* ''The Fire Rose'' (another one by Creator/MercedesLackey, this one nominally part of her ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' [though YMMV]. More importantly, this one doesn't start with the Beauty being called in so she can break the curse by falling in love with the Beast: the Beast is a magician and he needs her help to find a magical answer since she's skilled in the languages he needs her to decipher.)

* InformedAttribute: The reader is told that [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold the Beast has a heart of gold,]] but considering that his first action was to threaten [[DisproportionateRetribution Beauty's father with either death or enslavement of a family member for picking a rose,]] he only shows kindness to Beauty because he [[EntitledToHaveYou expects her to eventually marry him,]] and does not have any major character development, many readers are skeptical of that assertion.

[[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/beautybeast/index.html "Beauty and the Beast"]] is an old French FairyTale that was, at the time, basically propaganda for ArrangedMarriage using RagsToRoyalty. Over time it has lost that meaning and become more romanticized. The original literary version of the story was written in 1740 by Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve, and was a sprawling and convoluted affair of {{contrived coincidence}}s and last-minute exposition, in which the Beast and Beauty were revealed to be [[DoubleInLawMarriage double]] [[KissingCousins first cousins]], [[HalfHumanHybrid half-fairy]] (on their mothers' side), and [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses royalty]] (on their fathers' side). In 1756, Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont condensed it to the version which is best known today (excepting Disney's). While using tropes found in older folk fairy tales, de Villeneuve's version is the first to use the title "Beauty and the Beast", and the psychological plot -- revolving around Beauty's mental conflict -- is not found in folk tales prior to this one.

* GildedCage: In every version, though there are variations, Beauty's father was to be killed by the beast. When she takes her father's place in the castle, she is waited on hand and foot by the castle's servants, on the condition she can never leave and the Beast asks for her hand in marriage.
