The moment I saw her she woke something buried deep inside of me.
A wild need.
A desperate desire.

She’s stranded and alone, needing shelter from the storm.
And I’ll do more than keep her warm.

I will have her.

Some say there’s no such thing as happily ever afters.
But that changes tonight.

I will show her I’m more than a mountain man.

I am her beast.

Carol [Goodreads Addict]
Beauty and the Mountain Man is by Frankie Love. Every so often I just need a sexy mountain man and I always look to this author. She has so many to choose from and this time I ended up with the beast that lives on the mountain. I do admit, this one seemed a little more cheesy than some, or maybe it was just me this time. But it still was a fun interlude with a quick, guaranteed happy ever after.

I love reading Beauty and The Beast theme and I was so excited to read this one. Sadly, I can't connect with the characters. I tried but I didn't feel any connection.

The story is about Ronan and Bella.

He's the general contractor of Lachlan Groups and now, he's living alone in a mansion he inherited from his mother.

Still finishing her teaching degree, she's on her way home for the holidays but she got stuck in the snow storm. She needed a place to stay until the storm passes. He let her in and t

Another moody Alpha mountain man by the very talented Frankie Love. My only complaint is I’m a sucker for details and maybe I’m a bit OCD but I like to know the H’s last name and age. Ronan is living a solitary life in a mansion on a mountain since his beloved Mother died. His Mom had the place built in the last year of her life while he was living in the Swiss Alps working as a general contractor for his step-dad’s company. His Mom was sick and by the time he got home she was already dead and h ...more

Sizzling Beast

This is a very cute and sweet story. More than that, Bella and Ronan are sizzling in this retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed the heat as well as the steps that Ronan took to right their world.

There was also a bonus book in here, Let's 'Merry Christmas'. This was a pleasant surprise! CeeCee is having a horrible day that is amplified when she has to fight (dirty) for a seat on a plane. What happens next is comical that turns sweet that turns smoking hot. There's a fun twist

To be honest i read it just because I’m bored I never thought it would be that good
3.5 Stars
This story is short, fast paced and a nice read. I read this book within half and hour and was satisfied throughout. The writing style is easy to follow, the characters are likeable and the storyline is enjoyable. Elements of this story were like a modern day version of beauty and the beast (hence why the name probably is what it its).
I was a little confused once or twice. Ronan saw Belle and knew she was the woman for him. They sleep together and then he suddenly see’s it as just sex

Beauty and the Mountain Man by Frankie Love.

The queen of mountain men is back. I just love the instant-love and men who are crazy about their women. Ronan has been alone for far too long and wants someone who understands him and his solitary life. When Bella is going home from college to surprise her dad but ends up being stranded in the snow only to show up at Ronan doorstep. These two are meant to be but once they come down from cloud 9 they find themselves bumping heads. Ronan knows she belo

Leave it to the Ahhh Mazing Frankie to not only give (ME), ummm I mean US another Hot, sexy as hell, beloved Mountain Man, but to incorporate one of the best Fairytales out there is "Genius" ! From the intimidating first impression (Ronan) to the feisty (Bella), this story takes you on the journey the "real" Beauty and the Beast should have been. ( well that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it) well it has to be specifically "x-rated" of course, but come on, isn t that what we ladies crave, sizz ...more

Frankie Love has written a perfect modern day insta-love tale with a twist. Very Beauty and the Beast but just with modern day conveniences and the perfect library. I loved this story and how Beauty broke through the Beast's walls and helped give him purpose and determination again.

I'm so sorry

I HATE leaving horrible reviews, but I couldn't stop with this one. I made it to 25% before I stopped reading. I am a HUGE fan of Alexa Riley, Madison Faye, and Olivia T Turner, and anyone familiar with their work knows most of their stuff is OTT, instalove/lust short stories less than 200 pages. Ergo, I have zero issue with obscuring reality, and reading trashy smut; in fact I. LOVE. IT.......when it is well written. This story did not work for me one bit. I felt no connection betwe

I absolutely loved this book. I went in expecting more of a "Beauty and the Beast" type story line and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as "Beauty and the Beasty" as I thought it would be.

