The family complication in debut author Jessica Sims's Beauty Dates the Beast stems from the fact that the heroine's sister Sara tends to sprout fur when she gets upset: in short, she's a rogue werewolf, hiding her furry tendencies from other local shape-shifters. Bathsheba, meanwhile, is an entirely normal human, who happens to work for a dating agency that caters to the paranormal crowd. Employees – especially humans – are strictly forbidden to date the agency's clients … but what's a girl to do when a super powerful were-cougar demands that she produce the date he was promised? Bathsheba tries reasoning with Beau Russell, leader of the were-cougar clan, to no avail. She ends up going on that date herself. If Beau finds out, Sara will be handed off to a voracious, and short-on-females, werewolf clan. Bathsheba will do anything to protect her little sister – as Beau discovers, along with the disconcerting realization that she's the one person in the world whom he can't bend to his will.
