has to pay for a woman. He never did, but one night, frustrated with everything his life has became he signs up with a sex slave site. At first none of the women there interest him, until he sees her – a blonde angel with blue eyes, Lena Seagull. He is fascinated by her, he fells a strange connection with the Russian beauty and he wants her no matter what, even if he doesn’t want her for a romantic relationship. He only wants her for his pleasure. “She would be my pet. A human pet. To do with as I pleased.” Lena had a hard life. With an abusive father who cared all his life only for money and with a mother who was too scared to do anything to save her children, Lena couldn’t do anything to change her destiny. She is 18 years old when she is sold by her father to become a sex sclave. She is bought from Russia to England to her new Master, a man she doesn’t know anything about. Guy doesn't want to feel anything for Lena. He doesn’t want to lose control. But the heart wants what it wants and he falls hard for her. He thinks that a Beauty like Lena will never love a Beast like him, but he’s so wrong, because for Lena, Guy is the perfect man. She falls for her "master" fast and hard, but what happens when secrets and lies are discovered? Can they forgive and move on together, trying to be happy or they will remain scarred and alone? This was my third modern fairy tale and also my third modern fairytale after the Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”. It wasn’t my fav, but I think it had a lot of potential. The storyline is predictable of course, since is a retelling, so you know how everything will progress between the main characters. I liked both main characters. I really felt for both of them. Both are scarred, one physically and the other emotionally. I liked the fact Lena never loses hope. She never stops dreaming and hoping. Evan with a tragic past, she is full of joy and happiness. Evan when she knows she is a sex slave she is strong and optimistic. She is certainly an admirable young woman. Guy is an enigmatic man, who doesn’t know how to move on or how to live anymore. I liked that despite all he never forgot how to love. I would have liked to see how he struggles with his feelings for Lena more. The connection and the chemistry between them are strong and you can really feel it and the erotic moments between them are hot, intense even if at times are rough. What I liked the most was the writing. This author definitely knows how to write and there’s no doubt she’s a great storyteller. What didn’t work out for me was the storyline. There’s too much going on, especially in the end. For me the book was too short for the amount of events. Reading the last 30% I felt like I was reading a different story. I understand this is a modern fairytale, but I would have preferred the story to be more...simplistic. While I liked both Lena and Guy, I didn’t felt connected with them too much. And this again because the story was too fast-paced. They didn’t make me feel too much. I felt for them, yes, but that was all. Even if “Disfigured Love” wasn’t my fav book by this author, I can say for sure that it was an entertaining read. If you like modern fairy tales, this definitely will be an enjoyable read!

