Rufus can be a bit beastly towards people, "no. It will be a miracle if I do not catch my death of cold. If I am not warm, well fed, and undisturbed for the rest of the night, there will be hell to pay." Our girl Belle seems to bring out the nice side of him, "you are most welcome," he said. Then claimed her mouth with his." I liked seeing Rufus grow from beast to a caring person all because of Belle, "why so sad on such a wonderful night?" he asked, frowning down at her in concern. "Are you not enjoying yourself? Has someone upset you?" I liked this book I loved Rufus.
