When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James

Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty … Naturally, she’s betrothed to a Beast.

Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses. And rumor also has it that a wound has left the earl immune to the charms of any woman.

Linnet is not just any woman.

She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees. She estimates the earl will fall madly in love in just two weeks.

Yet Linnet has no idea of the danger posed to her own heart by a man who may never love her in return.

If she decides to be very wicked indeed… what price will she pay for taming his wild heart?

Enchanting historical romance

From page one I was engrossed with this book. The characters jumped off the page and you couldn’t help but love them, root for them and want them desperately to find a way to be together.

Linnet was a very beautiful woman and while she was aware of that fact, and used it to her best advantage, you never got the impression she was spoilt and I liked her from the get go. Piers too could quite easily have been a character that was hard to like with his temper and grumpy demeanor. Quite the opposite was true and I loved him. Together the pair had chemistry and spark as well as fabulous banter and enjoyable sparring dialogue.

“…an enchanting historical romance that you can lose yourself in…”

The plot was fast paced and kept you turning the pages. This is the kind of novel that you can’t stop thinking about when you put it down and want to talk about with anyone that will listen. I was on the edge of my seat during the dramatic ending and I just adored the epilogue.

If you’re looking for an enchanting historical romance that you can lose yourself in for an afternoon then I would highly recommend this novel to you.
