Publisher's Summary

In this modern-retelling of "Beauty and the Beast", Savannah Carmichael, betrayed by an unreliable source, returns to her hometown of Danvers, Virginia, with her once-promising journalism career in ruins. Given the opportunity to get back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn't been seen since.
After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher's hand and disfigured half of his face, he's lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy... that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress with a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feeling things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn't felt in years.
Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other's hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they'll have to decide if the love they found in one another's arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after.

A BREATHTAKING JOURNEY OF TRUST, BETRAYAL & LOVE

This listen pulls at your heart strings, not because of the tender, sweet love story that developed between the beautiful sweet natured Savannah and the scarred hermit Asher, no.... it was the bitter betrayal. You know it's coming but nothing prepares you for the extent of pain that the heartbreaking shocking revelation will cause both Savannah and Asher.

Great addictive bitter-sweet love story as Asher tells of the tragic IED incident that changed his life (which is unfortunately all too real today) and there's a lovely paced yet quick to develop romance because the attraction and chemistry was there from the start as Savannah could look beyond his scars and found the mentally wounded man underneath. Beautiful words and romantic scenes make you feel the love between these two characters. With Savannah's love and support Asher slowly begins to rejoin the living once more but the price he would pay for his misguided trust in her nearly broke him and caused a deeper pain than the IED.

Worth a credit? Dual POV's, supportive secondary characters, sex, all American Hero, a naive Heroine and a good narrator made this a very enjoyable creditworthy listen.

What did you love best about The Vixen and the Vet?

Bethany (The Book Bee) and I had talked about buddy-reading The Vixen and The Vet for what seems forever ago, and I’m so darn glad we finally got around to actually doing it! I’m kicking myself for not having read it sooner! I’ve LOVED all of Katy’s books that I’ve had the privilege of reading, so I knew I’d love this one. While Bethany read an e-copy, I listened to the audio version, which is what I recommend you all do. I honestly fell irrevocably in love with this audio book!

Oh, my word! Katy Regnery is brilliant with words and this book was true literary perfection! A passionate, emotional, moving, and downright epic novel, The Vixen and The Vet was a 6-star read for me! A work of art! It’s been a WHILE since I’ve been able to rate anything 6 stars, so I’m elated over the fact that I finally fell in love with a book THAT much again!

This beautifully written romance evoked from me practically every emotion known to mankind! The narration was top-notch and it truly brought this amazing story to life. Rose Hudson nailed it! I was hooked. Once I started listening I could NOT stop. I was 1000% engrossed in this audio book. There were times where I felt as if I was spying on a very intimate conversation between two lovers! And let me just tell you, Asher and Savannah’s story was one heck of a phenomenal romance with quite the buildup!

Asher and Savannah were in many ways similar, but in a lot more ways, just what they each needed in life. They not only completed each other, but they pushed each other to be a better person. Their conversations and interactions were very realistic and easy to follow. I even found myself laughing at some of their sarcastic remarks. The chemistry and connection between the two was pure and the steam factor throughout the book was HOT. Those sex scenes? Oh, my! Nothing even remotely close to those in Katy’s Heart of Montana Series, LOL! Aaaanyway…. There was one part in particular that despite me knowing it would happen, I still felt absolutely crushed!!! Good gosh! I had been nervous and anxious the entire time leading up to that scene and I was left devastated for Asher and Savannah! Like I said above, Katy Regnery has a way with words that will leave you breathless! WONDERFUL.

Truthfully, Asher and Savannah are a couple that will forever be engraved in my heart. This book is truly a MUST READ. One that I HIGHLY recommend you one-click NOW. Katy Regnery is an author you must not miss! SIX BEAUTIFULLY EMOTIONAL STARS!!