This story has some Beauty and the Beast elements, but it's so much more. This story is filled with hot sex and an instalove romance for the books. This book has broken OTT Alpha male and a strong family loving herione. Our Beast doesn't realize how his family has hurt the town or Bella, but he soon fim

Beauty and the Mountain Man
By: Frankie Love
Narrated by: Kira Omans

I enjoyed this story, it is well written and well told with interesting storylines. Frankie Love fit a lot of story in her novella. The characters are nicely developed, the chemistry between Bella and Ronan was smoking hot. There was some nice drama, he was not who she thought he was. It was nice that Ronan had a lot of heart, also nice how it all worked out in the end. Thanks for this enjo

Beauty and the Mountain Man is a beautiful tale that the author puts her own spin on the classic Fairytale Beauty & The Beast. This novella has some of the elements of Beauty and the Beast, however it offers so much more. What do you get when a sweet fiesty female Bella meets Ronan an enticingly masculine alpha Mountain Man with a beastly side a sugary sweet adaptation tale brimming with fabulous characters, undeniable chemistry, sexy moments, a twisty plot, & a bit of humour. A perfect evening ...more

Bella has come home to visit her father however she is three days early and gets stuck in a snowstorm.

Ronan believes he is a beast as he feels he let down the only person he loved and now he has barricaded himself in his mansion and doesn’t believe he deserves anyone in his life.

When Bella knocks on his door their chemistry is hot even though his attitude is surly. Two days together is all they need to warm up the mansion but what happens when their pasts are revealed?

This is a quick steamy rete

I loved this so much!

This story is a great twist on Beauty and the Beast, as always Frankie spins a web of lust, love and longing for more.

Ronan and Bella are a cute, unique couple that will grab your heart and wish for more.

Bella is coming home for the holidays to see her father, and ends up stuck in a snow storm. At her wits end, she see a house, and knocks on the door to hopefully get some help.

What she does get is so much more.

I'm a sucker for retellings of fairy tales, in a new modern way.

Ronan is not truely a beast, but he has been secluded and dealing with grief and loss. His people skills could use some work.

Bella is your act before you think kind of heroine. She gets herself stuck in the woods in a snowstorm.

I mean put two people in a big mansion for a couple days to wait out a storm with no electricity and just guess what happens. But it's more than just dirty times, they fall for each other. Swoon.

I love reading Frankie Love books which are usually super hot but this one also incorporated a standing fairy tale and beyond in the story line.

It's unbelievable that Bella would show up at a time when Ronan absolutely knew without a doubt she was the woman sent to alleviate the loneliness and despair he was feeling.
His first sight of her stirred something primal in him, something that only she could tame.

This book is filled with love, hope, lust and happy endings.

Frankie Love's latest novella, Beauty and the Mountain Man, is a wonderful twist of the class Beauty and the Beast. This story, despite its limited pages, provides an enchanting story of two unlikely individuals thrust together and discovering something neither ever expected - but in Frankie Love's characteristic style!! A romantic suspense that is full of allure, a mix of drama, and dynamic chemistry unfolds from these pages and it's a story that will melt you from the inside out. A great story ...more
Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
In typical Frankie Love fashion, she has taken a whimsical fairytale and added love, smut and hot chemistry. Getting stranded in a snowstorm, Belle finds herself on Ronan’s front steps in need of a place to sleep. But this virginal young lady gets her hearts desires when Ronan shows his beastly side. Not only was their instant chemistry with great characters but an adorable storyline that was an enjoyable read. And who could ever pass up a well stocked library.

Love the mountain man!

Ronan’s heart is frozen and closed from guilt. He didn’t do what he should have and there’s no way he can fix it. Now he’s locked away on his mountain alone.
Bella’s trying to get home through a monster snowstorm. She overestimates her car’s ability to make the mountain pass and gets stuck near the only house for 10 miles. Lucky for her there’s a beast waiting to save her.
Great book! I love Frankie Love books. I can’t wait for more!

Once again Frankie Love demonstrates why she is a go to author for me when I want a quick insta-love read. This is a bit of the mountain man take on beauty and the beast with plenty of sweet and steamy scenes. Both of these characters are what we come to expect from this author and I think readers will enjoy their story. If you haven't taken a chance on this author, I would recommend you give any one of her Mountain Men books a will become a fan. ...more
dammit I love these mountain men books..... this one, inspired by beauty the beast, was great. girl is stranded in the snow, finds huge Manson in the mountains. a big hulk of a beastly mountain man answers the door. insta love!! ok maybe insane lust! he knows she is what he's been waiting for, she can't help but to fantasize about this mountain man being hers.

a little drama, meaning some wolves, and drama over who he is.. but it's all settled and they live happily ever after.

Frankie Love definitely has the perfect recipe for a romance filled with insta goodness, plot, and sexy times. A romantic Frankie love rendition of Beauty and the Beast, this had all the elements of a fairy tale read. There is twists and I the alpha behavior that oozes off of our Hero is super drool worthy!

Another Five Star Frankie LOVE hit! She is my to go for short perfect reads.