I think it tops all Georgia Le Carre stories! Guy and Lena are two heroes carrying a lot of scars...both physically and emotionally! This is an our days Beauty and the Beast written amazingly by Georgia Le Carre. Lena Seagull is an 18 years old Russian girl with grey eyes, blonde hair, pale skin, tall and with an angel face. Lena lived all her life in a small log cabin at the edge of a forest in Russia with her parents and her 8 siblings, 7 sisters and her twin brother Nikolaj. They lived in big poverty, with no electricity, no TV, no phones, water had to be fetched from a well and the local village was miles away. They lived isolated from people and civilization, their father never even called a doctor or midwife to help their mother giving birth. Her whole life Lena grew in a state of terror. Her monster father had tortured their mother many times in the eyes of their children, inflicting terror in all his children. They did everything he wanted, never contradicted him. Growing up the things got worse in their house. (view spoiler)[ Her father began selling all his daughters one by one, abused his son when their mother died. (hide spoiler)] When was Lena's turn to be sold, she made a promise to her twin Nikolaj, she would come back to save him too. Guy Hawk is an English billionaire, with dark longish hair, golden eyes, he is very muscular and tall. He lives in a castle, moves with his helicopter and wears a mask covering his disfigured face. Only a few people have seen his face after that accident. He lives in an intolerable loneliness and sadness, his castle has become his hiding place. In one of his fragile moments he decided to find a procurement agency dealing with sex slavery. Since than every 2 weeks a red envelope comes to his desk, but no girl has tempted him til now. He never in his life had paid a woman for sex. Every time he closed that envelope he knew he was condemning these girls to a worse faith. Until the day when Lena Seagull's envelope arrived in his desk. He couldn't stop looking at her photos, in that precis moment something inside him changed, some rays of life entered his soul. This book broke my heart, it's unbelievable the pain this girl went through and also Guy's story was very touching. It was beautiful to see how two people who have suffered so much finally find love and happiness in each other. The sex was scorching hot...I was aroused every time Guy entered the room...this man is a possessive commanding sexy Beast :P "The answer to the question you asked yesterday is simple. You are mine. You will always be mine and only mine. And while I am alive you will never have another man in you body." *************** "I want to hold you wide open and eat you for hours. Then I want to make you come in my mouth and drink your juices, and afterwards I want to fuck you until you sob." I bit my lips. "Too dirty for you?" I shook my head. "That's what I thought too." But behind his Beast appearance hides a wonderful man. Her pain was his pain. Guy felt guilty for what he was doing, but he knew deep down he couldn't let her go...ever! "Have you ever done something shameful to survive?" I asked defiantly. "Yes." His voice was unemotional and cold. I was shocked. I had not really expected him to answer me. "What?" I whispered. "I bought you." I loved Lena's pure soul, her innocence was disarming and her strength was admiring. I loved the magnificent magical atmosphere of the Beauty and Beast this book hold, the perfect mix of fairy tale and dose of painful reality. Kudos to Georgia for touching always sensitive subjects in her books, in this case the prostitution business from the European Eastern countries. I'm from one of those country, where many girls coming from very poor families have been victims of this net, cheated by family or fiances have found themselves working in the streets or bordellos of Western Europe. The writing was so vivid I felt everything like I was there with them. This is a book that you will love, the perfect gift for the winter holidays. I totally recommend it!

Once again Georgia Le Carre has blown me away again with her fabulous writing, and her passionate sex scenes--with a little kink thrown in!! LOL I went into "Disfigured Love" knowing that it was a Beauty and the Beast themed story, and what I hadn't realized was there was quite a gothic feeling to this book. In fact, this is more on the gothic, dark side (if there is such a label!!) and I think that if more readers know that going into this story; they will enjoy it a lot more. It is far from a flowery romantic story...believe me...but the characters reach in and grab your heart regardless of the darkness within. We get a front row seat to Lena Seagull's traumatic and sad childhood. Her and her siblings have been dealt a crappy hand, and they live with very little in Russia with their mom and dad. Their a-hole father ends up selling each sibling by the time they are of age, and as each one goes the mom gets more and more depressed. When it comes time for Lena to be sold...her life will never be the same..( and she thought she was given a crappy hand before?? YIKES!) Eventually, Lena ends up being bought by her new master; Guy Hawke. At first, Guy is very soulless, empty, and makes Lena wear a mask anytime they are near one another. What she is unaware of is Guy has major destruction that was done to his face and hand. We eventually find out all of his secrets...and believe me...there are many; and some will have you covering your eyes!! There is so much to uncover, but through all the grimness, and betrayals, Lena is able to keep a bright out look on life. She has a goal of her own that she won't give up on...Will Guy ever be able to let Lena go? Or will she stay his "pet" forever? I have always had a weak spot for gothic themes in stories...add a fairytale like atmosphere and I'm hooked! I did love this one, and really; I have loved everything that I have read of this author so far! I am very eager to keep reading her back list, and also discovering her new books as well. She definitely has a new fan in me!!! I kick myself in the rear that I waited so long to give her a chance!!! I highly recommend this book to lovers of the darker side of love, it is a great read!

    I am a sucker for beauty and the beast stories. This one was good although I could have gone without a thing or two. Just saying. I read the first 75% with my heart in my throat and then next thing I know. The end. It was a little rushed at the end and I would've loved an epilogue ❤️ I am a sucker for beauty and the beast stories. This one was good although I could have gone without a thing or two. Just saying.

