Phantom of the Opera - Phantomesque Titles

The books below are ones that are similar to Phantom of the Opera. Most are Beauty and the Beast retellings, and since Phantom is a Beauty and the Beast retelling itself, I thought it a good idea to add them.

This page is getting pretty long, so I'm going to categorize these, but keep them all on the same page. They will be listed in the same order as the 'books' section is. Click on the genre you want, and you'll be brought down to the portion of the page where those books are listed.

Cyrano de Bergerac
ISBN: 0553213601 (1959)
Bantam Classics; Reissue edition

One of my favorite plays of all time. Takes place 17th Century France. Cavalier period. Cyrnao de Bergerac has a very, very large nose which, he feels, makes him very ugly. But, he's wonderful with words. He's in love with his cousin, Roxanne, but due to his facial features, he thinks she'll never have him. Enter Christopher, a young, handsome gentleman, who Roxanne is attracted to, as is Christopher to her..only he doesn't know how to speak to women, doesn't know how to write, etc etc. Cyrano and Christopher team up and win Roxanne's heart. A few movies have been made out of this wonderful play, and Steve Martin's movie, Roxanne was based on this play, as well as the movie The Truth about Cats and Dogs starring Uma Thurman and Janeane Garofalo.

Sometimes the Soul : Two Novellas of Sicily (Vintage Contemporaries)
ISBN: 0375707220 (1999)
Vintage; 1st Vintage Contemporaries ed edition
In print
From amazon.com
Two rich, witty novella-length fables feature women struggling to develop their artistic and intellectual voices against the colorfully rendered backdrop of traditional Sicilian households. The first novella, "A Knot of Tears (Un Gruppu di Chiantu)," is set in Palermo around the turn of the century and features Costanza, a baroness who has hidden herself away at a friend's house and turned into a virtual hermit. Her life begins to change when a parrot flies through her window and its owner, a charming, storytelling young sailor (a male Scheherezade) comes looking for the bird. Timpanelli's considerable skill as a professional storyteller shines as she effortlessly guides the reader through her nested-box narrative?each level illuminating the others in a delicate and tangled pattern that gives the story a quiet elegance.
The second novella, "Rusina, Not Quite in Love," retells the Beauty and the Beast tale, once again in a not too distant past. Poor Rusina, a landscape painter, marries rich, ugly but sensitive Sebastian to pay off her father's debts; then she finds in Sebastian both the inspiration she needs for her art and a version of love that she had not known. Despite their brevity, these tales bewitch the reader with their intelligence and warmth

From amazon.com
When illusionist Chase Quinn brashly challenges the longstanding curse of the Tucker mine and ends up disappearing the very day that Jenna Grey is jilted for the third time, fate takes a hand. In order to pick up the threads of his life, Chase must face the thing that he fears most-marriage-which Jenna no longer thinks highly of, along with men. Things are further complicated by the fact that Chase is invisible! Unfortunately, what begins as a promising situation quickly becomes tedious and irritating, and even Bretton's fast pace and lively style can't quite make this one come together. Bretton has written a number of well-received romances, including Tomorrow and Always, published last year in hardcover by Harlequin and now out in paperback.

When reclusive, haunted Anatole St. Leger bows to fate and commands that the Bride Finder make him a match, he expects only a marriage of convenience, not a passionate love. But he reckons without the powers of the title character, his future wife's determination, or the family ghost. Beautifully vivid descriptions, captivating characters, and a magical plot with a few unexpected twists will not disappoint readers as this classic Beauty and the Beast legend takes on new, occasionally darker, dimensions. A first rate story of courage, acceptance, and the healing power of love by the author of Parker and the Gypsy (Silhouette, 1997).

Celiese, the lovely slave girl, gasped when her betrothed emerged from the shadows. She had been secretly sent in her mistress's place to wed the much-feared Mylan. But instead of the cruel savage she had expected, he was a magnificently handsome warrior. His cool topaz gaze unnerved her. The fire in his touch sent shivers of unfamiliar desire down her spine. And the sweet madness of his burning kiss as he trapped her within an iron embrace made her forget her past, abandon all reason, and surrender herself- if only for one night-to the pleasures of passion's fire. Mylan stared in astonishment at the woman before him. Instead of the spoiled, pampered innocent he had expected, she was a radiant silver-blonde beauty. The hot flush of her cheeks disarmed him. Gathering her into his arms, he silenced her startled protest with a slow, wanton kiss and awakened her supple flesh with tender, searching carresses. He would teach her the secrets of passion, take her to ecstasy's searing heights, and forever possess her captive heart.

