While others looked with their eyes and saw a Monster, she looked with her eyes and saw a Man.

The Monster

Lord Edgar Kaiser was tormented his entire life by his dreaded mother as she raised him to be what the outside world saw him: a monster. Hiding his monstrosities and horrid doings within the
darkness, Edgar merely became a fragment of nightmares of the children of 19th century London, that is until he begins to grow a dangerous bloodlust he thought he rid years ago.

The Butterfly

Ever since the death of her mothers twenty years ago and losing her family's fortune, Sophie Wickes had been keeping watch over her destitute family. When she becomes the gardener for the
mysterious Edgar Kaiser, she is unaware of the wonders, as well as horror, that awaits her.

A Tale Unlike Any Other

Despite his intentions toward the beauteous Sophie, Edgar is surprised to find himself coming to care for the woman. He begins to care for her enough that he even goes as far as to ask for her and
in marriage at the end of each night. Sophie herself even begins to find herself coming to care for Edgar, even though she had never laid her eyes on him. But when she meets a handsome innkeeper,
little does she know she has put her and her new lover in the looming shadow of the bloodthirsty Lord Kaiser.

Loosely based on the stories of Beauty and the Beast and The Phantom of the Opera.