    5 BEAUTY AND THE BEAST stars this was a modern fairytale based on my fave classic fairytales ever - Beauty and the Beast yes, i am sappy, yes, I am lame and cheesy right now...and it was so fuckin' beautiful and romantic I even shared a tear!

Fuck me, i cried... Lena Seagull and Guy Hawke couldn't be more opposite people and yet they were the same...two souls shattered by the circumstances of life and were miraculously or destinly brought together... Lena was prepared for hardship, was brought up that way, was supposude to be broken and demolished by her own kin and yet her spirit was so strong and free (as a bird, I guess) and she kept her inner freedom...she was beyond the horror she went through and when her life was sold to the highest bidder for sexual pleasure, she didn't falter, she took it all in... she was brave and inner strong even if she wasn't aware of it... her bidder..hmmm...Mr. Guy Hawke, he was disfigured physically but he has let the horrid tissue to spread inside and the superficial ugliness took over his soul, his mind, his whole life. He was eaten by his personal tragedy and was going through everyday hell...until his eyes saw the connection...the hope...the innocence that died in him long time ago...and he cling to it like a drowning man onto a straw... "You belong to me. From the moment I saw your photo I knew." Lena was his salvation...his distraction, his empathy...his second chance...BUT he was still bond to the horrid past...and was affraid to let go...to LIVE again!!! so when his secret was out, Lena was sent away from him...BUT only to be protected and taken care of...from him...from the shadows... "I never abandoned you, Lena. Though it might have seemed to you I had. You were always mine. There was not one moment when you ceased to be mine. Not one stray moment when I was not there with you, watching you, protecting you, guiding you back to me." and that is not where the story ends... it really ends with the FIRST true love's KISS my God! I really enjoyed this story...yes, it is an old one as would Celine Dion lovely put it in words: "Tale as old as time True as it can be Barely even friends Then somebody bends Unexpectedly Just a little change Small, to say the least Both a little scared Neither one prepared Beauty and the Beast Tale as old as time Tune as old as song Bittersweet and strange Finding you can change Learning you were wrong... the transformation was less physical amd more emotional one which is the whole point... we all slip from time to time in this supeficial society that gloryfies the external beauty (even Lena is subdued to it BUT she used it only as a means to an end...she never changed inside) but not all of us are THAT strong or sure of ourselves, many think that they would be regarded as better or smart or whatever if they are "beautiful" by society's standards... and that always pisses me off cause we are NOT...the same, we don't look the same, we don't think or act the same...or at least we shouldn't!!! we are unique, different, colorful, sacred and unspoiled in out inner beauty! besides the beauty of another is in the eyes of a beholder! "You're too beautiful to be real." "Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing about you." An expression of sadness crossed his face. "You're the Beauty here. I am the Beast. I brought you to my castle. Kept you against your will." "You were never the Beast. You were always my hero." I love you. All of you. "Dont ever change, Lena." "Please don't ever fall out of love with me." "Nothing can change the way I feel about you....I love you, Lena Seagull" free as a bird...