In Outlander, a 600-page time-travel romance, strong-willed and sensual Claire Randall leads a double life with a husband in one century, and a lover in another. Torn between fidelity and desire, she struggles to understand the pure intent of her heart. But don't let the number of pages and the Scottish dialect scare you. It's one of the fastest reads you'll have in your library. While on her second honeymoon in the British Isles, Claire touches a boulder that hurls her back in time to the forbidden Castle Leoch with the MacKenzie clan. Not understanding the forces that brought her there, she becomes ensnared in life-threatening situations with a Scots warrior named James Fraser. But it isn't all spies and drudgery that she must endure. For amid her new surroundings and the terrors she faces, she is lured into love and passion like she's never known before. --Candy Paape

    In print
    From amazon.com
    Determined to confront her past and finally lay it to rest, Joelle Randall heads for the rugged Canadian Rockies to find the site of her parents' plane crash 12 years ago. What she finds, however, is a new aspect of herself and an unexpected and passionate love in the arms of the enigmatic loner Luke Gevaudan, one of the last of the legendary race of werewolves. In this debut Krinard has spun a dark, magical, and highly lyrical tale that provides a far more gentle and romantic interpretation of the werewolf mythologies than is the norm. Well written, nicely paced, and surprisingly believable, this novel may be of interest to fans of Cheri Scotch, Lori Herter, and Anne Stuart.

    Returning to her childhood haven in the Minnesota woods, wolf researcher Alexandra Warrington, facially and psychically scarred, is seeking solace and peace; what she finds instead is a dream from her past and a choice. A reluctant werewolf hero, a heroine who is stronger than she believes, and a crazed villain combine in this tale of murder and self-discovery. In returning to the uniquely drawn world of the loup-garoux seen in her initial Prince of Wolves (Bantam, 1994), Krinard has created a story that, although not quite as passionate, is tighter, features more well-developed characters, and leaves fewer unanswered questions. Fans will be waiting for this one. Krinard lives in Concord, California. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review: Finally got around to reading this one. It started out very promising, but fell very flat towards the end. Takes place in Ballybliss, a village in the highlands of Scotland. Year is 1761. A dragon has taken possession of a ruined castle, Castle Weyrcraig, where 15 years earlier the laird of the lands was killed by the English. The only child, Bernard MacCullough, heir to all the lands was killed too. The Dragon has been threatening the villagers if they don't do his bidding. They decide to give the Dragon a virgin sacrifice, in the form of Gwendolyn Wilder, the only virgin in the village, since the other of age girls seem to all be quite promiscuous. Turns out the Dragon is nothing more than a mortal man and a friend who are scaring everyone. And, of course Gwendolyn finds herself strangely attracted to him...and almost loses her virginity to him, but at the last moment tells him no. (That must have been painful for the poor guy). I'll stop there before I give away the big secret of the Dragons'. The Dragon, interestingly enough, is described as tall, dark long hair, emerald green eyes, a little bit of chest hair, and (of course) quite well built (all romance novel males are, as usual...haven't read one where the guy is average). This book was written before the 2004 ALW movie came out, but the description is of Gerard Butler. (I wonder if the author saw him in one of his movies before, such as Dracula 2000, or Attila).
I find I was quite disappointed at how predictable the whole book was. And, thinking this was going to be more Phantomesque than it was. It had all the makings for it, but in the end, the Dragon wasn't even deformed. *sigh* I was also quite disappointed in the heroine, Gwendolyn, her indecision, touting herself to be more intelligent and headstrong than she actually was, and succombing to the man in the end.
I am giving it three stars, though, for a good start, and I did like the author's writing, and for some of the imagery she used to describe the castle, the landscape, and London.

From amazon.com
While cleaning a funeral home late one night, Summer McAfee is taken hostage when a nude male body leaps off a preparing table. Over the next few days, Summer and the badly beaten, left-for-dead Steve Calhoun struggle to elude the bad guys, which include the police. Summer moves from fearing for her life to finding the love of her life. Despite skillful plot twists, humor, and clever use of a guardian ghost (Deedee, Steve's former lover), the book has a serious flaw. Although Walking is billed as a romantic thriller, Steve's initially cruel and brutal treatment of Summer is alarming. Veteran writer Robards (Maggy's Child, LJ 1/94) should know better than to perpetuate the myth that women unconsciously want to be dominated and victimized.

From amazon.com
Sutcliffe's latest (a spin-off of Miracle) is an exemplary romance-perfect in every way. Behind it all is a Beauty-and-the- Beast plot. Desperate to escape her zealous, puritanical father, Maria Ashton takes a job as nursemaid to the Duchess of Salterdon's grandson, Trey Hawthorne. On arriving, she discovers that her charge is not a child but instead a full-grown man unable to control his speech or movements following an attack by highwaymen. In his frustration, he has fits of yelling and throwing things-which make everyone believe he is insane. Without being sanctimonious or sloppy, Maria brings sunshine, understanding and love into the tortured duke's life and pulls him back from the brink of insanity-before nearly losing him. Flawlessly plotted and written (and without relying excessively on sex), this is one of the most romantic stories in years. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From the back of the book:
Being a damsel-in-distress was a dubious distinction. When a mysterious masked man rode into her life on a dancing black steed, Miss Juliana Beveridge was all agog. That he vowed to save her from a fate worse than Death, all but caused her to swoon like some silly Gothic heroine. But when he inexplicably urged her to marry the stiff-rumped Marquis of Ranceford, Juliana suffered serious misgivings about her hero in disguise!

Not quite a Phantom book, a child is afraid of the monsters under his bed. No one believes him when he tells them about the monsters. He's told that they'll go away in the daylight, but now that it is daylight, the monsters are still coming after him.
