Sequel to: The princess and the fangirl.
In this adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale, the teenaged star of a popular science fiction movie franchise hides out in a small town, following a tabloid scandal, and meets the bookish Rosie Thorne who is still grieving over her mother's death.

Rosie Thorne is feeling stuck: on her college application essays, on that mysterious General Sond cosplayer she met at ExcelsiCon, but most of all in her grief over her mother's death. Her only solace was her late mother's library of rare Starfield novels, but the family sold it to pay off hospital bills. Vance Reigns has always been Hollywood royalty, with all the privilege and scrutiny that entails. After a tabloid scandal, he's forced to hide out in Small Town USA. At least there's a library in the house... too bad he doesn't read. When their paths collide and a rare book is accidentally destroyed, Rosie finds herself working to repay the debt. She thinks Vance is a jerk, and she can't stand him. The feeling is mutual. But they may just find that there is more risk in shutting each other out than in opening their hearts.-- adapted from jacket