I really needed this one to work for me since the previous book I had been reading had just been too slow and really wasn't working for me.So when I got this one I just hoped it would bring me out of the book funk.And it soooo did! I saw mixed ratings on GRs, looked like one of those that you love or just think they are meh. I've recently stopped judging a book because of the rating or reviews of others, well not judging but I do give some books a miss because of the stars which annoys me. I don't ever want to miss an incredible book because of book rating or other people's opinion. "Have you ever done something shameful to survive?" I asked defiantly. "Yes." His voice was unemotional and cold. I was shocked. I had not really expected him to answer me. "What?" I whispered. "I bought you." I'm so happy I read this one, it consisted of so much emotion and my heart was all over the place by the ending. This is the fist book I have read by Georgia Le Carre but it definitely won't be the last.The writing, the characters, the story had me at the edge of my seat.I was hooked from the first page and by the last I never wanted to let go. I wanted to curl up in this book and stay there..or maybe just in Guy's bed? That's cool too ;) "The answer to the question you asked yesterday is simple. You are mine. You will always be mine and only mine. And while I am alive you will never have another man in you body." I read through the night and really needed to put it down, and when I did I was still thinking about it. A chapter more can't hurt right? I need to know what will happen next!! The top thing for me to love a book is that it has to make me feel, that doesn't mean it has to be all good feelings. Any emotion (other that hate for the characters and story lol) the author can draw out of me is a good thing!And this was one of those books for me, there were moments that were intense and painful. My heart felt like it was being squeezed so tight and other moments where I was giddy with happiness.And Lena's brothers part just bloody broke me *sobs* I was crushed and so angry, hurt and so many other feelings that don't have names. “I thought I was holding on tight but she had slipped out like sand.” I would have loved more Guy POVs, we just see small glimpses through his point of view. Oh and I want to know where the other siblings got to, what happened to them? Can they get their story? Because that would be awesome.Now I'm off to check out and add GLC's other books to my to-read!! *I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads Woopppp!!* Blog: http://zakirrahsbookblog.blogspot.co.uk/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ZakirrahsBoo...

    I acknowledge that I am likely just being super sensitive since this is just fiction and it’s meant to be a “dark” romance but I just couldn’t get past the human trafficking part of the story. Guy Hawke, the main character (I won’t call him a hero) did not have good intentions when he bought Lena. “I would use her as if she was an object existing purely for my pleasure. I never wanted to know one fucking thing about her or her miserable little life, or her inevitably sad story.” I just can’t I acknowledge that I am likely just being super sensitive since this is just fiction and it’s meant to be a “dark” romance but I just couldn’t get past the human trafficking part of the story.

Giving someone an orgasm does not make up for taking their freedom away and though I know I am likely not taking the story for how it was meant to be taken, reading chapter after chapter of Lena’s horrible life up to the point where she first met Guy solidified that I was not reading a romance, dark or not. Unfortunately, this one just didn’t work for me.

The rough sex and degrading talk didn't bother me, but it felt too much like 'wham-bam-thank-you-madam' kinda sex. I don't felt the connection between the couple.

From a girl from a small town Russia and being sold by her father to be a sex slave, she become a successful, independent and strong woman. Is just too bad I don't feel the romance and love between these two. (view spoiler)[I don't understand why would the author make Guy said that he never love his late wife. Can't he love both his wife and Lena? I thought that is such a douchey statement. (hide spoiler)]

    This book proved to be a little different than what I'm used to. And not in a bad way at all. I like to think I'm all grown to spend time divulging in fairy tales but I guess this book changed my mind a little. I did indulge. And badly at that too. The writing in this book was fantastic.

And not in a bad way at all. I like to think I'm all grown to spend time divulging in fairy tales but I guess this book changed my mind a little. I did indulge. And badly at that too. The writing in this book was fantastic. Believe me this author can create such wonderful feelings with wonderful words. It does have a whole fairytale like feel to it as I mentioned before and I think it was the fantastic writing which made me really enjoy it. Because I don't think just anyone could pull this storyline off. That takes talent. So I fell in to this story straight away and enjoyed every little bit of it. Lena is a woman who comes from a really simple but difficult background. One in which her own father sells her. And destiny makes her land on Guy's doorstep. Mysterious Guy who likes to keep his face hidden in a mask, fear of any one seeing him, because as the title suggests, he is a little disfigured. And Lena is condemned to do as he pleases, to live out the rest of her life pleasing him, because that is why she was brought after all. But of course, beauty isn't only skin deep and glimpsing at what's underneath can change things. The scenes were all fantastically done. Certain parts drawing me in even more. I liked Lena's curious nature, her will to explore her surroundings. How she goes about finding the history of the castle she now lives in to pass her time. I think that was a great little addition to the story. Like I said, every scene was laid out fantastically in my opinion. The only issue I may have had was that the ending may have been a little rushed. With a story as fabulous as this, as a reader I was looking for more out of the ending. I loved the ending but it came to quickly in my opinion. I feel it’s an ending which should have taken some time to come through and really, it was the only issue I had. Overall, my first Georgia Le Carre book was a success. I completely fell for this fairytale-ish, beautiful story. I completely lost myself in the character’s tragedies and I enjoyed spending my time reading it. I look forward to reading more of her works. I was his. I was meant to be his. From the very day that I was born. It sounded like a fable to my rational mind. But it was the truth. My Truth.

