When Beauty Tamed The Beast

When Beauty Tamed The Beast

‘Nothing gets me to a bookstore faster than Eloisa James’ – Julia Quinn

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

If only her gown hadn’t been so fully cut, or she hadn’t been caught kissing that prince . . . But now the ton believes Linnet to be with royal child – and therefore unmarriageable – so she might as well make her desperate father happy by consenting to wed a beast.

A brilliant surgeon with a reputation for losing his temper – and a wound believed to have left him . . . incapable – Piers, Earl of Montague, should welcome a bride-to-be carrying a ready-made, blue-blooded heir. But Piers isn’t fooled by the lady’s subterfuge, and though Linnet’s devilishly smart and charming with a loveliness that outshines the sun, there will be no wedding of beauty to beast.

Still, Linnet finds the gorgeous brute intriguing, with a spark of gentility behind his growl that’s worth fanning. And it’s obvious to the naked eye that ‘incapable’ does not mean ‘uninterested’…

Julia Quinn, <i> New York Times </i> bestselling author
A breathtaking addition to James's series of reimagined fairy tales... [A] funny, offbeat, deliciously sensual story that takes the famed fairy tale to a new level with its vivid description and exquisite writing

With an amusing cast of characters and two principals who are both beautiful and beastly at times, this is an enrapturing bedtime story
Bookpage
There are only a handful of romance authors who could have written a touching, fun, and engaging story by blending a fairytale and a television show. Eloisa James is obviously one of them
The New York Journal of Books
Treat yourself to a fairy tale that will keep you enchanted from 'once upon a time' til 'they lived happily ever after'
