When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James
When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James is a take on the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. Linnet, the beauty in the story, was caught kissing a visiting Prince and is ruined for marriage. Piers Yelverton, the Earl of Marchant is the beast. He is a doctor who lives in Wales where his bad temper runs almost everyone off. Both parents see their marriage as the answer to a problem. Of course, this is not a match made in heaven. Throw in some old history between Piers and his Father, Linnet’s wit and charm and you have the makings of a good story.
When Beauty Tamed the Beast is a cute story. I liked both Piers and Linnet and there were other memorable characters and secondary plots that added spice to the book.
I purchased When Beauty Tamed the Beast from Borders.