    3.5 Fairy Tale Stars! Not bad. A very quick read. I am a complete sucker for a Beauty and the Beast story. This one was pretty dark and fucked up to start. Could've used a lot more time at the castle with Guy and Lena. Overall ok, but seemed rushed. Good plot twist though... Never saw that coming! Recommend it if you wasn't a quick, intense read with some decent smut. 3.5 Fairy Tale Stars! Not bad. A very quick read. I am a complete sucker for a Beauty and the Beast story.

    For some reason this book was popping up everywhere, enticing me to read it with its promise of a Beauty and the Beast story, which I generally like. Georgia Le Carre definitely knows how to put a sentence together. Her writing is truly lovely and evocative, but this was a terrible book. I don't know that I've ever had this reaction before ... adored the writing, but hated the book. That's why I'm somewhere in between 1 and 2 stars.

Georgia Le Carre definitely knows how to put a sentence together. Her writing is truly lovely and evocative, but this was a terrible book. I don't know that I've ever had this reaction before ... adored the writing, but hated the book. That's why I'm somewhere in between 1 and 2 stars. In short, this is a disturbing tale of a girl sold into sex slavery by her sadistic father who then falls in love with her purchaser. That kind of story can work, on the whole I'm not opposed to dark storylines, but they ride a fine line. And here we were taken over the edge. Perhaps Le Carre's skill as a writer is to blame. Lena's early life is so appalling and painted with such careful and accomplished detail that I was really with her, nearly biting my nails to see what would happen next. However, the initial encounter between Lena and Guy was so horrific, that I couldn't ever get past it and recognize or appreciate the "love" that somehow grew. The sex scenes were kind of unbearable and reminded me of the cringeworthy ones in Close Liaisons. This isn't a BDSM story -- they can make pain sound pleasurable -- here it just feels uncomfortable and creepy. And yet Lena falls under the spell of her "master" for no discernible reason. We get a few brief scenes from Guy's POV, but most of it is in Lena's head as she's enduring pain and abuse, and then random tenderness, and then disregard. And Guy has a secret that is poorly revealed and is probably designed to create some empathy for him, but I was just over it. The last quarter of the book is so haphazardly slapped together and rushed, it's kind of laughable. It feels like it's plucked from another book entirely. Or like Le Carre was struggling to meet some deadline. Just ugh.

    5 Unique Stars I've been a loyal fan of Miss Le Carre's writing since her Billionaire Banker series. She has a natural ability for capturing reader's attention, keeping their eyes pressed to their tablets until they've finally reached the end of her captivating stories. Disfigured Love was beautifully written. I love the mesh of old and new world and the blending of sweet and dark romance.

After a beginning like that I knew the rest of the story had to be amazing and I was right to assume so. Lena and Guy share a relationship unusual to any other couples in the fictional world. She was literally bought for a substantial price to be Guy's sex slave. He wasn't gentle to her nor was he sensitive to her emotions, but in the end, love softened his hardened heart and he was able to find the hidden light in his desolate world. The ending is how it should be, especially with the bonus epilogue;) No spoilers here. Read it for yourself to find out.

First thing first, the blurb implied a story of The Beauty and The Beast. So yes, I was definitely in. But then I was lost in the time sequence of what happened in this book. I was quite confused either this book was set in 90's or in the present time. There were things missing that actually could have elaborated more so the readers could be more immersed into the story. The last was the ending. I thought it was ended a bit rashly, which I didn't mind since I just slept at 3.30 AM just to finish this book, but I could have been more satisfied if the ending went the other way around. Overall, I didn't think sacrificing my sleeping beauty was worth the story. My sleeping beauty should be worth 5 stars, at the very least.
