Maiden and the Monster by Michelle M. Pillow
I have heard good things about this author and was excited to get to try her. I was not disappointed. Now my least favorite genre is medieval historical because of the way women are treated and portrayed. I liked this one. It is not paranormal, I was not sure with the title and description. But it was an good story and had some really good scenes.

Vladamir of Kessen, Duke of Lakeshire Castle, is feared as a demon in the land of Wessex. The Kings have granted him a title of nobility in exchange for his part as a political prisoner. Discontent, he bides his time in his new home until war will once again rip through the land. But boredom soon turns to devious pleasure as the daughter of his most hated enemy is left for dead at his castle gate. Now the monster bides his time plotting revenge.

Lady Eden of Hawks' Nest doesn't know what to think of the man who saved her life, but she can't wrench her thoughts away. His words are those of a tyrant, true to his vicious reputation, but his touch is that of a man, stirring passion and lust when there should only be fear. It would seem the infamous monster is not as monstrous as he appears.
