"Nothing gets me to a bookstore faster than a new novel by Eloisa James."

--New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn

A wonderful spin on a much-beloved fairy tale, New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James's When Beauty Tamed the Beast is heart-soaring and fun historical romance at its finest.

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?

Cross post from my per...
Cross post from my personal blog rabidgummibear.wordpress.comI recently read the first book in this series even though each book is completely stand alone. I knew I'd probably be pretty fond of this book just because of the Beauty And The Beast references. Though that doesn't mean I forgive it for all it's faults. The story takes place in the typical regency era of Eloisa James novels. We start by meeting a stereotypically beautiful girl named Linnet who has a bit of a very tame affair with the Prince. This ends up harming her reputation in the ton and her father rushes to marry her off to this grumpy man nicknamed the Beast or in reality the Earl of Marchant. The rest of Linnet's marriage conspiracy with her relatives revolves around her attempting to use her typical immediate wooing abilities on the beast, but this of course does not really work. Eventually somebody in this story bends unexpectedly and there are some minor changes that begins to unravel a much deeper plot line. This book deals a lot with the psyche of the Beast and why he believes that he will never get married. The final twist is quite a surprise that I honestly did not expect.I felt like this book was good and had better legs to stand on than the first one in this series. Linnet had a lot of wit and challenge towards the beasts more standoffish qualities. After first hearing the descriptions of how 'perfect' Linnet was thought to be I was surprised to find how likeable she became as the book carried on, but a lot of that for me was contributed to her wit. The Beast was a regency version of House and that was a bit off putting for me at first, but I quickly got over it with the looks into his psyche. I also found the end of the book to be a major emotional roller coaster which pretty much stunned me.Overall 4/5 stars. It was a fun read and super quick. I recommend it if you manage to find it on the cheap (under $5). Realize that you probably won't put this book down either though.

I just couldn't get into this book. Discussion between her father and aunt near the beginning was ridiculous. After about 100 pages I gave up. Beautiful Linnet gets engaged to Piers, a doctor and an earl.

Linnet Thrynne has jus...

Linnet Thrynne has just thoroughly botched up her debut first season. What started as a harmless flirtation with a prince has ended in her being the talk of the ton. Of course she knew that a prince could never marry the daughter of a lowly viscount but it was just a bit of kissing- a bit of kissing witnessed by the Duchess, mind you and now Linnet is ruined. Ruined, thanks to the kiss, the refusal of the prince and well, a ball gown that had far too many ruffles around the middle for people to believe that it was just a kiss. Now she's to be bundled off to Wales, rumored royal bun-in-the-oven and all, and given in marriage to a Duke's son. This would seem like a fortunate turn of events if it wasn't for the fact that the only reason the Duke desires the match is because his son is incapable of siring a child and he wants an heir with a tinge of royal blood. But there's no baby, and soon Linnet will have to break the news to her new fiancé, a man everyone refers to as The Beast. I fell in love with Eloisa James when I read the first book in this series, A Kiss at Midnight. It was so witty and funny and wildly romantic that I ran out and picked up a few more of her books. Her writing is gorgeous and she writes the most adorable characters! She makes even the bad guys loveable. This little story was so much more than I expected. With all the Beauty and the Beast overtones, I was expecting something much more predictable than I got. I adored Piers, The Beast, instantly. He's a remarkably gifted doctor with the very worst bedside manner and where one would expect that he'd fall face first under the spell of his new Beauty, it's quite the opposite in fact. He openly mocks her coquettish behavior and refuses to be another of her ballroom conquests and why shouldn't he? After all, he is completely unaffected by her, having suffered a debilitating injury that has left him, ahem, immune to her charms. Linnet is forced for the very first time to rely on something other than her beauty to get her out of her most unfortunate situation. I laughed and laughed at this story, until I started crying like a big burbling idiot towards the end where it takes a most unexpected turn. I plan on reading each and everyone one of Miz Eloisa's books because I just love her characters and her excellently crafted little worlds. If you are a fan of happy romances, regency ones at that, you'll fall just in much in love with this book as I did.

When Beauty Tamed the Beast4.5 StarsSynopsisLinnet Berry Thrynne is the belle of the ball until she is dumped by a prince and snubbed by the ton. Her only prospects are to marry Piers Yelverton the misanthropic Earl of Marchant nicknamed the Beast. Will he succumb to her charms or will she fall for a man incapable of loving her in return?ReviewA sexy and steamy retelling of the traditional Beauty and the Beast tale and a must read for lovers of historical romance. Piers is obviously modeled on my favorite TV doctor, Gregory House (didn't need the historical note to confirm this). He is scarred, tortured and downright rude but not nearly as beastly and irascible as I thought he would be. Linnet is beautiful both outside and in, and she never allows Piers to bully or intimidate her. Their verbal sparring is witty and snarky, and their steamy scenes sensual and sexy. My one small issue is with Linnet's father and aunt who are ridiculous caricatures but the rest of the secondary cast from the nosy butler to the endearing boy and his flea bitten dog are simply wonderful.Run, do not walk, to the nearest bookstore or website and get this book.

This book was so good!...

This book was so good! The chemistry between Piers and Linnet is astounding. They may be fighting and bickering a lot but they were made for each other and the fact that they could deny it for so long only made for a surprisingly better read. I'm very glad that they didn't give in until the end and that the roles were reversed, making the hunter the hunted. I am rather sad though that what happened to Linnet happened but all's well that ends well - as people say. The epilogue is particularly sweet.
