Undone by His Touch - Annie West
Hot, sexy ... which is what I expected from a book in the Harlequin Presents line. I also expected emotion, but what I got was a story that spun the Beauty and the Beast trope in a new way.

A lot of times, romance novels give the hero a key role in creating/affirming the heroine's sense of self-worth. In "Undone by His Touch" Chloe is responsible for her own self-worth. It's hard-earned, and she's not surrendering it. I really liked that emotional maturity.

A lovely read with a hero who isn't perfect (you'll love him anyway) and a heroine who isn't a goody two shoes, but steps up to own her life and decisions.
